Now does that make sense?
Yeah, I have like 6 very close to me.

Axver, and Major Panic, thanks for the info about the real-d cinema being in Melbourne... first thing I thought was: Thank God!

good idea

let's go together with a bunch of angry people and get our torches to protest in front of Bono's gates

I'll be going to the one at the Jam Factory. The other four are in Northland Shopping Centre, Knox Shopping Centre (Wantima South), Westfield Cheltenham, and Sunshine Marketplace.

I'm kind of pissed Melbourne Central doesn't have this as that's the nearest cinema to me, but at least the Jam Factory's easily accessible by tram.

I've been wondering that myself. I've Googled all over the place, and I can't seem to find it.

So what I did was, I got on Real D's mailing list. If anyone would know, they would know it first since they are the ones putting it out there.

I try to clear some things:

1. the Producers said at the Cannes Festival that the "U2 3D" film will come out in spring 2008. The information on the RealD side is very old - like the trailer, cutted before Cannes.
2. it seems that the lady from the IMAX Corporation does not know her buisness. Many films like "Superman 3D", Harry Potter 3D and Matrix III (2D)weren't shot in the IMAX format - but shown there. IMAX has developed a tool to convert usual film material like 35 mm film to the IMAX format. (by the way: they did that also with the new Rolling Stones movie - shot by Scorsese - which IMAX will shown, premiere 21. September. But this film is gonna be in 2D not in 3D like the U2 movie).
3. the U2 film was shot with the exact same cameras James Cameron shot his two 3D-IMAX movies.
3. some newspapers reported after the festival in Cannes that "U2 3D" will be shown in digital 3D Theater (like RealD) and also in IMAX theaters.

Real D is digital versus IMAX's film, so I don't see how the same cameras were used. Real D uses a single projecter (versus two), and the glasses are propietary.

again: the U2 film was shot with the same cameras James Cameron used for his two 3D-IMAX movies: "Ghosts of the Abyss" and "Aliens of the Deep". Both shot with digital 3D-HD cams - and U2 used thems for their movie - 9 cams - (we all had this informations - month, no - now a year ago...). James Cameron himself confirmed that in interviews.

edit: from imdb.com -

Ghost of the Abyss

"Camera
Custom built 3-D Camera

Film negative format (mm/video inches)
Video (HDTV)

Cinematographic process
IMAX (70 mm prints)
Reality Camera System 3-D (dual-strip 3-D)

Printed film format
35 mm (anaglyphic 3-D version)
70 mm (horizontal) (dual-strip 3-D)

I'd have to see the exact quote where James Cameron says the same cameras are used. 3ality makes the digital cameras used by U2. The IMAX website does not mention U2 3D as an upcoming film.
One quote from Real D I found was:

Quote:
REAL D is accelerating its efforts to ensure that theaters world-wide will be equipped later this year to present U2 3D to consumers with all the magic that three-dimensional imaging conveys.

“We expect to have more than 1000 REAL D systems installed by that time,” said Joseph Peixoto, President, Worldwide Cinema, REAL D. “This is the first live action presentation to be released in REAL D and truly moves the medium forward. It provides a glimpse into the future of cinematic entertainment.”
So the theaters will still have to buy Real D's projection platform.

Hmmmm...interesting...

Wiki says..."The film will be released in the third quarter of 2007."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U2_3D

GSCA says..."Release Date: Early 2008"

http://www.giantscreencinema.com/Upc...8/Default.aspx

Big Movie Zone says..."Release date: Fall 2007"

http://cyberworld.bigmoviezone.com/f...vies/?uniq=528

And straight from the horse's mouth over on U2.com...

19.05.2007
'All About The Music'

'U23D' could be showing in a thousand cinemas later this year. That's according to the production team behind the 3D film who held a press conference in Cannes this afternoon."

So it looks like to me that most of the internet is saying Fall 2007.

If it's not coming out until 2008, then I'll
