BadTaste.it just landed the new (presumablyInternational)posters for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”. Clearly, the idea is that this is a movie so big, it doesn’t even fit its own poster. Hell, one of the posters has to abbreviate. That’s how big this movie is. However, the poster of Harry wielding his wand kind of freaks me out because his pupils are so far to the right that it looks like his eyes are just pure, spooky white. I guess if that was the purpose, good work.
I’m a little surprised that they haven’t come out with a poster showcasing Voldemort since this is really his book and most of what Harry and Dumbledore are working towards is discovering He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named’s origin.
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” opens July 17th.
