A writer publishes a wildly popular fan fiction series that gets turned into a book. That book becomes a phenomenon and eventually gets adapted into a steamy, boundary-pushing feature film franchise. Sound familiar? Well, rinse and repeat that formula that was set by Fifty Shades of Grey — which famously traces its roots back to a Twilight fan fiction — and you’ve got After, the upcoming erotic romance movie that is (literally) a Harry Styles fan fiction meets Fifty Shades of Grey. See the After trailer below.

USA Today has released two new photos from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The photo above gives us our first look at a young Tom Riddle, played by Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, who grows up to become Lord Voldermort. The cool thing about Hero’s casting is that Hero is actually the real-life nephew of Ralph Fiennes, who plays Voldermort in the film series. The photo below shows Dumbledore, played by Michael Gambon, who creates a firestorm to fend off a group of reanimated and haunted dead people called Inferi. Director David Yates compares the scene to Charlton Heston’s parting fo the Red Sea in the Ten Commandments. “It’s an almost a biblical image,” Yates says. Indeed. The first teaser trailer for the next Potter film is expected to hit the web sometime in the next 24 hours.
