With Warner Bros. Pictures having delayed "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince" eight months from November 21st to July 17th 2009, it's understandable
that many 'Potter' fans are upset.
In fact they've been so vocal in expressing that resentment that Warner
Bros. President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Horn has released an official
response to all those complaints and here it is below:
"Many of you have written to me to express your disappointment in our
moving "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" to Summer 2009.Please be assured
that we share your love for Harry Potter and would certainly never do anything
to hurt any of the films. Over the past 10 years, we have nurtured and protected
each film, and the integrity of the books upon which they are based, to the best
of our ability.The decision to move "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" was
not taken lightly, and was never intended to upset our Harry Potter fans. We
know you have built this series into what it is, and we thank you for your
ongoing enthusiasm and support.
If I may offer a silver lining: there would have been a two-year gap
between "Half-Blood Prince" and the much-anticipated first part of "Harry Potter
and the Deathly Hallows," which opens in November 2010.So although we have to
wait a little longer for "Half-Blood Prince," the wait from that film until
"Deathly Hallows" will be less than 18 months. I am sorry to have disappointed
you now, but if you hold on a little longer, I believe it will be worth the
President, Chief Operating Officer
You can take your "silver lining" and shove it directly up your ass. Please do not stop until you find your head up there somewhere. Leave the silver lining, and remove your head.
Please, Warner delays a highly anticipated movie to make themselves more money and they ask for understanding? Fuck you, Warner Brothers.
