Potter fans rejoice! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits theaters today, July 15. So, whether you attended one of the more than 3,000 midnight showings, or plan on seeing the film at a later date (in theaters, on DVD, or even on TV), we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
As the hours tick by, we will update you with additional film reviews and box office revenue figures. A hint of what's to come: "According to executives who have seen the survey data for 'Potter,' however, it has a good shot at beating the all-time domestic record for Wednesday ticket sales of $62 million set last month by 'Revenge of the Fallen.'"

The film isn't even out in theaters yet, but that's not stopping anything. DVD Times is reporting that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be out on DVD and Blu-ray on December 7. Of course, this is more than five months away and is therefore prone to change, especially until an official press release comes our way. The article itself even says, "As always with news like this, the dates that follow are subject to change (and almost certainly will the further we get into the future) but should give you an idea of what’s on the horizon…" Read more here.

ComingSoon.net was at the Harry Potter press junket in New York this morning and has posted a fabulous article summarizing what cast and crew had to say about parts one and two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at the event, as well as what they said in exclusive interviews with ComingSoon.net after the press junket. Do not read the article if you have not read the book or do not want to spoil the movies! Otherwise, you can read it by clicking here. An excerpt with no spoilers:
Director David Yates and the cast are about five months into shooting the two halves of the film, scheduled for November 19, 2010 and July 15, 2011, and he mentioned that they would have very different looks even though he's using the same crew. He told ComingSoon.net in an exclusive interview after the press conference that they've shot roughly 85% of Part 1 and 10% of Part 2, the latter due to the availability of the actors.
