Stupid Warner Bros, thinking HP 6 can be the next Dark Knight if they stick it in the summer... movies released in the winter make more money over the long run, I believe. Just look at the history of the HP franchise.

I just hope they won't use that as an excuse to delay the other 2, too..

I think, they were thinking they didn't want it out at the same time that Dan Radcliff is playing in Equus. (Bry, pointed that out when I started a thread about it, apparently I'm slow, too. Cause I never saw Zae's thread.)

He's in love with a horse and does nude scenes. I think they would like it better if people didn't think about the two things at the same time....

Actually, I bet they love the publicity; didn't he do that a few years ago as well? Didn't seem to hurt the last film...

But oh well. No matter what, we have to wait longer... :mad:

No, he just got the part, but Equus is beginning its run in November. And no, I doubt it helps the film.

Well, I got this from wikipedia...

Next, Radcliffe opened on 27 February 2007 in a revival of Peter Shaffer's play Equus as Alan Strang, a stable boy who has an obsession with horses. The role generated significant pre-opening media interest and advance sales topped two million pounds, as Radcliffe appeared nude in one scene in the play.[17] Radcliffe's performance received positive reviews,[18] as critics were impressed by the nuance and depth of his against-type role.[19] Radcliffe's last performance in Equus took place on June 9, 2007. When the production transfers to New York City in 2008, Radcliffe will reprise the role of Alan Strang along with Richard Griffiths, who was in the Equus production in London and plays Vernon Dursley in the Harry Potter series;[20][21] he has stated that he is nervous about repeating the role on Broadway because he considers American audiences more discerning than those in London.[22]

So do you mean this is his first time in America with the play; or is Wikipedia wrong? Just curious. :)

oops... sorry :o

I'll sprinkle you with fairy dust at renfest this year to make up for it, and point out hotties you might miss. ;)

Nope, won't help at all. Somehow horse lover and child hero don't go together.

Equus plot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equus_(play))

I'm not sure I want to see a play about that... but whatever. I still like Dan. It's easy to see though that many many parents will not like it. So the best thing WB can do, at this point, is not have them going on at the same time. That might, help keep talk about the two seperate... we'll see.

I don't want to wait for HP6! :mad:

I didn't know about that. I thought this was the first time. Well then, maybe WB does want it to be a summer movie, or America is not ready to have Dan naked on broadway the same time as HP6 comes out... who knows!

I read Equus. I don't know if I'd want to see it, either.

Yeah, his first time in the role in the States. He did it quite a while back in the te UK.

They moved HP to the summer because they needed BIG movies to bring in the bucks and hold up the summer extravaganza after the writer's strike, and also because it's almost in the can, to help them in case of an actor's strike, which is still possible this year.

DR is nothing but a professional when it comes to promotions, has never, ever shirked his duty there, so I can't see that his stint in Equus would affect a hugely expensive movie release like HP.

I am a perv! However, Sini started that train of thought. When I posted before about this, he blamed Equus. So, it's really Sini picturing Dan naked! :D :D

Actually I posted an article about it back in the original thread, so it was that author picturing Radcliffe naked. Besides, I'm too busy picturing Emma Watson naked. :D What? She's legal now. :p

He did it in London a while back - I think just after the last film came out - I seem to remember he was promoting both at similar times.
