Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim being post-converted to 3-D

Guillermo del Toro‘s upcoming sci-fi epic Pacific Rim will be post-converted to 3-D, despite the director previously suggesting it would not be a good fit.

Deadline suggests this is Warner Bros’ attempt to make the movie a ‘billion-dollar club’ contender, with the higher 3-D ticket prices certain to inflate grosses.

“I didn’t want to make the movie 3D because when you have things that big, the thing that happens naturally is you’re looking at two buildings at 300 feet… They’re so big that you barely notice anything no matter how fast you’re moving, so to force the 3D effect on robots and monsters that are supposed to be that high, you’re making them miniaturized, you’re making them human-scale.”

That’s Del Toro talking to Collider at Comic-Con back in July.

We remain excited for the flick in spite of this.

Pacific Rim stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, and Charlie Day. It hits cinemas July 11, 2013.
