The concert film will feature footage by AEG Live and Action 3D that was shot during all eight sets of Festival 8 in Indio. Beggars can't be choosers, but I'm really hoping the pyro-infused Mike's Song didn't end up on the cutting room floor as I'd certainly love to see that in 3D.
Very cool technology… Ridic.
Dave O, Hidden Track
According to Consequence of Sound, the band will begin to tease Phish 3D: The Movie with a 15-second trailer at Alice in Wonderland 3D screenings this weekend. Expect a longer trailer to be released next month.

Update: Phish 3D Bloomberg Release (March 6, 2010 @ 12:01 am CT)
Per this Bloomberg release there were 3,659 screens in the U.S. and Canada equipped with 3-D projectors as of Jan. 5 and Phish / Action 3D / AEG Live will be using technology from Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. to digitally transmit and project the movie.
Update: Under-the-Hood of the Official Site(March 6, 2010 @ 10:35 am CT)
The source code of the phish3dmovie website leads me to believe it was developed in partnership with the aforementioned Cinedigm (which is a tad curious) by a group called New Reach Consulting who appear to have a pretty solid music industry background.
Update: 3/9/2010 The artifacts mentioned above have been removed from the site.
Update: Theater Locator (March 6, 2010 @ 8:30 pm CT)
Assuming this is showing at the same spots as the DMB 3D movie, here's a theater locator so you can see if it'll be anywhere near you. The closest theatre for me is just 3.4 miles away. Fine.
Update April 13, 2009: Here's the official Phish 3D Theatre Locator.
Update: Red / Blue 3D Image by Darren Cokin (March 8, 2010 @ 12:50 pm CT)

Update: Phish 3D Announced on Phish.com (March 9, 2010 @ 3:00 pm CT)

Is it April yet?
Update: Phish 3D in Theatres April 30th, Preview on April 20th (March 25, 2010 @ 10:00 am CT)
Mark your calendars: Phish 3D is opening nationwide on Friday, April 30th for an exclusive (and very short) one week run.
Fan favorites, never before seen cover songs, and intimate footage of the band backstage and in rehearsals.
Be sure hit the bathroom and stock up on popcorn before it starts because the movie is just over two hours long and if the trailer is any indication you won't want to miss any of it.
