'Harry Potter,' 'X-Men' trailers ramp up excitement

"Harry Potter" fans have literally been waiting years for an extended glimpse of the final battle between Harry and Voldemort, and they finally got it on Wednesday night when the trailer for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" was released.

The trailer promises non-stop action - with wands flying and enough explosions to rival a Michael Bay film - in the final showdown at Hogwarts between the boy wizard and He-Who-Must-Not -Be-Named.

At one point, Harry tells Voldemort, "Let’s finish this the way we started - together," and pushes the villain, and himself, over a cliff. This moment is sure to get fans buzzing as it deviates from the book.

Check out the trailer above and the movie itself (in 3-D, for real this time) on July 15.

Not to be outdone, the second trailer for "X-Men: First Class" was also released on Wednesday and also has more action, plus a heaping helping of special effects (we see more of Benjamin Walker's Hank McCoy and January Jones' Emma Frost transform, for example). There's also a lot more of Jennifer Lawrence, who joined the cast of "Hunger Games" after the previous trailer came out.

As for the film's main relationship between Xavier and Erik, we get a look at a few more compelling scenes of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender discussing the future of mutant-kind.

Catch the trailer here and the movie in theaters on June 3.

What do you think of the two new trailers?

    who the heck is BENJAMIN WALKER? I think they mean NICHOLAS HOULT. Fact check before you print things please. But beyond that both trailers look fantastic.
