Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I (2010)
AKA : The Deathly Hallows
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort, Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange, Michael Gambon as Albus Dumbledore
'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,' the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.
Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort... alive.
Harry's only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale-the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became 'the Boy Who Lived.' No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' is directed by David Yates, who also helmed the blockbusters 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' and 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.' David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, again produced the film, together with David Barron, and J.K. Rowling. Screenwriter Steve Kloves adapted the screenplay, based on the book by Rowling. Lionel Wigram is the executive producer.
Heading the cast, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

World Premiere of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Premiere in London's Leicester Square!
Hundreds of people waited for hours on Thursday ahead of the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, the penultimate instalment in the fantasy film franchise.
Their patience was rewarded when stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint arrived on the red carpet. Harry Potter creator JK Rowling says David Yates' film - the seventh in the series - is her favourite so far..
Watson, who stars as Hermione Grainger in the wizard series, met some of the fans who had camped out in the rain for hours in London's Leicester Square.
In the new film Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, is seen kissing Radcliffe's Harry in a hallucination sequence. Radcliffe has said he was surprised by how passionate Watson was while filming the scene.
Watson said: "I don't know what to say. I suppose it had to be a kiss that would make Ron really jealous and so I think that's why I was so passionate." "It was all a bit embarrassing but we just got on with it and had a big laugh about it afterwards." She said of Daniel and Rupert: "I couldn't choose who was the better kisser. They're both like my brothers."

super bowl 2010 tv spots - Watch the TV spots for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, The Last Airbender, Robin Hood, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Alice in Wonderland shown during the 2010 Super bowl
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)-“ Translating a novel onto the big screen is challenging, because nothing can compare to the visual imagery created in the mind of the reader, but Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone does an admirable job and it's such a nice change to see a film so conscientiously produced and taking what is quite a risk, by not relying on casting a money making predictable Hollywood 'superstar' actor. ”
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)-“ ''The Chamber of Secrets'' still doesn't quite trust itself as a freestanding cinematic creation. But maybe it's not meant to, at least not on Columbus' watch. And maybe what comes across this time is the director's peace with his own limitations. Okay, so the production team is still overinvested in fancy special effects (Dobby the elf looks like he's a mudblood himself, with a lot of Yoda in his lineage). And he's still partial to convoluted action sequences, the most tricky of which include a visit to the Forbidden Forest, where Harry and Ron meet the giant spider Aragog, and a Lord Voldemort-haunted climax of good and evil involving Harry, the mysterious Tom Riddle (Christian Coulson), and a slithery basilisk. ”
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)-“ Even as hormonal chaos looms, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban based on the most beloved (at least by the HP readers I know) of Rowling's novels is no rebel yell; the territory by now is familiar, well trod, and surprise-free. Daniel Radcliffe and his blossoming compatriots have accumulated a touch more confidence, the British Actors' Equity cast stride through their business in the Old Vic manner, and the digital effects whip up a glutinous tumult. ”
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)-“ Mike Newell's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," the fourth film based on J.K. Rowling's popular but not easily categorized series of novels, may be likely to inspire admiration rather than warm affection, at least while you're watching it. There are stretches where Newell's picture, even as it radiates thoughtfulness and integrity, feels more methodical than magical. He and screenwriter Steve Kloves (who also adapted the first three Harry Potter pictures) have taken great care in streamlining the complicated fbplot of Rowling's novel, but even so, you can almost hear the gears turning from scene to scene.”
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)-“ The darkest and most threatening of the five Potterfilms, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenixis also the only series entry outside of the third, Alfonso Cuarón's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, that feels like the product of a vivid cinematic imagination and not just a faithful transposition of a kid-lit bestseller. The director, David Yates, brings an energy and efficiency to Potter Land this is the series' fastest-moving (and, at a mere 139 minutes, shortest) installment and infuses the heretofore storybook atmosphere with a grittiness that's as startling to our senses as it is to young Mr. Potter's. ”
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) -“ Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince represents the immensely popular series' first outing without the net of having new books waiting in the wings. As far as the written word is concerned, Harry's tale is done. Cinematically, there are still two volumes to come (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2). The critical question for the movies' producers is whether Harry will be as popular now that his legions of stalwarts know how it all ends. The smart money would be on answering that question with a resounding "yes!" Nevertheless, in part because the source material for the sixth movie is inherently difficult to adapt and in part because of some questionable choices made by screenwriter Steve Kloves in terms of what should be left in and what should be cut out, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince represents the weakest chapter in the franchise since installment #2 ”
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Premiere - Emma Watson dazzled fans at the premiere of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows by appearing on the red carpet in a skimpy black lace minidress. She was joined on the red carpet co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, who both wore smart suits for the launch of the first instalment of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
Final 'Potter' split point revealed - The Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows split point has been revealed. Warner Bros confirmed last year that the final instalment would be released in two parts, with the second part arriving eight months after the first. In a report, Entertainment Weekly confirmed that the split point would occur around chapter 24 of J.K. Rowling's book. The scene will see Lord Voldermort (Ralph Fiennes) gain possession of The Elder Wand as he takes it from former Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore's (Sir Michael Gambon) tomb.
Exclusive Fan Photo of The Hogwarts Express from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Here's something of a rather exciting story!

That something was The Hogwarts Express! Also in the background is platform 9 3/4, which even gets me excited for the final 2 movies that are coming to us later this year and summer next."
