Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Postponed

“Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince”, which was slated to be released in November this year, has been postponed to July, 2009.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is because:

Warners president Alan Horn blamed last winter’s 100-day WGA strike in large part for the shift, suggesting all the major studios have been hurt in the development of new tentpole films for next summer.

“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,” Horn said. “We agreed the best strategy was to move ‘Half-Blood Prince’ to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tentpole release for midsummer.”

Urgh. This will surely piss off a lot of people. Now we have to wait for another seven months for the movie.

Let’s just hope the movie will be up to people expectations.

Tiger playing badminton? Looks like a nudge towards Malaysia since Malaysia’s national animal is the Malaya tiger. Best of luck to Lee Chong Wei for the men’s single title!
