Most 3D movies were made as 2D movies, then just have 3D effects added later. Not Resident Evil: Afterlife!
"I wrote things into this script that I knew would work well in 3D like lots of sets with depth-like tunnels, elevator shafts, and big wide landscapes," says Paul W.S. Anderson, the movie's writer, producer and director. He's not kidding around; the film was shot using the same 3D camera technology as James Cameron's Avatar.
"It's the reason why (actress) Milla (Jovovich) has an airplane in this movie — so I could shoot over these fantastic glaciers in Alaska with a tiny plane over a huge white landscape."
Interestingly, the Reuters piece containing the interview also says that a 3D game is in the works to complement an upcoming movie called Curandismo, which is "an action adventure story of an unlikely African American boy who was born with special healing powers."
