Milyen lenne Harry Potter nyomasztó, True Detective-es filozófusként?

Ez arról jutott eszembe, hogy a varázslóiskolás regényekben szereplő egyik tankönyv írójáról is készítenek egy filmet – ez lesz a Legendás állatok és megfigyelésük –, és most kiderült, hogy Colin Farrell is szerepelni fog benne.

Farrell legutóbb a True Detective nevű nyomasztó, bűnügyi sorozat második évadában szerepelt. Sajnos ez sokkal gyengébb lett, mint a zseniális első, amelyben a fura...

Shirley Henderson on Bridget Jones, Harry Potter, and reuniting with Steve Coogan for Stan & Ollie

Shirley Henderson on Bridget Jones, Harry Potter, and reuniting with Steve Coogan for Stan &amp; Ollie

The A.V. Club has never had the pleasure of sitting down with Shirley Henderson, probably best known for starring in Trainspotting, the three Bridget Jones films, and as Moaning Myrtle in the Harry Potter films. In honor of her new film, Stan & Ollie, we sat down with the actor for a video version of our interview series Random Roles.

Read This: Even Facebook likes break down along red state/blue state lines

If Facebook “likes” can be trusted as a reliable barometer of taste, Hillary Clinton’s supporters prefer Adele, George Takei, Harry Potter, and The Rachel Maddow Show. Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s supporters are more into Ted Nugent, God’s Not Dead, Adam Sandler, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac. How is this deeply divided nation ever going to agree on such hot-button issues as abortion and...

J.K. Rowling sues former employee for buying too many cats, the witchiest crime of all

Suggesting that Grindelwald isn’t the only one out there committing crimes against the wizarding world right now, BBC News reports that author J.K. Rowling is suing a former assistant for, among other things, supposedly using a company credit card to buy herself a couple of cats. (The News refuses to note whether the animals in question were secretly either familiars or animagi, but we can...

No, really, Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood are entirely different people

Sure, they both starred in multi-film sagas based on popular British fantasy novels. And, yes, they both have blue eyes, slight builds, fair complexions, and floppy hair. (In fact, The A.V. Club once cast them as brothers in the imaginary movie Baby Blues.) But actors Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood are nevertheless distinct and separate individuals with their own thoughts, ideas, and...

Call the babysitter: There’s now an adults-only Harry Potter experience

Since the beginning of the phenomenon, the biggest problem with the Harry Potter series has been that its target audience is children. That meant adult fans had to compete with the little monsters to get copies of the books the night of their release, to snag the best seats in the theater when the books became films, and to stake out a place in line for the Flight Of The Hippogriff ride at...

Eddie Redmayne is the frontrunner to play a magizoologist in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, according to Variety. The Harry Potter spinoff will be a trilogy depicting the adventures of Newt Scamander, who authors Fantastic Beasts 70 years before Harry Potter finds out he’s a wizard and buys the book in Diagon Alley. In a baffling change of pace from the U.K.-set original series, the...

As part of an overhaul of J.K. Rowling’s pottermore.com, the author has written a new story about the history of Harry Potter’s family, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A statement from website says that the story “sheds unexpected new light on the origins of the Potter family name, delves into Harry’s ancestry, [and] explains how his grandfather quadrupled the family’s fortune and how...

A valuable copy of a Harry Potter prequel, handwritten on a postcard by author J.K. Rowling, was stolen during a recent home burglary, according to Reuters, with Rowling herself asking fans for help in its safe return. The 800-word story is reportedly set three years before the boy wizard’s birth and focuses on Sirius Black and James Potter, a relatively minor tale of which Rowling concludes...

British actor and activist Emma Watson has proven more than willing to challenge her child-star image as Hermione in the Harry Potter movies with her subsequent film roles in This Is The End and The Bling Ring. But never before has she opted to beatbox in public in front of a camera. Until now, that is. As part of a video in support of a video for the He For She initiative of the UN Women...

Show business is known for being a demeaning, dispiriting, and humiliating industry, even under the best of circumstances. But for those affected by various forms of dwarfism, resulting in the stunted growth of their limbs, the situation can be especially grim. While movies and TV have gradually become more sensitive in their depiction of various genders, races, religions, and sexual...

Jason Isaacs on The OA, Harry Potter, and how he missed out on a lead role in Armageddon

Jason Isaacs is probably best known for his roles in The Patriot, Star Trek: Discovery, and of course, the Harry Potter series as Lucius Malfoy. In honor of the second season of The OA premiering on Netflix—where he plays Dr. Percy—we sat down with the actor for a video version of our interview series Random Roles.

Read This: Thanks to Marvel and Disney, endings are now obsolete

For many characters in popular, long-running franchises, there is no such thing as retirement or living “happily ever after.” Fans keep demanding new adventures of old favorites, and so familiar heroes are no longer allowed to live out their golden years in peace and seclusion. This applies manifestly to both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Star Wars saga, especially now that both are...

J. K. Rowling Twitter-fiókján válaszolt a rajongóknak. Én az évek során elolvastam párszor a könyvsorozatot, és általában érdekelnek is az ilyen részletek, de ezek a kérdések soha fel sem merültek bennem.

DC Pierson is running a tournament to determine pop culture’s biggest overachiever

For whatever reason, film and television teem with overachievers: type A strivers who charm and irritate in (sometimes) equal measure. Comedian, author, and actor DC Pierson has done society the favor of devising an appropriately competitive method of determining the most overachieving of them all. It’s called the Tournament Of Overachievers, and it’s close to crowning the one overachiever to...

Tilda Swinton takes her boarding school issues out on Hogwarts

Tilda Swinton is not a fan of Harry Potter, and it’s not just because she probably knows how wrong the books are about conjuring spells. (Just ask Swinton about apparating. We bet she knows how to do it.) No, Swinton dislikes the world of Potter because it makes kids dream of leaving their parents behind and going off to boarding schools, which she deems pretty terrible. “I think they are a...

Nearly 20 years after the death of Voldemort, Hogwarts faces a new tormentor: technologies of the 21st century. Many witches and wizards, talented though they are in the area of loud bangs and smells and sudden disappearings, are yet unable to penetrate the veiled mysteries of weak wi-fi signals, faulty Bluetooth headsets, and Spotify. Rather than adding an I.T. lesson plan to the Muggle...

Last night, I went with my girlfriend to see the new Harry Potter movie. It was, no joke, one of the best naps I’ve ever paid to take in my life.

Let me be clear: I had never fallen asleep in a movie theater before in my life. It has not happened because I typically try to limit my theater experiences to Good Films or big, animated movies meant for children, or wonderfully dumb blockbusters....

J.K. Rowling killed loads of characters in her Harry Potter series, and one of the most devastating for fans and twins everywhere was the death of prankster Fred Weasley, one of several characters killed in the Battle Of Hogwarts. On the 17th anniversary of that last showdown with Voldemort, Rowling took to Twitter to apologize about the death:

Ire is right. “Sorry” doesn’t bring him back and...
