Spider-Man’s High School Teen Angst Years to be in Spectacular 3D

Ugh. I don’t even have the energy to bash the 3D fad anymore, so I’m not going to bother from this moment on. I’ll dance a jig on its grave when it inevitably dies (and die it will), along with all the empty-headed Hollywood suits that have been stumbling all over themselves to turn everything into a 3D movie, whether it calls for it or not. Here’s Columbia’s press release regarding their decision to shoot Marc Webb’s “Spidey” reboot in 3D. So many words. They should have just said: “Duh. Avatar.” And then moved on.

Spider-Man will swing into theaters worldwide in 3D beginning July 3, 2012, it was announced today by Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing & Distribution. The new film which is still untitled, will begin production later this year directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin will produce the film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios.

Commenting on the announcement, Blake said, “Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we’re thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next installment in 3D. Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the world, and we know audiences are eager and excited to discover Marc’s fantastic vision for Peter Parker and the franchise.”

Spidey’s zits to strike 3D fear into the hearts of criminals everywhere July 3, 2012.

Woohoo! Look ma, I'm in 3D ... just like every other movie out there! Yay I'm special!

    OF COURSE IT IS. EVERYTHING is 3-D now. UGH! I’ll be dancing right along with you man. Certain things work well in 3-D (animated, and CG art) but real life stuff in 3-D just isn’t as exciting. This is such a dumb idea.

    LOL…what’s wrong with 3D man?

    It’s amazing, especially when I saw adverts on it at the cinema:)
    But watching Avatar da racist movie in 3D was good, but you get used to it and doesn’t become unique anymore. I do feel that 3D Movies are perfect with 3d animations instead not real live.

    i think that certain movies would look good in 3D but not spider-man. for a spider-man movie to be good you have to focus on character development, not special effects and shitty fight scenes… spider-man 3 was heavy in fight scenes but did not have one standout moment. Spider-man 2 on the other hand had a really fantastic scene where he stops the train, but what is the best part of that? its how the people reacted to him when they saw him without his mask. if the train scene was in 3D and there was no moment it would have been just another scene. please dont ruin what makes spider-man good buy throwing in 3D and forgetting everything else!
