Footage from Deathly Hallows Premieres at ShoWest, includes Voldemort confrontation

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."

We 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 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.

Sounds amazing! But it will be better if they don’t show too much scenes in the trailers! :)

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Guess That Book

Sitting on top of Mr. Weasley's overflowing in-tray was an old toaster that was hiccuping in a disconsolate way and a pair of empty leather gloves that were twiddling their thumbs. A photograph of the Weasley family stood beside the in-tray. Harry noticed
