The news you might've missed:
After 10 years, the end of "Harry Potter's" cinematic tale has arrived. Fans packed into London's Trafalgar Square on Thursday for the world premiere, and the cast talked to CNN about what it was like to say goodbye to the long-running franchise.
If you're planning on seeing "Potter" stateside on July 15, check to make sure there's still a ticket available at a showing near you. Online retailer Fandango reports that the site has already sold out of more than 2,000 showings across the U.S., from "Anchorage, Alaska to Sunrise, Florida," according to a statement. So far, it's Fandango's fastest selling movie. (Surprise, surprise.)
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" opens July 15. You can catch a sneak peek of never before seen footage during Larry King's "Harry Potter" special this Sunday, July 10 at 8 p.m. ET. Don't forget to send in any questions you have for the cast via iReport by Friday, July 8 at noon, and you could see the answer on CNN.com.
As Christopher Meloni leaves his long-standing role on "Law & Order: SVU," two fan favorites are heading back to the show.
Stephanie March and Diane Neal will reprise their roles as ADA Alexandra Cabot and ADA Casey Novak, respectively, on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The pair will appear for an undetermined number of episodes this fall.
"L&O: SVU" is the only remaining series in the "Law & Order" franchise. March was previously on the show for seven seasons and was replaced by Neal, who appeared on the series for six seasons.
The news out of the Cannes Film Festival in May was that The Weinstein Company had snatched up U.S. rights to Meryl Streep's turn as Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady," and now the international teaser trailer is making its rounds.
The minute-long clip shows Thatcher's advisers counting off all the things that need to be changed to "maximize" her appeal - lose the pearls, lose the hat, and the voice is all wrong - and then Streep-as-Thatcher fills the screen.
Catherine is a kindred spirit!
When I took a look at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Canadian travel itinerary, I was surprised to learn the newlyweds were forgoing major cities like Toronto, yet were stopping by Prince Edward Island. Not that anyone wouldn't be lucky to set foot on the tiny, gorgeous island famous for its red earth, beaches, and seafood - particularly P.E.I. mussels.
But when I learned that the book "Anne of Green Gables," set in P.E.I., was a childhood favorite of Catherine's, it all made sense.
You can always count on a soap opera to offer up a twist.
CNN has confirmed that ABC has licensed "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" to media/production company Prospect Park in a deal which will allow the shows to continue production after leaving the airwaves.
The agreement means that Prospect Park will continue to produce the long-running soaps, which will be made available to fans online and via internet enabled television sets. FULL POST
