Harry Potter mania is at an all-time high, but the latest Deathly Hallows news isn’t what Warner Bros. would’ve liked: a leaked Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows clip is now showing on a small computer screen near you. That’s right: a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows clip has been leaked online — to the tune of 36 minutes, no less — and is reportedly available via multiple torrent sites.
For the record, DailyGame does not condone those sites nor pirating. But, if the leaked Harry Potter clip is out there, it’s a safe bet that a few readers are going to want to locate it. Hopefully, it’ll just fuel your desire to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One even more — leaked clip or not.
According to the torrent site TorrentFreak, the first 36 minutes of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is out in the wild on dozens of torrent sites.
Ironically, the printed version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was also leaked online three years ago.
Recall when Wolverine was leaked a full month before release, yet had no impact on box-office results. Obviously Warner Bros. hopes for the same, particularly considering the theatrical debut of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is only days away. However, the length of the clip — 36 minutes — begs the question as to why the entire film wasn’t leaked.
TorrentFreak has a great hypothesis: Warner Bros. feared a leak of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, so the studio limited the time of the screeners so it included portions of the film rather than the entire film, thus minimizing the impact of any potential leak.
