'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' Castle in Flames, David Slade on 'Eclipse'

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows teaser poster

The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 teaser poster has been released. As can be seen, it shows a castle engulfed in flames. The caption ominously reads: IT ALL ENDS HERE.

As attested by the preview and this teaser poster, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will be a much darker Harry Potter.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, Deathly Hallows: Part 1 comes out on November 19. Part II will follow on July 15, 2011.

Directed by David Yates and adapted by Steve Kloves from J.K. Rowlings' novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows features Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Smith, John Hurt, Ciaran Hinds, David Thewlis, Brenda Gleeson, Julie Walters, Imelda Staunton and Robbie Coltrane.

David Slade, whose The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has already broken several box office records and earned the Twilight Saga franchise's best reviews, yet, was interviewed by TheWrap's Jordan Riefe. It's a great, if brief, interview. Well worth checking out.

Slade doesn't talk about working with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner, but he discusses the director's role in Eclipse (“It's not director-proof. I don't believe anything's director-proof”), conferring with author Stephenie Meyer (“She would come in, and she would be an advisor. … But we knew there wasn't time for a lot of discussion”), and conferring with the Summit Suits (“You can get every single person who needs to make a decision at Summit into the bathroom. So it's not as many as you think”).

Slade adds that there may be a director's cut of 30 Days of Night out on DVD, which he promises will be darker than the version released in theaters.

Here's a brief (and funny) exchange:

What did they [Summit] want input on?

Largely big general points like, “Don't make Edward ugly in this scene. Make sure he's not in the sun because he should sparkle.”

I wish Riefe had asked if there'll be a DVD release featuring a darker director's cut of Eclipse as well.

    It's BRILLIANT!!! It captures the tone of book 7 perfectly, because it's so eerie and dark! It also parallels the Sorcerer Stone's movie poster, which is the beginning and depicts a happier Hogwarts!! I love it!!
