Got a couple new updates for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and one could just help you end up at the film's US premiere.

Order of the Phoenix Tickets and Radcliffe

To start, Newsweek has posted a 'web exclusive' with Dan Radcliffe that serves as a Q&A for OotP. Besides discussing his popularity with the ladies, I mean fans, Radcliffe discusses what it is like to play Harry Potter for so long and the changes we can expect in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

You’ve been playing Harry for six years now. Are you still enjoying it?

This film has been the most fun I’ve had, definitely, partly because of Imelda Staunton [who plays Harry’s nemesis, Professor Dolores Umbridge], and partly because of David Yates, our wonderful director, who I have had absolutely the time of my life working with. He pushes me farther and more often than I ever have been before. This is not being detrimental to any of the previous directors because I wouldn’t have been able to do this before, but David has caught me at just the right moment.

Harry’s much angrier in this book. And more bitter.

I think he has what a lot of people after the Holocaust had, which is survivor’s guilt. I think he thinks he should have died rather than Cedric [Diggory, who was killed by Voldemort in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”] Cedric was nothing to Voldemort, and so Harry feels, “I’m the one who should have been taken.”

I find it interesting that most of Harry's anger actually comes from accusations and people not believing his story nor the return of Voldemort. There are those who still believe Harry just does things for the attention, something that frustrates the magical shit out of him.

Check out the full interview at Newsweek.

Once you are done reading that, it is time to get you to the US premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. HBO is offering a sweepstakes that could land you four tickets and $500 faster than if you used the Accio Charm.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opens to theatres on July 13th, 2007.

Stay tuned for updates.
