Foreboding ‘Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows’ Character Banners

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 TV spot Foreboding Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Character Banners

The penultimate entry in the best-selling literary series-turned-blockbuster film franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, arrives this November and promises to be an excellent lead-in to the climactic showdown between the forces of good and evil in Part 2, which arrives next summer.

A new trailer premiered last week for the seventh Harry Potter movie and it gave us a nice taste of just how dark in tone the final adventure with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) will be.  It also offered an early look at newcomers to the series, including esteemed English thespian Bill Nighy as the newly-appointed Minister of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour.

Scrimgeour’s reign at the Minstry of Magic will be all-too short-lived in Deathly Hallows: Part 1, as the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) soon takes control of the Wizarding government himself.  Harry and his companions are forced to flee to the countryside as fugitives, while at the same time tracking down and destroying the Horcruxes – i.e., the magical objects that hold the key to Voldemort’s immortality.

Fans of J.K. Rowling’s original novel are familiar with the intense atmosphere of fear and tension that will persist through the first Deathly Hallows movie.  The new character banners for the film not-so-subtly allude to the fact that Harry, Ron, and Hermione are quite literally always in danger of being captured by He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named’s forces – no matter where they go.

Check out the new banners below:

The gloomy cinematography of the Deathly Hallows footage we’ve glimpsed so far looks deliciously macabre and both halves of the two-part movie look to really amp up the action, suspense, and drama – even more than the sixth film, which was pretty dark in its own right.  So…who’s excited? icon biggrin Foreboding Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Character Banners

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 arrives in regular, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters on November 19th, 2010.  Part 2 will follow on July 15th, 2011.

  1. AMAZING thank you screenrant i love you!!

    • I’m really suprised to find that you were the first to leave a comment here !! ;)

  2. GK333

    LOL i was waiting for this to come up ;)

  3. As much as I dislike the Harry Potter films, something inside of me wants to see this so terribly badly.
    Perhaps it’s the wizard inside that’s suppressed within my cynical, adult body…

  4. Huge fan of the books. Liked the films up until HBP, that film made me angry and missed the point, I thought it was awful. Makes me trepidatious for this finale.

    • Oh get real. HBP was the best of the series. Try separating the books from the films because they are totally SEPARATE mediums in which things need to be expressed differently – for the former, a literary context, the latter a visual and cinematic form blending style and substance.

      HBP had superb cinematography, score, character development, foreshadowing and symbolism making it the best since Azkaban.

      • Yeah bro let’s all fight it out right here, right now.

        • LETS GO!

  5. DrSamBeckett

    Why do you hate HBP so much?! It was good!

  6. ME

    ok Azkabans the best lol HBP is second best :)

  7. @ Me

    Don’t tell me to “get real”, if I genuinely don’t like something then surely I am allowed to both have and express my own opinion, which as it apparently at odds with your opinion means that I am not real and therefore artificial.

    • No, it just means you have a weak opinion, thats all. Most would agree HBP is the best of the movie series. You are entitiled to your opinion but its just wont be widely accepted :) HBP left alot out but the stuff they left in was truly the best stuff we have seen of the series. By far.

    • @DrSamBeckett

      Although i did not hate HBP, i do agree with your opinion. The movie did not capture what the book was all about, and that was truly disappointing. The omission of The Gaunts and other flashbacks made were infuriating to say the least. I try to look for the positive things about the film… and it did have a couple.

  8. nothing beats Cuaran’s Prisoner of Azkaban though!

    • POA, so far, is my favorite movie of the series. That choice may change after DH which was my favorite book of the series.

  9. DH will beat them all im sure.

  10. My opinion is weak? How exactly do you figure that? Just because something is widely accepted as being so doesn’t mean it is, it was widely accepted the world was flat. Last time I checked it wasn’t.

    I didn’t like HBP for many reasons, but none of them make my opinion any stronger or weaker than yours. So here’s an opinion, F*%# you! That strong enough for ya?!

  11. @Benji

    That was my problem, they took too much out that made the book great, and added in stuff that didn’t need to be there.

    • Agreed. Like the attack on the burrow. That scene honestly imo accomplished nothing and wasted time that could have been used for something better.

      • WOW! I thought only Daniel F was allowed to get combative! Anyway, sometimes as much as it pains me, I have for the most part enjoyed all of the films. The “book vs. film” debate will never end for this franchise as well as others.

        • I hate to complain lol. I really did like the movie just wished they changed some things. These last films look like they will do it right though. Ending the book vs. movie debate!

    • That’s been a big problem for me since “The Prisoner of Azkaban.” Leaving out everything about Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs being Lupin, Pettigrew, Sirius, and James and how they wrote the Marauder’s Map.

      It’s always a problem with these books into movie specifically. If they follow too closely and change something (like movies 1 and 2) then those changes are blatant and took me right out of the film. But when they stray off the path so deliberately like in movies 3- to current – - It’s a constant effort to remind myself ‘It’s not the books. It’s not the books.’

      • It’s specifically flashback sequences that seem to get left out, all the stuff from Azkaban you mentioned, and all the HBP backstory, and some of that stuff is so important!

  12. Umm the dark knight called they want their poster design back..

    • bahaha

  13. looks like a cheap version of the posters of dark knight

  14. DrSamBeckett
    LOL i can tell you were pissed…..but really try to see hbp as a FILM,imagine the books never existed. Would you still like it?!

  15. Just wanted to comment and let you know that those of you who are bickering are tools.

  16. Oh No!

  17. rickopolis are u the same as the rickster

    • LOL yes A BOMB hahaha!

  18. DrSamBeckett

    I have faith that the horcrux backstory wi be explained well in Deathly Hallows.

    • It better be, otherwise the whole story will just fall apart.

  19. DrSamBeckett

    Im sure it will,test screeners have mentioned that they will use some flashbacks to explain.

  20. @ Everyone

    Fitting an entire read into 2 hours of visuals is impossible. Even with the separate parts Deathly Hallows has it’s work cut out.

    And I have to say, Order of the Phoenix was my favorite movie. The battle at the end with the surround sound on literary gave me chills. HBP really let me down with the end, even though we all saw it coming I was expecting to cry, and the raising of the wands was really clichéd.

    • Sup

      Ootp was good but the pacing was way too fast,and they cut so many things out. Still,its better than COS where almost everything was in and the film dragged a bit,but all potter movies are good. DH will be the closest to the books there are little changes already: SPOILERS!

      Like wormtail wont die (but he may die in part 2)

      Thats the biggest change probably but the rest is just fine ;)
