The Huffington Post has an article this morning saying that they think they know the real reason that the release of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" is being delayed by six months (NOTE: I say "they think they know" because the article does not offer any direct quotes from anyone at Warner Bros. stating that this is actual fact).
It's because if Warner Bros. released it in November or December, it would coincide with Daniel Radcliffe's Broadway debut in "Equus." And everyone who knows that play knows that his character appears onstage completely nude, and his character is interested in sex.
Shock! Horror! Harry Potter is naked under his clothes!
Apparently Warner is delaying the film so that Daniel Radcliffe will have ended his run in "Equus," and the earth-shattering, plague-of-locusts-inducing controversy that they expect over Daniel Radcliffe appearing on Broadway naked and in sexual situations will have had time to die down.
What a bunch of weenies.
