Warner Bros have released a poster-like image giving everyone their first look at first look at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Can someone confirm I did the title right? The film's title is 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' so should I de-capitalise it so that it matches the official title?
Looks just dandy to me!
I wouldn't say this is our first look (since we got that behind the scenes feature a couple weeks ago), but it's still a very bad ass looking poster. Very dark and foreboding. Harry looks like he's been through Hell.
Yup, the most recent films have been the best as they have got darker and darker. Deathly Hallows P1 was possibly the best one so far, I imagine P2 will be the best.
Part 1 has been my favorite of the series so far, so I'm very eager for Part 2. Should be very epic. All we really need now is a full trailer for it.
I wouldn't call the first look either. Just go watch part 1 and you will be fine. :P (im only playing)
Ha! Too true, my good sir. You do make an excellent point about that. I know we've seen quite a bit of footage from that combined trailer that came out last year, but I still want a full trailer dedicated to Part 2...that's all I need!
Part 1 was ok. I think part 2 is going to be epic.
I agree. I think Part 1 was only ok. Granted I've never been a huge Harry Potter fan, but I think that helps. I think some of the hyping of Part 1 was just cause die hard fans were so excited and they overstated it. It really was just ok for me. It felt very much like it was indeed only half a movie, this took away a lot from it and the natural rise and fall of a storyline. In that regard, Part 2 very well should be absolutely epic as we'll finally get to the climax and all of the movie (whereas Part 1 was missing that as it was only the first half of a movie).
There's a big reason why I liked it so much, and didn't really have anything to do with hype. I love the Potter books, and have enjoyed the movies, but on the whole, the films have always felt...rushed. Not in production quality, but it seemed liked they were cramming so much into the films for fan service, that things like character development was left by the wayside. OR they did a bunch of character development and it felt overall boring. The films just haven't struck that right balance of pacing (Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince did very well though). But Part 1 seemed to hit all the right notes. They weren't trying to cram in the whole book, so were able to really devote the necessary time to both development AND the story elements. It just felt more refined and the pacing was perfect.
I'm still holding out for the chance to do Harry Potty BBC Pride and Prejudice style. :D 6 films per book, word for word adaptation. hehe
As much money as they've made off of this franchise, that might not be as entirely out of the question as it sounds, in an effort to milk the franchise lol Harry Potter 42! Book 7! "Umm...mom?! Why is Harry still in school but he looks like grandpa?" lol
hehe, yeah the filming schedule would be...more than those child labor laws allow. :D Seriously, I think the books are fantastic, and the movies chop out too many of the simple details that make them so. Maybe when the film is wrapped Michael Gambon will have a chance to read the books. In 25 yrs or so, the movies will be made again, and I hope when they are it's a nearer thing.
That's a problem that will never really be rectified (as least for fans who became fans through the books). The medium of movies just doesn't allow for such by-the-book adaptations most of the time. Things have to be sacrificed. Just one of the "necessary evils" of the medium. Unless of course, one wants to have to sit through a 6hr movie. Then again, knowing how some of you Potter fans are, that might not be out of the question either lol
Like I said, Pride and Prejudice, BBC style. :D I know you're not a big Harry Potter fan, and to be fair I'll generously estimate that 50% of my feelings are from fangirlishness, but as adaptations the films generally fail to show understanding of the story being told.
Cat? Is that really you? Are you gracing us with your presence? LOL, I too would think a BBC Harry Potter production would be interesting. I remember when I was younger that I really loved the Narnia adaptations that they did.
If you keep sassing me I may never show up! ;)
