The Ring to Get 3D Sequel

image

The grand-daddy of Japanese horror movie remakes is returning to theaters, this time in 3D.

Way back in 2002, The Ring was doing a pretty good job of scaring the bejeezus out of cinema-goers, and made enough money to warrant a sequel - titled The Ring Two - in 2005. But critics slated the movie, it all went quiet on The Ring front.

That is until now, with the announcement that a third Ring movie is to be made, titled Ring 3D. Hideo Nakata, director of the first two Japanese Ring movies as well as the American made sequel is said to be directing, but nothing is confirmed in terms of cast or plot just yet, except a rumor that the movie will be more teen-centric than the previous outings.

I must admit to being in two minds about this. A teen-centric, 3D horror movie seems like a pretty big departure for the series, but on the other hand, one of the creepiest images from the first movie was the sight of the utterly drenched Samara crawling out of the TV, and that could look awesome in 3D.

What is it with all this 3D...the new big thing...shame I can never partake due to my eyes...

Oh God 3D!

Now it's so much better!

Now you can get eye strain, along with your pointless crappy cash in!

I thought 3D died out years ago.
I always lose those glasses...

Why? I mean, it's not like the first two films were actually, you know good. And the last one wasn't profitable... why inflict this upon us?

Please... Not the ring... It was fine how it was... Leave it alone!

Calumon: Ring a Ring Roses! A pocket full of... Jack, your nursery rhymes are kinda depressing...

It could be a truly terrifying horror movie.

Or it could be completely generic and shit.

£5 on the latter.

You clearly haven't been to the movies recently. There has been like 8 movies at the theaters with 3D since Avatar. They aren't the red and blue glasses though, if those are what you're talking about.

OT: I really hope they don't call it The Ring 3D. That's like condemning it to mediocrity.

I WAS talking about the 3D glasses. And I forgot to finish my previous post with "Why is it getting popular again?"

But if it's a new type then I guess it could be good.

I'm really tired of the whole "3D" trend going on.

I just want to watch TV and movies like I always have. Without stupid glasses or eye-strain.

A 2D image on a screen, that's all I want.

As opposed to 3D as I am, I called this.

When Final Destination was just coming out in 3D, I entered a contest for tickets. The question was "What movie would you most like to see in 3D?"

I said The Ring because when Samara comes out of the TV, she'll be coming out at you!

Totally called it.

I'm a genius.

P.S. I also said Ghostbuster, because the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man is too epic for two demensions.

Because of an the coupling of an approximate $5 dollar increase on the ticket price over a regular 2D and the home retail market is only now breaking into offering 3D products means they can fill more seats at a higher cost, which equates to more profits.

I just hope it's actually filmed in 3D, instead of the crappy post-production kind that might be gathering in popularity.

Honestly, I think that if a 3D movie isn't made with the same technology used in Avatar there really isn't any point. I saw Clash of the Titans in 3D and it was so tacked on. I can't even imagine how crappy it would be if they just are using it for extra cash from teeny boppers.

New 3D is pretty cool. I was very skeptical, but now I like it. And it could work extraordinarily well in, "The Ring". Also, the guy who did the original made a damn fine movie: I didn't mind the second Ring, but it wasn't the same. Makes me think that this project is worth consideration. Now, my concerns are that it's being made teen-centric, and that it has "3D" in the title. That just makes it sound silly and gimmicky, and suspect that that will be something that they will have to fight in order to make a good movie. Im willing to watch it and see.

Also, hopefully, they will declare Ring 2 non-cannon, and follow a plot line closer to that of the original novels. Seriously, the original Samara character makes the Umbrella Corporation look like Team Rocket.

I'm sorry but that girl crawling out of the television set was nightmare fuel enough, I sure as hell don't wanna see it in 3D when she looks like she's crawling out of the cinema screen to come and get me. Hell no.

Meh, I actually quite like 3D if it's used well (Avatar and Coraline), but The Ring was one of the worst remakes I've ever seen (unlike The Grudge, which I controversially felt was better than the original). I never saw the sequel (not that Ring 2 was any good anyway, the book was sooo much better), but I can't imagine I missed much, so why make a third?

*Sigh* I can't wait for the 3D gimick to die on it's arse.

So...

They had better give Sadako a pair of testicles like in the series of books!

Although it really does sound like a cash in.

Sir Kemper:

My thoughts to the letter.

The Ring in 3D? Awesome! Because annoying visual tricks was the one thing missing from those movies. /sarcasm

Sometimes I don't understand why people even bother. Is it money? Inability to get over his own past works? One-trick pony? Anyway, I'm sure as hell not gonna watch it. So disappointed with modern horror movies in general.

Most movies that get the 3D treatment I agree are pretty much gimmicks to ring money out of the stupids. And for most of this movie that'd hold true too. But we all know the scene that would make the money for this movie, and I would almost say it's worth it.

.... I would be friggin scared shitless to see Sadako(?) going out the screen.

You completely lost all credibility with the human race the moment you said "Also, the guy who did the original made a damn fine movie"

Please.. don't ever post again.

Anyone who says ANYTHING positive about "The Ring" movies needs to just die in a fire, while suffering from a severe case of mouth herpes.

"Omg.. VCR Tapes have secret embedded codes that make them ultra cool!"
"dude.. you realize VHS went out like.. 20 years ago right?"
"..... my dad can beat up your dad!"

There was "The Ring" summed up nicely for those who HAVENT wasted that 90 minutes of their lives yet.

Great, now the movie can suck total ass in three dimensions instead of two. And at a mere twice the cost!

What a fantastic idea.
It will make millions.

"If we can't make it good, we'll make it in 3D!"

This 3D thing is crap.

3D will be the death of us all.

Every movie from now to eternity will be subjugated to it dictorial fist.

...I hate it.

I like how this explanation doesn't state any benefit to the customer, as AFAICS, there isn't one.

Read "Ringu" instead. It's much better.

If I see '3d' in the title of one more movie, I swear I'll cry.

I'm starting to feel this way. Half the time I don't see anything cool happen in 3D. Alice in Wonderland was a great example of nothing 3D occurring.

Trolls arn't very welcome at the escapist. Grow up.

I f$cking hate 3D now......

3D games maybe. But it's 3D sound I want !

I don't care, to be quite blunt.
Saying some shitty movie is now coming out IN 3D rings the same in my ears as those cheesy films from the 50's claiming to be the best sci-fi you'll ever see.

Which is to say, I ain't buying it.

Ugh... Why do they keep making this teenage character setting? I get the feeling that they prioritize actors that are cheap rather then people that would be suitable for the roles.

I have no idea of how some people can find it interesting when the main characters throw curse-words everywhere every five seconds. Of course just beacuse the actors are young doesn't mean that they'll be bad at it, but I would honestly not keep my hopes up considering all the movies I've seen that have taken such a direction...

Hmmm. I'm getting sick of this. I think 3D is getting to be some cool technology, and it works in some movies Like Alice In Wonderland, for example.
But I'm getting sick of every movie using it as a gimmick to draw in a few more people.
