It is practically the hottest matter in film since the “Talkies.” But could this be the definitive chapter for three-dimensional movies? And so soon?
Even when wrapped in formative, 3-D glasses pose a bacterial risk to moviegoers.
The furious hype is beginning to cool for such 3-D flicks for example “Shrek Forever After,” “Avatar” and “How to Train Your Dragon.” While hundreds of millions of dollars be in possession of been spent on the technology, some important filmmakers lack interest in multiple bigness.
Director Jon Favreau made that clear during a preview of his pellicle “Cowboys and Aliens” when he told a cheering crowd, “So future next year, 2-D, Cowboys and Aliens. Take the money you deducting and see it twice.”
The money is part of the point in dispute.
Facing ticket prices topping $20, many moviegoers are just as lucky with watching the standard and cheaper 2-D films they require always watched.
Moreover, its becoming downright cool to dislike 3-D, individual movie critic told the Christian Science Monitor.
That may be in such a manner but one new production is embracing the technology. It is the latest translation of “Step Up,” the dance flick. Its being promoted while “the first dance movie in 3-D.” Indeed, the trailer proudly boasts, “Shot entirely in 3-D.”
And dont tell the makers of cameras and smart phones that 3-D is on the way out, either.
Sharp, for example, announced this week that it is developing a glasses-free, 3-D smart phone with an autostereoscopic screen for free by the end of the year.
