TODAY'S MOVIE NEWS ROUND-UP: Friday 8th July.
Emma Watson sheds a tear at the Potter premiere, The Hobbit dwarves are revealed and Final Destination gets a (final) new trailer.
Emma Watson joined blubbing fans yesterday as she arrived at the premiere of the eighth and final instalment in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Fans chanted the actress's names as she welled up on the red carpet, joined by co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, with whom she has been acting since she was nine-years-old.
Daniel Radcliffe, 21 - who has played Harry since he was 11 - said: "It has been the most inspirational, bizarre years of my life and probably forever.
"I'm so grateful for being an incredibly lucky 11 year old."
Hugging him, Emma said: "Dan, you didn't get lucky. You were and are the perfect Harry and will be forever."
The stars of the film joined JK Rowling - author of the Harry Potter books - on a stage in Trafalgar Square to salute the thousands of fans, many of whom had camped for days to be first in line to greet the stars.
Since an initial print run of just 1,000 copies of the first Harry Potter book back in 1997, more than 450 million copies have now been sold and been translated into 67 languages.
The subsequent films have grossed more than £4 billion at the box office and with merchandising the whole phenomenon is thought to be worth more than £10 billion.
Now the final film, Harry Potter and the The Deathly Hallows Part Two, is expected to be the biggest yet.
FIRST PICTURES OF THE HOBBIT DWARVES
The first image of Nori, Dori and Ori, The Hobbit’s trio of dwarves, has just been revealed.
Peter Jackson continued his use of the Hobbit Facebook page to showcase the latest tantalising film shot, which shows the badass dwarves bearded and hooded.
Filming is now well underway for both of the Hobbit films, the first of which - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - is scheduled for release in December 2012.
ANOTHER FINAL DESTINATION 5 TRAILER LANDS ONLINE
The last of the Final Destination 5 trailers has landed online. No really - this is the last one. Or is it? The latest movie about teens pursued by Death after escaping their fate revolves around a collapsing suspension bridge.
If you like dead teens, destruction and dark humour a la Darwin Awards, this is one for you. If you're squeamish about Clockwork Orange-style eye-related violence, look away now.
Final Destination 5 is due for UK release on 26 August this year.
