HAPPY BIRTHDAY J.K. and HARRY!

Yes, I know it isn't technically the 31st yet; however, as it is in the UK, I'm going ahead with my shout-out anyway!
Happy 45th Birthday to J.K. Rowling, without whom, the Harry Potter universe that includes Bellatrix Lestrange (which includes Helena Bonham Carter, courtesy of the film industry) would not exist!
Also nonexistent without Jo would be one Harry James Potter, who turns 30 today!
Once again, Happy Birthday! The world was made a better place with the birth of both Jo and Harry!
Please leave your birthday wishes in the comments!

Deathly Hallows Footage Description

Geeks of Doom attended the Warner Bros. panel yesterday at Comic-Con, and on that panel was Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) who introduced a clip of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. On their site they posted a description of the footage:
"The footage opens on Harry and also Voldemort. Voldemort is saying something to Harry about how his friends have hidden him and put themselves in danger because Harry won’t come out of hiding and face Voldemort.
We hear Voldemort talking to Harry while getting clips from the film.
[I think he says: “You have allowed your friends to hide your existence from me instead confronting your fate.”}
Voldemort threatens Harry: “If you will not give yourself up, I shall punish every last man, woman, and child who tries to conceal you form me.”
Then we see quick clips of battles and people being hurt.
Finally, we see Harry come to face Voldemort, who says “The boy who lived come to die,” and starts to say the “avada kedavra” curse on Harry.
There’s also some footage we’ve seen from the trailer, like Hermione holding up her wand in one hand with her own hand bloodied (in the trailer, the blood was taken out).
We see the group of Harry Potter doubles that are used as decoys.
There’s the sky battle sequence with Hagrid on the flying motorcycle with side car.
Bill Nighy’s as Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour says “Our world has faced no greater threat than it has today but your Ministry is strong.”
Snape is sitting with Voldemort and the Dark Lord’s followers. He’s telling Voldemort that Harry Potter is being taken to a safehouse to be hidden and that it wouldn’t be wise to try and get him there.
Hermione, Ron, and Harry in hiding in the wood, listening to the radio for news. There’s a message about what’s happening, how their world is under attack by the Dark forces.
Ron yells to Harry about how he listens to the radio every day to hear if Ginnie or his other family members are being named among the killed. Harry angrily responds: “You don’t think I listen too?” Ron yells to Harry that he doesn’t understand what it’s like to be worried like this because Harry has no family, which incites Harry to attack Ron. Hermione tries to get them to stop.
The last scene is Harry and Voldemort with their wands locked, with Voldemort’s voiceover: 'Only I can live forever.'"
They also say the footage was really dark and very very good. Hopefully I'll stumble upon the clip soon (it doesn't seem to have been posted on the internet yet... has anyone come across it? you should post the link in the comments) so I can pass it on to you all :)

Angelina Jolie Wants to Work With Tim Burton

In an interview with MTV, actress Angelina Jolia said to playing Maleficent: "I would love to. It’s all new and being discussed, but I loved her when I was a little girl. She was my favorite. Tim Burton, the chance to work with him would be extraordinary."
But of course there's been little confirmation that Tim Burton actuall is making this film anytime soon, or that he'll be working with Jolie.
