Dreamworks Going All 3D in 2009

DreamWorks Animation plans to release all its pics in 3-D starting in 2009 reports Variety.

Their Summer 2009 release “Monsters vs. Aliens” starts production this spring and will be made with 3-D in mind from the outset. Studio will produce two versions, with a standard version for nondigital screens, DVD and TV.

Fox will release the James Cameron-helmed “Avatar” in 3-D in 2009, and Disney will put “Meet the Robinsons” on about 600 digital 3-D screens this month.

There are just over 500 digital 3-D screens in the U.S., but that’s expected to expand to several thousand by 2009.
