IMAX Corporation released a very short, very pointed statement late Thursday night after news broke about the nine month delay of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth installment in the Harry Potter film series.
Trying to keep things upbeat, IMAX says they’re confident a replacement will be found for Harry Potter on the super-big screen this holiday season.
“Reflecting today’s announcement that the release date of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has moved to July 2009, IMAX Corporation confirmed it is already exploring alternative titles for this year’s holiday season and is confident it will secure a solid film for the IMAX theatre network.”
“The Company looks forward to announcing a replacement film as soon as possible.”
I bet you 10 bucks it’s Twilight. Twenty?
