More than any other studio
Warner Bros will be bringing more Blu-ray 3D movies to retail than any other studio. In fact, its announcement today will single-handedly double the number of titles available for the holiday season.

Today, Warner announced the following titles will be released on Blu-ray 3D in November:
- Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore
- Clash of the Titans
- The Polar Express
- IMAX Deep Sea 3D
- IMAX Under the Sea 3D
- IMAX Space Station 3D
Cats & Dogs will be coming out day-and-date with the standard Blu-ray release. This will be the first such title since the Blu-ray 3D format was first announced earlier this year.
Also notable are the three IMAX titles. Those were all originally slated to be exclusive pack-ins with manufacturer-specific 3D hardware. Now they'll be available at general retail.
The Polar Express is also noteworthy because this will be the second 3D release of the movie. In 2008, it was released as a 3D movie with packed-in blue-and-red glasses. The new title will work with the new standard of stereoscopic 3D TVs. That also demonstrates just how confusing this whole 3D thing is.
And what the heck - we'll also talk about why Clash of the Titans is important. When it was released in theaters early this year, it was quickly blasted as one of the worst 3D presentations many viewers had ever seen. The movie was shot completely in 2D with no 3D intentions during production. But after the 3D craze started catching on, the studio was pressured into converting the movie into 3D at the last minute.
It didn't help that the movie was one of the first big titles to be presented in 3D after Avatar. The comparisons were extremely stark. It's kind of a big surprise to see Warner actually releasing it on Blu-ray 3D.
