   Wizarding wardrobes at the Studio Tour!0 Comments

A special six-week costume, hair and make-up effects feature will arrive at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour from Friday 21st July.

From initial sketches to the finished costume, this special feature will take visitors on a journey through the behind-the-scenes process that brought our favourite characters to life.

The event will last until Monday 4th September.


  Accio Quote:
Many of the authentic "hero costumes are displayed at the Studio Tour including those worn on screen by Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley throughout their years at Hogwarts.

Joining those on display for the first time will be a selection of outfits designed especially for glamourous Daily Prophet reporter Rita Skeeter.

Inspired by 1940s Hollywood gossip columnists, Costume Designer Jany Temime was careful to always match Rita’s ensemble to the story she was reporting such as the patterned leather suit worn to mirror the scales of the dragons used in the first Triwizard Tournament task.

Other new costumes on show will include those belonging to Hogwarts professors Lupin, Umbridge and Lockhart.

   Trailer for "Murder on the Orient Express" released!0 Comments

A trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express has been released.



Speaking to EW about the movie, Branagh stated:


  Accio Quote:
“I think what I found in the book again, and in the screenplay, was that it unleashed something very primal, very kind of grisly,” says Branagh. “I realized that we could find a way to have the fun of Agatha Christie, but have the absolutely deadly intention behind it, and the danger. I think we’re making a scarier film than people might imagine. We’re not trying to turn it into something it isn’t, but I think we’re away from the drawing room mystery, and we’re into something else. Because the book is also a dark psychological revenge drama.”

   Jack Thorne discusses "darkness"0 Comments

In a new interview with The New Statesman, Jack Thorne discusses the darkness that defines his dramas and writing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.


  Accio Quote:
There’s a line in the play: ‘People say parenting is the hardest job in the world; they’re wrong – growing up is.’ Noma Dumezweni and Poppy Miller cornered me the other day and asked if I still believe that, now I have a kid. I conceded they had more of a point than I thought originally.
