Will Sex and Zen save 3D cinema…?

That’s what Guardian journalist Stuart Heritage wonders in an editorial, in light of the UK release of 3D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy on 2 September, distributed by Metronome in key cities around the UK.

(Our review of the original Sex And Zen is one of our most popular pages, though somehow I don’t think most readers get what they were looking for… sorry, it’s not that sort of site!)

The film has out-grossed Avatar and Titanic in Hong Kong, and made over a million dollars on it’s Australian release, despite only being shown on six screens. Perhaps as enthralled by 3D as we are here at easternKicks.com, Stuart surmises that rather than invest in Glee Live! In 3D! or even Tintin, if producers really want audiences to get excited about 3D  it should involve a lot more animal penises…

(Read it and you’ll understand!)

…he might be right!!!
