Martin Scorsese has vowed to make all his future films in 3D.

The veteran director released his first 3D movie Hugo last year, and it went on to win a raft of technical Oscars. And now he says he will continue to embrace the medium.

Speaking at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Scorsese said: "I would have practically done all my films in 3D... There is something that 3D gives to the picture that takes you into another land and you stay there and it's a good place to be.

"It's like seeing a moving sculpture of the actor. It’s almost like a combination of the theatre and film combined and it immerses you in the story more. I saw audiences care about the people more."

However, he did address the problem of brightness in 3D cinema, following the demonstration of new laser-illuminated technology, saying: "If [cinema screens] are too dark and you can't see, why should [audiences] come back and watch another 3D film? We have to work together and show [movies] in the best possible light."

Scorsese's next project will be Wolf Of Wall Street, which will reunite him with The Aviator and Gangs Of New York star Leonardo DiCaprio. Watch a clip from Hugo below.
