James Cameron Blesses Sony's Horrible 3D Spider-Man Reboot
Because James Cameron has made a lot of money, heís Hollywood Jesus. It makes sense. They worship money, he has a lot of money which means heís kind of like heís the son of money, and that makes him their messiah. So everyone wants him to bless their upcoming projects and now it seems Sony actually got him to do it.
MTV says director Marc Webb and Sonyís Spider-Man reboot team crawled up out of Satanís lair, ascended to heaven, and met with James Cameron. The topic? 3D. Cameronís St. Peter, Jon Landau, says that Webb ďwants to do the next one in 3-D, which theyíve announced that they want to do. So, we want to try to support that as much as possible.Ē
Thatís good news for the one or two of you who actually want to see this sure to be horrible Spider-Man reboot movie and who arenít yet sick of watching movies in 3D. At least Spideyís 3D will suck less than the slapdash 3D being used on movies like Clash of the Titans. Me? I donít care how many pairs of glasses they make me wear, unless Spider-Man actually shoots webbing out of the screen and swings over the theater, I couldnít be less interested in seeing him go back to high school. Been there, done that.
Call me cynical, but I canít help wondering whether this might be less about picking Cameronís brain for 3D techniques than it is about Sony trying to get fanboys on their side by throwing the name of the guy who made Avatar around in conjunction with their reboot. They could use some good PR, their Spider-Man redo is almost universally reviled. Now Avatar L.A.R.P.ers everywhere are suddenly on board with their horrible Spider-Man idea. Itís not like they can think for themselves.
