The premiere for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is in London on July 7th. Fans all over the world will be able to watch in real time as it is going to be live-streamed on YouTube.
The event will be broadcast through the Harry Potter channel on YouTube and I imagine will feature the cast of the film as well as author J.K. Rowling arriving and talking from the red carpet.
To build even more hype YouTube have added all seven previous movies (which you can rent), interviews and behind-the-scenes footage to the Potter channel.
I'll be interested to see how successful this is, but as it's Harry Potter related I going to guess it'll do pretty well...
Worth noting though is that this showcases two of YouTube’s new products, one being the ability to livestream and the second providing a rental service for movie studios, both of which have the potential to grow substantially in the future.
In addition to writing original content for MoviePush, I link to a lot of articles all over the web through my twitter @rossbishop mainly focused on movie marketing. If you’re interested and like to keep up to date, please follow me.
