Minimalistic Poster for HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS – PART 1 by Olly Moss

     November 1, 2010


Olly Moss’s has unveiled his latest minimalist poster, showcasing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. The illustration was designed for Empire and, as is par for the course with Moss, it is utterly awesome. For those unfamiliar with his pieces, Moss is a regular Alamo Drafthouse collaborator, and a sampling of his simple yet jaw-droppingly cool artwork was prominently displayed during this past year’s Rolling Roadshow. Tonight, Potter aficionados everywhere will dream that this baby is hanging on a wall nearby.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 opens November 19th. To see the poster, just hit the jump.

Moss seems to be winking at Sin City fans with this one, as the shaded Harry-both in terms of his murky lighting and vivid spectacles-is reminiscent of the silent, cannibal serial killer Kevin in Frank Miller’s comics. Or is it just me?

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.
