Courtesy of Mugglenet - UPDATE: WB has also just confirmed the Australian release date: September 6th, 2007.

And then they have the gall to get upset when we go looking for pirate copies!

Is this for Phoenix in cinemas?
20th-Apr-2006 07:53 pm (UTC)
Yup. US and UK get it July 13.

They're morons.

I assume it has to be dubbed back from Bulgarian to Australian....

But that's TWO MONTHS!!!

You know i'll do what I can to get it to you...

Considering the books in English had to be translated into American, anything is possible!

*hugs you* I swear, if there was any way I could afford to, I would fly to the UK to see it. (specially if I could go see it with you!) But I would have to bring the whole family and... yeah $$$$$!

I am just so SICK of Australia being shafted with release dates. Specially when I know it's possible for them to be released on the same day.
Hell Boy was out on DVD in the States before it reached cinemas here, can you believe it? Then all the moguls were jumping up and down cos Aussie fans were importing the bloody DVD.

Dude, that just sucks. It's not like they have to do language translations or anything. :(

If I find a bootleg it's totally yours and Liss' too!

20th-Apr-2006 08:00 pm (UTC)
Er, that made no sense. LOL I meant that I'd send one to you and one to Liss since you're both in Australia.

AUGH!!!! I HATE how they do that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why the hell do we have to get the movie so much later?!?!? Stupid WB! I'm meant to be heading to Europe at about that point......guess my trip will be happening AFTER 7 September. I would LOVE to know the reasoning behind the delayed release here - idiots!
20th-Apr-2006 08:26 pm (UTC)
The reasoning is doubtless due to the school hols starting here in mid Sept. and they want to release the film when they know it will get maximum patronage. (the real pisser is that term 3 here starts the week before it's released in the UK/US. If it had been released a week earlier, they might have pushed to get it here for those hols. Then again, knowing WB, probably not.)

Now that's just plain stupid! Why would they take so long to show it in Australia, is not like they need to tr go foranslate it! Dumb WB! I say downloaded it on the 14th! :D

we'll all be spoiled and have seen a million pirate copies by then so they'll probably lose money.

Not enough.

And they couldn't give a flying fuck about whether we get 'spoiled' or not, they just want our money. *sigh*

Ouch. Just ouch.

*has idea*

*will report back on fesibility*

20th-Apr-2006 09:34 pm (UTC)
No. Fucking. Way

Is it coming by donkey from the States? If you get a pirate copy Leela, Ill pay you for another copy. Suck on that WB, you get nuffin'.
20th-Apr-2006 11:27 pm (UTC)
WTH? That's not even remotely fair! Do they think those in Australia aren't important enough (or rich enough) to care about? (maybe it's the fucking oil thing and gas prices and what the hellfuck else. I'm blaming this all on Bush!)
21st-Apr-2006 03:36 am (UTC)
I heard about it, too, and have done my own little WTF post. Man, that sucks a whole lot.
21st-Apr-2006 06:50 am (UTC)
Oh, sweetie, I am sorry. That really sucks....I hate corporations like that who only care about making the most money possible. If I find any bootlegs, I will send it to you. ^__^

Hey, randomly looking through friends pages and stuff & just wanted to let you know that there is a petition about this here:

Don't know how much help it's going to do but hey, we can try I guess. Now excuse me while I go and be annoyed at stupid WB.

I'm really peeved about this. I've been in HP fandom for about 1.75 years now, and having a great time ... seems every day there's something new, something more creative, that someone has done out there. Half the fun of the movie is in participating in the on-line discussions and such afterwards.

With GoF I stayed away from the HP internet sites for the interval (was it under two weeks?) between the global release and the domestic unveiling. But no way am I going to keep off the HP side of the internet for 6+ weeks. Besides, even two weeks was too long; by the time I was able to hop on almost everyone had moved on to newer topics.

So, certainly, avast ye maties, there be pirates in these antipodean waters! I was going to suggest fans organising to watch pirate copies down here - I don't known any HP fans personally, only online - but that would be too risky, I guess.

I'll still be watching avidly for links to pirated copies, though, when the time comes. No bloody guilt whatsoever on this one.

I saw that and I am so upset. There's school hols in July so why not release it then? Stupid WB
