3-D For President!

Fans attend "U2 3D" premiere during 2008 Sundance Film Festival

2009 really seems like the year the 3-D movie crept up and bit us in the ass, metaphorically speaking. Like it or not, the 3-D movie mania is probably going to be sticking around for awhile. So far this year we’ve seen the good (My Bloody Valentine, Coraline, Up) the bad (Monsters vs. Aliens) and the ugly (Jonas Brothers 3-D Concert Experience).

There are many more on the horizon including A Christmas Carol 3-D starring Jim Carrey, which will probably be as frightening as it sounds, and James Cameron‘s Avatar, which Steven Soderbergh described as “the craziest shit ever.” Crazier than Bubble?!

The very latest news, however, is that Chinese Producer Wu Quiyun is close to completing the first TV series filmed in 3-D. According to Beijing news, 45 episodes (45 minutes in length, coincidentally) are being produced along with a theatrical feature. Just think of the effect this will have on the world…3-D TV means we can actually sit across from Norm at Cheers or rub Larry David’s bald spot for good luck. I can’t wait.

Posted below is the hilariously overdone promo ad for My Bloody Valentine 3D and a scene from the classic 3-D film House of Wax starring the late, great Vincent Price. The 1950s was actually the last time 3D was so popular.
