Flemington, NJ, July 10, 2007 – A new national focus group of 351 Americans indicated that more than half (62%) are interested in watching the new Harry Potter movie after viewing the trailer for the film.
The communications research study was conducted by HCD Research, using its mediacurves.com web site, during July 9-10, to obtain Americans’ views on the new Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
While viewing the movie trailer, participants indicated their levels of interest by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses were recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. Participants were also asked pre- and post-viewing questions regarding the movie.
