A change is coming.
Thanks to the success of Avatar, Warner Brothers Studios is now considering releasing its fantasy-actioner remake Clash of the Titans in the popular and profitable format of 3D. (This proves that the Avatar experiment was right in hoping that people would penny up more for a third-dimension experience).
Clash of the Titans stars Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson. Neeson plays Zeus in a role made famous by Laurence Olivier when the original came out in 1981.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has ordered a 3D test of the film, and will decide by January 30th on whether it wants to release Titans in the originally planned 2D or with the enhanced 3D. Usually, most 3D films are shot from the very beginning in 3D, but there is certainly technology that helps convert 2D pictures to 3D (as like what happened with the Toy Story re-releases last fall).
If Warner Bros. does decide to go 3D, the company will also face competition with How To Train Your Dragon, the fantasy-family film from Dreamworks that also comes out on March 26th. However, when a studio insider was asked about the difficulty of securing 3D screens for Titans also, the person said “No problem.”
What do you think? Does it matter to you whether Clash of the Titans is in 3D or 2D? Will you pay extra to see the Cracken in a third dimension, or will you be seeing How To Train Your Dragon instead? [Source]
