For years now, Warner Bros has maintained a website intended for the film industry as part of promotions for various awards such as the BAFTAs and the Academy Awards. Just a we have posted in the past about the effort to promote the beloved series for the awards, this year is no different as the promotions for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince are now available, including releasing the official script online. At this link (PDF) you can read the adaptation by Steven Kloves for the sixth Harry Potter film. At the website, you can also listen to the score by Nicholas Hooper and see previously released photos from the film. Enjoy!

Please note: Many of you have emailed concerned over the varying versions of the script floating online (as is the case with the other films); please be reassured this is indeed the authentic version.

Thanks to the scores of readers who emailed!

why wouldn’t anyone read the whole thing!? think about it this way: it only takes as long to read it as it does to watch the movie. i want them to release all of these. after reading this, i have to say, i’m starting to doubt that the bad stuff in Potters 1-4 and 6 were all Kloves’ fault, but this script was beautiful, and more often than not, the film suffered when they deviated from it.
