Fear the Walking Dead Has a Very Important Harry Potter Actor in It

23 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Not only is Fear the Walking Dead the spinoff TV series to watch (we're already calling it by its cool nickname), there is an actor on it who you may recognize - and get goosebumps over. Frank Dillane plays Nick, the son of Kim Dickens's character, but his previous noteworthy role was in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - as Voldemort. That's right, in 2009, Dillane played 16-year-old Tom Riddle, aka He Who Must Not Be Named, in a flashback. British actor Dillane is now 24 and heading into another huge genre franchise, though this time he'll be facing down zombies rather than Boys Who Live (fun fact: he's also the real-life son of actor Stephen Dillane, aka Stannis Baratheon on Game of Thrones). Let's just go over this, slowly. »

As Jk Rowling turns 50, here's Harry Potter's 8 movie adventures ranked from worst to best

31 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jk Rowling has been winning at life so consistently lately that her 50th birthday - which is today, July 31 (a birthday she shares with Harry himself) - feels like even more of a cause for celebration than it already would. To mark the conclusion of Rowling's fifth decade, Digital Spy is taking on the challenge of ranking the Harry Potter movies in order from worst to best.

How will Christopher Columbus stack up against Mike Newell? Will Alfonso Cuarón's much-praised single instalment outrank David Yates's four later Potter movies? Read on to find out...

Additional writing by Simon Reynolds

8. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)

Lacking the 'brand new franchise' sheen and the sheer sense of wonder that Philosopher's Stone had, Christopher Columbus's second outing was always going to come up slightly short. But his sentimental approach really rubs up awkwardly against Chamber's sinister central mystery, »

Film Review: ‘Monster Hunt’

28 July 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Monster Hunt,” the protagonists are greenish ogres with mushy hearts — not surprisingly, since this jolly live-action/animated Chinese period fantasy is helmed by Raman Hui, the Hong Kong-born animation supervisor who was involved with the genesis of the “Shrek” franchise. Although this yarn about a humans-vs.-monsters struggle to capture a monster princeling will seem too gooey and elementary for fans of more brain-teasing family fare like “Inside Out,” its technical wizardry and zippy, Hollywood-influenced storytelling smarts dwarf any brand of tyke-skewing entertainment China has ever come up with. Small wonder that domestic B.O. has been monstrous: To date, it’s earned more than $217 million, making it the biggest Chinese hit ever.

One of the most costly undertakings by Hong Kong’s Edko Films (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” “Lust, Caution”), the production hit a major snag last year when Taiwanese male lead Kai Ko (“You Are the Apple of My Eye, »

This Hot Guy From Harry Potter Has Gotten Even Hotter

15 July 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If you're a Harry Potter fan, chances are you remember doing a double take when Cormac McLaggen showed up in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The role belonged to sexy British actor Freddie Stroma, who's now 28 years old and, well, even more good-looking. Fans may also recognize Freddie (and his abs) from Pitch Perfect, and most recently, he's been on the small screen playing Adam Cromwell in UnREAL. Freddie's more than just a handsome face, though. In 2009, he earned a neuroscience degree from the University College London after studying at Radley College, a boys' boarding school in Oxfordshire, England. Meanwhile, he's also a romantic, once telling People, "I like to think that I'm a romantic type of person, but I'm a realistic romantic. For me it's the sweet gestures like the little things in life that I can do when I am with someone." He explained, "It's just about »

“Ultimately, it’s a family drama,” showrunner Dave Erickson tells EW. “One of the things that Robert Kirkman and I discussed from the very beginning was, we’re starting a little earlier in the apocalypse. And what that allowed us to do in the pilot and season 1 is establish our core family, establish the problems and the conflicts that they have, and really let that be the initial world that we live in. And we layer in the onset of the apocalypse, we layer in our first walkers, but it’s really an effort to exacerbate the »
