Over the last few months, the promotional material for Fox's upcoming Fantastic Four film lost something… any mention of the film being released in 3D. Well, the folks at Final Reel found out that the 3D release has indeed been cancelled. The response from Fox included a quote from the director Josh Trank.
I want the viewing experience of Fantastic Four to remain as pure as possible for the audience, which means in 2D, just as we shot the movie.
Rumors started a few weeks back that the film went extremely over-budget due to re-shoots which has been denied by Trank. The canceling of the 3D release may refuel that speculation.
Fantastic Four opens on August 7th.
