In a Time.com article on the future of 3-D filmmaking, Josh Quittner – lucky sum’bitch that he is – got to check out some footage of James Cameron’s Avatar, due in December. According to Quittner, "[Avatar] could be the thing that forces theaters to convert to digital." WETA’s VFX is creating an entire world from digital scratch, and Quittner apparently had trouble separating pixels from reality. Cameron theorized that 3-D viewing "is so close to a real experience that it actually triggers memory creation in a way that 2-D viewing doesn’t." Spielberg predicts it will be the biggest 3-D live-action film ever. I think that’s like saying Louisville has a chance of beating Morehead State in the NCAA Tourney today.
