In a surprising last minute change, Final Reel reports that filmmaker Josh Trank has cancelled the 3D release of the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot.
New promotional materials for the film had removed the ‘Real D 3D’ tags. Contacting 20th Century Fox, they received a statement from Trank: “I want the viewing experience of ‘Fantastic Four’ to remain as pure as possible for the audience, which means in 2D, just as we shot the movie.”
Speculation over the behind-the-scenes issues with the film, and the extensive reshoots that were conducted late enough that there probably wasn’t adequate time for a 3D conversion, has already run rampant. The film opens in 2D everywhere on August 7th.
