Wouldn't it be great if Harry Potter could go out on a cinematic high, not just enjoying blockbuster box office success, but finally to win a prestigious Academy Award for the film franchise grand finale.
That's what Warner Bros. Studios are hoping for anyway, and to coincide with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part two on Blu-ray, they are also kicking off their Oscar campaign around the streets of L.A. to capture the attention and imagination of all the Academy voters.
Daily Billboard especially likes this close-up of Harry's spectacles, where if you look through the lens the Harry Potter logo comes into focus and is not so blurry. It's small, but it's a nice design touch.
It's sad to think that after all these years these may be the last Harry Potter movie billboards we see for a while, at least until some anniversary or the studio decides to re-make the franchise from scratch in a few years time.
Daily Billboard will certainly miss Harry, Snape and Voldemort gracing the skies of Los Angeles, so be sure to enjoy this Oscar consideration collection.
These movie billboards were snapped along Sunset Boulevard and Melrose Avenue at the beginning of November 2011.
Maybe soon they'll have something to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!
UPDATED: Daily Billboard also spied this Hagrid creative for this Oscar campaign along Ventura Boulevard in Studio City on November 28.
And this bigger one along Sunset Boulevard on December 3, 2011.
