Full Description: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2' Test Screening


Share


Last March 28, I posted here on my bloggy blog that the upcoming war film 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' would have a test screening (you can read here) and my source was right.

Yesterday, the test screening happened. The 3 Davids: Yates, Heyman and Barron and Mark Day attended the said screening.

Remember, this is not a final product, this is just test screening: unfinished VFX, no proper scoring, no closing credits, they can still remove/add some scenes.

So here we go. After the image is the full description... This is a major spoiler for both readers and non-readers.


OPENING
The movie started with the scene of Voldemort getting the Elder Wand (which we'd seen in 'Deathly Hallows 1') then the very rusty and foggy Warner Bros. logo. You can see Snape at Hogwarts Tower looking outside. Hogwarts has lots of Death Eaters while Snape is watching, from the tower, as students are
marched through the grounds. Then the title appears.... then the sea until we reach the Shell Cottage where we can see Harry and Dobby's grave.

They said the opening of 'Deathly Hallows 1' is better than Part 2's

ALAN RICKMAN's PERFORMANCE
He will tear out your heart. Do not be surprised if he gets an Oscar.

MOLLY WEASLEY's LINE
Yes our favorite line of Molly Weasley before she killed Bellaturx: "Not my daughter... you b***h" is included in the film, and it was perfectly delivered.

THE PACING
The film has a great pacing except for the beginning part, which is too fast.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE's PERFORMANCE
He has really grown a lot as an actor. His best scene? When he was facing his death at the Forbidden Forest, ghosts of Sirius and his parents were there and also the Resurrection Stone.

BATTLE OF HOGWARTS
It is epic. Some said the whole Battle of Hogwarts is better than 'LOTR: Return of the Kings'. Half of the film is about the Battle, war!!!

VOLDEMORT, KING's CROSS (LIMBO) SCENE
The Baby Voldemort under the seat in King's Cross looks like an ab*rted fetus. An u*ly baby.

KISSING SCENES
Harry kissed Ginny at the Room of Requirements, but it was not an exciting kiss. The kissing scene of Hermione and Ron in the Chamber of Secrets is far better, but it was a wet kiss cause they experienced some splash of water when they're destroying the cup.

NAGINI
After the kissing scene of Ron and Hermione, Nagini chased them. Nagini was killed by Neville Longbottom, but on that scene Neville already knew that Harry is alive. Harry didn't know that Nagini is a Horcrux until the final duel.

Harry told Hermione and Ron to kill Nagini before facing Voldemort.

FRED's DEATH SCENE
It was not shown maybe because the VFX is unfinished. It was a sad part for the Weasleys.

LUPIN & TONKS
Lupin has more lines. Tonks? Just her apperance. No one was sure if she had a line. Their baby was mentioned before Harry died.

McGONAGALL vs SNAPE
Yes!!! Happened after Harry entered Hogwarts, where Snape did some announcement to the students to tell him if they knew the whereabouts of Harry.

SNAPE's DEATH SCENE
He dies at the Boat House. Voldemort slits Snape's throat by using magic then Nagini attacks him. Bloody? Yes! Harry gets the memory from Snapre's tear. Snape said: "Look at me... You have your mother's eyes".

WORMTAIL
He did not die. Some said, they saw Wormtail on the Prince Tale.

NIGEL
He died. Neville carried his dead body. :(

POTTERS' DEATH SCENE
Part of the Prince Tale.

VOLDEMORT vs. HARRY
It was long. You could see them around the staircase, tower, then jump off from the tower, flying as one, cliff scene and the courtyard, where Voldemort died.

HAGRID
Hagrid carried the dead body of Harry. After the war, Harry hugged him.

MALFOYS
Narcissa checked Harry if he was still alive. Malfoys did run away after seeing Harry is alive.

EPILOGUE
After the battle, the trio went to the viaduct bridge, did some little conversations and Harry broke the Elder Wand. The scene fade to black then the Epilogue scene. It was short and viewers wanted for more. Only Albus' name was mentioned. Teddy and Draco were not included in the scene. Harry touched his scar then Ginny touched his shoulder, the four were smiling. The theme 'Leaving Hogwarts' was played.

WEREWOLVES
Lupin and Gryeback did not have a transformation into werewolves.

DUMBLEDORE
His backstory was not mentioned so non-readers will not be confused. Her sister's name was mentioned.

ABERFORTH
Aberforth has a very important role in the films. The Two-Way Mirror subplot is wrapped up the way it would've been if the mirror were actually ever introduced in the past films. Aberforth said Albus told him that Mundungus stole the mirror from Sirius' House and sold it to Albus. Aberforth used his goat patronus. And he really looks like Albus

GRINGOTTS
Great scene. Griphook died because Voldemort everyone. The sword vanished after he died. Voldemort destroyed the Gringotts.

PRINCE TALE
Like in the book. It also shows some scenes from the film 'Sorcerer's Stone'. Word "Always" was mentioned.

MISSING
-Olliver Wood
-Kreacher, house elves (maybe because of VFX is unfinished)
-thestral

GIANTS & SPIDERS
Yes they are included.

RAVENCLAW TOWER
Only the door. Because Luna told Harry to talk to the Grey Lady, which is the only ghost in the film.

FUNNY HERMIONE
When she portrays Bellatrix. Because of the high heels.

SIRIUS BLACK
He has a super short scene. His advice to Harry is heartfelt.

HERMIONE HUGS HARRY
Harry told Hermione and Ron that he's a Horcrux and he needed to die. Ron and Hermione agreed. Hermione said that she was thinking that Harry is a Horcrux and then they hugged each other.

VOLDEMORT & BELLATRIX' DEATH SCENES
Disintegrate into nothingness when they die.
