Rumor: Dr. No coming to IMAX 3D

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to re-release

Through a convoluted series of events it appears that James Bond's first on screen adventure, Dr. No, will be receiving a 3D IMAX re-release. Blooding Cool was first hinted to the possibility when the Taiwanese Blu-Ray re-release of the film came with a 3D conversion packed in. They then found Moviefone has an actual listing for the film. All signs point to this being a thing that is happening.

Of course it's all speculation now, but one can see why it would happen. We're still technically in the throws of Bond's 50th anniversary, and Skyfall absolutely destroyed the box office meaning Bond is at an all time high (snicker). It just makes sense to make more money off it.

I recently had the chance to check out some Bond films on the big screen, and it was amazing. The movies were meant for viewing in a huge screen and it brings a whole new level to films I'd only seen on televisions. I'm not so sure about the 3D being crammed in there, but any Bond is still good Bond. Hopefully this signals a re-release of all the films. And hopefully it doesn't stop like Star Wars
