Martin Scorsese, James Cameron talk 3D, “Hugo” – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Tonight, I’m catching up with two films that have been picking and choosing their “spots” in the ongoing Oscar race.
Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” earned headlines earlier in the season when the auteur brought an unfinished print of “Hugo” to the New York Film Festival. Tonight’s version should be completely finished, and I’m dying to see what he conjures for his first foray into 3D storytelling.
Right after, I’ll run into a theater showing Jason Reitman’s new “Young Adult” so I can interview the director, his screenwriter (Diablo Cody) and cast over the weekend. Paramount has concocted a clever marketing strategy for Reitman’s dark comedy, taking it on the road with cast and crew Q-and-A sessions in select cities.
Oh, and Focus Feature’s “Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy” is on this weekend’s menu (finally!!), but more on that as we get closer.
Three highly-anticipated films in a 48-hour span. And an invite to “War Horse” in the inbox. It’s beginning to look a lot like the Oscar season.
As we scramble to get all of this great coverage up on the site, here’s a great feature with Scorsese and James Cameron talking 3D. I haven’t been a fan. But between “Hugo,” Spielberg’s “Tintin” and the work Cameron continues to tinker on, we might be turning a corner with this technology. As an expert recently blogged, if these tree can’t figure out how to use 3D, no one can.
