Three Dark, Gritty Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Banners

What does a nuclear power plant have to do with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows? Absolutely nothing. But that didn't stop Warner Bros from including some giant nuclear reactor cooling towers in the background of one of these banners for the final Harry Potter saga, which starts when Part I hits theaters on November 19th. Yahoo debuted these three dark, gritty, epic banners (which you'll probably see hanging up at your local movie theater very soon). I like how crazy dark they all are, but the imagery is a bit weird. I guess they've got nothing to lose selling these last two epic movies. I'm already pumped to see both of them!
Click any of the banners above to see them fullsize. And watch the latest epic trailer here if you haven't yet!
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!
I like the blood spatter effect.. makes them really pop. I don't understand the power plant either, though.

I like them, they're bringing into the real contemporary world setting, not some isolated wizardry school. Very cool angles and colors.

God I hope this movie is rated R. Wouldn't that be amazing?

Um part of the video games is like he rescues some wizards in a cooling tower so may b theres a connection scene with that in it possibly to make the movie more intense but idk could b anything

Not blood, sparking embers i think. Also, are these considered banners? Wouldn't they be one banner if strung together? Looks like character one-sheets to me.

I believe the landscapes are just a representation that they are out in the great, wide world instead of confined to the safety of Hogwarts. I'm not sure if the plant, or any of the other landscapes we see behind Harry or Hermione for that matter, actually makes it into the movie. But this first movie they are running around London, basically, on the move and trying to find somewhere safe to hide from Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Like "Voldemort" said above "nowhere is safe."

Nuclear power stations in the UK are all seawater cooled, so they don't have cooling towers. Those are almost certainly the towers of a coal-fired power station.

power_plant_pedant - Damn you are right, if only we could have had some threat to a nuclear power plant the plot would have been so much more thrilling - but gee nuclear power plants here are quite safe so perhaps not so thrilling!
