Teaser Trailer: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

So, it looks like I've quit the whole "Potter-Watch" segment, despite my greatest efforts. As much as I admire the series, my interest has waned a bit. I'm still excited for the finale, but this trailer is very much a confirmation of certain fears. Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was such a brilliant film in terms of improving from where the series has been before. Still, that film doesn't hold up quite so well on repeat viewings. I still respect it as an effort of outstanding cinematography, and that's something sadly missing from the trailer for the final film. There's also a lack of what I call "finale drive". I'm about as excited by this trailer as I was by the Thor trailer. It's not a total failure, but it evokes the film being something of such. I'm still excited, but I expect an upset. I hope I'm wrong.

  1. Thank God its not a fanmade!

    I disagree with you on Part 1 not holding up in repeat viewing. And this makes me excited, although I have a problem with Voldermort yelling, I think he annoyingly screamed 5 times in the trailer.
