Clash of the Titans is gearing up to hit theaters this March, so why is Warner Bros. putting in a last ditch effort to make it in 3-D? Has a new law been passed that all of Sam Worthington‘s films have to be in the format? According to THR, the Louis Leterrier Greek epic is under review by the studio to get a 3-D makeover.
According to the trade, Warner Bros have issued some 3-D tests of the film, and will decide within the next 10 days if they want to revise the entire movie. They’ll screen the converted footage next week before making a final decision, and thanks to the box office success of James Cameron’s Avatar studio’s think action and 3-D graphics are a match made in heaven. I’m sure it also doesn’t hurt that Sam Worthington photographs well in the format.
Unlike Avatar, Clash of the Titans wasn’t shot in 3-D from the very beginning, which means the entire movie would have to be run through an intense conversion process to get the final look. The studio would also have to secure enough 3-D venues to take on the film, but their response to that roadblock is, “No problem.”
Clash of the Titans will be released on March 26th, and I think it’s so interesting how this movie can be converted over such a short period of time, while other films seem to take longer. What’s up with that?
