The Baz Luhrmann directed 3D remake of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic, The Great Gatsby will open the 2013 Cannes film festival. The 3D period film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. The Great Gatsby’s was scheduled for release last year but was pushed to May 10, 2013. Filmmakers needed a bit more time to put on the finishing touches. Industry executives are waiting on the sidelines to see how the The Great Gatsby performs in 3D. A few industry folks still think 3D is just for animation, action and fantasy genre films…that’s not the case at all.
Check out the “Battle of Warsaw” in 3D if you get the chance. Battle of Warsaw stars the beautiful Natasza Urbanska, Borys Szyc and Daniel Olbrychski and directed by: Jerzy Hoffman.
If the scenes are captured correctly and designed with 3D in mind, including set design/production design/placement of actors in the foreground-mid and background, a 3D musical or narritive could be an amazing immersive experience.
Let’s hope The Great Gatsby plays well at this year’s Cannes Film Festival!
