Ain't It Cool News (

The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day is the weak one. It’ll never know love or friendship and I feel sorry for it.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! In celebration of the newest Harry Potter film let’s take a look behind the scenes of one of the films. This pic comes from a reader and is a quiet moment between arch-enemies Albus Dumbledore and Lord Voldemort from what looks to be the big confrontation at the end of Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. I have seen an image from these films that I’d KILL to post here, but it’s a bit… rude, I guess is the right term, but it does involve a part snake man making a crude gesture… in full make-up. So, you know that image isn’t going to exactly circulate outside of a small group. If I do get my hands on it, you better believe I’ll run it, but in the mean time let’s revel in Pottermania. The country is going crazy for the movie, which broke all sorts of midnight records… and I believe it. I saw a local theater parking lot fuller at 11pm last night than it has been for mid-day weekend movies. Here you go, Potheads! Click to make big!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s pic has struck gold! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    I don't think Richard Harris was a good Dumbledore

    by Dreamwriter

    ...or he wasn't given very good lines or direction. Dumbledore is supposed to be a spritely, lively chap. Richard Harris always seemed to move kinda slowly, didn't seem to smile much.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 9:12 p.m. CST

    Fiennes is asking him

    by gooseud

    "So, Gambon, is it true you havent read the books? Really? REALLY? REALLY REALLY? How can you play your big scene in book 6 without having read book 7 and knowing the reasons behind Dumbledore's actions? Are u serious?" Gambon responded by acting spazzy, sweaty, and generally disheveled.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 9:43 p.m. CST

    Harris was a bad choice

    by Logan_1973

    He played the character as if he were about to keel over at any second. Played it way too old and bent. They expected him to carry on a fight scene in 6 years? Clearly they went for star power in the early goings...

    Harris vs Gambon

    by drave117

    Harris was a better looking Dumbledore, but I feel Gambon is closer to capturing his energy and mischief.

    Why is Abraham Lincoln in a Spielberg biopic?

    by Grasscutter

    Did Spielberg do acid in film school and have a conversation with his American History text? Oh, you're just an idiot who can't construct a simple sentence. Additionally, you're so inept at using the internet you can't even spell Spielberg's name correctly, not to mention your own screen name. Now go get your fucking shine box.

    Harris had the warmth..

    by Wyndam Earle

    Gambon had the essense of power..neither had both. That being said, I liked Harris much better as he seemed like a bloke I'd like to have a pint with. Gambon, not so much.

    I preferred Harris...

    by HyphenatedWords

    But let's be honest, he was on death's door in Chamber of Secrets. Every time he's on screen, I want to offer to help him sit down somewhere and get him some oxygen.<br> <br> But that sly wink and "Do whaht? Good night" from Gambon at the end of Azkaban won me over.

    Great Michael Gambon story

    by JackIsLost

    Tim Burton said that some director wanted Gambon to audition for a role so he sent them his severed head made for "Sleepy Hollow" (after they were done with it). How can you not love a guy like that?

    by BetaRayBill07

    I was just about to say the same thing. That project going forward is major news. Lewis scores Best Actor for this- book it now. Hello? Anyone from this site awake and/or alive since yesterday about noon? Bueller? No one here expects you guys to have breaking news within seconds, but for the love of God say something! Bueller? Anyone?

  • Nov. 20, 2010, 9:06 a.m. CST


    by Lemure_v2

    Regarding this Day-Lewis as Lincoln spiel, you all want AICN to report on it even though you already know about it? Man, next you'll be whining because the DVD column is late and you're unable to see what's coming out for yourselves.

    Holy shit. I don't think I've ever seen anyone(I hate using this word)pwned with such efficiency. You comment on his poor sentence structure, point out he can't spell Spielberg's name, then top it off with pointing out he can't even spell his own screen name.

    Really Harry...

    by phifty2

    ...why drop in here with no provocation just to mention you chatted up Fiennes and Hopkins? It's not like someone was saying he was an asshole in real life and hard to talk to and you had to correct that statement. <p> I'm reminded of Chunk and his story about Michael Jackson, or maybe it was his sister, using Chunk's bathroom.

  • Nov. 20, 2010, 9:55 a.m. CST

    Then go to a different site to hear something you've heard somewhere else anyway. Duh. And that wasn't my mom, it was my gran. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

    Can't Imagine Harris...

    by GeorgieBoy

    ... performing the wizard duels and such. He was better as the old wizard that was past his prime, not one that had a few good years left in him. So, in that regard Gambon serves his purpose perfectly.<br><br> Of course, I think Tracy Morgan would have been a perfect Dumbledore...

    Is Fiennes out of makeup?

    by Royston Lodge

    Was this shot after Fiennes was finished so the makeup has been removed? If so, then why is he in costume, with his wand?<p> Was this at the beginning of the day, with Fiennes having just left the costume truck and walking towards the makeup truck when he ran into Gambon? Seems odd for Gambon to be in full costume if Fiennes hasn't even been to the makeup truck yet.<p> I'm kinda confused here.

  • Nov. 20, 2010, 2:33 p.m. CST

    Royston Lodge

    by Chippy Fon Toast

    They CGI off Ralph Fiennes's nose and replace it with the snake nose. From what I can recall from some of the behind the scenes featurettes, Ralph thought that it would be too difficult to talk/act/emote with his nose smushed and covered in makeup. That's why there are FX reference dots on his head in the photo.

  • Nov. 20, 2010, 2:43 p.m. CST

    Thank you! Much less confused now.

    by Royston Lodge

    I always assumed Voldemort's face was a prosthetic, and I didn't embiggen the photo, so I didn't notice the reference dots.

  • Nov. 20, 2010, 6:18 p.m. CST

    So, they take his nose off in post?

    by Ironhelix

    Or is he just not wearing his makeup? OR (option #3), do I have the wrong fucking character?

    Fiennes actually looks more intimidating WITH the nose

    by Sardonic

    The noseless thing always seemed kind of cartoonish, at least the way they did it in the movies. Also, they should have made his eyes red like in the novel.

    by Kentucky Colonel

    but it's not like I do a lot of name dropping or anything. Then there was the time I quite accidentally asked Grahm Nash where the loo was. Or the time Johnny Cash autographed a "1.5" for me. But that's just tasteless, so I don't do a lot of name dropping (just those three). I could tell you about Chuck Heston, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty (and the list goes on for a long time)......but then what would I write about in my autobiography (for my son to read when I am gone)???

  • Nov. 22, 2010, 2:39 p.m. CST

    That "never feel" speech is not in the book and it's great!!

    by Tall_Boy66

    I fully believe that "Order" is a better film than a book, it was a flabby book and the movie cut it down to the essentials of Harry vs. Umbridge. And that speech / bit where Harry is possessed by Voldy is over too quickly and doesn't make much sense in the novel, in the book that whole speech is just gold. One of my favourite moments in the series, and it isn't even from the novel but it plays so much better on screen.
