Looks Like James Bond Is Finally Going 3D This Year, And Dr. No IMAX Re-Release Planned?

It looks very much like a new Taiwanese Blu-ray re-issue of the first James Bond movie Dr. No includes a 3D up-conversion of the film. The disc has been listed in the Blu-Ray.com database, and is available to buy online.

The big twist, though, is that Moviefone have started a listing for a 3D IMAX reissue of the film in the US.

In combination, all of this seems to be pointing towards a widespread, official re-release for the film. I assume that the Taiwanese disc and IMAX reissue will be using the same up-conversion.

And then… the remaining Bond films, in sequence? That didn’t quite work for Star Wars

When I spoke to Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson ahead of the release of Skyfall, they expressed some real cynicism about shooting new films in the series in stereo and seemed pretty cool on the format overall.

On the other hand, home entertainment releases for Bond films throughout much of the world are handled by 20th Century Fox who have been very bullish on 3D – to my personal approval.

More details of Dr. No‘s stereo conversion are bound to come to light soon. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, the DVD and Blu-ray of Skyfall is out this week in both the UK and the US. It’s flat, but it sure ain’t half bad.
