If it's crap ... We'll tell you
'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' will hit store shelves on Nov. 11. If you liked the film, or any of the other entries in the franchise, we suggest you buy them all pretty damn quick. Warner Brothers has announced plans to pull all discs of all Harry Potter movies from store shelves on December 29th. No word yet as to whether this will be the last time we are able to own the movies in this franchise, doubt it, but it appears that, at least for a time, the films will not be available in any store.
This is an unusual move for any studio...unless of course that studio happens to rhyme with Shmisney. Disney has a tendency to offer its catalogue titles for a certain length of time before locking them away in the infamous Disney Vault. These films would then languish in the vault until their inevitable re-release years later. But what Disney has never done is release something like, say, the newest 'Pirates of the Caribbean,' allow people to purchase it for a month, and then pull it and all the other 'PotC' films off the shelves. I understand that this is probably just a ploy to sell more copies of the last Harry Potter film, and all the others as well, but couldn't they wait a little longer before doing something crazy like pulling all copies from all stores?
What do you guys think of this move by WB? Will it encourage you to buy 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' any quicker...or at all?
