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.

Wow I can’t wait to see Katie in the trailer! Haha the advert behind DD is hilarious. Is it just me or does the Snape pic look a bit fake though? shrugs

The Katie picture made me squeel – Yates hasn’t shyed away from that whole thing… The POV shot like that is brave!!! And the fact that they’re coming back from the Hogsmead makes me excited… This looks ace and I know rationally it isn’t alot but – RON AND HERMIONE ARE STANDING NEXT TO EACHOTHER!!!!

i’m sooo excited for the trailer!!! It’s kinda ironic that i hoped the trailer would be in front of The Chronicles of Narnia – that was a year ago. = P

The new images are all fantastic and certainly intriguing. I cannot wait to see the trailer later tonight; unless my expectations have been raised too high, it sounds as though it will be the best we have seen yet out of all of them.

Snape looks cool. I hope we get to see him fight a little in this one. I’m looking forward to the Harry chasing after Snape scene. :p
