INDEPENDENCE DAY 3D Re-Release Postponed

If you were looking forward to seeing Will Smith kick ET’s butt again and this time in 3D, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. The 3D conversion of the 1996 alien invasion blockbuster Independence Day has been postponed from its July 3, 2013 to a date to be determined.

The special-effects fest from Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich was just one of a number of older films getting a 3D conversion for re-release.

There is no word yet from Twentieth Century Fox as to the reasons for the postponement, but it is possible that the conversion process is taking longer than anticipated and they would rather get it right then get it rushed.

In the meantime, Independence Day star Will Smith’s latest film, After Earth, opens on June 7 and director Roland Emmerich’s latest, White House Down, hits theaters a few weeks later on June 28th.
