“Harry Potter” not in 3D after all

Hmm, weren’t we just talking about this? Warner Bros. announced Friday (yes, I’m a little late getting to this; just got back from vacation) that it will not be releasing “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I” in 3D when it arrives in theaters November 19; rather, it will be exclusively in 2D and in IMAX. The studio released a statement reading, in part:

“Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film [from 2D to 3D] in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey.”

Wow, that conversion must have looked pretty bad. Anyway, this is good news for a lot of us: When I polled readers on this in September, more than two-thirds said they’d prefer to see the movie in 2D. Warner Bros. does say, though, that they still plan to release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II” in 3D as well as 2D, in July 2011.
