'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1': First Look at Blu-ray's 'Maximum Movie Mode' -- EXCLUSIVE

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 hits DVD and Blu-ray on April 15, and we’ve got your first look at the Blu-ray combo pack’s “Maximum Movie Mode” feature. Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) hosts the interactive journey through the film, revisiting important moments from previous movies as a walk-up to the final installment’s arrival in theaters on July 15. In the clip below, Isaacs reminds us why we fear the Dementors and that they went through a design change. Not covered: Why a Dementor Halloween costume isn’t as scary as one would expect. (It’s the nose.)

    Yay!!!!!!!! Can’t wait for April 15th!

    Harry Potter and the Most Depressing Movie Ever! Seriously, they should have mixed some Zoloft in with the popcorn for that one.

    • Chelsea

      And it only gets more depressing from here (namely Harry’s walk in the forest). Can’t believe it’ll all be over after Part Two. It’s hard to believe.

      • Liz Lemon

        All of Part Two depressed the crap out of me. Starting with Aberforth’s story about what happened to Ariana then all the deaths then Harry’s walk and then the fact that when you finish the book, you know there’s not going to be another one. All depressing.

    can’t wait until May 15th!! Netflix blooooows.

    • Charlie’s Angel

      HAHAHA! FUNNY.

  • PNK

    Jason Isaacs is amazing. Yo, and he looks about 25 in these clips! Saw him doing this on the Family channel HP weekend, I was stunned it was him!!

    • RT

      A few years ago I saw Jason Isaacs in a couple of episodes of a story arc on “The West Wing.” There was something oh so vaguely familiar about him so I looked him up on IMDB to see what I might have seen him in before and was STUNNED to see that he was Lucius Malfoy. I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

        @PNK
        You should have seen him on that Showtime series, Brotherhood. Then, you really wouldn’t have believed it was the same person.

    • Zoë

      I saw him up close at the Deathly Hallows London premiere, and he is HOT!

    • Liz Lemon

      Yeah it took me awhile to realize who it was. He’s hottie!

    • Kim E

      OMG! He is hot!

    Warner Brothers to DVD owners — screw you.

    These extras are only available on the Blu Ray combo pack. If you have only a DVD player tough cookies as you will be unable to view the featurettes. If you have a Blu Ray player you will, but you’ll have to buy a DVD copy of the movie that you won’t need in order to do it.

    • Chelsea

      That sucks! Someone usually posts them on Youtube though, so hopefully I’ll be able to see them all there. Some of the scenes I’m surprised they cut from the film (especially Petunia and Dudley’s goodbyes to Harry)

      Here’s a list for anybody interested:
      (SC 7 – THE BURROWS SHED – RON DISCUSSES RADIOS WITH MR. WEASLEY) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 15 – THE DURSLEY HOUSE – HARRY AND AUNT PETUNIA AS THEY LEAVE HOUSE) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 16 – THE DURSLEY HOUSE – HARRY AND DUDLEY SHAKE HANDS) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 61 – THE GRANGER HOUSE – DEATH EATER SEARCHES DESERTED HOUSE) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 83 – MINISTRY OF MAGIC LIFTS – HARRY TELLS ARTHUR HE’S BEING TRACKED) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 89 – TENT – TRIO DISCUSS DESTROYING LOCKET) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 108 – RABBIT CHASE IN THE FOREST) (DELETED SCENE)
      (SC 108 – MONTAGE: RON & HERMIONE SKIMMING STONES) (DELETED SCENE)

        Deleted scenes will be on the DVD. Word is that Wal-Mart will have an exclusive two DVD set with all the other extras.

      • Liz Lemon

        Yeah. Walmart has a special version that comes with Dobby Bookends! And the second disc has all the features that are on the Blu-Ray give or take a few.

      • Chelsea

        Thanks guys! You’re right, I just checked, Walmart does have the 2 disc DVD version.

    • Traci

      I love Blu Ray Combo packs. My kids can have the regular DVD for the car or playroom.

      • Ricky

        I’ve wondered the same, I have a fnreid that raves about his 9 year old in Montessori education but he fails any test given to him. My fnreid answers they eventually get it. Standardized tests don’t agree with this method but this method may be better in a lot of areas.

    • Dex

      I believe that the Maximum Movie Mode is only available on Blu-Ray because the feature plays concurrently with the movie, which I don’t believe is a capability that DVDs can support given their much smaller data storage capacity.

  • Caracticus

    Jason Isaacs. Sluuuurp.

  • Sammie

    Sweet. It’s coming up. =)

  • Mike

    It’s too bad the director can’t give us an extended version of HP like Jackson did for LOTR. The deleted scenes in all the HP movies pale in comparison.

    • Liz Lemon

      Yeah it does suck. It would’ve been nice for them to film everything in the books and then edit the films down and include the additional stuff in an extended version of the movie. However, the extended versions would be about 6 hours long and WB would’ve had to have spent an extra 100-300 million per film to include all that stuff…and I doubt they’re willing to shell out that much money for scenes that won’t even be in the movie.

  • Jose

    Two Things:
    1) Jason Issacs is hot
    2) Maximum Movie Mode seems like an annoying way to watch a movie.

  • m1

    I honestly hate Warner Bros. DVD marketing strategies. They aren’t available on Netflix until a month later, and the regular DVD’s don’t even have any special features on them. GARBAGE.

    • DRG

      Wal-Mart will have an exclusive 2 DVD set with all the extras.

  • Samantha Brown

    Awsome so all the special features will be on the dvd? Brilliant. I thought it came out on 11th not 15th? Oh well whats a few days lol. I’ve preordered mine online so I wont even have to go out to the shops.

  • MAHARAPKIR

    The Maximum Movie Mode can never be placed on DVD because it works with the movie in single Blu-ray (50 GB) and its impossible to do that on 4.7 GB.Neither will the Focus points work on Dvd. And of course the opening scene from Harry..Hallows part 2 will not be there.Except these three major features ,the remaining few can be expected on a 2 disc dvd.

      18 von 20 Kunden fanden die godfenle Rezension hilfreich: So sieht eine Limited Edition aus!!!!, 6. Dezember 2009Vona0 Rezension bezieht sich auf: Feuer und Eis 3-Disc Limited Collectors Edition (Blu-ray + DVD) [Blu-ray] [Limited Collector’s Edition] (Blu-ray) Bild: Gemessen an dem Alter des Films ist das Bild sehr gut, wenngleich er natfcrlich mit neuen Produktionen nicht vergleichbar ist. Aber wer den Film von frfcher kennt, wird mit dem dargebotenen Bildtransfer mehr als zufrieden sein, da dieser deutlich das schon gute Bild der alten Special Edition-Dvd locker schle4gt. Und so sollte es ja auch sein. Ton: Zwar wie angegeben in DTS-HD, aber es mangelt ein wenig an Dynamik und hier und da meinte ich ein leichtes Hintergrundrauschen zu hf6ren. Aber wiederum gemessen am Alter und an der Tatsache, dass es sich hier nicht um eine Mainstream-Produktion handelt und somit eine noch bessere Aufarbeitung an den fehlenden Geldgebern scheitert, gebe ich auch hier eine gute 4 von 5. Zur Aufmachung des Mediabooks kann man wirklich nur sagen: Spitze! Einzigartig ist auch die Doku Painting with Fire auf der Bonus-DVD, die einen ausffchrlichen Einblick in das Leben von Kultzeichner Frank Frazetta gibt. Fans des alten Bakshi Klassikers werden an dieser geradezu liebevollen Umsetzung ihre helle Freude haben und ich bin sicher, dass in einigen Jahren diese Bluray eine begehrte Sammler-Edition darstellen wird, ffcr die man dann horrorende Preise bezahlen wird.Helfen Sie anderen Kunden bei der Suche nach den hilfreichsten Rezensionena0War diese Rezension ffcr Sie hilfreich?a0 | a0

    Great article. I cant wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.
