Rumor: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D?
January 26, 2010, 02:42 PM
Reports are now making their way around the internet regarding rumors that the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films are set appear in 3D upon their theatrical release. A report originating on the Hollywood Reporter Heat Vision Blog reports that following early 3D conversion tests of the film "Clash of the Titans" by Warner Bros., the studio has decided to release "two-part "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D." This report of a 3D "Deathly Hallows" comes online despite confirmation by WB, but notes that it believes "but an announcement [regarding its 3D release] on "Titans" is expected by week’s end, and official word on the "Potter"pics surely will follow." The blog goes on to say that "Conversion expenses have been coming down, so each film will cost just $5 million to convert into 3D."
While this is very much an exciting possibility, until official word comes from Warner Bros., this news remains in the rumor category.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One" is set for release on November 19, 2010, while "Part Two" is will hit theaters on July 15, 2011.
Thanks to Oli!
whether it’s 3D or not it doesnt matter to me :) but frick just imagine that battle at the end in 3d! that will be epic!!!! the other parts, i dont care if they are just 2D . omg i am so excited for DH but the release is so far away…. WHYYYYYY. :(
YodatheHobbit, is right. Scenes from the past two films have been in 3-D, so I’m not surprised they would do it again. The question is whether or not the whole film will be converted (and the same can be asked for Clash of the Titans). I hope that only parts of the film will be in 3-D. In fact, I’m only interested in seeing the battle in 3-D.
Uggg – If they do it in 3D I hope the option is there to see it in 2D. I’m a bit tired of everything being 3d now. I don’t think it’s necessarily “awesome.” Animated films, like Avatar are pretty good in 3D, but no matter how good they think the technology looks – the live action parts don’t seem as rich or real to me. Perhaps it’s the way I see things. I’m actually one of the many who happen to have nausea problems with 3D – I don’t want this movie ruined for me!
I don’t know…I don’t really like 3D because it hurts my eyes and it’s hard for me to see(I wear regular eyeglasses), but HP in 3D might be cool…of course, it is currently just a rumor, we’ll have to wait and see!
