Guillermo Del Toro is one of the few high-profile directors that has yet to make a 3D movie. That will change slightly now that Warner Bros. has "strong-armed" him into converting Pacific Rim into 3D.
Del Toro expressed his doubts about converting the film over to 3D earlier this year at Comic-Con, citing the enormous scope of the film.
The film centers around gigantic monsters known as kaiju who rise up and begin destroying the Pacific Rim region of the planet. Humans fight back, creating robotic suits known as Jaegers to take down the monsters.
The cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi and Ron Perlman.
Despite the conversion, the film will still release on July 12, 2013. Will you watch the film in regular 2D or spring for the extra 3D effects?

Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim
I'm not a huge fan of 3D filming, but 3D conversion is awful. I would much rather have films and theatres invest in HD quality screens
2D for me only.
3D Conversion is Crap. I'll definitely be seeing it in 2D. Converting it to 3D to try and get that extra 3$ from us is a bad call if the Director doesn't want it.
I'll only see it in 2D if i hear that the 3D sucks.
Ill see, I am a big fan of Del Toro's work so it might be good in 3d.
Thank god it doesn't change the original date. I would have had a problem if this 3D crap messed with it but since it's only extra I can't complain. What an embarrassing gimmick.
