Harris versus The Lord of the Rings...

Christmas looks set to be a bumper season for new movies, with two films vying for box office supremacy. Veteran Irish actor Richard Harris is set to star in another one of the worlds biggest blockbusters which will be released this November.

Harris (Gladiator) is one of the stars of the eagerly awaited Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, based on the book by JK Rowling and Steven Kloves and directed by Chris Columbus.

Unknown child actor Daniel Radcliffe will play Harry, while a host of supporting actors will include such luminaries as Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane and John Cleese will join Harris in the movie.

Then following that December will see the arrival of the first installment of the Tolkien trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Irish actor Stewart Townsend was in the film but left after a falling out with the films director.

JRR Tolkien's epic was voted the greatest book of the 20th century and the film version is set to capture the imagination of a new generation of fantasy lovers.

The film's director Peter Jackson says of the forthcoming head-to-head: "Harry Potter opens at least a month before we do, and I hope it's a great movie. I just think that if people love Harry Potter and they get into wizards and magic, then hopefully they can move on into Tolkien."
