Bad News For Harry Potter Fans

| Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

harrypotterwizards__opt.jpg

There will be NO Harry Potter movie this November.

We repeat.

No Harry Potter movie this November, as previously expected and announced.

The popular franchise's release has been postponed to July 2009, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The studio, Warner Bros. is blaming the Writers' Strike.

Because of the strike, some of the big 'tentpole' movies they were counting on for Summer 2009 won't be ready, so they'll need HP to get them through next year's big season.

They say:

"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 'Half-Blood Prince' to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer."

Don't worry!

We're expecting the Twilight movie coming out in the fall to give us a good fix!

    WTFF?? TWILIGHT IS NOT GONNA FILL THE GAP FOR HARRY POTTER FOR GODSAKES!! Twilight is gonna be GAY and NOTHING compares to the books! One look at Robert Pattinsons face will ruin the movie, as well as the book for you.
    GOSH.
    Harry Potter all the way.



  22. 22

    Shitty! And apparently Dan Radcliffe is on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly for their fall movie preview issue. They must be PISSED! But now I guess that issue will be a bit of a collector's item!

    As much as I love Twilight, don`t even compare Harry Potter to Twilight. Twilight is beyond cheesy and predictable ..
    I was looking forward to a good fantasy movie this year, I hope they get their dicks straightened out and decide to move Harry Potter a little earlier. :|

  50. 50

    fuck all of you!

    it sucks balls that the HP movie has been moved,
    but that doesnt mean you have to take it out on twilight!
    twilight was better than the HP series, and the movie is going to be pretty close to the book.



  51. 51

    CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY!

    BYE HARRY POTTER, HI TWILIGHT =/



  52. 52

    this is bad.



  53. 53

    this is the most horrible fucken bullshit ever… fuck you warner bros… big mistake!!!



  54. 54

    r u kidding me a Harry Potter movie in the summer season and like a year later????



  55. 55

    In my OPINION Twilight is a great series. Sephani Meyer is a great author. As far as comparing her to J.K Rowlings goes, in MY OPINION Stephani is a much more creative author. Bella and Edward are wonderful characters that reach out to fans and touch the heart. I have tried reading Harry Potter and I got through maybe a few chapters, but unfortunatley I lost interest fairley quickly. To all those haters just remember YOUR OPINION DOESNT MAKE IT A FACT.



  56. 56

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Even though the movies aren't a tenth as good as the books, the midnight release for this was just about all I had left to look forward to, as there are no more books.

    Well, there's Tales of Beedle the Bard, but that doesn't count.

    *sniffles*



  57. 57

    WHAT ?!



  58. 58

    go to hell all the guilty people!!! beware!!! I am going to become an assassin if harry potter is not ready for november of this year!!!!! i love hp and i won't wait until next year!!!



  59. 59

    Ugh. Fuck Warner Brothers! Fuck the writers, the strike, and their greed! Give me my damned Harry Potter.



  60. 60

    NO ! i was SOOOO excited ! WTF WB?! WTF.



  61. 61

    awww i love harry potter



  62. 62

    as much as i DO love harry potter, i can live with it. But a postponed twilight would be HELL! Welcome to the Twihard side Perez!



  63. 63

    WTF! NOO! I HATE THIS INDUSTRY!



  64. 64

    FUCK TWILIGHT! I WANT HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!



  65. 65

  66. 66

    NUTHiNG iS BETTER THAN HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!
    MAN iVE BEEN PLANiNG 2 GO SiNCE LAST YEAR!!!!!



  67. 67

    NOOOOO. This is terrible. Fans, including me, have been waiting for this movie for so long. First they release the trailer way later than usual and now this? It's like they don't take the fans into consideration at all. I know I will be writing a very nasty letter to Warner Bros and I hope all other HP fans do so too. I'm SO upset.



  68. 68

    NO! Now what am I going to do for Birthday:(

    defintely not Twilight! That book is overated and stupid!



  69. 69

    What a bummer. Oh well.



  70. 70

    FUCK THAT SHIT. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO RELEASE IT NOVEMBER AND JULY EACH TIME, RESPECTIVELY. FUCK WARNER BROTHERS.



  71. 71

    PS, THE WRITERS STRIKE THING IS BULLSHIT, DUE TO THE FACT THAT EVERYTHING CONCERNING HARRY POTTER IS DONE IN THE UK AND THEY AREN'T IDIOT ENOUGH TO HAVE HAD ONE THERE.



  72. 72

    So this totally sucks, but fear not Potter fans, remember the Beetle Bard book is coming out in December! More of JK Rowling's genius will be displayed. The movie does look super good, oh well.



  73. 73

    Twilight is going to be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! :]
    I can't wait until Harry Potter though.

    I love Edward Cullen.



  74. 74

    bastards… I was going to see the 6th movie for my birthday =(



  75. 75

    Fuck shitty vampire fanfic written by a 30 year old nerd. I want Harry!



  76. 76

    That totally sucks!!! Damn writer's strike fucked up my Grey's season and now Harry Potter, too!!!



  77. 77

    I AM SO MAD
    THIS IS HORRIBLE
    HORRIBLE
    HORRIBLE :(



  78. 78

    now i want to avada kedavra myself!!!!!!!!!! and I am not joking!!, why do they do this fans!!! i rather be death than wait one year



  79. 79

    CAN'T WAIT FOR TWILIGHT!!!!! Perez isnt COMPARING Twilight with Harry Potter, he's only saying that at least a good fantasy movie will hold us over till June. Ugh, get over yourselves.



  80. 80

    I WAS SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS MOVIE!! im am so depressed right now, i was all siked and i had already worked out this plan to go to the midnight showing with my cousin!
    and…
    twilight compare to harry fucking potter? no chance of it being anywere as close to as good to harry potter!!



  81. 81

    wtf! that sucks! i love harry potter!



  82. 82

    Damn, so this totally happened BECAUSE OF the Twilight movie…Twilight was scheduled to come out just after Harry Potter so that it would rule it in the box office..clearly, Warner Brothers realized…so then they moved it.

    Yet another reason to hate Twilight. Screw it.

  83. Sola says – reply to this


    83

    They can't make the film because of the writers strike? huh how about they just do something crazy like, oh I don't know fallow the book for once?

    the maybe they could make the HP movies actually as good as the books…

    oh and who the fuck is waiting for Twilight anyways?
    That Stephenie Meyers can go fist herself…



  84. 84

    that is soooo dumb!
    i mean c'mon its ready to go
    it just needs to be released!



  85. 85

    Re: Daydreamer – Neither does your opinion. So screw off.



  86. 86

    NO!!! i was looking forward to HBP… :[
    well, at least I love Twilight!!!!!!!



  87. 87

    wtffff
    thats so lamee!!!



  88. 88

    oh man im sooooooooooo pumped for the twilight movie, i love both, but maybe since hp is coming out later twilight will have less competition. wooooooot!



  89. 89

    Gah… this is so much BS. They're going to make as much in the summer as they would in November… it's freaking Harry Potter.



  90. 90

    i dont understand why people are taking it out on twilight, i know its upsetting but you cant blame twilight for delaying the release!



  91. 91

    Shut up, Perez. I may like Twilight, but Harry Potter is what I CRAVE.



  92. 92

    WHAT?!?!?!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  93. rosha says – reply to this


    93

    puhlease perez! Twilight so does NOT compare to Harry Potter. The movie looks awful and the books are poorly written. Twilight is my VERY guilty pleasure and Harry Potter is my reason for reading



  94. 94

    those who haven't read twilight are IGNORANT sitting there saying oh it's not as good as twilight; read it before you start commenting. those who are saying the plot is for fourteen year olds are also IGNORANT, because if you knew anything about it you would know stephenie meyer wrote it for young ADULTS, as in 18+.

    i love harry potter and twilight, but FUCK, don't be IGNORANT about it.



  95. 95

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    i just died a little bit inside.



  96. 96

    Bummer… I was really hoping to see Twilight kicking HP's ass on the box office in December…

  97. moon says – reply to this


    97

    can i get NOOOOOO!



  98. 98

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!



  99. 99

    HA! It's probably because they knew Twilight would out-rate them!



  100. 100

    For the record………………..THIS FUCKING SUCKS!!!! Im uber bummed.
