It seems rushed, like it’s missing something…But the clip hasn’t been condensed, has it? I wonder if they cut the scene with Dumbledore and the woman at the orphanage, where she mentions the disturbing incidences involving Tom and the other orphans? I hope not…

I have to say I wasn’t exactly psyched once I saw the clip…

One thing I did not quite get: this is not COMPLETE right? Because if it is… I’d feel real bad watching the memories. They have to be complete, a continuous event, and not random asortment of the most important details.

The pensive I LOVED it, although I find it unnecesary to have it been changed from the previous films. As for Dumbledore flickering the lights in the back: thumbs up!

That clip was very disappointing. I got up at 4pm to watch the awards just to see the clip and what do we get? A chopped scene with only one or two seconds of new footage. And i had to watch all this Twilight craziness till they show the clip.

But Robert was quite funny actually. Dorky but funny.

this movie is gonna be awesome
i hope the scene was chopped in parts
but, i had too high expectations for OOTP. I loved it, but it wasn’t the masterpiece I wanted. To me, Goblet has set the bar too high. To me. Now it’s gonna be hard to have low expectations. but 153 mins? Explosions? Comedy? Quidditch? How can this NOT be awesome?

It looks like they cut a couple of scenes to make it shorter…

Great Clip for fans, but am I the only one who thinks that maybe this wasn’t quite the best clip choice considering what was shown by all of the other films that gave sneak peeks because they all brought some of their best action scenes and when you compare the HBP clip with the rest honestly if someone isn’t already a HP fan they aren’t going to remember a clip that to a non fan is basically just Dumbledore telling a story. It just doesn’t really stand out among the rest and leave enough of an impression to draw in new viewers. This would have been a good opportunity to gain the interest of new viewers and I just feel like they sort of failed on that front. Am I alone in this thinking? I still really enjoyed it and will watch it over and over again. I loved seeing the Trio promoting together on TV because it feels like an eternity since they’ve been on TV or HP has been in the media for anything since the delay. I am dying to see this movie! Hurry up July!

Bella vita, I completely agree. Very disappointed that they chose not only a clip we’ve already seen, but then decided to chop up the scene to fit it into a minute long clip. Not to mention, as you said, it doesn’t leave nearly an impact as the first teaser trailer did anyway because of how rushed it felt. We know it’s not that choppy (and if it is, then it’s the worst editing we’ve ever seen in a Potter film to date).

Guess That Book

Mr. Weasley was slumped in a kitchen chair with his glasses off and his eyes closed. He was a thin man, going bald, but the little hair he had was as red as any of his children's. He was wearing long green robes, which were dusty and travel-worn.
