    What a load of crap. They are going to hold the movie for a 2009 summer release, simply because they want a summer blockbuster, even though it'll be done in time for November like shown in the trailer that was just released.

    Me too! Especially since they had already announced a release date for this year. Stuff like this is what pisses me off enough to not see it.

    All about making more money... I mean, it's Harry Potter, I don't really think it can make more then than it can now... It can only make so much.

    I actually planned on watching the movie instead of reading the book which has been unopened since November 2007. I have to read that book yet.

    Well, delays suck (remember Smash Bros?)

    Didn't the trailer only come out a few weeks ago? Why bother releasing a trailer if you're going to be complete pricks and delay it?! Some of these industry bosses need a good kicking sometimes. What a load of shit. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a die hard Harry Potter fan, I don't mind waiting for things and I don't have to watch things the second they come out, but waving something unsder the public's nose then saying "ha! it's ready... but you can't have it!" is just taking the piss.

    So let me guess, there's going to be fuck-all on around Christmas then?

    I heard a while back that it would be delayed in respect to that kid who acted in it who got stabbed.

    Bleh. They shouldve just added the last 2 books together.
    They were boring on their own and nothing really happens till the end of the 6th one.

    I liked the books.. the first 3 movies are not bad, in fact I started reading the books after seeing the 3rd movie. But they lost me on the 4th one.. that one sucked hard, they tried to squeeze that enormous book in a small 2 hours movie, the whole thing looks like a recap [​IMG]

    Didn't even tried to watch the 5th one.. and probably won't see this one too..

    Yeah I still don't get this move. It would have been all by itself if it was released in November but now it'll have to deal Transformers 2, Terminator 4, X-men Origins, and Star Trek (Maybe not so much) in the summer, albeit the movies will be released more than a few weeks ahead of Harry Potter but at least it would have been pretty much the sole blockbuster movie in November and pretty much the entire fall/winter season.

    I think the 5th one is my 2nd favourite because of the plot advancements. The first one is my favourite because it's so damn cute.

    Did no one else catch this? They're doing TWO MOVIES for the last book?! Jesus Christ. HBP is probably going to be four hours long at this rate.

    In a way, the books are better because they contain more detail than the movies. Like if you watch the movies, then read the books, you'll realize that the movies skipped some parts that the book had.

    Meh....I thought most of the movies sucked anyway, what with all the stuff cut out of them. I understand why that is, but still.

    I read all the books. I liked them. I'll tell ya though, if I had all that magical ability I certainly wouldn't be a good guy.

    Gave up watching the money long ago. Read the books, whats the difference except they leave alot of stuff out, and having to pay more to watch it again.

    And bigger download size.

    Then there is no excuse for it to be a piss ass movie with plot holes and a sub 3 hour showing time. Seriously, this is what pisses me off about the films is they don't want to have the little kiddies sitting for 3 hours watching a movie. I saw so many fucking kids who sat through Lord of the Rings without whining about it, kids are obsessed with Harry Potter, there is nothing wrong with the films being longer and filling in all the bloody plot holes. There has been no character development in terms of relationships and a lot of the good actors are winding up with bit parts now because they focus on all the adventure shite which is important, but there is so much other stuff in the books that they miss in the films.

    I am sorry but if the film is done, put it out on time, if you are going to delay it then make it better shitheads.
