HOLLYWOOD – Steve McQueen’s second feature – Shame starring Michael Fassbender – is to get a 3D IMAX release this month.
James Cameron said that this ‘was exactly what 3D was for.’
The Aliens director went on and on:
Can you imagine Michael Fassbender’s massive performance on the massive IMAX screen and then add to that the 3D which will mean you can almost, in the words of Depeche Mode, reach out and touch it? I know that I’ll be first in line to see that.
Steve McQueen himself remains skeptical of the new technology.
‘Cinema itself is an immersive experience and I’m not sure what this can add,’ he told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY. ‘But then again, money.’
Shame will be on limited release in IMAX cinemas near you from Friday.
