Film trailer: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2'
Thursday 28 April 2011
The first full-length trailer for
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was released late on April 27, offering a look at the 3D finale of the phenomenal film franchise adapting J.K. Rowling's book series.
The footage begins where Part 1 ended, with Voldemort's power growing stronger. He's taken control of Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic and Part 2 finds Harry, Ron, and Hermione trying to find the remaining Horcruxes in an attempt to defeat the evil Lord.
In this last installment, two minutes of fast-paced excerpts build to the ultimate confrontation - the battle for Harry's life surrounded by a wizarding world in shambles.
Images depict the clashes between the forces of good and evil, with shots of everyone from Bellatrix Lestrange to Ginny Weasley, Snape to Hagrid, escalating in the Death Eaters' chaotic battle for Hogwarts and concluding in a devastating war.
Potter faces Voldemort in encounters from the dark woods to an abyss, and finally with the ultimate showdown - where it all ends.
David Yates directs his fourth Potter film, while Daniel Radcliff, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint reprising their roles as Harry, Hermoine and Ron. The stellar cast includes Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Gary Oldham, Tom Felton, Emma Thompson, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent, Michael Gambon, Ciarán Hinds, Robbie Coltrane, John Hurt, Maggie Smith, Helena Bonham Carter, and more.
Not only is this finale epic, its box office reaction could also prove phenomenal. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will be released July 13-15 in 3D and IMAX worldwide after the London premiere on July 7.
