Watch: James Cameron Discusses 3D in 'Hugo' with Martin Scorsese
"Your film is about the magic of cinema, and the movie is magical to watch." Great quote. THR has posted an entertaining new video featuring two legendary filmmakers, James Cameron and Martin Scorsese, together talking about using 3D in Scorsese's new film Hugo, out in theaters this Thanksgiving. The video is a two-minute follow-up to a full-on Q&A that Scorsese & Cameron recently gave for the film at a screening in Hollywood. There's a full transcript of questions on THR, but the video features some of the better quotes from the two. This is Scorsese's first foray into 3D, but it looks like he has even impressed Cameron. Enjoy!
Watch the video with James Cameron and Martin Scorsese discussing Hugo 3D, embedded via THR:
Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan (Asa Butterfield) who lives in the walls of a train station becomes wrapped up in a mystery with his young new friend (Chloe Moretz) that involves his late father and an automaton.
Hugo, originally The Invention of Hugo Cabret, is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of films like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Casino, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, The Departed and Shutter Island most recently. The screenplay was written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Time Machine, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd, Rango, Coriolanus, Bond 23), based on Brian Selznick's book. It was filmed in 3D. Paramount is bringing Hugo to theaters everywhere November 23rd this Thanksgiving. Trailer here!

"Imagine Citizen Kane in 3D?" I'm sure Xerxexx will be very excited for that ;o)

I'm already ahead of you. I'll sum it up with one giant "Ugh." So here goes: "UGH! Dramatic 3-D? Really!?"

Why is Cameron in this featurette?

Looks like it could be pretty damn cool, but seeing Cameron push 3D so much in these vids is almost like watching a parody now.
