Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Clash of the Titans are the next big movies going the 3-D route. While I don’t mind the 3-D glasses and paying the extra money for movies worth seeing, I foresee studios over-doing it just to climb onto that 3-D Avatar train. “Hey, Avatar beat Titanic because of 3-D sales, let’s do it too!” Harry Potter movie in 3-D sounds awesome though, but call me skeptical about this whole 3-D experience stuff. What’s next, seeing every movie in 3-D just because every filmmaker has the ability too? I hope we don’t see Sex and the City 2 in 3-D. Nothing like seeing Samantha’s knee knockers protruding off the screen.
Warner Bros. will release the next two “Harry Potter” films in 3D, a move underscoring the post-“Avatar” rush for extra-dimensional boxoffice.
Studios executives on lots around town have been scrutinizing film slates for opportunities to expand forays into 3D releasing. Warners has been testing footage from its upcoming “Clash of the Titans” — converted into 3D by an outside vendor — and the tests have gone so well that execs have decided to release not only “Titans” but also the two-part “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” in 3D.
