Thanks to WB, TLC has two stills from the upcoming new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Here in our galleries we can see a jubilant Bellatrix casting the Dark Mark high over the grounds of Hogwarts, joined by the Carrow sister and a laughing Fenrir Greyback. Also, we can see Harry Potter holding the Locket.

As we told you previously, the new full trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is due to hit tonight at 9:00pm ET. Stay tuned!

Ok, the whole harry holding the locket thing is odd. Is it the fake locket? if so, why does it look so exactly like the real locket? shouldn’t it look different (unless, as one person pointed out, maybe it does). If it’s the real locket, why does harry have it? Are we SURE this is harry holding the locket? Who said it was harry? that’s what it said in the post, but I wonder where they got the information. It would make more sense if it was tom holding the locket or something. I’m confused.

savingharry: It’s deffo Harry, you can see his red sleeve. It’s the fake locket that he retreives from the cave. I could be wrong though.

I don’t remember if the lockets looked that different, but the fake locket would be the most likely one in book six (movie 6).

yeah, and when Harry opens the REAL locket in Deathly Hallows it opens like a photo framed locket, to reveal the torturing images of Ron’s worst fears. I believe that this is the fake locket and it wouldn’t surprise me if R.A.B isn’t even mentioned until Deathly Hallows.

I just figured out the Bellatrix scene is probably after Dumbledore is hit by the Avada Kedrava curse, because that is the only time in the book when the Death Eaters are in Hogwarts. I can’t wait to see the new trailer.

@savingharry, we don’t know what the real locket looks like yet. The locket advertized a few months ago was a replica of the FAKE locket. I can imagine that the real locket will be identical to the one on the Adult British Edition of the Deathly Hallows.

I’m pretty sure the book says the fake locket looks different to the real one. But this locket looks like the one we’ve seen in photos before for HBP which makes me worry because idk if they’d show us so many pictures of the fake.

What I’m wondering is… as they haven’t shown the real locket before (it was in OotP book) what if they abandon the fake locket thing and just have Harry find the real one? I know this is majorly different from the books but they do have a habit of changing really important things. They could easily have Harry try to get another Horcrux from the pond. Hmm I hope I’m wrong though and I hope it is the fake in the pic.

Yes it is the fake locket, because we don’t see the real locket again until “Deathly Hallows”. That is a cool scene in the DH book when Ron has to destroy the locket horcrux with the Riddle-Harry and Hermione.

I hope they do that scene well in the DH movies. It most likely will be the first part of the movie and then it will leave off there to begin the second part of DH.

on noblecollection.com its shows that same locket in the picture with the caption, “the locket from the cave”. So the locket in the picture is the FAKE locket, we won’t see the REAL locket until the trio take it from Umbridge.
