Must Watch: First Powerful Oscar Campaign Video for 'Harry Potter'
Back in August we learned that Warner Bros. would be making a big push for their franchise finale Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II to get some Academy Awards love, at least in the form of some nominations, that could serve to honor the entire multi-billion dollar franchise. Now the first move in getting members of the Academy to pay attention to the epic conclusion has made its way online in the form of a short trailer (via Awards Daily) showing some of the finer moments of the film and praise from critics including Richard Roeper who calls it "one of the great cinematic journeys of our time." See it below!
Here's the first Oscar campaign video for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is again directed by British filmmaker David Yates, of Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince previously. The script was also written again by Steve Kloves, of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, and also Half-Blood Prince, but not Order of the Phoenix. This is based on J.K. Rowling's very popular series of books which have already concluded. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits Blu-Ray and DVD shelves on November 11th!
