Previous Harry Potter films have exhibited in Imax theaters, but "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" will be the first to include Imax 3D for some sequences. The film’s stars expect this technique to further enhance the film’s already intense tone.
"It’s going to be fantastic," said Daniel Radcliffe. "It’s going to be terrifying. "There’s one moment where Ralph [Fiennes] as Voldemort sort of apparates and he comes from the side of the screen, sort of pushes forward and suddenly appears. That’s going to scar people. That’s going to be hysterical."
Emma Watson was concerned that audiences could not handle a more intense version of the film. "I was about to say, it’s scary enough as it is," she said. "In 3D, people will jump. Honestly, people will be jumping out of their seats. There’s enough moments as it is."
Radcliffe became obsessed with the eyewear. "Would they have the glasses? I don’t know, maybe they give you a visor or something. Or like the guy in Star Trek who had the thing [on his eyes]."
