Okay, this is possibly the best use of 3-D we've heard of since Avatar ushered in a new era of 3-D movies. Mostly we hear about films getting made in 3-D and we think, why? With Plan 9 from Outer Space we think, why did it take so long?!?
According to ScifiPulse:
Those pesky aliens that want to resurrect dead humans as zombies and vampires to stop mankind from creating a sun bomb will soon be able to do it in full color and in 3-D, as Edward D. Wood Jr's original 1959 campy Sci-Fi film, Plan 9 From Outer Space will be converted into full 3-D, it was announced today by San Diego-based 3-D Production & Conversion studio PassmoreLab.
Plan 9 is often called the worst movie ever made, which is exactly why it needs to be done in 3D.
"Being dubbed "worst ever" was the probably the best thing that ever happened to this film," said Greg Passmore, president of PassmoreLab. "That label started a cult following, where it gained a massive fan base, with me included. It may be known as the "worst movie", but it's about to get best conversion treatment available. I am delighted to convert the original film into 3D using our proprietary technology."
And we've saved the best news for last: Plan 9 From Outer Space, Now in 3-D! is going to get a small (we suspect very small) limited theatrical release! This could only get better with the addition of Smell-O-Vision. ...
