Weaver resigned to 3D future
Sigourney Weaver is convinced 2D films will soon be banished to the history books in the same way as black and white movies.
The Alien actress was part of the highest-grossing movie of all time, James Cameron's Avatar, which gave 3D technology a huge boost, and Weaver is sure all films will eventually be shot in the same way.
She tells the Independent, "I think 2D is going to be like black and white soon because 3D is the natural way that people encounter life, so it's a revolution the way that Greco-Roman sculpture was after hieroglyphics.
"It's the future, but it will be a while before people can achieve 3D consistently in a way that puts you in a world of the story in a seamless way. That's the object: to immerse you in a world, not to trick you or entertain you. And that's why it's more important perhaps for a regular movie; you should be in their world - whatever they say and decide and think should mean more to you because you can't divorce yourself..."
The actress also reveals she will be a part of Cameron's upcoming Avatar sequel, adding, "I'm excited to go back to Avatar. I know the story that James Cameron wants to tell is so much bigger."
