I don't get it ... How come it says "Tom Marvolo Riddle" when that is Voldy??
You speak the truth!
Warner Bros have had pointed out to thema couple of mistakes noticed in promo photos, including the grave stone.
QUOTE (The Snitch)
According to an article in The Courier Mail, fans have made Warner Bros aware of two major mistakes in the upcoming film. In a publicity picture from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (seen in the July 29th issue of Entertainment Weekly), Potter fanatics noticed problems with a tombstone in the background that read "Tom Marvolo Riddle 1915-1943". Firstly, Tom Marvolo Riddle being the birth name of Harry's arch enemy, Lord Voldemort, could not possibly be engraved on a tombstone in the fourth HP movie because he is STILL ALIVE! Secondly, if Voldemort is still living, then the dates one the tombstone would have to be incorrect as well. Because the picture with this big goof-up is a still taken directly from the most recent cut of the film, it raises a big issue.
Now Warner Bros. is wondering what to do before the film's release on November 16.
Producers are said to be considering altering the tombstone with the latest computer wizardry.
They have ruled out re-shooting scenes involving Radcliffe. But it is unlikely they can simply ignore the issue after it led to a fierce online debate.
One Australian fan, calling himself Sickle, said: "This drove me crazy."
Some also wondered why Rowling, who takes a keen interest in the movies, did not point out the errors.
Of course...many fans wondered if the name engraved on the tombstone was supposed to be Tom Riddle (as in Lord Voldemort's muggle father), but the middle name, Marvolo, makes the etching incorrect.
So there we go.
