In mid-July, it'll be all Harry all the time. This fifth movie adaptation of the J.K. Rowling books about a boy wizard opens just eight days before the last novel in the series hits the stores. The films have vaulted in quality since Chris Columbus vacated the director's chair for Alfonso Cuaron (Prisoner of Azkaban) and Mike Newell (Goblet of Fire). This time the helmer is David Yates, who has mostly done intimate work for TV. Petit, reliable Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake) is the latest menace at Hogwart's.
