Sooo, we could watch it online before the release date. Not that I would of course, because it looks SO much better in it’s full imax 3-D glory, but there will be so many leaked scenes before the US, UK, and Canada release on July 17.

I hope the film will also be released on the 15th in Belgium, ’cos in Belgium the films premiere on Wednesdays. XD

Belgium ? hey I live there. And if Italy releases it on July 15th, it will probably be released in our little country too.

woohoo, we will see leaked scenes from the movie before it is even releasd here in the UK

I bet we’ll get it on the 15th, too, they just won’t announce it this early. OoTP had it’s midnight premier two days before the actual release date as well.

It may have to do with the usual day of the week when movies open. In Germany, we´ll get it on the 16th. :) But sadly, it´s dubbed and only a few theatres carry the English Version – which is the Version that I prefer my HP to be. :)

Posted by hericus on January 22, 2009, 02:40 PM report to moderator

It’s a little bit strange that we will watch the movie here in Italy two days before the actual release date!!! we always have to wait days before we can see Potter movies…XD
