comment What is the shortest timespan depicted in a movie?
The Wikipedia article talks about 23 minutes, though.

"Harry Potter and the One with the Time Turner Stuff is another example of time being shorter than the movie (just as a reference)" - No, it isn't. The movie still shows a whole year of magical education, no matter if a single day of that was lived twice. Until I learn how long the interval in Elephant is, I'd still go with Lola rennt or the probably equal Vantage Point.

@Walt Though it's not that the other one didn't provide enough possibilities for discussing its premise either.

@Richard Still the movie didn't actually depict it, it seems.

@Walt Well, that's a reasonable answer then. You can't get too much longer, I think. It even ends with the biblical end of the world when Sean Penn meets his family in heaven, whenever that is, though.

Well, then I guess 2001 might be a start, from stone age to future in a single movie.

comment What is the longest timespan depicted in a movie?
This might possibly work better as two separate questions. Though, a signficant problem might be how to factor in flashbacks and stuff. Many movies include snippets of a much earlier time, even if not showing a long continuous timeline (e.g. The Fellowship of the Ring depicted at least 2500 years worth of timespan even if the "real" action didn't take more than a year).

comment Why wasn't Interstellar shot in 3D?
@NPSF3000 "so the only way for you to see it in 2D is to remove the choice from the majority?" - Huh? I didn't get that. I would prefer to have the option of watching some 3D stuff in 2D, but since that option is usually not available, I'll have to watch it in 3D. That's all I'm saying. But nevermind.

comment Why wasn't Interstellar shot in 3D?
@NPSF3000 Well, tell that to my cinema. I guess the influx from the crowd is still high enough. The average person will want to see the 3D version anyway. Those very few who would consider rather not watching anything at all (and I for myself would rather watch 3D than nothing) probably just don't make the difference. I'd personally doubt that "plenty" (but admittedly don't know either). The mass market is likely well-appealed by the whole 3D fuss.

comment Why wasn't Interstellar shot in 3D?
@NPSF3000 No, usually not. And why should they? If the projection technology is there, why use it to do a showing at reduced prices? They did offer 2D as alternative for 3D movies back when 3D was still on the rise, so not all rooms already had the necessary projection technology. But now that nearly all have, there is just no motivation to show anything in 2D when you could as well make 1.5x the income. It's not that the customers just won't watch it at all when they don't have the 2D alternative, and those who won't are more than enough balanced out by the higher income from the rest.
