1. Emma Watson Stars in a New Clip from “The Colony”

Yahoo Movies UK has released an exclusive clip from Emma Watson’s upcoming thriller The Colony (also known as Colonia). The Colony, which will be in cinemas and on demand on 1st of July is directed by Florian Gallenberger. The film is based on the true story of the Colonia Dignidad, which was a sect and an agricultural commune (often described as a cult) of German immigrants in the south of Chile. According to Yahoo Movies UK The Colony was filmed with input from survivors of the German sect.

In The Colony Emma Watson plays “Lena, a woman who infiltrates a cult in 1970s Chile in a bid to rescue her boyfriend Daniel (Daniel Brühl) from the clutches of cult leader Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist).”

The clip released by Yahoo Movies UK features Michael Nyqvist as the cult leader Paul Schäfer talking to Watson’s Lena about her decision to come to the Colony. The short clip does not reveal much, but manages to provide a very intense snapshot of the upcoming film.

The clip can be accessed from here.

And here is the official UK trailer for The Colony:

10. Wizarding World Employee Luis Vielma Honored with Custom POP! Vinyl Figure

A fellow Potter fan recently created a custom POP! Vinyl Figure in honor of Luis Vielma, a victim of the Pulse nightclub shooting and former employee at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando. The figurine is shown below, courtesy of Mugglenet.

13466225_10157023741995075_6500800881159939908_n

 

The fan behind this creation–Brandon Anderson of Colorado Springs, Colorado–took advantage of Funko Pop’s custom vinyl figure creation feature on its website, which allows individuals to purchase blank figurines and customize however they wish.

 

In addition to this touching tribute, Potter fans raised their wands outside the Wizarding World attraction where Vielma worked, and J.K. Rowling personally sent a handwritten note and floral wreath to Vielma’s funeral.

 

 

Our thoughts continue to be with the friends and family of Luis and others affected by this tragedy. Read more about the POP! figure at Huffington Post.

14. Daniel Radcliffe Shares His Donald Trump Story & Talks about His New Play “Privacy”

Daniel Radcliffe shared his story of meeting Donald Trump on the Late Night With Seth Meyers before talking about his new off-Broadway play Privacy. 

Radcliffe tells that he met Trump while visiting New York City for the first time as an 11-year-old for an appearance on the Today Show. According to Radcliffe he was marched over to meet Trump and when the presumptive Republican presidential nominee asked how he was doing, Radcliffe told him that he was nervous about what to talk about in the show. Radcliffe states that Trump’s response was the following:

“You just tell them that you met Mr Trump!”

Radcliffe also talks about his new off-Broadway show Privacy, which is co-created and written by James Graham and Josie Rourke. According to Broadwayworld.com “Privacy is a timely exploration of the digital age that will feature a cast of seven, including Radcliffe as “The Writer.”” In addition to Radcliffe the cast includes De’Adre Aziza, Raffi Barsoumian, Michael Countryman, Rachel Dratch and Reg Rogers.

Broadwayworld.com writes:

“Inspired by the revelations of Edward Snowden, Privacy explores our complicated relationship with technology and data through the funny and heart-breaking travails of a lonely guy (Daniel Radcliffe), who arrives in the city to figure out how to like, tag, and share his life without giving it all away. The play uncovers what our technological choices reveal about who we are, what we want and who’s keeping track of it all. This provocative theatrical event will ask audiences to charge their phones, leave them ON during the performance and to embark on a fascinating dive online and into a new reality where we’re all connected…for better or worse.”

Privacy will begin previews for a limited engagement on July 5th in the Newman Theater. The official press opening of the play will be on Monday, July 18.
