Just how good is it? Are there any flaws? Was the splitting of the two films the right call? Check out a bunch of reviews after the jump. Read More »

“It all ends.” So says the latest round of advertising for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which hits theaters July 15. The phrase obviously has several interpretations: the end of the Potter story, the final Potter movie, etc. But the one thing that “It all ends” apparently doesn’t mean is the end of the posters Warner Brothers is putting out to publicize the film. Four more have just come online and, I’ll admit it, like most of the other posters released, these are very attractive. But, really, did we need four more? Is this movie not going to make $400 million domestic and well over $1 billion internationally? I think it can do that in its sleep without a shred of advertising.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has begun screening so we’ll surely start to hear reviews soon but, until then, check out these new posters which – with the film being released in just over a week – could be the final ones, after the jump. Read More »

In yet another sign that audiences are tiring of shelling out a few extra bucks at the theater for the latest crappy studio-enforced 3D upconversion, early sales data show that 2D ticket sales are outpacing those of 3D tickets for Green Lantern and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Though the book series has long since ended, and there’s only one month to go until the eight-part film series closes as well, fans who have been mourning the end of the Harry Potter franchise can perk up again. A mysterious new website called Pottermore.com suggests that we may be getting, yes, more Potter sometime in the future — though in what capacity we’ll be getting more Potter is not yet quite clear. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling launched the cryptic website yesterday, one month ahead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2‘s July release. Read more after the jump.

With just one month left before the Harry Potter film series ends for good, it feels like we’re getting a some new bit of promotional material practically every day. At this point, I’ve lost count of just how many posters we’ve already seen for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. But as long as they look this fantastic, I’m not complaining. In the days since we last showed you the last batch of posters, featuring the heroes and villains looking dirty and bloodied, a handful of new posters have been released. Hit the jump to see the forces of good, an army of evil, and a huge-ass dragon.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The tweet pretty much says it all. As if you needed another reason to head to the theater on July 15, the first look at director Martin Scorsese‘s 3D family film Hugo Cabret could possibly be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. However, while the tweet looks legit, it should be considered a rumor. Paramount confirmed that the @HugoCabretMovie Twitter account, and accompanying Facebook, are not official, but they did not deny the news of the trailer attachment.
Based on a famous book by Brian Selznick, Hugo Cabret stars Asa Butterfield and Chloë Moretz as an orphan boy and strange little girl who become friends in a Paris train station. Scorsese, as he tends to do, has put together a dynamite supporting cast including Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Jude Law, Michael Stuhlbarg, Ray Winstone and more. It’s scheduled for release November 23.
