Now, having said all that, it's time to get a look at our first bloody image from the second installment. Hit the jump and dig into the battle scene.
Unfortunately, we had to remove the photo at the request of the studio.
As you can see, that's a bloody determined (not to mention just simply bloody) Matthew Lewis as Neville Longbottom. Bellatrix Lestrange lingers behind him, backed by a horde of sinister Deatheaters.
Neville's grown up a lot over the years. In the first books and films, he was the really awkward and gentle kid who hung around in the background. Now he's morphed into the daring man who not only stood up to Voldemort's evildoers in Part One, but takes over for Harry at Hogwarts in Part Two. And when the battle commences, he gets to face one of Voldemort's closest allies. It looks like the above image could be that very moment, and it's nice to see Longbottom getting a bigger taste of the action.
It's all about to come to an end. Are you ready to see the fight come to Hogwarts? The second installment hits theaters on July 15.
