Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Website and Trailer up

http://www.harrypotter.com

The site has been redesigned to promote the third film and includes a new trailer and final US theatrical poster.

I like the poster design, but I think the new trailer is great ... nice hints at plot and some glimpses at the best scenes from the book.

That definitely is a good trailer. It's nice to have a trailer not give away the entire film (even when you know what's gonna happen).

Yeah, heaven forbid we know what is going to happen in the film. I mean they should really becareful what material they release before. I wouldn't want to have already read it or anything.


I can't wait. I even bought the damn_t-shirt from hot topic.

Knowing what it's about is fine. It's when the trailer gives the best/critical parts of the movie away that I get angry i.e.ID4 showing them blowing up the capital

THAT. WAS. AWESOME.

This is probably my most anticipated movie this year. Man that was good. I got goosebumps. And Hermione is H-O-T.

And I thought the first trailer was awesome! That one blew it away. I can't wait... at least we don't have to wait until November this time.

(Hey, anyone know where I can hear the "Something Wicked This Way Comes" song from the first trailer... other than by actually watching the trailer?)

I wonder if they got permission from Ray Bradbury to use the phrase "Something Wicked This Way Comes"...it's got to be copyrighted, doesn't it?

Prediction: better than the first two combined.

Hiring Cuaron as director is one of the smartest things the franchise-runners ever did.

Actually that phrase comes from William Shakespeare's play "Macbeth" (Act IV, Scene I). John Williams uses other lines from this scene for the lyrics to the song that plays during the older Azkaban teaser trailer.

Something Wicked This Way Comes (Teaser Trailer)
Music by John Williams
Lyrics by William Shakespeare

Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double, toil and trouble
Something wicked this way comes

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing

Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble

Something wicked this way comes

This looks so much better than the first two films.

I also though The Fellowship of the Ring Ringwraith's would make great dementors but I like what they have done here.

Last I heard was that it will be 1 movie. There is a discussion in this thread from August.

I loved the trailer, but I'm kinda disappointed with the poster. Surely Warner Bros could have come up with something more original than the standard "big-head" design. I loved the mockup of the Wanted poster with Sirius Black on it, so why couldn't they have done something along those lines?

Anyway, I am looking forward to PoZ more than either of the previous 2 films, mostly because of the presence of Alfonso Cuaron. I think he stands the best chance of staying true to the books dark tone.

Always liked the Harry Potter stuff, books and movies, but never thought they were anything great. After watching the new trailer, I am actually excited and really looking forward to this. I wonder, if it is very good, if there will be any Columbus backlash...as in how poor of a director he is. That is IF it is leaps and bounds better than the average first two...

Columbus a poor director? I'm sorry, but he is a great director when dealing with kid actors.

Just a few more months, just a few more months. It's been too long since the last movie to wait.
Still hoping they split Goblet of Fire in two but who knows.
