Updating previous news about "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", which will also see its screening on IMAX theatres at the same time the movie encounters its release on conventional theatres on July 13, 2007, it turns out that the IMAX 3-D version of the flick still puts in big question as there is no word yet about this digital conversion. Warner Bros. itself, as the picture's distributor, is now reported to be busily involved in doing the version for several of its summer's would-be blockbusters projects this year, including "Superman Returns" and the animated "The Ant Bully", so fans of the series who wait in anticipation for the version thus may have to be patient a bit longer for the good news to come.

Concerning this matter, IMAX spokeswoman Sarah Gormley, as reported by E! Online, has given her explanation about the 3-D conversion process. "Obviously, the entire industry is thinking about 3-D, but each film is looked at and negotiated one at a time," so she has said, indicating that a decision on the eye-popping format will come once principal photography is complete.
