Spider-Man 3 in 3D
All the big directors have been getting pretty crazed on 3D. Now that the technology has evolved, directors such as James Cameron and George Lucas are working to get films old and new into the 3D medium. The studios have begun to catch on and the latest example is Warner Bros' move to have 3D segments -- about 20 minutes of them -- in Superman Returns.
Though we had begun to assume that 3D, or should I say IMAX 3D, was becoming a trend for all big-budget films, Columbia Pictures just isn't feeling it for Spider-Man 3.
Spider-Man 3 Says No to 3D
According to USA Today, Columbia Pictures does not plan to get Spider-Man 3 into the 3D medium.
Sony says Spider-Man 3 is pretty much out of the running ("We're just trying to finish the movie," Bruer says), but Warner Bros. could cast a dimensional spell over Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, already booked into large-screen theaters for July 13 next year.
The news comes as somewhat of a bummer. After watching the teaser trailer for Spider-Man 3 I can only imagine the 3D possibilities during the high-swinging action sequences. Seriously, those scenes would have probably been too cool; if that is possible.
As long as Sam Raimi sticks with the quality of the last two films, however, I will let the whole no 3D issue slide.
