There is news today from WB Italy, who announced that the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film will be opening in Italy on Wednesday, July 15, 2009. Paolo Ferrari, the President of Warner Bros. Pictures Italia, is quoted as saying in regards to the upcoming release:
"It's really important to support theater's business in hot months,
and so [this] event next summer WB will play a great role. Harry Potter had
demonstrate[d] his power on the July box office, and I'm sure he will
confirm his [extraordinary] potential."
As readers will remember
, the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
, will hit theaters in the US, UK, and additional major international markets on July 17, 2009.

for the tip.
Hopefully this means that Australia will get it early, too, rather than nearly 20 days later, as was scheduled for the 2008 release. On IMDB, it says we get it on the 16th, but I’m not sure of their sources, because they have Italy listed as 17th July.
Thats cool. But I wish it was comming out on the 15th here. :( But hey we all had to wait almost a year when they pushed it back so 2 days is fine I guess.
i forget, will tHBP be available in 3D ??
aanywho, lucky Italy..i’ll definitely have to stay away from Leaky and HPforums for a few daays to evade spoilers =))
I’m optimistic that HBP will be released in US, CA, UK, and other places on the 15th. It means a longer opening weekend, and that certainly helped with the Order of the Phoenix. Why wouldn’t WB take it up again if it helped them before?
The date is also changed to July 15th, in Denmark. Warner Bros. Denmark (Sandrew Metronome) has stated that the premiere will most likely be moved from July 17 to July 15 around the world: http://azkaban.dk/index.p hp?option=com_content&tas k=view&id=822&Itemid=1

YAY!!! For once, I’m happy to be Italian!
I’ll probably look at the leaked videos anyway. =) So this is good for me. xD
thats a bit weird…. why Italy?
gahhh no fair
You guys should stop complaining about two days! Originally it was going to come out in Australia one month later! But now, of course, it is coming out on July 16th here in Australia :)
I don’t watch anything, on YouTube, anyway! Not movies…trailers, yes. Movies, no. I’d rather wait until the 17th [it’s only two days later] and get the whole “theater/opening day” experiance!
Ahh! Lucky Italians. I might just have to convince my family to vacation there this summer…
I’m still miffed WB put in the ‘attack on the Burrow’ scene in HBP – so stupid – there’s an attack on the Burrow in DH, why not have it there?
I wonder why they get to see the movie two days before the UK and the US. Oh, well lucky them. I don’t think I can live that long!:(
