HBP Film

Earlier we told you the February edition of Empire Magazine would contain a new preview of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Tonight, the first scan from the magazine is in our galleries  and contains our first look at Fred and George (James and Oliver Phelps) in their Weasley Wizard Wheezes shop (note the words "Magical Mayhem,"  then "Disastrous" on the side of the walls). Also new is a photo of the Trio (Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson) along with Professor Slughorn (Jim Broadbent) in the Three Broomsticks pub.

Thanks to reader Tracy!

You know dcrazmo, I too have the feeling they will cut the wedding in the DH film adaptations. I don’t know why, probably because the really relevant events in it are some tidbits of Auntie Muriel’s little chat, Krum’s anger with the DH sign and Kingsley’s lynx patronus. Anyway, can’t wait…

I like the look of the shop. I for one always did imagine it big, I don’t think that was really laid out in the book for sure. I think the movies are fine. For devoted book lovers, the movies never match up to the source. With the exception of Lord of the Rings – they are what they are. And – I just had to throw my 2 cents in along with many of the other commenters – OOTP was pretty much my favorite book too. I loved the dark, angsty, sinister feel to it. (and for the record, HBP was probably my least favorite of the bunch – but, still loved it!).

The shop looks FABULOUS but I’d love to have seen the magenta robes. And really, what has happened to the Weasley red hair. Gred and Forge look pretty brunette in those brown suits and Ginny is down right mousy brown.

Cuaron is a stylish film maker. As a director of a Harry Potter film he sucked big time. He was far too interested in producing his own pretentious vision of HP rather than Jo’s – Shrunken Heads, bluebirds and other nonsense that JKR said no to. Yates film was stylish while maintaining it’s integrity to it’s source. The evidence so far suggests HBP will do the same and that INCLUDES the new material.

bellasnape, i agree with you, but good luck getting whiners to listen. it seems that’s all the internet message boards are good for. people venting about things that don’t even really matter.

Thank GAH the twins cut their hair. I know that makes me sound old (hey, I am… what can I say), but that stringy nonsense they had before was too much. John Lennon they ain’t.

James and Oliver look so cool in their suits; I’m thinking that this movie is going to be worth the wait.

Thank you, I’ve spoken my peace. Besides non of you should talk about HBP or DH movie until you officially see or hear whats confirmed to be in or out.
