IMAX's website has revealed that "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will 147 minutes (or 2 hours and 27 minutes) long. This makes it six minutes shorter than the last Harry Potter film that came out, "Half-Blood Prince."
"Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be released on November 19th.
@PotterParish i didn’t criticized WB because they shortened the DH Part1 by 10 mins but because they cut 10 mins of already shortened film.
IN Part 2 we don’t have much to watch as we only have Gringotts incident lasting 25 mins, trio’s escape from Gringotts 10 mins battle 50 mins (including trio’s arrival there and the battle which last for 30 mins as already reported by Yates) , Snap es memories 5-10 mins, Harry’s walk to death 10 mins. Harry’s conversation with Albus 10 mins.Harry’s battle with Tom 10 mins.Epilogue 15 mins.
Total 120 mins i.e 2 hrs.
Look everyone i have given max time for every possible event.
The longer the better. I’m old enough to remember when it was considered okay to make movies long enough to have an intermission. It just heightened the excitement to be able to nip out to the lobby for a snack, discuss what you’d just seen in the first half with friends and speculate about what was to come. But I guess that the mega-multiplex theatre chains wouldn’t stand for that anymore.
Oh boy…, why won’t they give as a lengthy film? LOTR was 3 hours long and got Oscars! Anyway…., as long as it is true to the book and awesome time won’t matter. Hopefully.
