The next wave of 3-D post-LION KING: reissues/conversions of old movies.
(Didn't see COMIN' AT YA! when it came out in the early 80s, but Tony Anthony--perhaps best known to filmgoers of a certain age for being an imitation of the Sergio Leone-era Clint Eastwood in films like A STRANGER IN TOWN and BLINDMAN; the latter featured Ringo Starr playing a stereotyped Mexican bandit--wasn't known for women-in-non-sex-object-roles filmmaking.  COMIN' AT YA! was criticized for sexism on its original release; it's safe to expect more controversy with the reissue).
