Movie Mesh

3D in movies will become common place in the not too distant future as more and more theaters are being equipped with 3D using ReadD and Dolby is aiming to provide 3D capabilities for existing movie screens later this year.

Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief executive of DreamWorks Animation SKG, is so gung-ho about 3-D that he has said his studio might start exclusively releasing movies in the format as early as 2009 with its “Monsters vs. Aliens” movie.

These days, 3-D films are more than just a gimmick.

For theaters owners and studios, the technology could be a lifesaver, luring people back to multiplexes for an experience that cannot be matched by sophisticated home theater systems or stolen by pirates with hidden camcorders.

“The momentum is gathering, and I think this is probably the most exciting thing from a filmmaking and filmgoing experience that has happened in my time in the business,” Katzenberg said. “There’s nothing more compelling than this.”
