Following Warner Bros’ decision to move the next Harry Potter movie’s release from November 2008 to July 2009, Hollywood studios have decided to play the “Release date shuffle game”. First Twilight is pushed up, and now Quantum Of Solace is pushed back…huh?! Yes, the next Bond movie will now open on November 14th in the US instead of November 7th. Mr Jeff Blake, who works marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures had this to say:
We believe Nov. 14 is a great date that allows us to play straight through Thanksgiving and right into Christmas. We believe this decision will give the public a wider opportunity to see the film over the holiday.
Ok Jeff, whatever you say. Fun fact however: Quantum Of Solace will open in France and the UK on October 31st, and in more than half the world between November 5th and November 7th. So I’ll see the movie half a month before anyone in America does, high five to me!
