Sea Rex 3D: Journey to a Prehistoric World Stereo 3D Trailer

July 21st, 2010 · 6 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


One pleasant surprise, someone actually doing the right thing and officially publishing a stereoscopic 3D promotional trailer in for their own 3D movie. Sea Rex 3D: Journey to a Prehistoric World is one of the few movies that has an officially released 3D trailer online that you can watch, unlike most with other big productions that hardly give any access to promotional 3D trailers to the viewers that have 3D capable hardware at home. Seeing a good 3D trailer of a 3D movie can make you go and watch the movie in cinema, but seeing a 3D trailer can have the opposite effect and make you not want to watch the movie in 3D and that is probably what most studios are afraid from. Still with the general lack of 3D content it is plain stupid not to take advantage of the big interest and large consumer base that already has 3D capable hardware by releasing promotional materials like 3D movie trailers, so guess who is acting stupid…

Sea Rex: Journey to a Prehistoric World is a documentary movie in 3D. In it you join Julie, an imaginative young woman, as she travels from a modern-day aquarium to the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Explore an amazing underwater universe inhabited by larger-than-life creatures including the powerful Liopleurodon, long-necked Elasmosaurus and gigantic Shonisaurus which were ruling the seas before dinosaurs conquered the earth. See science come alive in a unique and entertaining manner. Immerse yourself in a lost age, 200 million years back in time, and get ready for a face-to-face encounter with the T-Rex of the seas!

The 3D trailer is in Side by Side format, 1080p half horizontal resolution and is not with the best possible quality, but still good to watch, just don’t forget to select 16:9 aspect ration when opening it in the 3D Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player. You can also watch the trailer on YouTube 3D along with a few other materials about the movie, although they are in 2D. As usual if you download and watch the video you can share your comments about it below…

The Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk by MacGillivray Freeman is a 3D movie currently being shown at IMAX 3D cinemas. The movie combines exhilarating river-rafting action on America’s most iconic river, family fun and the grandeur of the Grand Canyon to tell an engaging story of how ordinary people can make difference for the parched planet – one that is running out of clean, fresh water so fast that the U.N. estimates that 40% of the world could face life-threatening shortages by the year 2050. Here you can download the stereo 3D trailer for the movie in 1080p half resolution (squashed), Side by Side format and watch with 3D Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player, just don’t forget to select the 16:9 aspect ration when opening the video. And you are more than welcome to share your comments about the video should you decide to download an watch it…

The Movie How To Train Your Dragon in 3D by DreamWorks

March 28th, 2010 · 6 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


Last week I was on a screening of the new movie How To Train Your Dragon in 3D by DreamWorks and I can say I’m very pleased with what I saw and I would definitely recommend you to watch the movie. The screening I saw was in a movie theater using the Dolby 3D technology for projection, so have in mind that with Real D, IMAX 3D or any other technology the viewing experience might be a bit different. Now I won’t be talking about the story of the movie in order not to spoil your fun watching it, but focus on a few key moments in the realization. I’ll just let you know that it was really interesting and fun to watch with the story really getting the attention of the audience for the whole movie and everyone seemed to like it and be quite satisfied with what they saw after the movie finished.

But now a bit more on the technology realization of the movie in 3D. First of all How To Train Your Dragon offers mostly depth effect, so the story brings you inside the screen with just a few moments when you can say things actually pop out of the screen. I personally prefer this way of doing 3D movies as you are not being impressed with “cheap effects” of things hitting you in the face, but are allowed to focus on the story without actually being distracted by the 3D effect in the movie. You’ll notice that in the movie there is a Depth of Field effect and it is there with the sole purpose to help you focus on the important parts of the scene, otherwise with too much detail on every object and the perception of depth your attention might move towards not so important elements and you can miss some of the story. Fast action was fine almost everywhere, with just a few scenes where you could notice a bit of stutter in the movement of some fast moving objects, not that this would be easily noticed by the normal viewers.

And if you’ve watched the movie already you can share your comments below…
