Interesting to see this happening but honestly, I don't know that the movie would play better in 3D.

maybe this should be moved to general cinema, Ian.

What an odd choice for a 3D film.

Why is it an odd choice?

Bond films are the only films the Broccolis own.

Chances are they'll convert all of them if there's money to be squeezed out of them.

There's nothing about DR. NO that screams "3D!!!!" at me. I like Dr. No, I own it, but it doesn't really lend itself to a 3D transfer. I dunno, it might. It just doesn't sound like it. Then again, i'm not a big 3D guy.

What I meant is, it's no loonier than some of the other conversions out there.

Dr. No is a life-long favorite of mine. I love this film. I wish they'd leave it alone.

Dumb crap like TOP GUN getting 3D'd is bad enough but leave Bond alone.

Yeah, i think some of those are pretty odd as well. :-) I get that some movies are made for 3D and that they would want to utilize it as a selling gimmick...but to go back and "3D up" something that wasn't shot with 3D in mind...that doesn't present itself with a lot of opportunities for it...and which is a damn fine film in its own right (Dr. No) makes no sense to me.
