It’s Harry’s (Daniel Radcliffe) 4th year at Hogwarts and The Weasley family invite him to stay with them for the last two weeks of the holidays and accompany them to the crowning event of the summer: The Quidditch World Cup Final between Ireland and Bulgary. But things get heated as mysterious are events taking place in the magic world, foreshadowing the comeback of the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).
Meanwhile Hogwarts is looking forward for another great event: The Triwizard Tournament, which is an international magic competition between Hogwarts and two foreign schools: Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. All students being over 17 are allowed to apply and a goblet of fire picks a champion from each school who will fight the dangerous competition. To everybody’s surprise, the goblet of fire picks four champions: Fleur Delacour (Clemence Poesy) for Beauxbatons, Viktor Krum (Stanislav Ianevski) for Durmstrang, Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson) for Hogwarts and, to everybody’s surprise, Harry Potter. Facing this new, popularity, a bad discussion with Ron, and many dangers, Harry takes the challenge and stands up to fight.

Film Fetish trivia:
Mike Newell is the first British director the film series has had.
Alfonso Cuaron was offered the chance to direct this installment in the series, but declined because he was still working on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Mike Newell decided against the studio’s original idea of adapting the 636 page book into two separate films to be released several months apart, figuring that he could cut enough of the book’s bulky subplots to make a workable film. It was Alfonso Cuaron, the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban who convinced him.
During the underwater filming of the movie, Daniel Radcliffe, some cast members, and the underwater crew posed for a photo which Radcliffe later sent out as a Christmas card with Rudolph noses and antlers Photoshopped on all of their faces.
