Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 Trailer

Source: YouTube

"You really don't stand a chance."

All right Harry Potter fans, get excited! Warner Brothers debuted a very short mini-trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I during the MTV Movie Awards tonight (which were so awful I'm still barfing, FYI). This clip feels like a shorten version of a full-length trailer we'll most likely see sometime in the next month or two, since the first half of Deathly Hallows doesn't hit theaters 'til November - why they feel the need to show so much before the actually movie comes out will continue to bother me. Anyhow, it looks like they've decided to continue marketing the entire conclusion as one big finale. As in, there are scenes from both movies in this trailer - not quite sure where they're going to end the first half. Anyway, this looks pretty cool, so have a look-see!

Voldemort's power is growing. He now has control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione decide to finish Dumbledore's work and find the rest of the Horcruxes to defeat Voldemort.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows is again directed by British filmmaker David Yates, of Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince previously. The script was also written again by Steve Kloves, of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, and also Half-Blood Prince, but not Order of the Phoenix. This is based on J.K. Rowling's very popular series of books which have already concluded. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I will arrive in theaters on November 19th!

Look any good?

Looks good to me, though I'll probably wait until it comes out on video to watch it, unless there's some particularly magnificent battle that would be best served on the big screen. It's kinda nice to see Ron growing up a little, eh?

Also, I submit a plea to exempt Harry Potter from the general population of too-revealing trailers. After all, it's not like nobody knows the story, or how it's going to end, right? But for movies that aren't based on massively influential pop-culture phenomena I whole-heartedly agree. Maybe you should get a job as a trailer maker, like Cameron Diaz's character in The Holiday. You'd be awesome! Just sayin'.
