Even Plan 9 From Outer Space Isn't Safe From 3D
As many people argue about what the best film of all-time is, there are just as many, if not more, who try and make an argument for the worst film of all-time. Is it Manos: The Hands of Fate? Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2? Any of the Friedberg/Seltzer abortions? As often as debates are held and titles introduced, there are some classics that always rank in the top five. Edward D. Wood Jr.'s Plan 9 From Outer Space is one of these films...and now we'll get to see it in 3D!
Continuing the awful trend that is spreading like a virus in Hollywood, MarketSaw is reporting that the quintessential bad movie is going to be converted and sent to a theater near you. The film will tour with the title Plan 9 from Outer Space, Now in 3D! in limited release around the country, and is expected to hit Video On Demand later this summer. The project will not be using the original print, however, rather the colorized version put out by Legend Films in 2006.
And we've done it, folks. We have officially reached the end of the line: 3D is officially a gimmick once again. There's not a single reason in the world why Plan 9 From Outer Space needs to be seen in 3D. I'll agree that it's a film that deserves to be seen in large groups, and God bless every independent theater that shows it on any kind of regular basis, but why convert it? Perhaps they are trying to accomplish the impossible: make the worst film of all time even worse.
