Potter Posters

It hardly seems 9 years since this cherub in the National Health spectacles burst upon the world as Harry Potter. Danial Radcliffe was only 11 years old when he began his movie career as J.K. Rowling's budding wizard. Not many child actors have their faces given such prominence in movie posters. Shirley Temple, Macaulay Culkin, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney are the only ones I can think of without doing a lorryload of research. Warner Brothers has gone overboard on Potter posters. I recently chanced upon a collection of them on Empire States: A Brief History Of Harry Potter Movie Posters (title link). It's a must for fans. Even for more level-headed types, its interesting to see how the young stars have grown up during the course of these movies.
