Bah Hum, the fake poster elves are hard at work this season it would seem. Scores of owls arrived today bearing news that this was the first purported poster for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film, but thanks to WB we can confirm that this is fake!

Thanks to WB and all who emailed!

That’s pretty amazing. Is that Spinners’ End along the top?

why would we have a DH poster before we even get an HBP poster?
it’s still a really really really nice poster. I love it actually and I would have believed it was WB’s if, you know… it made sense time wise lol.

impressive. which is a shame bc the doe would have been a good symbol to have pulled out for the poster, but I doubt WB will copy the idea now.

a little close to the OOTP teaser poster, but still damn good… i would have made it black and white rather than black and blue just to illustrate some difference.

I dont really like it, from a designers point of view, the text is all wrong, there are two forests, whats with the one at the top? and the hp logo is wrong.

I am not convinced of the quality of the doe. It is too fuzzy and I am not sure what the cloud of light around it is supposed to be (if anything). I also don’t think the “one way – one fate – one hero” really fits either the illustration or movie. In particular there isn’t “one fate” for Harry, because it is his choices (and those of others) that determine what happens, and there isn’t “one hero” because although there is a main hero, a whole load of characters are also heroes, such as Ron, Hermione and Neville (and listing everyone would make this post far too long).
One final thing, the poster would surely be for “Deathly Hallows part one” or “Deathly Hallows part two”.

Thats one of the most beautiful fan made poster I’ve seen! The words dont suit the image though. It should say:

One Fan
One Poster
One Fake

Yes, the poster’s a fake. Many of have said this already, but wb’s official one for HBP is not out yet. It is weird though, isn’t it, that all the trailers for HBP and a bunch of photos are out, but the posters are not, since they only come out a couple months from the release date.

If you looked around that site, you’d find a pretty good HBP fake poster as well: http://outnow.ch/Movies/2009/HarryPotter6/Posters/012266/
Probably by the same guy too; it has the same wrong tone in the phrase, and some things are off just so, in that one too. Also, both posters have a “mini” fake poster to their left as well. Someone’s gone to great lengths for this haven’t they?
