Tim Burton thinks Hollywood will cannibalise 3D technology.

The director's most recent big screen offering Alice in Wonderland is in 3D and although he is pleased with the results he is predicting a host of bad three dimensional movies in the coming months.

He said: "It's true that 3D is being hyped at the moment. It was different when we started working on Alice in Wonderland a few years ago. I'm glad I started using it early on and wasn't forced to shoot a film in 3D at all costs, because everyone's doing it now. We're surely going to see a lot of bad 3D films in the near future, because Hollywood cannibalises every recipe for success. That's how the industry works."

Despite his concerns at 3D being overused, Tim finds the technology thrilling.

He added: "It's a great thing when you use it as a technical tool and not as a wonder weapon."
