Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Pt 1 – Now Not In 3D

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 1 - Now Not In 3D
Warner Bros. have announced in a statement that the first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will be going ahead into cinemas in 2D only.

The company’s statement reads:

“…we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window,” adding “despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey.”

In other words: “Clash of the Titans looked rubbish, it’s a lot of money to do, we really should have considered this three years ago. Dammit.”

While there’s still no word on what this means for a 3D version of Part 2, we now know that watching the film on November 19th will cost a couple of quid less.

Potter director David Yates said of the decision, “This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first.”

Maybe he doesn’t like lazy 3D conversions either.

    Those converting muggles should have worked harder. This wouldn’t have happened under Voldemort.

    “Lazy 3D conversions”?!?
    To the ignorant writer of this article I would like to offer the sincerest F**K YOU!!! I am a visual FX artist living and working in L.A… and while I have never personally worked for the Santa Monica sweatshop that Warner was using to convert Deathly Hollows, I am currently working with several of the extremely talented artists who came to their senses fled that place and the ridiculous deadlines imposed by Warner which was the REAL cause of this endeavor’s flop. Also, the fact that ‘Clash of the Titans’ was a joke is no excuse to marginalize and bash the art of stereoscopic conversion, which currently effectively employs many hard-working creative people!

    Lazy conversions? Surely its just as hard work (if not harder) to convert a film to 3D than it is to film it as such in the first place?

    Anyway, I think its more a case of Warner Bros wanting you to re-watch it again before part II (or as a double bill) when the conversion is finished.
