Unfortunately for American James Bond fans Quantum of Solace will be delayed from its release of November 7th to November 14th due to the recent delay of Warner Bros’ sixth Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Speaking to Variety Jeff Blake, Sony chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution said, “We believe Nov. 14 is a great date that allows us to play straight through Thanksgiving and right into Christmas. We believe this decision will give the public a wider opportunity to see the film over the holiday.”
Quantum of Solace will now go up against Baz Luhrmann’s Australia starring Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. This move marks the second delay for James Bond’s twenty-second outing which was originally announced by Sony for a release on May 2nd before being pushed to the November date. Its release in the UK is still seemingly on track for 31 October.
