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.
Here’s why I’m mad. They have NOT earned the right to do it in 3D. That is something that takes a lot of time to do. The past films have not been good enough in the editing, dialogue, and acting. They need to focus on making a solid good film first before they focus on bonus things. I don’t care how it looks visually, I just want a great film for once! And apparantly they have enough time to make it a good film since they have the time to do the 3D. It’s just frustrating, i’m frustrated with the direction movies are going. Avatar is so popular but it is really a crap movie. I don’t care how pretty it is, I want a good story, good acting, good characters, and a good screenplay.
