2nd Screening Report: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Potter fever is beginning to heat up. ABC News now has their own report from the screening Warner Bros recently held in Chicago for an unfinished version of OotP. According to them, fans are "salivating" over the latest installment.
Carlos Amador, who was at the screening, gave it a thumbs up review.
"Great. Incredible. It was the best one yet," he said to ABC News. And he should know — he's seen all the others in the series and calls himself a "critical fan."
Others who saw the "research screening" — as Warner Bros. called it — agreed with Amador. Positive accounts have begun to appear online, and Potter bloggers are salivating, peppering them with questions.
I am currently re-reading Order of the Phoenix (third time) to get my facts straight - so expect a report on that shortly. Yates has a ton of material that he could use for the film, it's just too bad that he will have to abandon a good chunk thanks to the fact that plotlines were left out of Goblet of Fire.
It looks like the film is off to a good start, however, so how can I complain?
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opens
to theatres on July 13th, 2007.
