Spy Kids 3-D to Pop Out on Video

If you’ve ever rented or tuned into a TV broadcast of Jaws 3-D, Friday the 13th Part 3 or even Amityville 3-D: The Demon, you know what a bummer it is to see cool 3D gags fall flat on the TV screen. While most stereoscopic movies are distributed on video as 2D versions, Dimension Home Video will offer both 2D and 3D versions of Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over when it debuts on DVD and VHS on Feb. 24, 2004.

The DVD version of director Robert Rodriguez’s latest adventure/comedy will come complete with four pairs of special viewing glasses that will bring the special effects out of the screen and in your face. The double-disc set will also include director commentary, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a multi-angle look at the stunt work, an examination of the effects, set-top game, Rodriguez’s Ten Minute Film School and more.

In Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, Juni (Daryl Sabara) must save his sister Carmen (Alexa Vega) who is being held captive inside a video game controlled by an evil toymaker (Sylvester Stallone) who wants to take over the world. Also getting into the act again are mom (Carla Gugino), dad (Antonio Banderas) and grandma and grandpa (Ricardo Montalban and Holland Taylor).

Rodriguez served as visual effects director, along with Daniel Leduc, under his effects banner Troublemaker Digital. Also contributing effects work are Hybride, ComputerCafé, The Orphanage, Janimation, CIS and KNB EFX Group.

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over will retail for the suggested price of $29.99 DVD and $24.99 VHS.
