Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Year Six, and there’s a sense of an ending at Hogwarts—and not just because Ron plays his last game of Quidditch. Harry Potter is growing up, dealing with facial hair and passes from a comely café waitress. Indeed, romantic entanglements almost take precedent over Harry’s quest for Voldemort’s weak spot. This should suit his more hormonal fan-base fine. Unbelievers may find it all a tad talky until Bellatrix Lestrange shows up to prove that evil’s playing for keeps. Roll on The Deathly Hallows!
Extras: Deleted scenes, a doc on author J.K. Rowling‘s hectic life, and a teaser for the big two-part finale.

Oh, Hermoine Granger, how you’ve grown. Emma Watson made her big screen debut in 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and has been hitting red carpets and fashion shows ever since. Never a shy fashionista (note the floral camouflage number in 2002), Watson’s sense of style has evolved into one consistently praised on the Best Dressed lists. Now the face of Burberry, Watson has refined her look into that of sophistication with a splash of sexy. Take a closer look at the evolution below.
Watson’s latest gig as Hermoine, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, hits theaters July 15th.
In the Harry Pottersphere, Emma Watson has risen to fame as a spirited member of Hogwart’s clique of kid wizards. Off the set, 19-year-old Watson is making her mark in the fashion world. She’s frequently seen romping around London in chic ensembles and earlier this spring, she proved her model worth in a stunning Interview spread. Now, the budding star has become the new face of Burberry, filling the shoes of supermodel Kate Moss. Watson’s role as the feisty Hermoine may have helped her land the deal. Burberry’s creative director Christopher Bailey stated, “I felt Emma would be strong enough to hold the campaign as the only girl, and I loved the idea of her being surrounded by these young, cool British guys.”
