Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. studio announced plans for a new series of films based on the works of “Harry Potter” writer J.K. Rowling, expanding a partnership with the best-selling author.
Time Warner Inc., the owner of Warner Bros. film studios and HBO, reported third-quarter profit that beat analysts’ estimates as the latest “Harry Potter” movie boosted sales at its film division.
Warner Bros., releasing its seventh “ Harry Potter ” movie tonight, faces a task even a wizard would find daunting: replacing a series that will have rung up $7.5 billion in ticket sales by the time it ends next summer.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” has generated $32 million in advance U.S. ticket sales, setting the stage for one of Hollywood’s biggest opening weekends.
The next “ Harry Potter ” film won’t be shown in 3-D because Warner Bros. couldn’t convert the movie in time for the Nov. 19 release date.
J.K. Rowling , the world’s richest author, told talk-show host Oprah Winfrey that she “could definitely” write more books in the Harry Potter series.
Amgen Inc. won a U.S. court ruling that bars Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. from selling a generic version of the kidney drug Sensipar until at least 2016.
Warner Bros. said it’s investigating the leak of a portion of the new “Harry Potter” film on Internet file-sharing sites ahead of the movie’s Nov. 19 premiere.
