Warner Brothers To Release Next Two Harry Potter Movies in 3D
Warner Brothers has announced that they will release the next two Harry Potter movies in 3D. This includes the upcoming “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows.” The company also announced that they will release “Clash of the Titans” in 3D.
Conversion expenses have been coming down, so each film will cost just $5 million to change into 3D. Warners also will absorb an additional $5 million expense per pic to pay for 3D glasses for exhibitors handling the movies.
“Titans” will be released on April 2. “Deathly Hallows: Part I” is set to open Nov. 19, and “Part II” is slotted for July 15, 2011.
HIMag’s Take: Looks like all of the studios are lusting after the Avatar in 3D box office numbers. The interesting question is if movie-goers are hungry for the 3D experience or if James Cameron just provided them with something so visually spectacular that it cannot be duplicated. Only time will tell.
