Tom Cruise’s decision to end his iconic Mission: Impossible franchise with a two-parter is certainly an interesting idea.

Moreover, judging by the box office performance of the first part and the way Ethan Hunt and Gabriel’s face-off has generated hype for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two, it’s gearing toward being a masterstroke move. However, as much as this is a bold idea, it’s far from very original.

Hollywood has seen multiple big franchises close their books with two chapters, including the legendary fantasy series Harry Potter. The true fans of J.K Rowling’s story rarely missed any detail of the adventures that lasted for more than a decade. However, since the final plot was stretched across two parts, even the eagle-eyed fans were blindsided by some antics and it took a second viewing or an interview with one of the cast members to truly understand what happened and why it happened.

How Voldemort Stunned Harry Potter Fans as well as Tom Felton

Let’s first roll up our sleeves and recall what happened in the last two chapters – the seventh and eighth installments – of Harry Potter.

Lord Voldemort, who is obsessed with the ideology of the superiority of pure-blood wizards, takes over the Ministry of Magic, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione end up getting out of his sight and searching for a way to destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes.

The second chapter sees the squad race against time to destroy the remaining Horcruxes and Harry faces off Voldemort for the last time. But it wasn’t Voldemort’s torturous reign or Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s desperation that left fans with their jaws open the widest across the two Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies.

Rather it was Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) magnificent gesture of hugging Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) during the courtyard scene involving Lucius Malfoy that surprised many, including the actor Tom Felton himself, because it wasn’t part of the script.

“It was pretty terrifying to be honest with you. That wasn’t in the script… we did that take like 25 times, he only hugged me once. It was a one-off thing that he just threw at me,”

Felton said during a 2011 comic-con appearance.

“I was standing there like ‘What the hell is he doing? Why is he hugging me in this weird fashion?’ It was very strange; it was a surprise for me.”

Well done to Fiennes for delivering the awkward scene that leaves Potterheads scratching their heads and grinding their teeth to this day.

Did Tom Felton Push Margot Robbie’s Husband?

Talking about Potterheads, it’ll be interesting to learn what self-proclaimed Harry Potter super fan Margot Robbie thinks about this interaction between Draco and Voldemort. Though, we do know she absolutely loves another scene involving Draco.

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the Barbie star revealed her husband, Tom Ackerley, was one of the extras in the 2004 movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

“My husband is in the Harry Potter movies,” she told Norton. “I know, I was like, ‘Had you told me sooner we would’ve been married very quickly.’”

She added that nine-year-old Ackerley – who is now a successful producer – was pushed by Draco as he approached Buckbeak in one of the scenes in the third installment. Fair to say, that things turned out pretty well for the Slytherin extra since that shove.
