Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v10 - Now with Trailer Polls!

They aren't going to show any of the tower scenes. Most of us (who didn't get spoiled) was surprised and shocked during that scene in the book. Wouldn't you think they want the same for the movie?

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v10 - Now with Trailer Polls!

It is really Good, it makes you hope even more that the movie will be even better. I mean going off of what happen with OOTP. The trailer rocked, and The movie was ok.

So let's hope that in this case, the trailer blows minds, so lets hope that the movie pawns any and all other movies that come out with it.

I think I can surely say, we're all going to be going home horse from the matinee!

AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THat was possibly the BEST teaser from a Harry Potter movie yet.

And did you see the cinematography?

My mouth dropped when I saw the shot of Harry's head in the penseive...I wasn't expecting that (Notice he's wearing that read coat..bet that's him looking at the real Slughorn memory)

I like young Tom and Dumbledore was amazing.

I can't really geek out much right now since I'm at my friends house (He LOVES the trailer btw and I've been sitting here watching it for the past 10 mins )

Ok so I'll really get into it when I get home but for now YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I see why Yates added the Burrow attack scene...it's just to better explain the romances, because so many people thought the romances in HBP were not well explained. As long as it's not too corny I think he'll do it well.

I like the design of the memory vials and the Orphanage, and I liked the shot of DD putting on the ring. The part with DD in the flames was far too LOTR-ish for my tastes, though. Dumbledore seemed to be really high up as well, on top of some kind of crystal formation. Have they made the island a lot bigger?

I thought the kid was fine. He was stoic, cold and creepy which I think is what they were aiming for- not exactly what I pictured either but I think he got the job done.

I am still watching the trailer over and over before I put my actual thoughts down.
As for first impressions, I liked it. It's just that- with the child voiceover- it felt like a trailer for a horror film (i.e. the grudge, and those countless other horror flicks about children and the supernatural.) If I didn't already read HBP, I probably would not watch this film based on this trailer, thinking it more of a horror flick than an actual fantasy film about harry, etc.

Having said that- I am surprised but glad that they chose to focus on the memories. I love the tagline about- in order to know your future you have to know your past. I always felt the focus of HBP was the journeys into the pensieve and learning about voldemort. That was why initially I was dismayed when I read that Yates was turning this into a romantic comedy. I really thought we would get all that teenage angst etc. I guess they decided to go dark with the teaser which I think was the right thing to do- I just didn't expect it to be horror flick dark

Most likely with the actual trailer, we will see more of the romantic comedy side of things. I don't even think hermione was in it at all, was she? (goes to watch it again.)

I'm thinking hopefully... But as at the end of this trailer it said 'HarryPotter.co.uk' so was obviously a UK trailer. COuld this mean we have a DIFFERENT US teaser coming in 20 mins? (I'm just hopeful)...

I think that's a good thing. I liked the fact that they spliced pics of the kid with the voldemort he becomes. I think people will surmise that Voldy is the HBP. I know that's what I thought too when I read the book. I hope the viewers are just as shocked it's snape as I was.

I thought it was alright. That's not exactly an important thing which needs to be shown in a teaser, so I'm not really sure why it was included.

Another thing I realized: no Snape at all!

I told you, obviously they wouldn't show Snape killing Dumbledore in a trailer but little shots that don't betray enough to people who haven't read the book, but people who have can definitely tell what scene it's from. If that makes any sense.

I loved that! I loved all the shots; they were beautiful. Thank God for a new director of photography!

That was pretty cool, I think I am going to have to become a Voldy fan now though...

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v10 - Now with Trailer Polls!

I just have to mention how creepy it was when Voldemort's face pops up right after Tom says that he hears snakes whisper things to him.

I also loved the way the teaser ended. Those lines are so great!

Gee whiz!


Guilty as charged!! I was one of the skeptics. I was worried they were going to focus too much on the teenage angst and silly romance rather than on the darker elements of the book, which was learning about voldemort. I stand corrected ! I was surprised they showed so much of that orphanage scene. It was like we were already watching the movie! They even included the wardrobe on fire. However, it definitely got the job done in establishing the tone and themes of the film.

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v10 - Now with Trailer Polls!

I must say that the trailer did make me have a feeling that Yates finally did something right for once and gives me hope that HBP would be fantastic!......I agree that the trailer gives a refreshing dark creepy mood than the others had and that's a good thing!...Young Tom definetly looks pretty good and captures the young Voldemort in training pretty well!!.....And Dumbledore finally looks like how Dumbledore should be lol....And the new burrow scene definetly looks WAY different than i imagined....It looks really dark and scary which again is a plus......I'm really happy how everything looks so far and i hope the film is as great as it looks in the trailer!......And Harry and Dumbledore speaking at the end.......Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't have said that better myself. The memories, IMO, are the most important part. We're preparing Harry for book seven, his fight, his struggles... that's the base on HBP, is the memories.

I bet Kloves was crying when he saw it, because of the lack of his Power Ranger.

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v10 - Now with Trailer Polls!

Yeah, I am happy they used wandless magic for the wardrobe scene. It is awesome. Shows the power of Dumbledore.

And isn't it weird that we didn't see any bit of Dumbledore or Harry watching the scene?
