Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Deathly Hallows Halfway Point Revealed Print E-mail

Spoilers ahead folks. In case you couldn't guess from the headline.

The point at which Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be divided into two has been discovered. Fans were both angry and excited by Warner Bros' decision to release the Potter finale in two parts. After the spectacular Harry Potter trailer hit them in the face, they settled firmly on the excited side of the fence. Now, they'll either get angry or excited once more when they find out where exactly Deathly Hallows' split point is.

Chapter 24. That's the official halfway point, according to Entertainment Weekly's report. In J.K Rowling's book, that's the moment just after Dobby dies and Ollivander gives some decent plot exposition, namely that Voldemort knows about the Elder Wand - which he promptly nicks from Dumbledore's tomb.

It's a good point to split it, if a little unsurprising: there's a moving farewell scene where Harry buries Dobby, plus the grave-robbing cliffhanger to tease desperate Potter fans. A lot of them still accuse Warner Bros of doing the double take "purely for financial reasons".

Alan Horn, Warner Bros President, is having none of it: "The key word there is purely... There's no question that Warner Bros will make more money with two films than they would have with one. But we also never ever would have done this if [J.K Rowling] had not endorsed it, and if we didn't feel that we were providing a better finale, with a more full sense of closure."

The key word there is "fuller", Alan. "Fuller". Grammar fail.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is out in 98 days time.
