The Harry Potter twitter feed has been trickling out character posters for the second part of the final Harry Potter film for some time now, and it’s about time we round them up, now that every major character has a nice close-up out there in the world…
There’s a big blatant focus on the whole “done, it’s over, the end, no fooling, gone for good” aspect of this release, and Warner Brothers likely has their fingers crossed for an appropriately inflated return for that reason. I’ll be very intrigued to see how well Harry does this time out, and if this cultural event will translate into a small bump, or a small explosion. It will also be interesting to see how the 3D returns figure in, as fans decide whether to shell out clams to see the wizard in a dimenion he’s never inhabited before (at least, never for the entire duration of the film, and boy were those early IMAX conversions garbage for Order of the Phoenix…). Pirates 4 and Kung Fu Panda 2 saw lower-than-normal 3D returns, so this might end up being a strong indication that, at the very least, audiences are not interested in established franchises being fucked with. Transformers will also have something to say on that subject.
Let us know what you think of the images in the comments or on the boards. I have to give a big congrats to Matthew Lewis for aging into quite a badass looking MF Neville. He might have the most legitimately threatening look of any character in these posters. The series of posters itself is nothing special, but it does well enough at the very simple job of exciting me for Part II. I think the second half was well set-up to be a triumphant conclusion to the cinematic series, and I’m eager to see that promise fulfilled.
