Harry Potter Premieres In Stormy London

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, the film’s cast members (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint) and thousands of Harry Potter fans braved a rainstorm to make it to the London opening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in Leicester Square Tuesday night.

The stars — most notably Radcliffe — were drenched making their way from their cars into the film house.

In related news, movie industry insiders are speculating the film’s PG rating might not boost the film’s box office as much as Warner Bros. expects: the last PG Potter film (2004’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) was the lowest-grossing domestic intake of all five. Still, from the size of the crowds gathering to greet the movie’s young stars worldwide this next installment seems poised to make its mark on the box office.
