3 Upcoming 3D Movies That Shouldn't Be In 3D

Blame it on Avatar, Alice In Wonderland or even Jackass 3D which enjoyed  a big 1st week in theaters—grossing 50 million dollars, because the Hollywood 3D craze shows no signs of slowing down. Even films not shot in 3D  are being converted, regardless if you’ve seen them already. (The two Star Wars trilogies were the latest announced to be getting a 3D upgrade.) But some film buffs and weary moviegoers are saying enough is enough, and think too many pics are entering the third dimension. Well, after taking a peak at a few movies coming down the 3D pipeline we may have to agree with that argument. In our opinion, here are three upcoming 3D films that should skip the specs and not be presented in 3D.—Ronke Idowu Reeves


1. Cleopatra in 3D

First in June 2010, there was a mild uproar over the reported casting of Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra. And now just four months later in October 2010, James Cameron has been rumored to be attached to the project as director with plans to bring it to the big screen in 3D. Period pieces can be a hard sell in Hollywood and if you’re building a blockbuster want to produce one in 3D it should be chock full of fight and battle scenes. Unfortunately, the tale of Cleopatra is more talk than action and has maybe two or three scenes to make it worth a 3D while (and these revolve around the Queen of the Nile making entrances into Rome and Tyre, Actium) But who knows? Maybe studio execs think audiences will line up to see Angie’s lips in 3D.  Here’s Angelina Jolie playing in another Queen in another period movie, Alexander. Now... just imagine scenes like this in 3D! Exciting? No.

Wendy Williams Reveals She's Been Living In A Sober House

It's no secret Wendy Williams has been dealing with multiple obstacles in her personal life, but that hasn't stopped her from sharing her truth. During the latest episode of The Wendy Williams Show, which aired on Tuesday (Mar. 19), the TV personality revealed that she has been staying at a sober house in New York due to her addiction to cocaine.

"I have been living in a sober house. … You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past," she shared with her audience. "I never went to a place to get treatment … there are people in your family, it might be you … I want you to know more of the story."

Prior to the big reveal, Williams said that her husband Kevin Hunter was the only person who knew she was seeking treatment. "Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here," she explained. "I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to a home that I live in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family."

Williams also noted that the facility has strict hours, locking its doors and cutting off the lights at 10 p.m. sharp. "I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you. So that is my truth," she added.

The 54-year-old took three-month hiatus from her self-titled show earlier this year, attributing her absence to a fractured shoulder and her ongoing battle with Graves' disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. She returned at the top of Mar. 2019.

Williams previously revealed that she was a "functioning addict" for nearly a decade of her career. While she is still trying to overcome some hurdles, she and her family created The Hunter Foundation, which works with private and public organizations to help families and individuals fight addiction.
