Will someone tell Hollywood executives that 3-D is not the saving grace of the film industry? The way things are going you’d think this was the fifties and movies were competing with TV all over again. According to ShockTillYouDrop, Joss Whedon‘s highly anticipated thriller, The Cabin in the Woods has been pushed back an entire year, and it’s all 3-D’s fault!
The original release date for Cabin in the Woods was set for February 5, 2010, but MGM Studios has decided to push it back to January 14, 2011. What’s the method behind their madness? They say it’s because the early response to the film has been so phenomenal that they’re going to spend six months or so converting the picture to 3-D. What the hell? Why does everything NEED to be in 3-D?! It’s not that amazing, and it’s getting really old, really quick.
Cabin in the Woods already had a lot of good things going for it, and they had to go and add “more.” This entire rendering process is unnecessary and not to mention expensive. The last time I checked MGM was in the hole. They’ve been at the corner of broke and bankrupt for a while, and this is what their wasting their money on?
What do you think about Cabin in the Woods being pushed back? Do you care if it’s in 3-D?
