That was AWESOME!!!!!!! Except what the hell was with the waitress, because I really don’t like that. But that aside, it was really good.

I didn’t like the editing…And I don’t think that the 6th book is so happy…. Anyway it was just one of the many themes of HPB I hope… And I really hope that David Yates doesn’t use a steady camera all the time… We need some movement like in POA with Quaron…

PS. I still think that this film is going to be really faithful to the feeling of the book…

Lol! You guys are acting like this is the first trailer you’ve seen of the movie. It’s not even a trailer, it’s a commercial that just happens to focus on the romance of the book. It will not be the only commercial, I’m sure there will be many more that focus on the darkness, Harry/Draco, Harry/Dumbledore aspects of the book.

I personally really like it. It looks great! I can’t wait to see the movie.

I am getting so excited!

They seem to be marketing the film from many different angles..

Kid’s Movie
Romantic Comedy
Thriller/Mystery
Drama/Tragedy

loving it!

because the book was all these things and more!

Thanks H.W and Leaky for brightening up what has been a really rubbish day for me. I agree with the comments about the waitress thing… cringeworthy. But I liked slughorn and loved Snape (as always) in the background with his ‘bulldog chewing a wasp’ expression.

Thanks again Honorary Weasley, muchos kudos darling.

NO, NO, NO, waitress! What the? Okay, don’t like this at all! Sorry, WB, HBP is a little dark- it doesn’t have to be all about romance. Oh my gosh, I’m really annoyed now!

“I’m not so sure I’m liking where they took the whole Hermione-Ron-Lavander triangle. :( "
They haven’t taken the Hermione-Ron-Lavender triangle anywhere.
It’s still at it’s original destination, man.
