Deathly Hallows will NOT be in 3D at release

by on Oct.08, 2010, under Movies

If you were hoping to see a complete 3D Harry Potter film – you’re going to wait longer. Warner Bros. announced today that when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 is released on November 19th, it will only be in 2D – because the 3D conversion will not be completed in time and still meet the “highest standards of quality”. No word about a later release, or what will happen with Part 2.

    And the crowd gives a resounding cheer because they don’t like 3D anyway…

    I’m not terribly impressed by “3D conversions” vs. purpose-filmed 3D. The conversions may look neat but not terribly realistic – they tend to over-emphasize depth far beyond true vision. The short segments they did for Phoenix weren’t bad, but can’t imagine the whole film that way.

    But then with filmed 3D, there is too much of a tendency to add gimmicks – I feel like I’m in the scene from MuppetVision 4D with them sticking things out of the screen.

    Ironically, I just got back from Legend of the Guardians in 3D. Very well done, actually. There were a few gimmicky shots, but not obtrusively so.

    Tolkien-esque story, I thought.
