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.

“Journey through time and space”? oh, no… that makes the story sound like some cheesy sci-fi thriller. To start the review in such a familiar way “we all know what happens in the books,” you’d think the reporter would try to sell it better to those still in the dark about the story. Or at least mention the attention-getting moments from the trailer. Sorry, I’m just overly protective of these stories, and I feel like we HP fans do a better job of marketing via word-of-mouth than carefully worded reviews…. alas.

Nice pictures. I just wish we could click on them all instead of just the few they let us without having to go somewhere else to see them.

Guess That Book

"You only like [Cedric] because he's [i]handsome,[/i]" said Ron scathingly.[br]"Excuse me, I don't like people just because they're handsome!" said Hermione indignantly.[br]Ron gave a loud false cough, which sounded oddly like [i]"Lockhart!"[/i]
