TwilightTeam Edward and Team Jacob should be in agreement this evening, at least on the fact that an earlier release for the upcoming Twilight adaptation is a good thing. Twilight fans have been salivating, peppering on their vampire make-up and circling the blogosphere like cute little vultures, ready to pounce on any article that makes reference to the popular series of books by author Stephenie Meyer, and now they have some great news.

Yesterday, Warner Bros. announced that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince would be moving to summer 2009, which vacated the November 21 release date. The folks at Summit Entertainment, Twilight’s distributor, saw their opportunity to get an even bigger jump on the holidays, moving the teen vampire romance up from its December 12 release date.

So what does this actually mean? For Harry Potter, absolutely nothing. That film is going to make a killing no matter when it comes out — rest assured that all of those angry Potter fans will get over it. For Twilight however, this means that it will get a crack at opening on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This will put it in a much better financial position, at least as far as we can tell at this point.
