Kreasher

At the London press conference for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, one of the big topics of conversation was which character was cut, than added back into the film’s screenplau under JK Rowling’s advisement.

“Jo reads each draft,” David Heyman said, “she reads each screenplay, and she said, ‘You know, I wouldn’t do that if I were you. Or you can, but if you get to make a seventh film, you’ll be tied in knots.'”

MTV has been doing a little investigating and finally got a definite answer.

“It was Kreacher, actually,” director David Yates confirmed to MTV. “We took Kreacher out, and Jo said, ‘Listen guys, you don’t have to put Kreacher back, but I’m just telling you, if you want to kind of keep a thread going for six and seven, you might want Kreacher to come back.’ She basically told us Kreacher plays a role in Seven, in a sense. She hinted. We thought about it for five seconds, and he came back.”

What role could Kreacher play in the seventh and final book? We have no idea. Read more about the story and the disappearance of the mysterious locket at MTV Blogs.

The Dark Knight

AICN and many other sites around the web are reporting that a teaser trailer for the Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight, will premiere before Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Unfortunately we have received word from a VERY GOOD SOURCE that this is completely 100% untrue. So mark this rumor as killed. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix hits theaters on July 13.

1408

Earlier today we reported that The Weinstein Co/Lionsgate had decided to release Michael Moore’s Sicko up against Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille and Live Free or Die Hard. A bad release date if there ever was one. Now The Weinstein’s Dimension Films is finally making a smart move. They have moved the John Cusack Stephen King adaptation 1408 (photos, movie trailer) up from it’s original release date of July 13th 2007, to June 22nd. The film was originally set to go head to head with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and the Liv Tyler horror flick The Strangers. In the summer of sequels, no release date is prime property – everything is already taken.

1408 will not go up against the Steve Carell comedy Evan Almighty, Captivity and the limited release of Black Sheep. Wait a second… They have moved the film’s original release away from a huge family fantasy adaptation to go head to head with two other horror based films? I’m not quite sure this is a good idea after all.

Harry Potter Japan TrailerYou can watch the Japanese version of the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie trailer now. I always thought Japan had far better technology than the states, but apparently not. This trailer appears to be filmed with a video camera from a television airing. I must warn you, the quality is pretty bad. We should have a high quality UK version online tomorrow. But if you can’t wait, you can try to watch the Japanese trailer right here in Windows Media or in Flash after the jump. Also, HPANA has a nice description of the trailer if you would rather read that.
