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!

It better be some good footage. I still hold a grudge against WB.

“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."

Exactly. I’d love another min or so of footage, but I don’t think we’ll see more than 3 or 4 seconds. Maybe we’re wrong!

we can always hope…

I hope I haven’t fallen asleep by then. It’s about 6 or 7 in the morning here in the Netherlands when the show ends… I try to stay up every year but that gets really difficult at a certain point when you;ve been watching television for so long.

Hm, the clips will be broadcast after the Oscars? Then the chance of me seeing it in my country is zero. :(

Oh well, that’s what YouTube is for anyway… :P
