I knew this for quite a while now but, I finally got the nerve to post it here.
"Walt Disney Pictures will release a digitally remastered version of 1993's stop-motion animated classic Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas on October 20th.
"Nightmare" marks the second digital 3-D theatrical release from Disney after Chicken Little did banner business last year in digital 3-D on 84 U.S. screens at 81 locations. The digital 3-D box office returns outperformed the standard screenings nearly 3-to-1.
Burton and "Nightmare" director Henry Selick are involved in the digital remastering of the film and were "very cheered by the news" that Disney wanted to release the movie in 3-D, according to Selick.
"When visitors came to visit the set of 'Nightmare Before Christmas,' they were always amazed by the intricate sets and beautiful puppets -- that they actually existed in miniature," Selick said. "It was disappointing to see this effect lost on film. By remastering for 3-D, I hope that some of this magic can be captured and shown to the audience in a way they've never seen before."
Selick is directing Laika Entertainment's Coraline, starring Dakota Fanning, in Portland, Ore. Coraline represents the first stop-motion animated film to be shot stereoscopically with a dual digital camera rig for digital 3-D exhibition.
"Nightmare" is in the early stages of being digitally scanned and converted into 3-D by the computer-graphics group at Industrial Light & Magic.
The 3-D passive glasses that will be handed out to audiences at "Nightmare" screenings will be appropriately ghoulish and collectible."
Since I'm a big fan of TNBC I'm seeing it the first day it comes out, October 20! Anyone else going to see it? Just to let you guys know only theatres that're capable of showing Real D 3D will be showing it. More info at: www.reald.com If you go to see Monster House in Real D 3D they have a 3D trailer for NBC 3D before the movie starts and I must say the movie looks wonderful in 3D!
Please don't flame here if you don't like TNBC. Only post if you like NBC.
