Nicolas Cage talks the future of cinema

He has some insane plans

 

 

Our friends at Official Nintendo Magazine have had a chat with Nicolas Cage for the latest episode of NintendoTV, and they’ve shared some of the offbeat actor’s insights with us.

In the video above, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance star Cage explains his vision of the future of cinema after 3D, and let’s just say it’s as mind-explodingly insane as you’d rightfully expect from the man best known for his unhinged, livewire movie creations.

Check it out now!

For more from Cage, check out the full episode of NintendoTV, which also features an awesome 3D feature on the Aardman Animations studios. Check out a trailer for the episode right here.

Do you think Cage’s vision for the future of cinema could ever happen, or would it cause too many exploding heads? Let us know!

      Sounds perfectly plausible to me ~ It's just that Cinema tickets to go see it would coast a bomb for the 1 year or so.

      Seems too costly. 3D is retarded but it doesn't cost much more (if any more?) to show a 3D film in a cinema. Building these crazy, 360 degree cinemas would cost a lot and it wouldn't be worth spending all that money on a gimmick. 3D is a gimmick but doesn't cost so much. Plus, it would be f*****g stupid.

      I was expecting something totally wacky and out of this world, what Nic said isn't that far off from happening. I remember watching a BBC tech programe late one night where they were talking about trying to introduce smell into movies, they were trying out the device in China.

      Pumping smells ("Smell-O-Vision") was first tried in 1960 with Scent of Mystery and I'm sure there's been cases of Scratch-and-Sniff cards being used too.

      @Ali1748 Smellovision and similar delivery systems have been around since the late '50s, although seen mostly as fads and gimmicks (like 3D). If they do manage to make it mainstream this time - stay away from any showing of Blazing Saddles!

      @DravenCage, Yeah the scratch and sniff cards were used for the new Spy Kids film, I didn't see it myself so I don't know if it helps immerse you more or not but I'm guessing not. I also heard that in the 50's/60's when they experimenting with 3D and smell that they tried bringing touch into cinema by throwing water and other things at people. That's one thing I hope never comes back, there's nothing worse than soggy popcorn.
