Test screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie
From the Guardian: Attendees of a test screening (in Chicago) of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last week voiced unhappiness with several elements, including the emphasis on romance, a changed ending (REALLY?), and the disappearance of several key characters (WHO????).
According to reports, director David Yates has cut several "memories" to just two, but most disappointing is the ruining of the ending. It remains to be seen if producers will make any changes to the film before its release in July.
However they did like a fight scene that doesn't occur in the book, in which Death Eaters attack the Millennium Bridge.
How can they possibly change the ending?
