If you thought those special $150 TRON: Legacy 3D glasses by Oakley were ridiculous, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Later this week, Oakley is set to release two additional pairs of designer 3D glasses for $120 a pop. Then, in December, Marchon will release a pair of Calvin Klein 3-D glasses for $180 a pair. Each obviously looks way cooler, will be much more comfortable, and should actually improve the 3D viewing experience – plus, it’s probably better for the environment not to have to recycle 200 pairs of glasses after every single movie – but would you really spend $200 for your own pair of 3D glasses? Read some more about it after the jump. Read More »

The Best and Worst of Comic-Con 2010

Comic-Con 2010 is over, and I’m still reeling from the experience. Just like last year, the entire event was a whirlwind with insane crowds, a healthy dose of line waiting, and some unexpected bits of awesome. By the time it was over, I was more than ready to go home. But I know for a fact that in a week or two I’ll be screaming “We have to go back!” — while disheveled and inexplicably bearded.

At some point this week, the entire /Film crew will record their overall thoughts of the event on a special episode of the /Filmcast. But for now, here are my personal picks for the best and worst of Comic-Con 2010. (Fair warning: I didn’t include some major panels [see: Marvel stuff] that failed to get me excited. If you liked those panels, and others I didn’t mention let us know in the comments.)

mann-scorsese

Two film tech tidbits for you: First up, we’ve caught word from the Italy-based blog screenWEEK that Michael Mann is apparently very interested in doing a 3D feature at some point. In a recent event with Mann regarding Public Enemies, someone in the crowd asks him about shooting in 3D. Mann responds:

Yes! I’d love to shoot a 3D movie, it’s something that fascinates me! The more the audience is immersed the better it is!

This should be no surprise since Mann has a history of embracing new film technologies, much to the chagrin of some purists out there. In the same piece, Mann discusses how he decided to shoot Public Enemies digitally, and I think it also speaks to his stance on 3D.

Tron Flynn's light cycle

Here’s the central irony of Comic Con: because of the absurd Hall H admittance policies and the vagaries of scheduling, I didn’t get to see the new TRON Legacy footage. But I did interview the director, Joseph Kosinski. The full transcript of that interview will be posted shortly, but I did want to share a quick tidbit that fans of Steven Lisberger’s original 1982 film might like.

The film will feature a sequence set in the ’80s — not in the 1982 time period of the original film, but sometime later in the decade — with slightly retro stylings, and there will be a second ‘new’ light cycle design seen in that sequence, upping the new ‘cylce designs in Legacy to two. We’ve seen both of these light cycles in concept art posted today, and the ’80s sequence is what justifies (or introduces) the Flynn light cycle v2. Read More »
