Half-Blood Prince Movie Pushed to July 2009

The sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, originally scheduled for a November 21 release, has now been moved to July 17, 2009 in the US and major international markets, according to MarketWatch.com. WB has confirmed the move to TLC. Update: The the official website has changed to reflect the date.

The press release says the reason for the move was two-fold: First, the studio says summer releases are better for “family tentpole” events, and second, they are still feeling the aftereffects of the writers’ strike and need the time to make sure the film reaches the widest audience possible.

The new date, said Jeff Robinov, president of WB’s motion picture group, does not alter the production schedule for the last two Harry Potter films; filming on the first of the two book-seven films will begin in February. “The good news for [fans],” he said, “is that the gap will now be shortened between ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and the first part of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.’”

The writers’ strike, the release says, “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.”

That would be horrible. I highly doubt this is true.

WTF??!!

Avatar Image says:

is this some sort of sick joke?

Avatar Image says:

That better be not true…

Avatar Image says:

WHAT? THAT CAN”T BE TUE!! PLEASE NOOOOOOOOO

I won’t be able to survive this long :(

Avatar Image says:

Since the film is in post production, this makes no sense at all. That is an 8 month push back. I certainly hope it’s not true. Just thinking about it gives me a stomach ache. :(

Avatar Image says:

Well… this kinda sucks.

Avatar Image says:

WHAT? THAT CAN”T BE TRUE!! PLEASE NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

basically they’re saying they’re pushing it back to make more money…

let the back lash begin.

Avatar Image says:

Guys, April Fool’s was over 4 months ago.

Load of rubbish. I hope it’s not true.

Avatar Image says:

There’s going to be protests. I mean first they realeased the trailer WAY later than we thought…. and the trailer STILL had a Nov. release on it…. If they push this movie back, people are gunna get mad. They can;t just advertise it as being November and then not release it. That’s really stupid. They are really tryin to milk it, but I can see this blowing up in their faces.

haha…if this is true, the good news is the “late” teaser will now be early… haha…funny in a sick, twisted kind of way.

Avatar Image says:

dudes, this can’t be true, because they JUST released all the international dates. clearly, preparations have already gone into booking the film for November. They won’t change it. Plus, if they tried they get EVERY fan nagging them to change the date back to November. They’d have a revolt on their hands. They won’t change it, don’t worry.

Avatar Image says:

That may be why the trailer has taken so long to be released.

However I doubt that it’s been pushed back because all of their marketing that they have already done would have been wasted.

Avatar Image says:

please say this isn’t true! WTF!

Avatar Image says:

DIE WARNER BROTHERS DIIIEEEE! First we have a massive news drought and a lack of pics, posters, trailers, etc. NOW we have to wait an entire YEAR even though the film has already been finished! WTF?

Avatar Image says:

I really hope this isn’t true! If it is, it’s a ridiculous idea.

They’ve already started marketing tie-in games and products, and the Royal Command Performance has already started selling tickets – I can’t see that they can suddenly push back the release date by eight months.

Avatar Image says:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

why doesn’t it say “April Fools!” at the end of the whole thing? WHY?

(curls up in a ball and dies)

Avatar Image says:

They’re already in post production!!!! LAME. Better not be true. Especially since they said that it was for more money, come on. It would still be plenty big in November.

Avatar Image says:

OMGWTF. This can’t be true.

Avatar Image says:

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! WTF! WB really are coming off as stupid now! This is rubbish and this is ridiculous! WTF!

Avatar Image says:

They’re already in post production!!!! LAME. Better not be true. Especially since they said that it was for more money, come on. It would still be plenty big in November.

Avatar Image says:

thats sick!!! arghhhhhhhhhhh

I hope its not true-we already have relase dates for all countries and trailer and all that…come on…WB you can’t do that!!!

Avatar Image says:

um…FAIL!

i hope its not true…

Avatar Image says:

This isn’t right. How can they tease us like this. They advertise that the movie is comming then what…......Who ever started this joke is sick.

Avatar Image says:

Are you Serious???! This Better be a horrible rumor!!! 8 months?!

I was planning on going to see it for my birthday cus it comes out the day before! Thank WB for making my bday a bad day! I bet they want to release it during the summer of ‘09 just for the flipping money! What about the fans?

THIS BETTER NOT BE TRUE!!!

:(

Avatar Image says:

um. i even went through my mind to make sure it wasn’t April 1st. not kidding.

dude. i don’t like this at ALL. roll back the truck and make more money than you all ready are gonna get, yeah WB, you do that.

Avatar Image says:

If this is by any possible chance true, someone is gonna get their sorry behind ripped into tiny little shreds.

And that’s just for starters :)

Avatar Image says:

um…FAIL!

i hope its not true…

Avatar Image says:

Hah…sure. Screw you Marketwatch.com. Calm down everyone…this couldn’t possibly happen. I’m sure of it….....right. Someone say yes dammit.

Glahhhrgh!

Okay…good news is. We’ve seen previews that all say Nov 21st that means they promised. Right! dangit! someone say yes! please!!! 31 year old man cries all over himself

Avatar Image says:

As someone who actually works at a movie studio, this does not surprise me. When the teaser trailer did not come out a few months ago, and then when it did it was not the full trailer, signs were definately pointing that they needed more time for this film. I honestly don’t think this is about money (there’s really nothing opening up against it), it has more to do with getting the finished product right.

Avatar Image says:

Screw that. I’m so pissed off. Epicus Failus, WB.

Avatar Image says:

I think they are doing this because Twilight is coming out 2 weeks after and the sucess of the Twilight books and the hype for the film is making the Harry Potter filmakers worry they will lose money! Because most of the money is made in America x

Avatar Image says:

Screw that. I’m so pissed off. Epicus Failus, WB.

Avatar Image says:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This better not be true! I don’t think I could last that long!

Also, if they did that how old would the actors be for DH?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

This article has a quote from the WB prez, which makes it seem like it may be true, but do these people realize how many angry fans they’re going to have on their hands?! There was such a long drought of info and then the teaser hit and now we’ve been getting all this info on video games, products, photos, etc… and now they’re going to push it back 8 months?? That makes zero sense. I personally think the holiday season is more of a time for family movies than summer is so what the smurf?! This is a horrible move on WB’s part and I will be refreshing Leaky every minute until I see the post that they’ve denied this story because that’s the only thing that makes sense.

Disgusting capitalist scum! Let’s boycott the film and buy it on the black market – they deserve a knock in profits. Fan power … we should take to the streets!

Avatar Image says:

tell me this is a joke, someone- anyone! It makes no sense.

Its already in post production, what writing is even involved?? Its madness. And in the tiny chance this is true, what about the game and stuff?? Will all those be pushed back too or something? Its just rubbish and I refuse to believe it.

If its true I’m gonna explode!

Avatar Image says:

WHAT!!!!!! Why would they do that? It’s so stupid!!!! They’ll get enough money because it’s the Harry Potter series! It’s huge and so many are already anticipating it!! Ughhhhhhhh!!!!! I really hope this is not true!

Avatar Image says:

There is no way on hell this can be true. All the HP Films (as far as I m aware) are released in November, they wouldn’t do it as people have already said

1) TIckets have gone on sale for the royal thingy 2) International release dates have been announced 3) Why release a taioler that gives false information almost A YEAR before the film is coming out 4) The writers strike affected other films yet they weren’t pushed back by a that much (I’m thinking BATMAN – though that was kinda down to Heath Ledger) 5) There will be an outcry and possibly a boycott!!

Avatar Image says:

i hope they burn in HELL!!!

Avatar Image says:

Well, it’s now been confirmed true by Warner Bros.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are taking the p!!!

Well it better be one Hell of a film then.

Avatar Image says:

The someone updated the post to say WB had confirmed. This is the dumb thing I’ve ever heard and I can hear the screams of Potter fans all over the world.

Avatar Image says:

what the hell??? all i’ve got to say is that if they’re pushing it back to next summer it had better be effing AMAZING

Avatar Image says:

This kind of thing happens in the movie business. Pixar pushed b ack the release date of “CARS” a couple of times. There is a movie based on the Inkheart books that was supposed to be released last spring and now is looking at 2009 – it’s finished, trailers have been shown, but they decided to wait to release. Go figger.

However this move by WB is REALLY weird. I can see that maybe they get a better audience in the summer, but with a built in fan base (US!) you can be sure that whenever the movie is released it will be huge. I guess they are trying to pull in more non-fans. I hope this doesn’t come back and bite them in the wand pocket!

THATS SO MESSED.

It’s on their website already, July 17, 2009. Stupid. Crazy. They were pretty much done with it, right? Will they start working on the DH in the meantime?

Avatar Image says:

Screw WB. This is a load of crap. Now we know why we only got a teaser trailer a few weeks ago…and here is the real kicker: they must have known about this for weeks, and yet they STILL put a November release in the trailer.

Avatar Image says:

OMG! THAT’S NO POSSIBLE!!! Please, tell me this is a Joke!!!

Fans, we MUST march against WB!!! We HAVE TO make a lot of petition, we HAVE TO sent milions of letters to WB to keep November,21 as date of relase of the film.

We CAN’T DO NOTHING!!!!!

FANS, WE HAVE TO ACT, NOW!!!

I have checked so many websites and they all have the new date july 17 for the movie. The one thing that makes me scatch my head is that the warner bros website and the harry potter website both still have the old date november 21st for the movie. If this is true why wouldnt those two websites be the first websites to have the new date posted for the movie.

Avatar Image says:

This has got to be fake. They would never do this. 8 months? Not true.

Avatar Image says:

It’s totally about money. They have no product of consequence for 2009 and needed something so… Harry Potter it is. The reasons they are giving are manufactured so they will not look like money grubbers. I told my friend at WB this would really irk the fans…

Avatar Image says:

UGGGGGGGGGGG!!! So lame :(

Avatar Image says:

The good news is that we will have to wait less time between the release of HBP and DH? Are you kidding? Who do they think will buy that logic? If they stuck with the original release date, then we would have our DVDs by the new release date.

Thanks, WB, for messing over your fan base… again. I hope everyone writes lots of letters to WB letting them know how we feel about this.

And, it looks like it is true as the WB HBP website now has July as the release date. I’m very, very disappointed.

Avatar Image says:

Why the hell would the AMERICAN writers strike delay a BRITISH film? That’s so stupid. Please tell me this isn’t true. If so, they’ve shot themself in the foot.

As if they need a bigger market for Harry Potter!

P.S. Why doesn’t Mugglenet have anything about this if it’s true?

Avatar Image says:

WHAT?! Ergh, this better be a joke.

Avatar Image says:

you know what…....F%CK YOU WB, THAT’S IT!! IF THIS TRUE, I WON’T EVER BOTHER TO SEE THE FREAKING MOVIE ANYMORE, this is getting BEYOOOOND RIDICULOUS, I’m losing my interest in this movie alredy, so I’m gonna move on and stop waiting about it!!!

Avatar Image says:

Is it April Fools already? I always hated that day.

Seriously, what a bunch of poopy-heads. Don’t they know some of us are old, and might die before the last movie comes out?

Seriously sucks.

Yes, it’s true, it’s printed everywhere by now. They say it’s to beef up the Summer 2009 schedule since they don’t have much because of the writiers strike. It is odd though with all the recent promotional things. Dan Radcliffe is even on this weeks cover of EW apparantly for the Fall movie pre-view. I think there are going to be alot of angry people storming the WB communication lines.

As if they need a bigger market for Harry Potter! And it was the christmas market as well! They wouldn’t need to wait for the summer instead of that.

I keep waiting for someone to say “April Fool’s!” But then I remember it’s August. This is cruel. First no promotional stuff forever and ever and then they push the movie back EIGHT MONTHS? They must’ve been planning this from the beginning. It explains the feet dragging with the teaser trailer. Maybe they’re afraid of going up against Twilight. lolol

I really hope that’s not the case.

Read between the lines:

WB has announced that they will be pushing back the release of HBP because the movie needs work, or it is seriously not ready, or was poorly filmed, or because the economy is in the tubes. Also, they do not care about how many fans get MAD because all those mad fans will STILL go and see the movie in July anyways, and will likely pay more to see it. Lastly, it is their product, and they can release it whenever they want to – they signed no contracts with the fans. Public outcry, fans, friends don’t matter. Just the fact that the wallets will open just the same, or moreso, in July. It’s a business, and they think with their shareholders alone.

Please tell me you’re joking! If not, then I hope they take this extra time to fix it up some more and make it spectacular and worth the extra wait.

Avatar Image says:

Guys, I think it’s less about the TDK’s success than about the WB’s inability to find a blockbuster to fit in the coveted June/July 2009 spot.

Think about it: they have “Terminator: Salvation” lined up for May, but no other big tentpole franchises lined up in the two coveted months. And anyone who has read about the failed George Miller project “Justice League: Mortal” that was supposed to be fast-tracked for a June/July 2009 release is now killed due to the success of TDK (and for the WB not wanting to kill their chances of a third Batman movie by ticking off the director and lead actor).

Just look at it, J.J. Abrams’s “Star Trek” was originally supposed to be released Christmas Day 2008, but now is pushed back to May 2009 to give it the best chance possible to make a lot of money. So, when you read between the lines, the move from November 2008 to July 2009 makes sense: the WB couldn’t find a superhero tentpole film to fast-track for that coveted summer spot, so they decided to postpone HBP for July to make up for that.

I’m just shocked the WB didn’t announce it earlier and not wait until 3 months before the original release date to push it back.

Avatar Image says:

Business Wire,via Yahoo…... It’s true. It’s a shame and a shock, but there you are….Yes, they are in Post Production. Yes, there has been a “teaser” released as well as pictures of merchandising and Video Game Trailers. It is interesting to note that there IS an “upside” to all of this…there will be a shorter gap [as stated in the article, on Business Wire] between HBP and DH. “Silver Lining’??? Not really. But, they’re in control. I don’t think they are going to lose any box office, from this. And maybe we’ll get the trailers we’ve been clamoring for.

If I remember, correctly, it was stated [a while ago] that Steve could not begin writing on DH, because of the Writer’s Strike. It is unfortunate, but that [as someone else has already said] is the movie business….it includes Actors [SAG] Extras [SEG] etc.

One must remember that WB is not in the business of making movies as much as they are in the business of . . . making money. Certainly we fans think this is horrible. But the stockholders appreciate good business practices. Whether this (if true) turns out to be such, we’ll have to wait and see.

I’d personally prefer not waiting and seeing the film much earlier but I was not consulted. Pity.

So I should’ve been worried by the article on darkhorizons.com some months ago stating WB were very light on confirmed ‘blockbusters’ for Summer 2009, compared to other major studios. I’ve complained of too much negativity here in the past but I agree with everybody on this one – it stinks!!

Avatar Image says:

wow. welcome to a gamers world haha.

Avatar Image says:

WTF? THIS IS AWFUL!

Avatar Image says:

Uh, it’s VERY true folks. It’s now on the official Harry Potter movie site. It sucks I know but it looks like it’s offcial. We will be wating another year for the next Harry Potter film…

Avatar Image says:

Well its either for two reasons, either the CGI is truly way behind and they wanted it to get the movie done. Or they are trying to fill the void in July which is empty. WB doesn’t have a big movie to put out next summer. It was suppose to be Justice League but that fell apart with the writers strike. So they put Potter there knowing it feels the void. The wait is going to suck I admit but I understand why they are doing it.

Avatar Image says:

WTF?!!!!!! If they continue to do this to us, they won’t have anyone come and watch it b cuz people will be sick of waiting.

Avatar Image says:

THIS IS MESSED UP! THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE!! UGH!!!

Avatar Image says:

” JO, do something about this! Sue them!”

this better be a joke… a very sick joke

This is just like the flipping studios to do this, blame the writers strike and its the fans that suffer, god I was so looking forward to seeing this before I went away at Christmas this guy needs some serious smiting done on his arse.

Avatar Image says:

I was sort of looking forward to HBP on the big screen… but, eh, no big deal. Delays happen. I’m not happy about the delay, BUT I’d rather see it later rather than never.

Avatar Image says:

WOW. WB just keeps getting bolder and more reckless with our hearts. This is pretty much the equivalent of WB giving all the Harry Potter fans the finger. Basically, they can force us to wait because they know we’ll go see the movie anyway! They aren’t hurt at all, and they could care less that we now have to wait just under a year when we were expecting it in three months!

I SO WISH I HAD THE WILLPOWER TO BOYCOTT THIS MOVIE. But I don’t…

Avatar Image says:

i think I might cry! how can this be possible??

Avatar Image says:

WHAT?!! NO!! This can’t be happening!! Someone please tell me I’m asleep and this is just a really bad nightmare. If this is someone’s idea of a sick joke, please just let us know now. Please don’t let this be true.

Avatar Image says:

THEY CANNOT DO THIS!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Is this actually true? and if it is why on earth did WB decide to do this to us surely they didn’t just decide this over night they must of been thinkin about this for a while to move ti forward EIGHT months, i don’t see how it can need finishing that much when they finished filming quite a while ago now! And they’ve released the trailer with november on it and released info about the premier and tickets are already being sold!

I think that if it is true the reason for it is that they think that the new James Bond film and Twilight which are both released around that time are going to outstrip them in ticket sales, but theres going to be a lot of angry fans to deal with now so there not going to be very popular.

It can’t be, it just can’t. A whole year? I’m goign to die. Why can’t this be April Fools? The sad thing is, I understand with the the whole writer’s strikek that went on.

I am literally speechless with shock and rage. I never cease to be amazed by the nerve these people have! Greedy bastards, GO TO HELL WARNER BROS! The writer’s strike excuse is total BS, they’ve been in post-production since May! I can’t believe this, its just not right. It just doesn’t even seem like this can really be happening. I’m seriously too shocked and confused to really comment, but I’m sure later once it really sinks in I’ll be in full on rant mode.

Avatar Image says:

Usually when studios di this so late in production, the prescreen audiences do not go well. My guess as the studio would like to make monies for the holiday season is that in post production someone saw something they did not like. Either in writing or editing, there probably needs to be a fix. Sad that they cannot come out on schedule, but better that than turning out a flawed film.

Avatar Image says:

It’s plain to see that WB has very little respect for their fans. That became clear when we spent months waiting eagerly for the trailer, which turned out to be only a minute and a half long. The main interest here is money, because apparently WB just doesn’t have enough…yeah right. Last I heard The Dark Knight was coming close to being the second highest grossing film EVER! I mean really, this is just insane! Do they think the fans are just going to take this? I hope they’re getting plenty of angry letters, because they’re being incredibly selfish. And sure, being big Potter fans, we’ll probably end up seeing the movie no matter what, but that shouldn’t give WB the right to jerk us around like this! Oh, and nice try, Jeff Robinov, but the fact that this will shorten the gap between films does NOT console me, nor does it console the millions of other disappointed fans who had their hearts set on a November release.

I don’t care if it decreases the wait between Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows… I want the damn movie now!!! We get two movies later, I want Half-Blood Prince NOW!!! I litterally say, anyone living in Cali and anyone else who wants to.. We should all go to the WB studios and give them a piece of our minds.. This is CRAZY!!!! What are they thinking.. UGH!!!! I’m off to burn some more steam somewhere.. maybe punch someone in the face.. how about kick someone like Draco does to Harry in The Half-Blood Prince.. UGH!!!!!!!!! I’m Freakin’ going mad here..

Avatar Image says:

What a bunch of jerks at WB – let the fans start the count down and get all excited and then push it back for a few more bucks. It’s a slap in the face to the fans.

Avatar Image says:

Oh my. Well, I guess that’s just the cherry on the cake. WB does not give a toss about the fans.

“The good news for [fans],” he said, “is that the gap will now be shortened between ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and the first part of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.’”

HAHAHAHA. Does he honestly think the fans give a stuff about that, compared to how furious they will be that the film release date has been pushed back over half a year?

To those who are saying that they need more time to finish post-production: that is incorrect! Follow the link to the full press release on Marketwatch:

“Jeff Robinov, President of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group, confirmed, “The release date change does not alter the production schedule for this or future Harry Potter films. Post-production on ‘Half-Blood Prince’ was completed on time, and the studio’s release plans for the two-part ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ will not be affected by this change. “

It was also reported several weeks ago that post-production is complete. This move is indeed a purely financial one. If it WAS because they needed to work more on the film itself they would have said so, they wouldn’t have looked like such money-grubbers. Now we know this is all about the ticket-sales for them. There is no other reason to delay the film’s release.

This is real comedy. They’re trying to milk as much money as possible out of their cash cow now that they realise how close they are to losing it.

Guy and gals, don’t let them get away with this. Start petitions, bombard them with emails, let WB know just how furious the ten of thousands of fans are about this idiotic move. I personally feel strongly enough about this issue to boycott the film and I will do so, and will encourage others to do so. As much as I want to see the film, WB needs to realise that they cannot get away with mistreating their fans and I have more than enough willpower to not see the film in the cinema.

My life will not end if the film does not come out in November, I am simply disgusted that WB would abuse their relationship with fans so thoroughly for a few extra ticket sales and if they know what is good for them they will put the date back to November or they will feel just how terrible the wrath of the Potter fans is….and we know there are a LOT of them.

Well, WB just lost one adult ticket sale. Actually, probably more than one since I often go to see the HP films more than once. Pity for them.

Avatar Image says:

November is a perfetly respectable time of the year (the HOLIDAYS!) to release a family movie. This is ridiculous. What can they possibly be thinking?

Avatar Image says:

I doubt it’s crap or they have to reshoot or whatever. It’s almost certainly exactly what they say: they have nothing in 2009 to compete in the market (though I doubt many studios do have big 2009 movies because of the strike) so they are moving it. I hate it, it sucks, but it makes a sick sense.

I’m just going to go cry into my morning coffee now ….

Avatar Image says:

WHAT THE HELL, MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS REDICULOUS. they build up all the hipe for a fall opening and NOW they’re going to push the date back further. the film would have done quite well financially just from all the potter fans and they’ll be able to get all the merchandising out by christmas! it makes no sense to push the date back once it’s been set.

In case anyone noticed, harry potter movies are so popular they dont need to have an american summer to have a mass audience. Example last year in july when I went to see the last movie nobody was in line at any shop they were all yelling “OPEN THE DOORS” in front of the cinema(me included) nobody was in any other line for any other movie. when I could actually see past the giant harry potter sign more still came in. so you see they dont need to delay it til stupid northern hemisphere summer for money!!!!!!

Urgh I’m going to go throw up.

And now I’m in a dilemma – I genuinely feel so strongly about this that I’m considering not going to see HBP when it is eventually released. Yes, this is the most psyched I have ever been about a HP movie – and it was coming close to the book excitement. I don’t think I will be paying money to see their film. And they will certainly be recieving a nasty letter…. or five…. or more…. from me. Preferably with bubotuber pus.

This is totally crap. Not happy at all.

I joked about this a few weeks ago. I swear I was kidding. This makes sense financially for WB, but iI’m still disapointed. Obviously, thanks to Dark Knight, they’re not worried about how much money they’ll make in the 4th quarter this year. I guess this means Terminator Salvation really is as bad as some have suggested. Man 2008 has not been a good year for Harry Potter fans. We’re getting Pwned

Avatar Image says:

this is absolutely RETARTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! do they think we can wait even longer than we have been?!? THey’ve hardly given us any thing execpt a trailer and now there throwing that at us? THIS. IS. DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!! if this is true..i’ll die.

Avatar Image says:

And I was scheduling my vacation around the release date! I could have went away this summer before school started. This is bogus!

Avatar Image says:

ha! well this hasnt fooled me! this is clearly a joke!..........cough….........

Avatar Image says:

WTFFFFFFF???? IT’S THIS A JOKE??

Avatar Image says:

It disappoints me greatly, that they would move back HBP, the movie we’ve been salivating over for months wondering when they’re going to put the trailer out (this could be why they haven’t), just so they have more even profits next year. Why not push something else back? Unless this is some sort of sick British ‘April Fool’s’ type day, please?

OMGGGGGGGG. NO. WAY. this is so wrong. totally unfair… how could they do this to us??! all they care about is money!! we’ve been waiting for months and months for tiny bits of info and now, BAM, they changed the date on us?!! ARGHHHHHH! i thought this was an april fool’s joke at first until i realized it was august. thanks a lot WB. =(

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!!! what a major disapointment!! what do they think they’re doing that for: giving out false hopes and then saying that they won’t release it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don`t they knoww how many people were expecting that movie!! gosh!

Avatar Image says:

If this is true, I am so incrediably angry I can’t even contain it.

If the WB thinks we are going to fall for that writer’s strike thing they are dumber than I thought. This script was written and being filmed when the strike was on and barely inflenced productions in the UK. It was a US problem.

Also, HP diverged from being a “family film” long ago. The other releases at Thanksgiving have made a ton of money as well, so I don’t see where incuring the wrath of the fans is going to help that.

I would like to threaten to boycott the film, but I know I won’t. I just wish they knew how despirately the fan base was looking forward to this.

How do we lodge a protest to the WB!

Avatar Image says:

This would be incredibly, incredibly sloppy of them.

Avatar Image says:

This is so very sad. I became a fan of the series because of the movies and now to punish us like this. They may have just lost one “movie” fan.

Avatar Image says:

How does the writer’s strike affect a movie THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE SERIOUSLY?

I’m so pissed off right now. Screw WB. Seriously. I hate them right now. so Much. This is probably one of the worst things that has ever happened to me EVER I HATE WB. AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ANGRY

This made my stomach turn. My mind (which, I have to admit, takes the voice of Jo) keeps searching for some sort of way for this to be a joke. Maybe Warner Bros. will say, “Just kidding! We did this because those words have the same initals as JK Rowling” or “Syke! We did this in the jocular spirit of Fred and George…”

This is more depressing than Russia’s war with Georgia.

Avatar Image says:

I hope this is some kind of sick joke….and they’re trying to put the blame elsewhere…they should be embarassed.

Avatar Image says:

I don’t get offended by much, but this is totally ridiculous. It’s all about the money right? Shameful! There’s more to life than making money. Especially to a studio that has billions already. I mean that even comes from the horse’s mouth, “We want to make more money”. So sad.

Avatar Image says:

I have a feeling they don’t want to try to compete with the release of Twilight…...... WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP!!!!!!

you must be jestin me ive waited 12 month nearly already cant wait another 8 come on pull yourselves 2gether pls xxxxx

They’re doing this because of the writer’s strike, plain and simple, it makes sense.

I absolutely cannot believe this. I refuse to believe this. You have to be joking. I know this is true, but it still seems surreal.

Avatar Image says:

But on the trailer there is NOvemeber. Guys it must be joke. DOn’t believe in this. I mean it just can’t be true!!!

Avatar Image says:

WB should make HBP longer now…The film needs to be at least 3 hours(they shouldn’t cut out as much as they normally would have)...that’s the least they can do for us fans!!!

Avatar Image says:

I’ll tell you where they can stick their “tent pole.” All of it is a very sad coverup for wanting more money in the summer….NOBODY is feeling anything from the writer’s strike anymore, thats such a low copout.

Avatar Image says:

WHAT. THE. bleep. Are they effing serious? Precisely what do they hope to gain by waiting eight months to release the movie, only to release it amid a load of other extremely enticing summer releases? For some reason, all the movies released in NOvember have always done extremely well. Merlin damn it all.

Avatar Image says:

“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.”

So we can make more money out of you poor souls, they mean. I say we boycott them, if they actually think they can treat us like cattle they should think it twice!

Avatar Image says:

Anyone to join me? Haha.

Avatar Image says:

I think I just died…

Avatar Image says:

People DIE in this movie!!!! It will be way too scary for “a family tent-pole release”... this sucks. I was planning on asking for 90% HP stuff for Christmas and now the stuff won’t be out and I don’t care about the stuff enough to pay for it with my own money. WB just lost some money already it has already backfired. I HATE WB!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Worst news in ages.

I guess that means the computer game is pushed back too?

I guess the only bright side (if there is one) is there won’t be such a big gap between it and DH Part I. Which, come to think of it, might be why they’re doing it.

Anita, sending emails is not going to help. This decision was made by the head of the studio, who has to ensure that his studio does well every year.

With the massive success of The Dark Knight, they have made their numbers for this year, HP6 next summer will secure the numbers they need for fiscal year 09.

And please, really? You’re not going to see it in the theatre? I don’t believe that for a second.. You guys need to calm down.

Avatar Image says:

Ugh. This is disgusting.

Avatar Image says:

OMFG WTF. Those are all the sentiments in my mind right now. This is effing insane. I’m in marketing, and I can understand the business side (from what I can gather from the press release), but still…this is pissing off so many fans. Summer can be great money-wise, but it can also be a curse—just look at what happened to Prince Caspian when it was shoved among other blockbusters! I don’t know what the summer schedule around HBP is, but moving it to summer may necessarily be wise.

Besides, the movie looks awesome, and I wanna see it now! :P

Avatar Image says:

Everything i wanted to say was said VERY WELL by Anita. She’s right. I hope J.K. Rowling gets on board and supports us, the fans. WB, You’re just being greedy. You make millions maybe billions off the HP franchise… Moving the release date to a later time will NOT make you more… In fact, according to all the fans who are very pissed with you… this move will make you MUCH less.

Avatar Image says:

I have been planning a huge Harry Potter party around the movie release date. I am furious!! I am still having my party as planned.

Completely ridiculous!!!! It´s been published in magazines like Entertainment Weekly and Empire Magazine that the release date is Nov. 21. Why the hell publish it if it isn´t true!!

Plus there was this magazine completely dedicated to half-blood prince in the expectation of it. If it is to be released on July they should have published all this info in april 2009

I can’t believe this! I’ve already sent my complaint to WB. Also not to be rude or anything but you guys are counting the months wrong. at least you are if you are in the US. july was just last month which means even if you don’t count the month of august, cause it is already half way though, that is 11 months not 8 months.

Avatar Image says:

I’m convinced this is, once again, about the almighty dollar!!!!!

What I don’t understand is why they ever chose a November release date to begin with?? Didn’t WB already know the HP films do better financially with a summertime release date?? Makes no sense to me. Sounds like Bellatrix has taken over WB.

Avatar Image says:

THIS IS SO UNFAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!! We wait WEEKS for the TRAILER, they give it to us, but now they’re all, “Well, hope that does you good, seeing as though it’ll be almost a YEAR before you see the actual movie.”

Avatar Image says:

oh, now they have done it! It would be foolish to even suggest that I could stay away when this does come out, but let the WB boycott begin, I will wait until all WB movies hit cable. No more WB movies for me, except of course HP – what a bunch of dirty skunks – they should be ashamed
