Alice In Wonderland gets largest 3D rollout ever Tim Burton's new film hits theaters all across the country this weekend and it has already set a record, two days before its release. Variety is reporting that Alice in Wonderland will set a new record when it is released in 2,242 3D screens this weekend.

The mark eclipses Avatar's debut on 2,032 3D screens, which accounted for 59% of the total screen count of 3,452.

There are more 3D films coming out in the near future, though, with DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon hitting theaters on March 26 and the Sam Worthington action film Clash of the Titans arriving in 3D the next weekend, April 2.

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Michael Sheen, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Crispin Glover, Christopher Lee, Matt Lucas, Timothy Spall, Marton Csokas, Jemma Powell, Tim Piggot-Smith, Lindsay Duncan, Geraldine James, Leo Bill, Paul Whitehouse, Barbara Windsor and will hit 2D and 3D theaters nationwide on March 5.

    They charge more for 3D films because of the expense of what they have to pay for getting into the theater in the first place. The films they get aren't free for them either, everyone of them has an requirement of getting paid, it's a commission fee.

    For a theater of twelve films, is $600 dollars or more. We the audience pay the up front fee of an extra three dollars for 3D, of what the theater gets back, that way they make a profit as much as the studio does.

    Nothing is for free, why do you think 3D is catching on it's more money on both sides.
