Pirates of the Caribbean 4 3D

You’ll be watching Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow wearing funny glasses next year, as Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be arriving in 3D clothes…

This, sadly, makes something of a refreshing change.

It's been confirmed that Disney's forthcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, is the latest movie to be jumping aboard the 3D bandwagon. So what's the change? Namely, that the film will actually be shot in 3D, rather than having to endure the increasingly dreaded post-production bolt-on which has become so favoured in recent times.

What's sad about Pirates' 3D being tackled in such a manner is that it's very much in a minority. Love or loathe the trend towards 3D filmmaking, it still makes sense to commit to the process properly if you're going to do it. As such, 3D needs to be catered for at all stages of the shoot, and not in the editing suite.

That said, we still don't remember the first three Pirates movies appearing to cry out for 3D in the first place. But when there's a premium that can be added to the ticket price, it's a brave studio in the current climate that resists the call.

Disney has also confirmed that its decision to add 3D at this stage will not be delaying the release of the film, which is still set for May 20th 2011.
