Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is a 2004 fantasy-adventure film directed by Alfonso Cuarón and based on the novel by J. K. Rowling. The film is the third installment in the popular Harry Potter series. It stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, as well as Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry's best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Gary Oldman and David Thewlis joined the cast as the new characters Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. The role of Albus Dumbledore was handed to Michael Gambon, taking over from the late Richard Harris, who died of Hodgkin's disease. It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
