It has become clear to me, as someone who has not read the Harry Potter books, that the series gets creepier and creepier as you get closer to the end. Perhaps our more Potter-savvy readers can confirm or deny this for me, but I have a feeling that it is getting dark in the cinematic universe of young Mr. Potter. And as someone who is giddy for darkness, I will admit that this excites me. As evidence of the darkness, allow me to present to you the first trailer for the upcoming sixth film, which shows Dumbledore cluing Harry Potter into the early days of a child named Tom Riddle. And as you will discover, young Tom becomes quite famous in the end.
