Movie audiences will be treated to a new process that will add scents to the Irish hunk's latest movie, "The New World."
NTT Communications will synchronize seven different odors to parts of the flick in which Farrell plays colonial leader John Smith.
A floral scent will accompany a love scene, and a mix of peppermint and rosemary will be emitted during a tear-jerking scene.
I'm really not sure I'd want smells forced on me during a movie. I can't really explain why but it would bring the whole thing from being a window on another world (with video and sound) to that movie world actually seeping through into reality.
That might sound cool, but IMO it's a blessing that we don't have to smell love scenes in the theatres. I prefer the smell of popcorn to remind me that, no, it isn't actually real.
