3D filmmaking might have been the box that Pandora opened with Avatar, but it’s not going away anytime soon, as two more genre-friendly flicks are getting the three-dimensional treatment.
Deadline has reported that Michel Gondry’s Green Hornet has been pushed back from December to January 2011 to be converted to 3D. According to what Sony’s Jeff Blake told them, this tactic is “doubling down” for the studio. “We’re investing more in the film to have it 3D. We’ve seen part of the movie. We love it. We believe in it. Whoever is spreading these rumors has not seen it. We’re going to finish Green Hornet in 3D and take 9 months to do it right.”
Additionally, Deadline has stated that Avatar: The Last Airbender will also be in 3D, which will likely cost anywhere from $5 to $10 million to convert. If you take a look at this trailer, it’s already visually pretty powerful, so 3D might be even hit sensory overload levels. That said, Mike Fleming does rightly state that because 3D movies kick a price hike around the $3 mark, it might cost a bit to get the image overhaul. What say you, Rama readers? You excited to see the 3D revolution, or do you think it’s not worth the price?
