Warner Bros. is trying to hop on the 3D bandwagon by releasing the two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 3D, reports Heat Vision Blog.

This news comes on the heels of a recent rumor that WB is also debating converting the upcoming Clash of the Titans remake to 3D, a decision that is expected to be finalized by week’s end.

So let’s get down to the ins and outs of all this, shall we?

James Cameron has successfully ushered in the official “era of 3D cinema” thanks to Avatar‘s current status as the top-grossing film of all time. Now every blockbuster movie is being considered for 3D and that trend is unlikely to alter course anytime soon.

Deathly Hallows, it must be understood, is being considered for conversion into 3D – it will not be filmed with 3D cameras as Avatar was. The 3D conversion process is becoming more and more affordable; Heat Vision Blog has the expense tagged at $5 million for movie conversion and $5 million for the glasses, per pic. The returns on the higher ticket prices for 3D films can be well worth the trouble (as Avatar has proven).

Clash of Titans would also be a 3D convert (it was also not filmed in 3D) and its release date would likely be pushed back to accommodate the change (only about a week or so, though, no worries). While people are currently awed by the Avatar experience (the ones not hating, at least) already a faction of “3D purists” are decrying films that are retroactively trying to go 3D (myself included). The reason? Unless a film is conceived in 3D from the outset (like Avatar or Pixar’s Up) the technique is often used as a gimmick that does little to enhance the film (or justify the hiked ticket price).

So what do you think about seeing Deathly Hallows converted to 3D? Yes? No? Maybe so?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I hits theaters on November 19, 2010; Part II will be released on July 15, 2011. We’ll keep you updated on what happens with Clash of the Titans.

  1. You people are making to big a deal of this. With newer technology coming out 3D has allready started to be mastered and science and technology have allready started working on 4D which is the new Dimension humanity is moving in. Im sure you will have the choice to watch in 3D or to not. There are billions of people in the world, and not every one of those billions think alike.

  2. yeah it will be cool since its thed last movie they should give it a little different from the other movies if avatar was hit harry potter would make vatar look like s…

  3. it is OK with me as long as
    when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows get's realest on DVD they have one side of the DVD with out 3d fetchers and the other side with 3d fetchers

  4. no. plain and simple. 3-d has ruined everything.

  5. 790, the war against 3d is over. sweet.

  6. If Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was filmed in 2D and then converted to 3D, then under no circumstances will I see the 3D version. 2D for me all the way. 3D conversion is a distracting gimmick.

    • I fully agree with Chuck. Just watched Thor – converted to 3D- the picture was worse than a B movie. W sat through Clash of the Titans and wished we hadn’t. We probably will not go to the Deathly Hallows 2 because of the conversion. It is not worth the squinting.
      Who can we complain to…?

  7. looks like WB is gonna change, they finally realized that this movie worth two parts and yes, they should provide it with 3d
