If 2007 was the summer of three-peats at the movies, 2008 may be the year of 3D. Beowulf got us started with it's recent 3D release, and in the coming year U2 and Tim Burton have plans to go 3D, and there's rumors that we might see Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker using the force in three dimensions. Of course, it's not just technology that will be the next big thing in movies this year, the writer's strike may have a big impact on the box office, if not this year then likely in 2009 if this drags on much longer. So tell us, what are you looking forward to at the movies this year? A specific actor, or movie, is it the technology, or something else?
