CAMERON: SOME FILMS SHOULD NOT BE RELEASED IN 3D

Director James Cameron, whose Avatar touched off the recent 3D trend, has accused Hollywood studios of using the process simply “to make money” and often forcing it on filmmakers “who are not comfortable or do not like 3D. Speaking at a forum in Mexico City, Cameron maintained that studios are “not using 3D properly” — particularly when it comes to converting movies shot in 2D to 3D. But even some blockbusters, he claimed, exhibited no requirement for 3D. “Man of Steel, Iron Man 3 and all those movies should not necessarily be in 3D. If you spend $150 million on visual effects, the film is already going to be spectacular.” Some reports observed that Cameron’s remarks appeared to be at odds with his comments about 3D five years ago, when he said that there “should be no creative reason why any film could not be shot in 3D and benefit from it.”
