Royal premiere for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceJuly 30th, 2008 - 3:04 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 30 (ANI): Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been given a real honour after being chosen as the movie that will premiere at the 61 st Royal Film Performance.
The movie, the sixth instalment in the franchise, will be screened on November 17, four days before its nationwide release.
The member of the Royal Family, who will be attending, has not been named as yet, but money raised from the screening will go to the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund.
“We are honoured that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, one of the most anticipated films of the year, has been chosen as the 61st Royal Film Performance, Daily Telegraph quoted Warner Bros UK president Josh Berger as saying.
“Directed, filmed and produced in the UK with a hugely talented and largely British cast and crew, it is particularly fitting that this film will help raise funds to support those from the British film and television community most in need,” Berger added.
The film sees the reunion of its three young stars, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, for another adventure at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The new cast members include Jim Broadbent, who will play Potions Professor Horace Slughorn. (ANI)
