I'm rather surprised they are still trying after the failure at the SAG's and GG's. These ads are wonderful but they lack the main component that is Oscar Bait - Alan Rickman's Snape. There is not one glimpse of him here. I love these ads though; they help me relive the thrilling nature of HPDH2. I simply loved every frame of that move
