Do we need any more evidence it isn't going away?
Studio executives around town have been scrutinizing film slates for opportunities to expand forays into 3D releasing. Warners has been testing footage from its upcoming "Clash of the Titans" -- converted into 3D by an outside vendor -- and the tests have gone so well that the studio has decided to release not only "Titans" but also the two-part "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D.
Warners refused to confirm the decisions Tuesday, but an announcement on "Titans" -- a co-production with studio-based producer Legendary Pictures -- is expected by week's end.
People who claim to know say that retro-fitting a feature with 3-D isn't as good as creating it in three dimensions to begin with. Regardless, you're going to see a lot more movies in the next few years with the big plastic goggles.
It's a commercial inevitability. Learn to love it.
