Something Evil Has Returned To Hogwarts!
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" is the second film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's popular Harry Potter book series. Again directed by Chris Columbus, this first sequel in the Harry Potter franchise also broke box office records and is currently the tenth-highest grossing film of all time.
After barely escaping Lord Voldemort at the end of his first year, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), has returned to spend another boring summer with the uptight Dursleys (Richard Griffiths, Fiona Shaw, Harry Melling) and is eager to return to Hogwarts. However, after an eventful visit from Dobby the House-elf (voiced by Toby Jones) who warns Harry not to return to school for fear of grave danger, Harry is locked in his room and banned from returning to Hogwarts ever again. It's Ron Weasley and his brothers, Fred & George to the rescue, as they fly an enchanted car to get Harry and bring him home to "The Burrow."
Harry's return to the Wizarding World is hardly welcoming as he finds himself in the thick of a fifty year dark quandary where he is the prime suspect. Year 2 presents new challenges and surprises: petrified students, Lucius Malfoy (Jason Issacs), Draco's malicious father, the strengthened rivalry of Gryffindor and Slytherin House (especially in Quidditch), new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, the foppish Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh), Moaning Myrtle (Shirley Henderson), a ghost who haunts a toilet, the Dueling Club, mysterious Hogwarts alumnus, Tom Riddle (Christian Coulson), and the mystery of the Chamber of Secrets.
