Thanks to 'Avatar', Will Every Movie Be 3-D?

On the heels of James Cameron's Avatar, now the top-grossing movie of all time, Hollywood is having second thoughts about traditional 2-D movies that are in production or scheduled for release in the months ahead. Warner Brothers has just announced that two of its buzziest upcoming films -- the remake of Clash of the Titans (starring Avatar's Sam Worthington) and the sequel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 -- will now be released in 3-D.

In marked contrast to Avatar, which took four years to perfect its 3-D technology, neither Titans or Deathly Hallows were shot with 3-D in mind. With less than a year to build a 3-D universe before Deathly Hallows' November release date, could multi-dimensional Hogwarts possibly achieve the magical, otherworldly quality of Avatar's Pandora?

It's not just Harry and Hermione who are caught up in the whirlwind: 3-D mania is now sweeping through movie studios, affecting projects of all genres. The next Saw sequel (#7) will be 3-D, as will the upcoming Toy Story 3, Step Up 3-D and Jackass 3-D. Reportedly, the filmmakers behind Star Trek 2 and Transformers 3 are considering it. Even classic favorites, like Star Wars and Disney's Beauty and the Beast, are looking at 3-D revamps. How long before 3-D glasses start showing up on the fashion runway?
