On the heels of yesterday’s in-your-face poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Warner Bros. has released yet another close-up poster. This time, the poster features Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and so it begins that Deathly Hallows – Part 2 will follow the advertising pattern of the previous Harry Potter films and give a banner to every single freaking character. The poster may proclaim “It All Ends”, but I don’t think that’s referring to the infinite stream of upcoming character posters.
In a related fake story, The Onion News Network reports that Warner Bros., unable to part with their beloved franchise, will break the final minutes of Deathly Hallows – Part 2 into its own film franchise. The film’s fake producer also wants to explore new movies that will examine what background characters are up to and then more films exploring what their brooms are up to. Hit the jump to check out the poster and the ONN story. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 opens in 3D on July 15th.

Thanks to Nathaniel for the heads-up on this ONN story:
Here’s the official synopsis for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2:
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts.
In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
It all ends here.
