Craig glad movie bosses refused 3D release of 'Cowboys and Aliens'

London, Aug 19 (ANI): Daniel Craig has revealed that he is delighted bosses of 'Cowboys and Aliens' refused to release the movie in 3D.

According to BBC's Newsbeat, the 'James Bond' star is convinced that traditional screening gives the film a "much richer feeling", certain that the 2D screening has benefited the blockbuster which has already earned more than 57.5 million pounds at the box office since its release last month.

Jon Farveau, the director of ' Cowboys and Aliens', decided against using the technique for the new sci-fi Western despite the rising trend of 3D films.

"It was a very deliberate decision and I'm glad we didn't (use 3D). We'd still be shooting it apart from anything else," the Daily Express quoted Craig, 43, as saying.

"Classic westerns are 2D... so you can stretch the image right across the screen and it looks like it should do.

"I think 3D works in animation and it gives me a headache to tell you the truth, I'm not a big fan of it. Maybe I'm a bit old-fashioned.

"When you watch a 3D live action movie you're forced to look at parts of the screen which you might not necessarily want to look at, but you have to because that's where the focus is.

"With 2D you get a much richer feeling and can look where you want basically. The whole thing with wearing the glasses is a bit silly," he added.ANI)
