Helena Bonham Carter: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the British Actress

Posted By Erin Whitney on Jul 5th 2013 2:23PM
Getty Helena Bonham Carter has made a habit out of playing fantastical, eccentric characters. The British actress has cut off heads as the zany Red Queen in "Alice in Wonderland," cursed helpless muggles as Bellatrix Lestrange in "Harry Potter," and even served up fresh, hot meat (not the good kind) pies as Mrs. Lovett in "Sweeney Todd." In "The Lone Ranger," which opens this week, she plays a... read more

Emma Watson Reteams With Warner Bros. for 'Game of Thrones'-esque Trilogy

Posted By Drew Taylor on June 06, 2013
Getty Emma Watson, who plays a hilariously deranged version of herself in this weekend's wonderfully weird "This is the End" and a superficial kleptomaniac in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" (also this weekend), is reteaming with her "Harry Potter" collaborators, producer David Heyman and studio Warner Bros., for what's being described as a "Game of Thrones"-esque fantasy trilogy. Seven hells!...

After Harry Potter: Contenders for the Next Page-to-Screen Series

Posted By The Moviefone Mama on August 08, 2011
'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 may have shattered every box office record, but the sad truth is that the series is now officially done. And while we won't be visiting Hogwarts again on the big screen (at least until the inevitable remake in a couple of decades), there are plenty of young-adult book adaptations in the works that could conjure at least a fraction of the 'Potter' fr...

5 British Actors We Would Have Loved in 'Harry Potter'

Posted By Annette Bourdeau on July 07, 2011
Bill Nighy once famously complained of being the only English actor who hadn't been cast in a 'Harry Potter' film. Luckily for him (and us!), he was offered the role of Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour shortly after. Though it certainly seems like every high-profile British actor from Emma Thompson to Helena Bonham Carter to Alan Rickman to Gary Oldman has appeared in the franchise at s...

By the Numbers: Harry Potter Stats and Trivia You Might Not Know

Posted By Sandie Angulo Chen on July 07, 2011
This is it, folks. Those posters that say "It all ends" aren't lying. With 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' the most successful film franchise in movie history is coming to its epic conclusion, and all we can do is brace ourselves for one final battle and wax nostalgic for the seven books and eight movies that made us all believe in magic. Before we take that last trip to Hogwa...

New 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2' Trailer Debuts at MTV Movie Awards

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
Harry ... Potter. Just the name, spoken in that creepy, deliberate way by the Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) makes us shiver every time. We also got shivers from the new trailer from the eagerly anticipated (and very last -- sniff, sniff) 'Potter' film, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' that debuted last night at the MTV Movie Awards. The epic footage awaits you after the jum...

MTV Movie Awards Preview: Big Names, Bigger Sneak Peeks

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
Sure, we're deeply invested in who wins that nifty Golden Popcorn trophy for 'Best Kiss' at this Sunday's MTV Movie Awards (our bet's on Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis for their 'Black Swan' smooch). But we're also really amped to see exclusive trailers from 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' 'Breaking Dawn' and 'Super 8,' plus the usual parade of hot stars. This year, look for ...

Silver Spring, Md. 3:16AM In the crowded Washington D.C. suburb of Silver Spring, Md., one extremely caffeinated and extremely tired entertainment reporter braved the throngs of wannabe Hogwarts students, frat boys, and costumed fangirls to ask the 'Potter' faithful what they thought of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I.' But first, a brief timeline of wh...
