‘Harry Potter 7’ won’t receive a 3D makeover

HollywoodNews.com: Were you looking forward to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I” in 3D?

Well, sorry, but it’s not happening. Warner Bros. changed its mind and won’t be releasing the seventh Potter film in the visual format.

Film will continue to play in IMAX, though in 2D conventional form. The studio said in a statement that they won’t be able to perform a 3D retrovert in time for its mid November release date.

In a statement given to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. said “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.”

Director David Yates adds: “This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first.”

Smart move on Warner Bros.’ part. The studio recently came under criticism from the industry for its shoddy 2D-to-3D upgrade of “Clash of the Titans.” That didn’t’ stop the film from earning just under $500 million at the global B.O. The filmmaking tech community is split on 2D to 3D conversions; some films such as “Alice in Wonderland,” were intentionally meant to be viewed in 3D despite being filmed with 2D cameras.
