Yep, More Potter
IMAX Corp. and Warner Brothers announced that the final 20 minutes of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be digitally converted into 3-D in the version of the movie released in IMAX theaters on July 13.
The fifth film in the franchise, based on J.K. Rowling's books, will also be released in conventional theaters on that date.
IMAX said that it will use its proprietary 2-D-to-3-D conversion technology to transform the end of the film into IMAX 3-D.
The previous installment of the series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, broke IMAX 2-D box-office records when it opened in November 2005, the company said.
Editor's Note: So most of the film will be 2-D IMAX, and then 20 minutes will be (faux) 3-D IMAX!!! This sounds like an excuse....as if we NEEDED one...to see the movie a second time in the theaters, yes???!!!
AND, now a bit of Rumor-mongering....
'Equus' with Radcliffe & Griffiths to come to Broadway?
Editor's Note: And now we pause for a sec whilst all of you who downloaded the nudieharry pics have a PRIVATE moment.....
We have been receiving emails all morning letting us know that Harry Potter actors Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths are planning to take the current production of Equus, which closes on June 9th on London's West End, to Broadway in 2008.
Please note that both Dan and Richard were only scheduled to participate in the play till June 9th and recent speculation of extending the run with new actors has previously been reported online and have subsequently been denied.
We are trying to have this news confirmed and will update once we know more.
