Despite the wind and rain, hundreds of screaming fans flocked to Leicester Square in central London today to catch a glimpse of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, for today was the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
Fans with Harry Potter tattoos and folks from around the globe traveled to the premiere, the fist half of the final story in the Potter canon.
The film hopes to break the $1 billion in global ticket sales, but since the studio passed on a 3-D version, some say that it’ll be a bit trickier to reach that goal.
“I think the 3-D issue must be a big disappointment for Warner Brothers,” said Andreas Wiseman of Screen International.
“I think they’ve really missed a trick. Other big franchises like Saw, Shrek and Toy Story have gone from strength to strength (by turning to 3-D).”
However, it doesn’t rule out the possibility that Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 could be in 3-D when it hits screens next July!
