3D Blu-ray Hobbit - Which type of 3D glasses will we need? Can't Post

What type of 3D glasses will the 3D Hobbit blu-ray require?

a) TV-specific - I've got a 3D Samsung TV and a 3D Samsung blu-ray player but have never watched any 3D content on either. The TV included some 3D glasses which need to be "synced" to the TV; I think they run off a small battery.

b) Real 3D - When I went to see the hobbit, the theatre sold me a second pair of 3D glasses. These have "Real 3D" written on them. I've tried using them to view some of the 3D samples online (the ones with visible red/blue images), but they don't work.

c) Red/Blue - Back in the 80s, I remember wearing cheap red/blue glasses. I don't have any of those. The online samples seem to be targeting those glasses, but without a pair, I'll never know.


So, which set of glasses will we need for viewing the Hobbit in 3D at home?

And, if the answer is "TV-specific", does this mean I need to buy a second pair of Samsung 3D glasses, or are there other brands/types of glasses that will work with my Samsung TV?

Thanks a bunch!
