While it once seemed like an eternity away, the November 19, 2010 release date of the first part of the Harry Potter franchise's swan song is now less than two months away. As longtime Potter Heads ready their imaginary caps and gowns to finally conclude their vicarious matriculation at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, an all-new trailer has dropped for the heavily-anticipated Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. So, would it be anything less than epic:? Nope.
The Potter film franchise's evolution from bright-eyed little rugrat to brooding emo adolescent, to finally, a dark, pain-filled dramatic young adult now seems complete. The stage for the final skirmishes are set and as evidenced by his James Bond-esque SPECTRE long table conference of baddies, Voldemort is clearly readying for the most devastating of assaults. The good guys seem like they're on the receiving end of some vicious ass-kickings more often than not, but they're not going to drop their wands and walk away like wusses for one reason: Dobby's back, and he's pissed!
Don't let Harry and the gang's new Hot Topic attitude distract you from the fact that the impending climax of the entire Potter mythos is ever so close. Based on what we see, which consist of every action film convention ever imagined, stuffed into one trailer, these last two films are going to be one hell of a ride. The folks lucky enough to be near a participating theater to see the IMAX 3D conversion should also be ready to have their socks knocked-off. (Unless they're not wearing socks, in which case, their feet would just convulse loudly and violently until the usher decides to show them the door.)
What are your thoughts on the cornucopia of explosions that is the new Deathly Hallows Part 1 trailer?
