The Host 2 is Probably Going to Be in 3D


Although I typically take this sort of news item and transform it into a shoddy, poorly-worded platform for my venomous anti-3D leanings, the news that “The Host 2″ will be presented in the third dimension is actually somewhat interesting. Assuming, of course, that they’re going to actually shoot the film in 3D and not hastily convert the footage to the popular format moments before releasing it into theaters. The proposed sequel will have a budget of roughly 17 million American dollars, and the producers are currently looking for investors to help foot the cinematic bill.

Here’s some quotations on the subject lifted directly from The Hollywood Reporter:

“Given the nature of the film and the current trends in the global film market, we think that 3D is the medium to go,” said Su-yeon Kim at the company’s international business division. “But this will delay the film’s release date and bring significant changes to the film’s logistics.”

If all goes according to plan, “The Host 2″ should arrive in several South Korean theaters sometime next year.

    That’s awesome. I really enjoyed Host when it became available stateside way back. It led me to fing Chaw, also. That movies just as cool. These Korean directors really know how to take that American 70’s-80’s “monster on the loose” genre and make it enjoyable once again in the 21st century.

    “The Host” is one of my favorite South Korean films along with “Mother”, “Memories Of Murder”, “A Tale Of Two Sisters”, “Haeundae”, “Chaw”, “Phone”, “The Isle”, “Save The Green Planet”, “Plastic Tree”, “My Sassy Girl”, “My Scary Girl”, the “My Wife Is A Gangster” trilogy, “Punch Lady”, “Twilight Gangsters”, “A.P.T.”, “Death Bell”, South Korea’s take on “Blade Runner” titled “Natural City” and of course “Old Boy” among others. I am not the biggest fan of 3-D. Although, I did enjoy “Resident Evil: Afterlife” in IMAX 3-D. I also enjoyed the UK film “Monsters” on demand in HD. I am looking forward to “The Host 2″ very much as I am also looking forward to “Skyline”, “The Troll Hunter” and “Super 8″. I enjoy monster mayhem films like “Cloverfield”, “Long And Dark Haired Monster Gerharha” and “The Mist” very much. Patiently waiting for “Chaw”, “Monsters” and “The Troll Hunter” to arrive on blu-ray.
