"Half-Blood Prince" a Summer Movie FavoriteHBP Film
Reuters is reporting this morning that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the most anticipated by movie goers, according to a recent a poll. According to the results, "thirty-nine percent of respondents in an online poll released on
Thursday by AOL website Moviefone.com named "Harry Potter and the
Half-Blood Prince" the summer movie they most want to see."
The article continued:
Among the most anticipated movies, the sixth installment in the "Harry Potter" saga was followed by: 29 percent for "Star Trek"; 12 percent each for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"; 7 percent for "Terminator Salvation" and 2 percent for comedy "Bruno."
Moviefone also released their HBP set visit preview last week, and among the various bits of news in their piece, Rupert Grint stated that for the kiss his character Ron Weasley shares with Lavender Brown (Jessie Cave) it took ten times to get it right: "We were both quite nervous and [director David Yates] was really good and only let it go on for about 10 takes." Only? To make matters worse, Grint and Lavender were performing for a live audience. "I had a room full of people cheering," Grint says.
Dan Radcliffe also had a funny story about filming a breakfast scene in the Great Hall as follows:
4. Radcliffe isn't exactly Homer Simpson when it comes to bacon.
During the scene we watched filmed, Harry and Ron discuss a forthcoming Quidditch match over breakfast in the Hogwarts dining hall; and take after take we watch them nibble on seemingly fresh plates of bacon and eggs. Sounds like a food lover's dream, right? Wrong. Radcliffe was so sick and tired of bacon, he took to feeding a 10-year-old extra who couldn't get enough of it. "I've been turning around and shoving all my bacon onto his plate just to amuse myself," Radcliffe laughs. "He seems to be having a good time." Mmmm?
