Of all the big summer movies this year, the one I’m really looking forward to see is Harry Potter. It’s the finale to an eight movie series that has unfolded over the past decade, and it’s nearly on the level of Return of the King for me. The last half of the book it is based on was simply epic with many deaths and a perfect ending to the series. The movies, starting with the fourth, have actually become pretty dark. I have a friend who has only seen the first and won’t see the rest based on that one, so I’ll need to convince him to give them another try.
It’s similar to the “Trilogy Trailer” that was done for The Lord of the Rings right before Return of the King released, and it really makes you want to watch all seven prior to the release of the final one.
