Internet publication “Mashable” reports that the Internet got a thirty-six-minute excerpt from the new part of the “Harry Potter”.
According to the resource published, the video posted online is an excerpt of an on-screen copy made from a promo DVD. This is evidenced by the inscription on the video, which indicates the origin of the roller. At this time the video has already managed to spread on popular torrent-trackers today. So, according to Wired, representatives from Warner Bros.” stated that they intend to find and punish those responsible for leaking the video on the Internet.
Many torrent site owners said that the leak would probably not harm the film, but rather serve as some sort of publicity. Some representatives of the film industry partly agree with them, but only on the condition that the full version of this fantasy picture will not get into the network before the deadline. After all, if you think logically, after watching the first thirty-six minutes of the film, viewers probably want to see the full version and find out how it ends.
Recall that the last episode of the fantasy film series “Harry Potter” consists of two parts. The first part, entitled “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” premiered in the UK on November 11 this year. In Russia its premiere will take place on November the eighteenth. The company plans to release the second installment of “Deathly Hallows” next summer. Also worth noting that the filmmakers had refused to convert the picture to 3D. Therefore, the film will be shown in the usual format.
Currently, a series about the young wizard Harry Potter has six films, the total collection of which only in the U.S. alone amounted to more than 1.7 billion U.S. dollars, which is approximately two hundred and eighty million dollars per episode.
In conclusion, we note that the most popular was the first film called “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. Its receipts amounted to more than three hundred and seventeen million American dollars.
