Warner Bros. has cast the trailer to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows upon the Internet. It will also run in front of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse starting this week. Bleak-looking and stoic-sounding, the trailer is appropriately epic. “The Boy Who Lived” gets some significant face time with Ralph Fiennes dastardly ominous, pasty and nose less Lord Voldemort. The brief glimpses of Harry and Voldemort scrapping looked ridiculous in both standard and high definition. Voldemort and Harry beaming magical energy bolts against one another was so crazy looking it compelled me to view the trailer about a dozen times. The David Yates-helmed grand finale will be split into two parts, the first of which will be released on November 19th, 2010. The conclusion is set to appear in theaters July 15, 2011. Both will be available in 3D, IMAX 3D, and 2D theaters.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.
