Make Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire a 3 hour movie! sign now

To Warner Bros. Studios:

It has come to my attention that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth film in the Harry Potter series, is going to be 2 hours and 30 minutes long, or around there. Roughly 2 and a half hours, which is around the same running time as the first and second Harry Potter films. It strikes me as odd, since the Goblet of Fire book is WAY longer than Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets.

Now, as much as I understand your worries about the film's success, it is in the interest of the fans of the book that the film be longer, so as to accomodate more faithfulness to book. To cut out so much stuff, just so that the film can be too short is completely ridiculous.

If you really are worried about a 3+ hour film being successful or not, then I'd say you have no reason to worry. Long films are usually very successful. Just look at Lord of the Rings or Titanic as prime examples. In fact, if Goblet of Fire was to be made into a 3 hour movie, the public would accept it better, because the fans of the book would be pleased that there could be more of the book in the movie.

Prisoner of Azkaban was about 2 hours and 15 minutes long, and I found this absolutely ridiculous. The movie SHOULD have been 3 hours long, and not have so much cut out of it. I realise it's an adaptation, but when you unnecissarily cut things out, just because you're worried about the running time, it is just irresponsible. 2 hours and 15 minutes is WAY too short.

This is a plea from the fans of the books that you make Goblet of Fire 3 hours or longer. NO SHORTER. Because Goblet of Fire is my personal favourite of all the books, and I would be horrified to see it made into a 2 and a half hour long movie. That's just not enough time to put Goblet of Fire on the screen.

I realise the film is already in production, but you could have re-writes, and additional shooting if necissary. I don't care what you have to do, just do not release the film until it's running time is 180 minutes or more.

    A 2 and a half version would be a travesty, just like PoA. It needs to be more than 3 hours, otherwise there will just be too much cut out. I don't wanna see another hack job like Cuaron gave us. GOF is the best, and needs to be done right!

    I think Warner Bros. needs to realise that they aren't dealing with just some ordinary book adaptation here! They seemed to realise this on the first and second movies, but with the third one, they completely threw faithfulness out the window, and just ma

    Sorry, but POA *really* sucked. PLEASE don't do this to Goblet of Fire. If the 4th movie is as horrible as the one we just recently witnessed, I won't be seeing any more of them.

    We have delt with Dan's blue eyes, young untrained actors, and Alfonzo's horrific twisting of a spectular ending, please don't incurr our wrath by having HP3 less than 3 hours long. If it was up to me and my colleges we would most certianly make this a 2

    Please make GoF at least three hours long, two hours fifteen minutes is outrageous.

    Longer movies mean better ratings, more money, and bigger audiences. I don't know why they think 2.5 hours is gonna cut it without us. With the cuts, lord of the rings movies were damn near 3 hours long. Without cuts, the whole trilogy was like 12 hours.

    I was quite disappointed with the length of Prisoner of Azkaban and I'd be devasted if Goblet of Fire was only 2 and a half hours long!

    It is one of the longest books, how can it be the shortest movie without compromising the intended story? I saw "The Prizoner of Azkaban" with someone who had not read that book. They had trouble figuring out what was going on because too much valuable in
