Hi, I live in Manchester and for some reason I can't find Prometheus 2d anywhere but they are releasing Prometheus 3d IMAX - I can't see 3d so what are they playing at? Anyone know?

Mmm... Just checked out Cineworld Didsbury and Showcase Belle Vue websites, I see what you mean. It's 3D or no D at the moment. I hadn't really budgeted for the extra £'s to watch the 3D version. If it's not released in 2D at the same time then I may have to use the hotdog fund to fork out on the 3D film and starve (unless I can sneak in a pack of Tesco maltesers ;) )

In my country it wont even be released in standard 2D, its 3D or nothing!

Not that I personally object to that though. Will be interesting to see how this dark film works in 3D.

Got 6 tickets for the premiere midnight showing. Good times await......

it's ok for some but I have 40% vision in one eye so can't actually see 3D as its physically impossible.

Hope Big Boss is right but can't pre book :-(
 
With the hype they've created, it's likely the 3D IMAX version that will go to packed houses, due to paucity of screens. Has your local Odeon / Cineworld started advanced booking yet? Most likely not. IMAX movie advance booking can start months in advance. Don't worry, have patience. :)

That's not strictly accurate though is it, you could go, put the glasses on and see the film. You wouldn't get the 3D *effect*, granted but you WOULD see the film.

It would be a bit pointless though, and a waste of the extra couple of quid they charge (my sister's local wanted over ten quid to see Avengers in 3D! Seriously? It's only £7 at my local...), true enough but to say you couldn't see it isn't quite accurate, at least not accurate enough for my brain to take lying down at this hour of the morning...

Apologies because I can't help with a solution for Manchester but for those lucky enough to live near a Picturehouse Cinema they should fnd the 2D version.

I'll be checking out the 2D version but agree that if I can get to a screen I'd also like to see the IMAX 3D version.

I don't think that's correct, when I attempt to watch a 3D film the picture is not like watching the 2D version??

the old 3d glasses had two different coloured lenses so when I attempted to see 3D the image was distorted as you could only see one layer on another. Are you saying these new glasses will allow you to see 2d? surely the image will be distorted :)

The glasses are designed to allow only one of the two images to either eye, that's how 3d works, so if you effectively only have one eye working you should just see the image for that eye. There might be a little crosstalk, depends how good the equipment is but everyone has to put up with that and it'll be darker than 2d, so it still probably isn't worth the effort. I don't know though, I've never tried closing one eye whilst watching a 3d film. Both eyes, yes...
