Don’t know if someone posted this already, but here are the runtimes of all six films (according to IMDB and here):

Sorcerer’s Stone: 152
Chamber of Secrets: 161
Prisoner of Azkaban: 141
Goblet of Fire: 157
Order of the Phoenix: 138
Half-Blood Prince: 153

So the new film is the 3rd longest so far. Pretty cool! :) Chamber of Secrets still holds it’s firm record as the longest in the series (almost beat by Goblet of Fire).

Although it is certainly too early to speculate, I wonder how long the two halves of Deathly Hallows will be? Do you think it will be two long movies (like about as long as, let’s say, Sorcerer’s Stone) or two short movies (like Order of the Phoenix)? And I haven’t been here for a while, does anyone know if the point where they have split the movies has been revealed?

Really cant wait! Hopefully they don’t leave too much from the book out, but so far it doesn’t seem like they will. The trailers are amazing!

This sounds like more than enough time to cover the main events and key components of the story to me, in addition to providing plenty of more for us to relish! Considering that the Order of the Phoenix, as a book, lasted over a third longer but lasted shorter as a film, none of us as fans can complain about the length. This is probably going to be the most loyal adaptation we have seen since Chamber of Secrets as far as I am concerned.

Guess That Book

The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and a drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive... The only person left outdoors was a teenage boy who was lying flat on his back in a flower bed outside number four.
