Fortunately, Warner Bros. has been pumping us full of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” posters to make sure that we’ll at least be prepared. A whole slew of awesome character posters hit the web last week, and now we are getting our first looks at some new banners and full posters for the flick that highlight its cinematic action. Hello, Battle of Hogwarts and escape from Gringotts!
These new posters definitely call back to some of what we saw for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’s” marketing campaign, but we’re glad that WB is making sure audiences know that they have a big movie to look forward to once July 15 rolls around.
The first new poster comes at us from Entertainment Weekly, and is pretty much an amalgamation of everything we’ve seen so far. Harry stands in the foreground with Ron and Hermione flanking him, and Hogwarts regulars like Neville Longbottom, Ginny Weasley and the rest of the Weasley bunch lurk in the background. This is all set around the rubble surrounding the ruins of Hogwarts, with the now-familiar tagline “It all ends” being the only textual reference as to what the movie actually is.
Then we get two new action-packed banners, the first showing Harry, Ron and Hermione riding the dragon as it busts out of Gringotts. We’ve seen plenty of versions of this scene before in trailers, but we like the whole mid-escape element in this poster. It seems like WB is really proud of how awesome that dragon turned out.
And lastly, there’s a good vs. evil banner very similar to the one we saw from “Part 1” where Harry and his friends are fighting Voldemort and his Death Eaters during their escape from Privet Drive. Here, Harry, Ron, Hermione and company shoot wands against Voldemort, Bellatrix and the rest of the Death Eaters, with an emphasis on both sides’ desperation. We also love the visual shoutout on Voldemort’s side to the cover of the US edition of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” and the destroyed Hogwarts on Harry’s side.
