Voldemort pronunciation

Despite the fact that there have been no less than eight movies in the Harry Potter film franchise that have featured dozens of actors speaking fearfully and intensely about the dark wizard known as Lord Voldemort, it’s more than likely that you’ve been pronouncing the villain’s name wrong this whole time. But don’t worry, because pretty much everyone has, even the stars of the movies.

In a little exchange on Twitter, author J.K. Rowling confirmed (maybe again for some of the most hardcore fans) the proper Voldemort pronunciation, and it just might surprise you. Read More »

American Gods director

We still don’t know who will star in American Gods, the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel which marks the major post-Hannibal project for producer Bryan Fuller.

Director Danny Boyle‘s latest film, the biopic Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender, is getting plenty of early praise after its debut at the Telluride Film Festival this past weekend.
