Rumor Alert: Half-Blood Prince Trailers and Posters oh My!

HBP Film

Rumor Alert! Many reports are online, first brought to us by Portkey.it, stating that the full trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be attached to Inkheart in theaters this weekend.  Please note, some are saying this will be a new trailer, however it is most likely (if true) that this will be the trailer released back at the end of November. Also, reports say is that we will see an official HBP movie poster within the next few weeks. WB does not comment on rumors such as this, so please keep all of this in the rumor category for now!

Thanks to Portkey and all who emailed!

I was going to see Inkeheart anyway. But either way, its most likely not going to show in Canada. Probablt for Americans only, as usual

I loved that fake poster of the silver doe glowing in the forest…..and now I can’t find it in my files. Anyone have a link to it?

I was going to see Inkheart anyways, so I’ll get a bonus. :-D
I’d LOVE to see a new poster and trailer soon. July just won’t come fast enough.

TOO MANY PICTURES! TOO MANY TRAILERS!

This is Goblet of Fire all over again. They’re scared that the movie’s going to be a flop (PoA didn’t do too well, and the economy may stop people from spending big on movies this time around), so they’re desperately pumping money into this to beef it up.

I could make a decent slideshow of the entire movie, right now, with promotional images and trailer footage. No joke. Some people on YouTube already did that.

Trailer or not, gonna go see Inkheart. Haven’t read the books, but I have a close friend who has and says they’re pretty cool.

Can’t wait to see the poster,

Great! The one movie I wasn’t planning on seeing and they finally decide to show the trailer in theaters. They should have shown it a long time ago, and they lied when they said that they would show it for about three other movies.:(

Yeah, that is disappointing. Oh, well. At least they’re going to be showing it now.

Sure we already have 4 trailers (if we have to include the one with the logo and Dumbledore speaking. lol.) but this will most likely will be the last one. Besides… it kinda makes sense. I mean… they start filming DH in nearly two weeks, don’t they? I’m sure they want to finish the promotional stuff for HBP right now so they can spend quality time on the filming.
Is it safe to assume the next trailer will be the same one that was just released in Japan??

I really expected a poster back in November during the holiday movie rush. I hope it’s good. I’ll be disappointed if it’s just another “Harry pointing his wand” poster, though the past two films have had strong teaser posters, so we’ll see.

Sweet! I’m seeing that movie. I hope it’s the new trailer but I’ll be happy to see the old one too. They are always more exciting to see on the big screen!
