The actor who brought Harry Potter‘s Uncle Vernon to life on the big screen, has gone on to the next great adventure.
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.
While we won’t get the first half of “The Deathly Hallows” in 3-D in theaters, we will be able to watch it in 3-D at home.
Warner Brothers will complete the 3-D conversion process for the film’s eventual Blu-Ray release. And they’re going back to convert the sixth installment “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” for Blu-Ray release as well.
Call it a small victory for conventional films and those of us who don’t care for 3-D.
Warner Brothers announced last week that the first half of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” won’t be in 3-D. The film was in the process of being converted to 3-D, but the studio ran out of time to get it properly converted. That includes a 3-D IMAX version.
When “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” hit stores a couple of summers ago, writer J.K. Rowling said that it was the end of the best-selling fantasy saga.
And while she said she might revisit the world in a decade or so, it appears she could be thinking of a move back to the wizarding world of Potter sooner than that.
