    Where is GOTG Vol2 3D?

    Vol1 came in a bundle. Any reason why Vol2 would not be available tomorrow with the early 2D release? 3D Bluray will be released 8/22. Vudu let me know if a Bundle will be available tomorrow.

    Looks like we aren't going to get it, which sucks because this is the first Marvel 3D movie that Vudu doesn't have. I saw this twice in the theaters once in 2D and again in 3D. I refuse to watch it an other way than 3D. It is the superior version of the move. Unless Vudu adds it later today or when the disc comes out, they won't be getting my money for this title.

      At the moment GOTG2 in 3D appears to be an exclusive to Best Buy in their UHD/3D Steelbook combo.

        That's a disc exclusive. Rogue One was only available on 3D bluray through Target and Best Buy, and Vudu was still able to get the 3D digital version.

          Exactly GOTG2 3D appears 3D is only available on disc and only at Best Buy. No streaming 3D at the moment.

          Disney is doing weird things with 3D though. Moana was 3D on Vudu and Best Buy and no where else. Not even direct through my Distributor account. Was told Disney canceled the general 3D disc and instead only offered direct with Best Buy. Now months later I can get it at wholesale and I see Amazon put it up as well this week as available direct from them where before it was just 3rd parties reselling the best buy copies. Likewise releasing Star Wars 3D disc well after regular BD release. And plenty of 3D titles only released in Europe / Asia but not US (Frozen, Walle, Ratatouille come to mind)

            Just did a search for this on the main Vudu page and it shows up as available to rent on Tuesday. I really hope that there will also be an option to purchase but, like I just said, the only option listed so far is to rent. It really will be disappointing if this is the first 3D Marvel title that I can't own on Vudu.

              Re: Where is GOTG Vol2 3D?

              Well, I have made peace with studios offering less 3D Blu-Ray content because I know enough about how the home video market operates to see the writing on the wall. But as an enthusiast and suppporter of home 3D, it baffles me that studios don't offer the option via streaming. Vudu HDX is not a physical, high-bitrate encode, such as a Blu-ray 3D mastered disc, but with less and less movies even bothering with physical 3D to detour resources to 4K and high color sampling transfers/releases, it is most certainly an acceptable consoloation given the quality of HDX streams, both 2D and 3D. I know there are considerations about cost/demand over physical releases, market viability, risk/reward, etc... but for even titles that have been exhibited in 3D via theaters, I don't see the problem releasing a 3D encode for streaming. Hosting and distribution can't be more than manufacturing, distribution, and loss due to unsold product. I cannot fathom an argument against at-least offering a streaming 3D encode that doesn't involve petty licensing agreements and short-sighted market speculation.

              I just bought Wonder Woman HDX 2D/3D, knowing full well my physical purchase will probably lean toward the UHD release for detail and color sampling, why can I not do the same for Guardians Vol 2, objectively!? I love 3D, but I know the MAJORITY of viewers are frustrated with the cheap fashion studios and home electronics manufacturers have used 3D as an excuse to develop "premium market pricing", and outside of enthusiasts, UHD is a far more reasonable general-audience market for home media and manufacturing. But considering the dearth of 3D capable BR players and media boxes, the existing presence of 3D capable displays in homes, and people that realize 3D isn't such a bugbear when they can control the method of delivery in the comfort of their own homes, why does 3D UV and online streaming solutions seem to get tossed out with the aborted-before-disaster home 3D physical market!? I'll gladly pay a convenience charge to enjoy movies in a way I prefer, knowing full well this isn't the general preference or demand.
