The 3-D craze won’t die, and it’s once again taking Harry Potter under its wing. According to THR, the final two films in the Potter franchise, The Deathly Hallows will be converted to 3-D, and they’re bringing Clash of the Titans with them. Just last week there was some buzz stating that the upcoming Sam Worthington film would be given a last minute upgrade in the visual department, and it sounds like it’s true.
First off, Warner Bros did some conversion tests on Clash of the Titans last week to see if it would be worth the extra money to switch it over to 3-D. The studio was obviously pleased with the results because we’re once again going to see Worthington in an extra dimension when the film hits theaters this spring. The studio refuses to give an official confirmation, but the announcement is expected sometime this week.
As for Harry Potter, he’s no 3-D rookie so the fact that both parts of the Deathly Hallows arc will be released in the format isn’t that shocking. With both Titans and Potter, Warners will have to cough up an extra 5 million dollars per movie to pay for the 3-D conversion.
And in related news, the studio has also decided to push back the release date of Titans a couple of weeks to April 2, 2010, while Deathly Hallows: Part I is set for release on November 19th, and Part II is slotted for July 15, 2011.
What do you think about all three films being converted to 3-D? Are you angry about the Clash of the Titans release change?
