Well, there were some good new clips. It seems like Gambon act better in this one. His line was really fun! For the first time we see people on the collapsing bridge. Poor people! The quality on the trailer was not good, but I think it will be released other places soon. This film will be intense, exciting, funny and awesome – even if it´s “just” rated PG!

It was really great… but… don’t you think they said too many times the phrase: “you are the chosen one”???

does anyone know what exactly is happening around 0:59 in the trailer?

Great News! Another trailer with some new and interesting scenes. I wonder when and how will they release this trailer in better formats and sizes. There is no other one place over the Internet to get this video downloaded, isn’t it?
By the way: Does anyone have the translation of the japanese skeaking on it? Just curiosity…

They have changed the dialogue in the library scene to fit the trailer if you listen carefully.

It actually seems like Emma Watson has made an improvement – her voice seemed more natural than before, or was it just me?
Tom Felton’s little snippet looked amazing too.

Wow…that was EXTREMELY revealing…

Why can’t we here in the U.S. get such a good preview to watch? All I’ve seen here in the U.S. is the old “Twilight” version. I work in a Movie theatre and they have not sent us any new “Half Blood Prince” previews. Why would WB want to insult and anger the “Harry Potter” fans here in the United States? I loved the preview online but it would have been better to see it on the big screen. Please could you comment on this, thanks.

@Joey: It’s not only the United States, you know. We Europeans get everything later then tha United States and Japan. And also Australia and Africa and the biggest part of Asia. The Americans must be glad that they get everything first or second, so quit complaining XD.

Does anyone know if the trailer has been released in front of inkheart today?

I think it looked great. It was awesome to see a trailer that seem to be about the main plot of harry trying to get the memory from slughorn. The young voldemort playing with his ring was a totally awesome shot. I was afraid they weren’t going to show the ring in this film and i was very glad to see it.

I love all the new dialogue. I wish we could hear the bits that were the voice was talking. It still looks great.

At 0.59 that is luna and harry at the gates of hogwarts. Luna finds harry in the train after draco has stomped on his nose and they walk up to the gate together. That is what is going on in that scene. I think they are met at the gate by snape and there is some sort of interaction between them.

“It actually seems like Emma Watson has made an improvement – her voice seemed more natural than before, or was it just me?

Agreed on everything you posted. Tom scenes in the trailer looked in tense, especially he was infront of the mirror and Emma definitely improved. She wasn’t horrible, but she could have been a lot better in the past. In the trailer she seemed more natural.
Also the Harry and Ginny kiss. squeals The kiss looks so sweet and tender. sighs
I can’t wait to see this movie. I think it’s going to be the best of the HP movies out so far.
