Some of the Ravel Abilities include a giant yarn ball used to attack enemies, a wire sword that can slice through anything and the Nylon ability, which can generate wind for jumping higher and collecting beads.

Fred Dekker previously stated the movie will be in 3D on a post via Facebook on March 20th 2018.

Fred Dekker is the writer of the movie . This information has been confirmed by the official movie website.

 

August 17th our own Editor-In-Chief Adolph Vega asked Fred via Facebook if the 3D was still happening  . 

FullSizeRender.jpg

“ I was looking forward to the 3D version, too— but we may have done too much 11th Hour tinkering to make it possible. ☹️ ”

-Fred Dekker via Facebook 

FullSizeRender.jpg

3dor2d Facebook page asked if this is also the case world wide since the UK 🇬🇧 Trailer still mentions 3D. Sadly at this time of publication we haven’t received any confirmation . The UK Predator 2018 trailer (which mentions 3D at the end) is below :

 

The film has had several reshoots and has been delayed already . So it makes sense that the 3D was cut from the movie .

 

The 2018 Predator movie is scheduled to release September 14th in 2D Only.

Cinemark theaters renew 3D agreement with Real D until 2022

Cinemark theaters renew 3D agreement with Real D until 2022

IMG_2168.JPG

“ Cinemark has renewed its 3D agreement with RealD across its global platform through December 2022.

The national theater chain also plans to install RealD 3D systems in new cinemas during the term of the extension, Cinemark CEO Mark Zoradi and RealD COO Travis Reid announced on Tuesday.

“Cinemark is thrilled to extend our strategic partnership with RealD,” Zoradi said in a statement. “We continue to believe the visual effects of 3D can enhance the on-screen action and further immerse movie-goers into the developing storyline of the film. RealD’s technology is first-rate and we value the collaboration with them over the years to ensure Cinemark is among the best and the brightest 3D technology in the industry.”

IMG_2166.JPG

Reid added, “Cinemark was an early advocate of RealD; their loyalty and commitment has never wavered as they recognized the excitement and added value 3D brings to their theatres. Their long-standing relationship with us is predicated on the highest level of customer satisfaction and demand in their RealD equipped locations. We are extremely pleased to continue collaborating with the Cinemark team as they consistently seek dynamic ways to move the business forward and enhance the overall movie-going experience.”

Box office revenues for 3D films dropped to a record low in 2017, falling 18% to $1.3 billion. That decline was tied to a larger drop in the domestic box office. Overall, North American revenues fell roughly 2% in 2017 to $11.1 billion.” - Variety

Now You’re Playing with Super Power! Nintendo Announces Super NES Classic Edition

Mini 16-Bit System Launches Sept. 29 with 21 Games; Includes Unreleased Star Fox 2

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, launched in 1991 and introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time – classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO.

On Sept. 29, this beloved console is coming back to stores in the form of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition. The mini system, which contains 21 pre-installed classic games and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. And for the first time, players who pick up the system can enjoy the intergalactic adventure Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox game that was created during the Super NES era but never released … anywhere!

“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition has the same look and feel of the original system – only smaller – and comes pre-loaded with 21 incredible games:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X®
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting®
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Yoshi’s Island

All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game will offer them something entirely new to enjoy – if they can unlock it by proving their skills in the original Star Fox game. (Well, they only have to complete the first level – we didn’t want to make it too hard!)

Included with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition are one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, perfect for playing multiplayer games. Having two controllers will make it easy for two players to dive into multiplayer action right away. Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition launches on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of $79.99.
