oh dear... we should all probably lower our expectations now and still be prepared to be disappointed.

Ugh...seems like an against-type choice.

I guess we'll have to wait and see.

On a related note: has there ever been a movie centered around non-Harry Potter magicians that has been a bona fide hit?

The only decent one I can recall is "The Illusionist" (and maybe "The Prestige" as a distant second), but those were both period pieces.
