Why The Dark Knight Rises Will Not Be In 3D

Personally we are very glad that Christopher Nolan will not be filming the conclusion of his Batman Trilogy in 3D and he spoke with The La Times about this after announcing the title of the third film, The Dark Knight Rises.
     "The title of the new film is 'The Dark Knight Rises' and we will be shooting and exhibiting the film in 2-D. We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films. There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to 'The Dark Knight' and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel."
      "Stereoscopic presentation would have significantly changed the feel of certain 'Dark Knight' scenes, such as rooftop and aerial shots in Hong Kong that created vast and startling night vistas. There’s an intimacy at times with spatial illusion of the 3-D effect and we didn’t want to lose scale." 

     "Our ambition for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over, this not rebooting. We’re finishing something, and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value. We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before. Our ambitions are to make a great movie." 

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 20, 2012!
