It looks like Sam Worthington wasn't joking around when he revealed last month that Warner Bros. Pictures will convert their upcoming Clash of the Titans to the 3D format. While the studio itself has been silent on the reports, HR's Heat Vision confirms the remake is being adapted to the 3D medium.

The website also reveals that Harry Potter fans can expect the same 3D treatment in the final installments of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with part I scheduled for November 19, 2010 and part II scheduled for July 15, 2011.

Warners refused to confirm the decisions with the Hollywood Reporter, but an announcement on "Titans" is expected by week's end. Official word on the "Potter" pics is also expected soon.

Conversion expenses have been coming down, so each film will cost just $5 million to change into 3D. Warners also will absorb an additional $5 million expense per pic to pay for 3D glasses for exhibitors handling the movies.

The studio has also pushed Clash of the Titans back one week to a release on April 2, 2010.

It's 3D mania!  At least they're not holding out the 3D for the third installment of a movie. You know what I mean..  Amityville 3-D, Friday the 13th part 3D, and so on.  That was quite the gimmick in the 80s

Don't forget Jaws 3D!

This is just AVATAR changing the face of cinema yet again.

Feel AVATAR's wake

Uh, i liked Avatar just as much as the next guy, but changing the face of cinema?  Had you been talking about the special effects, I'd agree with you, but the 3D?  Come on, Disney and Pixar have been doing that for how many years now?  Avatar just reminded the big kids how cool 3D can be.  It will be interesting to see what happens with this boom to 3D movies.  If every special effects extravaganza starts being made in 3D, I wonder how long Avatar will hold onto the top box office it currently carries.  That will be a good gauge for how much the IMAX tickets affected the sales numbers.

3D isn't new but AVATAR is the one that changed the game. Didn't everyone read the rush by theater companies to install 3D digital screens all over the world. They weren't doing that to screen UP or A Christmas Carol, the rush was on to be ready for none other than AVATAR. Own up to that, never mind all the technical shit that will reverberate through out cinema for years

Oh and let's not forget the rush to start mass producing 3D tv's to, more than likely, coincide with AVATAR's dvd release

Let's all bow down to AVATAR

Point conceded...just still don't know about 3D in general...I've just got this nagging suspision I can't shake that it's going to end up being a fad just like it was last time it was super popular.  I'm not going to be rushing out to get a 3D television either.  I'm going to start buying land right next to the betamax landfill...that'll be some prime real estate in a few years.  Avatar does own on many levels though, no denying.

Another 3D???

Man this sucks....I know that every movie in 3D is not something I want to see. Thank the gods they are still showing both (non-3D and 3D) in theatres because if not, I would be pissed.

I wonder how much of HP Imax will be converting this time?  Hopefully way more than what we did for Half Blood Prince.  We were originally supposed to convert the beginning and the end of the film, but after it got pushed they decided to cut the 3D from the end.  Big mistake in my opinion cuz that's where all the action was.
