The trailer for one of the most anticipated films of the summer — oh, who am I kidding? the year — has arrived. I’m referring to the moody indie starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman about… ha! Just messing with you. Obviously I’m talking about the final Harry Potter installment.
Take a look! (And consider yourself warned: if you haven’t read the book, this preview will spoil at least one character death… so if you don’t want to know, you best turn away now and resist pressing play.)
Fans who felt Part 1 might have been a tad too slow-moving for their tastes will probably not have that same gripe this time around, huh? As Harry himself (Daniel Radcliffe) said in EW‘s Summer Movie Preview cover story, “The new film is just a relentless action movie. It Just. Does. Not. Stop.”
The clips that got me the most excited were of the dragon in Gringotts and the few glimpses of Snape. I don’t even want to begin to think about how emotional I’m going to be when the final credits roll on Part 2 and everything is OVER. So for now I’ll choose to bask in the hype for the next two months and just let myself get swept up in Pottermania one last time. Sigh.
What did you think of the trailer? What were your favorite parts?
