The Last Airbender is the third film this year after Clash of the Titans and Alice in Wonderland to be converted to 3D after it was finished and ready for theaters. Audience and critics alike have been quite vocal about their dislike of this post-conversion process and its so-far mediocre results. Studios may not be listening to the uproar just yet, but one director in particular is. Though Warner Bros. has long planned to convert director Zack Snyder's upcoming Sucker Punch! into a 3D movie, Snyder told MTV's Movies Blog that he may not convert the film after all.
Snyder had this to say:
"We didn't shoot in 3-D. They've talked about doing a conversion and there's been a lot of talk about us doing Sucker Punch! in 3-D, but I'm still waiting to see. We've looked at a bunch of conversions, so whether or not we have the time to do it right...I'm not going to do it if we don't have the time to really be meticulous with it. It's such an awesome piece of work and everyone's worked so hard to make it awesome, so I don't want to screw it up with bad 3-D."
Snyder also noted that he will be bringing the first footage from the film to this year's Comic-Con:
"We're coming to Comic-Con to show the first footage from the movie. We've designed this awesome footage that kind of sets the tone. It doesn't really tell the story per se, but it definitely lets you know what we're up to up there. It's pretty cool."
