Paul Needham Talks Harry Potter on Charlie Rose Show

Paul Needham stopped by the Charlie Rose Show earlier this week, to chat about the film on the tip of just about everyone's tongue, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2."

The film is truly owning its phenomenon status now, after shattering previous box office records, taking in a staggering $168.6 million domestically in its first three days in theaters.

Needham sat down with Nancy Gibbs, David Denby and Charlie Rose to chat about the end of an era, explaining why he feels the last film is actually better than the seventh and final book. He said, "The last book, when it came out, you were racing through it trying to find out if Harry died or not at the end, because you didn't know. Freed of this burden of wondering will Harry die or not, will the world end, does Voldemort win ... the movie is such a joy to watch."
