Final Harry Potter film gets release date

Eighth installment to open July 15, 2011

Harry has a final date with his film destiny: Warner Bros. will open the eighth film in its Potter franchise -- "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part II" -- on July 15, 2011.

"Deathly Hollows: Part I" is set to unspool on Nov. 19, 2010. The studio decided to split the seventh and final book in the Potter literary series into two movies because of the tome's length.

Also Wednesday, Warners postponed the release of its holiday tentpole "Sherlock Holmes" to Dec. 25 from Nov. 1. The studio also shifted its summer comedy "Hangover" to June 12 from June 5.
