Remastered Avatar proved that theaters have been silently getting ready for Avatar 2 and a new generation of 3D

With the release of a remastered version of the original Avatar in 3D at theaters two months ago, people discovered that a lot of theaters actually had 3D on screens that previously never projected any 3D movie.

Not only that, most of them were using HFR 3D capable projectors, giving a much smoother experience. HFR 3D cinemas were very difficult to find in any country. It was available only on some premium cinemas that you usually only find on the most famous cities. HFR projectors are important because they enable the use of TrueCut Motion technique, which solves the increasing problems of today’s fast-paced action scenes from most movies.

People were surprised to find HFR 3D sessions even at small cinemas, not only on the main screen of the location, but also on other secondary screens.

Even in villages, cinemas that had never before shown a 3D movie have sprung up using the latest 3D technology.

Avatar The Way of Water will use TrueCut Motion HFR, which allows increasing the frames per second but only when needed, mainly on action scenes, so spectators will avoid the blurry action scenes which is a common problem of action movies (not only in 3D, problem is worse in 2d). This allows a new generation of 3D that makes the images even more realist and increased “feel there” sensation.

Looking at the amount of theaters that secretly adapted to this new filmmaking technique, it is clear that the most of the world is already ready for a new generation of 3D. More than never, there’s no excuse to not go to the cinema to enjoy and support 3D.

  1. It turns out that in an interview, James Cameron gave an explanation for being so many 3D cinemas:
    Well, the simple fact is, it is. Most of the big Marvel movies are offered in 3D, and I think it’s sobering to remember that when Avatar was released, there were 3,000 digital 3D screens in North America and about 6,000 worldwide. Today, there are 120,000 digital 3D screens worldwide. So that’s enormous growth in the platform and the infrastructure, and the thing that worked so well was that we got Texas Instruments to build into their chip set and into their server architecture the ability to do high frame rate and 3D. That was a baseline, and every projector that’s come out across all the different manufacturers has been 3D-enabled since then.
    Effectively, this means that any cinema that has upgraded its projector in the last 10 years can project the film in both 3D and HFR.
