The next installment was just pushed to Summer 09. No other reason than a business decision. Warner Bros. decided that the money making beast that is known as Harry Potter could do much better in the summertime.

I was really looking forward to watching this at the end of the year. Especially after catching the awesome trailer.

Oh well!

This is some super depressing news. I thought it was time to strike while the iron was hot, and by that I mean that the fifth movie did so well in the BO (it was second only to the first film). The competition is much more fierce in the summer, which I think could hurt HP's drawing power. Of course, that is dependent on what movies open around the time of the HBP film.

At least that means there will be less of a wait time between HBP and the first Deathly Hallows movie.

The way the thing has been spun is that Summer 2009 is looking very barren due to the writers strike, so they think HP will have a chance to have a pretty clear field. Of course, I can't imagine much coming this winter that would be any more competition, but hey, maybe in the summer they can get repeat business from the kids out of school and bump it up into that $350-400 million range.

the only films I feel that will hurt Half blood prince are

Transformers 2 Opening june 26

Iceage 3 / Land of the Lost both on July 4

G I JOE in August.

So by the time that Half Blood price comes out Mostly all the other films that could have hurt it ( Dragon Ball, Wolvereen, Hanna Montania, ) would neather be out or not out yet ( Night at the Musieum 2 and where the wild things are)

One of the other reasons mentioned is that with Dark Knight is doing so well that Warner Brothers does not need the Harry Potter revenue, but could use it better next year, especially since otherwise their revenue would be likely to dip next year without a replacement for the Dark Knight's revenue.

Well, it's summer and I'm seeing a lot of movies. Not just the big summer blockbusters, either. These are the benefits of being situated in a part of Boston with easy access to a few art house movie theaters along with big ass stadium seating multiplexes....
