Because there’s absolutely nothing that can’t be improved by more Harry Potter, Universal Studios will be expanding the Wizarding World of Harry Potter into Universal Studios proper. The current section is in the Islands of Adventure, but starting next year you’ll be able to get your Harry Potter on in either park. Islands of Adventure will continue to be Hogsmeade and Hogwarts and they will build a chunk of London and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios. Finally you’ll be able to take a short walk from Amity Island to The Leaky Cauldron, like god intended. And the best bit, the most wonderful bit, is that they will connect the two parks allowing you to ride from “London” to “Hogsmeade” on the Hogwarts Express. I could cry.

The only unfortunate part about this video is that a couple of movie franchises get repeated, Ghostbusters and Star Wars. Also, not sure about the Wild West gun, is that Clint Eastwood? The end is a little overkill. You’ll see why.
No, this is not the best Batman impression, but it is a creative use green screen. Somehow when he tells Han Solo he loves him, it gets to me. Some moments are better than others, but if you were always wondering what Batman would be like as Dorothy in Wizard of Oz, here you go.
Here’s a good way to end the week. Several minutes of Gary Oldman yelling at everyone and everything in sight. It’s kind of wonderful. If you’re unclear on which specific Gary Oldman character is screaming at someone for some reason, you can see the list of all the movies used at Flavorwire.
Hint: The one screaming about Azkaban is from Harry Potter.
Hint 2: If you ask for a table at Outback, and they hand you that little beeper thing, do not yell “I’ve done my waiting! Twelve years of it! In Azkaban!” They do not appreciate that.
The crowd absolutely loves these guys. It helps the actual Luna Lovegood is reprising her role for…this. There’s some issues here, but since this is technically a staged reading (and by technically all I mean is that they read the scripts as they do it) you can look past it. I am concerned about the level of appreciation the audience has. That guy looks nothing like Ron. There’s at least 9 more parts after this so if you want to see the entire Harry Potter musical be my guest.
I thought the LEGO Hogwarts that LEGO sold me was cool, with four little sections representing all the best bits of the castle. It was nice. But it sure as hell wasn’t a 400,000 piece model intricately detailing almost every bit of the Hogwarts from the film. That’s better. That’s what Alice Finch has constructed, and you can swing on by her flickr account to see all the little bits in greater detail, including the covered wooden bridge! I love that bridge!
Oh boy, it’s another Kinect game! Point your hand at the screen and have it shoot stuff in the general direction that you pointed! Wave your arms spastically to stimulate fighting a tree. Lean in two completely different directions to ride a broom. All this and… Well basically just those things, but with different shit on the screen for a couple hours.
And as an added bonus, you can zap your face into the game! You can finally run the hallways of Hogwarts and have your own wizarding adventure! Or, no, actually, you’ll just have Harry Potter’s wizarding adventure. Just with your face. But no one notices. Like you Quantum Leaped yourself into Harry Potter. And you’re the only person that sees your own face. Because there’s no Al. And you don’t need Ziggy, because you’ve seen the movies a dozen times.
Look at him! He Accio-ed broom and Windgardium Leviosa-ed for so long that he became a demon! All those angry mothers that fought to keep those super dangerous Harry Potter books from school libraries knew what they were talking about. Clearly.
No, this is the first promotional pic from Horns, a movie where Harry Potter wakes up one day and has… Horns. Listen, we live in a post “Man on a Ledge” world. Movie titles have to be as literal as possible. We’re just lucky it’s not called “Harry Potter Has Horns”. Anyway, these horns are not a good thing, get him in a lot of trouble, and then maybe he manifests really shitty superpowers? I dunno. I didn’t read the book. I was waiting for the film adaptation, from the director of… Haute Tension and Piranha 3D? Shit. See you later, high hopes.
Before I get into this, I am not a fan of the acronym BAMF. Same with GOAT and YOLO. Stop it, everyone. We get it, you are lazy. Also BAMF should be reserved for Nightcrawler and comics, but that’s another story.
Stupid title aside, this is interestingly creative take on putting all of your “strong” female characters together in the same piece of media. Exceptions of course to Bella and the tail end of Hermione (she seemed to get weaker as the series went on, and seriously, where did Ron come from?). Anyway, I’m curious where this goes, especially since I’m only familiar with two of the franchises here. Great “What if?” scenario going on.
We mentioned it was coming, and now it’s here… soon. That gigantic box set has arrived and contains 31 discs, blueprint of Hogwarts, a replica horcrux amulet, and a whole bunch of other crap. You can pick this thing up in September for the very reasonable price of $500. Or you could eat for the month.
