Today, starting at 7:30pm Eastern Time/4:30pm Pacific Time, TheFandom.net is going to be hosting another Google Hangout! If you missed our very first episode, don’t worry, you wouldn’t have needed to see it before watching this one to understand what’s going on.
But you certainly won’t want to miss tonight’s hangout, because we’ll be announcing some cool giveaways to help officially launch the new sites that have been basically transferred from tfgeekgirl.com to their own fandom!
We’ll be announcing the prizes and how you can enter each one as well as some news from our various fandoms.
This is probably the cutest casting I’ve ever seen. Check out how they got the kittens to play their roles for Professor Dolores Umbridge’s plates in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie during Animal Actors Week at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London.
If you didn’t know, there’s a comedy coming out that stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, titled The Internship.
They’re two adults who end up taking an internship at Google after they lose their sales jobs. What’s interesting is that apparently, at Google, they play a certain game that you may all be familiar with. Check out the trailer below (around the 1:36 mark)!
At the Olivier Awards in London, held April 28th, Red Carpet News got a chance to catch up to Daniel Radcliffe to talk briefly about what he’s learned from doing live theater, what he has coming up in both stage and movie productions in the upcoming year, and of course, some talk about Harry Potter.
It’s nice to know that he’s swiftly moved on successfully after the Harry Potter films, and doesn’t at all seem to resent ever having done them, as well he shouldn’t. He’s definitely still making a name for himself and that’s nice to see.
We’ve already seen Harry Potter and Fred Weasley breeze through their battles to move on to Round 2. Now we have Severus Snape up against Miss Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games, and Fred’s twin brother, George, is up against Percy Jackson! Who’s going to move on from this set? Vote for the most epic!
Hello! If you haven’t heard yet, The Clash of The Epic Characters (#COTEC) started today! TheFandom.net is pitting specific characters from 10 of our beloved YA novels/series’ in a battle for the most epic character of them all!
Anyway, this first set of battles has Harry Potter vs. Indie from Matched, and Fred Weasley vs. Ky Markham, also from Matched.
I highly recommend that you put in your votes! You can vote multiple times and this set of battles ends at just before midnight 8/26/12. Then another set of battles will begin on Monday, 8/27/12.
We’ll keep you updated on who’s next for that as well.
It’s images like this one that makes you glad to have Twitter and be able to follow actors, especially when they’re willing to share part of their experiences. Matthew Lewis (@Mattdavelewis), who played Neville Longbottom, was able to do just that with this tweet. Can you name them all?
If you can (without looking at the tags, of course), 100 points to your house! Just comment below.
Thanks to Digital Spy, we get a little behind-the-scene clip from the Wizard’s Collection DVD/Blu Ray set, where the Quidditch scene from the Chamber of Secrets is discussed. And you can get a glimpse of a young Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton discuss what they’re supposed to do.
A new behind-the-scenes video from the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection has debuted online.
In the 90-second preview, released through Sugarscape, a young Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton are seen playfully squabbling on Quidditch brooms as they prepare to film a scene from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Director Chris Columbus also discusses the teething problems with effects in the early movies, saying: “The visual effects in the first film were done towards the end of shooting. So we didn’t have enough time to really get them to where we wanted them to be.
“In the second film I wanted the visual effects to be much better than the first, so what we did is we shot those sequences first. It really enabled us to spend five, six extra months on Quidditch.”
