‘Clash of the Titans’ Might Dominate in 3D

Posted by Anne in Jan 24,2010 with 4 Comments

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]

    I’ll see Clash of the Titans any way I can. But I don’t like how all the studios are all gun-ho about 3-D. It was good for Avatar, but I saw it in 2-D with a friend where it was availible and I enjoyed it just the same; in Cheyenne, WY there was no choice but to see it in 3-D. I think they should just leave it in 2-D, because if it’s good it will be more likely for people to return for a second helping; though the 3-D price didn’t stop me from seeing Avatar many times.
    I say there is only so much 3-D people can take. It may just go out of style, who knows.
    The studios say that Avatar was a big success because of the 3-D, but they fail to see the whole picture. It wasn’t just the 3-D, it was also the story, special effects, the technology used for the acting to come across, not to mention direction. To me it wasn’t the 3-D that had me going back for more, it was everything else. Studios are looking for a quick buck and they think they found it with 3-D. There are only so many 3-D screens, and if all the studios go the 3-D route, those with few or just one 3-D screen, like here in Cheyenne, WY will be missing out on other great pictures.
    Okay, I’m done ranting now.

    I saw Avatar in 2D and 3D. I like 2D better. I don’t like wearing glasses.
