    Discuss: Is Rian Johnson Right About 3D Technology Still Catching Up To The Ambitions Of Filmmakers?

    We're coming up to three years since "Avatar" became the biggest-grossing film in history, and any thought that 3D film, which James Cameron's picture helped to revive, was a flash in the pan seems to have been wishful thinking.

    CinemaCon in 3-D: Scorsese and Ang Lee and Oscar Contender 'Life of Pi'

    At this point, the folks at Twentieth Century Fox don't need to promote Ridley Scott's "Prometheus."

    2011: The Year In 3D
