“Fly Me” is opening on more than 1,000 screens in the United States, which according to Stassen makes it the biggest, purely 3-D release to date.
“It’s very exciting. We get to be on the forefront of this new filmmaking movement,” he said from Los Angeles, where he was helping promote the new movie.
“Fly Me to the Moon” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” which was released in both 2-D and 3-D versions, may be the first of many 3-D movies to come.
