*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.

Yes I noticed the apparation too – but for story and pacing it’s better than using the brooms.

I love the trailer – and just the bit at 1:24 where Ron and Harry are in their Quidditch things before the match made me SOOOO happy. At last cannon Ron and next to him Luna looking ace in her Lion hat!!!

Awesome trailer. But I’m worried that they have changed too much in the film. Is that Snape telling Harry to be quiet near the Astronomy Tower? And Dumbledore & Harry Apparating inside Hogwarts? Just seems like too much is changing and isn’t true to the books. But, I can’t wait to see the film, it looks great. Ignoring the annoying changes.
