Report: 3D films biz growth will be gradual
Most productions limited to sci-fi, horror and concert genres
by Carl DiOrio

Barring dramatic over-achievement by Jim Cameron's "Avatar" or other high-profile 3D pics, only slow growth is likely through 2014 in the number of 3D film productions because of lingering budgetary and creative concerns.

That's among key findings in a PricewaterhouseCoopers report on the future of 3D in Hollywood. The financial consultancy also said that most 3D live-action production will be limited to sci-fi, horror and concert genres, and 3D-animated slates at Disney and DreamWorks will be closely scrutinized by rivals.

Unfortunately there is bad news on the Jim Carrey Xmas Carol front, it cost $200 Million (with a capital 'M') to produce and reportedly has only grossed just over half that so far. :(

Maybe it was the subject matter, sometimes just because a story is a classic it doesn't mean we need another re-make. :D
I came here to chew bubblegum and to see 3D...and I'm all out of bubblegum!

(hmm, John Carpeter's "They Live" in 3-D...)



EDIT: oops! I somehow quoted myself, sorry.
