Last 'Harry Potter' book becomes 2 films

LOS ANGELES - Harry Potter was the center of seven novels, but he'll star in eight films. The final book in the wildly successful series will be made into two films, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Producers are expected to announce Thursday that J.K. Rowling's last "Potter" installment, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," will be split into two parts on the big screen. The first film is slated for release in November 2010, with part two following in May 2011.

"It was born out of purely creative reasons," producer David Heyman told the Times. "Unlike every other book, you cannot remove elements of this book."

The two final "Potter" films will be shot concurrently, much like the blockbuster trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy novel "The Lord of the Rings."

Another famous Tolkien tome, "The Hobbit," is also being split into two live-action movies set for back-to-back shooting to begin next year.

Filming on the sixth "Potter" flick, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," began in September.

"It's been brilliant," said star Daniel Radcliffe. "It's also, I think, the funniest of the films so far."

The "Potter" film franchise has pulled in $4.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

I'm still not going to see it. But it is nice that someone FINALLY gives a rat's ass about the story and not making some flashy piece of crap with no substance.

So I watched this movie on the plane to Japan and...no. Not good. Now, compared to POA, this was so much better, but it still wasn't good. For example:

1.)Emma Watson. Her acting just gets worse and worse. Crispy fried Jayne Mansfield on a cracker, she was terrible!

2.)Katie Leung's accent was really thick and it was hard to understand her.

3.)Mad Eye Moody looked more comical than frightening. I wanted to laugh everytime he was on screen.

4.)The tension between Ron and Hermione was virtually nonexistent (see #1 for part of the reason).

5.)You saw NOTHING of the Qudditch World Cup. Literally, it went from the opening ceremony with the Leprechauns and Viktor Krum and then it cut to everybody in the tent talking about the match. In the grand scheme of things, the World Cup isn't that important, but with they way they did it, they might as well have not shown it at all.

6.)WTF was with the dances when the students from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang were entering the Great Hall? Now, granted, the Durmstrang entrance was kind of cool, but the Beauxbatons was just retarded. Especially when they decided to do it in slo-mo.

7.)No Veelas. I was irritated about that, especially since Fleur Delacour is supposed to be part Veela. Why else would have Ron been compelled to ask her out?

8.)The dress robes looked like regular outfits. Now, granted, I really had no idea how those were supposed to be envisioned, but they looked like Muggle formal wear. And dammit, Hermione was supposed to be wearing blue!

9.)Emma f-ing Watson! Ye gads, I think they only casted her because she looked the closest to Hermione, even though they refuse to give her the big teeth and frizzy hair.

I can't believe that after everything that was wrong with PoA, and the awkward Fleur casting, the thing psychotic Dan Radcliffe fans people are most upset about is who they casted for Cho Chang. There were 3 physical descriptions of Cho: 16, long black hair, and Asian. I'm pretty sure they nailed that. Get over it.

Wow, I know this is kinda late considering the movie just came out but I just found this community.

Why the hell didn't they go over the Marauder backstory? A large part of the reason why PoA is my favorite book is because I find the whole Sirius/Peter switcheroonie so interesting. And just everything with the Marauders. In the movie, they barely mention anything. They barely mention why Sirius is innocent! My friend who hasn't read the books was so lost at that point. She couldn't understand why one minute Sirius was evil and the next he was good. That whole Shrieking Shack was way too short. It was so rushed and to me, that's the most pivotal part of the book.

Poor Ron. Ron is my favorite character and I adore Rupert. I still don't understand why they gave half of us lines to Emma and that random fat child. People have probably mentioned this, but Ron is so much more than an idiot and the movies do no job of showing this. In fact, they don't really show any of the character's depths. It's like the surface of the person and that's it. Nothing underneath. And I'm not gonna take their excuse that it's a movie and that there's limited time constraints. I've seen movies where you can see the person and they were probably shorter than PoA.

Emma. My Lord. I didn't really mind her in the previous two films but she was god-awful in this one. Hermione would never say the hair line and did anyone else notice how she moved her head to the rhythem of Ron's "You'll suffer but be happy about it." What an idiot. How the heck did Hermione know what Ron was gonna say? She didn't and that's the point. Everyone says that Hermione wouldn't wear pink but I think she would but not like THAT. Maybe a conservative sweater or something.

I think my problem with these movies is that I get so excited to see them and I think they're okay when watching them and then when I get the DVD, I can't even watch them anymore cuz they make me so mad. There's so much wrong. They're not the types of movies that you can watch over and over again and LOVE each time.
