Oscar Telecast to Include Brief Clip of "Half-Blood Prince"

The New York Times is reporting today that a brief clip from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be shown at the end of the Oscar telecast on February 22nd. This comes as producers of the Academy Awards program asked various studios to provide scenes and clips from upcoming movies for the Oscar show this year. Today, the Times says that Warner Bros will be showing footage from "Sherlock Holmes," directed by Guy Ritchie with Robert Downey Jr.; "Terminator Salvation," directed by McG with a temperamental Christian Bale; and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” directed by David Yates with Daniel Radcliffe."

At this point we do not know if the HBP footage will be from previously released trailers or this will be new footage, and we will update with more when we can. The Oscars will be broadcast on ABC television Feb 22, 2009  beginning at 8pm (ET).

Thanks Thiego!

I wouldn’t hold my breath for anything groundbreaking. WB alone is giving clips for three movies, plus you’d have to expect at least that many from every other major studio, and possibly a few minor ones. And unless they’re doing a half-hour special post-oscar, it probably won’t be anything more than Harry spinning on his heel with his wand extended and the words “Half-Blood Prince, July 2009.”

Its a montage. That means quick quick quick.

Very good news! Will it be a new clip, or stuff seen before? Doesn’t matter, as long as they show something instead of just awards.
