No doubt this news item generated a spirited hullabaloo and no small degree of consternation among movie bloggers in February, 1935. Paris, Feb. 4., Louis Lumiere, aged 81, who 42 years ago invented one of the earliest moving picture cameras, has now devised a stereoscopic film. The apparatus includes a camera with two lenses which takes pictures at slightly different angles so that the pictures, when projected on to the…

Scorsese’s Hugo Cabret coming for Thanksgiving

Read More

Distribution rights for Martin Scorsese’s 3D adventure, Hugo Cabret has been transferred to Paramount and its release date has been bumped up 2 weeks to November 23 for optimal family-friendliness.

Three-time Oscar winner Thelma Schoonmaker talks about adopting 3D into her impressive skillset for Scorsese’s adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Thanks to Kevin K for the link-around to the paywall-protected interview at ScreenDaily. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a whole new kind of film for us,‚Äù she says. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs very visual, very little dialogue, lots of opportunities for wonderful 3D shots, because the boy‚Äôs job is to keep the clocks wound, so…
