New 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' clips at ShoWest

[Version fran├žaise]

LAS VEGAS — Warner Bros. wowed exhibs Thursday at ShoWest with a high-powered presentation of its upcoming film slate that featured a phalanx of Hollywood celebs.


Audience applause for the movie clips was consistent, with predictable peaks in response to Steven Spielberg’s thriller “A.I. Artificial Intelligence,” set for a June 29 release, and the adaptation of bestseller “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” slated for an end-of-year holiday bow.

Noting the prospect that writers and actors strikes could shut down Hollywood film production by mid-2001, Warners prexy Alan Horn said the studio is assured of having 20 films available for 2002, thanks to productions already completed or well afoot. Those pics include a pair of “Matrix” sequels as well as another “Harry Potter” adaptation that Warners hopes to release next year.
