There's ALWAYS another Steve Williams BUT there's only "oneobgyn"

This is super great Steve, I owe you one. And you also fixed the small typo in ack's thread's title...he owes you one.
This is a happy accident that I just read your post above, because I came here specifically to add to my last post (#10), regarding James Cameron and Avatar sequels in 3D. The guy must be quite busy because he did not deliver in time Avatar's sequel #2. He's very late; as a matter of fact he's so late (busy) that there are no more TV manufacturers supporting 3D on their TVs in 2017. When you get a ball rolling you got to keep pushing it or it'll stop and something else will come up 'in the sky'. That something else is of course 4K, but it's not cooking all the way perfectly; certainly not. It is a day-to-day work in progress...
Here's the simple short video that I was going to add to my prior post number 10:
It's nothing, but I'm noticing.
I don't have a crystal ball @ home telling me what's in the future of visuals @ the movies and the sounds @ live music concert venues.
Several things are happening on various fronts, more or less spreading to our local theaters (best are big cities), and to our homes (best are knowledge and calibrators).
8K is in the future; it is already in Japan today. And my own personal guess: 3D will eventually be back...glasses-free. And there is Holography 4D.
New York has Broadway, and the musical halls, the plays, the dancers/singers...
Los Angeles has the movie stars, movie theaters, actors/actresses...
From the East coast to the West coast there is a wide field of all entertainment. From Real 3D IMAX to Live Classical Opera music concerts.
The goal is to bring the artists and their art (cinema and performance) to inside our homes in front of us in our own sound stage.
WBF's average audiophile is generally less invested in 3D than in stereo. Only few people support 3D moving pictures.
So right from the bat I know for a fact that the audience here on this aspect of 3D movie watching is @ a very minimum.
It's all ok by me, because it doesn't take an army to build a nation. ...Way of speech. The essence is the passion, and the passion can be very solitary.
Speaker's designers and builders I'm sure they know a thing or two about this.
Anyway, all of this to simply keep up-to-date with everything 3D, 4K on Blu-ray. ...Because movies matter.
And I'm looking forward to Avatar 2 in (((3D))). That, I'd go to my best 3D IMAX theater, the Real deal, the real IMAX, full size.
And later on, on 3D Blu-ray...of course. I won't buy any new 2017 TV series, only older ones with 3D capability...and 4K too.
Five years from now, roughly, I might borrow someone's crystal ball...
Michael Bay (The Rock, Pearl Harbor, Transformers Series in 3D), Steven Spielberg (Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saving Private Ryan, War of the Worlds, Jurassic Park in 3D, The Adventures of Tintin in 3D, The BFG in 3D), Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Hugo in 3D), Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Prometheus in 3D, Exodus: Gods and Kings in 3D, The Martian in 3D), Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim in 3D), Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit trilogy in 3D), Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Gravity in 3D), ...The Great Gatsby in 3D, Star Trek (the last two in 3D), Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 3D, ...James Cameron (Terminator and T2: Judgement Day, Avatar in 3D), ... just some of the best movie directors who took advantage best of the 3D technology.
Now this (because 3D is big in China): "Terminator 2" comes in 3D in August
"The 3D version of "Terminator 2 - Judgment Day" was now officially announced for August. According to StudioCanal, the 3D version of the action classic will be launched in German cinemas on August 29, The 3D version will be shown at the Berlinale on February 17th.
Originally, the Kinostart of the new 3D version was already planned for 2016, but then moved again. The time is also a bit better in the history, because in 2017 the film celebrates the 25th anniversary of its world premiere and the 29.08.1997 was the date for the planned takeover of the world heritage by "Skynet".
For the re-release of James Cameron's classic, a 3D conversion was made. In addition, "Terminator 2" was also subjected to digital remastering and 4k sampling of the original negative. For the 3D conversion the specialists of "StereoD" were responsible, who already have a good reputation for their 3D conversions in many current films.
The main reason for the new 3D version of "Terminator 2" is mainly China. When "Terminator 2" came into the cinemas in 1991, China was still not a real market for the Hollywood studios, but today a large portion of the big blockbusters' income comes mainly from Asia. Even "Terminator: Genisys" has provided more income in China alone than in the US home market.
Currently only one of the Kinostart of the new 3D version of "Terminator 2" is mentioned. A new Blu-ray Disc release with the 3D version has not yet been promised. That would be in any case to be welcomed, since the previous Blu-ray Disc version qualitatively does not correspond more to the current standard. And if perhaps even an Ultra HD Blu-ray of "Terminator 2" should appear, would be a new 4k scan anyway.
In 2019 the "Terminator" rights go back to Cameron, who is currently still primarily concerned with his "Avatar" settlements. Preparations for a new Terminator movie involving James Cameron but should already be running."
* Crossing the fingers for a future 3D BR release; anywhere in the world would do. ...And in 4K BR too.
Are you not entertained?
