The new batch of posters includes Dobby and Bellatrix Lestrange character banners and an extra-long bus wrap, all three of which add to the slowly mounting anticipation for the November 19 release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.” In addition to the fresh crop of images, Warner Bros. will be unveiling a never-before-seen sneak peek at the film at the 2010 Scream Awards, which air October 19 on Spike. And we’re sure a whole mess of “Potter” TV spots, talk show appearances and what not will ensue. But until then, you can feast your eyes on the three posters after the jump.
The Dobby poster is in the same vein as the up-close character banners that we loved so much the first time around. Of the three new posters, this one is hands down our favorite, because it both shows the vulnerability Dobby has in “Part 1” and highlights him as being on the story’s main characters (finally!). Just look at those eyes!
Similarly, the Bellatrix image calls to mind these character posters. Considering Ms. Lestrange is easily one of our favorite villains in the films, we’re glad she’s also being highlighted so much.
Last but not least, there’s the epic bus poster for “Part 1” (click on the image below for a larger, easier-to-see version). The idea is pretty simple: It takes the escape from 4 Privet Drive (during which most of the good guys are disguised as Mr. Potter) and turns it into the basic good versus evil fight that’s underlined the entire series. It’s not the grittiest or darkest of the “Potter” posters by a long shot, but it’s cool nonetheless.
