Warning: The following rant has been rated R.
If you caught my note on my foul mood in my just-posted P.E.S.T., this is why.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, after such a delay with the teaser trailer, after finally releasing said teaser trailer with both 'THIS YEAR' and 'NOVEMBER' pasted at the end of it, and after sending out confirmations of international release dates for the movie, Warner Bros. has decided to push back HP6 from November 21, 2008 to JULY 2009!
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
And they don't even bother to come up with a good excuse, either. They basically, in so many words, came out and said "we're doing it for the money." Like Harry-fuckin-Potter needs to be in the summer time to make money, especially after the last one did so well. Seriously, out of the last 5 movies, 3 of them have been in November, and they've all done amazingly well. In fact, the one that made the least amount of money, Prisoner of Azkaban, was the first one to be released in July. They're already into post-production, so there's nothing extra they need to do... all they're doing is sitting on it until next summer.
Warner Bros. is about to get the biggest backlash of their lives.
