As pertaining to motion pictures, describes any film that exploits, in its marketing or promotion, the use of stereoscopic (3-dimensional) filmmaking techniques.

This blog is my notepad as I research a nonfiction book spotlighting 3-D genre films of the last century. While the book will focus primarily on films from the 60's, 70's and 80's this blog has no restrictions.

The Empire Strikes Back circa 1950

There’s really little relevance to 3-D in this post, other that the trailer presents this re-imagining of The Empire Strikes Back as a 50’s 3-D film. Many of the clips used go back into the 40’s and even 30’s. In many ways this is less of a parody of the second film in the Star Wars series (oh yah, it’s now considered the 5th film in the franchise), and more of a look at what surely influenced Lucas when he dreamed up the original Star Wars concept. 

Either way it’s a fun little bit of nonsense.
