"Monster Trucks" Gets Home Media Annoucement Without 3D Version

"Monster Trucks" has been dated and detailed for BluRay and UltraHD BluRay.  What is missing, obviously, is a BluRay 3D release.  No reason was given why, though I suspect this is a movie Paramount Pictures would love to just have off their hands in the first place.  With a $125 million dollar price tag, the studio took a write-down on the thing before it even hit theaters.  It did better at the box office than anyone suspected, but it still lost a ton of money.  For me it's an early contender for the worst film of the year.  I did see the movie in 3D and this is one of the rare times you truly won't be missing anything if you see it in 2D.  The 3D was just tacked on (as Paramount is known to do sometimes), and most of the time the effects were negligible at best.  Also, you wouldn't be missing much if you skipped the film altogether.  So, in the end, I'm not sure if this is a loss or not.  Even if 3D TV's were still coming out this year I don't think it would be worth Paramount's time to release the movie in 3D.  Of course, if they did combo packs properly in the first place, this wouldn't be an issue at all.
