MTV recently sat down with director James Cameron, and the result is a bunch of interesting, but not necessarily newsworthy, bits. I’ve embedded some of the more interesting video clips after the jump.

Box Office is reporting that Warner Bros has decided to bump Sylvain White‘s comic book adaptation The Losers from its previously announced release date of April 9th to June 4th 2010. It is assumed that the new Summer release was to give Warner Bros’ other release Clash of the Titans more breathing room. Clash had been recently pushed back to an April 2nd release due to a last-minute decision to do a post-production 3D conversion. So now The Losers will hit theaters just one week before Fox’s big screen adaptation of The A-Team. The two films have been compared in almost every write-up on the internet, and now they are set to go head to head in the Summer box office wars.’

Warner Bros wants audiences to know that Louis Leterrier‘s Clash of the Titans remake is being released in digital 3D so they created the “very subtle” new posters and banners to promote the release. Check out the new “The Clash Begins in 3D” advertising art after the jump. Click on the images to enlarge and see the super high resolution digital photo files. Did I mention that Clash of the Titans is now going to be released in 3D?

The fact that Clash of the Titans was being pushed back to April 2 to accommodate a last-minute conversion to 3D has been accepted as fact, even though Warner Bros. hadn’t officially said anything about the plan. Now there’s an official press release from the studio that removes any doubt. Yes, Clash of the Titans and the two halves of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are being converted to 3D and will be released in 2D and 3D simultaneously.
Prime Focus, one of the companies that worked on 3D for Avatar, is doing the Clash of the Titans conversion. WB president of domestic distribution, Dan Fellman, expressed corporate excitement for the format change and said, “We are experienced and have been successful in the conversion of 2D to 3D going back to such hits as The Polar Express, select scenes in Superman Returns and the last two Harry Potter films.”

We’ve seen a couple trailers for the Louis Leterrier remake of Clash of the Titans, but they’ve been mostly monster and action shots so far, seemingly aimed at those who know the original film. A teaser isn’t meant to give any indication of story, so we’ll give that one a pass, but watch the first full length trailer and you’ll see little that gets across any story besides, “hey, monsters! BIG monsters!” Now there is a new international trailer that takes a moment to get across a few of the plot points that set all those monsters in motion. Read More »
With the price of 3D tickets playing no small part in the record-setting performance of Avatar, it’s no surprise that other studios are jumping into the 3D tentpole business in a big way. What is a bit surprising is that some, like Warner Bros., are evidently jumping at the chance to convert films shot in 2D into 3D before release. There have been back and forth reports about Louis Leterrier‘s Clash of the Titans going 3D, and now we’re told that WB will refit the last two Harry Potter films in three dimensions as well.

Last month it was rumored that Warner Bros was considering converting Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans remake into a digital 3D release. Leterrier quickly debunked the rumor, claiming that they tried hard to convert the film to 3D but that the studio “just won’t have time” to meet the announced theatrical release. But now Heatwave has word that Warner Bros is still considering the post production process, and have ten days to decide in order to meet the March 26th 2010 release date.

Late last night we ran info about the rumor that Matt Bellamy from the band Muse would be doing supplemental music for the Louis Leterrier remake of Clash of the Titans. Quotes from Bellamy suggested that it wasn’t happening. Thanks to an interview Leterrier did today with MTV, we know for certain that Bellamy is not part of the equation. Instead, the film will have Craig Armstrong‘s score (as we pointed out last night) and supplemental music from Massive Attack.
“Craig [Armstrong], he was going to write the score and Matt Bellamy was going to come in and do… maybe 30 minutes of music,” Leterrier tells MTV. “Craig Armstrong is still doing the score and I called my friend Neil Davidge from Massive Attack to replace Matt for the areas that Matt was doing. So it’ll be Craig Armstrong and Massive Attack, which is pretty exciting.”
Additionally, there were rumors that Warner Bros. was interested in doing a last-minute conversion to 3D. That isn’t happening, says Leterrier. “We tried [to do 3-D for Clash]. We tried hard. We just won’t have time,” Leterrier says. “Maybe we possibly can re-release it in 3-D.”

When Warner Bros released the first trailer for Louis Leterrier‘s remake of Clash of the Titans, I wasn’t the only one not-so-impressed by the speed ramps, fast-cuts and loud music used to promote the fantasy film. /Film reader Lukáš Franta (of gorilla.cz) decided to edit a trailer for the original 1981 film using the soundtrack/score and a similar pacing of the upcoming remake. The resulting trailer mash-up can be viewed after the jump.
