So call me a nerd...

It really wouldnt be the first time.

As many (if not all) of you know, Im a huge Harry Potter fan and not afraid to say it.  I dont think there is a book or series of books that has ever made me want to keep reading like these books have.  These books got a lot of kids, and not-kids, to read again.  That whole witchcraft / magic argument is something for another day.

To my point.  

The newest trailer for the newest film was recently released and I must say this looks to be the most true-to-the-book adaptation of the entire series (thus far).  Order of the Phoenix was pretty spot on, but there are only so many things you can put in a movie while other, 'less important', plot points get left by the wayside.  Im honestly not sure how they are going to fit all the important details in to the movie.  Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince are definitely the 'Empire Strikes Back' parts of the series.  Nothing is going at all how it should.  People die that just...well...shouldnt if we're being honest.  And all hope seems, not to sound cliche, lost.  There are a lot of ends that need to start thinking about being tied up in this book, so heres hoping they put forward a good effort.

Heres the most recent trailer.  If it doesnt get you at least a little excited, I just dont know what will.
