Apparently Hollywood is not getting the message about some fans detesting 3D. I guess you can’t blame them with films like Jackass 3D raking the money in. As was reported James Cameron is converting Titanic in 3D and has plans for Alien in the future.
It looks like Lucas is also itching to make more money. Not only will he be converting all of his Star Wars films in 3D, he will also be giving Indiana Jones a 3D makeover.
According to BlueSkyDisney:
Next month, Lucasfilm will announce that they’re converting the Indiana Jones Saga to 3D as well. The films will be converted and released in a similar fashion as the Star Wars films with “Raiders of the Lost Ark” the first out of the gate.
While I love Indiana Jones and share his distaste for Nazi’s I do not know if these films are a good candidate for 3D conversion. I personally think that classics should be left alone in the manner that they are. I am fine with tweaking the print of a film but converting a film to 3D just to make money seems like a great way to alienate fans. If this trend continues I guess we can expect to see Chunk doing the Truffle Shuffle and Ghostbusters getting slimed in 3D.
I for one hope that does not happen. What are your thoughts?
