I am a major Harry Potter fan, as many of you know. Not only do I think that J.K. Rowling wrote the most amazing set of books, but the movies have captavated audiences everywhere. To me, the books seem to have really taught children around the world that there is a lot more to life than just watching the tv.
I've been following the making of the Public Enemies movie since March, and met a whole bunch of great people since it all started. (Including Mr. Johnny Depp) It is going to be a GREAT movie...and I can't wait to see it!!
*now correct me on dates if I am wrong*
Harry Potter was set to premier in November, but much to my dissapointment....Warner Bros has pushed the release date back to 7/17/09. This has made a lot of avid Potter fans a bit disgruntled....including me.
July of 2009 is going to be THE month for movies for sure! Public Enemies has a tenative release date of 7/1/09.
So, if 7/1 is the release date for Public Enemies...and 7/17 is the Potter debut....we are going to have one heck of a blockbuster summer!! There is no doubt in my mind that Public Enemies will get some major attention, and even earn some of the actors an oscar nomination....but can it keep up the grosses if Harry Potter comes to the foreground? The time between the 2 movies is just over 2 weeks, and I would love to see Public Enemies claim the #1 spot for longer than that! Now don't get me wrong....I LOVE the Potter films, but Public Enemies holds a special meaning to me, and to a lot of other people!
If release dates change, and the 2 movie release dates end up coinciding with one another.....I have to say Public Enemies will be the movie that I go to see! (Sorry Harry)
What about you guys?
