Astro Boy (2009)
3D POTENTIAL: A CGI adaptation of a cartoon where a boy gets reincarnated as a robot and has the ability to fly around and sprout machine guns out of his buttocks. Blame Tezuka himself for that.

Inception (2010)
3D POTENTIAL: A film about invading dreams.

REASON FOR NOT BEING IN 3D: Although Warner Bros. wants Inception to be released on Blu-Ray 3D and The Dark Knight Rises filmed in 3D, Christopher Nolan does not want to be involved.

3D POTENTIAL: Lots of wizardry.

REASON FOR NOT BEING IN 3D: Warner Bros. failed to convert Part 1 into 3D on time, and felt bad about running out of time. Quit whining, WB. Forced 3D isn't THAT fun.

Rango (2011)
3D POTENTIAL: Another CGI film, which is incredibly realistic in detail and has plenty of action scenes, including roadrunner rides and an entertaining Apocalypse Now parody.

REASON FOR NOT BEING IN 3D: The film wasn't made in 3D, so Gore Verbinski refused to convert it because conversion is pointless and he didn't feel there was a dimension missing.

Sucker Punch (2011)
3D POTENTIAL: Girls having fantasies about battling dragons and giant robots.

REASON FOR NOT BEING IN 3D: Zack Snyder only wanted to use 3D for Legend of the Guardians. He didn't want to do post-conversion for this film.

Hop (2011)
3D POTENTIAL: Made in the style of live-action adaptations of Yogi Bear, The Smurfs and Alvin and the Chipmunks (#3 only). Also from the writers and producer of Despicable Me, a (better) 3D film and contains an epic battle between bunnies and chicks.

REASON FOR NOT BEING IN 3D: Tim Hill says:
"When you look at the movie, I’m not sure what 3D would bring to it. It’s not an action movie. There are very few sets. You could make a case for maybe getting a little more out of the Easter Island factory in 3D. But, in general, the question I kept asking was, “Why? What makes a film better by making it in 3D?” It’s probably past the point where you can just use 3D as a marketing tool. If you say, “It’s in 3D!,” everyone goes, “So what? We’ve seen it.”

The motivation to do it really wasn’t there, for both the content of the film and the style of shooting we were using, which was situational. It didn’t really lend itself to the visual part of 3D that makes 3D really exciting. You plan for it and you use the space differently. This is more of an intimate comedy. It’s almost a buddy comedy. You wouldn’t shoot that in 3D."

3D POTENTIAL: The third word in the title.

REASON FOR NOT BEING IN 3D: Jon Favreau stated that "Westerns should only be shot on film," even if Comin' At Ya exists. "That would be like filming in black and white and colorizing it"

Effects-laden films that looked like they could've been released in eye-straining 3D, but weren't. Which is a good thing.

Very nice list. I think way too many movies are shown in 3D, most of which are converted from 2D instead of being shot in 3D. For me it isn't worth paying extra money to see the same movie. Of course there are exceptions. Avatar is one of the few movies that I was willing to pay more to see in 3D.
