    “There and Back Again” actually comes out in Summer of 2014, right alongside “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the latter of which, if Ian McKellen is to be believed, may shoot in HFR 3D!

      Release date has been fixed…thanks for the heads up. Hopefully X-Men will indeed shoot in HFR 3D. I expect a number of announcements in the coming months (Avengers 2? Star Wars Episode 7?), especially if the HFR 3D numbers for ‘An Unexpected Journey’ are good.

    I wish I could see a list like this for previous advancements in movie tech… upcoming movies with voices, color, shot on digital cameras, etc. It would interesting to read the “blogs” of those days to see people’s reaction to each new jump.
