Word has come directly from WB today, that the first part of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film will be released in 3D come its arrival in theaters this November. The release of a 3D "Deathly Hallows" will appear along side a standard 2D version in theaters as well. This confirmation came after many rumors
circulating around the internet about a possible 3D release for both films. In a press release, WB noted, in part:
In making the announcement, Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, said, “We are experienced and have been successful in the conversion of 2D to 3D going back to such hits as ‘The Polar Express,’ select scenes in ‘Superman Returns’ and the last two Harry Potter films.”
Fellman continued, “We are confident in the constantly evolving 3D technology, and the results for ‘Clash of the Titans’ will be presented onscreen with the highest-quality images available today. Based on our track record, we know that audiences are embracing the RealD and IMAX experiences, and we see many opportunities on our film slate to provide moviegoers with these great options at the multiplex.”
Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Picture Group, said, “We’re excited about 3D and look forward to bringing a rich, involving visual experience to audiences around the world.”
Additional titles on Warner Bros. Pictures’ 2010 film slate that will be released in 3D (in addition to 2D) include “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” (July), “Guardians of Ga’Hoole” (September) and “Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, Part 1” (November).
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One" is set for release on November 19, 2010.
@lolalu same goes to me. I wish I could watch it on IMAX but… this 3D thing will maybe ruin things… But anyway, I guess we can give it a shot, right? Watch it once on IMAX 3D and if it sucks, watch it next time on a regular theater. We all know we’ll be watching it more than once, right? Maybe 10 times for me will be enough…
Great : (
I hate 3D movies. Unless you have great seats it always looks off, and the glasses darken the picture too much. And now I won’t be able to see it in IMAX or on a big screen because all the IMAX’s will be in 3D. Bummed…
Just because it worked for Avatar doesn’t mean it works for HP. Especially if it’s retro-fitted 3D. On a good movie, that’s like slapping flame designs onto an eames chair.
The whole 3D new tech shin-ding was the whole selling point of Avatar. Know what Harry Potter’s selling point is? Harry Potter.
Then there are those of us who cannot see 3-D because of our lousy eyesight. For those of you who can, though, enjoy.
3-D just doesn’t interest me at all. Yeah sure, the visual effects are going to be amazing but HP in 3-D won’t compare to Avatar because it wasn’t filmed to be 3-D and that’s going to ruin it. I’m just glad that there will be a 2-D screening too, my eyes can’t take the 3-D graphics.
Ok, firstly those of you who are complaining about it… why? It’s in 2D as well, there’s just a 3D version should anyone like to watch it in 3D. I think it’ll be great.
CassandraM: Why don’t you wear the 3D glasses over your glasses if you have bad eyesight? I’ve done it; it wasn’t the most comfortable thing in the world, but I got used to it.
