About This Club

The story of Harry Potter was only the beginning. With the new play, virtual experience, and now a new trilogy on the horizon, the magical world remains alive. Discuss the franchise with muggles here.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Sorcerer Stone: No favourite scene as such but Wizarding World recognising Harry felt good and Harry being in awe of it. Chamber of Secrets: Chamber Prisoner of Azkaban: Time Turner & Whomping Willow Goblet of Fire: Graveyard scene Order of Phoenix: Final Battle between Voldy & Dumbledore Half Blood Prince: Liquid Luck, Cave, Everyone lifting their Wands on Dumbledore death and You Dare Use My Spells on me. Deathly Hallows 1: Seven Potter, The Journey, Dobby is a Free Elf. Deathly Hallows 2: Piertotum L
  3. And MCU Phase 3 changed that. And changed it how? Biggest Movie Franchise the World has ever seen.
  4. I guess. Its resolved than. Star Wars is bigger in USA and Harry Potter is bigger elsewhere and worldwide.
  5. A foreign friend and I are big fans of Harry Potter. We actually met at a certain fancon and from then on, we became good friends regardless of our distance. We keep talking about our what-ifs of the book and the movie and we actually came up with a theory that Harry Potter is now immortal. Originally, the prophecy said that the only one who can kill Harry is Voldemort and the only one who can kill the latter is the former. However, now that Voldemort is gone, is there a reason for Harry to die according to the prophecy? Does the theory make sense or it is just probably our imaginations going
  6. It's still incredible to me how easily the overseas grosses were dominated by 3 franchises throughout most of the 2000s. I mean from the Order of the Phoenix in summer 2007 all the way until Ice Age in the summer of 2009, for those two straight years the top 10 overseas aside from Titanic was made up of 3 Lord of the Rings Films, Two Pirates of the Caribbean films and 4 Harry Potter films. In fact, from Finding Nemo in 2003 until Ice Age in 2009 not a single film ended up in the Top 10 OS that wasn't either Harry Potter of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you want to take t
  7. SS - Mirror of Erised CoS - Basilisk/Chamber PoA - Buckbeak's Flight/Time-travel sequence GoF - Graveyard/Voldy's Resurrection OoTP - Possession/Ministry Battle HBP - Cave/Wandlit Vigil DH1 - Harry & Hermione Dance/Godric's Hollow DH2 - Statues/Courtyard Apocalypse/Prince's Tale @Goffe
  8. Nothing for me compares in either book or movie form to the entire scene in the graveyard in GoF. That's my favorite scene in both mediums in this series because it is just amazingly written and narrated by Voldemort in the books, and is appropriately foggy, dark, grim, and terrifying in the movie. So glad I got to see it in LieMax last year again.
  9. Mine: Found pretty hard picking just one for HBP and POA while I struggled to find one I liked substantially better than the others in COS, DH1 and DH2. Tagging @Noctis because he's the second biggest HP stan around here
  10. Sound like a rumor to me, according to Heyman in interviews no one was signed for more than the first 2 movie being a really big surprise success and franchise not being the norm back then, even the Twilight trio was signed just for the first movie. And I doubt you could sign young child (as young as 10 year's old) for that long and for those contract to hold up in court anyway if they want to break them year's later. The kids were pretty much signed one movie at a time for all the series according to him. And apparently the big negotiation issue with Watson was school
  11. Budget went up cause WB had negotiated the trio’s salary only for 5 movies. When the sixth movie came, they had to renegotiate the contracts, and the three actors had a loooooot leverage. I even remember rumors Watson threatening to not do the following movies.
  12. Hard to tell how close to the truth those numbers are, but looking at the release date maybe it became more and more costly for WB to keep people away from the DVD revenues participation and had to accept into bigger money in advance. If you look at the negative cost/advance line here: http://deadline.com/2010/07/studio-shame-even-harry-potter-pic-loses-money-because-of-warner-bros-phony-baloney-accounting-51886/ We can assume than those movie ended costing them over 300m in generals anyway and it could have just changed when it did...
  13. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=harrypotter6.htm anyone know why this cost 100m more than the others?
  14. 1. DH2 2. POA 3. DH1 4. OOTP 5. GOF 6. COS 7. HBP 8. SS 9. FBAWTFT Deathly Hallows 2 is a near perfect movie in my eyes. Not only was it made extremely well, but it's entertaining throughout and was a fantastic send-off. Prisoner of Azkaban is definitely the best from a cinematic standpoint. AC is a fantastic director, and he made POA the first film to feel like more than just a book adaptation. Deathly Hallows 1 may suffer for most from being a build-up movie, but I love it. I grew up loving Harry, Ron,
  15. From the LOTR trilogy, NO. But then again that was not a whole decade. Regarding Hobbit,inflation and exchange rates play a huge part here. Azkaban must have sold more admissions than any Hobbit film. Furthermore,there was a big break between the LOTR and Hobbit trilogies. So yeah, Harry Potteer remains the most consistent franchise in history until today.
  16. I was not sure to understand what was going on here, before realizing that it was 2014 and that 2014 was before Force Awaken. Even then, middle earth was not that far from potter: The 6 movie average: 975 million Lowest entry: 869.3 million Last entry: 956 million Highest: 1119.1 (in 2003) Potter in 2014 was at Average: 965 million Lowest entry: 796.7 million Highest and last entry: 1341.5 million Was it really in a different realm of sustained success than Lord of the Rings ?
  17. With the destruction of the Transformers franchise (the only thing that might make me believe in the existence of a benevolent God), it goes to show just how fucking impressive Potter was at the box office.
  18. Just started the third one. I was a little late on that one but had a lot of school work and not much time. Feels delicious so far.
  19. I am changing my mind every once in a while so here are some thoughts: Rank based on which ones I enjoy/like the most: 1.) DH2 2.) DH1 3.) HBP 4.) GOF 5.) POA 6.) OOTP 7.) FBAWTFT 8.) COS 9.) SS Rank based on how well they worked with the material they had from the books. (FB excluded of cource) 1.) PoA 2.) DH1+2 3.) SS 4.) COS 5.) HBP 6.) GOF 7.) OOTP As you can see there are big differences between the 2 ranks. I think it is better to rank the movies this way considering that book ada
  20. I'm not really like HBP because too much of plot changing from book to movie,just to show teenage-romance..... I do read the book, don't worry....
  21. Depends............. a. have you read the books? b. where the hell do you get off!? HBP and DH1 to me are the best. POA I find a little over-rated and have it at rank #4 out o thef 8 HP movies. POA is brilliant in parts, damp in parts. So I can totally understand if someone likes SS, COS more than POA. OOTP to me was a missed opportunity in many ways. Probably I was spoiled by the scale of LOTRs but at some point was expecting HP to launch off to a new level and give an epic feel. OOTP was that opportunit
