Wow! Finally we get to see Dumbledore’s black hand. Their faces look so synthetic, why do they always have to mess of up? Ron looks excellent!

I like them! Snape looks so intense and angry. I don’t think he’s ever had his own poster before, so that’s cool. He is the title character after all. Draco is looking good too and Hermione.

Love the posters, really good job. The faces however … I don’t even have to go into it I guess. Seconding everyone else who has already pointed out that … they look like wax dolls. Urgh.

I love how Snape’s is the only face that’s half hidden in shadow. Great poster.

I think i like Draco’s best. He does look evil, but i think he looks more sick and determined, and for that reason i think his is the most true to the character… based on what i’ve seen. I’m really excited for the movie!

Oh, also, Dumbledore has a beard that can finally be tucked into his belt. That makes me happy. :) I still don’t think his wand looks like the Elder Wand. I wonder if they’ll keep the same model for DH?

It doesn’t look like anything I would imagine from an HP book, but they still look amazing XD

Why are so many complaining about photoshop? I don’t think they are supposed to look like photographs, the posters have been photoshoped so they look more like illustrations.

If Dumbledore’s wand in the poster is supposed to be the Elder Wand, I’ve gotta say it looks horrible.

I love these! I think they are great! And Dumbledore’s hand is black! I didn’t notice the birds in Hermione’s. I especially love Ron’s, Dumbledore’s and Snape’s.

They’re great! I’m particularly intrigued by the addition of Snape and Malfoy. They are obviously very important to the story, and I think they both have very powerful pictures.

I want to talk about Snape. Most everyone else has some kind of fierce look, and his looks almost more like he’s in emotional pain and stress—which I think is really representational of who we know he is now post DH.

Of the “heroes”, Dumbledore definitely has the most power and control—I would not want to cross that man.
