As readers are aware, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" arrives in theaters July 17, 2009.
Of course this sort of a “well, DUH!!” moment!
And Wolverine should be great, too!!!!!
So shocking, NOT! LOL ! Go Harry Potter!!!! I never knew Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons would be made into a motion picture, can’t wait to see that as well… but yeah, Harry Potter!!!
Of course it is! It was the most anticipated movie for 2008 too, but we all know what happened to that so of course now that we suddenly have to wait another year before we can see it our anticipation is going to be through the roof. I mean come on did you geniuses over at movietickets.com seriously need a poll to tell you that one? HP will always come out on top!
How is it that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (apparently the most anticipated movie of 2009) FAILED to make the top 3 choice for both females and males? And Night at the Museum 2, the sixth most anticipated movie of 2009 MADE the top three choices for both females and males. I don’t get it.
Of course it is better than other sequels, because Harry Potter is seven parts of a whole rather than- well that was cool, let’s try and draw it out. Its certainly the movie I’m most anticipating in 2009, though I did not vote in this poll.
I think Indiana Jones was pretty anticipated as well.
This made me realize how many bad films are out now that night at the museum 2 would make a most anticipated list.
