After her time in the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson is no stranger to dealing with magical beasts, but a love story with one is a bit different from her past experience. So, of course, the two had to be put together for the comedic effect, resulting in a slightly-too-perfect merging of Voldemort and the new Beauty and the Beast.
Tumblr user Pragmatique has created these gorgeous Harry Potter posters that envision a world where Voldemort had won, including wanted posters for our favorite teen wizards and propoganda posters for Voldemort and the Malfoys. The ladies look especially fierce in their Wanted posters - who would cross Hermione when she looks that tough?!
Continuing their proud nation's great tradition of being simultaneously wackier and sadder than all other nations, North Korean archaeologists have announced the discovery of what they claim is the lair of a unicorn. What, you may ask, could lead them to believe they had stumbled on such an incredible find? According to the country's state run news service "A rectangular rock carved with words "Unicorn Lair" stands in front of the lair." I think you'll agree -- pretty hard to argue with evidence like that.
Well, this one we didn't expect. In an attempt to show off all the glory that is their Britishness, the open ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics on Friday may just feature a pretty epic battle scene--headlining Harry Potter villain Lord Voldemort and the eponymous hero of Mary Poppins.

This trailer for Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is named "Game Face" but we see it for what it truly is - Lord Voldemort's secret desire to be more like Professor Gilderoy Lockhart. After all, Lockhart gets all the ladies, Voldemort only gets Bellatrix. God, I can't wait for this game.

We tend to avoid the MTV Movie Awards these days, for fear of being buried in a disturbing amount of Twilight fanfare and glitzy B-list celebrities. But one arguable perk to the award show is the slew of trailers and exclusive clips it tends to premiere. With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 a mere month and a half from release (!!!!!), fans everywhere are clamping on to every new trailer, poster, or cast interview they can get their hands on. And it's not for nothing; for many who grew up with Harry, the release of the final film marks the symbolic end of adolescence. But the clip Warner Bros. decided to premiere last night is not just any clip; it's a look at arguably the most important Avada Kedavra ever uttered in the series.
