Deathly Hallows Teaser is a Full Glass of Meh

harry_potter_and_the_deathly_hallowsMeh. Yawn. Sigh.

Perhaps this 55 second teaser trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will give Potterites chills and tingles, but it didn’t do squat for me. Frankly, this could have been spliced together from bits and  pieces of the last few Potter films and I wouldn’t know the difference, that’s how bland and vanilla this preview tastes to me. This was not a teaser. And what about timing? Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is split into two parts, the first coming in November 2010 and the second in July 2011, so was November 2009 the best time to drop some love to fans? I don’t think so, especially when the love is really nothing but a rushed attempt at creating some buzz a few days before Harry Potter and the Half-Blooded Prince hits DVD and Blu-ray.

Check out the “teaser” below and let us know what you think – especially if you are a Harry Potter fan. I’m unimpressed, but I also have no idea what I’m looking at. I’m okay with being wrong, but I need some proof.

  • Well its definitely not The Philosophers Stone is it.
    The first two(Columbus) were like disney flicks, fun n cute n stuff.

    Im not a big fan of David Yates yet Rowling and the rest seem to worship this guy, he tells a good story and i did enjoy the last film, but im also a fan of the series, i can definitely see how someone would be bored to tears with it at this point, specially the last film, it was a yawner.

    I still feel the best film was the third, Prisoner of Askaban,
    Alfonso Cuarón is genius.

    This next one will follow the book pretty close, i can already see spots in the teaser that are straight from the book.

    Heres hoping these last two films arent warm steamy turds.

  • Yes, the third film is the best of the lot. As for this “teaser”, it’s okay if you’ve read the book, otherwise it probably does seem like rubbish. I have a feeling that the Potter series has gone on for too long. I for one will be going to see the last two because I feel I HAVE to, having seen the others. But I think I’ll be glad to see the back of them then.

  • Well said Susan. Honestly, for me, anything past three movies is pushing it.

  • Agreed Susan, i’ll also add that as the series goes on and the last of the films are releasing it all feels less whimsical and fun.

    We all realize the later books become darker and have a more serious tone, especially the films but for me what made the first 3-4 films so magical now has become a bit mundane and more down to earth with some political messages thrown in, it feels less Potter.

    I enjoyed the last book but im not sure its all translating so well to film.
