The Next Harry Potter Won’t Be in 3-D

Harry Potter is apparently more powerful than Greek gods and last airbenders when it comes to fending off terrible postproduction 3D. Warner Bros. announced today that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 will eschew its planned 3-D conversion because "despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality." Said the film's obviously relieved director David Yates: "This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first." Well, except for when the studio released Clash of the Titans with a post-conversion 3-D job that was like flipping through a Viewmaster drunk, but we should probably try to forget that and enjoy this nice day on which studios keep getting things right. Good job, everyone! [Coming Soon]
