Baz Luhrmann to Shoot Great Gatsby in 3-D?

Oliver Stone and Baz Luhrmann at CES 2011

Baz Luhrmann is thinking about shooting The Great Gatsby in 3-D.

The Australian director - who is known for theatrical films such as Moulin Rouge - said he has "workshopped" the idea to bring F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel to life in multiple dimensions.

He revealed the possible plan while speaking in Las Vegas about technology in film at the Consumer Electronics Show alongside fellow directors Michael Mann and Oliver Stone. Baz's version of the The Great Gatsby is set to star Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan. At the show he admitted he wasn't surprised that there some scepticism about the widespread adoption of 3-D, as it was first used with "gags" before moving on to "spectacle and drama" in Avatar - but said he thinks it can be used in "poetic cinema" - films similar to his adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.

How to buy a Blu-ray player

buy a blu-ray player

The benefits of Blu-ray are crystal clear: Video from traditional DVDs contains fewer than 350,000 pixels, while 1080p HD video packs more than two million, which translates to sublime, high-resolution detail. If you want to make the most of your 1080p HDTV, you should upgrade to a Blu-ray player.

And there's never been a better time to do it. The technology has matured, and the current crop of Blu-ray players offer stellar HD picture quality, fast disc-handling, and extras like integrated Wi-Fi, audio and video streaming, and in the case of Sony's Internet TV Blu-ray Player, Google TV, which brings Web search and other Internet features right to your HDTV.

These days you can find a very solid, well-rounded player for less than $200 if you do some smart online shopping. Still, there are a lot of choices out there. Here's what you need to consider when choosing the right Blu-ray player:
