Green Lantern, Sucker Punch and Alien prequel all in 3D

So the 3D thing isn't really a craze or a gimmick any more -- it's apparently the standard. At least for anything that has a big budget and isn't a romcom.

Warner Bros. has announced that its new non-Batman superhero and hopeful franchise GREEN LANTERN will be crafting emerald objects in three eye-popping dimensions. The studio will also release Zack Snyder's psychedelic action flick SUCKER PUNCH in the 3D format.

LANTERN is still doing test footage for its impending shoot, so filming in 3D shouldn't be a problem. But PUNCH has already rolled before cameras, so the studio will obviously need to retrofit the visuals with an additional D a la CLASH OF THE TITANS.

Also, a site called Shadow Locked is claiming that Ridley Scott's ALIEN prequel will also feature a second set of jaws snapping at your face in 3D. They heard this straight from ALIEN art director Roger Christian (who might be more notorious for directing BATTLEFIELD EARTH). And for the record, Christian is confident that Ridley has a handle on what to do with the deadly space beasts: "Ridley told me some of his ideas when we were here in Toronto. He has a very clear understanding of where this should go."

So there you have it. Update the prescriptions for your eyeglasses and up the dosage on your migraine meds -- 3D isn't going anywhere, except right toward your cranium.
