Territories lining up spots for 'Avatar'
by Ian Mundell

BRUSSELS -- After a tentative start, Europe is embracing 3D in-theater advertising. Most territories are lining up 3D spots to catch the "Avatar" wave in December, with expectations of growth in 2010.

Some territories have embraced the potential of having cinema advertising match the films screening, while others have reservations. In the Netherlands, advertisers are unwilling to invest in the more costly format. And in Italy, ads are shown on different projectors from the main feature, and these are not 3D-ready.

Price is commonly mentioned as a barrier, with advertisers worried that 3D spots are expensive to produce, yet only play with a few films on a small proportion of screens.

Actually, I was really surprised when, before the Pixar's "Up" screening (about 3 weeks ago), I watched a funny s-3D commercial of some cookies (Pavesi's Gocciole...yummi...)...here in Italy!
