Tim Burton thinks Hollywood will cannibalise 3-D technology.

The director's most recent big screen offering 'Alice in Wonderland' is in 3-D 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 3-D 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 3-D at all costs, because everyone's doing it now. We're surely going to see a lot of bad 3-D films in the near future, because Hollywood cannibalises every recipe for success. That's how the industry works."

Despite his concerns at 3-D 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."
