The title of this post is just one of the many poorly executed Harry Potter-themed jokes that will be circulating the Interwebs on the heels of this terrible, terrible news (Please feel free to come up with your own crappy Potterism headline for this crappity crap of Hollywood chain-yankery). Not since The Great Bigfoot Hoax of August 2008 has something struck such a deep and sorrowful chord.
In the article I read, the head of Warner Brothers cited a few boring reasons for the shift from November of this year to July of next and also used the term “tent-pole release” a lot. Interestingly enough, John Q. Studiomogul claims that the first of two installments of “Deathly Hollows” is still on for November of that same year, only four months later. Truly 2009 will be the year that J.K. Rowling will be able to construct a thirty story penis out of money, and then build an entire surgical team of giants out of money to circumsize it and pitch the foreskin into the billion dollars she already has.
And don’t forget to check out the trailer for the movie you’ll have wait a year to see!
