Looming over the skies of London...is Severus Snape! Well more like a poster heralding the premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which will take place today in Leicester Square, London, England. Crews have been hard at work prepping the area for the event and we now have photos from the scene here thanks to TLC staffer Wendy. REMEMBER: You can watch the premiere LIVE TODAY AT 1:00pm (6 pm GMT) VIA THIS LINK.  Confirmed to attend are the following:
Harry Potter author J.K. ROWLING; actors: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Jim Broadbent, Robbie Coltrane, Helena Bonham Carter, Helen McCrory, Julie Walters, Tom Felton, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch, Matt Lewis, James and Oliver Phelps, Jessie Cave, David Thewlis, Natalia Tena, (possibly Dame Maggie Smith), Hero Finnes Tiffin, director David Yates, producers David Heyman and David Barron with a few surprise guests. STAY TUNED! If you are going, please send in your reports and photos to staff@the-leaky-cauldron.org Have a great time!

UPDATE: The London paper reports that many fans have been camping out all night in anticipation of the premiere today. "Student Samantha Blum, 22, was among six German students first in line. She said: "We got here at 10am on Monday because we are crazy about the film and want to see the stars. I want to see Helena Bonham Carter and get autographs.

There’s an article on CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/07/07/michael.jackson.web.traffic/index.html) talking about how the Jackson may task the web. For example,

“…if demand for the memorial tickets is anything to go by, it is highly likely that some sites could struggle with the demand.”

Siriusly awesome pic of Snape but, like the poster way back on Page 1, I thought from the article’s title it was going to be either sjy writing or, a giant picture of Snape behind an airplane. But, it is still one awesome pic … that’s one poster I would just love to have :D

I hate when it skips so much and there’s a gap between the video and audio…oh well, I guess the bandwidth on the net is going haywire today since everyone’s tuning into this plus MJ’s memorial.

I am sorry that I missed it and was not able to watch it alive! Still, based on the pictures that have been posted so far, it was a spectacular and elaborate affair, though it was unfortunate that rain had to strike. :(
