t's also important to the studios that in order to show modern 3-D films exhibitors have to upgrade their projection equipment in such a way that movies can be distributed digitally rather than on film.
Yes it was a slow start but even now in Europe deals are being made this week to get cinemas converted to digital 3D projection.
I suggested last month to possibly shoot the pilot for the next Star Trek TV series in 3D high definition
and screen it at the cinema in 3D say a month before the series premieres as a promotional campaign. The rest of the series would be in shot 2D but it's an idea of how pilots can be made into limited screening events as any 3D digital cinema can play it and charge admission.
Sure the next Alien
film should be shot in 3D it only adds to the illusion of science fiction set on a spaceship in outer space.
