The first posters posters for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince have now been officially released. The first one (courtesy Yahoo) shows a closeup of Harry, with Dumbledore reflected in his glasses.  A second one from MSN, seen here in our galleries,  shows more of Harry, pointing his wand (and sporting a most curious shirt). The third new poster, here in our galleries as well, features Professor Dumbledore turning to look at something, and is without his hat.

Thanks to Bekki and everyone who emailed!

I love how sharp these look! I especially like the Dumbledore in Harry’s glasses.

I wanted to read a lot of the comments before I commented; I was curious to see what people’s opinions were. I was also busy today. I’m glad we finally got them!

1.I like that the first one says “Once again, I must ask too much of you, Harry” as opposed to “coming soon.” I also like that it says “HP6” because that’s how I referred to the books/movies before I found that people in the fandom usually abbreviated them as “SS” or “DH” or what have you.

2. I think Dumbledore looks like Santa Claus. The tilt does not impress me—artistically anyway. I guess not many movie posters look that way, so that’s cool.

3. At first I thought it was a small creature also on the shirt. But I really think that it is just a combination of light and shadow on a flannel shirt. POOR EDITING, WB. Unless they wanted to drive us fans crazy.

4. My favorite movie poster EVER is “Have you seen this wizard?”

The close up on his glasses is my favorite. Love that there are actual lenses in the frames this time ;)

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are perfect!!!!

I am now having a heart attack, this is freakingly awesome!!!

I love the shading and the focus they have on Dumbledore and Harry. To some people who satet they look like PoA posters, I believe you are right, mostly because of the light and the angles used (also the huge zoom on Harry’s face).

YEY!!!!!!!!!!

I think these are quite boring. The fan made ones including the cave were much better :-(

I love the poster of a very close up Harry with Dumbledore reflected on his glasses. mysterious and intense, and suggests about the close relationship between the chosen one and the mentor. kinda like King arthur and Merlin. And can I say, sexy lips, Dan…? lol
