Harry Potter Is Glad His Movie's Not In 3D

We kind of agree. This is one of those movies we want to experience, not be submerged in.

Though many Potter fans may disagree, Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe admitted to sources that he was glad the studio scrapped plans to convert Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One to 3D format. As he sees it, it isn't necessary. He explained:

"If any film doesn't need a gimmick, it's these ones, and that's for me what 3-D is. For me, 3-D adds nothing to the story."

He might not see the value in it, but Warner Bros.' sure does. Experts say that by not doing the film in 3D, they risk losing a good 10 to 20 percent of their projected revenue on the movie.

But it's not about the money, right? Its about the fans!

So what say U, Potterheads - would U have wanted to see this in 3D?

  1. 1

    THANK YOU!!! I effing HATE when they just throw 3D into random movies. It pointless and unnecessary most times.



  2. 2

    I personally like 3D. It feels like you're there more in the movie. But I don't mind that it doesn't have it. I really, really love Harry Potter though and would see it even if it was in black and white. The story is very important… especially as we start saying goodbye to the Harry Potter era. :(



  3. 3

    NO! I despise 3d!!! You have to hold your head straight, wear those dumb glasses, be right in the middle of the theatre… what a pain in the ass. I don't need 3d.



  4. 4

    No!
    3D is cool but gives me a bad headache after I watch it.
    I agree with Daniel.
    Harry Potter movies need no gimmicks!



  5. 5

    I agree!
    I don't really see the point of having 3D movies — I don't feel the picture and experience of a 3D are that much better that it's worth having sweaty plastic glasses on your nose, and not being able to see the friends you're watching the movie with



  6. 6

    hell no !!! i hate 3D



  7. 7

    I totally agree. It's gimicky. Also, it gives me a headache…



  8. 8

    Dan Rad is right about this! NO to 3D!



  9. 9

    Just saw this movie….comes out earlier in Australia….AND it does NOT need 3D….there's way too much other shit going dowwn in this film and 3D would add to the confusion for non readers anyway..3D tends to be just a studios gimmicky way of swiping more money off us



  10. 10

    Add me to the NO 3D crowd. I've seen several recent movies in 3D and I think it distracts more than enhances. I'm starting to see a real anti-3D sentiment rising. This does not bode well for 3D television sets.



  11. 11

    Though DanRad is so annoying, he's actually RIGHT about this one.

    The 3D craze is so dumb, is that really what people need these days to feel compelled to see a movie? I want these major production douches to fork some money over to the screenwriters so they can pump out better, more original scripts, you hardly ever see 'em any more.

    Plus, if the WB looses money…GOOD. I'm not getting a share of the profits, I'm spending to see this movie and I'd rather them focus on making it GOOD.



  12. 12

    AMEN!



  13. 13

    There is no point to 3-D he's right. Besides they only projected losing the 10 to 20 percent worth of tickets prices if it had been in 3-D. Us Potterheads are going to see the movie regardless



  14. 14

    ITS SO GOOD THIS MOVIE! i cant wait for the second part.. next year is so far away.. :(



  15. 15

    it's always about the money, Perez…You know that.

    3D is pointless and lame, just an excuse to make us pay more to see movies in the theater. i agree with the decision for no 3D



  17. 17

    I hate 3D! There's no point for The Harry Potter series to add it. It's already amazing!



  18. 18

    i agree with daniel here i mean 3D used to be something i looked forward to cause it was rare but now practically EVERY movie is in 3D its a fucking disgrace and HP does not EVER need to be in 3D because it is of high quality already and has a great story line 3D would add nothing at all



  19. 19

    I'm so glad it's not in 3D. 3D hurts my eyes and Harry Potter is too special for that



  20. 20

    I totally agree with Radcliffe on this, when i first heard that Harry Potter was going to be in 3D i thought it was stupid because i felt that they were just following the trend when movies such as the Harry Potter films set trends. I hope Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 also doesnt get the 3D touch.



  21. 21

    I have always said that 3D is stupid, people are always amazed when a 3d movie comes out but thats completly stupid we can bearly see the 3d difference, and those glasses are annoying I really preffer watching harry potter in normal format than wearing stupid glasses

    BTW I'm seeing the movie in 2 hours!! can't wait



  22. 22

    I am so tired of 3D…



  23. 23

    No I would not! They have enough going on as it is. They don't need the gimmicks. Leave it alone.



  24. 24

    yea i agreee…I was talking about this with someone the other day and I was saying how upset I would have been if it had been in 3d! like Daniel said its a gimmick and harry needs NO gimmick!



  25. 25

    my friends and i go to films in a group regularly, and we actually all groan and complain when a movie is ONLY in 3D…as we hate it. it adds nothing to the film, you have to wear these glasses which everyone else has worn (unsanitary), and it usually lessens the visual quality to some degree….at least i have found it to.

    3d sucks, and if i have an option to see 2d instead, i will.
    it is a gimmick to increase viewership, a cheap sales tactic…
    i have yet to see a film where 3d has enhanced the film so much that i said, oh my god i am so glad it was in 3d not 2d



  26. 26

    i personally would love dan rad in 3d while shirtless…. yummy



  27. 27

    Go Dan. I wasn't planning on seeing HP in 3D.

    I dislike watching movies in 3D in general.

    Most importantly however is the fact that DH is tomorrow.



  28. 28

    Re: samdavid – really? the few times I have watched a 3d movie, we have to pay for our glasses and get to keep them.



  29. 29

    We don't need 3D–In our theater, the seats move, shake etc which is a much better effect than 3D. It's called Dbox

    I LOVE watching a great 3D film, but Daniel is very right: it's more of a viewing gimmick. The only way you can really watch a 3D film is IN the theater & not at home so many people are forced to go out to see it. I think Harry Potter will be fantastic enough simply in high def. and seeing it's part one of the finale, it will be huge anyway!! Can't wait to see it!



  31. 31

    3D is awful. Thank goodness they didn't use it here.

    I'm so over it. Everything is 3D now…its just ridiculous. I hate wearing those glasses. I hate how dark everything is. I hate paying more for adding things I hate.



  32. 32

    so glad it's not in 3D, would have ruined the whole film! i don't see the point of it, when i go to the cinema i just want to watch the film!



  33. 33

    it's only good to do 3D if you film it that way. All these movies coming out in 3D after it's filmed just aren't the same.



  34. 34

    no not at all, 3d is fine for certain movies, but they honestly dont need to put it on every movie, harry potter holds up on its own without 3d, i think 3d would just take away from the movie, im sure it would distract people, give people headaches and make you cant wait for the movie to be over so you can take off those horrible glasses.
