The goods about this?
- More Rupert Grint.
- Maybe more Tom Felton.
- They’ll probably really milk the bit where Harry and Hermione are shown to be kissing, which will drive Daniel Radcliffe fangirls insane with jealousy. Someone might seriously hurt Emma!
- To be fair, some of the previous films have felt a little hurried. If they have two films this time, they might be able to devote some quality time to the character development and show us more of the engaging supporting characters.
- It is one more trip to the cinema to see one of my favourite franchises of all time on the big screen.
- More screentime = less screentime = truer to the original? You decide.
- More Emma Watson and her atrocious eyebrow acting. God’s sake.
- More Daniel Radcliffe. Gah. He’s on Zac Efron levels of annoyingness.
- It's seven Harry Potter books. Eight films? It just doesn't add up.
- That damn epilogue will probably last about 15 minutes.
- More $$$ for studios.
- There’s simply no need for it to be two parts; they managed to get the longest HP book, Order of the Phoenix, into one movie, so they’ve really got no excuse. If anything, the two films are going to be far too much screentime, and the studios might start adding random storylines just to fill the celluloid.
Hmm. I’m currently not too keen on the idea, but as time goes on, I may change my mind. One thing’s for sure, though; if they cut out “Not my daughter, you bitch!” just to make space for a new, invented Emma Watson scene where she gives some passionate monologue in order to get a bid at Oscar glory, there will be blood.
