Fox Appear To Have Canned Plans For Independence Day 3D Re-Release, But 2012 3D Has Just Been Released In China

According to Exhibitor Relations, 20th Century Fox have decided against re-releasing Roland Emmerich‘s Independence Day in 3D. The studio is actually pretty bullish on the format so I’m pretty surprised… though they do pledge dedication to quality control in post-conversions, and it’s possible that doing this job right just wasn’t proving to be cost effective.

Maybe the film will see release as a direct to Blu-Ray 3D release, as with the recent I, Robot.

Meanwhile, Sony have this week released their 3D conversion of Emmerich’s 2012 in China. The Chinese market is hungry for 3D and 2012 was the biggest hit of 2009 at China’s box office, so we shouldn’t be too surprised at all.

I understand that the film has been re-edited somewhat in the conversion process, with more disaster footage added in and some dialogue scenes removed. As long as all of the comedy highpoints – especially the chicken reaction shot, Harrelson’s butt crack and the Queen and her corgis – are all intact, I’m happy. Oh, what a funny film 2012 is.

Funnier in 3D? We’ll likely get a chance to find out before long – I can’t see Sony keeping this release to China alone.
