Yes, ladies and gentlemen: the C-Word! We’re talking about canon, of course. (And its dirty little sister, continuity.) These two words, and fan reaction to them, have defined much of fandom.

(FYI: The trailers for Bad Teacher and 30 Minutes or Less may be NSFW, as they are both red-band trailers.)
Are you ready to get chills?

As I’ve said before, I’ve been lukewarm on the latter films in the series, but I thought Half-Blood Prince was a step in the right direction and I’m really hoping that David Yates can bring everything to a satisfying close. This trailer is certainly promising, with plenty of thrills, tears, and wonderful photography.
