Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a 2005 fantasy film directed by Mike Newell and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is based on J. K. Rowling’s 2000 novel of the same name. The film, which is the fourth instalment in the Harry Potter film series, was written by Steve Kloves and produced by David Heyman. The story follows Harry Potter’s fourth year at Hogwarts as he is chosen by the Goblet of Fire to compete in the Triwizard Tournament.
Harry Potter awakens from a nightmare wherein a man named Frank Bryce is killed after overhearing Lord Voldemort conspiring with Peter Pettigrew and another man. While Harry attends the Quidditch World Cup between Ireland and Bulgaria with the Weasleys and Hermione Granger, Death Eaters terrorise the camp, and the man who appeared in Harry’s dream summons the Dark Mark.
At Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore introduces ex-Auror Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. He also announces that the school will host the event known as the Triwizard Tournament, in which three magical schools compete across three dangerous challenges. The Goblet of Fire selects “champions” to take part in the competition: Cedric Diggory of Hufflepuff representing Hogwarts, Viktor Krum representing the Durmstrang Institute from Central Europe, and Fleur Delacour representing Beauxbatons Academy of Magic from France. The Goblet then unexpectedly selects Harry as a fourth champion. Dumbledore is unable to pull the underage Harry out of the tournament, as Ministry official Barty Crouch Sr. insists that the champions are bound by a contract after being selected.
For the first task, each champion must retrieve a golden egg guarded by the dragon they pick. Harry succeeds in retrieving the egg, which contains information about the second challenge. Shortly after, a formal dance event known as the Yule Ball takes place; Harry’s crush Cho Chang attends with Cedric, and Hermione attends with Viktor, making Ron jealous. During the second task, the champions must dive underwater to rescue their mates. Harry finishes third, but is promoted to second behind Cedric due to his “moral fibre”, after saving Fleur’s sister Gabrielle as well as Ron. Afterwards, Harry discovers the corpse of Crouch Sr. in the forest. Later, while waiting for Dumbledore in his office, Harry discovers a Pensieve, which holds Dumbledore’s memories. Harry witnesses a trial in which Igor confesses to the Ministry of Magic names of other Death Eaters, after Voldemort’s defeat. When he names Severus Snape as one, Dumbledore vouches for Snape’s innocence; Snape turned spy against Voldemort before the latter’s downfall. After Karkaroff names Barty Crouch Jr., a devastated Crouch Sr. imprisons his son in Azkaban. Exiting the Pensieve, Harry realizes that Crouch Jr. is the man he saw in his dream.
