Screw Harry Twatterr and its money-first studio!

It's all about Twilight, right?!

As we previously mentioned, Harry Potter bosses, Warner Bros. moved the new Potter movie's release date from November 2008 to Summer 2009, much to the disappointment of Potter fanatics.

Well, something's come up that should cheer up you 'fantasy' film fans!

It's just been announced that Twilight is opening earlier — from December 2008 to 11/21/08.

Yay!

    Twilight may have replaced Harry Potter in the release slot…but it will never replace the harry potter slot in my heart.
    lolz.
    the release of twilight doesnt make me any less angry about harry potter opening in fucking july. I've been waiting for hp6 since the last movie came out.



  20. 20

    Loved the books!!! This movie is going to be great in the movies!!!



  21. 21

    TEAM EDWARD!!!



  22. 22

    NOTHING is better than HP, not even Twilight.



  23. 23

    EASY there Perez…I LOVE LOVE LOVE Twilight too , but you cannot deny how truly wonderful a story and cast of characters Harry Potter has in it.

  24. MICHA says – reply to this


    24

    YAY…Twilight rocks!



  25. 25

    Re: jennyr – aha I completely agree !



  26. 26

    i love harry but twilight has def. filled the void….

    soo excited for this movie but even more excited for the next ones after this because the other books are more interesting and action filled



  27. 27

    YES i love twilight!!!!!!!!



  28. 28

    i'm still pissed that kristen stuart got chosen. there has got to be better actresses out there than her.



  29. 29

    i HATE warner bros.
    WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY RELEASE SUCH AN AWESOME MOVIE AND THEN MOVE THE DATE BACK TO NEXT YEAR!!!
    ugh, they're so greedy. I love twilight, i've read all the books.
    the trailor looks awesome, i was skeptical at first b/c i didn't want robert pattinson to play edward b/c i didn't think he'd be hot enough, but from what i've seen, he doesn't do that bad of a job. Breaking Dawn sucked. And i wish twilight was pushed back till next year b/c i'd choose harry potter over twilight any day.



  30. 30

    Personally I would rather see harry potter

    The forth book in the Twilight series was a big disappointment



  31. 31

    OKAY. Stepheniemeyer.com says it's Nov. 21. And I love you SO much Perez, but she DID write the book and she IS in the know with Summit Entertainment, so I'm going to believe her. And I think the only reason they moved Twilight is cuz Harry Potter is scared shitless of Twilight!!! :D

  32. cait says – reply to this


    32

    screw harry potter, it's about time something took it over! the HP fans are just starting to panic since they know there's only three movies left until it goes into the history books and is left forever, like the first six star wars were. they hate the thought of something else being popular.

    and it's so awesome that they moved the release date up! my baby is due in december, and i was so terrified that i wouldn't get to see the movie xD



  33. 33

    its the 21st, not the 11th. Check your facts!



  34. 34

    Just got the following email from Summit Entertainment:
    Twilight has some great news, and we wanted you to be some of the first to know!

    Twilight will be in theaters THREE WEEKS SOONER than originally planned!!! It will open in theaters everywhere in North America on

    November 21, 2008!



  35. 35

    Yay! I found out last night.



  36. 36

    I absolutely LOVED all of these books, and seeing the movie earlier than anticipated is an even bigger plus. Thanks for the speedy update, Perez

  37. jla says – reply to this


    37

    I'm much more interested in seeing Robert Pattinson as Dali.



  38. 38

    YAY!!!
    This is great news!! :] I'm sad that Harry Potter isn't until next summer but Twilight definitely makes up for this!! I can't wait!



  39. 39

    Unbelievably amazing. December just seemed too far. TWILIGHT > Potter any time chumps! The End.



  40. 40

    The WORST book eve, but i actually think it will be better in film

  43. 43

    TWILIGHT SUCKS ASS!
    DO NOT EVEN SAY IT'S BETTER THAN HARRY POTTER BECAUSE HARRY POTTER IS ON ANOTHER FRIGGING LEVEL.
    Twilight=dumb cliches
    Harry Potter=best of life



  44. 44

    DONT SCARE ME LIKE THAT PEREZ!!! It's the 21st not the 11th! You almost caused me a heart attack!!!

    Re: jules09
    Your retarded and you should die.



  46. 46

    awesome I can't wait !!!!



  47. 47

    I can't tell you how pissed I am about this.
    Now, for all you ass-sucking sensitive freaks, what I'm about to express is an OPINION. You don't have to agree with me.
    Twilight is the worst series I have ever come across. It's nothing more than bad fanfiction written by a Mormon woman who lives vicariously through her characters. I've read better fanfiction not involving a bitchy, Mary Sue "protagonist", abusive vampire stalker boyfriend, and pedophile werewolf.
    Bella Swan is annoying, boring, helpess, bitchy, and a Mary Sue. For those who don't know what a Mary Sue is, look it up.
    The rest of the characters are flat and boring and have no personality.
    I don't understand why no one else thinks that vampires that sparkle is ridiculous. Vampires are supposed to be evil, they vant to suck your blooood. What the hell happened? Vampires don't fucking sparkle.
    I also would like to know what Smeyer was smoking when she thought up the name Renesmee. WTF Smeyer?
    And another thing. People are calling her the next JKR. I find it hilarious. 1 million reserved copies of Breaking Dawn does not make you the next JKR. 8.3 million does.
    For those who are ready to snap and kill me, remember. This is my opinion. I'm not forcing it on you, and I don't think you should follow along blindly, nodding your heads like a bunch of silly bastards. I'm just giving you the facts, and it's up to you to figure out if it's something you agree with.



  48. 48

    And by the way, Perez, do your research before posting your bullshit. The new Twilight release date is November 21st, not the 11th.



  49. 49

    omg yes! i love twilight!



  50. 50

    FUCKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This movie is going to be great and I'm so excited that we don't have to wait as long to see it anymore!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!



  51. 51

    NOO that stupid overated book!
    god vampires suck
    and i don't mean they suck blood



  52. 52

    LAMEEEEE
    harry potter all the way!
    fuck twilight.



  53. 53

    I won't be seeing this movie in theaters because I am too old to like twilight. I will buy the movie when it comes out on dvd though!



  54. 54

    TWILIGHT = AMAZING
    sooooo excited about this movie!



  55. 55

    I am so excited! Breaking Dawn was the best book in the series because something actually happened (after Twilight of course.) Meyer is not Rowling- nor does she try to be. I don't know what is with the f'd up comparisons. (I didn't really love Harry Potter.) The story is a great one. It certainly won't go down as classic literature but it is a very entertaining story that sucks you in. People are trying to make it into what it is not. Meyer knew the ending before she wrote New Moon and Eclipse. Those who don't like the ending don't have to read it.



  56. 56

    I'll tell you why Harry Potter got moved to July! They didn't want to be in competition with Twilight! Both films would have been in theaters at the same time! It's clearly about money, and Twilighters are truly hardcore fans!
    I'm glad Twilight is being moved because now I can go to the midnight showing. If it hadn't of moved, I wouldn't have been able to go because of finals! Booo college!



  57. 57

    Twilighters rejoice!



  58. 58

    Soooo…I totally agree with Mal. I decided to read these books to see what the craze was about. First off, Meyer is a pretty shitty writer compared to JKR…same descriptions over and over. The characters are one dimensional. Aww…Bella Swan loves Edward Cullen, she would die for him, blah, blah. She is kind of emo and completely dependent on him…and weak! She compares their love to that of Romeo and Juliet, but not really….all that they do when they are together is she asks him a bunch of questions. Its lame and boring. For the person who has never been in love I guess. I'd rather have my love than her's…its much more interesting. Its a rant….but I'm so annoyed by these books!



  59. 59

    P.S.
    I'm still upset that Harry Potter got moved! I'm still a big fan, but seeing Twilight get moved up is exciting! I was hoping to get both my HP and Twilight fix within two weeks of each other!



  60. 60

    FUCK TWILIGHT!!



  61. 61

    yessss!
    twilight is so much better than HP!!
    fuck hp!!

    perez you're obviously on crack.
    harry potter kicks twilight's ass anyday.
    twilight is for hopeless tweenage emo girls.



  63. 63

    Puh-lease.
    Twilight in no way compares to Harry Potter.

    Harry Potter reached out to a wide audience- young children and senior citizens alike.

    Twilight is for a teen crowd. Mostly teenage girls who only read it for Edward Cullen. It's a mediocre book with mediocre writing and really horrible characters.

    They should make a movie out of The Host. A way better novel by the same author.



  64. 64

    I LOVE HARRY POTTER… ALOT
    FOR ANYONE WHO READ BOTH KNOW THAT HP IS WAY BETTER
    SOO PEREZ SHUT UP**

    BUT TWILIGHT IS OKAY

    BUT ANYWAY

    WIZARDS PUT YOUR WANDS UP
    &&
    VAMPIERS SHARPEN YOUR TEETH

    ITS ABOUT TO BE A WHAT… MAGICAL FIGHT

    HAHAHA.:D



  65. 65

    Now I don't have to decide on which movie to see first :)

  71. 71

    I Love Harry Potter and Twilight! I was going to see both and I'm still going to see both. I'm going to see Twilight in the theater around 5+ times, because I know that I just can't get enough!!
    So, I have love for both and I'm not going to continue to compare the two with everyone because they are so different.
    I am SUPER excited about Twilight's release date moving up!! Hope they have a mid-night release!!! (how do we go about getting that a reality?)
    Viva la TWILIGHT!



  72. 72

    FUCK twilight.



  73. 73

    LOVE twilight!



  74. 74

    YES!! twilight completely fills the void of harry potter.. but its not like harry potter was moved because of twilight- so hp fans should chill out and stop blaming twilight for the move. im so glad its coming out 3 weeks earlly! YAY!!

    The two books aren't really comparable. Even Stephanie Meyer has stated that she loves the Harry Potter books, and that the two series are hardly similar. Twilight was written for the purpose of entertainment, and entertain it does. She doesn't deny that. Harry Potter was a fully realized story 10 years in the making, and Jo gave crucial thought to the plot, the characters, and the world as a whole. Twilight was fun to read, and kept me entertained. However, "Potter" has had such a strong impact, and kept me emotionally invested for nearly a decade. While Twilight is fun, Harry Potter has the depth, richness and charm that will sustain it as a work of literature.



  76. 76

    YESYESSSSS

    77

    Fuck Twilight. Shittiest fucking books of all time.



  78. 78

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS can't wait!!!!



  79. 79

    Re: *~*Mal*~* – your dumb :]
    thats MY opinion BITCH hahahahaaha!
    ok well i was just wondering.. if you think the books "sucked" so much then why'd you keep reading them??
    seriously? why?? maybe secretly you really LOOOVEEE them but no one can find out cuz they'll start to think you have a heart? hmm maybe..
    oh this is stephenie meyers creation so she can make vampires sparkle if she wants kay? yeah suck it up.. maybe you should right a book and see how well IT does..

    on another note.. i find it very funny that a lot of you are taking offense to what perez hilton says..
    i dont get mad.. im laughing and yeah HP is awesome
    but id take twilight over HP any day



  80. 80

    LOL I sent you that news from my foster moms email cause I saw you hadn't posted anything about it yet. Oh and ppl November is the 11th month! so he said 11/21/08 DUUUUH!

  81. moon says – reply to this


    81

    mhmm,
    the movie preview reminded me of the movie
    the covanent
    or something like that.



  82. 82

    I agree with Jewfus that The Host should be a movie. Sadly, it probably won't be until all 5 of the Twilight saga movies are made, since SM works with ppl on those. But yeah even though I love the Twilight saga, I actually think The Host was a lot better. Great story. Has you in tears at parts, and really scared for the characters at others. I don't agree though, that Twilight sucked.



  83. 83

    I ::heart:: Twilight



  84. 84

    Re: *~*Mal*~*

    so you say that it sucks and you bash the series and the author, but by reading what your complaints were, YOU READ THE WHOLE SERIES! You are a fucking LOSER! If you hated it soooo much, like you want us all to believe, you would have STOPPED READING IT after say, the FIRST book! But noooo you waited until Breaking Dawn came out, a couple weeks ago, and read it. Woooow buddy. Good going! OR you're just more of a loser and googled all the spoilers or looked at all the Twilight fangroups on Facebook. Which is just retarded.



  85. 85

    I am fuckin excited to see this movie - the sooner the better!!

    (gosh, rob pattinson on the BIG SCREEN? - I think Im gonna die because of too much hotness…]

    but please…PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!! stop comparing it to harry potter.
    they are so different…



  86. 86

    FUCK HP!



  87. 87

    I wouldn't compare one with the other… I love them both but they are different universes when you enter them. I am bummed about Harry, but stoked on Twilight..
    though I am just so nervous about how Twilight is going to be conceptualized… of course I am going and I am hoping to love it.. I just don't want it to be like an episode off the WB or something lame because the books are wonderful and deserve justice
    (it has some work to do to make it as great as how my mind told it as I read)
    Isn't that how it always goes? sigh.



  88. 88

    Fuck Twilight



  89. 89

    fuck this shit !!!!
    its a bunch of anne rice wannabe !!!!
    it will never be as awesome as harry potter !!



  90. 90

    Is no one else thinking that twilight is being moved for more money? Everyone is blaming WB for supposedly wanting more money, but the producers of Twilight probably moved the release date to take advantage of HP's move. Isn't it just ironic that the new release date is the exact same date that HP was supposed to come out? But no one blames Twilight, it's always HP that takes the fall. First of all, Harry Potter has had the 11/21 release date since before the 5th movie came out, and probably since before the Twilight movie was even confirmed for production. They are certainly not scared that Twilight will take away their ticket sales, considering that the film series has made over $4 billion. The producers of Twilight were smart to separate it far enough from the HP release to guarantee good ticket sales, but now that Harry Potter has been moved, they are taking advantage by moving it up, considering that so many people were already planning on seeing HP that weekend. They think, oh hey we'll take the money they were already going to spend! It's a good financial move, but don't say HP is moving for money reasons, because everything is motivated by money today. And HP is certainly not "scared" of Twilight, it's the first movie, they don't even have any numbers to compare yet. So think before you speak because a lot of you are coming off as extremely uneducated and idiotic.



  91. 91

    YESSS I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE!
    THANK GOD FOR WARNER BROTHERS!
    ♥ 11/21/08 ♥



  92. 92

    For those thinking that HP6 moving is all about money…you are RIGHT!
    for those that that think that Twilights move isnt about money you are WRONG!
    it's original release of dec.12 is a really dead spot to be put in, and so moving it to the weekend before thanksgiving gives a more than better chance of making a whole lotta cash. Also some saying shit about someone reading the whole series but not liking them, well if one wants to be fully informed and able to critique something, you actually have to have read the damn stories…correct? And really, no human/vampire romance will ever…EVER, top Buffy and Angel…heh



  93. 93

    Re: ~jules~ – you do realize that Robert Pattinson was on the big screen in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, right? My god, all of these people who claim to like both series are so oblivious to the fact that they used the same actor.



  94. 94

    Re: ~jules~

    THANK YOU!
    yes they are completely different,
    gawd thats starting to really bg me..



  95. 95

    Hey Perez. It looks like the film premieres on 11/21/08…per the website. Can't wait to watch it!



  96. 96

    Thank you Perez for posting Twilight news!! Twilight was NOT responsible for the HP release date delay. I am so stoked that Twilight is coming out early!!



  97. 97

    That's because Twilight is pure Awesomeness. Horray!



  98. 98

    Re: edwardyoudazzleme
    Okay, first off, you, my friend, just made my whole day. Your comment was hilariously stupid.
    To clear things up, I only read Twilight. I read the other books in synopsis online. I couldn't bear to torture myself and read all four books.
    There is nothing to love about Smeyer's shitty fanfiction.
    I don't take offense to Perez. That's just stupid. And so is he.
    You pick Twilight over Harry Potter? I pity people like you.
    Oh, and by the way, anyone who has a username "edwardyoudazzleme" basically has no life whatsoever other than insulting people online who you've ever met.



  99. 99

    Re: BillieJoesEntourage
    Wow, you're even funnier than the last person who insulted me.
    Since you know nothing about me and assume whatever you want, let me correct you on some things.
    I did not read the whole series. I read Twilight because my cousin recommended it to me. I didn't like it enough to read the rest of this so-called "saga". I couldn't stand Smeyer and her fanfiction.



  100. 100

    UGH that Kristen girl that plays bella SO fades in comparison so the amazing job i would have done. i can't even watch the movie with her playing bella.
