Warner Brothers announced today that they won’t be releasing a 3D version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows –Part 1. Some industry wags think this is due to the poor reaction to the studio’s post production conversion of Clash of the Titans. The studio claims:
We will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality… We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate “Harry Potter” experience.
But we think it’s because the film would have been hampered with the awkward title of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1: 3D.
