The Guardian has an amusing if rather snide report on Accio!, the first British Harry Potter convention, here.

QUOTE
Accio! is sprinkled with obsessive compulsive disorder, like fairy eggs on a lawn. I meet a woman who announces that she listens to the Harry Potter audiotapes continuously. "When I finish one, I begin another. When I am walking, when I am eating, when I am cleaning the house, when I am sleeping, I listen to Harry." A sinister oneupmanship infests the rooms; who has the most exhaustive knowledge of the canon? "How many times did Harry get a zero in potions?" snaps one witch. "I ... I don't know," her friend stammers.

Looks like the film will look as good as the previous outings, hopefully it'll be better than Prisoner of Azkaban though which I was horribly disappointed with.

Some more new pics of the film, which you will find here.

In the most fundamentally ridiculous move since they tried to ban Spongebob Squarepants for being (suspected as) gay, Harry Potter and his pagan magical tendencies for some reason seems to really upset the Christian-right. And I find that hilarious. Maybe I'll even pick up a copy at some point (between 9am and 5pm).

You speak the truth! biggrin.gif

Warner Bros have had pointed out to thema couple of mistakes noticed in promo photos, including the grave stone.

QUOTE (The Snitch)
According to an article in The Courier Mail, fans have made Warner Bros aware of two major mistakes in the upcoming film. In a publicity picture from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (seen in the July 29th issue of Entertainment Weekly), Potter fanatics noticed problems with a tombstone in the background that read "Tom Marvolo Riddle 1915-1943". Firstly, Tom Marvolo Riddle being the birth name of Harry's arch enemy, Lord Voldemort, could not possibly be engraved on a tombstone in the fourth HP movie because he is STILL ALIVE! Secondly, if Voldemort is still living, then the dates one the tombstone would have to be incorrect as well. Because the picture with this big goof-up is a still taken directly from the most recent cut of the film, it raises a big issue.

Now Warner Bros. is wondering what to do before the film's release on November 16.
Producers are said to be considering altering the tombstone with the latest computer wizardry.

They have ruled out re-shooting scenes involving Radcliffe. But it is unlikely they can simply ignore the issue after it led to a fierce online debate.

One Australian fan, calling himself Sickle, said: "This drove me crazy."

Some also wondered why Rowling, who takes a keen interest in the movies, did not point out the errors.

Of course...many fans wondered if the name engraved on the tombstone was supposed to be Tom Riddle (as in Lord Voldemort's muggle father), but the middle name, Marvolo, makes the etching incorrect.



So there we go.

The mistake has pissed me off a bit too, not as much as Hermionie wearing PINK!?!?!?! ARGH! Its perriwinkle blue for christs sake!

I know a few smalltime potter fans (not fanatics) that even noticed this.

All will be forgiven if they get the "DOnt call him VICKY!" bit right.

It will beat my fave HP film moment "do you want to get a bit closer...to the shreaking shack!"

According to comingsoon.net, it has been given a PG-13 rating. All the other movies have been PG (not sure how you all break it down).

Ooo - this is good. Gruesome death? scary monsters? Both? I hope.

If done right then this movie should be a lot darker and therefore will need a higher rating. The Unforgivable Curses for one, again if done correctly, will be quite unpleasant but still true to the book.
Serafina_Pekkala
Apparently Ralph Fiennes has some prosthetic body casts which promises to be good. The higher rating to me is promising cos i hope they keep the dark nature of the book, as Ingram said. Coolio. I cannot wait. I NEED MORE POTTER - i'm like Audrey II - feed me Seymour!!!!!!!!

Anyone seen the Leaky Cauldron pix? Trigger as Hitler as Barty Crouch - genius biggrin.gif

I really can't wait for the game!! It comes out the day before the film doesn't it? I love the games (although I'm actually still stuck on Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone)!! *Goes off into a daydream about the next game*

Some more footage from the GoF has come to light. A lot of these clips looks like they come from the 2nd trailer, which means Warner Bros must be releaseing it soon.

Thanks, i was wondering how they'd show her. From that pic i'm not sure if they've pulled it off very succesfully but as you say, it's not a great shot.
Raven
Personally I'm glad she isn't being played by Audrey Tautou as she doesn't really fit the giantess mould (at least as far as I'm concerned anyway!).

If you want good Audrey watch A Very Long Engagement or better still Amelie! smile.gif

Wow, Krum doesn't look too bad! And Tom Felton is still lush of course (but not as lush as he was in the Prisoner of Azkaban extras when he had his hair all shaved off - he looked like a mini Eminem!).

I think I'm looking forward to this film the most ... or maybe Order of the Phoenix is tied with it ...
