*Update: The trailer is now available for download here in our galleries.

Several pieces of news relating to trailers for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. First up, owled regarding the trailer that aired previously on Japanese television. A clean (no subtitles) and much clearer version of that trailer  can be viewed here via Youtube.

Also, thanks to TLC readers Scott, Allen,, and UHP, who all emailed regarding updates to the British Board of Film Classification that now has listed what is presumably a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  Given a 12 A rating, this trailer runs 2 minutes and 20 seconds in length. We do not know when this trailer will be released, more when we get it.

At this rate, we’ll have the whole movie by the end of May, but in two and a half minute bits! Sort of like a Build-Your-Own Harry Potter.

it doesn’t make any sense.I thought that HBP was PG rated,why on earth has this trailer a 12A rating?unless the rating in Britain is different(and stricter apparently)than in the USor unless the 12A means something completely different.what do you guys think?

i liked the longer look at aparition, its closer to the book, not like the crazy smoke thing in ootp. which looked cool i admit, i also am seeing a trend in the trailers that sort of hint at dumbledores death (the cave), i know some sneek peek reviews said his death is treated like a side note, i really hope not.

I forgot about the Japanese trailer! This was great! I loved it. Awesome. I figured there would be another trailer closer to the release but I do agree it’s starting to get overdone. They’re starting to annoy me because it’s the same footage edited in a different way. It’s almost insulting now. A taunt of what we are still waiting for.
