What's the story behind this? Some huge inside joke? A meme taken on a life of it's own?
BiggerJ The IMAX version is another film based on the original novel. It will be the fifth adaptation (that I know of).
BiggerJ Wait, never mind, it's a 3D (pfffhahaha) IMAX version of the half-hour all-star-cast film, originally released in the same year as this one.
They should just not bother to 3D-ify the 2D sequences. Return to the days of 'put on your 3D glasses now'. Maybe even have pointless clear or lensless 2D glasses for people to wear during the 2D sequences.
