3D Movies Return: The story of a century of art and gimmickery in stereovision
by Mark Roessler
In case you haven`t noticed, 3D movies are making a comeback. Again.
Since the start of the year, at least 14 new 3D movies have been slated for release from all the major Hollywood studios. It seemed that every week during the summer a new stereoscopic feature hit the screens—mostly animated family fare, rock concerts, and horror movies—and more are on their way this holiday season.
James Cameron will release his first feature since Titanic, a science fiction epic called Avatar. Forest Gump director Robert Zemekis is at work on a 3D Christmas Carol. Early next year Tim Burton will present a multi-dimensional Alice in Wonderland. Steven Spielberg is at work on a 3D treatment of the Tintin stories. Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has announced that his next movie, a remake of the World War II aviation drama, Dam Busters, will be in 3D, and to up the ante, several Websites report he`s pledged never to film a movie in two dimensions again.
