Reading it will be bad enough. The movie industry has probably already
approached JKR about this.
They don't have much influence with JKR, I fear.
But I think it can be safely assumed that if Harry dies in the final
book, it will make the actual headlines - probably before the book is
released. It's hard to keep a secret that big, and the media would
probably run with it (unlike previous books, where the press has
played along with the secrecy). The early release of that info would
probably hurt sales numbers for the 7th book (there would be a certain
percentage of the readers who wouldn't want the book if they knew
Harry died in the end). And in the long run, it would probably hurt
the future sales of the entire book series, as well as attendance at
the remaining movies, and subsequent DVD sales. But JKR is a
billionaire. Sales numbers probably don't mean much to her now.
