Shyamalan's The Last Airbender to get shitty post-op 3D treatment


23rd April 2010

As long as filmmakers keep reaching for that extra 3D dollar, we'll keep Photoshopping dumb little 3D glasses on their characters' faces.

There's two ways of looking at the Clash Of The Titans fiasco; one is that it was a pretty terrible event movie and the post-wrap conversion into 3D was so bad it almost undid all the hard work that people like James Cameron have poured into advancing the technology; the other is that it made a shit load of money. Guess which one matters more!

Titans' rather large box-office grab equals easy money for any other studios looking to plump their receipts, and that's exactly what Paramount are planning for The Last Airbender. The 'fantasy action epic', or Captain Planet rip-off as I prefer to call it, will now be released in 3D, despite the fact that director M Night Shyamalan didn't shoot it that way. I really don't want to be one of those douches that starts spelling your name $hyamalan. Don't make me that guy.

Producer Frank Marshall broke the news on Twitter, then followed up by claiming they'd been "looking at the 3D for months". Which, of course, means precisely nothing - he and Paramount were presumably waiting to see if Clash Of The Titans reaped as much green as they suspected it would.

Can you bring yourself to care? Can I? Let's not forget this is a movie directed by M Night Shyamalan, whose last three movies were The Village, Lady In The Water and The Happening. Should he even be allowed to make movies any more? If you ask me, he should be in prison. The only shocking twists he'll be making in there will be from his pelvis.
