Warner Brothers is pushing the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to next year. It was slated to be released in November. When are they now releasing it? January? February? No. July. JULY! The studio says it has two reasons for the delay:

Our reasons for shifting 'Half-Blood Prince' to summer are twofold," Warner Bros. President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Horn said in a statement. "We know the summer season is an ideal window for a family tent-pole release, as proven by the success of our last Harry Potter film [released July 11, 2007], which is the second-highest-grossing film in the franchise, behind only the first installment.

The other reason is because the writer's strike:

Warner Bros. was still "feeling the repercussions of the writers' strike," which had affected scripts for other films, and changed "the competitive landscape for 2009.

The only thing that will make this any better -- and that would be only a tiny bit better -- would be if they still release the video game in November. **crosses fingers**
