It has been almost three years since the last Harry Potter movie hit the big screen, and Warner Bros. is still cashing in on the never ending hype for this massive franchise with an all new 31-Blu-ray Disc Hogwarts Collection. Back in 2012 Warner Bros. released a similar Limited Edition set, the Wizards Collection, to the tune of $500, which has sold out world wide and thus this new release. The Harry Potter Hogwarts Collection is luckily cheaper and set to release on April 29. Check out what’s included in the package after the break. Continue reading
For those of you who have previously purchased past box-sets containing seven or less HarryPotterfilms, I’ve got some bad news for you that you should have foreseen a mile away. Warner Bros. will be releasing the very first collection of all eight Harry Potter films together for the first time in one massive 31-disc collector’s set (37 hours of special features – 10 of which is bonus, 5 of which is never before seen material).
Right before the new year, Warner Bros. put all of the Harry Potter films in their own personal vault, much like how Disney does it with their animated features. But this fall it looks like Harry will escape from Azkaban to visit our world one more time before he’s locked back up in the cupboard or wherever WB is hiding him. Keep reading to find out what’s inside this massive box set! Continue reading
I find it always fascinating when someone takes a piece of film, literature, television or a videogame and turn them into art. Ms. Lucy Knisely was artistically brilliant enough to take on the entire Harry Potter literature. She transformed every book into a giant comic strip for a poster that you can view on her LiveJournal. If you think she has made a masterpiece than by all means donate to her art. She has done something great here. You can also view all of the books separately in comic strip form after the jump!

Check out the details after the break!
Heyooo, weekend update with the movies you should see:
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – This is pretty self explanatory. I actually caught up and watched all of the Harry Potters and I’d have to admit that I wouldn’t mind watching this one. Looks dark, more mature, and better than the earlier movies.
(500) Days of Summer (Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon Levitt) – A love movie not about love? I really want to see this movie. Based on the trailer, it has good actors, comedy, a sweet story, and maybe good romance? Although this film is limited to certain theaters, try your damndest to go out and watch this flick. I bet it won’t disappoint.
I’ll give it props. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince reigns supreme being the largest midnight opener with $22.2 million. This beats the original records from The Dark Knight’s $18 mil and the 2nd place Revenge of the Sith‘s $17 mil. It also stomped out the largest grossing midnight box office champion of the year, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with its $16 million. This movie could possibly destroy all domestic records with that kind of showing or perhaps just everyone showed up last night? Who knows. The domestic 5 day record is still The Dark Knight with $203.8 and in 2nd place Revenge of the Fallen with $201.3 million. Could Mr. Potter triumph over all? Go to the theaters and maybe it will happen………
