The movie posters for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince have finally made it on to the internet — and look pretty damn cool. Is it July 17 yet?
Finally, The Deathly Hallows was the most borrowed book from UK libraries last year.
It will apparently be attached to Twilight. You can see it here in a multitude of formats. Run, don’t walk!
This is the ‘international teaser trailer’ but it’s pretty chock-full for a teaser! Enjoy!
Steve Sansweet gets quoted in a story on the Harry Potter fans miffed at the Half-Blood Prince delay.
Some think the outsized reaction could actually be a boon for the studio. Steve Sansweet, who runs fan relations for George Lucas’s Lucasfilm Ltd., says “Warner Bros. should be delighted. Sure, they have a problem on their hands, but they are also seeing the passion of their fans. The real problem comes when you have fans that don’t give a damn.”
Granted, the quoted Potterheads are certainly on the raging, ranty, please-calm-down end of the spectrum, but Steve has a point. Just, uh, refrain from sticking your hands between the bars.
Talk of JadeCon: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been pushed back from November to July 2009. Rach pretty much summed it up. (See headline.)
Yes, yes, we’re still going to The Clone Wars.
According to MTV, the Daily Prophet (??) headline is “More Disappearances At Ministry Of Magic.”
Just in case you were wondering.
One of my two favourite economists found a couple gems today (thanks, Diane!). First, what is the real secret of Harry Potter? And, second, one French philosopher celebrates the release of Harry Potter et les Reliques de la mort there by asking whether Muggles represent the Thatchero-Blairite middle class clawing their way up from the lower middle class to the upper middle class, while Harry is… er, well, I’ll let you read it yourself. Bonus points if you can do it in the original French (and you already have yours, Paula).
Justice League of America script might have leaked. Emphasis on the might, but there are possible spoilers. In slightly more plausible news (it’s from Variety!) Jessica Biel may step into Wonder Woman’s boots. Well, we know she’s kicked ass before, but is she superhero material? I don’t foresee any complaints from the Karrdes.
Meanwhile, in another franchise…
- Daniel Radcliffe looking forward to filming Inferi scene for Half-Blood Prince.
- Transformers 2 in Summer 2009.
- David Duchovny claims second X-Files might begin shotting in December.
- Rumor mill: Rachel Weisz and Chloe Sevigny fighting for role in… Terminator 4? Yeah, right.
- Technician dies on the set of The Dark Knight.
