Tim Burton’s Vincent to enter 3D world

If you own the The Nightmare Before Christmas (Special Edition) DVD then you’ve seen how wickedly funny Tim Burton’s short film Vincent is. It’s a clever spoof on the Frankenstein story (oops) with narration by Vincent Price (which makes it worth the price of the DVD by itself). Now comes word that Vincent will get the Real-3D treatment for a future theatrical release. It will play in front of the holiday re-release of Nightmare this October (which got the Real-3D treatment last year). So it’s double good news for those who didn’t catch the 3D version of NBC last year.

I don’t think the new 3D is going anywhere. The Meet The Robinsons 3D opening weekend box office results of $7.1 million (which represented 28% of the film’s overall three-day gross of $25.1 million on just 13% of the screens) proves that.

    I think your mixing your Burton shorts up a little. The Frankenstein spoof was “Frankenweenie.”

    I hope that the Disney 3D experiment survives. I saw Meet the Robinsons in 3D and would give it a B+. I think that if I had seen it in 2D I’d probably give it a C.

    That being said, I hope they don’t overuse the technology. Ratatouille doesn’t look like it should be in 3D. Immersive 3D worlds of the future, great use of the technology. Organic-looking adventures of a French rat, stick with 2D.

    erm 3D out performed the 2D version 2.6 to 1. Your quote proves that.

    Jeff, Thanks… travel day and my brain is fried.

    3D fan… what I meant is that it’s here to stay… ie, not going anywhere. Sorry for the confusion
