Tolles Bild aus dem langen und grandiosen Artikel über Hollywoods 3D-Wahn und die kommenden Filme von Spielberg, Scorsese

und Coppola im Walt Street Journal.

Scorsese, Coppola and Spielberg are coming out with 3-D movies—just as audiences are showing less interest in the pricey format.

When Francis Ford Coppola’s first 3-D film, “Twixt,” premieres next month at the Toronto Film Festival, audiences will be provided with 3-D glasses, but they aren’t supposed to wear them for the whole movie. The legendary director of “The Godfather” movies, mindful that the funny spectacles can be uncomfortable for some viewers, decreed that an image should flash on the screen telling the audience when to put them on and take them off.

Three-D technology is at a critical juncture in Hollywood, its mixed track record leaving few clues as to whether it will be a transformative leap like talkies or color, a limited platform like Imax or little more than a doomed gimmick like Smell-O-Vision or Sensurround.
