Martin Scorsese is looking to make a film in 3D!?!?!
I hope this won't be a trend.
It's pretty certain to be, since it's an experience which coaxes people back to the cinema again after declining audiences and people just waiting for the DVDs. But I bet the studios and directors hate the fact that electronics manufacturers are working towards 3D TVs so quickly. They'll eventually have to come up with something which is impossible to replicate in the home.
It is hard to argue with that because 3D is one thing that video games, movie pirates, legitimate dvd's and home cinema set-ups just don't do as well as the cinema but it is hard to escape the fact that 3D still a gimmick.
Most films don't need 3D but they are retrofitting themselves (Alice in Wonderland
, Clash of the Titans
) to draw the audience who have proven themselves willing to pay extra for the experience. Not that it makes the films better.
were deliberately filmed in 3D and look good because of it so I respect that more than these band-wagon jumpers.
As far as 3D consoles (Nintendo 3DS, PS3) and TVs goes, I'm not really and early adopter, I'll wait until the dust settles and prices come down but imagine 3D videogames... Imagine playing Dead or Alive Paradise! (any reason to put this trailer in!)
