Deathly Hallows no longer 3D

We'll have to put up with two dimensions...

Warner Bros. has suddenly pulled the plug on the 3D conversion for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One, claiming that due to time constraints it will not be ready for the film's November 19 release date.

The 2D and IMAX release will still go ahead as planned, but we will have to wait for Part 2's July 15 2011 release before we can finally have Harry's wand thrust directly into our tiny, bewildered faces.

WB's claimed in a statement that 'Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality.'

Whilst surprising this does have some encouraging connotations; it would at least seem that after the much-maligned Clash of the Titans 3D conversion, the studio has learnt its lesson.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One is in cinemas November 19.

3D? Or not 3D? Let us know your thoughts below.

In cinemas this week…

      Honestly, I'm really happy that they're not converting it into 3D anymore. The first time I ever saw a 3D film, it was in Magic Kingdom, and that film was MADE to be viewed in 3D, unlike movies these days. Sure they convert it, but there's nothing about the movie that is needed to be viewed in 3D, it just looks so unnecessary. Now, unless they were going to change a few things in the movie that needs to be viewed in 3D, I would much rather have it viewed the old fashioned way.

      I loathe 3d movies, I can't wait for this fad to disappear into the depths of film hell where it belongs. So thankfully Warners have decided against it… whoop pe feckin doo. I can only hope that they don't ruin this successful franchise and put it on the last part. Do us all a favour and STOP with all the post production 3d its garbage. Least I don't have to worry which cinema will be showing the proper version this time.

      I'm pleased 3D is becoming just a gimmick to make more money
