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!

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.

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!

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.
