San Diego Comic Con: The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Panel

Posted on 26 July 2010 by Joey DC

Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) stopped by at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 24, 2010 in order to share footage for the upcoming “Deathly Hallows” movies, coming to theaters on November 19, 2010 and on July 15, 2011. “These last two films have really been what we’re working up to,” he said before the footage in form of an extended trailer for the two part finale of the Harry Potter franchise started to play.

It opened with a mirror shard falling to the ground following by a profiled shot of Harry. Voice-over during the shots is Voldemort speaking about the people who have died and those who have suffered as a result of Harry. During the speech, shots of Dumbledore and other. The voice-over closes with Voldemort saying that he will “punish every last man, woman and child that tries to conceal you from me.”

It switches to the familar scene in the forest with Voldemort and all of the Death Eaters when Harry arrives… and Voldemort’s now famous line – “Harry Potter. The boy who live, come to die…” Then you see a bit of the wand duel in the forest. The scene then shifts to fast cuts that include dragons, the trip through Gringotts… and what looked like several Harry Potters standing with each other and various scenes of the epic final battle.

Next is a voice over from property newcomer Bill Nighy playing new Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour who promises his loyals that “Your Ministry remains strong!”

Flash to a scene in a diner with the famous three – Harry, Hermione and Ron – discussing their next moves when they draw wands to defend themselves against an attack from a pair of other diner patrons.

Next, a scene at a long table with the Death Eaters sitting around it and Voldemort sitting at the head. Snape is there, giving Voldemort details of the whereabouts of Harry. Voldemort then reminds the group that he ‘must be the one to kill Harry Potter.’

Fast cuts lead to the famous three, looking haggard and in hiding. Ron is yelling at Harry. Ron has been listening to the radio every night to make sure he doesn’t hear that any of his family has died in the war. Harry barks back “Don’t you think I’ve been listening too!’ Ron nastily reminds Harry that his family is already dead and the two begin to fight.

More fast action cuts which included a voice over about the demise of Minster of Magic. Then wand play with Bellatrix LeStrange… more fighting in the woods… in the sky on brooms and a shot of Harry’s end fight with Voldemort.

3D Explosion Continues with Clash of the Titans and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Posted on 26 January 2010 by Andrew


In the wake of Avatar’s dominance at the box office (it just passed Titanic for #1 all time worldwide) studios are looking to convert their recent projects into 3D.  Heat Vision reports that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2 will be converted into 3D.  Warner Bros other film, Clash of the Titans, has already been undergoing the 3D conversion process as well. Unlike Avatar, these movies weren’t filmed with a 3D camera, so the studio has to convert them into 3D in post production.  The reported cost for this conversion is about $5 million, a small fee in the wake of $2 to $3 added to every ticket for 3D movies.

2010 is already looking to be one of the biggest years for 3D ever.  Already there is around 15 3D movies slated for this year.  Most of them are animated films, such as Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon, but other live action films, like Alice in Wonderland, are being converted to 3D as well.  The 3D craze has been building for years now as the process has advanced into various forms (Imax 3D, RealD) and studios can now charge more money for their 3D films.  It was announced a few months ago that blu-ray and HD televisions will be able to play 3D films by this upcoming summer.  Also, a 3D television network for cable is being developed.

Whether you like 3D or not it will be the future of cinema this decade.  Studios are always looking for new ways to get people back in the theatre, and with the cost of 3D tickets rising you can expect more films to undergo this process.  I for one enjoy the 3D experience because it is something I can’t get at home, and with movies like Avatar it enhances the visual experience.  The 3D movies of the 70’s were more of a gimmick, with things purposefully flying at you in the screen.  Now instead, 3D adds that extra element that totally  immerses the viewer into the film.
