Here's a new batch of high-res Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 pics!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The days are dwindling, the hour of Pottermania reaching its peak is nigh! And these pictures are sure to make even the stoniest of hearts crumble with excitement.

Anybody who has read the final book knows just how fucked things are for our heroes. For every victory there's two defeats. The last Potter film set us up for a great finale if they stick to the material (I hear there's a death from the book that isn't in the movie, but don't worry, I won't spoil it here... because I didn't look at it myself). From the below shots it looks like the kids are in for a brutal fight.

Bloody, dirty, sweaty... this isn't gonna be a walk in the park for our young wizard friends. Check out the newly released images and click each for a mega-big version!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looks great! What do you folks think?

    To be honest though...

    by LargoJr

    Im kinda fed up how Harry tends to practically trip and fall thru the movies, never really acomplishing anything on his own... more like having virtually every victory or sucess handed to him gift wrap, or simply surviving out of sheer stupidity. That and his having obviously attended the 'Jessica Alba School of Theater and Drama', in where any time you are involved in a scene involving danger, stress, or potential failure, it's always best to look like you're about to take a nap

    by 1204

    Mainly because he hasn't been in the movies since Chamber of Secrets. Although they kind of turned that Nigel kid into a combination of the Creevey brothers. Maybe we'll get to see Nigel blasted dead and being carried away in the arms of Oliver Wood. Not likely, but it could happen.

    The first movie was ok and the third one and frankly lost interest after that. I have friends my age (I'm 44) who jump through hoops about the Potterverse, which I find a bit childish.

    @milodc: "NO ONE in these movies is hot."

    by Henri Pouper

    Fuckin' A right. Good luck finding an English actress who's great at her craft and comely to boot. I'm trying to think of one right now, I'm sure I could do it but it would take a few minutes. (Has Geri Haliwell done any acting? Besides the Spice Girls movie, I mean.) Hermione, no. (She had promise in the first movie, but like 94% of English folk she was cute as a kid and turned completely meh as she aged.) Luna or whatever the chick on marijuana's name is, no. Quirky =/= hot, I don't care how many greasy nerds think so. Ginny Weasley, LOL, looks like someone punched her square in the face at birth. Who has ever seen a mug that flat? Take a scoop of tuna casserole and fling it to the ground, Ginny's face is like the part that hits the street. The Asian chick that Harry was into a few movies back, no. (Yes I said NO, all you yellow fevered white boys can just step off.) Bellatrix Lestrange, who is not hot, is as close to hot as you're going to get in these movies. I'm not going to comment on the dudes, I'm not gay and the female definitions of "hot" are stupid and usually not even consistent from woman to woman.

    Emma Watson isn’t hot? Whatever.

    by frank

    I still can’t believe the chick they got for Fleur Delacour, though. I guess the Goblet of Fire director must have been gay, which is totally fine, except that as a result he was apparently unable to distinguish between an extremely beautiful woman, which Fleur is supposed to be, and an extremely average-looking one, which the actress who plays her is.

    by Ribbons

    I get where you're coming from in that the first three or so are like Roald Dahl mixed with Scooby Doo, but I don't necessarily see what's so wrong with that. Also, as the series goes on it matures both in terms of tone and substance. I know popularity isn't an indicator of taste, but maybe you should ask yourself why so many otherwise self-respecting adults seem to love this series. Hell, if you didn't do anything that could possibly be perceived as childish, then you wouldn't be posting to a TalkBack on Ain't It Cool News, and then where would you be? Well... probably better off. Maybe that's a bad example.

    SPOILERS Who doesn't die.

    by vincentkv

    Colin Creevy isn't even in the film. Goyle dies in the movie instead of Crabbe because the Crabbe actor got arrested for dealing pot and if off the films. Everyone else who dies in the book dies in the movie. There's a couple of other changes from the book (Molly v. Bellatrix is intact) but none actually make me mad like Wormtail surviving Pat 1.

    "Emma Watson isn’t hot?"

    by Henri Pouper

    Did I stutter? NO ONE is hot in these movies, dawg. Emma Watson vs. Natalie Portman: Portman. (And Portman isn't even that hot. On a scale from Rosie O'Donnell to Olivia Wilde, she's barely above Gwyneth Paltrow and less than Scarlett Johansson.) Emma Watson vs. Elisha Cuthbert: Cuthbert (who is in Olivia Wilde territory.) Emma Watson vs. Kristen Kreuk: Kreuk (who is well above Scarlett Johansson). Emma Watson vs. Hayden Panettiere: Panettiere, without question. Emma Watson vs. Anne Hathaway: Hathaway. Emma Watson vs. Megan Fox: Well, Megan Fox can't act for sh!t but you get my point by now, I think. These are all SUPER easy wins. Don't even have to think about them. Emma Watson isn't even a Zooey Deschanel. If you want to limit the contests to English actresses, you don't need to look any further than Emily Blunt, who neatly trounces Watson with her long red hair, crazy beautiful grey-blue eyes, and classic features, or Keira Knightley, who's overrated but who could still take Watson even after a drunken night of nose candying with Charlie Sheen. Watson doesn't even have character, like, say, Kirsten Dunst, who isn't traditionally beautiful but has a sort of nasty/naughty look that we men love that puts her well over the ghetto of average beauty inhabited by Hermione. In the context of the Harry Potter movies, Emma Watson might be hot, I guess. But among actresses of her (or any other) generation?? You've gotta be pulling my ass. She wouldn't turn heads walking down the street. Be objective, that's the way to truth.

    by Kammich

    you do realize that sexual attraction is all subjective, right? for instance, you would not fuck your own mother, but i probably would. you just sound stupid when you're like "___ is NOT hot, and you're a faggot if you think she is!" get a grip, dude. unless you've got some sort of Larry Flynt credentials that you're not telling us about, just pipe down.

    I think some actresses are hot because someone told me to

    by Larry Sellers

    Please allow me to list the Maxim/People/Fuckall hot 100, as if it is some divine revelation. But yeah, I wonder whose death they cut out? I'm not complaining...they've taken PLENTY of liberties with the books and yet the films retain quality. For me, they've each gotten better since Order of the Phoenix (I thought Goblet was kind of a dip after Azkaban). The ending will still be plenty bittersweet (or "dark") when all is said and done. Lots of characters bite it. If they've only omitted one, it's still not enough to make it a 100% happy ending. Not too much of a compromise BUT WHICH ONE

    by GWB.AT.T

    be done with it. i feel not like a child at heart but a man child at this point watching these movies, which i can't not do. not that they're bad- okay, goblet of fire was badly adapted- but azkaban remains the only one that's a really good movie and feels cinematic. david yates' potter universe is so drab and determined to feel brooding that it has the opposite effect it intends and makes the films seem a little silly/self conscious. instead of fun.

    "you do realize that sexual attraction is all subjective, right?"

    by Henri Pouper

    Who cares? Subjectivity is for shit. I love this modern fad of assuming that, because some people apply a subjective value to something, then that makes their assessment as valid as anyone else's. Some people have a subjective preference for child porn. I once read a news story about some guy who penetrated a newborn baby. That was his personal preference. That Emma Watson is less attractive than all of them women that I named is fact. Some loser might not think so, but that doesn't mean that his evaluation is as good as mine. It just means that his ability to appreciate beauty is degenerate. He could be into Oprah Winfrey, too, for all I know. Amazing that I have to explain this to people.

    The ROTK battle took place during the day AND night, didn't it? I think Jackson primarily chose day battles since the Helm's Deep battle was at night and he didn't want it took look too similar.

    Emma is way, way hotter than Portman, keepyouretc.

    by frank

    At least as far as I am concerned. And all those others that you mentioned too, for that matter. Except maybe Anne Hathaway. I mean, Elisha Cuthbert? Ugh* Olivia Wilde is arguably the hottest woman of all time, but Emma is still smoking. *Yes, of course I would have sex with her without hesitation.

Fuck, don't know why I bother with nerds, you shits never have good taste in women, into Ellen Page and Janeane Garofalo and shit, cuz you think they'd maybe give you the time of day IRL.

    by Henri Pouper

    What "opinion"? I'm stating facts, here. Throw Emma Watson at 100 guys. Now throw Kirsten Dunst at them. Take a vote. Subjectivity is fine if you're the only one who cares. If you're making decisions for someone else, though, then your personal opinion is for shit, son. You'd better do your homework, in that case. Don't get me wrong, if some loser wants to fantasize about getting his pr0n on with Emma Watson (of all the women out there, LOL), it's all good, let him wallow in his broken perceptions and overall imaginative squalor. But facts are facts.

    "You just lost all credibility."

    by Henri Pouper

    I've lost dick. Dunst is no Olivia Wilde, or even a Mariah Carey, but she's a damn sight clear of Hermione. Men like SEX and Dunst has something that Watson is totally lacking, and that is that Dunst looks like she could nasty you up and down betwixt the sheets. She ain't ugly and she has bedroom eyes for days. Emma Watson looks like some chick you'd see sitting next to cloth puppets and singing the alphabet on Saturday morning.

  • April 19, 2011, 12:49 a.m. CST

    Kirsten Dunst looks like Billy Corgan in drag.

    by frank

  • April 19, 2011, 12:54 a.m. CST

    Just to be clear:

    by Henri Pouper

    You could certainly do WAY worse than Emma Watson. She's infintiely superior to Rosie O'Donnell, who is as ugly as you can get without getting into territory so repulsive that why bother. Watson is not ugly, technically speaking. But she has absolutely zero going on beyond her fame playing the most popular female character in a horrible line of welfare mom kiddie stories. She has other traits that make her a much better pick for non-sexual goals. She would make a great host of a children's show, for example, because if Megan Fox did that then you'd just be an eight year-old staring at the host's full, sensuous lips and tits and ass all the time. But with Hermione then you could easily concentrate on your lessons.

    by Fuck The Napkin

    Rowling totally chickened out of having Neville turn out to be 'the chosen one' at the end of the last book. It would have been the most wonderful twist - you've read seven books about the wrong kid! The dork is the hero after all! I even made it as far as the scene in the above photo in the book thinking he would turn out to be 'the one'. Following the sequence of who kills who, he should be the master of the special wand, not Harry. She bottled it once the movies and books got too popular - I bet she planned for Neville to be the surprise hero when she started writing.

    Final battle differences (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)

    by darthderp

    From what I've read, the final duel between Harry and Voldemort will be more drawn out than in the book. Those who have read the book remember that the two just engage in a bit of back and forth dialogue, then point their wands and shout their bread-n-butter spells (Expelliarmos vs. Avada Kedavra), only Voldemort's boomerangs on him and wipes him out. The movie's duel is longer and a bit more physical, with the two chasing each other, casting and deflecting spells at each other (and maybe a few punches) before the coup de grace. More cinematic, in other words.

If they dont have the bit where Voldy says something about "you must know magic I dont know, or have a weapon stronger than mine" and Harry says "I have both" and the entire watching crowd gasp! I LOVE that scene. Also, everyone should be watching Harry and Vold as they duel. If its the same scene as from the trailer, then it looks like nobody is watching. Which is totally wrong!

    Here there be spoilers

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    "So what will stop you dying now when I strike?” “Just one thing,” said Harry, and still they circled each other, wrapped in each other, held apart by nothing but the last secret. “If it is not love that will save you this time,” said Voldemort, “you must believe that you have magic that I do not, or else a weapon more powerful than mine?” “I believe both,” said Harry, and he saw shock flit across the snakelike face, though it was instantly dispelled; Voldemort began to laugh, and the sound was more frightening than his screams; humorless and insane, it echoed around the silent Hall. “You think you know more magic than I do?” he said. “Than I, than Lord Voldemort, who has performed magic that Dumbledore himself never dreamed of?” “Oh, he dreamed of it,” said Harry, “but he knew more than you, knew enough not to do what you’ve done.” “You mean he was weak!” screamed Voldemort. “Too weak to dare, too weak to take what might have been his, what will be mine!” “No, he was cleverer than you,” said Harry, “a better wizard, a better man.” “I brought about the death of Albus Dumbledore!” “You thought you did,” said Harry, “but you were wrong.” For the first time, the watching crowd stirred as the hundreds of people around the walls drew breath as one.

    Col. tigh-fighter (SPOILERS FOR ANYONE WHO AIN'T READ THE BOOK)

    by darthderp

    I'm sure a good amount of the dialogue will be in that scene; that's what explains the connection between Harry and the Elder Wand, and how disarming Draco made Harry the Wand's master. That scene from the trailer...I'm willing to bet that's the final part of the duel, when they cast the last spells at each other. Which would have looked cooler had we not seen it already in Goblet of Fire. We'll have to wait to see, I suppose.

    Didnt voldemort semi-kill potter in the book? I'm quite sure he hit him, sending him semi-death(and iconically killing off his last crux). From there, he walks away overly confident and is killed by the "other" chosen one Nevelle Longbottom.

    It has to be Lupin or Tonks...

    by expert_40

    ... and I am totally fine with that. Lupin dying was always, to me, like TOO much, from Rowling. Lupin needs to live to give Harry the father figure he's always deserved, but never had. Think about it. Dumbledore may have cared for him, but to Dumbledore, Harry was always a tool, a pawn to use to destroy Voldemorrt first and foremost. Lupin is the one adult in all the books besides Sirius and the Weasleys who loves Harry for Harry, not because of what he is capable of doing. If Lupin lives, I would consider it a change for the better. And BTW, if you watch the "look at Part 2" on the blu ray for Part 1, you can see that Fred dies, just like he's supposed to.

    Blackbauer and StarlessWinter

    by D.Vader

    I dunno, I have this memory of it taking place at night- that particular moment. Or maybe its just before sunrise since its around the turn of the battle. After all, its night when Harry walks into the forest. As for ROTK, my issue with that was how the daytime battle was supposed to take place under cover of darkness- Sauron flooded the skies with smoke and stormclouds so that all the men who woke up awoke to darkness and despair. PJ seemed to ignore that entirely and the first battle took place in bright daylight. That was quite disappointing.

  • Congratulations, you just set off my fucktard alarm, smart guy. I've been over this already. If you're the only one who cares, fine, enjoy, knock yourself out gettin' all dreamy over Emma M.F. Watson, who has the kind of face you'd start out with if you wanted to spend a few days sculpting a face that was actually beautiful. Now, say you have a gay dude that you want to save from his degeneracy and turn straight. Suddenly, what you yourself find attractive doesn't really matter so much, does it? Are you going to show him photos of Emma Watson, or are you going to break out pictures of Kristen Bell, Eva Mendes, Miss Piggy, etc.? People are objective about beauty all the time, dumb shit. When a casting agent is told that an attractive woman is needed for a movie production, do you think that he relies on his personal standard of beauty, or does he consider what is most likely to float the average male's boat? Fucking nerds and their tired, "you can't judge beauty!" bromides. I doubt you've even thought about the issue, all you dorks are just platitude conduits.

No doubt there are "men" out there who find Olivia Wilde wholly unattractive. Like I wrote before, if you want to sit there and marinade in your own hopelessly bad notions about subjective beauty, be my guest. For who am I to encroach on your comfy little world of upside-down make believe where K.Bell turns men fully gay while E.Watson is a sexpot porn star? But you are the last person I would pick to judge at a beauty pageant. Bitch.

    Why argue?

    by D.Vader

    If beauty was objective, there would be no need for competitions in which judges use their informed opinions to then vote on a winner. If beauty were objective, there wouldn't even be an argument over who was hotter. Your comments have said so much about how wrong your position, more is than anything I could contribute. You're so far beneath me at this point in the debate. You're grasping at straws, struggling for air, and the best you can do is resort to petty name-calling. Check mate. Go back to school.

    "Are you gay?"

    by Henri Pouper

    No, but I do know a couple of gay men who would do a better job of judging at a beauty contest than your warped ass. Emma Watson, FUCK!

  • "If beauty were objective, there wouldn't even be an argument over who was hotter." Totally, 100% wrong. Like, patently wrong. In fact, self-absorbed geeks like you and ginge_muppet, who think that Kristen Bell is somehow a gay man magnet (??!!), are exactly WHY we need judges at beauty contests. (Judges being people who can put aside their weird, flawed personal preferences and get down to what is really attractive to men as an aggregate. People who can be OBJECTIVE.) There is no guarantee whatsoever that a common people will all grasp an objective truth. There are people who think that the Harry Potter books are good literature, just like there are still people who think that Barack Obama is a good president (when anyone who thought logically about the guy for ten minutes knew that he would be an unmitigated disaster). People's subjective perceptions are flawed almost by default, and it's only through learning and experience that many bad perceptions get corrected at all. But even your dumb ass knows this to be true.

    seriously? You're spending an entire Harry Potter talkback arguing over who's hotter as if you're debating race horses? Do you not get that this is why women will never talk to you or take you seriously as a human being? I love the premise that you're going to 'throw Kirsten Dunst and Emma Watson at a 100 guys'.

    by D.Vader

    That's because like I already told you, I won. The fact that you are even arguing with people over who is hot or not by definition *proves* that beauty is not objective. The debate is over. You lost. And no amount of childish self-congratulation is going to make you right, though it may make help your low self-esteem. After all, you're the one fighting so hard to try and make your opinions on women valid, which tells me you really don't think too highly of yourself at all. The debate proves my point. Therefore the debate is over. I need no other proof to back up my argument. You lost. I've moved on. You should too. But something tells me you can't.
