Harry Potter

If you haven't gone our of your way to see Richard Linklater's stunning achievement that is Boyhood, make sure you see when and where it will be playing near you right here. But for those of you who have both seen the trailer for the coming-of-age masterpiece and are massive Harry Potter fans, you'll like this clever trailer that was put together to commemorate the wizarding franchise. Potterhood is exactly what you think it would be, framing the story of The Boy Who Lived as if it were the 12-year project Linklater made. The sound editing needs some serious work to make this more effective, but it's very touching to see the aging of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint framed in this cinematic fashion. Watch!

Here's the trailer for Potterhood, inspired by Richard Linklater's Boyhood, from Slate:

Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his older sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), learn to face the realities of growing up, while their divorced parents cope with the ongoing challenges of parenting in an ever-evolving landscape. Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Before Sunrise, Bernie) directs the film, using the same actors, including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the Mason's parents, over 11 years of production. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and is playing in select theaters now, expanding wider soon.
