James Cameron Believes 3D Movies Are ‘Not Finished’

However, the format would see a surge in popularity throughout the 2000s, culminating in 2009 with James Cameron. Avatar. The film, set in the alien world of Pandora, was built around 3D, using the format as the film’s amplifier instead of a gimmick on the side. However, after Avatar ended its run at the box office, resulting in the highest-grossing film of all time, 3D began to lose popularity again.

It’s just now part of your choices when you go to the cinema to see a big blockbuster movie…I liken it to color. When color movies first came out, it was a people went to see movies because they were in color. I think back in the days of ‘Avatar’ people were going to see movies because they were 3D… I think that had an impact on how movies were presented which is now sort of accepted and is part of the zeitgeist and the way it’s done. »
