Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Synopsis

The fourth film in this series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire follows Harry and his friends at yet another year of Hogwart's School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Spicing things up is the Triwizard Tournament, in which students from various wizarding schools compete in magic themed, increasingly difficult challenges.

Directed this time out by Mike Newell, the fourth Harry Potter film finds the kids well, getting older. The film’s first teaser trailer seems quite content to focus on that, a move which I can’t really fault since watching these characters quite literally grow up on screen is one of the best things about the rather uneven Harry Potter franchise.

But of course there’s more to the story than that, and this time the gang gets involved in a sort of Wizard tournament, which those who have read the book probably know way too much about. I have not read, so instead I’ll talk a little about Potter’s new director Mike Newell, who takes the franchise reigns from Alfonso Cuaron. Cuaron turned in the best Potter film to date, can Newell compete? As long as they don’t bring back Columbus, I think the movie has a chance. However, Newell’s past work includes a lot of rather overrated movies like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Mona Lisa Smile, and Pushing Tin. He also spent some time on Lucas’s “Young Indiana Jones”, which tells you that despite his rom-com resume the man probably knows a little something about how to handle heavy special effects.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire arrives this fall with all the original cast (at least the ones that are breathing) still in tact. In the end, I think that matters a lot more than who directs it.
