How Will The 5th Wave Stack Up Against the Most Successful YA Movie Adaptations?

The Most Successful YA Novel Movie Adaptations, Ranked

Originally posted 01/22/2016 02:20PM

Even if you're not a big reader of young adult fiction, you may have seen the advertisements for the new Chloë Grace Moretz movie The 5th Wave and suspected that it looks like the kind of movie that was adapted from a YA franchise. All the elements are there: a post-apocalyptic dystopia, a winsome female protagonist who stands up to become the world's champion, an imperiled younger sibling and the winning combination of light science fiction and teenaged angst.

J.K. Rowling Confesses: Hermione Should Have Ended Up with Harry

J.K. Rowling Confesses: Hermione Should Have Ended Up with Harry, Not Ron

Originally posted 02/02/2014 12:20PM

Hold on to your Sorting Hats, Potterheads: J.K. Rowling has just rocked your world.

In a new interview, the Harry Potter author, 48, admits she regrets not having Harry and indispensable friend Hermione Granger get together at the end of the series, rather than Hermione and fellow BFF Ron Weasley.

Rowling's interviewer? None other than Hermione herself, AKA Emma Watson, who played the brainy heroine in all the Potter films.

"I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment," Rowling tells Watson for the latest issue of Wonderland, a UK magazine the actress guest edited this month. (Excerpts of the interview were just published in the UK Sunday Times.) "That's how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron."

Daniel Radcliffe & Rupert Grint Are Good Friends, But 'Lazy Texters'

There's no bad blood between Harry Potter costars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.

Despite an interview that Radcliffe recently did that "was blown out of proportion," the Woman in Black star says he and Grint, 23, are "very, very good friends."

"It's just ridiculous," Radcliffe, 22, told On Air with Ryan Seacrest. "Someone said, 'Are you in contact with Rupert and Emma [Watson] at the moment?' And I said, 'Emma and I have been texting recently, but Rupert and I never text.' "

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2: PEOPLE Critic's Review

All seven previous films in the Harry Potter series faithfully executed the magical minutiae of J.K. Rowling's books. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is the first to re-create the feeling of reading them.

Grim, beautiful and unabashedly emotional, this is nearly as satisfying an end to the saga as a fan could wish for (even with some subtle deviations from the book) as Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) faces the evil Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).

On their quest to find and destroy the Dark Lord, Harry, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) take a thrilling detour through Gringotts's bank vaults (the best use of otherwise needless 3-D) before finding their way back to Hogwarts.

Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe Bid Final Farewell to Harry Potter

Saying goodbye is never easy – especially for Muggles.



As hundreds of fans cheered them on, the Harry Potter trio of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint walked the red carpet together for what may be the last time ever at the U.S. premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2 Monday night in New York City. 



"It's been the most amazing roller coaster ride," Watson, 21, donning a curve-hugging Bottega Veneta gown, told reporters. Admitting she was feeling "emotional," Watson wore some precautionary waterproof mascara. (At last week's London world premiere, she cried. Her eyes stayed dry on Monday.)

For Radcliffe, also 21, growing up on the Potter movie set "was the most fantastic thing. There are no places more fun for a 12-year-old kid to be than a film set. It's like the ultimate playground. … It's been an exciting, bizarre, wonderful 10 years."

Rupert Grint does not count himself among the massive number of males who probably want to smooch Emma Watson.

"It was actually okay," Grint, 22, said of his onscreen kiss with Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which opened in theaters Friday. "It was just the anticipation. Neither of us were looking forward to it."

Grint does, however, acknowledge that may seem a bit unbelievable to most fans.

Think of what it must be like to leave high school after 10 years: happy, yet melancholy.

That, at least, were the mixed emotions coming from Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as deduced by Entertainment Weekly earlier this summer, as the acting trio wrapped up the final two Harry Potter adventures.

"I'm ready to kind of move on now, I think," Grint, 21, is quoted as saying in the latest cover story of the magazine, on sale Friday. "This film is a great way to finish the whole era, and it's going to be sad, because obviously all my friends are here, but 10 years is enough."

Beyond Butterbeer: Harry Potter Stars Share Their Wizarding World Theme Park Favorites

Originally posted 06/18/2010 09:30AM

Call it the Great Butterbeer Debate. In all the hoopla surrounding the grand opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, one question has yet to be settled: Frozen butterbeer or regular?

"My preference is the frozen – it's slightly nicer, especially in this unbelievable heat," says Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry in the wildly popular film series. "It's very refreshing."

But the nonalcoholic butterbeer – which tastes like one part cream soda, one part butterscotch syrup and one part Nilla wafer – is just a drop of the detail-packed new park, which has its grand opening to the public today. We asked the stars of the Harry Potter films to share their own personal highlights:
