Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows poster and trailer
All you Harry Potter fans have got something here to wet your pants with, and that's the cool teaser poster for Harry Potter (part 7) and the Deathly Hallows. And not only that, the trailer for the movies has been released too. This final chapter of the Harry Potter series is divided into two movies; Part I will be released on the 19th of November 2010 and Part II on the 15th of July 2011. Both parts will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in 2D and 3D formats on their individual release dates. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be the first-and-only entry from the series to be entirely in 3D.
HARRY POTTER and the DEATHLY HALLOWS is directed by David Yates who helmed the previous two movies. David Heyman and David Barron serve as producers for the film and the screenplay is written by Steve Kloves, the screenwriter of the first four and sixth entries.
On the issue of dividing the final chapter of the Harry Potter saga into two parts, scriptwriter Steve Kloves has this to say:
"Years ago, we briefly — and seriously — considered doing Goblet of Fire as two films. So this concept is not altogether new. As for Deathly Hallows, I intuited — almost from the first moments I began reading it and certainly once I'd finished — that to realise the story in a single film was going to be a tall order. Others in 'the group' felt similarly. So the idea of two films began to get kicked around as early as late summer of 2007. We didn't take it lightly. But ultimately everyone felt that despite the challenges it would present, it was the most sound creative decision.
I'm sure some will think we're crazy. My wife looked at me cross-eyed when I first mentioned it. But I'm really excited about it because it should allow us to stretch a bit with the characters and give them the proper send-off. The story is highly emotional and those moments deserve time to breathe. And, personally, I feel we owe it to [author] Jo [Rowling] — in order to preserve the integrity of the work — and the fans — for their loyalty all these years — to give them the best and most complete experience possible."
It is interesting to note that this teaser poster is like a consistent contrast to the poster of the first movie; and the poster does spell it literally; "It All Ends Here"
