Will The Legacy of ‘Avatar’ Include 3-D Porn?

You had to know it was coming.

Last year at the Cannes Film Festival, there was an announcement from Gaspar Noe that he had planned to make a “joyful porn movie – a joyful movie with explicit sex.” This would be an about face from the film that made him notorious – the controversial and graphic Irreversible, which featured a long, protracted and horrifying rape scene. Now, in the wake of the runaway success of the 3-D epic Avatar, it’s not surprising that word has just come out that Noe is planning to shoot this “pornographic melodrama” – which has also been termed an “apologia for vice” – in 3-D as well.

So the question is: are you ready for porn in 3-D, or are you afraid of what exactly might seem like it’s coming right at you?
