Titans and Potter films to be released in 3D!

01.26.2010

You know those 3D tests we told you about earlier this week that would decide whether CLASH OF THE TITANS would be coming at you in an extra dimension this March? Well they apparently went so well they've officially decided to not only make CLASH a 3D release but they're also going to release HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS (Parts 1 and 2) in 3D as well! (I'm using an exclamation point less because I'm excited and more because I'm just a little surprised!!)

The Hollywood Reporter says that Warner Bros. refused to comment on the news but an official release on CLASH is expected to come later this week. The studio will incur about $5 million in extra charges for each film to have it converted and have the costs of the 3D glasses covered. While it was originally reported that making the original release date of March 26 wasn't going to be a problem, it apparently was a little bit of a problem as they've decided to push back the release to April 2. The HARRY POTTER films will retain their original release dates of November 19th and July 15, 2011.

Besides hooking us in for a couple extra bucks, I'm not sure what 3D will add to either of these movies. But, of course, I'll be the sucker going to see it in 3D. Will you pay the extra cash to see a movie that's been upconverted to 3D?

Extra Tidbit: Still a little curious as to why Paramount/Marvel decided to not go 3D for IRON MAN 2...

No 3D

Avatar was one thing, it was made over years for the purpose of 3D. Clash wasnt and the effects from it will be ok but not great bc it wasnt meant for 3D. This is all about extra $3 to get out of your pocket. Thats all they want for all movies to be made and shown in 3D so they can charge extra. I will not be seeing any of these in 3D.

To the Potter films...

NO NO NO FUCKING NO. Urg, these films make money anyway. 3D sucks balls, and I dunno how it plays in the States, but cinemas in the UK tend to phase out the 2D version after a few weeks and only show it in 3D, which is no fucking good for repeat viewings in my eyes- don't wanna pay extra for something that just fucking annoys me. That's why I'm waiting for the blu-ray before I see Avatar again.

When moviesa are produced with 3-D in mind like AVATAR, BEOWULF and A CHISTMAS CAROL, they look stupendous. But TITANS and POTTER were shot on film and are being upconverted to 3-D without the original intent of doing so. After seeing the TOY STORY double-feature remastered in 3-D last fall I wasn't impressed with the remastering, hanece I don't hink these 2 films are going to look all that better.

Like they won't release 2D versions too

At least in my neck of the woods. Which is good, since I know plenty of people who can't see 3D due to various eye conditions.

3D is overused and annoying!

The studios are only doing it because it will make them more money. Sadly people will see it in 3D.........I won't.

Hopefully the last two Harry Potter movies wont hold back all the action this time. All the movies in the franchise before it did not have a lot of action in them and I have felt underwhelmed by all of them because of it.

God help you Warner Brothers if you try and force Nolan to make his third batman film in 3D. Because I know you are already thinking about it. Just Don't.

I probably wouldn't pay to see this in 3-d. But why are people mad? There's no golden rule that says if a movie is dropped in 3D you HAVE to watch it. Just don't see it. I can't understand this RAGE.

Now clash of the titans in 3d. AWW YEEEAH.

NO INTEREST

3-D is a fad...yet again...sure, it's the "new way"...but the "new way" is the old way done again...glasses on yer face. Who cares?

Gimme a movie that's a movie and don't try to win bonus points by putting crappy 3D on it!

Have never seen a film in 3D that wasn't shot in 3D. Interested in seeing the results.

meh

i dont hate 3d and i thought it was amazing for the first 10 minutes of my first experience with it but then i found myself annoyed with the glasses and just wanted to chuck the damn things.. Most directors are a bunch of goofs who will just throw yoyo's and dumb shyt off the screen expecting us to giggle and blow a load in our pants over something that only a 5 year old would get excited about lol. I can live with it if it's only parts of the movie you have to wear the glasses for, until the

Avatar didn't look good in 3d though. You could barely tell it was 3D which goes to show how much a respected director can be praised for going nothing. He's a glorified popcorn flick maker. If it was Roland Emerich or Michael Bay making Avatar, it would have been buried.

Did you actually open your eyes while the movie was playing? If you weren't wowed by the visuals in Avatar, I just assume you're lying and didn't actually watch it.

What's with the hate?

Can you blame movie companies for catering to a market? If people want to see 3D movies, then the studios have to make them. Case closed. It's not a gimmick, just another way to enjoy cinema.

Meh, doesn't bother me. I'll probably pay the extra $2 bucks to see them in 3D...why? Because I dig the "gimmick." Movies like Clash of the Titans are about eye-candy, and I happen to like the element 3D brings to "eye-candy" movies. Those who don't dig it (which I completely understand) can still see these in 2D, so what's the big deal?

3D is beyond idiotic. As long as 2D is never phased out, I'll keep going to the cinema. As for every other Joblo article reporting on "3D!" that can stop already.

Enough Already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alright Clash of the Titans may be cool in 3D, but I really don't want to see Harry Potter in 3D, simply because the other films haven't been done that way, and I really just want to see the whole HP series come to a nice non three-dimensional end.

COOL!

It's a 3D revolution! and ofcourse I'm psyced to see these films in 3D!

tidbit: the reason why IRON MAN 2 isn't gonna be in 3D is probably because they want to tie in the whole 3 thing with the third film, both in number and format.

Not 3D

The reason Avatar looks sweet in 3D is because they filmed it in 3D, these movies are just being converted...thus they won't look as good...bad idea

I agree this just smells like a bad excuse to raise ticket prices for no reason. I seriously doubt these films were intended for 3d.

I don't think I'll have a choice if I want to see it, but I do think I'd prefer to see Clash in 3D, it looks like the 3D could actually compliment it, then again, Avatar looked like it might work well in 3D and the #d there did virtually nothing to it.

No thanks.

I've decided to give my money this year to movies that don't rely on a gimmick that went out in the 1950s and that costs an extra $3 a ticket in a drive to get around raising ticket prices further without justification. But if you feel like you're the sheep that needs to graze in that field, more power to you.
