After Marvel’s announcement: Should I watch Doctor Strange 2 in 3D? – Movie News

In recent years, 3D has again been ignored by many moviegoers. But according to Marvel 3D, “Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness” should definitely be worth it. Is it correct?

After the mega success of “Avatar”, it was clear: the big blockbusters must be in 3D. Thanks to the surcharge, this of course brought in more money, but ideally it could also be used to increase the show. But in the end, he fell asleep again. Yes, some big movies continue to go to 3D and some fans attend those screenings as well. But it’s mostly just an accessory. Almost exclusively animated movies are still produced in 3D, which happens with a real movie like Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” is the absolute exception.

And when Marvel films such as “Black Widow”, “Eternals” or “Spider-Man: No Way Home” are subsequently converted to 3D, this is usually not based on a cinematic vision, but only serves to increase income. “Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness” was only later converted to 3D, but according to Marvel, the 3D was ultimately redesigned from the start.

Marvel: The Adventures of Doctor Strange are our best 3D movies

MCU mastermind Kevin Feige explained that director Sam Raimi not only made sure the movie was enjoyed on the biggest screen possible, but “for the first time in a long time, we really thought about 3D”.

According to Feige, this is also due to the 3D success of the predecessor “Doctor Strange”: “I think the first Doctor Strange movie is our best 3D movie and this one will be right next to it..

Sam Raimi can do 3D – but it’s still not a must

Marvel also took advantage of the fact that in Sam Raimi, a director who loves and lives 3D took over. His previous theatrical film, Oz, never quite got the attention it deserved, but it’s a 3D visual feast for the eyes. At the time, Raimi filmed the work directly in 3D.

With “Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness”, we already feel that we have thought about 3D. The opening action scene, in which America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) are chased by a monster in a mysterious dimension, is extremely flat without 3D and just doesn’t look good. . This scene really benefits from 3D – and that’s a downside when viewing it in classic 2D.

You also notice that 3D is used more often and plays a bigger role than recently, for example in “Spider-Man: No Coming Home“. After all, the new multiverse show also has moments with its monsters or the short journey through countless variations of our world that lend themselves to it. but it’s never really that 3D blows your mind that you absolutely need it or think: here comes the next level of evolution in 3D technology!

An advantage of 3D: “Avatar 2”!

In our opinion, a 3D projection is therefore not absolutely necessary, but if you have the opportunity, go for it – especially if it is an IMAX roombecause the film definitely benefits from a giant screen and exceptional sound.

An added bonus is that the first trailer for “Avatar 2” should almost always be shown in 3D screenings – and in 3D too! We have already experienced ourselves that it is not always shown before 2D screenings and if it is then of course only in 2D. However, James Cameron’s latest film promises to be a feast for the eyes again and could spark some – at least a very small – new 3D hype.

By the way, there’s more on the trailer in the current edition of our podcast, which mostly talks about “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” speak.
