Warner Bros. domestic distribution president Dan Fellman reports plans to re-release the complete Harry Potter franchise following Deathly Hallows Part 2 in 3D.
It All Ends Here. Almost. As the decade-spanning juggernaut that is the Harry Potter film franchise rumbles ponderously towards that massively unsatisfying last chapter, we skipped the queues for a preview of what we expected to be a film reminiscent of its predecessors – pretty, but ultimately as disappointing as pulling Neville’s broom keys out of a bowl at a wizarding swingers’ party. We were wrong. If Part 2 is this good, the last two films may just vindicate the entire series.
With Harry Potter apparating back into screens next weekend with seventh instalment The Deathly Hallows Part I, Best for Film have endeavoured to catch you up to speed in terms of both the onscreen saga to date as well as the recent promotional campaign. Marketed as ‘The Motion Picture Event Of A Generation’, we would hate for anyone to miss out on either this phenomenal cinematic achievement or the expertly orchestrated promotional propaganda which is preceding it. Now, where did I leave my Quick Quotes Quill?
Almost finished with the Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe consoles himself with The Woman In Black. See the first official photo from the Hammer Horror remake here.
Now that he’s hung up his pointy hat, wand and pained-yet-heroic expression for good, we’re all wondering what Daniel Radcliffe will do next. He’s finished filming the seven book/eight film epic that is Harry Potter, and hasn’t wasted much time in selecting a new role. He’s announced that he will be starring in a remake of the 1930s WW1 epic All Quiet On The Western Front.
…well, dollars at least. It has been announced today that the 19-year-old Harry Potter starlett has this year earned $19 million, making her the highest paid actress of 2009. She beat out the likes of Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie, as well as being the youngest person on Varietys best paid list at number 14.
