After a decade spent watching the Harry Potter kids grow up before my eyes, their faces have come to feel almost as familiar to me as those of my actual friends and family. So it’s been interesting but more than a little weird to look on over these past several months as each of them have gone on to tackle new, non-Potter parts. Daniel Radcliffe decided to go the horror story route with The Woman in Black, as we’ve seen, while Emma Watson returned to the big screen just this past weekend in My Week with Marilyn.
As for Rupert Grint, he’s apparently chosen a World War II drama titled Into the White. I know, I had no idea either — but now that I’ve seen the trailer, it doesn’t look half bad! Watch it after the jump.

If you’re the kind of person who got all emotional during all those Harry Potter cast interviews about shooting the final scene, or if you referred to the last movie, without irony, as “the end of an era,” then When Harry Left Hogwarts is for you. The documentary, by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Morgan Matthews (The Fallen), chronicles the making of David Yates‘ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2, and will make you get teary-eyed all over again as cast members talk about what it’s been like to be part of the franchise for the past ten years. Watch the trailer after the jump.

One of the weirder American monster legends is that which concerns the Jersey Devil, which originates in the 18th century, but became one of the breakout American pop-culture monsters thanks to reported sightings in the early 1900s.
Now Stephen Moyer from True Blood will star in a new film exploiting the legend: The Barrens. He’ll play a family man who, while on a camping trip in the New Jersey Pine Barrents, “becomes convinced [he and his family are] being stalked by the legendary winged monster that looks like a deformed hybrid of several different animals.” Darren Lynn Bousman wrote and will direct; the film shoots later this month in Toronto (what, not in Jersey? boo!) and will be released next fall by Anchor Bay. [Variety]
After the break, The Book of Mormon star Josh Gad joins Thanks For Sharing — a movie about sex addiction — and Rupert Grint and David Tennant will voice characters in the CG Postman Pat movie. Read More »
What happens when a studio dedicates a decade to adapting one of the most popular novel series in the world, and does so with an eye for quality? In the case of Harry Potter, the result is a massive payoff. Warner Bros. upset its own record for the biggest domestic opening weekend box office take, set by The Dark Knight in 2008, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 opened to a $168.5 million domestic haul and earned nearly half a billion dollars worldwide. Read the numbers below. Read More »
“It all ends.” So says the latest round of advertising for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which hits theaters July 15. The phrase obviously has several interpretations: the end of the Potter story, the final Potter movie, etc. But the one thing that “It all ends” apparently doesn’t mean is the end of the posters Warner Brothers is putting out to publicize the film. Four more have just come online and, I’ll admit it, like most of the other posters released, these are very attractive. But, really, did we need four more? Is this movie not going to make $400 million domestic and well over $1 billion internationally? I think it can do that in its sleep without a shred of advertising.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has begun screening so we’ll surely start to hear reviews soon but, until then, check out these new posters which – with the film being released in just over a week – could be the final ones, after the jump. Read More »

With just one month left before the Harry Potter film series ends for good, it feels like we’re getting a some new bit of promotional material practically every day. At this point, I’ve lost count of just how many posters we’ve already seen for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. But as long as they look this fantastic, I’m not complaining. In the days since we last showed you the last batch of posters, featuring the heroes and villains looking dirty and bloodied, a handful of new posters have been released. Hit the jump to see the forces of good, an army of evil, and a huge-ass dragon.
