Peter Jackson3D movies are here to stay, at least until audiences grow tired of paying a premium to wear glasses in the dark. Does that mean everyone loves 3D, including the filmmakers themselves? Not necessarily. Christopher Nolan, for one, has expressed his reservations, and so 'The Dark Knight Rises' will not be in 3D. But he's in the minority, with everyone from Steven Spielberg to Martin Scorsese to Peter Jackson praising the possibilities of 3D. Last year, Jackson talked about his desire to convert the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy into 3D and said that he wanted both installments of 'The Hobbit' to be in 3D.

With Jackson back in the director's chair after Guillermo Del Toro's departure, it's no surprise to hear an official announcement that 'The Hobbit' will, in fact, be released in 3D. Word comes via Engadget (and a press release) that Jackson will be using 30 RED EPIC cameras to recreate Middle Earth in three dimensions for the big screen. Is that a good or bad choice?
