    By Michelle Leibowitz, Bloc Reporter “Harry Potter,” “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” series all have something in common: they were best-selling books before they were movies. Now, with over 100 million copies of books sold, Universal Pictures set the release date for a “Fifty Shades of Grey” film adaptation in 2015.

We had to book our tickets to the Warner Brothers Studio a ways in advance, and as such we had a specific time when we were going to tour, which was six at night. This was actually perfect because the studio is a little bit outside actual London, so we were able to see some more things during the day and then devote our night to Harry.
