A Sad Day For Harry Potter Fans

Today is a very sad day for all Harry Potter fans. Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince will not be coming this November. Warner Brothers announced that Half-Blood Prince will be delayed. The film will instead be released on July 17th, 2009.

Mugglenet, (the online source for all Harry Potter information) said that Warner Brothers announced this at the press release.
“Our reasons for shifting ‘Half-Blood Prince’ to summer are twofold: we know the summer season is an ideal window for a family tent pole release, as proven by the success of our last Harry Potter film, which is the second-highest grossing film in the franchise, behind only the first installment. Additionally, like every other studio, we are still feeling the repercussions of the writers’ strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films—changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of. We agreed the best strategy was to move ‘Half-Blood Prince’ to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer.”

The Movie comes out in 335 more days, thats not so bad. I guess. :[
