Epic Deathly Hallows Trailer Now Online

Harry Potter's getting a BIG finale

If you ever worried that the final two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows would be insufficiently action-packed, put your mind at rest. The trailer for both parts of the film is now online, and it is BIG. We're pretty sure, in fact, that more killing curses and unforgiveable spells are cast during the two and a half minutes of this trailer than were thrown in the first five books. Excellent!

The seventh and eighth films of course see Harry, Ron and Hermione having left Hogwarts to go in search of a way to defeat Voldemort, but with Dumbledore gone and no one else left to oppose him, He Who Shall Not Be Named (But Who We Just Did Name Anyway) tightens his grip on the country and the school.

[SOME SPOILERS IN THIS PARAGRAPH] Regular readers of the books will of course have noticed that this trailer opens at the close (ahaha) with Harry headed to his big confrontation with Voldemort, surrounded by his Death Eaters in the Forbidden Forest. You'll also get glimpses of some of the book's most memorable scenes: the visit to Gringotts chief among them.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is out on November 19, 2010, and Part 2 is out on July 15 next year.
