'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire' Darkest Potter Film Yet
11/7/2005 1:37 PM PT
Over the years, we watched Harry Potter get his first wand, learn his first spell and play his first game of Quidditch. Now the pubescent wizard goes up against dragons, Death Eaters and the return of You-Know-Who (not to mention pimples and his first crush) in his fourth year at Hogwarts. And we Muggles thought our teenage years were dark and confusing.
'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,' the much-anticipated fourth movie installment of J.K. Rowling's series, will undoubtedly attract the usual hordes of wizard wannabes when it opens on Nov. 18. But this time seeing more adults than kids won't be as creepy: The Potter flick is the first in the series to get a PG-13 rating. (Seeing the adults in costume is a whole other thing).
Director Mike Newell ('Four Weddings and a Funeral') helms the pic, with Daniel Radcliffe back as Harry, Emma Watson as Hermione, and Rupert Grint as red-headed Ron. Newcomers include Brendan Gleeson as Mad-Eye Moody, Robert Pattinson as Cedric Diggory, Miranda Richardson as Rita Skeeter, and Ralph Fiennes as -- yep, we're sayin' it -- Voldemort.
