MTV debuted a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the VMA Awards last night, and it goes a little something like this:
Looks decent, although I’m beginning to feel like finishing out the Harry Potter movie series is something of a chore. They’re OK movies, but incredibly forgettable. It works to the novels’ advantage, though. Everything I remember about the Harry Potter series comes from the images I had reading the book. It only takes a few days’ separation from viewing the movie for the novels’ impressions to bounce back in my mind’s eye. The movies sometimes color and structure my memories of the books, but they never replace them. So, congrats are in order for Warner Brothers, who have managed to make billions off the franchise without really tainting the novels.
