3D Cinema

Apparently its going to be the next revolution in film-making, after sound, colour, and digital transfer, though actually 3D cinema has been around before them! Reading the latest issue of Total Film (Issue 155, June 2009), you will find a whole section on the topic, with some (free) 3D specs to pop on, while you look at some snapshots from past films, upcoming films, and images of porn! Yep, you didn’t read that wrong, there is one page dedicated to discussing how the porn industry is also embracing 3D, and has done so once or twice in the past.

But enough of that, you get the sense that 3D cinema is going to be the next big thing in the next few years, what with Up (the first 3D animated film to open the Cannes film festival i think you’ll find), Avatar, Alice In Wonderland (Due 2010, Tim Burton’s new adap looks very good from what i’ve seen and heard, especially since hearing that Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter, and Stephen Fry will be starring as the Cheshire Cat!), Ice Age 3, TinTin, Tron, and even a fourth Final Destination entitled Final Destination: Death Trip 3D, which, by judging what happened to My Bloody Valentine 3D, will disagree with the crtitics but agree with the box office takings.

Also did you know that some films are being given the 3D makeover? And i don’t mean remakes. The Lord Of The Rings, Blade Runner, The Matrix Trilogy and Star Wars (All 6 films) are being ‘upgraded’ to 3D. Which i think will please alot of people indeed. Its certainly got me waiting in anticipation, especially Star Wars…
