3D 3D the 3D, 3Ding to the 3D.

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | April 28, 2010 | Comments ()


Here are a few posts from the various sundry news sites from the last couple of days:

  • The prequel of Alien will be two films ... in 3D! (source: SFFMedia)
  • Paramount is making The Ring 3 ... in 3D! (source: THR)
  • There's a new trailer for Airbender out that adds nothing, but at the very end tacks on ... in 3D! (source: SciFi Wire)
  • Samuel Bayer refused to convert A Nightmare on Elm Street to 3D (source: Slashfilm)

Hell, the LA Times even got into the mix and wrote not one, but three entire articles on the same day called "Popularity of 3-D is affecting how screenplays are written" (source: LA Times), "3-D: Hollywood's Latest Hot Trend" (source: LA Times), and "Will 3-D summer releases pop out or fall flat?" (source: LA Times). And all this only 3 days after they published "3-D gets a C-minus" (source: LA Times). Maybe they wouldn't have to lay off so many people if they didn't have all their reporters writing the same story every day. Just a thought.

Would you raise an eyebrow if every bit of film news felt a need to tell you in the title of the article if the director had decided to use a shakycam? This is all an elaborate way of giving official notice that I do not consider the fucking type of camera being used a unique and precious snowflake of newsworthy information.
