Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer -- Part 1

For your viewing pleasure this morning, the new trailer for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," whose posters carry the ominous line: "It all ends here.">

Well, not exactly. The seventh and final last book in the Harry Potter series has been divided into two parts, with Part 1 opening in theaters in November. A synopsis from IMDb: Voldemort's power is growing stronger. He now has control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione decide to finish Dumbledore's work and find the rest of the Horcruxes to defeat the Dark Lord. But little hope remains for them, so everything they do must go as planned.

I've noted before that I object to the trend of splitting books into two movies -- "Stephenie Meyer's "Breaking Dawn," for example. It makes perfect sense for the movie makers, who want to sell as many tickets as possible and to extend a franchise as long as possible. And die-hard fans tend to love the idea, too. But it discourages the average moviegoers -- like me -- from seeing even one part. And really, if Scarlett O'Hara's tale can be told in one sitting, can't we do the same with Harry?
