IMAX Delay for Half-Blood Prince

Half-Blood Prince posterWarner Bros. may be sticking firm to its third Half-Blood Prince release date, but that won’t prevent delays for the film.

Due to a conflict with a previously scheduled blockbuster, most IMAX theaters (aside from one in New York in one in LA) will not be able to show Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince until July 29. That equates to a two-week delay from the July 15 premiere.

What will be occupying those theaters up until that point? . The Paramount feature has a month-long commitment starting with its June 26 debut.

New Half-Blood Prince Posters and Trailer

Now that you’ve been gifted with a new due date, let’s present you some new eye candy.

In this latest trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (you can view the others here, here and here), we get a little bit of romance, evil and humor all thrown together.

Will girls really spell the end of Weasley? Where will this kiss between Harry and Ginny lead? And what is this mission that Voldemort has Malfoy on? (Based on Draco’s sinister look after the jump, it apparently can’t be good.)

Harry Potter Gets Another Release Date

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

An eight month-delay has just been shortened…by two days.

After repositioning Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to open on July 17, Warner Bros. has changed its mind again. The film, once scheduled for a November 2008 release, will now open on July 15.

Why? The studio just likes to get a jump start on those earnings.  (Order of the Phoenix also opened on a Wednesday back in 2007.)

Meanwhile, a date for the future Harry Potter film can now be penciled in as well: July 15, 2001. That’s also the slot tentatively set aside for Paramount’s The Avengers. Since the day chosen is not a Wednesday, I’m guessing someone will be doing some tinkering in about a year from now.

Trailer #3 for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Despite the tone of the first two trailers, the 6th Harry Potter installment is really not as dark as it seems. At least, not entirely. This clip proves there are a few moments of levity to be found in the upcoming sequel. (It’s amazing what an “infatuation” potion can do to an hormonal teenager.)

Half-Blood Prince makes its way into theaters on July 17, 2009.

Quantum of Solace Gets a Date Shift

Quantum of Solace

Who knew Harry Potter’s departure would have such repercussions?

When Entertainment Weekly produced last week’s Fall Movie Preview edition (the one with that bespectacled wizard on the front), I don’t think they anticipated having such outdated information. Unfortunately, Warner Bros.’ decision to move to July 2009 has set off a series of schedule changes.

Twilight Adjusts Start Date

Twilight PosterIf Harry Potter’s calendar shift has you wondering what you’ll be doing on November 21, you’re in luck. Another film adaptation is more than happy to occupy that vacated spot.

Twilight, based on the Stephenie Meyer novel, was originally scheduled to open on December 12. Now, the teen vampire movie will premiere three weeks earlier, giving me less time to stare at the unopened book on my nightstand. This announcement immediately followed Warner Bros.’ decision to move to next summer.

According to Summit Entertainment’s CEO, the studio (supposedly) doesn’t expect to generate the same amount of interest as that teen wizard. “We by no means are trying to fill the shoes of the incredible Potter franchise for 2008, rather we are just looking to bring the fans of Stephenie Meyer’s incredible book series the film as soon possible from a programming perspective,” said Rob Friedman.

Well, it’s probably smart of Summit’s execs not to set their expectations too high. November 21 is also the new date for Bolt, an animated movie starring teen sensation .
