A Big Week for Daniel Radcliffe on Screen and Stage

It may not be $476 million, but the Broadway revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” had its most profitable eight performances last week since beginning in February — earning $1,177,086 — at the same time that its star, Daniel Radcliffe, was setting movie box offices on fire in his final turn as the boy wizard.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” sold $168.6 million in tickets in North America alone over the weekend, and a total of $476 million worldwide. As moviegoers were lining up hours early to see the last Harry Potter film, fans of the character — and the actor — were among those filling the 1,424 seats in the Al Hirschfeld Theater during a week when Mr. Radcliffe’s face was saturating the media amid Pottermania. He was in all eight performances of “How to Succeed” last week.

Still, the musical revival has room to earn even more: Its total gross was 88 percent of its possible maximum gross  ($1.34 million) through full-price ticket sales. As for box-office records, the Al Hirschfeld’s biggest money maker remains “Elf,” the holiday season musical, which earned a high of $1.57 million during Christmas week in 2010.

Among Broadway plays, meanwhile, one of the few hits of the 2010-11 season — “The _________ With the Hat” — closed on Sunday with a sizable weekly gross of $870,024. With the closing of “Hat,” Broadway now has just three straight plays — “Jerusalem,” “Master Class,” and “War Horse.” What are the chances that “Jerusalem” (which grossed a modest $364,136 last week) or “Master Class” ($304,557 last week) now picks up more audience members who want to see a play rather than a musical? And will “War Horse” crack the $1 million ticket-sales club in a coming week, a rare feat for a play? It has come close, with a gross of $976,735 last week.

Over all, Broadway musicals and plays grossed a total of $21.3 million, roughly the same as the previous week, but  up from $19.4 million for the same week last summer. The five top-grossing shows, in order, were “Wicked,” “The Lion King,” “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” “The Book of Mormon,” and “How to Succeed.”

Emma Watson

Early life

Emma Watson was born in Paris, the daughter of British lawyers Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson. Watson has one French grandmother, and lived in Paris until the age of five. Later, following her parents’ divorce, she moved with her mother and younger brother, Alex, to Oxfordshire. From the age of six, Watson wanted to become an actress, and for a number of years she trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts, a part-time theatre school where she studied singing, dancing and acting. By the age of ten, she had performed in various Stagecoach productions and school plays, including Arthur: The Young Years and The Happy Prince, but she had never acted professionally before the Harry Potter series. “I had no idea of the scale of the film series,” she stated in a 2007 interview with Parade; “if I had I would have been completely overwhelmed.”


Harry Potter

In 1999, casting began for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (released as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States), the film adaptation of British author J. K. Rowling’s bestselling novel. Of importance to the casting directors were the lead role of Harry Potter and the supporting roles of Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, Harry’s best friends. Casting agents found Watson through her Oxford theatre teacher, and producers were impressed by her confidence. After eight auditions, producer David Heyman told Watson and fellow applicants Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint that they had been cast for the roles of Hermione, Harry and Ron, respectively. Rowling supported Watson from her first screen test.

The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001 was Watson’s debut screen performance. The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend takings and was the highest-grossing film of 2001. Critics praised the performances of the three leads, often singling out Watson for particular acclaim; The Daily Telegraph called her performance “admirable”, and IGN said she “stole the show”. Watson was nominated for five awards for her performance in Philosopher’s Stone, winning the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress.

A year later, Watson again starred as Hermione in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second installment of the series. Although the film received mixed reviews, reviewers were positive about the lead actors’ performances. The Los Angeles Times said Watson and her peers had matured between films, while The Times criticised director Chris Columbus for “under-employing” Watson’s hugely popular character. Watson received an Otto Award from the German magazine Bravo for her performance.

In 2004, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released. Watson was appreciative of the more assertive role Hermione played, calling her character “charismatic” and “a fantastic role to play”. Although critics panned Radcliffe’s performance, labelling him “wooden”, they praised Watson; The New York Times lauded her performance, saying “Luckily Mr. Radcliffe’s blandness is offset by Ms. Watson’s spiky impatience. Harry may show off his expanding wizardly skills … but Hermione … earns the loudest applause with a decidedly unmagical punch to Draco Malfoy’s deserving nose.” Although Prisoner of Azkaban remains the lowest-grossing Harry Potter film as of April 2009, Watson’s personal performance won her two Otto Awards and the Child Performance of the Year award from Total Film.

With Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), both Watson and the Harry Potter film series reached new milestones. The film set records for a Harry Potter opening weekend, a non-May opening weekend in the US, and an opening weekend in the UK. Critics praised the increasing maturity of Watson and her teenage co-stars; the New York Times called her performance “touchingly earnest”. For Watson, much of the humour of the film sprang from the tension among the three lead characters as they matured. She said, “I loved all the arguing. … I think it’s much more realistic that they would argue and that there would be problems.” Nominated for three awards for Goblet of Fire, Watson won a bronze Otto Award. Later that year, Watson became the youngest person to appear on the cover of Teen Vogue, an appearance she reprised in August 2009. In 2006, Watson played Hermione in The Queen’s Handbag, a special mini-episode of Harry Potter in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 80th birthday.

Watson signing autographs for fans outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, 2007

The fifth film in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was released in 2007. A huge financial success, the film set a record worldwide opening-weekend gross of 2.7 million. Watson won the inaugural National Movie Award for Best Female Performance. As the fame of the actress and the series continued, Watson and fellow Harry Potter co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint left imprints of their hands, feet and wands in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on 9 July 2007.

Despite the success of Order of the Phoenix, the future of the Harry Potter franchise became surrounded in doubt, as all three lead actors were hesitant to sign on to continue their roles for the final two episodes. Radcliffe eventually signed for the final films on 2 March 2007, but Watson was considerably more hesitant. She explained that the decision was significant, as the films represented a further four-year commitment to the role, but eventually conceded that she “could never let [the role of] Hermione go”, signing for the role on 23 March 2007. In return for committing to the final films, Watson’s pay was doubled to 2 million per film; she concluded that “in the end, the pluses outweighed the minuses”. Principal photography for the sixth film began in late 2007, with Watson’s part being filmed from 18 December to 17 May 2008.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince premiered on 15 July 2009, having been controversially delayed from November 2008. With the lead actors now in their late teens, critics were increasingly willing to review them on the same level as the rest of the film’s all-star cast, which the Los Angeles Times described as “a comprehensive guide to contemporary UK acting”. The Washington Post felt Watson to have given “[her] most charming performance to date”, while The Daily Telegraph described the lead actors as “newly-liberated and energized, eager to give all they have to what left of the series”.

Watson’s filming for the final installment of the Harry Potter film series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, began on 18 February 2009. The film, divided into two parts filmed back to back for financial and scripting reasons, is scheduled for release in November 2010 and July 2011.

Other acting work

Watson’s first non-Potter role was the 2007 BBC film Ballet Shoes, an adaptation of the novel of the same title by Noel Streatfeild. The film’s director Sandra Goldbacher commented that Watson was “perfect” for the starring role of aspiring actress Pauline Fossil: “She has a piercing, delicate aura that makes you want to gaze and gaze at her.” Ballet Shoes was broadcast in the UK on Boxing Day 2007 to an audience of 5.7 million viewers, despite generally poor reviews.

Watson also lent her voice to the role of Princess Pea in the animated film The Tale of Despereaux, a children’s comedy starring Matthew Broderick. The Tale of Despereaux was released in December 2008 and grossed million worldwide.

In April 2008, Watson was widely rumoured to have been cast as “Betsy” Bonaparte in an upcoming film titled Napoleon and Betsy, but her official website denied that any commitment had been made and the film failed to materialize. Watson has chosen to focus on her education rather than pursuing other film or television roles.

Fashion and modelling

As she has grown older, Watson has become something of a fashion devotee, saying that she sees fashion as very similar to art, which she studied in school. In September 2008, she told a blogger, “I’ve been focusing on art a lot, and fashion’s a great extension of that.”

In 2008, the British press reported that Watson was to replace Keira Knightley as the face of the fashion house Chanel, but this was flatly denied by both parties. In June 2009, following several months of rumours, Watson confirmed that she would be partnering Burberry as the face of their new campaign; she received an estimated six-figure fee for modelling Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2009 collection. She later appeared in Burberry’s 2010 Spring/Summer campaign alongside her brother Alex, musicians George Craig and Matt Gilmour, and Max Hurd.

In September 2009, Watson announced her involvement with People Tree, a Fair Trade fashion brand. Watson says she has been working closely with People Tree to create a spring line of clothing, due to be released at the end of February 2010. The line will feature styles inspired by southern France and the City of London. Later, The Times released a short article on Watson’s progress with the collection. The range was highly publicized, appearing in subsequent tabloids such as You magazine, Heat Magazine, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and People. Watson admitted that her competition was minimal. She also stated, “I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.”

Personal life

Watson’s extended family has grown as her divorced parents each have new partners. Her father has a son, Toby, and identical twin girls, Nina and Lucy. Her mother’s partner has two sons (Watson’s stepbrothers), who “regularly stay with her”. Watson’s full brother, Alexander, has appeared as an extra in two Harry Potter films, and her half-sisters were cast as the young Pauline Fossil in the BBC’s Ballet Shoes adaptation.

After moving to Oxford with her mother and brother, Watson attended The Dragon School, an independent preparatory school, until June 2003 and then moved to Headington School, an independent school for girls, also in Oxford. While on film sets, Watson and her peers were tutored for up to five hours a day; despite the focus on filming she maintained high academic standards. In June 2006, Watson took GCSE examinations in 10 subjects, achieving eight A* and two A grades; she was a target of friendly ridicule on the Harry Potter set because of her straight-A exam results. She received A grades in her 2008 A level examinations in English Literature, Geography and Art, and in her 2007 AS (advanced subsidiary) level in History of Art.

After leaving school, Watson took a gap year to film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows beginning in February 2009, but said she “definitely want[ed] to go to university”. Despite numerous contradictory news stories, some from highly-reputable sources, claiming that she would “definitely” attend Trinity College, Cambridge, Columbia University, Brown University or Yale University, Watson was reluctant to commit publicly to any one institution, saying that she would announce her decision first on her official website. In interviews with Jonathan Ross and David Letterman in July 2009, she confirmed that she was planning to study liberal arts in the United States, saying that having missed so much school as a child for filming the “broad curriculum” of American higher education appealed to her more than British universities, “where you have to just choose one thing to study for three years”. In July 2009, after a second storm of rumour, The Providence Journal reported that Watson had “grudgingly admitted” that she had chosen Brown University, located in Providence, Rhode Island. Watson defended her attempts to avoid announcing her choice of university accidentally slipped by Daniel Radcliffe and producer David Heyman, during interviews publicising the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and finally confirmed in September 2009 after the university’s academic year had started saying that she “want[ed] to be normal. … I want to do it properly, like everyone else. As long as I don walk in and see … Harry Potter posters everywhere, Il be fine.”

Watson’s work in the Harry Potter series has earned her more than 10 million, and she has acknowledged she will never have to work for money  in March 2009 she was ranked 6th on the Forbes list of “Most Valuable Young Stars” and in February 2010 was named as Hollywood’s highest paid female star, having earned an estimated 19 million in 2009. However, she has declined to leave school to become a full-time actress, saying “People can understand why I don want to … but school life keeps me in touch with my friends. It keeps me in touch with reality.” She has been positive about working as a child actress, saying her parents and colleagues helped make her experience a positive one. Watson enjoys a close friendship with her fellow Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, describing them as a “unique support system” for the stresses of film work, and saying that, after working with them for the ten years of the film series, “they really are like my siblings”.


Watson lists her interests as dancing, singing, field hockey, tennis, art and fly fishing, and she donates to WTT (Wild Trout Trust). She describes herself as “a bit of a feminist”, and admires fellow actors Johnny Depp and Julia Roberts.

The Plot Of Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince

Article by Allan Michael Taylor

The success of any movie is totally dependent on the plot or scheme of that movie. It is not necessary that only reality based movies are successful, but most of the times unrealistic or made-up movies seem to be grasping the audience’s attention much more than practical movies.

Nevertheless, it would only come about if the story and plot would be perfectly written, and managed. It is the case with the imminent new movie of the world’s most popular imaginary series of Harry Potter saga called Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, which has now become the most likely and highly anticipated movie.

It would be in the theatres and cinemas all around the world in this month of July. J.K Rowling has brought remarkable climaxes and twists in this sixth part of the series. The story has been written flawlessly and perfectly. The account commences with the meeting of Minister of Magic with the Minister of Muggles (humans) telling and warning him about the powerful position and spiteful position of Lord Voldemort.

The story takes a suspense-filled culmination when Severus Snape, whom Dumbledore trusts blindly, meets Narcissa and Bellatrix (mother and aunt of Draco Malfoy) and guarantees them that he will assist Draco in whatever task he is up to, on the orders of Voldemort. Dumbledore takes Harry from his Muggle aunt and uncle’s house to have a meeting with old Professor Slughorn, who after meeting Harry consents to instruct in Hogwarts.

At the very start of Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts, he gets the first sheer shock, when Dumbledore proclaims that professor Severus Snape is going to teach Defence Against the Dark Arts. This offends Harry a lot, as he has always detested Snape. Professor Slughorn becomes the lecturer of potions and gives Harry an old copy of Potion creation.

Harry uses the correct spells and methods written on it and becomes the most shining student of the class. The book has been the possession of Half Blood Prince but Harry does not have the slightest idea about the Half Blood Prince. Sixth year has also brought lovely changes in Harry’s life such as his romance with Ginny Weasley and the captaincy of Gryffindor Quidditch team.

Harry also has distrust on Malfoy that he is doing something clandestinely, but could not guess the task. Harry has his underground meetings with Dumbledore in which he shows Harry the memories of different people relating to Voldemort. Then Harry receives another big shock when he gets to know that Voldemort has split his soul into seven parts called Horcruxes and he has to destroy them in order to finish Voldemort. On the mission of destroying a Horcrux in a cave, Dumbledore is badly hurt and on returning Hogwarts, they get to know that Death Eaters have come in the school.

Malfoy’s duty was to give them an entry in Hogwarts. Then the most unforeseen thing of the whole series happen and Snape in front of Harry and Death Eaters kills Dumbledore and sneaks away telling Harry that he is the Half Blood Prince. Harry is now left alone on the precarious mission of finding Horcruxes and destroying Voldemort. So, watch this action packed suspense filled, mysterious and full of thrill movie of the Harry Potter saga.

The release date for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is 15th July 2009.
