The Future Perspective of 3D Movies

When movie goers seat themselves in front of the big screen in 2009 they are going to notice a significant change in the type of films they are going to see from the ones that were in exhibition before 2008, not to mention adjust the glasses on their nose. Over the course of the last ten years (1998-2008) home entertainment was changed forever by the DVD in the late 90's, television's expansion into higher quality with HD-TV, and in addition to a huge leap forward in 2006 with Blu-ray Hi-Def DVDs, movie goers were gifted with a smaller window between theatrical exhibition and home video release. This hasn't meant a decline in movies creativity and ingenuity, although certain trends furthered to such a decline in artistic integrity, because the years saw epic trilogies grow alongside indie hits but alas, saw fewer people in the seats due to rising ticket prices.

One epic trilogy came from the very pages of a tale of One Ring to Rule Them All, and proved to be One Movie to Rule Them All. The man behind The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003) Peter Jackson is teaming up with the MAN behind Jaws (1975), Indiana Jones (1981-2008), and Jurassic Park (1993-2009) Steven Spielberg to release Europe's favorite Belgian comic-strip hero Tintin...
