Information about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a 2005 (14 years ago) fantasy adventure film, based on J. K. Rowling's novel of the same name. The movie is the fourth installment in the Harry Potter movie series, although 1492 (527 years ago) pictures (wallpaper) decided to leave the series. The movie was directed by Mike Newell and produced by David Heyman. The screenplay was penned by Steve Kloves. The movie stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson (51 walls) as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. The movie is set durring the trio's fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A highly dangerous competition, the Triwizard Tournament, is being held at Hogwarts with only one student from each of the three competing schools selected to take part, but mystery occurs when the Goblet of Fire chooses Harry Potter as a fourth competitor.

Filming began in early 2004 (15 years ago) and the scenes of Hogwarts took place at the Leavesden movie Studios. Five days after its release, the movie had grossed over US$102 million at the North American box office, the highest first-weekend tally for a Harry Potter film, and enjoyed an immensely successful run at the box office, earning over $895 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing movie of 2005 (14 years ago) and the 8th-highest grossing movie of all time. It was the third highest grossing movie in the U.S. for 2005 (14 years ago) making $290 million. As of Jul. 2009 (10 years ago) it is the unadjusted 12th highest-grossing movie of all time. As of Jul. 2009 (10 years ago) it is currently the third-highest grossing Harry Potter film, behind Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

The movie was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Art Direction, but lost to Memoirs of a Geisha. However, the movie won BAFTA Award for Best Production Design making it the only Potter movie to win a BAFTA award. This was also the first Harry Potter movie to receive a PG-13 rating by the MPAA and a 12A by the BBFC or its international equivalents (for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images), the preceding movies and the following Half-Blood Prince movie adaptation having been rated PG or its international equivalents. This was the second Harry Potter movie to be released in IMAX theaters.

Plot

Harry Potter dreams about an event while it takes place. He sees an elderly man investigate a light that is shining in the house he cares for and overhears Lord Voldemort making plans with Peter Pettigrew and another man that Harry does not recognize. The caretaker is caught and killed by Voldemort. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger express concern over Harry's dreams. The Quidditch World Cup permits Harry a distraction from his nightmares. However, followers of Voldemort known as Death Eaters attack and destroy the spectators' campsites after the match.

At Hogwarts, headmaster Albus Dumbledore introduces a new teacher, a man known for his powerful magic and his all-seeing glass eye, the auror Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody. Harry, along with his classmates, notices Moody frequently drinking from a flask. Dumbledore also announces that the school will host the Triwizard Tournament, in which one wizard from each of three schools competes in three difficult tasks. The champions are selected by the Goblet of Fire, a magical cup into which the names of candidates are placed. Cedric Diggory is chosen to represent Hogwarts, Quidditch champion Viktor Krum is chosen to represent Durmstrang Institute, and Fleur Delacour is selected to represent Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. The goblet unexpectedly chooses a fourth champion, Harry. As Harry is underage and therefore should have been ineligible to compete, Hogwarts teachers and fellow students alike are suspicious.

In their first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson, the students learn of the three Unforgivable Curses. The Imperius Curse causes absence of free will, the Cruciatus Curse causes unbearable pain, and the final curse, Avada Kedavra, causes death.

In the first task, each of the four champions are instructed to retrieve a golden egg guarded by a dragon. Moody probes Harry about which talent he should use to overcome the dragon, and the two ultimately decide upon flying. Harry summons his broomstick and retrieves the egg, which contains information about the second challenge. In exchange for previous aid, Cedric Diggory provides him with a clue that prompts him to open the egg underwater. He learns that the second task entails the retrieval of "something precious" to each of the competitors from mermaids in the nearby Black Lake. In last-minute preparation for the task, long-time friend Neville Longbottom provides Harry with Gillyweed, which allows him to breathe underwater. Harry is the first to arrive at the location, and finds Ron, Hermione, Cho Chang and Fleur's sister, Gabrielle Delacour, in suspended animation. Finishing last in an attempt to free all four at once, Harry is awarded second place for "outstanding moral fiber."

Ministry official Barty Crouch is found dead shortly after the second task. While waiting in Dumbledore's office, Harry's curiosity leads him to look into Dumbledore's pensieve, causing him to revisit one of Dumbledore's memories. He witnesses a trial before the Wizengamot (Wizard Court) in which captured Death Eater Igor Karkaroff, the current headmaster of Dumstrang, denounces a number of Death Eaters, including both Severus Snape and Barty Crouch Jr. While Dumbledore vouches for Snape's integrity, Crouch Sr. is horrified at this revelation and denounces his son, sending him to Azkaban. Upon returning to reality, Dumbledore tells Harry that he is searching his memories for a clue as to why extraordinary events have taken place at Hogwarts since the start of the Triwizard Tournament. While walking the halls Harry is confronted by Snape, who believes Harry has stolen the ingredients for Polyjuice Potion, by which a person can change their appearance.

In the Triwizard Cup's third and final task, the four competitors are placed inside a large hedge maze, the challenge being to reach the cup first. Viktor Krum, acting under the Imperius curse, incapacitates Delacour and attempts to do the same to Cedric. Harry stops Cedric from attacking Krum, and the two run for the cup. When Cedric is trapped by vines, Harry frees him and the two claim a draw and touch the cup together.

The Triwizard Cup transports the two champions to a graveyard where Voldemort is waiting for Harry. Peter Pettigrew kills Cedric and traps Harry. Pettigrew performs a ritual that rejuvenates Voldemort, who then summons the Death Eaters and bids them witness a duel between their lord and his nemesis. As Harry repels Voldemort's killing curse, a connection called Priori Incantatem occurs between their wands. Harry's wand forces Voldemort's to disgorge the spirits of the people Voldemort has most recently killed, including Harry's parents and Cedric. Harry is briefly protected by the spirits and escapes with Cedric's body using the cup.

Upon his return, Harry tells Dumbledore and Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge that Voldemort has returned and is responsible for Cedric's death. Moody leads Harry back to the castle, where his questions make Harry suspicious. Upon the arrival of Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall, Moody transforms into Barty Crouch Jr.; the Polyjuice Potion he kept in his flask wears off. The real Alastor Moody has been kept prisoner in a trunk.

As the representatives from Durmstrang and Beauxbatons depart, Dumbledore exhorts them to stand together against Voldemort, telling them that "Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between doing what is right, and what is easy."

Reception

The movie received generally positive reviews from critics and as of Jul. 2009 (10 years ago) holds an 88% "Certified Fresh" approval rating overall and an 89% "Cream of the Crop" rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Likewise at Metacritic, the movie has the same score as The Prisoner of Azkaban, with both movies receiving an 81 out of 100, which indicates "universal acclaim"; they are the most favourably reviewed Harry Potter movies on the site. The New York Daily News praised the movie for both its humour and its dark tone. The young actors were praised for demonstrating a "greater range of subtle emotions", particularly Daniel Radcliffe whom Variety described as delivering a "dimensional and nuanced performance". New cast members were also praised: Brendan Gleeson's portrayal of Mad-Eye Moody was described as "colourful"; Miranda Richardson's scenes as Rita Skeeter were described as "wonderful"; and Ralph Fiennes's portrayal of Lord Voldemort was described as "sublime villainy".

The maturity of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, among others, impressed most critics. While the major characters were portrayed as children in the previous films, "they have subtly transitioned into teenagers (in Goblet of Fire)" according to one USA Today reviewer. Harry has also physically matured since Prisoner of Azkaban. In the scene in the prefects' bathroom, Daniel Radcliffe's character is shown with significant axillary hair and muscle growth.

Negative criticism included the film's pace which The Arizona Republic described as being "far too episodic", while CNN.com described the movie as "clunky and disjointed". Another criticism was that the many supporting characters did not get enough screen time. Some fans criticised the movie for changing and leaving out too much of the source material, particularly those parts that developed character and set-up events that occur later in the series.
