It appears that J.K. Rowling isn’t quite ready to stop playing in the Harry Potter sandbox.
If you’ve read the Harry Potter novels or seen the movies you know not all of the Weasleys make it through the saga unscathed.
Eight movies, eight number one openings. That’s the magical record for the Harry Potter franchise.
Add to it a weekend debut of $168.5 million and you’ve got not only the biggest opening of the year but the biggest opening weekend of all time.
If you can’t get enough Harry Potter, you may want to tune in this weekend. Sirius XM Radio will offer three days of coverage and discussion surrounding the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part Two.
The first trailer for the final installment in the wizarding saga of Harry Potter has been released.
This weekend, ABC Family will air a marathon of the first five Harry Potter films.
And to lure viewers, the cable outlet will air a sneak preview of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 during the four-night marathon on films.
If you want to see “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” this weekend, you may be out of luck. That is if you don’t already have a ticket.
MovieTickets reports that 1000 showings of the first half of the final installment of the film have already sold out. And that tickets to other weekend screenings are rapidly selling out as well. The site reports that ticket sales for “Deathly Hallows” account for 92% of all sales on the site right now.
It’s a scam worthy of Volderemort himself.
With “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″ set to take the box-office by storm this weekend and Potter-mania reaching a fever point, on-line scam artists are looking to lure in unsuspecting web surfers.
According to PC Tools, on-line campaigns are already piggy-bagging on the high profile release to nefarious ends.
