Footage from Deathly Hallows Premieres at ShoWest, includes Voldemort confrontation

Multiple reports have surfaced tonight that Warner Bros. scored a big hit with trade show attendees by showing unfinished scenes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at this year's ShoWest, an important movie industry exhibition.


One report notes that footage showed Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), bloodied from battle and "visibly terrified," walking into the woods to meet Voldemort, who taunts him with, "The boy who lived, come to die."

We saw little bits of everything, from the seven Harry Potters escaping from the Dursleys house (totally surreal) to the attack at Bill and Fleur's wedding to the escape from Gringotts on the pale dragon and even Hogwarts on fire. With unfinished effects it's hard to really say how it all looks, though some of the most effective moments were the simplest -- Ron and Harry's fight in the tent, Harry visiting his parents' graves, running away from the Snatchers in the woods, Harry defiantly telling Voldemort that he stays alive "because I have something worth fighting for."

Another notes:

Other bits of footage were Harry, Ron and Hermione in the forest fighting as Ron tells Harry that since he already lost his family his pain isn’t as important (or something like that).  We also saw tons of pre-viz mixed in with shot footage like Harry flying with Hagrid and Voldemort chasing him with other Death Eaters.  I also saw a scene of all the Harry’s from the beginning of the book.  Other bits were the kids in London walking around, Bill Nighy  as Rufus Scrimgeour, Harry and Ginny kissing, and so much more.  Some of the footage looked like done and some was very rough.

The only thing I knew for certain after watching the footage was the movie is going to be amazing and I am so happy the last book is in two parts.

The trailer ended with the info of when the movies are getting released and how they’re both in 3D.  Which is awesome.

FirstShowing also notes that the Quidditch area burns down. More as it comes!

awesome. i hope they do not come out with 500 million trailers like they did for HBP. and there is something that makes no sense to me in this, “Hogwarts on fire”. i dont think youd be able to burn hogwarts. and they burn the quidditch pitch? why?.. i wonder if hagrids hut will be stepped on by a giant, that would be sad but cool.

dont get your hopes up on these last two movies guys that way you wont be dissapointed if they dont live up to your expectations. alot of people were geared up for half blood prince and many were let down because of the huge cuts that were made to the final film. i wasnt let down coz i went to the cinema with an open mind knowing what cuts were being made and knowing that the book and movie are two different things and that the movie wouldnt be exactly like the book. as for the final 2 movie yeah there have been things added like the burning of the quiditch stadium but i think this will add to the action and drama of it all. im not opposed at all to these additions and its sounding like they are finally staying pretty faithful to the book this time. if they get this right it could beat lord of the rings for the most epic finale of all time. fingers crossed

I’m very surprised they showed so much footage.
I’d rather wait to see it in the theatre for the first time.
