Warner Bros. have announced in a statement that the first part of Harry Potter and the Film That Didnt Need Two Parts
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 two, 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.
