London Set to Go Potty Over Harry Premiere
- Fans expected to swamp Leicester Square as stars turn out for world screening

HARRY POTTER heads to London in the first week of November - for its star-studded world premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Huge crowds are expected to gather outside the cinema hoping to catch a glimpse of cast-members and celebs at the premiere of the year's most hotly anticipated movie, which takes place on November 4.

Based on the first novel by JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is expected to smash box office records. The UKP125 million blockbuster features a Brit-heavy cast including Alan Rickman, Julie Walters, John Cleese, Robbie Coltrane, Richard Harris and 12 year-old Daniel Radcliffe as the young magician.

Londoners will have to wait until the film is released on November 16 to see if it justifies the hype - check London cinema listings for advance previews.
