Amidst the fans' outrage over the nearly eight months delay of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" theatrical release date, a brand new image has been outed. This photo reveals a behind-the-scene shot of the film in which Michael Gambon as Albus Dumbledore stands in Hogwarts' Great Hall in front of director David Yates and other crew members.

Regarding the fans' angry response to the pushing back of the schedule, Warner Bros.' President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Horn has come out with an explanation of the debut change. "The decision to move 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' was not taken lightly, and was never intended to upset our Harry Potter fans," part of his statement read. "We know you have built this series into what it is, and we thank you for your ongoing enthusiasm and support."

On other "Harry Potter" news, the series star Daniel Radcliffe has come to sit down with New York TimesTalk for a chat in which he discussed "Half-Blood Prince". In it, he explained that he had no clue about the delay of the movie's release up until 24 hours before the announcement was outed. He also mentioned about the incident on the set as well as about which parts of the film considered to be dark or funny.

On the occasion, he also addressed Emma Watson's hesitation to reprise her Hermione role in the last two parts of "Harry Potter" series, "the Deathly Hallows". He noted that the hesitation to sign up for the two films did not occur because she did not want to do them, instead it was caused by her education and the fact that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" require three years of their lives. The rest of the interview's highlights can be read at SnitchSeeker.

"Half-Blood Prince" is now expected to come out in theaters nationwide on July 17, 2009. Directed by David Yates from the script by Steven Kloves, the Warner Bros.' movie puts up Radcliffe, Watson, Rupert Grint, Gambon, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Tom Felton and many others as the cast ensemble.

The makers of the movie might be laughing right now because with all your empty threats I can be 100% sure that you will go for each and every single movie. So like Draco say " You are a chundler who chundles."

Why don't you all keep your opinions to yourself? How much of time did you waste figuring out how many of those names fall under warner bros? Get a life... And as for the others on top, just because you are being dumb and are planning to boycott it doesn't make any sort of difference, so suck it up, buttercup.

Just so you know, you guys are dumb. Like boycotting WB is going to do anything except waste your time and lessen your enjoyment of life. You've got so little time in this world, why would you waste what you do have by being bitter and "boycotting" somehing. In case you havent noticed, nothing you do is going to make a difference. So shut up and just go see the movie when it does come out like good little boys and girls.
