This weekend A Nightmare on Elm Street will be arriving in theatres near you. Weird thing is though, you won't have the option of viewing it in 3-D. Why not? Everything from Alice in Wonderland to Clash of the Titans has been converted. Because of the uprising of 3-D films, are you surprised to not have the dimensional choice this time around?
When New Line initiated several conversations about converting A Nightmare on Elm Street to 3-D, ‘we pushed back,’ says director Samuel Bayer. ‘This was shot in 2-D and was meant to be shown in 2-D.’ He added, ‘Just like I don’t want to see a lot of great movies remade’ — alluding to the other Hollywood vogue — ‘I don’t want to see a lot of them in 3-D.’3-D is all about money anyway! It is very nice to hear that a director is actually standing up for his vision. I applaud Bayer for not giving into the suits of Hollywood. There obviously is plenty of time for the money-grabbing 3D conversion trend down the road.
