Is 3D still cool or a 'Tax' on moviegoers? Three top directors say the format's overused

ChicagoTribune.com has a Reuters report from Comic-Con where Alfonso Cuaron, Edgar Wright and Marc Webb discussed everything from high school teachers to Buster Keaton, but there was one subject where they were all in agreement – 3D.

Even though both Cuaron and Webb’s next films were shot in 3D – “Gravity” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” respectively – they both acknowledged there are too many 3D movies out there.

“In most cases it’s not necessary,” Cuaron said. “In most cases with movies being released in 3D, 3D is an afterthought.”

He said “Gravity” would be in 3D because the format was “still cool” when he conceived the film five years ago. The title page of his original screenplay called it a “space suspense in 3D.” He has taken great steps to make sure the film looks good, which helps explain why it’s taken almost five years to make.
