Director Brad Bird snubbed the chance to film the new Mission: Impossible movie in 3D because he is "not exactly convinced" by the new technology.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol features the franchise's lead Tom Cruise in his most daring stunts yet, including scaling the world's tallest building in Dubai.
But rather than showcase the impressive action shots in 3D, Bird kept his filming to more traditional methods.
He tells Bbc's Newsbeat, "I think that any time you have a new toy, people feel excited about it and then they overuse it. I remain interested in 3D but I'm not exactly convinced yet. What I'm more interested in is really high resolution, and really big screens.
"For me I don't like the glasses so much, and it's a little dark. I think people are forgetting about the power of a really sharp bright image on a really big screen."
