We've got our full video interviews from the HP 7 junket still on the way, but for a little preview of what's to come, here's a snippet of our interview with HP director David Yates. In the new Potter flick - the most suspenseful and darkest by far – there's a torture scene that's fairly graphic and faithful to Rowling's source material, in which Bellatrix (Helena Bonham Carter) scours "Mudblood" on Hermione's (Emma Watson) skin. Yates shared his thoughts on filming the uncomfortable scene, and speculated on an eighth book, which Rowling has declared could be in the near future…
Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, David Yates
Ooo.. a dark messed up torturing scene...
Boy! I can't wait to bring my kids to see this film!!
The whole point of the series of books is that the characters and situations grew with the readers...you can't go from book 1 - 7 in one year to appreciate them if you are a young reader. So by the time a reader visited each book, once a year, they were the same age as the characters and able to relate at a different level. I'd never take my 6 year old to see any of them but the very first.
I was just joking! Besides mostly everyone who has read the books (despite age) are going to want to see the film, and you probably can't stop the younger audiences from see it too (6-12).
An eighth book sounds like exploitation of success, but who isn't doing that these days? I'm not sure where an 8th book would go except to maybe explain what happens before the denoument in the seventh book. Sounds anticlimactic to me.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
