When Harry Met James
If an old-age-pensioner were menaced in the street by a teenage boy, the police might well be summoned. It seems it is fair enough in the cinema however for Harry Potter to take on James Bond head-to-head.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, opened nationwide on Friday five days ahead of James Bond’s 20th "official" outing, as if the ageing secret agent can no longer quite keep up. That does not take into account extensive Harry Potter "previews" last weekend, which gave the lad an £8 million start.
