Finding Nemo 3D in Theaters September 14th

Finding Nemo 3D in Theaters September 14th

This past weekend my daughter and I had the great pleasure of being invited to the Portland preview showing of Finding Nemo in 3D.   She was beyond excited, I am not sure if it was because she loves Nemo or if it was because I was taking her to see it at a theater.  It could have also been because I promised her popcorn for breakfast (it was an early movie).

We arrived early for special seating and patiently (as patiently as a 3 year old can wait sitting in a chair) waited the 30+ minuted for the movie to start.  I met my first in person blog friend, Krista from Mostly Mommyhood, and two of her children. 

As the lights dimmer, we donned our 3D glasses (hers were much cooler than mine!) and munched our popcorn in anticipation for the main feature.  We were treated to a spectacular Pixar short Partysaurus Rex, which will play before Finding Nemo 3D in theaters 

Here is a sneak peek video. Too funny!

Now I have seen Nemo a time or two (or a hundred, I lost count) but Nemo 3D is not to be missed.  I am not usually a huge fan of 3D movies, the 3Dglasses do not fit over my regular glasses very well and I can never get my daughter to keep hers on for more than a few minutes but WOW, Nemo 3D was awesome. 

 The images truly appear to be leaping (well swimming) off the screen at you, not in a way that will scare smaller children (a shark will not jump off the screen and eat you) but in a way that leaves you open mouthed in amazement at the brilliance of the difference between the original and the 3D version. Aside from the addition of 3D, enhancements have been made to the clarity and colors of the film, and let me say the colors are spectacular.  

Finding Nemo was originally released in 2003, so most people have seen it, but just in case you have been living in a coral reef for the past 9 years here is a summary

Academy Award®-winning film “Finding Nemo” returns to the big screen in thrilling Disney Digital 3Dfor the first time ever. Teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, this stunning underwater adventure follows the momentous journey of an overprotective clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his young son Nemo (voiced by Alexander Gould)––who become separated in the Great Barrier Reef when Nemo is unexpectedly taken far from his ocean home to a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.

“Finding Nemo” will be released in Digital 3D™ for a limited theatrical engagement on Sept. 14, 2012, and will be released for the first time ever in high-definition Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 3D™ on Dec. 4, 2012.
