3-D Movies on the Collection Development Horizon?

Another format to consider
further on down the road?

Link to September 16 AP story in the San Jose Mercury News, "Slew of 3-D TV movies for the home? Not so fast".

Excerpt: Although buyers of 3-D TVs can appreciate that bundled movies will allow them to try out their new TV immediately, a lack of broadly available titles could hinder the adoption of 3-D watching in the home, said Helen Davis Jayalath, an analyst with Screen Digest

"The exclusive bundling deals can't go on for too long, or it's going to be a problem," Davis Jayalath said after her presentation. "Hopefully these licensing deals will expire soon." 

Jeffrey Katzenberg, the chief executive of DreamWorks Animation SKG, said it will take another year or two before enough homes have 3-D TV sets for it to make sense to release 3-D Blu-ray movies without such bundles.
