Am told that tickets are already sold out in many cities for showings on the first 3 days… Do you have yours? I saw it on Thursday at a press screening before the junket. So f-cking cute. And visually spectacular. And fun. And fastpaced. And if you don’t want the spoilers, STOP READING NOW. Full Story

Meet Draco Malfoy

As you know, Tom Felton’s Draco Malfoy has a very, very significant role to play in HP6 and as such is joining Daniel Radcliffe and the others on the first tier of publicity. Can’t decide if I find him attractive. Do you? It’s the shiny suit throwing me off. Don’t like. But he probably won’t be wearing it today. Full Story

Cute moment on the carpet at Harry Potter last night as Rupert Grint was working the cameras, a playful Maggie Smith came from behind him and kissed him the cheek. I LOVE HER. If for no other reason (although there are many reasons) than for that classic moment in Gosford Park, you remember? There is nothing more cutting, more demoralising, more soul-crushing than being talked down to by someone with an English accent. Full Story

Hermione…or Ginny?

Jacek was looking at these photos of Emma Watson last night and said it felt a little wrong. She is SO beautiful but not a girl, not yet a woman… Out of the Harry Potter cast, it’s always Emma who takes the style stage. Emma is the lead girl. And she’s pretty and stylish and Karl Lagerfeld loves her and she’s owned the spotlight by herself…until now? At the junkets and photo calls, Bonnie Wright has been subdued, and low key. Full Story

Out for dinner tonight in London, in town for the big premiere tomorrow. What premiere? Of course you know what premiere. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the film adaptation of the 6th book in her brilliant 7 book series. There’s no doubt Jo will be there tomorrow night. But tonight a warm-up with her husband, in trendy heels and a little black dress, she is sexy and styling and who’s more badass than JK Rowling? No equal. Full Story

Waiting, waiting, waiting…

Almost there. Not quite but almost… Tomorrow is the UK premiere of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Today, the photo call. Members of the cast were at Claridge’s this morning to kick off a media storm in advance of the carpet and more promotion later on the in the week. As usual, of course, Emma Watson is flawless. Full Story

My friend and producer Laura went to the media screening for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince yesterday in Toronto and many of you wrote in the afternoon wondering about her reaction. The verdict: it’s good. It’s very, very good. I don’t mind spoilers so she gave me most of the details but I won’t ruin it for you here. Full Story

Of course he is!

Rufus Scrimgeour is to be played by Bill Nighy! The Independent reports that Nighy told them: "I don't think I'm allowed to say it but I'm going to be in the next Harry Potter film." Squee! Bill once said that that he was the only British actor not in Harry Potter. Problem now solved. Full Story

Just over 2 weeks away…gah! It’s crawling by! In the meantime, because of the tight schedule shooting both parts of The Deathly Hallows back to back, the kids have been limited on promotion. This is why they’ve yet walk carpet after carpet all around the world, and they probably don’t have to either. Full Story

Emma 6 weeks

Emma Watson dressed up in London last night for a Rodarte party. Want her dress. Sigh. Still 6 weeks to go. They previewed a clip at the Movie Awards on Sunday but it was highly unsatisfactory. Like, we’ve seen it all in the trailers already. Hurts to say but it was kinda weak. Not the actual scene but the fact that there was nothing new. Full Story
