A second TV spot for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” as well as a new poster, has hit the web, and it focuses on the two things we are most excited for in the final installment of the “Potter” franchise: the final battle and Severus Snape. For those of you not keeping track, this has been a repeated effort on the part of Warner Bros. to give the fans what they are most interested in, first exhibited in the second full-length “Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ trailer.
So what we get in this minute-long TV spot is a very concise look at what we are most excited about in the last “Potter” film, something we are far from complaining about.
Most of this video is footage we’ve seen before, from Voldemort’s walk through a pile of dead bodies to Harry’s adventure through Gringotts, but it’s all the footage from the most recent trailer that got us the most excited. While the scene between Snape and Lily was scrapped for this tight look at the major plot points in the upcoming movie, there still are several great shots of Snape, including one where he is walking through the halls of Hogwarts and the one where BIG BIG BIG SPOILER TURN AWAY NOW! Voldemort kills him.
But since we’re here to hunt for all the new footage, we do love the shot of Snape disapparating out of the Great Hall about half way through the teaser. Love or hate David Yates, he definitely knows how to bring together some beautiful cinematography.
The other new footage in the trailer consists of shots we haven’t seen from the final battle yet. From some great aerial shots of the epic showdown between good and evil going on in the Hogwarts courtyard to one of Hogwarts’ many bridges being demolished, it looks like there is plenty of great action for us to look forward to. And did we mention how much we love that scene at the end where everyone is hurling spells at Hogwarts? Because that might be our favorite shot in the other franchise.
Oh, and that new poster? It’s right here.
