*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.

It’s nice to see a clean version of this trailer (and one without the Japanese announcer dubbing over the narration). It looks really awesome in HD on YouTube especially.

Luna’s lion hat looks great! I actually rewound the trailer and paused it so I could see it better. It looks cool!

Snape looks surprised that whatever building Bellatrix is dancing in front of is suddenly on fire. He rapidly turns around, and suddenly there’s Bellatrix.

How come we’re still not getting anything about the Half-Blood Prince potions book plot in these trailers? Are they planning to keep it a surprise?

Jim Broadbent is doing awesome as Slughorn so far in these trailers as well.
