Harry Potter 7 Header 9 Hi Res Photos from Deathly Hallows Part 1

It’s a been a crazy year for Potter fans with the movie set catching fire, the new theme park opening at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, the announcement that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released in two parts and some sneak peeks at the epilogue of the final film, where the kids are aged beyond the years we knew them.

People all across the world have become enamored with everything related to Harry Potter and his fan base reaches far and wide.

Last week, RupertGrint.net was kind enough to scan in the photos from Entertainment  Weekly and we shared those images with you, but today we have those photos as well as some additional images, in glorious high resolution.

There were some minor spoilers given in our latest Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows report from last week and I won’t print them again in this article, but head over there and check it out if you want to read it and find out more about where the split point in the Deathly Hallows films will be in reference to the book.  Otherwise, for now, enjoy these spoiler-free photos:

Each of the Potter films have been full of action and excitement, while employing breathtaking visual effects and well-framed shots. These photos assure me that audiences can expect no less than the same thing from the final two Harry Potter films. The silliest photo of the lot is the one with Harry in the sidecar (is that supposed to be Radcliffe’s serious face?) My favorite photo is the one with Ron in the foreground and Harry in the background because both are in focus. Normally a camera can only focus on either the foreground or background, so this is most likely a split shot and, for some reason, I find it to be exquisite.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows brings back stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rubert Grint, Robbie Coltrane, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Wright, Jason Issacs, Helena Bonham Carter and a virtually unrecognizable Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort. This is director David Yates’ 3rd time behind the camera – after Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince – working from a Steve Kloves screenplay.

I have never read any of the Harry Potter books, there I said it; the truth is out there and I can never take it back. You know what, though? The way the movies have been made I don’t need to read the books to enjoy and follow the story.

I’m not in the camp of “You have to read the books to appreciate the movie,”; I think if a movie can stand on its own, apart from the book, then the filmmaker has achieved a great success. So far, all of the Potter films have done that for me and I’m looking forward to watching both parts of Deathly Hallows when they hit theaters. I might even put on my glasses and bring my wand with me.

Because the books have done so well – 6.9 million copies of Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince sold in the U.S. alone! – it’s really no wonder that the entire movie franchise has brought in a staggering domestic gross of over $1.7 BILLION! If that trend continues when the Deathly Hallows releases both later this year and next summer (and there’s no reason to think it won’t), I can see the number easily hitting $2.5 billion.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 opens in theaters November 19th, 2010 – part 2 opens on July 15th, 2011.

  1. im actually looking foward to the last chapter in this saga. ive never read the books either paul, but i think i’ll start just for the extra background stuff on everyone, and it’d be fun to see what was tweeked, discarded, or otherwise changed from the books.

    • Reading the books is enjoyable because there are characters who make reappearances throughout the books who were only in 1 movie. Such as Madam Sprout, Flitwick, Hooch, and Olivander.

  2. I am sure that reading the books is not needed, but there is so much that is left out of the movies, and in some cases, added. The Burrow is the safe haven where the Order went after removing Harry from Privet Drive, however, due to adding things to The Half Blood Prince, the Burrow is now a burned down home. That scene was ignorant to me as they were leaving things out and then added stuff that wasn’t there. Anyway, not that I am a reader…but the books are better than the movies.

    • felton, thats usually the case on book-to-film translations, the books come out on top.

  3. PAUL YOUNG
    I cant believe you havent read all the books! There must be somethings you dont understand. Im glad the films are great,they are good adaptations,but like always the books are better. But actually this time,theyve changed some things that may actually mae the movie bette than the book. Iam a huge fan. This is the only movie (and part 2 ofcourse) That im truly DYING to see. BTW,they announced where the split will be,but i dont want to spoil it if you dont know….Oh and my fave pic is that one as Well! The camera does magic in that one. I also like the death eaters one…. :D

    • i think the split was covered already on SR

  4. Felton
    They needed to have an action scene in the middle of HBP to make the film flow better,but it couldve been made much better IMO.

  5. Its in a different place Anthony,they changed it. Its NOT when the snatcher chase ends trust me….

    BTW I imagined you exactly like that on the pic LMAO!

    • are you making fun of me young sir?

  6. I understand books are usually better than the movies. I tried to acknowledge that but perhaps it didn’t come out the way I intended. I just don’t see why the Burrow was burned…many other things could have been done without destroying an important house that is used in the seventh book. Other things were smaller and not really needed and I understand that. I was just spitting things out regarding blatant changes not just minor omissions.

  7. so where is the split in the movie?

  8. Anthony
    No im not. Alittle LOL JK

    Felton

    SPOILERSSSSS!

    The malfoy manor scene when hermione gets tortured is in part 1,and the movies last shot is when voldemort grabs the elder wand and points it in the sky. the split is about chapter 24 of the book…. :)

  9. You don’t need to read the books to appreciate the movies, but if you want a better understanding of the story and the characters, the books will always trump the movies.

    Still, having read the books, I’m interested to see how people who haven’t react to the movies, whether they’re coherant and understandable or not… I shold think, for the most part yes, but I am curious.

  10. JOSHI is correct :)

  14. It’s Interesting to see how far this movie series has come, I remember when I was reading the books, hearing that it was going to made into a movie. Now it’s over.
