This full length trailer for the sixth Harry Potter film is a dramatic serious trailer, full of new music, stunning new footage, most notably Snape whispering "It's Over."New are dramatic scenes in the cave, new dialogue from Dumbledore on how he can not destroy it by himself, and Lupin speaks about a mission given to Draco Malfoy. There are new shots of Ginny reaching out to Harry saying "take my hand," and then, they hold hands. Also new are shots of the Quidditch stadium, a close up of the Dark Mark, Hermione smacking Ron on the shoulder with her book in the Great Hall, stunned students standing at the bottom of the tower, Draco, Harry and Sectumsempra fight in the bathroom, a cursed Katie Bell hanging in the snowy air, much to the horror of the Trio, new shots of the creeping crawling Inferi, Draco wavering on the Tower saying "I have to do this," new footage of the Death Eater attack on the Bridge in London and much much more.

I’ve compromised and watched the trailer with my eyes closed! So, basically I’ve listened to some really exciting and fast paced music thats got me feeling good without spoiling the film!

I keep hoping, and hoping, that one of the movies will live up to my expectations…

My major annoyance with HBP so far is the whole “you have no choice, Harry” – I can see what they’re trying to get at, but the actual discussions between Harry and Dumbledore about whether Harry does have a choice are so much more nuanced in the book.


Dumbledore: “You see, the prophecy does not mean you have to do anything! But the prophecy caused Lord Voldemort to mark you as his equal…in other words, you are free to choose your way, quite free to turn your back on the prophecy! But Voldemort continues to set store by the prophecy. He will continue to hunt you…which makes it certain, really, that – ”

Harry: “That one of us is going to end up killing the other. Yes.”

But he understood at last what Dumbledore had been trying to tell him. It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high…

Oh, wow! I love it! Best trailer ever. I’m glad they managed to fit so many different characters into it. I loved seeing more of Snape and Draco. And the Katie scene looks great.
