Harry Potter and the Traveling Muggles
This past week was a biggie for J. K. Rowling. The sixth installment of her Harry Potter series hit theaters on Wednesday, shattering box office records to the tune of $58 million and change. Shh, if you listen carefully, you can hear the clanking of loot falling into Rowling's already sizable bank account.
The film takes place in a multitude of destinations, following Harry through London, Bulgaria, Norway, Ireland, and even Wollongong, Australia. If your portkey is rusty or your broomstick outdated, you may have to catch a plane with the rest of the Muggles to visit these sites. Thankfully, the good folks at the Telegraph have put together a dandy list of destinations from the film (both real and fictional).
Meanwhile, here's what happens when a bunch of college students attempt Quidditch in a Brooklyn park.
