Do go on.
Daniel Radcliffe stopped by British chat-show Daybreak yesterday to promote the upcoming Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows film. Soon the discussion turned to his onscreen kiss with costar Emma Watson, and according to Dan-Rad, mackin’ it with Hermione was kind of intimidating. In fact, he says she “ambushed” him.
“I always thought it was going to be this soft sensual sort of moment,” he spilled. “And suddenly there was this vigorous kissing happening to me.Ã‚Â She is a bit of an animal…But then, I’m not complaining. There are tens of thousands of men that would cut off limbs to be in that position.”
Hmmm, “Always thought?” Vigorous kissing? Sounds like they’ve wanted to do this for a loooooong time. But what do we know. Reportedly fellow Hogwarts alum Rupert Grint had to be leave the room during the scene because he was laughing so hard. Yeah right. They probably just wanted some alone time…
Look out, folks! It’s time for that other two-part supernatural saga finale that’s gonna bust records and tear up screens across the country. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows staring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint is going wide November 19th (that’s the one with the hot wizards, not the hot vampires) and these new HP7 trailers have us totally under their spell.
Seriously, if you looked up the word “epic” in the dictionary, it would tell you to put down the dictionary because you’re wasting valuable time that you could be spending watching this clip. There’s so much action that it takes more than one Harry. When did our favorite wiz-kids turn into such bad*sses?
Oh, happy Harry day! The latest Deathly Hallows posters just arrived in our inbox, along with a healthy dose of blood spatter and dirt. Is it possible that this film adaptation goes astray and we find out Harry and Hermoine are actually wand-wielding, conscientious serial killers?! [Posters: Warner Bros., Showtime]
Check out the latest Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer in HD after the jump!
There are few things that actually makes us “squeeeee!”, as the kids say, but Harry Potter is one of them. The books, the movies (well, the last couple movies anyway), the theme park, whatever – we’re into it. So we’re thrilled to watch the full trailer for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part I, which is like a mini-epic in itself.
In all seriousness, we wonder if the performances in this movie will be recognized at the Oscars (we’d settle for a Golden Globe, too) because Ralph Fiennes‘ Voldemort voice is chilling, and Daniel Radcliffe is putting himself through the ringer in these final two movies. Check out the trailer, which seems extremely faithful to the book and just as dark and emotional. We fully intend to bawl our faces off during this movie, if not for the deaths that occur than because it means the franchise is that much closer to being over. November 19, you can’t come soon enough!
Stills from the trailer below!
We are Harry Potter nerds, and as such, anyone involved in the franchise can do no wrong in our eyes. However, we found a quote from a recent interview with Emma Watson to be kind of peculiar. Emma explained the romantic element of the final Potter films, she said “This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it’s been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex.” Don’t get us wrong, we love everything about Emma, we love her new pixie hair, and mostly we love Hermione Granger, but we found this to be weird, since Twilight is 3,000 pages of sexual tension and about 2 pages of island sex.
These are the books where the main characters do it all of two times (in no gratuitous detail, thanks for nothing, Stephenie Meyer) before a monster starts growing inside Bella, trying to punch, kick and eat it’s way out.Ã‚Â Sure, there’s the mental image of Robert Pattinson biting his pillow to downy bits which we’d pay good money to see, but there’s only about 2% more sex in Twilight than there is in Harry Potter. Just, you know, to clarify. Of course we don’t blame Emma for not reading the books, girlfriend has movies to shoot and Ivy League universities to attend.
Harry should’ve put a ring on it. His flame-haired lovah, Ginny Weasley’s gone and decamped to the Twilight faction. We had reported rumors two weeks ago that Bonnie Wright (Ginny from Harry Potter) and Jaime Campbell Bower (Caius from The Twilight Saga: New Moon) were engaged. Ã‚Â It’s now a 100% official!
Romance blossomed for the two on the sets Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows whereÃ‚Â Campbell Bower’s been roped in to play Gellert Grindewald. It’s a crazy crossover between the two epics-in-making, but the move’s not without a certain sense of deja vu. Our beloved R.Pattz clocked time as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire before taking on Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise.
Back to the juice: the love birds have been dating for the last six months and are apparently totally infatuated with each other. A source revealed, “Ã‚Â They met on the set of the movie and Jamie fell for Bonnie really badly.Ã‚Â He says they are completely in love. It all seems very whirlwind, but they both say itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the real deal.Ã‚Â All he has told us is that he asked her to marry him andÃ‚Â Bonnie said yes.” He is said to have popped the question last month and couldn’t be happier about soon becoming Mr. Wright. The source added, “He is chuffed to bits and neither of them seem to have any doubts that they are rushing in too soon. We have asked them if it is for real and they have said yes.”
And even though the two are young un’s with Wright being Ã‚Â 19, and Campbell Bower, 21, they’ve got their priorities straight while on set, with no horsing around. The source confirmed, Ã‚Â “They are both very professional, so when they are filming, there is no smooching or playing around.Ã‚Â Also they are not really in the same scenes. Jamie is often on the set just to watchÃ‚Â Bonnie and spend time with her between takes.” Awwww, mazel tov you two!
Try not to scream for one second, kids. Harry Potter heroine Ginny Weasley and Twilight‘s Caius are reportedly engaged. Bonnie Wright, who plays the flame-haired key to Harry’s heart, and Jaime Campbell Bower – icy, cruel Caius to Twi-hards - have been the epicenter of rumors ever since witnesses overheard them talking about wedding plans at a Gucci party in London last week.
The news is a tad incestuous too, since Jamie is slated to play Gellert Grindelwald in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” It’s a match made in franchise heaven! Oh, and Ms. Wright was also trying to hide a really big rock on her left hand all evening. You may resume screaming now.
Harry Potter nerds everywhere, get ready to pee your Invisibility Cloaks with excitement: Author J.K. Rowling has confessed that she hasn’t ruled out writing another book in the Potter series.
During the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, Rowling attended and took questions from the kids in attendance and said that she plans to continue writing, saying, “I’m quite sure in the not-too-distant future I will bring out another book.”
Not necessarily a Harry Potter book, mind you, just a new book. When asked specifically about the Potter series, she said she may revisit those characters “maybe 10 years from now.” We’re not sure we can wait that long; why must you wave this in our faces only to withhold it for ten more years, J.K.? We can’t even wait for the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 to come out and that’s in theaters everywhere November 19, 2010! We need a butterbeer to calm ourselves and get our fan-fiction-writing juices flowing in the meantime. [Photo: Getty Images]
