We say, in a fight, that good 3D movies might not win against the sheer number of bad 3D movies possibly out there, say, in the next few years. At least that is the current climate of discussion.
One source shared that a panel of filmmakers at this year’s Comic Con, which included Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men, Gravity), Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The World’s End), and Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) discussed this very idea.
Cuaron claims that Gravity, a film which has taken five years to complete was always thought up in 3D, but back when it was “cool.” Keep in mind, James Cameron recently spoke out against so many Hollywood films being unnecessarily converted to 3D, including Man of Steel, which we thought was great actually.
Anyway, it’s weird to hear that at least two of these filmmakers are currently working on 3D projects for release soon. And it’s also weird that the cat has been let out of the bag by big shot filmmakers which labels “bad” 3D movies as carrying a “Hollywood tax.”
