First Look: Weasley Wizard Wheezes, New Slughorn Photo in Empire Magazine
December 29, 2008, 08:06 PM
Earlier we told you the February edition of Empire Magazine would contain a new preview of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Tonight, the first scan from the magazine is in our galleries and contains our first look at Fred and George (James and Oliver Phelps) in their Weasley Wizard Wheezes shop (note the words "Magical Mayhem," then "Disastrous" on the side of the walls). Also new is a photo of the Trio (Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson) along with Professor Slughorn (Jim Broadbent) in the Three Broomsticks pub.
Thanks to reader Tracy!
Even in a small pic, Rupes looks hot!!!
Can I drool for a second on the HOTNESS OF JAMES AND OLIVER?!?!?!?
The joke shop is making me very excited.
I want to see pottercast have a big interview with Yates or a discussion about his previous work and why he is good as the final director.
The joke shop set looks good – it is a building space like the bookstore we saw in #3. I imagined it in my mind with more ‘stuff’ bursting off the shelves but we only saw one shot at one angle. Am REALLY looking forward to the phelp twins go for it and I loved their scenes in 5 (apart from the swamp bit was missing!!!).
Oooh! And look at how curly Emma’s hair is!!
Gred and Forge rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
squeeee!!!!!!! oh this looks brilliant!!!! gotta say, one of the best things of the potter films are the sets. magnificantly done! ooh i think they will pull off the www scenes really well. but im just as interested by the other pix of the trio. im guessing that theyre in the hogs head, partly cuz of the antlers on the wall. thats not a 3 broomsticks thing. and i like how sluggy is only talking to harry and GAH IT LOOKS SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!1
I love the multicolored banisters.
And I think the quality of the set design significantly increased when Cuaron, not Yates, joined the production team. POA is still the best LOOKING film of the series.
articles just wrong.
They say best movie out of the worst book
I personally love OotP…
Krystle, I thought that was odd, too. I know lots of people didn’t care for OotP, but they said it like it’s fact or something. I hardly ever hear anyone say they didn’t like OotP, and a lot of people have said it’s their favorite. I wonder who they got their information from?
hmm…. I can’t say I agreed with all of the stuff they said, like David Yates making the best and most grounded movie yet, and how stuff “actually happens” in this movie.
still good picks though, and the balloons look like the wizrockapedia logo
Krystle – I agree – O Of the Ph is one of my favourite books of the seven !
I totally agree with you guys : " He’s already made the bets of the series-from the wrost book"??huhsince when was OotP the best film and the worst book?Didn’t they mean he’s already made the shortest movie from the longest book…
btw,WWW looks fine
Amazing! If you click the image egain you can get a closer look at the details and see the article and the details of the shop, which looks amazing and wonderful, and very colourful! I’m not sure if it was in the book, because I too, imagined it as a rather small shop and cramped and cosy, but I like Yates vision! And the Three Broomsticks look really nice too Fred and George in the suits and ties is a nice detail.
wow!!! i’m really excited to see the whole shop! it looks really cool :D
