Daniel Radcliffe's birthday is this week, but we didn't need a reason to celebrate him. The star may have eclipsed his famous childhood role with bold career choices, but he'll still always be the boy wizard to us. Since Harry Potter is a lifestyle and not just a series of books or movies, we're celebrating Radcliffe's birthday with the best Harry Potter movie quotes - and we've given you examples of how to use them in your everyday, muggle life. »
The Harry Potter movie franchise has been over for the past few years, with 2011's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 bringing the beloved series to a close. Fans will get to see a new extension of this wizarding world with next year's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but it won't include any adventures of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, since this story takes place 70 years before they even arrived at Hogwarts. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will start a whole new trilogy, but one filmmaker in particular would like to direct another movie featuring this magical trio. Chris Columbus, who directed the first two Harry Potter movies, revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he would love to direct a new Harry Potter movie that takes place after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.

Trainwreck is all about star Amy Schumer, but it's easy to get sidetracked by the seemingly endless parade of cameos in the movie. Basketball legend LeBron James has a substantial role, Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei star in a movie inside the movie, Matthew Broderick appears, and even WWE star John Cena is in there. It's a random assortment - and then there are the comedians. Tons of Saturday Night Live players turn up, including some you might miss if you're not paying attention. Here are 13 comedians - besides Amy Schumer - who star in the film. »
If you're casting a third Sharknado movie and you want some hot young talent with a big following, then Jedward are the perfect choice.
The Irish singing duo not only appear in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, but they've also recorded the film's official hip-hop-inspired single. Digital Spy caught up with the twins to speak about working with Tara Reid and pitching a fourth movie starring Daniel Radcliffe.
Ian Ziering wants Sharknado 4 on the big screen with Arnie
Edward said: "It's so good that we collaborated, we think it makes sense, because me and John, we surprised everyone's expectations, we're still here rocking it. Sharknado - no-one thought it was going be such a big deal."
John also confirmed plans to record another shark-related song, saying: "We've already started working on a song for a possible fourth movie. »
Speaking about the 54-year-old actress's character, make-up artist Kyra Panchenko explained to Entertainment Weekly: "She's over the top, over-tanned, and does everything in the biggest way.
"Tilda kept saying in her cute accent, 'I'm a hot mess'."
Swinton was given full creative control over her pushy character's style and look, and eventually based it on former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld.
"We had a little bit of Carine happening in a very respectful way," Panchenko added.
Comedian Schumer - who makes her first starring role in a major movie with Trainwreck - stars as a commitment-phobic career woman, »
Many happy returns to Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrates his 26th birthday today (July 23)! He may have made a name for himself as heroic wizard Harry Potter, but in the years since Deathly Hallows - Part 2, he's excelled in indie roles and displayed something of a flair for comedy.
To mark Daniel's big day, we look at nine times he's managed to tickle our funny bone...
1. Don't give up the day job, Daniel!
"I'm not Lauren, I'm like a cut-price much less efficient version of Lauren." Daniel gave the staff of Nylon magazine something of a surprise when he took on an emergency shift behind the front desk. The whole thing was filmed, with a bewildered Daniel struggling with deliveries, pick-ups and what to do with Joe Jonas. Bring back Lauren!
2. Rapping 'Alphabet Aerobics' by Blackalicious
Who'd have thought Daniel was a big rap fan? During an appearance on The Tonight Show »
We all know and love Daniel Radcliffe for his star-making role as Harry Potter, but there is a lot more to the British actor than waving wands and practicing magic. Daniel turns 26 on Thursday, and he's not only full of talent - he can act, sing, and dance, all of which he's done on Broadway several times - but he's also just one seriously cool dude. Keep reading for fun reasons to celebrate the man behind the magic. »
I learned something with today's ratings bulletin beyond the actual ratings for a trio of upcoming films. I learned Amber Heard and Johnny Depp got married, and not necessarily all that recently... back in February. On top of that, she is apparently going by Amber Heard Depp now, or at least that's how IMDb is referring to her. Yeah, pretty exciting stuff. I found this out because Heard stars in Pamela Romanowsky's upcoming film The Adderall Diaries (as Amber Heard) alongside a large list of names including James Franco, Christian Slater, Wilmer Valderrama, Ed Harris, Jim Parrack, Cynthia Nixon and Timothee Chalamet. The pic played the Tribeca Film Festival and will be released by A24 later this year, but no official date has yet been set. Next we have a PG-13 rating for a couple of upcoming 20th Century Fox features, first off there's Fantastic Four and its "sci-fi »

Another San Diego Comic-Con International has come and gone. This year was a great year for films, friends, and fun! Check out my Top 10 cinematic moments from this years con. Also, be sure to share your favorite moments from this year. I’d love to hear from you! Now, let’s get started!
Let me start off by saying that I have not been looking forward to this film. I’m not stoked on the new batsuit, and disagree with their casting of Lex Luthor, simply because I feel as though the character should be older. Having said that, this is the best trailer that I have seem thus far, and I really hope that they prove me wrong. Check out the all new trailer that debuted in Hall H and let me know what you think!

Chicago – In one of the most anticipated comedies of the summer, Amy Schumer breaks out of her edgy role as a stand-up and sketch artist to put her spin on the film universe in “Trainwreck.” She plays the lead role, is directed by the comic-reputable Judd Apatow, and she wrote the script. Why is it so “meh”?
It has funny parts, and laugh-out-loud moments, but it also has loads of dead air, cardboard characters, an inability to find an ending and worst of all, redemption. The character is a unrepentant drinker, pot smoker and promiscuous New Yorker, but the story has to give her a rehabilitation and throw in a family subplot that sinks like a stone. There is so much potential here, but most of it is lost in the need to “moralize” the Amy Schumer image. All of her edge is dulled to butter knife qualities, even »

Daniel Radcliffe is keeping one foot in the rap game. The star of the “Harry Potter” franchise was caught on video at a karaoke bar doing his own rendition of Eminem’s 2000 megahit song “The Real Slim Shady.” The actor was joined onstage by his girlfriend, who dances along while Radcliffe drops the rhymes. This is not the first time Radcliffe has shown off his hip-hop habit, however. See video: Daniel Radcliffe Makes a Terrible Receptionist for Nylon Magazine Radcliffe appeared on “The Tonight Show” back in October and performed a flawless rendition of Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics.” Does this mean a “Harry Potter” rap album. »

Daniel Radcliffe's accent was on point as he showed off his rapping skills with an Eminem number during karaoke night at Cameron's Pub in Half Moon Bay, Calif. (If you closed your eyes, you'd never think this was a British dude.) Up on the tiny stage, Daniel and girlfriend Erin Darke get into the zone real quick once the beat drops. Erin immediately gets into some impressive hip thrusts as boyfriend Daniel cues up. Although we've heard "Slim Shady" 9 bazillion times, something about watching Harry Potter rap a bunch of s--t about celebrities makes it seem like a brand-new song: "Will Smith don't gotta cuss in his raps to sell records/ Well I do, so f--k him and f--k you »

We have plenty of movie coverage here at HitFix — including Drew's rave review of this film from SXSW — but as happens when I see a film relatively early in its run, and particularly one like "Trainwreck" with a fair amount of crossover with what I cover in TV, I like to offer up a few of my thoughts, as well as a place for people who have seen the film to start discussing it. Again, this review is designed for people who've already seen "Trainwreck," and thus will have plenty of spoilers, coming up just as soon as we split the check... Amy Schumer is on an incredible roll right now. She just finished perhaps the strongest season to date of "Inside Amy Schumer" — and the "12 Angry Men" spoof is an early contender for 2015's best episode of television — and "Trainwreck" is a terrific movie introduction for her as both actress and writer. »
