Bah Hum, the fake poster elves are hard at work this season it would seem. Scores of owls arrived today bearing news that this was the first purported poster for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film, but thanks to WB we can confirm that this is fake!

Thanks to WB and all who emailed!

I think it’s actually a pretty nice fake (far better than its predecessors).

Speaking as another designer, I think the text at the top could use some work but I see nothing wrong with the logo itself, except perhaps the large Photoshop lens flair in the center.

This is a great poster! All it needs is Hermione hitting the doe over the head with a rolled up newspaper….

That fake was actually pretty good! No wonder people thought it was real.

We don’t even have a poster for HBP, so why would we have one for Deathly Hallows?

lol We don’t even have a HBP poster yet.

That fake poster is pretty, though. They should use it. Honestly, I like the fake ones better than the real ones half the time. At least, I like them as teaser posters.

i agree wit Pomona, its is a very well done visual and although the concept of the slogan is credible, i think i could be much improved.

I wouldn’t expect it to be real with the movie(s) so far away and all, but I really do like the poster. Kudos to whoever made it.

The poster was good enough to trick some people. I thought it was really well done, however, the patronus is suppose to be a stag not a doe. Plus the quote didn’t seem to fit. ‘A’ for effort.

A silver doe with a bubble-head charm – LOL! Maybe she was planning on leaping into the pond to retrieve the sword.

Harry would have cringed at the “One fate, one hero” blather.

The potion hissed loudly like a boiling kettle and frothed madly. A second later, it had turned a sick sort of yellow.[br]"Urgh -- essence of Millicent Bulstrode," said Ron, eyeing it with loathing. "Bet it tastes disgusting."
