Ten 3-D films to hit cinemas in 2009February 23rd, 2009 - 3:08 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 23 (ANI): Hollywood is set to enter a new genre of 3-D films, with at least 10 films ready to hit the cinemas this year.
Director Steven Spielbergs Monsters v. Aliens will be the first film to kick off the trend of 3-D movies.
The film staring Brit Hugh Laurie, Kiefer Sutherland and Reese Witherspoon will hit the theatres on April 3.
Moviemaker Pixar has already announced that all its future films will use the hi-tech process.
Titanic director James Camerons sci-fi epic Avatar starring Sigourney Weaver and the Disney/Pixar action comedy Up are also due later in 2009.
Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince and Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen will also have special 3-D sequences, reports the Daily Star.
The original 3-D was introduced to the Hollywood scene in 1953 through films like It Came From Outer Space, but the technique fizzled out when people complained the blue and red glasses they had to wear gave them headaches.
The new 3-D method also uses specs, but Spielbergs DreamWorks partner Jeffrey Katzenberg promised: You will feel like you will be able to reach out and touch it.
However, cinemagoers have got a 3-D taster with the animated film Bolt, a tale about a dog that thinks its a superhero. (ANI)
