Clash of the Titans, Harry Potter to be released in 3D

source: slashfilm.com

The worst kept secret in Hollywood has been confirmed. Warner Bros will release Clash of the Titans and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 in 3D.

Desperate to get some of that sweet Avatar coin, WB commissioned a 3D conversion test of Clash of the Titans late last year. They must have been happy with the results, because the film’s release was delayed an entire week (!) to accommodate a full conversion.

Clash of the Titans will now hit cinemas worldwide on April 2nd, 2010, in both 3D and 2D.

In their press release, WB also confirmed the 3D conversion of other 2010 releases, including:

Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (July)
Guardians of Ga’Hoole (September)
Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 1 (November)

No doubt WB will soon announce their plans to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in 3D also.

Leading the conversion is Prime Focus, one of the visual effects vendors that worked on Avatar. Of the sci-fi epic’s $2.075 billion gross, nearly 81% came from 3D screenings.

Discuss: 3D – is this a fad or here to stay?
