OMG! Watch Porn In 3D in MOVIE THEATERS Saturday, 04.23.2011, 02:48pm (GMT-5)
3D movies have become a norm and a MUST if you want your movie to
succeed in movie theaters. Since Avatar broke the record, many movies
are following it footstep, including this porn movie, wait.... WHAT?
This movie, Sex and Zen 3D has taken the world cinema by storm, it has become the first 3D porn movie to shown in movie theaters. Many tourists flocked the movie theaters in Hong Kong to check out this movie and what the buzz was all about.
It's no secret that porn industries had gone as far as going HD and everything, and porn goes 3D was going to happen anyways. The question was when and where. I actually thought Japan was going to be the first to produce these kind of movies, since Japanese porn movies are all over the world and among the most downloaded online.
Based on a classic Chinese erotic story, the film
follows a strapping young man as he discovers a royal world of "orgies,
swinging and some very graphic sex scenes"
film, to be released in May 2011, will be marketed in Japan,
Korea, Southeast Asia and some pay-per-view TV channels in Hong Kong- China itself will likely be off limits due to censorship, and for reason I will be telling you below.People's Republic of China is a far more sexually repressive country and society than Hong Kong (even though officially Hong Kong is part of China, the people still regard themselves as different institution).
Whilst Hong Kong enjoys Western standards of sexual openness, in
China, even the possession of porn can give you all kind of serious troubles with
the Communist authorities.
â3D Sex and Zenâ is based on ancient Chinese story, and is being
hailed as the worldâs first 3D porn film â or at least since 3D
exploded last year. The film stars Yukiko Suo and Saori Hara.
My question is more like how comfortable it is to watch porn in 3D, because even watching movies like Avatar or How To Train Your Dragon, it was not the best experience wearing those uncomfortable 3D glasses, let alone watching porn with all the close ups, moaning etc
And this won't be the last 3D porn we'll be seeing, this is just the beginning for 3D sex flicks era.
is reportedly working on a 3-D porno-spoof of James Cameron's mega
blockbuster "Avatar", while Italian director Tinto Brass plans to make a
3D version of his 1979 erotic film "Caligula".
Here is the interview with Edmund Lee, the director of this movie:
"As hard as this might be to believe, sex is often best experienced in
person. That, however, isnât exactly stopping any Hongkonger from
downloading Japanese porn, at will. But, in what he frankly admits to
being âan extremely risky projectâ, Stephen Shiu Yeuk-yuen is attempting
the unprecedented: heâs persuading us that even high-quality, lowbrow
smut should function as part of the capitalist society. By hiring porn
stars that we can watch for free, the writer and producer of 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is challenging us to fork out the money to buy tickets so we can see them faking it.
More unfathomable still, as it turns out, is that Shiu may have
gotten it spot-on. âFor a time, thereâs [been] no reason to go to the
cinemas [to watch a skin flick] as thereâs free porn readily available
online,â says the veteran filmmaker. âBut this 3D thing has changed the
whole equation, because people have to come to the theatres to get the
full visual impact. The voyeuristic feel is so damn amazing now. Youâre
much more immersed as you feel like youâre watching by the bedside.â
Then again, common sense fades when people start to see things in,
well, â3Dâ. After all, if theyâre lining up to witness some weird blue
creatures almost having sex (no, weâre not referring to The Smurfs
â we havenât watched that one yet), there really isnât a good reason
that they shouldnât be flocking to see Shiuâs dirty epic too. And so it
has been proven the case already: a month before its official release
here, 3D Sex and Zen has been sold to countries as conservative
as India and Singapore (both of which will screen a further censored
version), and countless tourist groups from the Mainland â where
pornography is publicly banned â have signed up to catch the filmâs
theatrical run in Hong Kong.
Shiu began production of his first Sex and Zen movie â starring the likes of Amy Yip and Elvis Tsui â back in 1989. Adapted from the 17th century erotic novella The Carnal Prayer Mat,
a story of love and karma and sexual organ transplant, that film looked
all set to bomb when it screened to a less-than-half-full audience at
its first midnight test screening in 1991. With his marketing
masterstroke, however, Shiu told his director to cut out half an hour
from the film, and to insert a naked man into the promotional poster,
which originally only featured two women, âa misleading sign that this
was a lesbian filmâ, notes Shiu. The repackaged movie would soon turn
into box office gold, spawning two unrelated âsequelsâ by the equally
opportunistic director Wong Jing in the process. Itâs now considered a
classic in Hong Kong and a cult favourite around the world.
Ditching the first movieâs preoccupations with karma, the new 3D
movie instead turns its focus to the meaning of true love. According to
the filmâs leading man Hiro Hayama, a Japanese actor who has been
working in the Chinese language film industry for some time, he was
picked by the producers precisely because of his heartthrob image in the
2010 rom-com Break Up Club. Being a stranger to Chinese culture, Hayama was shocked when he checked out 1991âs Sex and Zen
as part of his professional due diligence. âAfter I watched the DVD, I
thought to myself: I must say no [to the offer]!â he says, alternating
between a boyish grin and embarrassed chuckle. âThis is not a love story
at all!â He exclaims. âThis is totally a porno!â
It is, alas, not just another porno: Shiu was one of the most
high-profile producers of sleazy B-movies before he left the industry in
1993, and heâs also bringing his distinguished taste back this time. âI
love violence because I love to shock,â he says. âI really
love this stuff onscreen.â The writer-producer goes on to describe two
disturbing sequences in the new movie: one of the protagonist scratching
maggots from the exposed bones of his injured leg; another of a
medieval torture tool, where a woman is forced to sit on an iron lotus
that subsequently opens inside her. And then, Shiu breaks into gleeful â
and shall we say, rather evil â laughter. âYou can imagine how painful
that is! Whenever I have these awesome ideas Iâd shoot them first no
matter what. The censors can wait.â
3D Sex and Zen may end up making a truckload of money, but
the film is unlikely to make history anytime soon. When I have a quiet
moment with Vonnie Lui â no stranger to racy Category III movies, and
the present filmâs highest profile local actress â she laughs off,
almost too nonchalantly, the producersâ claims that this is âthe worldâs
first 3D erotic movieâ. âYou know, every movie out there is calling
itself a 3D movie these days,â she says, pretty much shouting out loud
whatâs on our mind. âEven up to this point, I still donât understand why
itâs said to be the first one.â Not that many would care. (interview source)"
So, what do you think? would you go to movie theater with your wife or girlfriend to watch this porn? in 3D?
