Posted by Lilysowl On December - 12 - 2011

Harry PotterThe complete Harry Potter film series has been chosen by the American Film Institute to receive a special award in the institute’s annual recognition of excellence in film for the year 2011.  This recognition honors both the cast and crew for all eight films!

According to their website, the American Film Institute is “America’s promise to preserve the history of the motion picture, to honor the artists and their work and to educate the next generation of storytellers…”  Also, it is the largest non-profit exhibitor in the United States which has honored many legendary films, actors and actresses as well as television movies and programs for the past 40 years. 

The Special AFI Award is presented to visual screen work that has made outstanding achievements in the moving image which do not fit AFI’s criteria for the other honorees of the year.

:) But we always knew the Harry Potter films were in a category of their own, didn’t we?

Congratulations to the cast and crew of the Harry Potter films for receiving one of the highest honors in the film industry!

Potter Films 5 & 6 Looking at Blu-Ray 3D Conversion

Posted by Dijares On October - 13 - 2010

Variety are reporting that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince are getting a 3D conversion for their Blu-ray formats.  According to the article, Warner Bros have contracted Prime Focus to do the conversion.

As reported previously, Warner Bros scrapped the 3D conversion for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 because they felt the conversion would not be done with the quality they expected by the film’s release date of November 19th.  So, instead of pushing back the release date, they instead have stopped the conversion.  However, the conversion hasn’t been ruled out for a later date.  They still expect Part 2 to be in 3D.

There’s still no release date for the 3D formats for the 5th and 6th films, and director David Yates isn’t expected to be able to start work work on them 2011.  Whether they’re going to release the films in the 3D format in theatres is still uknown.

Studio is keeping mum about its 3D plans for the “Potter” backtitles, including street dates for 3D homevideo and whether there will be a theatrical re-release for the series. With the final four “Potter” pics in 3D, however, conversion of the earlier pics seems likely. Just as Yates has had creative oversight of 3D on his pics, conversion of the earlier titles would likely require the involvement of Chris Columbus, Mike Newell and Alfonso Cuaron, who directed the first four in the series.
