Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010)

This is a noteworthy movie. Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) is gaining strength and is even starting to worry the Ministry of Magic. At a meeting of the Death Eaters, Snape (Alan Rickman) informs the group that Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is planning to leave his aunt's home for protection. The Order of the Phoenix arrives at Harry's home and administers the Polyjuice Potion, so any enemies will not be able to detect the real boy. The plan is foiled and the group is attacked. Scrimgeour gives a few items from Albus Dumbledore to Ron, Hermione and Harry, and tells them that they need to find and destroy the remaining horcruxes.

During opening weekend, Part 1 grossed $125 million, breaking the record for the largest opening in the series. The film also became the second-highest November opening, the second-largest opening of 2010 (behind Iron Man 2), and the sixth-highest of all-time. Director Yates and co-producer Heyman said that the sixth film was written to anticipate events that would be appearing in the final story. Some of the footage was shot in Swinley Forest, a large woodland in Windlesham and Winkfield. Part 2 is expected to be released on July 15, 2011. Special effects, and not older actors, will be used to depict the cast members as adults in the file scene of the epilogue.
