HP For Profit

Cover of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood...Cover via Amazon

Everyone will forget about the Harry Potter that grasped everyone's attention through this decade in our lives. Today, the sixth movie of this series came out after two years the last book of the series came out. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as it is called will not only capture more attention because of the graphics that is applied to it but more than that.

My brother asked me an interesting question, I suppose. Why is this movie coming out before Friday when most of the movies come out in the theaters? Well, I couldn't actually explain it to him but I suppose it has to do all with the fact of making money and profiting big from this budgeted film. Everyone likes to make profits from these and they also make them from these. Harry Potter films have made a huge progress to the world's revenue in film industry. The last film had a budget of $150 million dollar and the revenue was $938 million, that is more than just five hundred million dollars of profit.

Now what's more than just profit? Well, the next book, or the last movie will be split in two parts. A quote from Wikipedia shows:

A two-part film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is planned. The film is to be split in two, with David Yate, who directed the preceding two films, directing both parts. The first part will be released in November 2010, and the second in July 2011.

Well, now what is more to making a profit? I have no idea because how can you actually split a film in two? You think that the book is long and the film will be long with that? Then why don't you delete some parts and make the film adaptation to it because now with this, you would have to buy two tickets to see the whole thing. Anything else? Yes, the fact that Deathly Hollows is not the longest book also lies there and still there will be two films for just one book, give me a break.

Please do not take me seriously but as a kid and kids that I saw in school around me would not get much money to watch two movies and still the profit never goes down or something? Come on, HP is not for profit and I think we can say that.
