Last week it was revealed that Warner Bros was bitten by the 3D bug, and were looking to convert several of their pending releases into the format. At the time they refused to give an official confirmation, but the cat is finally out of the bag. Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution at the studio released a statement confirming their upcoming 3D slate, and guess who made the list?
Clash of the Titans will be in 3D after the studio viewed the final results of a conversion test they ran last week. They must have been pleased with what they saw, because the 3D conversion process has caused the studio to push the release date back from March 26th to April 2nd. Fellman states that they’ve been successful on more than one occasion when it comes to converting 2D films, using Superman Returns and the last two Harry Potter‘s as examples.
Speaking of Potter the final installment of The Deathly Hallows Part I will be released in 3D on November 19th, with Part 2 hitting theaters on July 15, 2011. Other 3D releases include Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore on July 30th and Zack Snyder’s Guardians of Ga’Hoole on September 24th.
We all know that Sam Worthington looks good in 3D, but stop forcing me to wait for Clash of the Titans! All the other releases have plenty of time to get their stuff in order, but Clash is the one that’s been delayed. That week is going to feel like a lifetime.
What do you think about Warner Bros upcoming 3D slate? Should they have left Clash of the Titans alone?
