Sinister: Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, is seen here in a new poster for the upcoming movie Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part Two
Harry Potter fans are literally chomping at the bit waiting for the release of the final movie in the franchise.
And it seems the final instalment of the last book in the series, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part Two, could be the darkest yet, judging by three new posters of the film released today.
Harry Potter, played by Daniel Radcliffe, Hermione Granger, played by Emma Watson and Ron Weasley, played by Rupert Grint, are seen covered in dirt and blood as they pose in front of burning buildings in the new pictures.
Bearing the tagline 'It All Ends', the posters look dramatic, adult and incredibly final.
Readers of author J.K. Rowling's books will know how the story ends, but fans of the films are sure to want to see how the last book is translated onto the big screen.
The new film sees the saga of the boy wizard and his chums come to a climax after a decade on the big screen.

The story tells of Harry's final battle with his nemesis Lord Voldemort after he, Ron and Hermione have travelled the world to search for seven Horcruxes - the parts of the evil overlord's soul which have been hidden and which have to be destroyed in order to kill him.
As usual the film features a stellar cast including Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Griffiths, John Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Helen McCrory, Bill Nighy, Miranda Richardson and Alan Rickman.
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 follows on from the first part of the film, which opened in cinemas last November.

That's magic: The boy wizard uses his wand in his final battle - but who will survive?
And the premiere of the upcoming film, the final Potter movie to be made, will be the first red carpet movie event to take place in London's Trafalgar Square.
Studio bosses at Warner Bros decided that the franchise and its stars have become so popular that the usual Leicester Square venue was no longer big enough for the gala event.
Talking about the movie in a recent interview, producer David Heyman said fans will be excited to see the final 3D version of the film.

He said: 'Funnily enough I think this last film will benefit more from the 3D than the first one would have. It‘s more epic and operatic.
'The first one was a more intimate film so 3D didn’t feel as germane.'
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part Two is released in the UK on 15th July.
