Watch Tron Legacy Online

This season, one of the most awaited sci-fi movies is the sequel to the 1982 cult classic Tron and fanboys are dying to watch Tron Legacy online. This marks the return of the glowing neon lights lined everywhere, the sleeker flying laser discs, and the ultra-cool Light Cycles. But unlike the first film, Walt Disney Pictures has splurged on the upcoming film after they ballooned the budget to a reported $175 million for production cost.

In 1982, Tron was made only with $17 million and the technology to pull off such an ambitious project did not exist then. Heck, the internet was not even discovered then. With the word cyberspace just been coined when the film was released, it did not make such an impact at the box office. But it achieved cult classic status when people began the idea of the virtual reality is injected in the cultural phenomenon. Now, when you watch Tron Legacy online, expect it to be more futuristic and with way better special effects and the fight sequences grander.

Following 25 years when the first film took off, the sequel shows Kevin Flynn went on to create the world with infinite possibilities. And in 1989, he suddenly disappeared leaving his son on his own son, Sam. And after more than a decade of searching, Sam got a signal that gave him an idea where to find his father. When he went to the old Flynn’s Arcade, he was suddenly transported inside the virtual world, Tron, which his father had created. But the cyperspace he made had evolved bigger and greater that he had already lost control. And now, his alter-ego CLU 2 will do just about anything to keep them from leaving the digital universe which is filled with impressive buildings, ultra-modern vehicles, and high-tech weapons.

The film is set to hit theaters this December 17 or you can watch Tron Legacy online.

Epilogue of Harry Potter 7 to be Re-Shot

Come this December, after you were probably able to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I online, the cast and crew behind the film will be reunited. But not for a party like they did a few months ago after they thought that have already wrapped up shooting back in June. But now, Warner Bros. have called them.

The people behind the highest-grossing apparently were not satisfied with the key epilogue scene that you can see when you watch Harry Potter 7 online. They shot it at the real King’s Cross station in London. Filming it there was difficult and stress for the cast and crew because of the hustle and bustle going around the train station. But in order to live up to expectations of the fans who have been waiting anxiously for the epic finale, they decided re-shoot the important sequence. But this time they will reshooting inside the Leavesden Studio.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe told reporters, , “We are re-shooting some parts of it. It was an interesting one. I think we made it very hard on ourselves because we shot it at King’s Cross for real. And this time we’ll be shooting at Leavesden on set. To have to rush that sequence and it’s an important sequence, is not something any one of us want to do. It’s a train station and people actually needed to use that platform. We made it very hard on ourselves and we really want a slightly slower, more measured pace next time.”

Emma Watson joked about it and said, “I mean, you can imagine, we stopped trains when they said we could the scene. I mean, we are special –we are ‘Harry Potter.’ We only had two days to shoot it we needed so much more time than that. We have to re-shoot at Christmas.”

 “It’s not over. It’s not over, yet,” she concluded. You can watch Harry Potter Part I online to catch the beginning of the end.

Rupert Grint Shared Stories About the End of Harry Potter

When you watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows online, this will be the last time that you will probably see Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint together in one film. They have been around each other for about a decade, but now they have to say fare well and will go on their separate ways. Radcliffe is set to do several movies and will return to Broadway as well. Watson will have a small role in an upcoming film, but after that, she will fly back to Rhode Island to continue her college in Brown University.

But Grint’s schedule is wide. But he told reporters that he is not worried about his acting career and he loves taking the time off. He was recently asked about going through an airport security without going through so much trouble with other people. He replied, “I’ve got a pretty normal life really. The only time I really feel famous is when get recognized or at premieres. But day to day, it’s quite boring.”

He then added, “There’s a lot of best kind of roles. But I’m not in a real rush at the moment I’m just enjoying a bit of freedom really. Because it’s been constant work since were 11, so it’s nice to slow down and just chill out a bit.”

They then asked the redhead actor who plays Ron Weasley when you watch Harry Potter 7 Part I online on how was it like on the last day of shooting last June. He recalled, “I didn’t really know how I was really gonna feel on the last day. It was actually really sad. We all cried and had a little moment. I think just coz it has been such a long time, half our lives, and for it to come down to just one last shot seemed like a huge deal, really. We had a barbecue and I brought my ice cream van down and served ice creams. I’m definitely gonna miss it.”

But although when you watch Harry Potter 7 online would be the last chance you will see him as the bumbling wizard and will probably do other projects, he said, “I’ll always be the ginger one from Harry Potter.”

Helena Bonham Carter on Bellatrix Lestrange

One of the most villainous characters you will see when you watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows online is Bellatrix Lestrange. The evil witch is said to be only second to Lord Voldemort as the most gifted in the Dark Arts and the most vicious among the group of supremacist witches and wizards. She is shown to have no conscience at all, showing no mercy to enemies in the name of the Dark Lord, even if it means killing her own family members. Almost everybody fears her and would not come near her.

But in an interview with Helena Bonham Carter, who plays Bellatrix when you watch Harry Potter 7 Part I online, she revealed that she enjoyed portraying the role of the mentally-unstable and violence –driven witch. The British actress said, “Well, she’s totally insane. It’s always fun playing insane. She’s kind of exhausting to play because she screams a lot, but she was fun. I miss her, actually. She’s innately a child, which is always fun to be childish. Any excuse to be childish.”

The Oscar-nominated actress also said that she likes to look at her promotional posters for the seventh entry in the two-part epic finale of the Harry Potter series, specially the one with Lucius Malfoy. She commented, “I like that one. I usually don’t like photos of me, but I like that one, because there is lots of atmospheric lighting.” She then added, “And also, I like my teeth. I had fake teeth. It’s a beauty tip: use fake teeth. The [teeth] plumped my upper lip, which makes you look younger. It’s like having collagen without having collagen because it makes the lip look fuller. Always get false teeth.”

If you watch Harry Potter 7 online, the talented British actress will also channel her inner Hermione Granger on the screen. She recalled, “Rather than put Emma Watson in a helluva load of make-up, they just said, ‘Now you go act like Hermione.’ That was fun, because I always wanted to be Hermione… looking Dan and Rupert, and they were treating me as if I was 17.”

Harry Potter to Have Been Animated by Spielberg?

You have to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows online as this is the epic finale to the highest grossing film series of all time. But more than years ago, when Warner Bros. tried to circle around the big screen adaptation of the relatively-known books by J. K. Rowling to other studios, they all closed their doors on them. The Harry Potter series was discovered in the shelves by producer David Heyman. He loved the book and then took them to Warner Bros. The studio then bought the rights to the first four books for about $2 million eventhough there was only one book that has been published yet. They then circled it to other studios to help them finance the project. And one of them was DreamWorks by Steven Spielberg.

But when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in cinemas, it was such a huge blockbuster and is now the seventh highest-earning movie of all time after grossing more than $970 million worldwide. The other studios then backtracked on their decision and wanted to be part of the hit film series. But Warner Bros. president Alan Horn declined on their offers. But in an interview with Horn, he revealed that on their talks with Spielberg, there was one intriguing idea that has plagued him for years. The prolific filmmaker wanted the movie franchise to be animated! Imagine, watch Harry Potter 7 online in complete animation?!

Horn told the LA Times, “I did think it would be worthwhile for Steven Spielberg to direct. We offered it to him. But one of the notions of DreamWorks’ and Steven’s was, ‘Let’s combine a couple of the books, let’s make it animated,’ and that was because of the [the visual effects and] Pixar had demonstrated that animated movies could be extremely successful. Because of the wizardry involved, they were very effects-laden.  So I don’t blame them.  But I did not want to combine the movies, and I wanted it to be live action.”

But Warner Bros. and Spielberg did not burn their bridges as the two-time Oscar-winning director went to make A.I. Artificial Intelligence with them. The studio then picked Chris Columbus to direct the first Harry Potter film. And the rest is, as they say, history. And on this November 19, you can watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I online, the first half of the epic finale.
