In 3D (and 2D!)

Is it just me, or is the statement at the bottom right corner hilarious?

These days, everything is coming out in 3-D (and has a 2-D version to complement it). But to mention at the very bottom of your advertisement that it's also available in 2-D? 

That's like saying, "You must check out this amazing new enhanced technology! can see the old, unimpressive version too, if that's your thing." 

Maybe just stick with your marketing shtick and let people figure out the rest for themselves. 3-D is the THING these days, regardless that for most movies it's not significantly noticeable and I would be just as satisfied with their 2-D counterparts. However, if you NEED to do 3-D, just do it and don't give a lame shout out to the less dimensionally evolved movie from which your intensified version emerged.

And just for the record - I have no idea what this movie is about. It looks a little like Free Willy and I'm not particularly interested in seeing it anyway, so don't take this as an advertisement.  But it's in 3-D, so that's pretty cool, right?
