Unfortunately, it sounds like the newest Harry Potter movie (phim Harry Potter 7, part 2) won’t be coming to Vietnam (Viet Nam). At all. Although Deathly Hallows Part 2 was being promoted in Vietnam as recently as last month, I’ve heard from friends that Warner Brothers
has terminated its movie distribution agreement with Galaxy doesn’t want to release its movies in Vietnam. This effects not only the new Harry Potter, which was due to be released in two weeks, but all of its other movies such as Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds and Blake (she so) Lively.
This is why I noticed recently that all references to the new Harry Potter movie had been removed from Megastar’s website.
While Warner certainly considers China to be a serious market, for whatever reason, Vietnam isn’t worth consideration despite the proven and growing successes of local operations such as Galaxy and Megastar. Big movies from other companies have done well enough in Vietnam, and Harry Potter has a huge fan base here, so I can’t imagine why something can’t be worked out.
Thus our options for the final chapter seem to be 1) (piracy) download a CAM version when it comes out in July 2) (piracy) purchase a higher-quality bootleg copy of the real DVD in 6 months 3) (yeah, right) go overseas to watch it 4) read the book and watch the trailer (below) to imagine the movie in your mind.
