Warner Bros. cancels 3D release of “Harry Potter” film

LONDON, ENGLAND — Citing an inability “to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality” in time for its announced November 19 scheduled release in both the US and UK, Warner Brothers has pulled the plug on the 3D release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part I”. The 3D release of Part II is still on track for July, 2011.

“We do not want to disappoint fans who have long anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey.

“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.”

The BBC reported the story here.

In other 3D news….“Jackass 3D” opened big yesterday with $20 million, on its way to around $40 million, which would be the highest grossing opening for a movie in October. That movie, unlike Harry Potter, was shot in 3D using the Phantom camera and has gotten great buzz from fans. 3D is back once again. Expect more of the same from “Saw 3D”, “Megamind”, and “Tron 2” and “Yogi Bear”. Yes, the tickets are expensive, but seeing is believing.

This from Boxoffice Mojo:

“Jackass 3-D had 2,452 locations presenting the picture in the 3D illusion, and the 3D showings accounted for close to 90 percent of business. That means the initial attendance gains over the previous Jackass movies were not commensurate with the gross gains, and that Jackass 3D did not break the Fall single-day attendance record.”

True, but it sounds like Harry Potter was going to be a converted job and they didn’t want to have another Clash of the Titans or Last Airbender on their hands which had minimal (if at all) 3-D effects. Jackass itself is a performance art spectacle, just what 3-D was made for (although I haven’t seen it yet).

Secondly I wish spammers would speak better English so it was less obvious that they were spammers. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to help this exiled billionaire in Niagara get back home to London….

Wehere to get designer clothing in china? People know that China is a country with low labour cost,so the cheap clothes is the main sourse in trade. These days,if you are going to order designer shoes discount shoes,or cheap gucci shoes wholesale nfl jerseys ,you can get to online wholesale store such as icheapwholesale. They provide customers with uggs online and some fashion accessories such as mac cosmetics,designer sunglasses and women’s sandals. As a customer,they would prefer purchase cheap gears to match their clothes,so they might purchase some other urbans to match.So they might click the keyboard to find “designer handbags”, coach handbags or relica nfl jerseys.Regarding to the jersey,you now might look for Pittsburgh Steelers jerseys,Dallas Cowboys jerseys? Okey,anyway,let’s take a look at the store selling uggs on sale,which is a really nice gift in China.
