With the success of Avatar, H’wood is going nutso over 3D movies (stereoscopic, not animation). Warner Bros. thinks Green Lantern would make a really keen movie to turn a glasses wearing event, and have dictated to director Martin Campbell to make it so.

This follows a growing list of movie Warner is tweaking to compete with 20th Century Fox including the Sucker Punch, Clash of the Titans, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and probably more by the time you finish reading this story.

The gimmick didn’t save the industry back in the 50s, but hey, I’m not the one in charge, so we’ll let those that don’t remember the old days repeat the failures once again.

    ah dam it. I had some hope for this film and this may be the deal breaker for me. I am hoping H’wood gets off this 3D thing soon. When I go to see a movie I want to see a story being told, not a dam tech demo. 3D every now and then when it fits into the film can be good but not on everything just because you can.
