In case you didn't get the memo the first 17 times it was announced, Warner Bros. decided to make it official…again…by releasing a press release informing us of their plans to not only release Clash of the Titans in 3D, but also Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (July), Guardians of Ga'Hoole (September) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I (November). We already knew about Titans and Potter, but the other two films are new announcements. Hey, at least some of this news is actually new!
Warner Bros. Goes 3D, 'Transformers 3' to Follow?
Also, in an effort to find a way to compare Clash of the Titans with Avatar, the press release also says that Warner Bros. 3D partner on Titans, Prime Focus, was also one of the visual effects vendors on Avatar. Still, Titans was converted to 3D, and not filmed in 3D, so while I'm sure the experience will be cool, it probably won't come close to what you saw with Avatar. But I guess we'll see when the film hits theaters on April 2nd.
In other 3D-related news, there's now talk that Transformers 3 will either be filmed in 3D or converted to 3D as well. Though Michael Bay has always said he was against the technology (partly because it doesn't mix well with his on-the-fly shooting style), one imagines Paramount is pushing hard to incorporate 3D into the third installment in some way. Filming it in 3D would take a long time, and they already announced a Summer 2011 release date, so chances are they'll either push the film back to 2012 or just convert it to 3D like they're doing with Clash of the Titans.
What do you think? Would a film like Transformers work in 3D?
