The Descent coming to 3D blu-ray

Not sure how well it will work - but will wait for reviews. See link below that also mentions a few other movies in the works.

I'd double dip on The Descent if the reviews are good for the 3D.

Post conversion 3D looks so great in theaters, I'm sure it'll be just as good on home video

I love The Descent. But I'm not sure there needs to be a 3D version. The article picked a good image of Shauna Macdonald's character that expresses that it seems.

Blu-ray-only 3D conversions now. Nothing better to spend all that money on, huh?

This would have been interesting if it had been shot in 3D. Usually 3D is used to give a sense of big, wide open spaces. I don't think I've seen it used to increase a sense of claustrophobia. And, since this film did manage to convey claustrophobia in spades, I would be curious to see how that would work with a 3D effect.

But, as a conversion, I can't say that I am too intrigued.

If a film wasn't natively shot in 3D, I could really care less. Even most films that were shot in 3D does nothing for me.

I haven't seen it (it's tough catching up on Herzog films as he makes so many), but this would seem to suggest 3-D used in such a way. Obviously it's not a genre film, but I would have liked to see how this looked.
