The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Official Trailer

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Official Trailer 

The Hunger Games films have been ‘pretty good’. I wouldn’t say ‘Harry Potter Good’, but I’ve enjoyed them enough that I’m going to be amongst the first queuing outside the cinema to see the final part in the series.

Bloomsbury Reveal First ‘Harry’ image for upcoming Harry Potter Illustrated Edition Re-Releases… 

Bloomsbury Books have revealed the first picture of their ‘new’ Harry Potter. Unlike some of the other images they’ve released that will feature in the upcoming Illustrated Editions of the Harry Potter books, this image by Jim Kay can’t be called a complete reimagining.
