Vampire flick steals Harry Potter's release date

Twilight vacated its December 12th release date in favor of a new one: November 21st, which previously was set aside for the next Harry Potter film until Warner Bros. bumped the fantasy film to summer 2009. Said Summit's Rob Friedman to The Hollywood Reporter: "When Warner Bros. decided to move 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' to the summer of 2009, we saw a unique opportunity to slot in our film which has been gaining tremendous awareness and momentum over the past several months."
