On the heels of her rousing #HeForShe commentary, Emma Watson's BAFTA acceptance speech delivered an entirely different animal.
When a certain costume piece succinctly defines an actor's most iconic role, they might well shy away from it as they try to be seen for a wider range. Michael J.

Harry Potter has not only spawned an essential book series and groundbreaking film franchise, but also a whole new branch of fan-fueled tourism.

With over two years between now and the arrival of the anticipated Harry Potter spinoff trilogy Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, there's still plenty of time for updates on the project.

There's more cinematic adventure from the Harry Potter universe on the way, but with more than two years between now and the arrival of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them adaptations, what's a Potter fan do to fill the time?

J.K. Rowling surprised Harry Potter fans yesterday by delivering a new piece of Potter-focused content on the official Harry Potter website. Was it enough content to constitute a movie?
