In my effort to bring readers all the details from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies, I had to post about the the newest television spot for the final two films. The spot is only advertising the first film dropping November 19th. But get excited, the short trailer shows plenty of new footage that fans have not seen before. Check out the TV spot after the jump.


I personally think this is the best trailer pieced together yet. Even though it's just a television spot and not a full length trailer, I think the combination of the images with Mad Eye Moody's narration instills the overwhelming feeling of fear for what is to come for Harry and his supporters.

Moody's low, growling voice warns, "They are coming, you can't fight this war on your own, he is too strong."

That dialogue sent shivers up my spine knowing what is ahead for Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The fight to defeat Voldemort is not for the fainthearted. This trailer perfectly encapsulates that notion. 

While the television spot is only advertising the first movie, the footage shown is from both films. Watching closely you can see Ron, Harry, and Hermione running for their lives trying to escape the cursed fire, Fiendfyre, set off in the Room of Requirement by Crabbe (see the title image). This part takes place at the story's final battle scene, Hogwarts. So, this is obviously content from the second movie. It was also nice to get up close and personal with Voldemort's snake Nagini.

My favorite image from the spot has to be Albus Dumbledore in a ghost-form providing security for 12 Grimnauld Place. Watching the vague screaming face of Dumbledore rushing toward visitors who enter the house was something that floated my boat like Wingardium Leviosa.

Lastly, I wanted to give readers a chance to check out all the released stills for the movies which can be viewed at the Deathly Hallows page at  Some of the images are pulled directly from the trailers, but they are all worth checking out if you are an avid Potter fan. Production stills of Gregorovitch, the blind dragon escaping Grigotts, the broken mirror shard, and Hagrid's motorbike can been seen in the gallery. Thanks to the Movie Mash reader Derek for the tip. The other two television spots for the Deathly Hallows can be seen here and here.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 hits theaters Novemeber 19th, 2010, and Part 2 will finish up the series July 15th, 2011.
