James Cameron Says 'Man of Steel,' 'Iron Man 3' Didn't Need to Be in 3D
"If you spend $150 million on visual effects, the film is already going to be spectacular," the director said. "I do not think Hollywood is using 3D properly."
James Cameron said he “does not think Hollywood is using 3D properly” during the Tag DF technology forum last week in Mexico City, according to Vulture.
He explained, “[It's] one thing [to shoot] in 3D and another to convert to 3D,” adding that it's a matter of studios "[trying] to make money," "pushing 3D to directors who are not comfortable or do not like 3D.”
His examples for such films include two of the biggest releases of the summer: "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, perfect.”
The Oscar-winning director and 3D pioneer is in preproduction on his Avatar sequels.
