Attention, muggles. Time to grab yourself a bag of disgusting magical jellybeans and watch the brand new trailer for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2: Revenge of the Hallows. This is the very last Harry Potter movie ever, and it’s the one where everybody dies, especially all the good guy characters you’ve come to love all these years, so you’ve gotta watch. A higher quality version from Apple is due later tonight.
Directed by David Yates, it’s the last time Daniel Radcliffe plays Potter before going off and making less interesting movies. Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are back as Potter’s posse of Hermione Granger and Ron “Bonghead” Weasely, along with Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter.
Judging by the trailer, this could be the darkest, most explodiest of the Potter movies. Oh man, a lot of Harry Potter’s friends have been killed at this point, and Voldemort is not afraid to push that button. On the other hand, Harry Potter isn’t afraid of a little cliff-diving, so I guess good and evil really do balance each other out.
Deathly Hallows Part 2 rides into theaters on a Quidditch-regulation broomstick on July 15, 2011.
