JK Rowling The Casual Vacancy plot details revealed
JK Rowling The Casual Vacancy plot details revealed

Harry Potter writer JK Rowling is set to release her brand new book, titled The Casual Vacancy later this year and now some key plot details have been revealed. JK Rowling has previously stated that her new book will be extremely different to Harry Potter and now we get a rough idea how.

A publication announcement revealed, “When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.”
 
It added, “Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils… Pagford is not what it first seems.”
 
It then continued, “And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?”
 
The Casual Vacancy is set to be published by Little, Brown and Company on September 27.
Tom Felton discusses Harry Potter studio tour
Tom Felton discusses Harry Potter studio tour

Harry Potter actor Tom Felton, who played the character Draco Malfoy in the hit movie series, has revealed how impressed he is with the Harry Potter studio tour. Tom admitted that it is much more impressive than how the actual studio that they filmed the movies in looked.

Felton explained, “I’m blown away. More fool me for thinking that Warner Bros. would do something small and half hearted. Quite the opposite. This is one of the most elaborate stages and set ups that I’ve ever seen in my life and I’ve been here for a while, obviously, but I’ve still never seen the sets displayed like this in such condition, so I’m hugely excited to be back.”
 
He added, “The One difference I suppose is the fact that this all flows beautifully from set to set. We used to have sort of, potions classroom, portaloo then you’ve got the great hall etc. So this is somewhat displayed a bit nicer.”
 
Tom Felton currently has four movies which are due to be released this year, while he then currently has two more movies due out next year and a further movie planned for release in 2014.
Daniel Radcliffe and Rosie Coker vs Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Daniel Radcliffe and Rosie Coker vs Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

It seems that one of the most unlikely friendships in Hollywood history has emerged, as Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and his girlfriend Rosie Coker, have become quite close with Hollywood power couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

It has been claimed that the four of them can often be seen playing a spot of tennis together and, while the games can become fairly intense and rather competitive, they all have a laugh and a joke at the end. Daniel Radcliffe is said to be a fairly handy tennis player and Rosie Coker is not too bad either.
 
However, they young couple are believed to have often let Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie win a few games, to keep things tight and to keep them coming back for more. Angelina is said to be very feisty on the tennis court and is quite the sore loser.
 
Surely it will not be long before we see Daniel Radcliffe starring alongside either Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie on the big screen. Maybe Daniel could play Angelina’s love interest to make the tennis atmosphere a little more intense than it already is.

Harry Potter prequel to be made
Harry Potter prequel to be made

The Harry Potter movie franchise is one of the most financially success movie franchises ever and it seems that the production company is not yet ready to give up on it. It has been reported that a Harry Potter prequel is currently in the early stages of development.

The Harry Potter prequel will centre around the young days of the teachers of Hogwarts, including Dumbledore and it will also see Harry’s parents playing quite a major role. It is not yet clear with the prequel will be a one of or will lead up to a new series of movies.
 
There have been suggestions that the Harry Potter prequel could see Voldermort involved, although a new evil villain is expected to be the focus of the movie. It has also been claimed that the cast members from the Harry Potter movies will be offered cameo roles in the prequel.
 
Daniel Radcliffe has previously stated that he would like to play Harry Potter’s father if the franchise was ever to get remade but it is unlikely that he will play him in the prequel. With scripting for the movie not yet underway, do not expect to see the Harry Potter prequel before 2015.

The Hunger Games doubles its money
The Hunger Games doubles its money

The Hunger Games movie was made on a huge budget of $100m but after its opening weekend at the box office, that figure seems small. The Hunger Games more than  doubled that amount since it opened, with a worldwide gross of over $210m.

It is fantastic news for everybody involved in the movie and even Lionsgate themselves could not have predicted such a huge income. The Hunger Games becomes the third biggest opening weekend of all time in the US, where it managed to rake in $155m. That gross is also the highest ever non sequel movie and highest ever non summer movie.
 
With those sorts of figures, The Hunger Games sits behind only Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and The Dark Knight, having beaten the likes of Twilight and Spider-Man. With that said, it is now a certainty that The Hunger Games sequels, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, will be made into big screen hits.
 
It would also not be surprising if both of The Hunger Games sequels went on to make even more money than The Hunger Games has. With the rate The Hunger Games is bringing in money, it will surely not be long before it hits the $1b mark.
 
Have you seen The Hunger Games? What did you think of it?
Daniel Radcliffe reveals post Harry Potter nerves
Daniel Radcliffe reveals post Harry Potter nerves

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed how he had never really thought about what life would be like after the Harry Potter movies, until the final film began to draw to a close. Daniel admitted that he became quite nervous about the prospect of finding new work but claims that he soon calmed down once he was given the script for the Indie movie The Woman in Black.

Radcliffe explained, “I hadn’t thought that I’d be sad at all when it came to finishing the films, but then it happened and I was weeping. When you’re doing something for that long with the same people, you kind of start thinking, God, can I do anything else? I kept saying to people, What am I going to do now? But soon after, I was on a plane reading the script for The Woman in Black. I moved on very quickly.”
 
Daniel Radcliffe was recently involved in an anti bullying public service announcement in support of gays and lesbians, a cause which he has support for quite some time. Daniel Radcliffe has previously admitted that he had a blast working on The Woman in Black and admitted that he would not mind if he was making Indie movies for the rest of his career.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling discusses new book

It appears that JK Rowling is set to release a brand new book and, although she claims that it is very different from the Harry Potter series, the Harry Potter fans are bound to jump straight on board with it. JK Rowling has admitted that her new book is set to be aimed at a much older audience than the Harry Potter series but again, that is unlikely to deter the Harry Potter fans.

Rowling explained, “Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series, which has been published so brilliantly by [publisher] Bloomsbury and my other publishers around the world.”
 
She added, “The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has brought me, and with that new territory it seemed a logical progression to have a new publisher. I am delighted to have a second publishing home in Little, Brown, and a publishing team that will be a great partner in this new phase of my writing life.”
 
JK Rowling has previously stated that she went through a number of mixed emotions, while writing the Harry Potter series over the years and stated that it is highly unlikely that she would return to the Harry Potter story. However, she did admit that she could not rule it out completely. We will give you more news on the new JK Rowling book as we get it.
Emma Watson the domestic goddess

Former Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has revealed how she is not only a beautiful and intelligent woman but she also knows her way around the kitchen. Emma admits that it was quite difficult to go from being looked after in her Harry Potter days, to looking after herself but claims that she has made the transition fairly successfully.

Watson explained, “Doing the Potters was such a bubble, and then having to figure out how to function in the real world has been a challenge. But it’s been the small successes for me: I know how to use a washing machine, I can cook. It’s worth it to me not to feel disconnected from everything, feeling like I’m in touch with people who do other things than acting or being in the entertainment industry.”
 
She added, “I think humour has been a help. I have school friends, a group of people around me, who have carried me through this whole experience and aren’t fazed if they ask, ‘Oh what are you doing tomorrow?’ and I say, ‘I’m going up to see Mario [Testino] in Notting Hill, he’s shooting me for the new Lancôme campaign’.”
 
Emma continued, “I don’t know - it is mad, and some days I feel a bit mad, but it’s the balance that keeps me sane. I don’t fully live it, this side of my life.” You can next see Emma Watson on the big screen, starring alongside, Logan Lerman and Nina Dobrev, in the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is set to be released later this year.
Emma Watson says fashion acted as Harry Potter relief
Emma Watson says fashion acted as Harry Potter relief

Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has revealed how she used fashion as a way of getting some relief from the constant Harry Potter scrutiny. Emma has previously expressed that she will be eternally grateful to the Harry Potter franchise but she did not want people to solely associate her with the movie franchise and used fashion as a way of getting the press to talk about her in a different light.

Watson explained, “The press destroyed me over this Rodarte dress I wore once - it was bright blue with chains on it.
“I loved it. And I wore a leather Christopher Kane dress [in 2010] with embroidered flowers all over it. It wasn’t that crazy, but at the time…”
 
She added, “Fashion gave me a chance to feel like I was something outside of Potter. I’m a multi-dimensional person and that’s the freedom of fashion; that you’re able to reinvent yourself through how you dress and how you cut your hair or whatever.” Emma Watson recently admitted that she was questioned about her sexuality following her hair cut. You can next see Emma Watson on the big screen, alongside Logan Lerman and Nina Dobrev, in the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Emma Watson short hair style sparked lesbian rumour

Former Harry Potter actress Emma Watson decided to chop off the long flowing locks that became synonymous with her character Hermione Grainger, in order to detach herself from the Harry Potter character. However, Emma has admitted that, since she has had the short hair style, it has led to many people asking her if she was in fact a lesbian.

Watson explained, “I had journalists asking me if this meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now.” Emma the discussed how she received a very mixed reception for the new short hair style. She added, “It did make me realise how subjective everyone’s opinion is. Some people were crazy for it and some people just thought I’d lost my mind.”
 
Emma Watson has since admitted that she will be growing her hair back, in order to secure some future acting roles. You can next see Emma Watson on the big screen, when she appears alongside Logan Lerman, Nina Dobrev and Paul Rudd in the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is expected to be released in both the US and the UK later this year.
Daniel Radcliffe reveals reasons behind doing The Woman in Black
Daniel Radcliffe reveals reasons behind doing The Woman in Black

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe shocked quite a lot of people when it was announced that he would be starring in the Indie movie The Woman in Black but Daniel has revealed why he chose to do the film. Daniel admitted that it was important for people to get used to him playing other characters, other than that of Harry Potter.

Radcliffe explained, “It is slightly bizarre. When I got the script I did think it would be a bit of a leap for everyone to see me as a dad when they had seen me in a schoolboy outfit for the best part of 10 years. I never thought it would change people’s opinion of me, but it is a good start.  It’s a very different sort of film for people to see me in but there is never going to be one part that completely separates me from those 10 years of my life.”
 
He added, “So it’s more about getting people accustomed to seeing me in different films and keeping busy.” Daniel Radcliffe has been enjoying a lot of success from The Woman in Black, which stayed top of the UK box office for another week and has currently grossed over $55m worldwide. Daniel has previously stated that he would be happy to do Indie movies for the rest of his career.
Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson: Good actors or just big names?
Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson: Good actors or just big names?

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been talking about the popularity of himself and Twilight actor Robert Pattinson claiming that their fame has more to do with the success of their respective franchise than it does their actual acting ability. Daniel admitted that he believes an actor has to stand to test of time to truly be recognised as a great actor.

Radcliffe explained, “People like me and Rob Pattinson… are at the moment big names and bankable — whatever that means. There are very few actors whose saying yes to something would mean a green light for that film. I think probably George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Johnny Depp, are the only three that have that kind of pull, and that comes from how they’ve had very long careers and are universally respected as actors and as professionals.”
 
He added, “So there’s a long way to go before we’re at that stage. I know that people, generally speaking, have only seen me in one role, and I need to prove to them that I can do other stuff” Daniel Radcliffe can currently be seen on the big screen in the movie The Woman in Black, while Robert Pattinson can next be seen on the big screen in the movie Bel Ami, which is set to be released in the US on March 2 and the UK on March 9.
