the sixth installment


And I thought the rumor was true. It’s not. After all, it's just a rumor. A lot in the web is circulating that the young Dumbledore in the movie version of Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince would be played by Sir Ian McKellen; the famous Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Eventually, I have known that everything’s fake. This 68 year old actor clears it all a long time ago in an interview: “…‘Don’t you wish you’d played Dumbledore?’ I say no! I played Gandalf! The original. There was a question as to whether I might take over from Richard Harris but seeing as one of the last things he did publicly was say what a dreadful actor he thought I was, it would not have been appropriate for me to take over his part. It would have been unfair.” Okay, that seems fair enough.

Well, I still love Michael Gambon as the quirky and sometimes serious Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore in the last three Potter films no matter what people say. Anyway, the
latest trailer of the movie has finally been released (uhmm, days ago?). And I love it. Yeah, yeah… I know the issues of movie adaptations but, honestly, the sixth installment looks promising. The cave scene is really cool.

Yeah... I just hope this will be better than the last. I still consider the 3rd HP movie the best.

Yeah... They're moving it on July next year. And because of this, Meyer's teenage vampire drama Twilight hopped in and took the vacant spot.
