HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE movie delayed 'til Summer '09!

Warner Bros. is pushing back the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince from it's originally scheduled date of this November... to July 17th, 2009!

Why? Officially the word is that the writers strike several months ago means that there will be a dearth of "tentpole movies" next summer and Warners wants to make up for it somehow.

It also means that by the time the adaptation of Half-Blood Prince comes out that there will have been two years since its release and the previous movie in the series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. And it'll be two years still after that before the series finally wraps up with Part Two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I'd hate to be the poor lady who's answering the phone at Warner Bros. when more people start hearing about this later this morning...

I speak as a devoted Harry Potter fan when I say I am completely disgusted with Warner Bros. Their explanation for the change in date is that they are "taking advantage of new windows of opprotunity" as stated by Studio president and chief operating officer Alan Horn. They might as well say "we are too selfish to give to what you want". We have already waited an entire year for the new movie and we were all excited because the movie was coming soon. But now, we will have to wait another year, making the entire wait between the movies a total of two years. I know other fans are going as far as setting up boycotts and such and I am proud to say that I will be taking part in them. Now, unfortunately, we will have to start the countdown to July 17, 2009.
