Alright, is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince delayed or no? There's tons of online petitions, Facebook groups and news articles from online news sites i have never heard of saying yes, but Imdb.com is still saying 21 November 2008. Which is it? I believe it's still out on the 21st! EDIT: It's official, July 17th 2009 is the new, crappy release date for Harry Potter And the Half Blood Prince. Check IMDB.com.
