Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
35mm Preview Trailer Film

Adapted from the best-selling novel by J.K. Rowling comes the second installment of this fantasy adventure film, directed by Chris Columbus. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) return for a second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where Headmaster Dumbledore (Richard Harris), Professor Snape (Alan Rickman), Professor McGonagall (Maggie Smith), and Hagrid the Giant (Robbie Coltrane) are joined by new faculty members Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh), a self-centered expert in Defense against the Dark Arts, and Sprout (Miriam Margolyes), who teaches Herbology. However, it isn't long before Harry and company discover something is amiss at Hogwarts: Students are petrified like statues, threats are written in blood on the walls, and a deadly monster is on the loose. It seems that someone has opened the mysterious Chamber of Secrets, letting loose the monster and all its calamitous powers. As Harry, Ron, and Hermione set out to find the secret chamber and slay the beast, speculation is rife that one of the heirs of Salazar Slytherin, the co-founder of the school, opened the chamber as a warning against the presence of "mudbloods" (magic-users of impure lineage) at the school - and that the culprit may be fellow student Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton). Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets featured Richard Harris' second and final appearance as Headmaster Dumbledore Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is nothing less than the perfect visual incarnation of J.K. Rowling's world of swooping owls and flying broomsticks. The eye-popping visuals have numerous opportunities to shine. The landscape Chris Columbus and cinematographer Roger Pratt have created, with Hogwarts looking more like a real place and less like a movie set this time around. The characters and sets have a familiarity that helps make this film feel more natural than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Besides the film's many technical achievements, the actors really deliver, particularly Kenneth Branagh as the vain, egotistical Gilderoy Lockhart. Daniel Radcliffe has the look and reluctant heroism of Harry down perfectly, and Emma Watson is deliciously petulant and precocious as Hermione. Warwick Davis, John Cleese, Jason Isaacs, and Fiona Shaw co-star.
