The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features a cover story on the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" film, which, at long last, reveals the split for the final installments of the film.  High Res scans of the entire EW feature can be found right here thanks to  The report features a number interviews with the cast and never before published information about the film.  A caution now to readers, for the rest of this post will contain SPOILERS!

The film, EW reports, "will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder Wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows that allow the bearer to conquer death."  The article goes on to feature quotes from many of the cast members and director David Yates, who speak in turn about bringing the conclusion of the Potter series to the big screen.  They also reveal details about the film; including the final scene the Trio ever filmed together.  Quoteage:
The three of them [Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint] are shooting a scene in the Room of Requirement in which Harry, Ron, and Hermione are searching for a Horcrux- in this case, a tiara-like Ravenclaw diadem.  Watson and Grint are sopping wet.  (In the film, Ron and Hermione have recently destroyed another horcrux in the water and were perused by a Voldemort-shaped tsunami.)  
As production on the two films wound down this summer, the three stars faced the prospect of having to film their final scene together.  "It was bizarre," Watson said last week by phone.  "Walking on to set that day, there was this incredibly thick atmosphere.  It felt like a moment in history.  It felt really big."  In the scene, Harry, Ron, and Hermione have broken into the Ministry of Magic.  They jinx a woman and drag her into a tiny storage area.  So the final frame ever shot of all three actors takes place in a cramped little room.  "These characters have been in the most fantaistical situations at Hogwarts- they've been in the Dark Forest, all these extraordinary places," says Yates.  "It was an odd way to finish, really."  But poetic, perhaps, considering that the whole series began with a boy who lived in a tiny room under the stairs of a house on Privet Drive.  "In a way," says Yates, "the series started with a cupboard and ended with one."
The full article can be read right here.  "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be in theaters on November 19, while "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will arrive on the big screen July 2011.  The Fall Movie Preview issue of EW is on newsstands now.

Update: We now have this new photo of Dan Radcliffe as Harry Potter in formal wizard wear brandishing his wand.

Stop being so stupid. We don’t know what happened in the COS, other than Hermione destroyed the cup.

I guess we actually get to see Ron and Hermione destroy Hufflepuff’s cup down in the Chamber of Secrets. I assume that would be where they encounter the Voldemort shaped tsunami.

Then don’t have reservations.
This is not the book. This is not supposed to be the book.

‘tsunami’ is just ew’s word. I’m guessing all the water from the chamber amasses and turns into a wave which has a voldy face. I mean, if the FX are as good as what they did with water in the 5th film, it will be good. also, does any think bill night looks like a bizarro Jennifer Saunders in that picture!?

i love the split
not where i would have put it but it sounds great
the tsunami is pissing me off because once again its adding stuff in when they dont have room for everything true to begin with. it sounds good but grrrr ffs jk didnt want that.
and the pictures look awesome, although harry reaching for his wand looks more like a round querky kitchen that id expect at the lovegoods, not bathilda’s

He said the filming ended in a cupboard. They shoot these things out of sequence. I doubt the movie ends in a cupboard. Anyhow, I can’t wait to see it.

This phrasing is interesting.

“The three of them [Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint] are shooting a scene in the Room of Requirement in which Harry, Ron, and Hermione are searching for a Horcrux- in this case, a tiara-like Ravenclaw diadem.”

Having Ginny hide the potion’s book seemed a set up for her leading to where it was, that she recognized the diadem when she hid the book. I guess not, just — maybe — telling them where it is.
