Children's hero HARRY POTTER is likely to smash the record for the most downloads for a film trailer.
The wizard of HOGWARTS school is being turned into film HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE and yesterday (01MAR01) WARNER BROS posted a three-minute trailer on the net.
Last year (00) the trailer for LORD OF THE RINGS was downloaded by more than 1.7 million people on the first day it went online. Now the release of the first Harry Potter trailer looks set to beat even that record. (PDD/WNWCAN/KW)
