With Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince opting to move to July 2009, now comes word that Quantum of Solace (the highly-anticipated sequel to the James Bond reboot Casino Royale) has pushed its U.S. release date back one week from November 7th to November 14.

I guess that honestly shouldn’t be considered a surprise – what with the Potter sequel being its only real competition!

And although it will face off directly against the likes of Baz Luhrmann’s Australia and the “Meh!” looking comedies Role Models and Soul Men, I seriously doubt they’ll stand in the way of 007’s box-office domination that weekend. Hopefully this isn’t the start of a trend: fluid release dates.

My buddy Phil Gee (who lives in the U.K.) is probably laughing knowing he’ll have seen the film now 2 weeks before I will!

Quantum of Solace will grace the silver screen on November 14, 2008.
