Alan Horn pretty much spelled that out in the first press statement. A lot of people are really mad just because of the whole money issue, and I have a couple friends who are seriously considering boycotting the movie while it's in theaters. My mom also thinks they were worried about coming up against Twilight. They want HP6 to be top at the box office for a good length of time, not just a week or two. Especially when Eclipse knocked DH off the best seller list.
