Alan Horn addresses HARRY POTTER 6 delay complaints

A pathetic non-apology from the WB President.

I'm not really a Harry Potter fan but I have to say Warner Bros. decision this late in the day to delay the next movie in the series just three months before it was due to be released worldwide and for the film to be completely in the can is just sickening. No matter what pathetic wording WB President Alan Horn attempts to conjure up here, he made a bad move. A greedy move for money with not a single thought in mind for what is best for the fans, the same goes with the decision to split the last movie in two.

Here's Horn's statement after a massive number of complaints from fans...
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 wait. Alan Horn President, Chief Operating Officer Warner Bros.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will now be released on July 17th 2009 instead of it's November 21st 2008 original date.
