When we first embarked on this three-dimensional odyssey back in January, the one image stuck in our collective head was that classic shot of a '50s theater audience bedecked in 3D glasses (see here). So when it came time to preview early cuts of the flick in August for unbiased eyes, Jeff Tremaine made a special request of Paramount to have all the screener 3D glasses made out of white cardstock to replicate that specific "vintage" look (not to mention the fact they look distinctly more "3D" in the audience reaction shots than say a crowd wearing the standard issue Roy Orbisons).
At the BFI IMAX premiere in London, England though, we were given these super-large 3D glasses to facilitate the super-large viewing experience. They looked goofy as all hell (as can be witnessed by the spacey, bug-eyed audience), but I'll be damned if these weren't the best dimensional specs I've worn to date—and I've test-driven quite an assortment the past three months. I really don't have anything else to say on this dimensional subject, relevant and/or otherwise, but if you think the quality of the shot above is shite then perhaps you'd be interested to see how the original below looked and how far it came back from the underexposed grave:
Verily, I say unto thee, I have looked upon the face of God and His name is Digital.
