Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a 2007fantasyadventurefilm, based on the novel of the same name, by J. K. Rowling. Directed by David Yates, produced by David Heyman's company Heyday Films, and written by Michael Goldenberg, it is the fifth film in the popular Harry Potter film series. The story follows Harry Potter in his fifth year at the magic school Hogwarts. The Ministry of Magic refuses to believe the return of Lord Voldemort and appoints bureaucratDolores Umbridge as a teacher at the school.
Live-action filming took place in England and Scotland for exterior locations and Leavesden Film Studios in Watford for interior locations from February to November 2006, with a one-month break in June. Post-production on the film continued for several months afterwards to add in visual effects. The film's budget was reportedly between GB£75 and 100 million (US$150–200 million). Warner Bros., the distributor of the film, released it in the UK on 12 July2007, and in the US on 11 July, both in conventional and IMAX theatres.
It is the sixth-highest grossing film of all time, and a critical and commercial success, acclaimed as "the best one yet by Rowling, who has consistently offered praise for the film adaptations of her work. In general, critics received the film well. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone called the film "the best of the series so far, [with] the laughs, the jitters and the juice to make even nonbelievers wild about Harry". The film opened to a worldwide 5-day opening of $333 million, third all-time, and grossed $939 million total, the second to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End for the greatest total of 2007.

Filming


Though the producers explored options to film outside of the UK, Leavesden Film Studios in Watford was again the location on which many of the interior scenes, including the Great Hall, Privet Drive and Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place were shot.Locations in England included the River Thames, for the flight of the Order of the Phoenix to Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place, and the flight of Dumbledore's Army to the Ministry of Magic. This sequence also includes such landmarks as the London Eye, Canary Wharf, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the HMS Belfast .Filming at Platform 9¾ took place at King's Cross Station, as it has in the past. A telephone booth near Scotland Yard was used as Harry and Arthur Weasley enter the Ministry , while the crew closed the Westminster tube station on 22 October2006 to allow for filming of Arthur Weasley accompanying Harry to his trial at the Ministry of Magic. Other scenes were filmed in and around Oxford , specifically at nearby Blenheim Palace in Woodstock .
Various locations around Scotland were used for exterior shots. Fort William was used to show 'snow-capped mountains and glens' vital for the opening sequence of the film . In Glenfinnan, the Hogwarts Express crosses a viaduct, as it has in the past films .Aerial scenes were shot in Glen Coe, in Clachaig Gully , and Glen Etive, which, at the time of filming, was one of the few places in Scotland without snow, making it ideal for a backdrop .Several locations were used which do not appear in the final cut of the film. In Virginia Water, scenes were shot where Professor McGonagall recovers from Stunning Spells , and Burnham Beeches was used for filming the scene where Hagrid introduces his fifth-year Care of Magical Creatures class to Thestrals . Harry skips stones in front of Bonnie Prince Charlie's Monument in Glenfinnan in another cut scene .

Visual effects


The film required over 1,400 visual effects shots, and the London-based company Double Negative created more than 950 of them. Working for six months on previsualisation starting in September 2005, Double Negative was largely responsible for sequences in the Room of Requirement, the Forbidden Forest, the Hall of Prophecies, and the Death Chamber .
A new character in the film, Grawp, Hagrid's giant half-brother, came to life by a new technology called Soul Capturing, developed by Image Metrics. Instead of building the character from scratch, the movements and facial expressions of actor Tony Maudsley were used to model Grawp's actions .
