Look closely and you shall see, a poster for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince...or three..or many! Marketing is in high gear for the upcoming sixth Harry Potter film. Thanks to TLC reader hpboy who emailed us about a fantastic bunch of posters he spotted last night lining the walls of the subway in New York City near Times Square. You can see his large collection of photos he took with fellow fans here via his Flickr. Also thanks to Andy from Harry Potter FanZone who let us know about a poster from Australia showing Dumbledore and Harry outside the cave

As these posters are soon to be on walls, billboards, sides of buses movie lobbies and more all around the world, if you are out and about and take photos of these, please send them to staff@the-leaky-cauldron.org and we will post them! Thanks much hpboy!

UPDATE: Thanks to Enrico from Harry Potter Update for these photos of lifesize cutouts of Harry Ron Hermione taken in a theater located in the Philippines

PLEASE NOTE: Again, we apologize for the down time we are experiencing with several of our sites, including our galleries, and hope to have them up again in the near future. Thanks for your understanding!

Haha cool. I wonder if my cinema has one up? I wonder how much it’ll cost to buy it after they take it down?

Guys, you have no idea how my friends and I flipped out when we saw those posters! Needless to say, we got some odd looks since this was near midnight and we were running around and shrieking, hanging off ledges and hugging poles :D

Hell yeah, Debbie – Dyanne was there too, but since she’s the level-headed one I put her on camera duty. I wonder if the others are gonna upload pics – I distinctly remember among the HP goodness like 5 cameras flashing all the time.
Why yes, Jax, I do rather like the Hermione ones ;) Alas, if only they had a Luna poster…
