3D, 3D, and more 3D ahead
The Guardian, a British newspaper talks about the upcoming 3d movies such as Scorsese's Hugo Cabret. And they are quoting James Cameron : "Simple, straightforward drama, no visual effects, no action, no explosions, no big stylistic things going on – that actually benefits from 3D more than those big action scenes". Of course, with a large bit of its last year 257M$ income coming from its Cameron-Pace 3D technology department, you may think J.C. is maybe not completely objective...
The next big 3D releases
Titanic: James Cameron spent 18 m$ to add one "D" to his fabulous 15-years old 2D blockbuster to be released on April 6, 2012.
Hugo: Next Friday marks the release of Martin Scorsese's Hugo, 3D adaptation of Brian Selznick's novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Set in 1930s Paris, Hugo Cabret is a thief and an orphan, living in the walls of a train station. Watch the CBC interview of the Hugo Cabret actors here under.
The Hobbit: Peter Jackson is in New Zealand filming The Hobbit in 3D.
The Great Gatsby: In Australia, Baz Luhrmann is making his much-anticipated The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, in 3D. (He's also making it in good, old-fashioned, 'flat' 2D too).
