Based on J. K. Rowling‘s best-selling fantasy novels which were released between 2001 and 2011, the Harry Potter adaptations are the highest-grossing film series of all-time. Predominantly a story which was written for children, Hogwarts and its pupils quickly took the interest of people of all ages from all around the world.
We all know the Robert Pattinson of the Twilight Saga which began in 2008. The Edward Cullen that teenage girls drool over (I being one of them). But I’m much more interested in his roles in other work. His lead role as Tyler Hawkins in Remember Me, released on DVD this week, a heartbreaking tale of love and family relationships. His appearance, and death, as Cedric Diggory in the even more popular Harry Potter (And The Goblet of Fire) franchise in 2005. So I decided to do a little research into other films he has been in, or is currently in production of, to set myself, and possibly others, a small playlist of films to watch over the summer.
Directed by Mike Newell and based on the fourth book in J.K. Rowling‘s Harry Potter series of novels, sees Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) return for their fourth year at Hogwarts as Harry’s famous lightning-bolt scar begins aching and causing him mysterious visions. Introduced to yet another Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, former dark wizard catcher Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson), Harry’s wishes for an uneventful school year are almost immediately shattered when he is unexpectedly chosen, along with fellow student Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson), as Hogwarts’ representative in the Tri-Wizard Tournament. Worse still, Harry doesn’t realize that the most feared wizard in the world, Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), is anticipating the tournament, as well.
