Twilight Takes Potter's Old Release Date: Nov. 21!

Twilight Takes Potter's Old Release Date: Nov. 21!

Yet more movie release date changes!

The other highly anticipated film with an enthusiastic fan base, Twilight, will now open on Nov. 21 instead of Dec. 12.

Twilight is taking over the weekend that was reserved for Potter-mania up until yesterday, when the release date for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was pushed all the way to July 17, 2009.

So, we get some Twilight sooner than expected and we've gotta wait a while longer for the next Potter movie. What a crazy week. I'm writing all my release dates in pencil from now on.

Yeah, he was a perfect Cedric. I also thought Oliver Wood in the first and second movies was really cute, too.

I'm only about 1/4 through reading Twilight, and I've read all the Harry Potter books. I like both, although I think I'll always prefer Harry. I was disappointed to hear they're postponing releasing HP, I was really looking forward to it. But Twilight will be good replacement. I am interested in all this talk about Twilight being a huge step back for feminism. I haven't gotten that deep into the story yet, or maybe this would make more sense to me. What is it about Bella that makes her a poor literary figure for girls to look up to?

Yes! I'm just hearing this news and this fills the void that HP left when they up and decided to move it to July!!!!!!!!

Maybe I am just a different kind of feminist. Maybe it is because I am older and a parent. The thought that my daughter would find "love" like that in her teens scares the sh!t out of me. Actually, the thought that any woman might. And I took women's studies too. Just a while back.

"Amen phasekitty. The books are so poorly written and it is a step faaaar back for feminism. It scares me a little how many girls have become obsessed witht these books." I find that interesting knowing someone (my sister ) who is a feminist and studying womens studies and she loves the stories. I am not really surprised at the reactions though.

I loved both the books. I'm not so sure I'll go all the way and say that Twilight is the next Harry Potter. But to me these books can't even really be compared. I loved Twilight for the romance and the whole vampire thing just gave the extra edge. I loved Harry Potter for the magic and drama of it all. This is just how I feel. I am glad that Twilight was moved up but super sad that HP got pushed back.

I don't have a problem if you like both Twilight and Harry Potter. I like Twilight, but I LOVE Harry Potter. I just don't think there should be a comparison, they are completely different. For instance, Harry Potter appeals to both boys and girls, while Twilight has a largely female fanbase. The final book of the Twilight series sold 1.3 million copies on its first night in the US, and I believe the final book of the Harry Potter series sold about 11 million copies in contrast. And even on PopSugar, the news that the HP movie was being pushed back had more than 60+ comments, the Twilight movie's release date being pushed UP has yielded less than half of that amount thus far :)

I was (and still am) unhappy about Harry Potter being moved but am very happy that I can see Twilight sooner.I read that the reason HP was changed so that the last 2 installments will be closer to this next movie.I'm just glad they are doing 2 for Hallows.Lots of questions answered for those who only like the movies.

this is such crap. i am a fan of twilight but i am so much more a fan of harry potter and this makes me so mad. it is so obvious that the studios were afraid that when twilight comes out only 2 weeks after harry potter that hp will lose its top spot at the box office because twilight has a big fan base. also the only reason that twilight was coming out in december was because it needed to space itself out from harry potter. this makes me really mad, not only do i have to wait till july to watch harry potter, but twilight, something that cannot even be compared to harry potter has taken its spot! i'm peeved and i would boycott both hp and twilight if i didn't absolutely love hp and wasn't so intrigued by twilight the movie.

I'm excited that it's being pushed up. My friend and I actually asked for Dec. 12 off from our jobs so we can go the midnight screening. Looks like we're going to have to change it.

Exactly, we people are having our "own" opinion. Just because it differs from yours, doesn't mean we should "get over it".
