A sense of magic and excitement was in the air in London's Leicester Square as Harry Potter fans waited in the rain to greet cast members attending the premiere of the latest Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."

Producers describe the film — the fourth in the series about the bespectacled young wizard — as the darkest production yet.

Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Potter, attended the premiere Sunday evening along with Robbie Coltrane, who plays Harry's friend Hagrid, Michael Gambon, who stars as the kindly Albus Dumbledore, and Maggie Smith, portrayer of Professor McGonagall.

Author J.K. Rowling has now completed six of the seven Potter books she promised her young readers.
