Three pieces of news today in the stereoscopic world:
- Universal Orlando has announced that the Jimmy Neutron Nicktoon Blast at Universal Studios Orlando will be replaced by a new 4D adventure based on the hit 3D film “Despicable Me.” The attraction will use Infitec glasses, similar to those used on the new Star Tours attractions at Disneyland and Disney Hollywood Studios theme parks.
- Universal also announced that The Amazing Adventures of Spider-man at Universal’s Islands of Adventure will be upgraded to digital 3D at 4K resolution with additional animation added to the attraction. Spider-man will also feature Infitec technology.
- James Cameron’s “Titanic,” the second highest grossing motion picture of all time, will celebrate its 15th anniversary just days before the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail, with a rerelease in digital 3D on April 6, 2012. The film is being remastered in 4K and the conversion is being overseen by Cameron and producing partner Jon Landau. This means that we’ll have three planned Cameron directed 3D films on the horizon, with the two “Avatar” sequels scheduled for release in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
