Well, it looks like not only has 3D re-joined the ranks of cinema, but it could be taking over permanently. When James Cameron sat back and watched the 3D success of his smash hit “Avatar”, he noticed that the technology will not only stick around for a while, but possible take the film industry by storm. Headlining the Cameron-Pace Group, James Cameron is looking to encourage film-makers, game designers, and broadcasters to utilize the 3D technology to push every aspect of the business to new heights.
Cameron expects to see a complete conversion in both the commercial cinema and home theatre markets in the next 3-5 years. As directors and game developers begin to use the budding 3D market, many seek to discredit any notions that the movement is going to last. Numbers from the box-office last year suggested that maybe the craze was starting to die down, but with 3 of the top 5 movies in the world using the stereoscopic 3D element, those hoping to see an end to the medium may find themselves out of luck.
