There was a 3D Entertainment Summit this weekend in Century City, which for the most part was a big circle jerk about how awesome 3-D is.  Some of the more substantive info was that making a 3-D picture costs the studio about $15 million extra, and that, according to CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Dreamworks plans to charge about $5 extra for tickets to 3-D features, beginning with Monsters vs. Aliens in 2009.

When reached for comment, one of the thugs in Back to the Future just chuckled to himself, muttering “Suckers.”  In related news, Gary Busey announced plans begin screening 4-D movies in his basement.  He says he’ll be charging $10 more for 4-D, but only until he pays off the tickle chair.
