The eighth (and the last) movie from the Harry Potter novels will be released on July 15, 2011. For film purposes, the final book in the series ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows") is being split in two.
And then it's only four months till the next mega-hit novel-turned-film arrives. "The Twilight Saga's New Moon," based on "New Moon," the second book in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 20, 2009.
The tweaking of the title may not please the purists among Meyer's fans, but an MTV blog suggests that perhaps the lengthy title means "that 'New Moon' will boast a more epic feel than the first movie."
One way or the other, the same blog is hardly overstating the case when it calls the film "one of the most anticipated movies of the year."
