If you haven’t been paying attention to the latest tagline for the latest Harry Potter film, here’s the scoop: IT ALL ENDS 7.15
The past few weeks have seen an upsurge in promotional material for the final installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, including banners for characters who had never before been showcased individually in promotions (Prof. McGonagall, Griphook the Goblin and the Weasley twins Fred & George, to be specific). Now, Entertainment Weekly has released an exclusive image from Warner Bros., and it seems to capture the mood of the second film with just one shot.
The image shows a battle-scarred Harry, Ron and Hermione in the forefront, with Hogwarts and fellow fighters in the Final Battle in the background. No matter what you may have thought of the previous seven films, this much seems to be true: the battle at Hogwarts will be the toughest fight of them all, for a trio of friends who have weathered every type of battle imaginable in their young 17 years.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 will be released in theaters on July 15. Tickets sales began nationwide last week; check your local listings for details.
