Rumor: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D?

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!

Speaking as someone who suffered through the last 3D revival and is barely making it through the current one, I have to say that live-action 3D has a major flaw: scenes end up being shot a certain way because of the 3D rather than the plot, characters, or mood, which results in pointless setpieces and dopey scare shots that only work to amp up the silly-factor and date the movie in the long run (especially when you view what was originally a 3D film on DVD years later…terrible…). 3D is great for building purely-animated worlds (e.g. Coraline and Avatar) or for IMAX movies that dip into non-human realms (e.g. Under the Sea and Wild Ocean), but it’s just plain silly when human characters are the driving force of the experience.

It could make things interesting to watch. I just hope it doesn’t subtract for the story itself.

I don’t think i would want to see it in 3D at first.
Sometimes, when stuff is in 3D, you can only think OH WOW! LOOK THAT’S IN 3D.
And I want to actually focus on the movie.

Still don’t understand all the hoopla about 3D. Big deal…just because of technology allowing it to happen, doesn’t mean that every movie should be 3D.
