End scenes of Order of the Phoenix to get 3D treatment.
Select scenes of the IMAX version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be digitally converted to IMAX 3D, according to an announcement made today by IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures.
The IMAX Corporation will use its proprietary 2D to 3D conversion technology, IMAX DMR, to transform approximately 20 minutes at the end of the film into 3D.
The previous installment of the series based on the books by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opened on November 18, 2005, shattering numerous IMAX 2D box office records at the time and has grossed more than $20 million in IMAX theaters worldwide.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be released in IMAX theaters and conventional theatres on July 13, 2007.
