And in thinking about whether to see a movie in 3D or not, there are a variety of factors to consider. Perhaps the most obvious one is if the movie was filmed using a 3D camera. In this case, the answer is no, but that doesn't mean that Avengers: Infinity War shouldn't be seen in 3D. After all, it's already made history as "the first mainstream movie shot entirely on IMAX cameras," according to DigitalTrends.com, so further investigation into this question is definitely needed.

"Be it the rapid paced action, or even the dimness of the film's picture, there are moments in the first two acts of the film that wonk out in the 3D realm," the site reports. Basically, it's an action movie and action movies can be dizzying when seen in a regular theater, so if you think you might get nauseous or you have in other 3D movies, just see it in standard definition.
But then there's still one more thing to think about if you're planning to see Avengers: Infinity War and want to know if 3D is a good choice: was it meant to be seen in 3D? While it wasn't filmed using a 3D camera, the movie definitely has plenty of merits behind seeing it in 3D.

But, if you have motion sickness issues or eye problems, it might be best to stick it out in the standard movie theater. Either way, though, you're definitely in for a treat.
