Early on in the life of the Harry Potter universe, there was some confusion over the name of one of J.K. Rowling's principal characters.
'If you’re having Quidditch problems, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but a snitch ain’t one.'
She might not have had an invite, but J.K. Rowling was made more than welcome nonetheless at a wedding in Edinburgh over the weekend.
The second Fantastic Beasts film promises to be the most adult Wizarding World film to date.
In an archive of the late actor's personal papers, which are set to be auctioned later this week, it appears that Rickman was 'frustrated' with the role.
Tickets for the Harry Potter plays are selling like cauldron cakes after the show transferred to New York City.
This week, Warner Bros. Studios, with a little help from Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), opened a new exhibit space dedicated to the cinematic wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling. The hall is stocked with eye-popping props from every Harry Potter film as well as the recently released Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Newton Artemis Fido Scamander is ready for his close-up. The magizoologist otherwise known as Newt is the central figure of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, J.K. Rowling’s prequel of sorts to Harry Potter opening on Friday.
It stars Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Colin Farrell (Percival Graves), Carmen Ejogo (President Seraphina Picquery), Samantha Morton (Mary Lou Barebone), Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone), Jon Voight (Henry Shaw, Sr), with cameos by Ron Perlman (voice of Gnarlack) and Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald). It is rated PG.
Plucked from obscurity to star in the biggest franchise of all time, these young actors were barely tweenagers when they first appeared on-screen. See how they’ve changed…
Director Chris Columbus decided, at least at outset of production for Sorcerer's Stone, that Emmy Watson as Hermione should sport some artificial chompers.
Film is collaborative, but that’s not so great when you’re divvying up the box office takings. The full extent of what makes up a movie balance sheet is enough to fill several books, but it comes down to this.
Unlike the eight Harry Potter movies, there is no preexisting novel that introduces the new wizards and No-Majs (that’s Muggles to Potterheads) who inhabit Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Set in 1920s New York, the movie will focus on Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a wizard who accidentally sets the title beasts loose and wreaks havoc in the magical world of the United States.
Rupert Grint is taking the government to court over a disputed tax refund of £1 million. The ‘Harry Potter’ star appeared at the Royal Courts of Justice yesterday to claim that Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs owe him the huge rebate. The issue is to do with the timing of when he tried to change his tax accounting dates back in 2010, in an effort to limit the effect of an increase in the top rate of tax from 40 percent to 50 percent.
If anything has become clear in the five years since Daniel Radcliffe hung up the Hogwarts robe, it’s that the 26-year-old British actor loves mixing it up (also rapping, but more on that later). For his latest act, Radcliffe plays his first traditional movie villain, an honor he jokingly calls a “rite of passage” for any British performer. In Now You See Me 2, the razzle-dazzle sequel to the 2013 sleeper hit, Radcliffe plays Walter Mabry, a sketchy tech genius who lures The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzie Caplan, stepping in for Isla Fisher) to Asia and forces them to work their magic in another high-stakes heist.
The toy brick slingers have assembled an expansive and adorable cast of favorite cinematic characters, many of whom have never been Lego-fied before — E.T., Tom Cruise, and the Goonies, for starters — to join the existing crew of 'Lego Dimensions.'
When imagining what his Red Queen would look like in his trippy 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, director Tim Burton drew a picture of the giant-headed ginger and handed it to his then-partner Helena Bonham Carter. “He showed it to me and said, ‘Well, that’s obviously you,” Bonham Carter told Yahoo Movies. “I couldn’t quite see the immediate resemblance, given that she had a massive head.”
