Bravo to Summit Entertainment for not dragging out the awesome like everything is going with the Harry Potter franchise. I mean really? Deathly Hallows is going to be two movies and I just don't see how that's possible considering how short the book is in comparison to the book sizes of Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix. I'm not concerned at all by how close the release dates are though that seems to be a concern for some. I have very good faith that the movie will be done on equal or better footing when it comes to the special effects, acting, and filming.
Though I am a little concerned about SAG Getting Ugly Again. This could be very bad news for New Moon production and would certainly knock Eclipse back on the time line as well.
Good news for Robert Pattinson fans - he's going to announce at the Oscars, but we might not see him on the red carpet. Make a bowl of popcorn and watch tonight at 5 PT/8 ET!
