Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Fans of Harry Potter are surely counting the days till November 18th, when the fourth instalment of the film series is going to be released.
Harry, now 14, is feeling very uneasy due to a series of dreams he's been having regarding two men plotting murders. Despite this, he however accepts Ron's invitation to go to the Quidditch World Cup. Strange things happen during this tournament that suggest that Voldemort's followers are plotting something.
Upon returning to Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry gets to know that the school is hosting the TriWizard Tournament, a competition between Hogwarts, Beauxbatons Academy and Durmstrang Institute. Harry is chosen to participate in the tournament. Not only this, but he has to cope with a new teacher who shows far too much interest in him than what is normal.
The film is directed by Mike Newell, who is the first British director involved in a Harry Potter movie, the previous two being American (Chris Columbus, who directed The Philosopher's Stone and The Chamber of Secrets) and Mexican (Alfonso Cuaron, the man behind The Prisoner of Azkaban).
Daniel Radcliffe resumes his role as Harry Potter whereas Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are back as Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley respectively. The rest of the characters are all there including Sirius Black, Dumbledore, Cho Chang, Professor Snape and the rest.
