Even James Cameron Is Sick Of 3D

Sci-Fi movies, more than any other, are the target of Hollywood’s new 3D craze. Just about every decent, science fiction blockbuster being release this year will require the use of goofy glasses. And while 3D is fun, a lot of people are starting to wonder whether we really need 3D on every film. In fact the people asking that question includes the guy who’s largely responsible for this new fad: James Cameron.

Cameron’s Avatar is a big part of why Hollywood’s so hot for 3D. But he’s not sure it’s a good thing. Cameron vented his frustration to Deadline today:

I shoot complicated stuff, I put real elements into action scenes and honestly, I am not sold right now on the conversion process. […] Right now, it looks like fake 3D, with layers that are very apparent. You go to the screening room, you are hoping to be thrilled, and you’re thinking, huh, this kind of sucks. People can say whatever they want about my movies, but they are technically precise, and if this isn’t going to be excellent, I don’t want to do it. And it is my choice.


Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Movie?

Neil Patrick Harris says a movie version of Joss Whedon’s popular web series Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog may be on the way. In it, he played the titular Dr. Horrible, a sympathetic mad scientist who tries to get the girl only to have everything go horribly wrong when his plans are interrupted by a egotistical superhero.

Talking up the possibility of a Dr. Horrible movie to MTV Harris says: “Apparently they’re making a ‘Dr. Horrible’ sequel — a feature film, I hope… You don’t want to necessarily make the feature film be an $80 million giant movie, because it defeats the purpose of what the first film was made to be… Then again, you don’t want it to be so low-brow that it’s not worth paying money to see as a movie.”

Space Suit George Clooney: Up In The Air’s Missing Anti-Gravity

george clooney space suitAs presently constructed, Jason Reitman’s Oscar nomianted Up in the Air couldn’t be less of a sci-fi movie if it tried. But in an early cut of the film, apparently Reitman had other ideas. What follows is a deleted scene from Up in the Air in which George Clooney dons a space suit and wanders through an airport. It finishes with him escaping the bonds of gravity and space walking up a skyscraper.

Does it fit with the rest of the film? Nope. Is it cool? Oh yes Watch:


Ride the Tronorail

Disney is planning big things to celebrate the release of Tron: Legacy, and we’re not just talking dead-end scavenger hunts. For starters, they’re redoing the Disney parks Tron style.

They’re transforming their monorails into Tron monorails. How will that look? Like this:


The transformed trains will be visible on the Epcot monorail line as early as this month. And if you look close, you’ll notice that the design of the futuristic motorcycle-like vehicles from the upcoming film Tron: Legacy also includes walls of trailing colored light.
