Leaky will be on the scene and have full coverage live from the event. The final installment of the Harry Potter films will be out in the US on July 15.
Yeah it comes out on the 15th, the premiere is generally before it comes out, which is what makes it the premiere =P
Where did WB release this info? Someone who’s working on the London prem told me that WB would be releasing info about that at some point this week, and to check their website, but I don’t know where they mean…
Avery Hall sucks! it is the worst place to be for premiere’s. Dont bother being there early because no matter where you stand you will not get to see any of the stars. They cover up the red carpet area and MAYBE the stars will roll their windows down to say hi. Traffic is going to be happening and of course they will not close the roads for the premiere. Dont get stuck by the benches! I almost lost my cool because I ended up being crowded and literally up against a bench. I can party with the “gang” at the midnight show.
Probably a big reason the NY premiere is on the 11th is because “How to Succeed” is dark on Mondays, so Dan’s free. You have to feel for him though, the show’s dark the prior Thursday/Friday so he can fly to London for their premiere, do that, then fly back for the weekend performances of the show. And I’d imagine he’ll be doing press/shows for the movie interspersed with his Broadway performance.
I think what’d be more interesting is if the whole cast decided to go to a Broadway performance and you could attend that with them. Kind of like I would’ve wanted to see Emma’s reaction to watching Dan in Equus…heh heh. :)
