Awesome picture! Finally a good picture of Dobby. When Dobby was killed, it was like my heart was torn out. I loved that little house-elf. His spirit will always remain a legacy.

Awww Dobby! R.I.P The poster is different…. It seems like the marketers are going at a different angle… something dark and yet simple. Not sure if I like it that much..

As for it being rather simple, keep in mind all promotional material isn’t only used for movie posters.

Have you ever noticed those huge movie character banners that have hung from ceilings at theaters? I think some of the images seen here are for those humongous banners, not wall posters.

These intense closeups would be perfect for that use. Imagine seeing all 8 of them lined up: Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Dobby on one side. Then Snape, Voldemort, Fenrir, and Bellatrix’s closeup banners on the other side of the main entrance to a movie theater. Awesome!

Fabulous. This marketing campaign is actually genius. There are a lot of people out there who are just movie fans and haven’t read the books and therefore don’t know what is about to happen (I know it seems insane but trust me I lived with someone who was a fan through the movies only and refused to talk about book 7). By making the promotional material simple they are doing two very important things:

1). keeping the tone dark and showing those of us that know what’s happening that the tone is there. They are beaten, bruised, scared. Exactly what we expect them to be.

2). Keeping it completely spoiler free. They are dark and ominous and you get the feeling from them that “Nowhere is safe” or that “the hunt is on” but you aren’t spoiled as to what is happening. It’s genius. It’s dark, its ominous, it’s frightening. But it doesn’t give anything away.

Think about the other marketing campaigns from some of the great blockbusters. The Dark Knight had some of the most simple posters out there. But they were fantastic! And that movie is truly dark and frightening.

I love it. And I love that they are including Dobby. Love. Love. Love.

If this was on my wall I’d die of fright every time I looked at it. These posters are awful. I can almost see skin cells!

Photoshop on speeds!

Though I’ll admit, this one actually fits the character very well. Dobby was a very annoying, in your face character. Personal space was an unknown concept for that guy.
