The Half-Blood Prince will now come out in July 2009


The latest Harry Potter movie will not come out in November.

The Half-Blood Prince has been pushed back by Warner Bros to July 2009.

Execs say they want to ensure it is a summer blockbuster.

‘The picture is completely, absolutely, 100% on schedule, on time,’ Alan Horn, president of the studio, tells the BBC.

‘There were no delays. I’ve seen the movie. It is fabulous. We would have been perfectly able to have it out in November.’

Daniel Radcliffe, 19, plays boy wizard Harry in the fantasy movies.

Meanwhile, Emma Watson, 18, who plays Hermione Granger, got straight As in her A Levels for English literature, geography and art.
