Movie streaming service Vudu has announced at CES it will start offering 3D movies in its catalog starting next week.

3D titles will be available at 480p, 720p and 1080p resolutions, with the minimum bandwidth requirements for 3D viewing being the same as for 2D.

To be able to watch the 3D content you'll need a compatible HDTV/Blu-ray player, which includes Sony's PlayStation 3 as well as devices from manufacturers such as Funai, LG, Mitsubishi, Philips, Samsung, Toshiba and Vizio.

Vudu hasn't announced the pricing or any of the titles it plans to make available in 3D.

Black Swan, Inception Land Top Movie Nods For Writers Guild Awards; Details
by Staff

Ballet drama Black Swan is set to face off against sci-fi thriller Inception and sporting drama The Fighter at the 2011 Writers Guild Awards after earning nominations in the top feature film category.

The movies will also battle family dramas The Kids Are All Right and Please Give for the best original screenplay prize.

Meanwhile, writer Aaron Sorkin earned a nomination for best adapted screenplay thanks to his work on Facebook.com-inspired film The Social Network. True Grit, 127 Hours, I Love You Phillip Morris and The Town will also compete in the category.

Earning nods for best documentary screenplay are Enemies of the People, Freedom Riders, Gasland, Inside Job, The Two Escobars and Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)?

The shortlists for the feature and documentary film categories were announced by the Writers Guild of America (wga) on 4 January (11).

The nominations do not necessarily point to Oscar nods as the Wga only recognises productions that are guild signatories or have been shot under agreements with an affiliated international guild.

Awards season favourites including The King's Speech, Toy Story 3, Winter's Bone, Blue Valentine and Another Year were ineligible for Wga honours this year (11).

The winners of the 2011 Writers Guild Awards will be unveiled at dual ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles on 5 February (11). (c) WENN
