What would Daniel Radcliffe's boggart look like? It might take the shape of a thirty-something Radcliffe resting on his laurels.
For many people in their early twenties, having an established career and many millions of dollars might mean that it’s time to take a lengthy sabbatical, but that is definitely not the case for this Hogwart’s alum. After wrapping up Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the actor worked on a chilling Victorian-era ghost story, The Woman in Black (due out February 3, 2012), followed by a starring role for months on end in a Broadway musical, and he's also working on a screenplay. Radcliffe seems to have no plans to slow down.
In a recent interview with MTV, where the Harry Potter star was deemed to be the actor they were most thankful for, Radcliffe declared that the “worst-case scenario” for his life in ten years would be that he would be not working. The young actor explained that if he decided to pursue a different, non-movie related career that would be fine, as long as he was doing something. He just wants to be working.
The best case scenario? Plenty of movie roles under his belt, with perhaps a directing credit or two as well. He also reveals that he would love to direct a movie adaptation of a future J.K. Rowling novel which sounds like a project everybody could get excited about. Watch the interview >> Posted 11.28.11 by Mandy
The Woman in Black is already creating quite a stir, since the release of it's creepy and mysterious trailers. Particularly because this is the break away film for Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe. Since wrapping up the final film for the series, Radcliffe has been working hard to recreate his image from the famous, young wizard we have known him as.
Radcliffe portrays a young lawyer who voyages to an isolated English village in order to settle a recently deceased woman's estate. There, he encounters a vengeful and disdainful ghost who has been menacing the locals. From the looks of it, dealing with this haunting will not be an easy task.

In a rather obvious attempt to bolster 4th quarter Blu-ray and DVD sales for the Harry Potter franchise, Warner Bros. announced yesterday that it will stop shipping all Harry Potter titles starting on December 29th of this year. The final movie in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, isn't even available until November 11, giving it only seven weeks on store shelves.
No reason for the moratorium was given in the official announcement, which leads us to believe that the Dark Lord, himself, must have been behind the decision.

Burbank, CA – October 24, 2011 – Harry Potter, the #1 motion picture franchise of all time, will soon disappear from shelves, as Warner Bros. stops shipping all Harry Potter theatrical film titles (including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ – Part 2, and Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection) as of December 29, 2011 (moratorium does not include digital – Electronic Sell-Through & VOD – or games). The Harry Potter franchise has grossed more than $12.1 billion for Warner Bros. Entertainment – with $7 billion at the worldwide box office for Warner Bros. Pictures and $5.1 billion for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
What does actor Gary Oldman think of most "behind-the-scenes" featurettes that show up as special features on DVD and Blu-ray releases? Well, he apparently doesn't think very highly of them, and he isn't shy about saying so.
In the trailer for When Harry Left Hogwarts, a true documentary directed by Morgan Matthews, it's clear that this isn't just another "Look What Fun We Had Making This Movie!" type of special feature. From the candid responses from Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Issacs, and Oldman, to the frank conversations with stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, to the very serious advice Emma Thompson has for her for young co-stars, this is obviously a documentary that delves a little deeper.

Now removed from the world of Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe is still the man to look to when the world of the supernatural starts causing problems.
Radcliffe's latest movie, The Woman in Black, sees the actor play Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who travels to a remote village where he soon discovers the ghostly spectre known as the Woman in Black. Despite warnings from the locals (oh, them and their warnings), Radcliffe searches for the identity of the Woman in Black and what it is she truly wants.
A new, creepy trailer for the movie, based on the 1983 novel by Susan Hill, has been released via MSN UK, and shows Radcliffe in a huge amount of trouble with no one coming to help this time. watch the trailer >> Posted 10.14.11 by Ryan
One of the long-gestating projects for actor-writer Seth Rogen has been the end-of-the-world horror-comedy Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, which we first reported on in 2008. The "Jay" of the the title is Rogen's Knocked Up co-star Jay Baruchel. To promote the production, the two actors made an eight-minute short (NSFW) that took place in a dingy apartment with a dwindling water supply in a post-apocalyptic world.
Now, after several years of waiting, it looks as though the full-length movie version is on the way, but will include more than just Baruchel and Rogen, as Rogen revealed to MTV: more cast and plot details revealed >> Posted 09.22.11 by Ryan
In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Daniel Radcliffe admitted that while he might make an occasional Japanese school girl swoon, Twilight's Robert Pattinson has had a rougher type of fame to deal with.
Radcliffe explained that the Harry Potter movie phenomenon was taking off while he was in the studio making Chamber of Secrets, so he was able to ease in to the idea of being famous. Pattinson, on the other hand, woke up one day and "suddenly was the most famous guy in the world." Not to mention the fact that every teen girl in the world was already in love with Edward Cullen when Pattinson was cast in the role. Sure, everybody loves Harry Potter, but all the ladies really love Edward. watch the full interview >> Posted 08.24.11 by Mandy
He sings, he dances, he casts spells, and apparently Daniel Radcliffe can practice law in the 19th century while rocking some awesome sideburns too! He's starring in the period ghost story The Woman in Black, and while Radcliffe looks quite handsome, the movie is starting to look pretty scary.
The second trailer for the flick gives up more of the goods than the first which only had a few eerie images and ominous chimes. From this second trailer it's clear that The Woman in Black is a good, old-fashioned ghost story in which Radcliffe is all alone in remote, old, English house that's full of creepy toys and dark hallways. Really, there's no better place for a haunting to take place. Watch the trailer >> Posted 08.17.11 by Mandy
The kids at Next Movie have given us a little something to brighten the work day. Along with Old Red Jalopy, they've remade classic album covers with Harry Potter characters as stand-ins for the musicians. We always knew there was something vaguely Elvis-y about Snape, and these guys have confirmed it. Though we have to admit the angry scowl doesn't have quite the charm and charisma The King's smile conveyed. We also agree that Dobby would have been a great addition to the Queen lineup. The only thing that disappoints us? We would've liked to have seen Voldemort with Joey Ramone's haircut as well as his outfit. Check out the full set. Posted 08.10.11 by Mandy
It doesn't open for another two days, but according to Deadline the final chapter of the Harry Potter saga already has record-breaking box office numbers.
Right now, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 accounts for 91% of Fandango's daily ticket sales, and the 3-D ticket sales alone have the highest ticket sales of any movie on Fandango for this year. This means, that just the 3-D sales have already beat out the pre- and post-release Fandango ticket sales for The Hangover Part II, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon with 48 hours to go until the official release.
