The new issue of the magazine features this photo of actor Dan Radcliffe as Harry Potter in “Goblet of Fire” along with several other icons such as Bono from U2, Johnny Depp as Edward Sissorhands and more, as EW is showcasing 1,000 of the New Classics. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling comes in number two on their list of Top 100 New Classic Books, with the magazine noting :The first three Harry Potter novels were pure kid stuff, and then, unexpectedly, Rowling went epic and dark—killing children, resurrecting evil, and sending Harry to war.” The top ten list reads as follows:
