This weekend, while the Ohio State Buckeyes took a halftime break from their utter annihilation of Penn State, the school's marching band decided to pitch in with their own brand of day-ownage as well and performed one helluva movie-themed routine.
Dubbed the "Hollywood Blockbuster" halftime show, these OSU marchers pulled out all the stops to give a little homage to their favorite film franchises, and what's really interesting is that all of their choices are pretty relevant to today's market as well. Get More »
Ready to do some serious hand-flailing? 'Cause you're definitely about to.
So, everyone knows that when it comes to the box office, J.K. Rowling and her "Harry Potter" book-to-screen phenomenon proved to be pure freakin' magic. And while Warner Bros. tried to move on after the "Deathly Hallows" two-parter and make southern gothic witchcraft a viable thing by way of "Beautiful Creatures," the studio is nowhere near ready to give up on the series that apparated (that's Hogwarts speak for summoned in) so many piles of cash for it even Gringott's would need to tighten up security to bank it.
Generous though our magic queen is, she's now signed on to write — that's her actual hand to paper, 'cause that's how she rolls — the screenplays for a new film series about the "Harry Potter" world. Get More »
Even Lord Voldemort would cringe at this story.
But we can all relate, right? You know, that thing where you're a big fan of something, so you join a web forum to chat with other fans, then you get the webmaster's face tattooed on your thigh, then you write a bondage themed short story about you and the webmaster, then the webmaster bans you, then you threaten her life multiple times, then the FBI issues a warrant for your arrest...
Alleged New Zealand cyber-stalker Jessica Elizabeth Parker had better cancel any plans to visit America.
The FBI has issued a warrant for the "Harry Potter" super-fan from Down Under thanks to a series of extraordinarily creepy death threats. Parker went all interwebs crazy after The Leaky Cauldron "webmistress" Melissa Anelli banned her due to her (alleged) creepiness. According to The New Zealand Herald (thank you Uproxx for writing about this), 28 year-old Parker has a large portrait of Anelli covering her thigh.
"This is not over until someone is on the floor bleeding their life away," Parker emailed Anelli, who is the author of the 2008 page-turner "Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon." The Brooklyn-based Anelli is also co-host of the PotterCast podcast (guess what that podcast is about?).
At some point, Parker reportedly wrote some dominatrix-centric fantasy about her and Anelli.
After the flamewar and forum ban took place, Parker started leaving nutty voicemails, sending bat---- emails and even got her creepy snail mail on. She had all kinds of sweet things to say, like, "I will not sit by as you attempt to crush what little I have left, I would rather slit your damn throat and be done with it" and "I'm warning you right now, you will die!" You know, things friends and fellow fans write to each other. Get More »
Muggles, unite! The magic of the internet (way more sleek than a wand, if you ask us) has made it possible for us to explore wizarding London without actually leaving our desks.
Now, make your way to Diagon Alley and enter J.K. Rowling's magical world of witchcraft and wizardry — all using the power of your handy dandy MacBook. Thanks to Google Maps' Street View, we mere muggles (and those of us who can't afford the airfare/Floo powder to London) now get a chance to navigate through Ollivanders Wand Shop, Mr. Mulpepper's Apothecary, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, and more.

With two movies in theaters this week and many more in production, Emma Watson is a busy girl. But it's only about to get busier for the 23-year-old actress, who is returning to her "Harry Potter" roots with another fantasy franchise. Get More »
Vine is to YouTube what flash fiction is to the short story, and the increasingly popular little video app is gaining a lotta traction in the movie biz right about now because, well, there's a ton of hilarity potential.
Sure, one could make a series of hoity-toity Tribeca Film Festival-worthy six-second shorts with the program, too (yawn), but who wouldn't rather see things like rap song/ Disney movie mashups and random celebrity impersonation samples and brief homemade movie reboots? Get More »
