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 Potterfilms 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).
I’ve got a collection of some great Harry Potter videos I’ve stored up because I’ve been way too lazy to write about and post them. I’ve got everything you need for a post HP fix now that you’ve probably seen the movie 18 times. Voldemort shows his softer side, Harry Potter ends differently, a Rebecca Black parody, a wizard rap battle between Gandalf and Dumbledore, and the final farewells from the cast, crew, and J.K. Rowling.
Check out all of these amazing videos after the jump!
Now this is the Harry Potter montage I have been waiting for! Warner Bros. Pictures have given us an extraordinary look back at how far we’ve come in the past 10 years with the Harry Potter movies. It is quick, it doesn’t spoil the movies, and it really amps you up in anticipation for the last film! If you have never gotten into the movies or the books and need a reason to, watch this montage and I believe that you will soon see why people are so infatuated with the Harry Potter universe! Watch the incredible video after the jump and for those who may feel like this may tug on your heartstrings, bring a tissue!
If you thought Ms. Rowling was finished in the wizarding world of Harry Potter than you are sorely mistaken my friends. JoJo has been whipping up an extra batch of HP goodness in her cauldron of secrets. Many had speculated what Pottermore.com could have been, but if you have been living under an Internet rock (since this news was revealed over a week ago) than you might not have known that J.K. Rowling has been developing a free online-reading experience built around the Harry Potter world. Check out the full press release after the jump and watch the official video message from Rowling herself in regards to Pottermore! Continue reading →
With less than two weeks to go, the end of an era that is the Harry Potter film franchise will come to a close. With the the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Warner Bros. has released some pretty awesome posters that any potter fan would die to get their hands on.
I’m just a big fan of the marketing. The fact that they don’t even have to use the full title of the movie on any of them other than HP7: Part 2 just goes to show how much of a impact this brand has on consumers. It’s like McDonald’s just using their golden arches or Starbucks removing their name from their cups. I kind of wish they took out the HP7: Part 2 from the poster and just stuck with just the tagline.
The continuous tagline, “It All Ends” sums everything up perfectly. No other words could solidify what the past 10 years have been leading up to. After the jump you’ll be treated to 11 hi-res character posters along with four other epic poster art.
I came across this really awesome infographic that shares the treasures of amazing tidbits that the Harry Potter universe has injected into our world. Did you know J.K. Rowling was the first billionaire (in U.S. dollars) by writing books? What other factoids can be revealed? Well you’ll have to see after the jump!
After this weekend, the force will not be with George Lucas. According to Cinematical and USA Today, the Harry Potter franchise will be well on its way to capturing the title of the highest grossing franchise in cinema history, according to BoxOfficeMojo. The Star Wars franchise in its entirety, yes, including those prequels, have earned up to $1.9 billion in domestic box office sales with its six films. Currently the Harry Potter franchise holds at $1.7 billion in domestic ticket sales up to date with its respective six films.
Less than two weeks away and Harry Potter fans every where will be treated to the first half of the final installment of the past decade’s most epic movie franchise. As a newly formed Potter fan who has just read all of the books for the first time this year, I can only emphasize my joy in these featurettes with a few words, “OH BOY!” If you have not read the book than I can assure you SPOILER WARNINGS AHEAD, these featurettes give away quite a few intricate scenes to the film plot. Check them out after the break!
