Warner Bros announced today that Harry Potter and The Queers with the Other Thing or whatever it’s called has been bumped from their fall lineup and pushed all the way back to July 2009.
In an irony sure to set blogger hearts beating giddily [Editor’s Note: False.], the film graces the cover of EW’s new fall preview issue, which hits stands today. EW and Warner Bros. share a parent company, but they clearly do not share, you know, important friggin’ information.
Some outside the studio are already pointing out that moving Half-Blood will also stop next year’s profits from looking seriously underwhelming after the phenomenal success of The Dark Knight. “They don’t need the money this year anymore,” says a rival studio exec. “When a movie overperforms the way Dark Knight has, you really don’t need Harry Potter in the fall.” [HollywoodInsider …hehe]
Wow, exciting, right? I can’t believe I have to wait almost a year to not see this. On the plus side, there’s at least a 50% greater chance that Daniel Radcliffe shows up to the premiere with eyeliner and trackmarks.
