The 3D Bubble, Is 3D Going To Go Out Of Fashion [Infographic]

Most of you know that when I review a film I usually opt for the 3D version of the release and this is usually down to the fact that if I didn’t, then I would be asked about the 3D version of a film.

So while I was pondering around on the internet the other day, looking at the idea of 3D and if it will stay with us for very much longer or if is another one of those “gimmicks” that Hollywood has brought out in a hope that they can make more money.

With a lot of films now being converted from 2D to 3D and the majority of films being released in the 3D format, the question does arise of “How much longer will 3D films be around for?”.

There are those arguments that it’s going to phase out eventually and Hollywood will come up with something else for use to go “wow” at, until that becomes the norm as well. The problem with 3D, is that now that it’s been around for a while, we’ve got used to it and it takes a lot for an audience to be excited about a film in 3D.

The 3D Bubble

So, as I was saying earlier, I was surfing the net and I came across this Infographic about 3D and thought you would all like to check it out, I think it’s a good one that really brings to light that 3D may or may not have had its time in our cinemas.

But, then again, 3D has made it into our homes as well, with 3D TVs dramatically falling in price as they become a standard for home entertainment when attached to a Blu-Ray player.

So what do you think? Has the format seen the end of its journey? Or Is it here to stay!

    I’m not aware of 3D films in our part of world, but a 3D movie is about to release there shortly and I will be watching that to get the idea.


    • Do remember to stop back and let me know your thoughts on 3D after you’ve seen it 😉

  • The one area of 3D that I think will take off is 3D printing. There are new develops in this technology everyday from making 3D body parts to cars. It will be interesting to see all the applications of 3D printing in the future.

    • Nice point Laura-Lee, although the infographic is about 3D in Film, Games and TV!

  • Couldn’t resist!! 3D in terms of games I think will take off as the trend towards augmented reality continues.
