*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.

Lol. I agree, not enough Rupert! But oh well. It was still a good trailer. I love the part where Arthur says “they do funny things to people” and Draco’s in the bathroom. sighs Tom is so hot.

Hmm it’s been a while since I read the books, but does Dumbledore actually ever call Harry the ‘Chosen’ one? Just makes it sound like the gods have chosen him or something. There wasn’t ever any choice about it if I remember rightly.

I really haven’t read it in ages though.

Fabulous trailer :D

AWESOME!! It’s sooo good!! I love the part with Teen Tom Riddle playing with his ring and the part when Snape is shooshing Harry looks so creepy…I wonder if in the movie Snape puts the freezing charm on Harry because that’s what it looks like. I just love the whole thing! I really NEED to see this movie NOW!!! :D :)

Yay!!!! It is so much better with out the Japanese talking above it! I could hear some of it.
“A toast… to Hogwart’s brightest and best!”
I do not like the “shooshing” (?) of Harry from Snape! I hope it is not on the tower!

Much nicer than the dubbed version! I finally got to see one of the trailers in the theater when I saw He’s Just Not That Into You on Tuesday.

I am glad that there is a clearer version of the Japanese trailer to watch on my iPod! I will convert this YouTube video as soon as possible.
