Apparently, 2010 will be the year of wearing silly glasses at the movies.

Warner Bros. recently announced its plans to convert a number of high-profile releases -- among them the CGI epic 'Clash of the Titans' and 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I' -- from 2D to 3D, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In addition, /Film reports that Paramount is pressuring director Michael Bay to film the third installment of his 'Transformers' series in glorious 3D as well.

At first glace it all seems a mad shuffle to replicate the success of James Cameron's 3D juggernaut 'Avatar', but Warner Bros. insists that its decision to make the shift is anything but trendy.

"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," Dan Fellman of Warner Bros. domestic distribution told the Hollywood Reporter.
