3D 4 U
So did you see Avatar?
Probably the most hyped film of the year and with the possible exception of The Dark Knight, the most anticipated.
What did you think of it? Did it live up to your expectations, one thing is for sure the film is certainly living up to the hype at the box office; the film has made more than $300 million dollars in seventeen days.
Avatar; irrespective of what the audiences thought has managed to show how far the boundaries of cinematic technology have been pushed, never before has 3D looked so rich and so vibrant. It was one of the things that had people going back to see the film time and time again. Last year we had a number of films that utilized 3D technology, but 2010 will see a huge increase in the number of 3D films released. Gone are the days of dodgy cardboard glasses with coloured lenses looking more like something left over from a tin of Christmas chocolates rather than the cutting edge of technology; now we have retro styling and polarized lenses, we no longer have to feel self conscious about sitting in a cinema full of people looking like a Roy Orbison convention. We now have films conceived, written and filmed with 3D in mind, rather than a film with some CGI gimmicks thrown in; we now have something that uses 3D technology to enhance the viewing experience for audiences around the planet, and moves cinema to the next level.
In the coming 12 months we will have some good, some bad and some why bother, here are some of the titles that the film makers will be hoping will part you from your cash.Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp
How to train your Dragon, Piranha 3D, Step Up 3, Despicable Me, Saw VII, Shrek 4 Ever, Jackass, Rapunzel, Yogi Bear, Tron Legacy.
The future is bright, The future is 3D
