New Half-Blood Prince Trailer to Show in Theaters before Ghosts of Girlfriends Past May 1st

USA Today has a preview of the new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released tomorrow night at 9:00 pm (Eastern). The paper reports this trailer will also be showing in movie theaters on May 1st before Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Director David Yates is quoted as saying:

"Once you're hooked into these stories, it's really difficult to let go," director David Yates says. "The audience has grown up with these characters. I think that gives them a very special relationship. I can't think of any other movie franchise that has had that. They started out at 10 or 11, and now they're 18 and 19."

You can also see the new photos now here in our galleries, including a cursed Katie Bell hovering in the air, due to the necklace, Dumbledore waiting in the train station (note the sign behind him) another of Severus Snape by a burning Hagrid's Hut, Fenrir Greyback the Werewolf, grabbing a victim, a closeup of the Dark Mark over Hogwarts, and a dramatic shot of a crazed Bellatrix casting a spell in the Great Hall.

The picture of Katie gave me chills, I’m so glad they didn’t cut that scene. Come on, July!

I’ve been waiting for a picture/shot of the Katie Bell necklace scene. I thought that was one of the creepiest parts of HBP and it looks to be fantastic! So eerie and scary.

This is supposed to be the final trailer I hear? Wish it would have come out a tad closer to the release since it is still 3 months away, but no worries. I’m sure we’ll get other behind the scenes stuff or whatever.

I think “Davied Yates” is right “The audience has grown up with the film characters” and we will grow up until the movie come out =)
the picture of Dumbledore is the best of them.

That’s a weird movie to put it in front of…I kind of want to see it, but you would THINK WB would put the trailer in front of Wolverine or something like that. But oh well I still cant wait to see this trailer!!!!!

Oooh, great pics..all of them. I just want to see the actual movie now. I’ve seen enough of all these teasers: we’ve been waiting forever for the whole thing. It’s not as great, seeing everything in tiny sections before watching the movie…

cghambright, the cinematography is responsible for Bruno Delbonnel. He worked on Amélía the french blockbuster. I have a good feeling about this film with the photography up to him.

Guess That Book

A mass of filthy, matted hair hung to his elbows. If eyes hadn't been shining out of the deep, dark sockets, he might have been a corpse. The waxy skin was stretched so tightly over the bones of his face, it looked like a skull. His yellow teeth were bare
