I’m excited and yet devastated. I have been planning my trip to Phoenix. AZ for weeks now because it has the closest IMAX, and alas, IMAX release is pushed back..

P.S. Phoenix is a 6hr drive from home….

Well, that makes sense to me, a Brit. I mean, the films/books are getting darker and a few of those scenes will be scary for younger fans (ie – the Inferi and Katie Bell). But still, will be AWESOME!!!
