"It's like I'm in 3-D..."
I honestly didn't expect Spider-Man 4 to be in 3D. The thought just never crossed my mind, I didn't see a reason for it. This news comes from the head honchos of Sony Picture themselves, Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton. In a recent interview they did with Forbes Pascel clearly suggests that Sam Raimi's next Spider-Man movie could be in 3D.
Forbes asks them about the future of 3D in the entertainment idustry The reply:
Pascal: For sure. You're not going to see a lot of animated movies that aren't in 3-D any more. I think Jeffrey Katzenberg preached that and he was right.
Lynton: I didn't understand what he was talking about until I saw [DreamWorks Animation's ( DWA - news - people )] Monsters vs. Aliens. It's a very immersive experience. It's like seeing perspective for the first time. I think it is something different and terrific and a new group of directors will have to figure out how to do it.
What about Live action movies?
Pascal: I think James Cameron's new movie [Avatar] could change the world. I think everyone is in anticipation thinking it's going to be like Star Wars. It's going to change the way you consume entertainment. I don't know that it will ever be the way you see dramas, but I can't say anymore that it won't be.
Then the big question... Are you considering doing any live action movies in 3-D? What about Spider-Man 4?
Pascal: Could be.
Lynton: People are paying a premium to see movies in 3-D and that's a very big deal. It's never been done before that someone says you have to pay more to see Spider-Man than a romantic comedy.
So there you have it folks! Personally I don't really care if it is in 3D or not. Sure it would be cool and interesting but it doesn't really matter if the story is not solid As long as I get to see another great Spider-Man movie then I don't care what format it is in. What do you prefer?
