I'm not ashamed to say it...I'm a Harry Potter Fan. I got into the books when my little brother was in middle school and he brought the first book home to read, and I read it instead. I read all of the book pretty quickly, and I've seen (and own) all of the movies. I was getting super excited for the newest Harry Potter movie (The Half Blood Prince) to come into theaters in November, so you can imagine my dissapointment when I heard that they have postponed the movie until JULY 2009! This is the reasoning:
"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," he said. "We agreed the best strategy was to move Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer." -Alan Horn-
At least we still have Twilight coming out in December, as long as that doesn't get pushed back I think I'll be ok.
