New "Half-Blood Prince" Preview Special Running at Regal Theaters
February 07, 2009, 08:20 AM
At select Regal theaters, a preview special is airing, featuring new footage, clips and interviews with the cast of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. According to the report, new are interviews with the Trio of Dan Radcliffe (Harry), Emma Watson (Hermione), and Rupert Grint (Ron) as well as Potter producer David Heyman. Also, some of the footage airing is described as follows:
Bellatrix on top of a table in the Great Hall throwing a spell
(extended), Hermione throwing birds at Ron, Hermione's jealousy of Ron
and Lavender ("Excuse me, I have to go vomit"), Dumbledore levitating
items in the Dursley house, a couple of new lines from Dumbledore, new
shots of the Inferi, and the "She Thinks You're the Chosen One" scene
Please note: these features, such as the one on HBP, often air well before the trailers begin before the scheduled movie start time. If anyone happens to attend a movie and sees this, please send in your detailed report.
Thanks to Matt and Andrew from MuggleNet!
Wait! Does this mean that we ARE going to get Dursleys in HBP?! That would be great! The only thing that would make it better would be Kreatcher and the "Won’t, won’t, won’t " on the Dursley’s floor scene. I love that bit.
Usually I bring a book with me to read while I’m waiting for a movie to start (I go to a lot of movies by myself.), but now I’ll be on the lookout for this feature. :)
DeliaDee, if this is what I’m picturing, it’s part of the Regal “First Look”, which – as Sue stated – airs well before the previews begin. It’s a way to pass the time while you’re waiting for the movie to start. Most of the time (at least in the theaters around here), they’re the same no matter which movie you’re going to at the theater. They play the same features for a couple of weeks before changing them.
I got to see the extended trailer when I took my children to Pink Panther 2. What a treat!! Some extra scenes inlcuded Ron playing Quidditch, different views of filming where Dan/Harry filming close-ups, Dumbledore and Harry in the Cave and instead of Dumbledore fixing things in the Dursleys it actually reminded me of the scene when DD and Harry went to convince Slughorn to come to Hogwarts. I may be mistaken on some parts as I was carrying drinks and popcorn and found myslef stunned to see this! It was really cool and it makes waiting for July that much harder… that an my 40th birthday is a week before HBP. At least I will be getting to see the movie soon after…something to look forward too!
