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 (extended).

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!

Since I’ve never heard of Regal theaters, it’s probably not for me to see, but sweet! I’m glad Dumbledore levitates things at the Dursley’s, that’s one of my favorite Dumbledore funny things. And the birds Hermione throws at Ron! That has got to be great.

I just got back from seeing Coraline which was really #$%^ing trippy by the way. Kinda scary(freaky scary, not bloody/intense scary) and it was actually my very first movie in 3D, even though I’m 25. My eyes are still hyper alert from it.
But yeah, the Half Blood Prince first look was so awesome!!!!!

This cinematography was amaza-dazing. In my opinion Oscar worthy. Very beautiful lighting, even in the near total digital world of Quiddich. It talked about the dark stuff first which I don’t think had much new, but that could just be my memory fading and showed a little more of potions class.

It showed Hermione talking about amortentia, “The strongest love potion in the world.” she says. Emma says how in the movie Hermione finally comes to grips with her feelings for Ron. You can tell Hermione says the Apunno(sp?) spell right after she’s done crying in the trailer. She unexpectedly says it pretty quietly. The birds moved so fast I didn’t really see them and only saw Ron and Lavender laughingly stroll into the room then they miss Ron and splat into a door behind him.
It’s all kind of a blur after that though but I remember Bellatrix swooping down near the burrow(we saw a little of this in the ABC family sneak peek), Harry, Ron, and Hermione walking though the non-bridge courtyard in regular clothes, a little WWW with Fred and George, Dumbledore talking to Harry while pouring a memory and then the camera glides down into the Pensive(looked so bitchin), some really quick quiditch shots, Dumbledore moving furniture around Slughorn’s House, a little of Draco and Harry in the bathroom where it looks like Draco shoots a spell at Harry and misses before I assume Harry does Sectumsemprea, Ron saying the girls are going to kill him, then it cuts to a shot of Harry grinning from the scene at the burrow that we’ve seen a few pictures of with H, R, and Hr in Ron’s room.
After that Hermione tells Harry in the library “That girl over there, she’s making a love potion for you.”, Harry goes, Oh really? looks over and then the rest of the scene plays out with her hitting him over the head with the newspaper. I’m’ sure a forgot quite a few things, some guy was sitting down next to me and asked if I minded him putting down the arm rest between us. My eyes were so glued to the screen I almost didn’t respond but I think I said, ..yeah-go-ahead.. really quickly so I was sadly distracted for a sec. If it’s not uploaded to youtube by the end of the weekend I’m going to see another movie just so I can see it again!


He’s in Slughorns House when he does this. I really don’t like it when misinformation like this happens because people get hurt thinking something’s in the movie when it’s not. Then they don’t get angry at the person who started the rumor, whom they should, they get angry the extremely broad entity “WB” thinking the scene was cut when it was never there to cut in the first place!

Guess That Book

Malfoy certainly did talk about flying a lot. He complained loudly about first years never getting on the house Quidditch teams and told long, boastful stories that always seemed to end with him narrowly escaping Muggles in helicopters.
