Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

tags: , ,

The sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, was supposed to be released 21 November 2008, but Warner Brothers film studios announced yesterday that the film’s release has been delayed until 17 July 2009, due to a corporate brain fart.

Despite this disappointing news, the winning movie poster was chosen by my readers anyway (see above).

Poster number one was the overwhelming favorite, as you can see from the final poll results;

Meanwhile in other news, millionaire teenaged actress Emma Watson, who plays Harry Potter’s brilliant sidekick, Hermione, earned straight-As in her A-level exams for her three chosen topics; English literature, geography and art. She will take a gap year to pursue acting before attending university.

    I feel so frustrated as do most Potter fans so I’m taking this opportunity to promote these Potter “cover-fiction” stories.

    They pushed back the release date because the “family oriented distributors” do not want “Harry” answering questions about his role in Equus, a play we all know he appears nude and has sex in.

    I find it interesting that poster #1 got such a huge tally. If it had been poster #6 or 7 would it have fared so well? I think you should have put all the posters out at once. This study is flawed!
