‘Half-Blood Prince’ Pushed Back

Noo!!! To be honest, I don’t fully agree with their reasoning. Sure, it may be an ‘open weekend’ during a typically busy summer season, but what other movie comes out on its original release date? If they had no problem releasing it this November, they should’ve done so.

They say it’s also because of the studio wanting to shorten the gap between this and the final two films, but I don’t see them trying to make the wait for this one more acceptable as opposed to making us wait for the next one. I mean, they’re trying to tell us that we won’t have to wait as long between Half-Blood Prince and part 1 of Deathly Hallows, but they aren’t acknowledging the fact that we’re waiting an extra eight months for Half-Blood Prince.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” the sixth installment in the blockbuster film franchise about boy wizard Harry, is moving from its planned Nov. 21 release to July 17, 2009, distributor Warner Bros. said Thursday.
The move was made to take advantage of an open weekend in Hollywood‘s busy summer season, said Alan Horn, Warner Bros. president and chief operating officer. The film had been on schedule, and the change was not due to any production snags, he said.
“The picture is completely, absolutely, 100 percent on schedule, on time. There were no delays,” Horn told The Associated Press. “I’ve seen the movie. It is fabulous. We would have been perfectly able to have it out in November.”
The switch will mean a two-year lag between the film adaptations of books five and six in J.K. Rowling‘s fantasy series. But it will shorten fans’ wait between “Half-Blood Prince” and the final two installments, which are being shot simultaneously next year.
