Scarlet, Simple answer ....
I stood in line to get a movie ticket and the three movie goers in front of me asked if they were showing a 3D movie on a flat screen.
And based on my own experience, once I get ten minutes into a movie, I could care less if it's in 3D or not.
Actually the only interesting 3D effect I saw recently was the ending credits of Despicable Me when those minions were pushing a ladder out over the heads of the audience and walking to the end of it. Great 3D effect and very funny, but most of the audience had already left the theater.
I'm probably wrong but I think 3D will be gone soon, but "Smell-O-Vision" will come in to take its place (maybe). Or maybe Cinerama ... the most visually exciting of all time.
And maybe even Cinemascope or the process in which "Shane" was filmed. (Vistavision?_
Here in LV they are selling tickets which allow you to sit in a seat that moves and reacts to whatever is being shown on screen. The earthquake scenes in '2012' were pretty damn impressive.
Ummm no. The 3D revolution just startedHong Kong filmmakers shoot 'first' 3D porn film
HONG KONG (AFP) – A group of Hong Kong filmmakers have started shooting what they claim will be the world's first 3D pornographic film, a report said Sunday.
The 3.2 million-US-dollar '3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy', set for release in May, has already generated interest in a host of Asian film markets, as well as Europe and the US, the Sunday Morning Post reported.
Loosely based on a piece of classical Chinese erotic literature, The Carnal Prayer Mat, the movie will star Japanese adult actresses Yukiko Suo and Saori Hara, the Post said.
The film chronicles the story of a young man who, after being introduced to the erotic world of a duke, realises his ex-wife is the love of his life and features "orgies, swinging and some very graphic sex scenes", the paper said.
Producer Stephen Shiu acknowledged that censors would likely block the movie's screening in mainland China, a key market for Hong Kong filmmakers.
"(But) we are almost closing deals with some markets including Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia and some pay TV channels in Hong Kong," Shiu told the paper.
Italian director Tinto Brass has announced he would produce a 3D remake of his 1979 erotic film Caligula, while Hustler plans to release a pornographic spoof of 3D science fiction film Avatar, the top-grossing movie of all time which has earned some 2.7 billion US dollars worldwide since its release.
