Hardcore Harry Potter fans have a chance to tour the locations of the Harry Potter movies this summer in a super-exclusive boat tour that sounds like a dream for anyone who wants to see where the films were shot in England.
The Harry Potter river cruise, a unofficial seven-night experience aboard an eight-person barge, will be weaving its way along the Thames River in England this summer, stopping at various iconic scenes from the Harry Potter film series and taking passengers on a behind-the-scenes tour of Warner Bros. Studios, Cruise Critic reported Wednesday.
Along the way, the cruise aboard the Magna Carta will stop at Picket Post Close (the location of 4 Privet Drive), Christ Church College at Oxford University (Hogwarts’s Great Hall), and Virginia Water (where Harry met Buckbeak the hippogriff) where passengers can tour the iconic landmarks. The cruise also stops at other famous locations around England including Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle.
All of the tours are covered by the cost of the trip — starting at a whopping $5,350 — along with meals, wine, an afternoon tea experience, and an open bar. The cabins are outfitted with some impressive wooden and leather furniture you can check out on the website.
The exclusive Harry Potter cruise takes only two trips in the summer, one starting on Aug. 5 and the other on Aug. 19. Alternatively, you can charter the boat yourself if you have the money for it.
Peter Dinklage gets yet another Emmy for his role as Tyrion Lannister
Peter Dinklage wins yet another Emmy for his role in ‘Game of Thrones.’
Peter Dinklage won his third Emmy for most outstanding supporting actor in a drama series at the Emmys on Monday.
Dinklage, who plays the iconic Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones, was nominated alongside fellow Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays his brother Jaime Lannister.
For his work as Tyrion, Dinklage has been nominated in the category seven times, winning in 2011, 2015, and now 2018.
In his acceptance speech, Dinklage thanked Coster-Waldau, who earned his first Emmy nomination for his work on Game of Thrones this year.
Hopefully both actors survive the final season of Game of Thrones coming in 2019, or at least get one more nomination next year if they do meet their demise.
‘Green Book’ Wins Toronto Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award
Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book” has won the Grolsch People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF announced at an awards ceremony on Sunday.
The film, which tells the true story of an Italian-American nightclub bouncer (Viggo Mortensen) who serves as the chauffeur for a black pianist (Mahershala Ali) on a tour through the Deep South in the early 1960s, opened at the festival on Tuesday and was an instant hit with audiences and critics, although Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” had been considered the likely winner of the People’s Choice Award.
Runners-up for the award were Barry Jenkins’ lyrical James Baldwin adaptation “If Beale Street Could Talk” and Alfonso Cuaron’s moving memory piece “Roma.”
In the past, Toronto audience members voted by depositing their ticket stubs in a box at the theater, or by using the TIFF app — festival organizers took into account the size of the theaters in which each film screened — with the films that received votes from the largest percentage of their audience winning the prizes…………………”

Henry Cavill Out As Superman!
“It’s not Kryptonite that will end Henry Cavill’s run as Warner Bros.’ grimdark Superman; it’s a studio pivot.
Cavill is reportedly finished as the Man of Steel, with unnamed studio insiders telling The Hollywood Reporter that he won’t be donning the signature DC Comics superhero’s cape and tights again. It’s said to be part of a larger move aimed at fixing WB’s flagging DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
The rumored exit apparently started with a much smaller disagreement: The studio wanted Cavill for a cameo in the upcoming Shazam!, out April 5, 2019. But talks between WB and the actor’s reps didn’t go anywhere.
Beyond that, the studio also understands that bigger changes are needed. To date, the only universally successful DC-pegged release was 2017’s Wonder Woman, which landed both with critics and at the box office.
As one insider said, “There’s a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn’t work.” (LOL at that understatement.) So now, WB is trying to hit “reset” (per another source) on the whole endeavor.
That reset reportedly includes a shift in focus from Superman to Supergirl. That movie would serve as an origin story, starring a teenage hero………………….”
