Public Enemies and Harry Potter will duke it out in July!


VERSUS



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?

Public Enemies all the way. As far as I'm concerned Harry Potter movies are great for renting. Public Enemies is going to be FANTASTIC on the big screen. But I guess I'm especially inclined to want to watch my Movie Star. Oh and that other actor. . .what's his name?

PE for me!!! I'll see Harry, but probably not at the theatre...

PE first, then Harry. Some movies you just HAVE to see on the big screen...IMHO. Then buy both DVD later! LMAO

I have never seen any Harry Potter, so it will definitely be Public Enemies!! Johnny beats out anyone!!

PE all the way - sadly I have not watched one minute or read one page of Harry Potter. Not anti-Harry at all though - just never appealed to me!!

I try not to go to the movies because it is too expensive. So I am saving up money to go see Public Enemies. I will buy Harry Potter on DVD to complete my collection along with buying PE on DVD when it comes out. I hope they put PE on the Ultra Screen that would be cool.

I know exactly how you feel. When I heard HBP was moved to July, all I could think was "what about PE?" I have to agree with you on the movie choice also. Public Enemies has much more sentimental value than Harry, but I will see Harry in the theater sometime, just not before PE!
