If 2012 has demonstrated anything so far it’s (arguably) that IMAX trumps 3D. IMAX 3D versions of such summer blockbusters as The Avengers and Men in Black III generated more goodwill than regular 3D versions, while Amazing Spider-Man (native 3D) and Dark Knight Rises (native IMAX) likewise earned kudos for their IMAX presentations. By comparison, post-conversion 3D jobs on old(er) effects extravaganzas like The Phantom Menace and Titanic yielded mixed responses.

Keeping tabs on release dates is one of the more tedious (but necessary) tasks called for in the movie news biz. Today, we have word that Universal is reshuffling dates for upcoming titles like 47 Ronin and Jurassic Park 3D, while setting official launch times for the comic book movies Kick-Ass 2 and 2 Guns.
Universal had already bumped 47 Ronin back from a November 2012 date to February 2013, prompting speculation that the 3D Samurai epic (starring Keanu Reeves as a “half-breed” Japanese warrior) is in trouble. Commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch is making his feature-length directorial debut with the film, and encountering all the obstacles one would expect when tackling a technologically-challenging adaptation of a cultural touchstone in the Japanese storytelling tradition.
Deadline says that reshoots and visual ...
