I cannot wait for the 19th to see HP. I'm getting shivers thinking about it.

I totally agree that he has better chemistry with Luna.

MISCH said...

The Potter kids have grown up...adorable...
Does any one else remember Helena Bohnam Carter's first Academy Award
show.. after A Room With A View ...that black dress, I loved it...she has always marched to a different drum.

Pookie said...

eeep...poor lisa marie...she was so lovely pre-gazillion surgeries.

helena bc's brand of crazy is awesome there.

@Misch - I loved HBC in "A Room with a View".

The entire Harry Potter series was almost perfectly cast except for Ginnie Weasley. Shame. I think they cast it before they knew she was going to be Harry's love interest.

After the disaster that was "The Half Blood Prince" I am weary of what this movie will offer. I hope unlike THBP, this one is true to the book.

KellyLynn said...

I agree about Helena's style sense. She always has such a victorian-cool vibe about her.

Tom Felton looks like a young David Niven in that pic (a compliment, if you ask me). I'm really a fan of his on-screen dad, Jason Isaacs.

"It's Ginny Weasley. Does anyone else feel Harry has better chemistry on screen with Luna?"

YES! In the books, too. But Bonnie Wright makes everything SO awkward between Ginny and Harry!

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I think Luna is the sister HP never had. He's very tender with her, but not in a romantic way. As far as the Ginny Weasley romance, I think it was just easy, and typical for a "kids" book, to do that. So long as he didn't end up with Cho I didn't care.

looserdude said...

I agree with you guys above. Harry should have been with Luna. I don't think Hermione and Ron Weasley work either. What does she see in him?

FS said...

Yes, I am also wary of this film even though I am dying to see it. I think its the same director as Half Blood Prince, and that movie had the most changes from the books if I remember correctly.

Jenny said...

Always love Harry Potter photos. It's fun seeing the kids all grown up.

Jamie's Girl said...

Tom Felton rivals that Lady Antebellum guy for peanut heads!

Aimée said...

I love Emma's dress. There's been torrential rain all over the UK for the last 3 days though so i bet she was freezing :D

I have an insane girl crush on Helena <3

I t has always bugged the shit out of me that they made Harry such a cool kid in the movies. The books always refer to him having a lock of hair sticking up wildly. They can spend millions of dollars on special effects, but no one can grab some hair gel, and make his hair stick up?

Hermione is not supposed to be very pretty either. This is why I stick to the books.

Ms Cool said...

Cannot wait for the movie. Love the books and the movies. I love to share them with my son.

jax said...

forget Luna, she's a nutjob....Cho was where it was at for Harry!it got screwed up when Cedric died.

him and Ginny are awful,he has better chemistry with Hagrid.

Jackie said...

Tom Felton and Emma Watson have both really changed from Draco and Hermione. Can see both having good careers.

And yeah, never really cared for the chemistry between the onscreen Harry and Ginny. Thought they worked in the books though. Same with Ron and Hermione.

MadLyb said...

I love Emma Watson's new do. She looks amazing!

Lisa is looking a lot like her mom in that photo there (before the plastic surgery disaster).

MadLyb said...

I love Helena Bonham Carter, but I thought she was LaToya. Not good!

Sis said...

Can't wait for HP next week! But where oh where is Professor Snape/Alan Rickman photos, truly one of my favorites!

And yes at one time I thought the books were going towards a Luna and Harry pairing.

I just came from Harry Potter Land at Universal. Overwhelming, to say the least. And the ride is so, so WILD that if I had not gotten off I would have thrown up. And I am a roller coaster girl. Honeydukes was disappointing; that candy shop I was most wanting to see. But Ollivander's was awesome. They do a demonstration and select two people to be selected for a wand. My daughter and her friend were selected. Pretty freaking cool.

And butterbeer is frozen cream soda-ish.

MCH said...

@mngddess - I'm SO jealous!! I went to Orlando a few months ago with friends but no one wanted to go to Universal! I was so disappointed. I am going to have to make a special trip back so I can go to the park.

Emma Watson looks gorgeous as always!

I wanted Hermione & Harry to get together, until I realized she really liked Ron. In the end, it was ok that she ended up with Ron.

I didn't really like Ginny in the last couple books. I know Ginny always had a crush on Harry and all that jazz but I just never saw the love connection in the books, let alone the movies.

chopchop said...

Wow Emma Watson looks incredible. All other teenage girls in Hollywood take note: she's doing it RIGHT and knocking it out of the park every time. Love her.

Rupert Grint always looks so happy, like, Can you believe this is my life?! It's very cute and refreshing.

fairylights said...

Wow, Rupert Grint is actually in a suit for once, I think that's a first for these premiers, he looks good!

I adore the movies, for the most part, although the fifth one was a disappointment, but the books will always reign supreme in my mind.

Mango said...

I never got past the first Harry Potter book and movie - too boring. I know, blasphemous!

Love Helena Bonham Carter's dress.

linnea said...

Yeah, Felton looks so different. He is a cutie in real life! Did you see him in Get him to the Greek?

Can´t WAIT to see the movie!

Salsa Lover said...

Emma Watson is drop-dead gorgeous!!

And I have to say that Tom Felton looks nothing like Malfoy and for that I'm grateful as I would be worried for him being stuck in that role forever (a role he was amazing in but nevertheless...).

Beth said...

Mango--what's wrong with you? :-D Oh well--if I hadn't had a kid, I probably would not have read them either.

In any case, I hope the best for these kids and their future. And I agree, Harry and Luna had MUCH better chemistry on film and in the books.
