3D Saves the Movie Theater

Yahoo has a piece about the future of film as seen by James Cameron. As he sees it, digital 3D is the future. The process that creates these modern 3d films use computers to create the illusion of 3D as opposed traditional techniques that require two cameras. This means that Cameron and others will be able to go back to previous releases and retroactively make them 3D and re-release them.

Cameron hints at the tie in to future of the theater industry. Basically 3D is the type of experience that would be available in the theaters that wouldn't be as great in a home video setup. I'm not sure that it alone will be the savior of the theater industry, however it could be a good component of its salvation. Of course, it could be a cheap gimmick we'll have to see it first to know for sure. --Terrence Ryan
