Purported First "Deathly Hallows" Poster Fake Says WB

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!
Makes me sad :( Gets me all hyped up for the DH madness and then drops the FAKE poster :(
its a pretty good darn poster
i still LOVE IT
can’t wait for HBP and DH :)
@roonwit, thanks for the info.
So now do you people agree with my point on comment page 5?
does anyone have any guesses as to what the ghost-like figure around the doe is? perhaps a silhoette of severes snape? its a really good poster! even the forest background gave me chills!
redwall_hp: Yes and no. It seems that the original creator was clear that it is fanart, but that doesn’t mean that someone else hasn’t taken it and is trying to pass it off as a real poster. But it might also be “chinese whispers”, by which I mean that the poster could have been passed from one person to another, with the accompanying context eventually lost so that somewhere down the chain someone thinks the poster was originally from Warner Bros.
fake or not, it was damn good.
I was thinking the silhoette thing was Voldemort in the Kings Cross chapter. Kinda looks like the outline of the thing described that LV will become if he doesnt repent. ??
This image is, indeed, in our TLC FanArt Gallery, uploaded way back in March. BUT the important thing to remember is that all the search engines troll the internet for keywords to add info and images to their database. Once one of them nabs a “DH poster” and includes it in that keyword search, ANYONE can find it and do whathaveyou with it. I doubt that the fanartist, Enyafreak, ever intended it to take off like this. OR for anyone to mistake it as the genuine article.
wow, for a fake its pretty good. The One Fate …etc etc is pretty lame alright but the rest is impressive.
Lets see HBP before we start worrying about DH though :-)
Words= “One fate, one hero.” What the?
Agreeing with most that the caption is a little skeptical, but the poster and the patronus is brilliant! Really great fake-poster. :-)
that poster is probably better than something WB could come up with, it’s really good. =] But the “One way, One fate, One hero” part is a little overdramatic……
gees… already passed on waiting for the 6 one?
Cool looking poster, even if it is fake!
if I were WB I would pay that person and use it…looks darn good to me!
