Zack Snyder told us back in /zack-snyders-sucker-punch-no-longer-in-3d/July that his upcoming fantasy-adventure Sucker Punch would not be converted to 3D. The director stated, "We didn't shoot in 3-D. It's such an awesome piece of work and everyone's worked so hard to make it awesome...I don't want to screw it up with bad 3-D." This statement didn't cause any controversy at all at the time. Genre fans were actually glad that Sucker Punch was gong to be in, what Snyder himself calls, 'eye-numbing' 2D.
But now that might not be the case. A new poster for Samsung's upcoming screening series The Ultimate 3D Cinematic Experience, which is being held at the BFI (British Film Institute) IMAX theater in London, lists Sucker Punch as the 3D movie it will be screening in March of 2011. The official BFI IMAX website has no information about the upcoming Samsung Screenings. The deal between Samsung and BFI was forged back in May, before Zack Snyder declared that he was not going to convert his movie into 3D, so this may be a mistake on the part of whoever put this poster together. Or, Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have agreed to convert the film, and this is the first we're hearing about it.
