These are just gorgeous. It’s amazing when the art of film advertising seeks to design something that will carry the tone of the film correctly while actually aiming for a bit of artistic merit. These new character posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 may be simple, and the name may be unusually long, but the effect is strong.
The latest film (and beginning of the end) boasts the usual suspects all returning with the addition of Bill Nighy to what amounts to a roster of the best British actors in the business. Expect even more promotional materials, because after the Summer release of the trailer, Deathly Hallows will probably inundate fans with even more reasons to head to opening night in November. As if people needed more reasons.
Including Fenrir Greyback in the marketing is also an interesting move that might signal a deeper involvement in the coming movies after being almost completely left out of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
You know they’re grown up because of the stubble. What do you think?
