Warner Bros. Pictures confirmed on Tuesday that Clash of the Titans will be released in both 2D and 3D, and that the release date has been moved to April 2nd. The studio’s Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (July 30), Guardians of Ga’Hoole (Sept. 24) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (Nov. 19) will also get the 3D treatment. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (July 15, 2011) will also be released in 3D, but the studio hasn’t made that official.
Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures said in a statement: “We are experienced and have been successful in the conversion of 2D to 3D going back to such hits as ‘The Polar Express,’ select scenes in ‘Superman Returns’ and the last two ‘Harry Potter’ films. We are confident in the constantly evolving 3D technology, and the results for ‘Clash of the Titans’ will be presented onscreen with the highest-quality images available today. Based on our track record, we know that audiences are embracing the RealD and IMAX experiences, and we see many opportunities on our film slate to provide moviegoers with these great options at the multiplex.”
Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Picture Group, added: “We’re excited about 3D and look forward to bringing a rich, involving visual experience to audiences around the world.”
