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!

Its kind of weird for me to be seeing the logo at an angle, but that is just my opinion. I really like these posters and hope to get my hands on one of them. And of course this makes me veryy excited for the movie!

As much as I would like to see a unique poster for each film, I understand why the go with the classic Harry image. What says “Hey there’s a new Harry Potter movie coming” more than a picture of Harry’s iconic glasses or him holding a wand. It does get a bit redundant though, which is why I liked the Voldemort one last year. Still, these are well done. I look forward to the high-res version so we can get a better look at that shirt.

Well… I actually liked the second and third poster the best. The first one has a nice pic of Harry, but I didn’t fancy the HP6. They wont be able to carry that to the 7th movie, unless they make HP7a and HP7b… I don’t know. It felt like it didn’t belong. And the glasses reflection… well… I’ve seen enough of those. If the poster was only Harry it would be much better for me… because the picture really is awesome.

The other two have a more “classic” thing about it. I liked the cut on the title and the pictures angles… it’s almost as if the posters says the plot is getting bigger and things are not nice and down to earth as they once were… as if things are running out of control (yeah… I’m out of my mind today).

As for the reflection on Harry’s shirt (reflective shirt?!)… it looks like the Inferi… or maybe it’s representing death crawling it’s way towards Harry’s life… well, as I said, I’m out of it today.

Can’t wait to see more!! ^^

I’m not all that impressed. I little boring I think… And for some reason I’m really disappointed that the colour scheeme isn’t green. HBP has always been green to me. The Dumbledore one was cool though!

Oops! Sorry about the double post!
Maybe you got a point there Caramelsilver… this “gray aura” is getting a little old. It could use another color scheme.

The posters are awesome, but when I first glanced at the second one, I thought Sirius was on his shirt, then a castle, but I decided Peter Pettigrew in animagus form. But now I agree with ravenclaw 1028 that it looks like Scrat from Ice Age….

Wow! They’re all stunning. I think I like the first one best though. I like the second until everyone started talking about his shirt, and now that’s all I see…

I was so hoping that they would put Snape on one of the HBP posters but I suppose that they think it will ruin it for the people who only watch the movies. Still I can help but feel a little disappointed since Alan hasn’t made it onto a single HP poster yet.

I like the one with Dumbledore reflected in Harry’s glasses… the one of hatless Dumbledore just makes me immediately think he is going to die. I wonder if that’s just because I know it’s going to happen – I’d ask someone what they think of it, but I don’t think there’s a single person in theworld who doesn’t know what happens at the end of this movie!!!!

I think they all look great! Though, I agree that the HP6 makes it look weird. The slanted thing is different, too, but goes well with the pictures. Can’t wait for the movie!
