Footage from Deathly Hallows Premieres at ShoWest, includes Voldemort confrontation


Mar 19, 2010

Posted by Melissa Anelli

Multiple reports have surfaced tonight that Warner Bros. scored a big hit with trade show attendees by showing unfinished scenes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at this year’s ShoWest, an important movie industry exhibition.


One report notes that footage showed Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), bloodied from battle and “visibly terrified,” walking into the woods to meet Voldemort, who taunts him with, “The boy who lived, come to die.”

saw little bits of everything, from the seven Harry Potters escaping
from the Dursleys house (totally surreal) to the attack at Bill and
Fleur’s wedding to the escape from Gringotts on the pale dragon and
even Hogwarts on fire. With unfinished effects it’s hard to really say
how it all looks, though some of the most effective moments were the
simplest — Ron and Harry’s fight in the tent, Harry visiting his
parents’ graves, running away from the Snatchers in the woods, Harry
defiantly telling Voldemort that he stays alive “because I have
something worth fighting for.”

Another notes:

Other bits of footage were Harry, Ron and Hermione in the forest
fighting as Ron tells Harry that since he already lost his family his
pain isn’t as important (or something like that). We also saw tons of
pre-viz mixed in with shot footage like Harry flying with Hagrid and
Voldemort chasing him with other Death Eaters. I also saw a scene of
all the Harry’s from the beginning of the book. Other bits were the
kids in London walking around, Bill Nighy as Rufus Scrimgeour, Harry
and Ginny kissing, and so much more. Some of the footage looked like
done and some was very rough.

The only thing I knew for certain after
watching the footage was the movie is going to be amazing and I am so
happy the last book is in two parts.

The trailer ended with the info of when the movies are getting released and how they’re both in 3D. Which is awesome.

FirstShowing also notes that the Quidditch area burns down. More as it comes!

I so can not wait!!!! :):):):):)Avatar Imagejoelface says: OMFG. Gonna be sooooooooo awesome!!!!!Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!Avatar Imagejessh324 says: WOW!!!

I shut my eyes and plug my ears. I don't want to know [=Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Omg! Awesome! This makes me so excited! Avatar ImagelittleL says: Cool, despite my disappointment with HBP, I can't help but get excited again... (As long as WB knows it's only out of love for Jo and the books that I keep loyal to the films) But lets hope the "Harry and Ginny kissing" is an improvement to the last pathetic attempt of it in HBP. Can't wait to see the seven Potters scene!Avatar Imagekatherine102678 says: Sounds totally awesome. I can't wait for November to get here!Avatar Imagelurking_llama says: This sounds fantastic, I can't wait until the trailers start being released.Avatar ImageHarryJamesPotterROCKS says: I WANNA SEE IT!!!!!!!Avatar ImageLoveTomRiddle says: YAY!

I am quite confused about that.Avatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: i wish i could scream out loud right now!! (but seeing as it is 6am here and the homes are very close i would probably wake a number of people) but AHHHHHHHHHHH i cannot wait!! and in 3-D is just so cool, i saw Alice in Wonderland in 3-D and i can't believe that i could have ever watched movies in anything else :)Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Oh wow, I got the shivers reading the forest bit. This got me excited but I'm going to try my hardest to avoid clips and teasers and reviews. For HBP I think I had basically seen half the film before going to the cinema. It's nearing the end now and I want to be surprised. Avatar ImageHarryJamesPotterROCKS says: I squealed so loudly when I heard this .... Then I started screaming. I wish I had been there. :( WB should really release those clips soon for those die-hard HP fans that CANNOT wait for the films to come out! They probably will. I don't think they're that mean.Avatar ImageNatalie says: Yeaaaaahhhh!!! The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows frenzy begins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I.can'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need another trailer like NOW!!!Avatar ImageScarStruck says: OOOOOOOOOOOOH MY FREAAAAAAAAAAAAAKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! It sounds amazing!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageHermione_Granger1987 says: I can't wait!!! I want to see some new footage!!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: OH MY EFFING GOSHHHHH! It looks like they're doing justice to my FAVORITE book! *squee* ahhhhh :) Ron and Harry fighting, The Forest scene, Harry and Ginny kissing... oh my goodness they have everything! Yay!Avatar Imagedecarus says: I have always liked the line at the end of OotP where Harry says that they have something worth fighting for. I love the idea that they are going to relive that line in DH. This sounds great though i really want to see it. Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Sounds amazing! But it will be better if they don't show too much scenes in the trailers! :)Avatar ImagePrincess Leia says: I was excited about the ABC Family footage... now I am just so jealous of this!Avatar ImageAll Was Well says: Why can't we see it?!Avatar Imageparryotter687 says: WOWWWWW's damn freaking nice with all DH Owls colliding at the same moment, and I wish the filmmakers hold back something this time ... something to surprise is the first time we see the movie ... everything sounds like MERLIN'S BEARD!!! CAN'T WAIT BUT STILL LOVING TO WAIT SINCE THIS CANNOT END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageclever-ravenclaw says: this year needs to go a tad bit faster so i can watch the movie!Avatar Imagepotterforpresident says: Oh my Godric Gryffindor, I can feel it. DH is going to be THE best, most epic Harry Potter film (if not film, period) ever.Avatar ImageBookworm Jen says: Wow, I got chills just reading about it! I'm simultaneously so excited to see the final films and sad that's it's ending so soon!Avatar Imagenellythemarrow says: This sounds FANTASTIC!!! It sounds like Ron and Harry's fight is going to be great stuff; I'd been worried about that scene but maybe I needn't have! And wow, if the meaty scenes are done well then I'll be reconciled to the fact that it's 3D, and it seems they will be. I can't wait!Avatar ImageLittleMizzBunny says: OMFG. -dies- I. Need. To. See. Footage. NOW. D: I've been wondering when we'd hear news on clips/scenes.. omg. I'm so damn excited for this. Near tears right now, knowing we might be seeing these scenes sometimes soon.. actual scenes from the movie, besides that trailer we saw. The description about the Voldy confrontation sent chills up my spine since that is my favorite chapter, and.. I'm going to be bawling so hard. XD The Quidditch Pitch burning down is so shocking.. can't wait to see that either. Any clips are good! Avatar ImageDrome says: I'm so excited!! I can't wait! :oAvatar Imagenetsrikb says: jfhgdfkahgjkf! this is insane! :PAvatar ImageethanHP says: It all sounds amazing! The only part I hope it's not true is this one: "Ron tells Harry that since he already lost his family his pain isn’t as important". That would be such a stupid thing to say. Harry's pain is as important as any other person, if someone dies he would suffer as much as the rest (as it actually happens), the Weasly family is like his own family to him.Avatar ImageLucida says: Soo excited! XDAvatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: oh my gods!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageGinnyPotter811 says: So lucky! I wish we could all see this, it sounds amazing!!!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: As I read the description of this footage I could truly sense my heart beating faster and faster, for such was the excitement that pierced through me! I cannot wait for Warner Brothers to release to the general public additional footage from the movie. I wish that I had been attending the exhibition so that I could have seen it!Avatar ImageTamyris says: OH MY GOD!! I can´t believe it!! Lucky bastards! I wanna see it so much!! I wanna see it now!! Oh my God! My heart is pounding and my chest can´t contain it!Harry and Ginny kissing(I hope it´s better and much hotter than the ridiculous HBP)! Ron and Harry fighting!! Harry vs Voldemort!! Avatar Imagetaylor819 says: Wow!!Avatar ImageKennedyJames says: Oh my God. Oh my God this sounds so freakin' amazing. Like. I can NOT wait for this to come out like....BDKJFHSLKJFH....I honestly can't wait.Avatar ImageKennedyJames says: Also @EthanHP Ron says something along the same lines in the Book sooooooooo it's unfortunate that he even said a thing like that to Harry, but I am still happy that they put it in there to actually show how Nasty Ron got with that Horcrux Avatar Imagejaiboi2 says: david yates has one final movie to reprieve himself. im not saying half blood prince was bad but the ending could have been spellbinding the shot of dumbledore conjuring the fire again was to short as was the final battle in order of the phoenix. i only hope that the final battle out does the lord of the rings final battle. the final part must be epic and spectacular and last for at least an hour. this final battle is what fans have been waiting for and dont want to be dissapointed. i just wonder if there gonna bring out an extended dvd of order of the phoenix where you get to see bellatrix and sirius duel coz i know they filmed those sequences and also in half blood prince where dumbledore says to harry im not worried im with you was also cut from the movie. at least mike newall tried to keep as much as he could in from goblet of fire and the final duel was amazing with harry and voldemort, but david yates seems to skate over the action parts with his versions of harry potter, even the dueling at the burrow which of course was not in the book was a little under done,. we should have seen remus and tonks and mr weasly blocking curses and firing them. i just hope that we get to see alot more dueling and battling and its not underdone in deathly hallows or i wont be buying the dvdAvatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: im so excited for thisAvatar ImageFilmGirl27 says: Yay! Just joined up because of this! :D My inner little girl is escaping....escaped! OMG!!! They have included A LOT! Ron vs Harry! W00T! I thought they would leave that out, but I'm so glad to be proved wrong! :) The Voldy confrontation sounds AMAZING! "The Boy who Lived, come to die" that is one awesome line! I also like that Harry is "bloodied", it will add to the "dead" effect when he is pretending. And I am probably going to cry. :DAvatar Imagehallows_or_horcruxes says: ggggggaaaaahhhhhh soooo goooooooood i expected the next DH bits to be stills or something small but this, oh man, this is crazy!! deep down i hope that this is the filmmakers gift to us for taking all the silly plot holes and still paying to see them another five billion timesAvatar ImageLittleMizzBunny says: Gah. Just have to comment again. Didn't notice the Ron vs. Harry bit the first time. Holy.. with them saying this movie's gonna be amazing, I really think it will... I'm so excited. We need a trailer soon. XD Or at least stills!Avatar ImageAnderja says: I can not wait for this movie. Looking forward to the "7" Harry's and the final scene at Hogwarts.....Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: omg,omg,OMG,i can't stop squeeing.these films will be amazingly epic,but it scares me how close the end is :(Avatar ImageFilmGirl27 says: @Anderja "final scene at Hogwarts" Please don't say that! :O I'm really going to cry at that, too... Wonder what the Hermione torture scene will be like? I hope they don't show her actually being tortured, just Ron screaming and Harry calling for help. That scene always makes my heart pound when I read the book. Scary stuff.Avatar Imagedecarus says: Did someone say they weren't going to buy the dvd? You are commenting on a Harry Potter site. You'll buy the dvd. Avatar ImageMatea says: probably we will see that one too in few weeks time. amazing!Avatar ImageLadyofDarkness says: YAY!! I am SO excited!! I am getting chills!! I LOVE YOU LORD VOLDEMORT!! I can't wait to see him on the big screen... in 3D!!! OMG! *faints*Avatar ImageLibby says: I really hope that when Ron comes back they have him save Harry like a true hero.. The films seem to make Ron into more of a wimpy jerk than he needs to be.. I just hope they do a damn good job redeeming him. :) Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There's my awesomely descriptive post.Avatar Imagenwrosey says: aaaaawwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeessssssssssoooooooommmmmmmeeeeeeeeeAvatar Imagenwrosey says: i hope bellatrix has a large part in the movie! She's my favorite character!Avatar Imagegingerr_kat says: I don't think I'd want to watch any bits of the movie before I see it in theaters. It would be better to see it all together for the first time and have it be a surprise. it sounds like it's gonna be really good though.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: I want to see it!Avatar Imagefan.numero1 says: OOOOMMYYF****GOODNESS!! II AM SO EXCITEDD! Avatar ImageI Heart Harry Potter says: This is TOO awesome to be true!! Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: OMG!!!!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That sounds really great! I cannot wait till it actually comes out! It will be just plain spectacular!

That sounds AMAZING!!!!!!Avatar Imagepotterfan4lyfe says: OH MY GOSHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was screaming YES!!!! when it said Harry and Ginny kissing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is going to be AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I have to watch it in 3D especially Part 2 with the dragon at Gringotts and curses flying everywhere =] CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!Avatar Imagesueml says: If you want to read more articles on this - go to Twitter and type "ShoWest Harry Potter" into the search bar. Loads of links to articles, etc. come up. I enjoy reading as much as I can, as there's been so little news lately.Avatar Imagehpikjdjg says: This all sounds incredible! I'm so excited for DH! I'm always a little let down with the Potter movies and I'm really hoping I won't be this time. DH HAS TO BE BRILLIANT! And Yates, please don't disappoint me with the Ron/Hermione kiss like you did the Harry/Ginny kiss in HBP!Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: ugg that freaks kisses harry again? Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: ugg that freaks kisses harry again? Avatar ImageStellar Sound says: This sounds SO AWESOME. Can't wait to see it, specially the seven potters scene.Avatar ImageWillowEve says: I definitely did a little dance in my seat as I read this!Avatar ImageRotfangconspiracy117 says: Contain myself is what I cannot do! Excited is what I am! OMIMERLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagemoonyschick says: This sounds amazing! I'm seriously freaking out. I would love to see this footage, only because we've gotten hardly anything so far, and I want to see something so bad. But they probably won't release it, and if they do, it won't be for awhile. They'll put it out in October, when everyone is sick of all the clips and teasers. I just hope I'm wrong. Avatar ImageWizardRocker1 says: Yikes! This sounds totally awesome! Can't wait for BOTH movies!Avatar Imagehallowman says: y hasnt the footage been leaked yet? Avatar Imagehpfangirl97 says: !!!!i wanna see it!!!!!!!! I CANNOT WAIT TILL november TO SEE THE HP7!!!!!!! :D !!!!!!Avatar Imageleigia says: *sighs* Some people get all of the luck to view tidbits from the movie. Is it fall yet?Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: awesome. i hope they do not come out with 500 million trailers like they did for HBP. and there is something that makes no sense to me in this, "Hogwarts on fire". i dont think youd be able to burn hogwarts. and they burn the quidditch pitch? why?.. i wonder if hagrids hut will be stepped on by a giant, that would be sad but cool. Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: SQUEE!!! Oh I can't wait! I'm so glad they split it up. I'm excited to see the seven Potters scene and where the split will be. Avatar Imagenox avis says: OMG!!!!! So awesome!!! cant wait!!! Avatar Imagevandy says: oh my god!! can't believe the films are gonna come to an end... Looks like the film's gonna be awesome... But one thing's for sure...No matter how much they screw up the movie I'm gonna love it.. I'm eagerly waiting for Snape's memory scenes ... Go DH!Avatar ImageLittle Light says: *Faints*Avatar Imagejaiboi2 says: dont get your hopes up on these last two movies guys that way you wont be dissapointed if they dont live up to your expectations. alot of people were geared up for half blood prince and many were let down because of the huge cuts that were made to the final film. i wasnt let down coz i went to the cinema with an open mind knowing what cuts were being made and knowing that the book and movie are two different things and that the movie wouldnt be exactly like the book. as for the final 2 movie yeah there have been things added like the burning of the quiditch stadium but i think this will add to the action and drama of it all. im not opposed at all to these additions and its sounding like they are finally staying pretty faithful to the book this time. if they get this right it could beat lord of the rings for the most epic finale of all time. fingers crossed eh.lolAvatar ImageSnapeS says: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hope this would be up soon!Avatar Imagekandlesrule says: I can't wait for this movie... It's going to be awesome!!Avatar ImageFifi says: I AM NOT LOOKING AT THOSE SPOILERS! I AM NOT! I AM NOT!Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: So can i see all of this already??Avatar Imageaval says: oh my god, I saw most of this on youtube-looks INCREDIBLE! I honestly can't wait!!!Avatar Imagecharliepotter says: I'm very surprised they showed so much footage. I'd rather wait to see it in the theatre for the first time.Avatar ImageMadam Snape says: OMG!!! That's totally AWESOME! I just can't wait any longer!!! I'm dying to see all these wonderful scenes!!! Oh my...Avatar ImageFresca says: I can hardly wait to see the fianl movies. They are going to be awesome, and am I glad they are going to do two movies and not cut the plot to pieces! Avatar Imagecghambright says: This film will be AMAZING!!! Reading this gave me chills! I'm so jealous that they got to see all that footage!!! Deathly Hallows will be AMAZING!! ONLY 8 MONTHS TO GO!!!!!Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Must ... not ... read ... spoilers ...Avatar ImageToNkS_rip says: AAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant w8 4 that!!!! y are u doing this to me?????Avatar Imagealicia00 says: intreaging Avatar Imagedecarus says: If you have seen most of this on youtube how about you give us a link.Avatar ImageSmitch says: Whaaa I thought we'd get a peek at them.
