‘I, Frankenstein’ Gets a Totally Unneeded 3-D Conversion

Today, Rob Friedman, co-chairman of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, dropped a bit of news regarding the Stuart Beattie directed I, Frankenstein. It looks like Lionsgate plans on post-converting the film for a 3-D release on September 13. Because you know… that’s what everyone was hoping they would do.

According to THR, during an analyst call Tuesday, Friedman stated, “We’re selective. We do it where we think it’s appropriate for the creative, as well as for the consumer enjoyment.”

Post-conversion 3-D almost always blows, so it’s really interesting that Lionsgate opted to go this route for the film. It wouldn’t surprise me if the huge success of Texas Chainsaw 3D played a major role in this decision. At any rate, expect to see Aaron Eckhart who stars alongside Yvonne Strahovski, Bill Nighy and Socratis Otto all in three dimensions. I, Frankenstein, written and directed by Stuart Beattie, is based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux who is also the co-creator of the Underworld franchise. Lionsgate will distribute the film in the U.S. with Lakeshore doing all the international sales.

  1. Pointless news for a movie we shouldn’t even care about yet. Why does the studio announce crap like this and not give us AT LEAST an official image from the film, or a teaser, or something. Who cares if its in 3D. Just show us shit already.

    1. Yea, especially with how just about everyone hates post-converted 3-D films. Its like he’s setting it up for failure which I hope isnt the case because this one sounds pretty cool and I’m a huge fan of Eckhart.

      1. I love Eckhart as well but a studio needs to get me more excited about a film before they throw nonsensical shit at me like this. In my opinion, it’s already D.O.A (no pun intended).

  2. If I ever hear the words “This summer, witness The Godfather as you have never witnessed it before: in 3-D and Imax 3-D and Real 3-D” I swear I will never watch another movie as long as I live. Well, unless it has Emma Stone in it. A man has to maintain his unhealthy and immoral crushes on a girl old enough to be his daughter. Cuh-reeeeeeeeppppppyy!!!!

  3. Until they stop dicking around with crappy 3D technology which requires the watcher to wear glasses (which suck if you already wear glasses, or if you’re a cyclops-true story, I know a guy with one eye, he can’t watch 3D movies) and start working on real innovation in this field, I think it’s a waste of time and money to go to 3D movies regardless of whether it was made specifically for 3D or not. (I’m on kind of a negative vibe today, maybe I should stop commenting… =P)

    1. Haha, comments whether negative or positive are always welcome! I’d have to agree with you here though. 3D is done just for the money, they could care less what kind of experience people get out of it. I’ve only enjoyed a couple of movies in 3D and thats about it.

  4. Better post-converted than no 3D at all. 3D is a big change in movies, it’s like when movies got colo(u)r, and i don’t watch much black&white movie anymore. Of course there always be those conservative people who will try to hang on to an outdated medium, alive in the superunknown…
