Remember how excited we were two days ago when that new story-oriented "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" featurette was released? Well, so do we, and it looks like Warner Bros. doesn't want us to forget that enthusiasm any time soon. The Los Angeles Times's Hero Complex blog got their hands on a new clip from the film that is an extension of the Ron and Harry showdown outside the Burrow that we saw in Tuesday's featurette.
All the "Harry Potter" actors have said that they really put their everything into these final two films, and this clip totally shows it. Rupert Grint hasn't always had a chance to shine in the "Potter" films like his co-stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Tom Felton have, but judging by this clip it looks like "Part 1" gives him the opportunity. The way Ron tries to talk down Harry from running off to destroy Voldemort's Horcux's in the middle of the night is some of the best acting we've seen from Grint to date.
And oh, that Dan Radcliffe, how he gets us every time! Harry is in for quite a depressing journey in "Part 1," and I don't think there's a doubt in any "Potter" fan's mind that he would not have been able to accomplish what he eventually accomplishes if it weren't for Ron and Hermione (and, well, everyone else). But there are a lot of fatalities along the way, and in the line, "No one else is going to die. Not for me," Radcliffe really gets across the conflict Harry faces in this flick.
The larger question that arises from this clip, though, is how can we possibly wait another 13 days and 12 hours (midnight showing, baby!) for "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" to hit theaters?
Did this clip get you as excited for the film as we are, or are you at the limits for your enthusiasm already? Tell us in the comments!
