I’ve already planned my November calendar and this one swims against it. From my trip, I’ll fly back to the city and catch the movie. But since it’s not going to happen anymore, I think going back from my vacation from cold cold north will not be very exciting as I hoped it would be.
Apparently there have been issues with the movie’s editing that they had to bring it back to the chopping board for a more fit version. The recent writers strike influenced the stability of the script prompting a need to rethink and innovate the loose ends. In addition, the motivation for a tricky change of date is that there won’t be anything big for U.S. Summer ’09. Perhaps what Warner Brothers is after is the same wave the Dark Knight rode on. It is hard to deny that the juggernaut that is Batman had things set for them having no equal competition in the market. Summer blockbuster almost always transmit bigger income as opposed to a fall release. Records show that Order of the Phoenix reeled in more than the other HP movies because it released mid-summer.
With the untimely change in the line up for November film release, Summit Entertainment saw the opportunity and jumped the track. They are now releasing Twilight on November 21 instead of December 12. This new-born phenomena authored by a supposed JK Rowling wannabe, saw a window difficult to pass. Twilight has been building enough momentum to be noticed, that cradling the very much peeved Potter fans became difficult to pass. Its potential is believed to be strong enough to make the Twilight Series a franchise.
With or without replacement, it’s hard to deny that so many fans are upset with Warner Brothers decision. It’s rather difficult to see past the fact that they’ve already made an announcement and we’re missing Harry Potter this 2008.
Twilight better be worth it.
