New ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’ Poster Underwhelms

A new poster for the final installment in the Harry Potter franchise, The Deathly Hallows Part 2, was released today. So this poster shows me two things: the movie stars Daniel Radcliffe and … alright that’s all I’ve got. I can rant about the laziness of the modern movie poster, poorly designed in photoshop, and showing nothing more than an actor’s face, but I’ll save you the ten page read.

I will just show you the new poster, but below it will have a little side-by-side comparison; the poster for the first Harry Potter film, hand painted by the legendary Drew Struzan, next to the new one. Just some food for thought.

Don’t get me wrong, I look forward to what I could tell seeming to be the most epic Harry Potter movie yet. But these photoshop hack jobs are lazy and say nothing about the film. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out July 15th, 2011.

Fernando Caire is a cosplayer, an artist, an aspiring Video editor, a prop builder, a writer, and a cinephile, with a PHD in awesome. He loves cinema, both good and bad. You will catch him once a month with a group of like minded masochists who endure 8 hours of the worst movies in cinematic history...for fun. He loves video games (shows off his "team Ps3" shirt) and loves writing about them when he gets the chance (though the only ones he ever received for review have been bad). The San Diego Comic Con is what he considers to be his once a year vacation. You will find him in line for Hall H bright and early and if you are between him and any kind of free swag...God help you.
