Starting in 2009, all films will incorporate advanced three dimensional technology from the outset of production, Feldman said.
"Three-D, when done well, is a more immersive experience," Feldman said. "Most people are more familiar with the gimmicky nature of 3D. Here we're talking about a totally immersive experience."
Though not all theaters are equipped to show films in stereoscopic 3D, industry officials expect there to be at least several thousand theaters with the right equipment by 2009, Feldman said.
DreamWorks' decision to use stereoscopic 3D aims to make the movie-going experience "more special," Feldman said.
Local postal service gets a mail makeover
The United States Postal Service will begin picking up mail from their blue collection boxes in Glendale at 3 p.m. instead of 4 p.m. on Monday. The drop off deadline for priority mail at local post offices will also be changed from 5:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The schedule changes are consistent with changes being implemented statewide and are intended to increase efficiency and ensure that more mail is delivered on time, said Richard Maher, U.S. Postal Service spokesman.
"[The changes] are basically to get the mail to the plant earlier, so it can get on the planes and be distributed more efficiently," Maher said. "It's important for our customers to receive their mail on time and this is intended to make that happen."
Traffic congestion throughout the region has long made it difficult for U.S. Postal Service transportation vehicles to deliver mail from local branches to the district plant on time, Maher said.
After the changes are implemented, any of the five Glendale post offices will still accept non-priority outgoing mail delivered in person up until 7 p.m., Maher said.
