Last week we posted the first photos from the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows showing what happened to the surviving characters in the decades following the events of the books. Many of you have probably already read the book, and know that David Yates is filming the scenes for the last movie, employing make-up and wigs to make the actors look older. The first photos featured only a couple of the actors in character. Some new set photos have been revealed which show a couple of the other characters in action.

Obviously, be very aware of spoilers. See Snitchseeker for the photos.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers?

Just as there’s talk of the last Twilight novel being adapted into two films, here we’ve got the first official photo from the first of two films that will adapt the final Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. There was that photo of Harry walking around in a misty forest that showed up many months ago, but this is the first official look at the heroic trio of Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson). Isn’t it special? Read More »

A Japanese comedy television show, Sanma Akashiya’s “Karakuri Terebi”, held a contest last month in which 10,000 of Japan’s biggest Harry Potter fans competed for a chance to travel to the UK and visit the set of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The show intentionally picked the strangest and most obsessed fan as the winner, a girl named Kana, and surprised her with a chance to meet and interview Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter).

Even though the interviews are only partially subtitled, both of them are still laugh out loud hilarious. You MUST check out the videos, embedded after the jump.

London location filming is afoot on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Above you’ll see a snap from the set, showing Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson in action – legging it from a (white-on-white, do highlight) Wedding when the Death Eaters threaten to show up and turn it all The Graduate. The picture comes from MATRIX photography via The Telegraph.

The boy wizard and his producer friend David Heyman have hinted to Empire where the split between the two Deathly Hallows films is going to come. After the break, their spoilery hints.
