A decade has passed since the first Harry Potter film adaptation successfully raked in a pool of cash for author J.K. Rowling. Now with the final chapter, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, ready to be unveiled this summer, Rowling’s fingers are itching to count another load of paper that she’ll add to her already burgeoning wealth.
The final novel of the series was too massive, and holds too big of a potential for profit, so Warner Bros. went ahead and divided the film into two gargantuan segments. Part one has proven itself as a huge success, raking in $950 million worldwide since its November 2010 release. So the stakes are equally high (or higher) for part two to do ridiculous numbers at the box office.
The grand finale will follow the epic Battle of Hogwarts and the ultimate showdown between Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and the dude “whose name must never be spoken," who's better known as Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). As expected, the trailer depicts a gloomy and epic vibe, with the young wizards wielding celestial wands and casting spells against evil monsters and dark magicians. Director David Yates and all of the previous film's cast return to finish the job.
Expect a long line at theaters on July 15.
