Remember the old days, when most bigscreen movie sagas ended after three movies? The Trilogy era came to an end sometime in the late-2000s, when Hollywood noticed that the Harry Potter franchise was still making kabillions of dollars in its later installations, and therefore decided that every franchise could feasibly run on forever, with occasional pitstops to reboot the cast or sprinkle in some Wahlberg. But Todd Phillips long ago declared that The Hangover Part III would be the concluding chapter of the Wolfpack’s journey through the dark side of the American dream, or whatever this series is supposed to be about. The new poster for Part III makes that explicit, with an image that purposefully resembles the poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows–Part 2. Check out the Hangover poster below: READ FULL STORY
Tag: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2 (1-3 of 3)
Harry Potter fans, break out your wands and invisible cloaks.
An inside source confirms to EW that a Potter “mini movie” — following the franchise’s eighth film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 — is being filmed at the Harry Potter studios in Hertfordshire, England with cast members including Helena Bonham Carter (as evil death eater Bellatrix Lestrange).
The mini movie will appear exclusively at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter themed area at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure in Florida, as well as Potter-themed areas under construction at Universal Studios Japan and Universal Studios Hollywood. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando opened to the fan-frenzied public in 2010.
Universal Orlando spokesman Tom Schroder declined to comment when reached by EW.
