Director 'denies' Potter audience...just a little - Wild about Harry - MSNBC.com
"David Yates has plenty of experience on the small screen, but "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is the director's major motion picture debut. When TODAYShow.com talked to Yates, the British filmmaker didn't seem intimidated at all by making his first movie for such a devoted fan base..."
We've already got our tickets for Rave tonight for Order of the Phoenix and we're really excited. The previews look great, and the lukewarm reviews I've read seem to be from people who 1) haven't read the books or 2) just don't get it. The last movie was my least favorite--so I have high hopes for this one.
We're also excited for the book -- I have plans to stay up until midnight and go buy it!
