   Pre-order "Career of Evil"0 Comments

J K Rowling's upcoming novel under the guise of Robert Galbraith is now able to pre-order.

Career of Evil is the third Galbraith novel and is released on October 20th.

Accio Quote:
When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.

Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them...

A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives. You will not be able to put this book down.

You can currently pre-order on Amazon by clicking here as well as on Rowling's publisher's website soon by clicking here.

   Throne discusses "Cursed Child"0 Comments

The Times has spoken to playwright Jack Thorne to explore his involvement in the upcoming play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

About how his involvement has changed his life:

Accio Quote:
Everyone said that it’s going to make me famous. Everyone said: ‘Wait for the announcement. It’s going to change everything.’ Then I sent out a tweet on the morning, just going: ‘I can’t talk about it, but I’m so proud to be part of it,’ sort of thing and phoned up Rach [his wife> about an hour and a half later because I was in town, and I couldn’t see my computer, and I was like: ‘How many retweets has it got?’ Sort of: ‘Am I now famous?’ And she went: ‘It’s got six.’ So OK, fame hasn’t visited me yet.

About Rowling's attention to detail:

Accio Quote:
I’ve now had to read every book again and work out what spells do what. The detail that she produced is absolutely sensational. Looking back at The Fades I kind of go: ‘I wish I’d sketched the world even larger, the way that she did with Harry Potter.’ I just didn’t want to challenge the audience too much with too much stuff, so I was: ‘Always keep it simple.’ And actually, Jo doesn’t, and that’s what makes her so special. That’s the great thing about doing adaptations: you just learn so much. My job is to crawl inside her head.

   Radcliffe begins filming on "Swiss Army Man"0 Comments

The Daily Journal is reporting that production of Swiss Army Man has taken advantage of the Half Moon Bay area of San Francisco by hiring local vendors to be part of the movie.

Accio Quote:
The production alone booked over 800 hotel rooms in the area, according to the San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Film Commission.

“They also hired local caterers and film industry professionals, and the production crew ate in our local restaurants, hired local cars, used our local services and paid land owners filming location fees to film on their properties,” according to a press release sent out Monday.

“Swiss Army Man” was another feature film project to film extensively in the area, away from Los Angeles, due to the California Film Incentive Program designed to “keep film jobs in California,” according to the press release.

Not much is known about Radcliffe's character of Cliff yet.

   Wright discusses leaving film school0 Comments

OKReal recently spoke to Bonnie Wright about life after film school among other things.

Accio Quote:
I graduated film school 3 years ago. Since then, slowing down and figuring out what I actually want to do has taken a lot longer than I thought it would. Harry Potter was 10 years of my life, and when you finish a huge chapter like that, it’s this exciting new phase where you want to do new things. So then you start doing the new things, and you begin questioning yourself, thinking—is this truly what I want to be doing? When I started Harry Potter, I was fresh and young, and in a way, when I finished I was too. Because it’s such a particular world. It was one of those things you thought you had perspective on but really didn’t until you were out of it.

   Thompson discusses ageism in the film industry0 Comments

Emma Thompson recently spoke to The Radio Times about her upcoming film projects and ageism in the industry.

Accio Quote:
“It is a bit ageist,” concedes Thompson who turned 56 this year. “It would be really nice to get someone who is actually 77 to play her, but it’s a wildly comic role and I couldn’t resist.”

Accio Quote:
“So I get behind as many young female performers as I can and actually a lot of the conversations I have with them are about exactly the fact that we are facing and writing about the same things and nothing has changed, and that some forms of sexism and unpleasantness to women have become more entrenched and indeed more prevalent.”

   New Wizarding World construction images0 Comments

Mice Chat has uploaded new construction images for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Hollywood.

Accio Quote:
The entrance to the area through Hogsmeade is nearly complete and there doesn’t seem to be a scaffold in sight in the village.

Looking further out to the big E-ticket, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, we can see that the scaffolds that have once shrouded the uppermost points of Hogwarts are now receding.

Peering through the foliage we can clearly see the track for the Flight of the Hippogriff family coaster.
