Check This Out: Awesome Olly Moss Poster for 'Harry Potter 7'

Another poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but this time we've got something unique. One of the most well known - amongst movie fans at least - poster artists out there is the great Olly Moss, who designs often for the Alamo Drafthouse's Mondo Tees. This time, Moss designed a special Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows "illustration" (as he calls it) for Empire magazine (via Twitter/Flickr). I wonder if they're giving subscribers a print of this, because it's pretty freakin' sweet. Obviously it's a Sin City-esque silhouette version of Potter, but the best part about this is the hidden Voldemort in the scar. Check it out!
Be sure to watch the first full-length trailer and second theatrical trailer for Deathly Hallows online as well.
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 I will arrive in theaters on November 19th later this year!
Sweet! But why does Voldemort have a nose? 😉

i especially like how the scar is glaringly in the wrong spot, and his glasses are so low it looks like his face is melting off. Honestly tho, this poster seems like a rip of of Cobra... yes the 80s action movie with Stallone. The tagline should read: Voldemort is the disease... and Potter's the cure.

Who am I on Nov 4, 2010
First off, let me say that I am nearly 30 years old, an avid reader, and I love Harry Potter. J.K. Rowling has a wonderful style that makes it easy to emmerse yourself in the world of witchcraft and wizardry. So often when I read fantasy books such as these, it becomes difficult to identify with the characters and the world the author presents. Thankfully, Ms. Rowling does not fall into that trap, and I think its because the series is not a fantasy story, its a coming of age story that happens to be set in a fantasy world. Ms. Rowling does an excellent job of never letting the reader forget that this is a story about Harry, not about Magic. Similarly, she keeps the readers in mind: as Harry grows, so do the books. They become longer, more complex, even darker, as the readers who began reading the books at a young age will be able to keep reading and identify with Harry as he grows to adulthood.With that said, this book was not as well written as it could have been, given the time it took to write, and especially when it is compared to the other books in the series. There were also a couple of plot elements which went unexplored, though I'm sure that Ms. Rowling has plans for them in the future. The climax, too, left me a bit unsatisfied; I wanted more to happen, and a better explaination of the events which occurred than what was offered. Now for the good parts. It is true that the narrative is a bit slow in the beginning, but I think it sets the right tone for Harry's mood to begin the book. Most of the criticisms that I have read have also mentioned how whiny and unpredictable Harry is, but I remember when I was 15, and Harry's behavior is very familiar. Ms. Rowling keeps the story about Harry and the growing pains which come with adolescence. Finally, the whole of the story, the back plots and what not, are truly gripping; for example the confusion that Harry feels when he finds out what his father had been like at his age was wonderfully done. All in all, Order of the Phoenix is a great read, and the critiques I listed above did not interfere with my enjoyment of the book. I recommend this book, but I do suggest reading the rest in the series first. It adds more to the readers' understanding of the back story and references made throughout the book. Otherwise you may be lost and miss out on a great read.
