Francis Ford Coppola Watched Part of Avatar Without 3D Glasses OnS

Joining fellow film industry chum Roger Ebert, Godfather director Coppola has spoken out against 3D movies, saying that "until you can watch 3D without glasses, it's the same thing we know."

Saying he'd rather make films in 2D with larger format for "some big scenes much like Abel Gance did with Napoleon" (or Christopher Nolan did with The Dark Knight), Coppola believes that the 3D format is just another way "to make you pay more money for a ticket." [Electronic House via CrunchGear]
