The release date for the DVD of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is now being reported as December 11.
With the start of filming for Half-Blood Prince just around the corner, more casting news is finally becoming available. David Thewlis will be returning as Remus Lupin and James and Oliver Phelps will apparently be back as the Weasley twins (woot!).
Oh, and Daniel Radcliffe is nervous about being naked on Broadway.
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is finding many ways to make his fans swoon.
He’s talking about his first-ever sex scene in the movie December Boys. And he’s heading to Broadway to perform Equus, the source of many an un-Harry-like publicity photo and larceny, apparently.
Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson’s wands, hand and footprints were immortalized in a ceremony yesterday at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
Thanks to the folks at Harry Potter’s Page for the video.
Daniel Radcliffe in a leather vest. Oh honey. I know you don’t want to be Harry Freaking Potter for the rest of your life, but there have got to be better ways to express it.
However, the best part may be Emma Watson’s reaction. (via luna_k)
Harry Potter V producer David Heyward got a bit choked up watching Daniel Radcliffe portray Harry Potter’s first kiss.
I’m sure Daniel really appreciates all the mushiness.
It’s been confirmed that Daniel Radcliffe has decided to sign on for the last two Harry Potter films.
In semi-related news Daniel has asked his co-stars not to come see him in the play Equus, where he appears naked.
Never give your co-workers that kind of ammunition!
Daniel Radcliffe’s London stage debut will be a production of Equus. Yes, seriously. Warner Brothers executives and delicate fangirls are no doubt freaking out as I type.
Some 7,000 fans showed up at Sunday’s world premiere of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” in London’s Leicester Square.
Young fans tell “The Times” the newest film is the “best so far — by far”.
A Winnipeg-based band called the Wyrd Sisters has failed to get an injunction to block the release of the film in Canada. Members of the band claim JK Rowling stole the name from them. The lawsuit is still pending. (Errr… no comment)
And finally, Daniel Radcliffe hopes the bespectacled young hero he portrays in the films will buy the moisture farm in the last installment.
“I would like Harry to die at the end of that seventh book. I think it would be a very good ending if he had to die in order for evil Voldemort to die”, Radcliffe said.
Of course, it won’t matter much to him since he isn’t sure he’ll be back for the last two movies anyway.
20th Century Fox is #1 in the summer box office race, in no small part due to the success of Revenge of the Sith. Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Fantastic Four were their other big earners.
Pics from Bryan Singer’s Superman film. Mostly old stuff if you’ve been keeping up, but there’s a few I haven’t spotted before, most noteably Kevin Spacey as Lex Luther. Oh yes, and the film is supposedly going to cost $250 million. For some perspective, ROTS had a $113 million production budget, and Batman Begins was made for $150 million, at least according to Box Office Mojo.
Get ready for more superhero films – Marvel is dealing left and right with their properties. Having already cleared out most of the biggies, that means Captain America, the Avengers, Nick Fury, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Cloak & Dagger, Dr. Strange, Hawkeye, Power Pack and Shang-Chi are headed to the screen. If you’ve heard of more than half of these guys, I commend you. Sort of.
Harry Potter – erm, Daniel Radcliffe – as a young James Bond? Certainly I’m not the only person who remembers the short-lived 90’s cartoon about Bond’s ‘nephew,’ James Bond Jr., and is now having flashbacks?
Nevermind that Radcliffe has (hopefully) three more Potter movies to do… Speaking of, how’d you like to see some pictures from Goblet of Fire? I thought you would.
