Just when you think you've seen it all, comes a whole host of new high res stills from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, notably of Alan Rickman as Severus Snape. As seen here, you can see Snape sitting at Spinners End, reading a copy of the Daily Prophet. New as well is this fascinating photo of a questioning Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) standing next to Snape perhaps  right before the Unbreakable vow (look at the emotion on his face!)

Also new are looks at Luna (Evanna Lynch) handing a copy of the Quibbler to Ginny (Bonnie Wright) as Dean Thomas (Alfie Enoch) looks on standing in the corridor of the Hogwarts Express, and Luna in her Lion Hat. Other new photos include Lavender (Jessie Cave) talking to Ron (Rupert Grint) and the Gryffindor Quidditch team at breakfast in the Great Hall,  many of Weasley Wheezes, outside and in, including that elusive Nigel fellow who seems to have gone airborne again, photos of the Slug Club, Christmas party, the Trio relaxing in Ron's room at the Burrow, Draco (Tom Felton) in the Room of Requirement, and much much more. Enjoy!

Thanks to Celeutopia, all who emailed and SS.

These are great! Notice the Pygmy Puff on Ginny’s shoulder. Also, Fred and George’s store looks great! Helena Bonham Carter is so perfect for the Bellatrix role!

Harry/Ron/Hermione/Ginny…I must say the picture of the Trio in Ron’s bedroom is my favourite…but again it confuses me. I’m assuming it must be from the beginning of term, after Harry gets to the Burrow with Dumbledore because that’s the only time we see Hermione at the Burrow. She doesn’t go there for Christmas because she and ron have fallen out. I love it though, ron’s room is brilliant, and I love the view of the night sky outside. I like the picture of Harry and Ginny in the RoR too…the room looks perfect…complete chaos. The picture of everyone with their wands in the air is one I still haven’t managed to place. I assume they’re all looking at the Dark Mark (except Luna, who seems to have been sidtracted by something!) but why do they have their wands in the air? Plus, Hagrid’s in the crowd so they must have found Dumbledore already…I don’t get it!

Snape and Co….I love, love, LOVE the pictures at Spinner’s End…can I say how hot Snape looks?! His hair looks less greasy, but I like it. The pure emotion on his face in that shot with him and Bella is awesome! I wonder if that’s from when she’s questioning him about his loyalties. Still a tad put off by Bella casting the Dark Mark…didn’t Draco do that to lure Dumbledore back to Hogwarts? The fact that she’s up there with Greyback and the Carrows, looking down at the ground, makes me wonder whether we’ll see the Death Eaters invading Hogwarts before we see Harry and Dumbledore come back? I guess it could be after Dumbledore had died- it would explain why Greyback and the Carrows are looking down at the ground, and Bella may be casting the Dark Mark again to show that there HAS been a murder this time- but where is Snape? They should have all taken off running already.

I’m still not impressed with the locket because it looks nothing like it should, but I’ll get over it! And…I’ve rambled way too much now, so I’ll shut up!

Ok…it posted my third comment but not my first two…so here goes…

Oh my god, so many fantastic pictures! I promised myself I wouldn’t look at any more HBP stuff but I just couldn’t resist!

Ok…one thing at a time….

The bridge…wow, it looks like that is going to be a really great scene. Complete and utter destruction for the poor, unsuspecting Muggles! I know a lot of people (myself included) have had some doubts about this added scene, but it looks like it’ll be well worth it, and a great way of showing how Voldemort is effecting the Muggles too.

Lavender at the Gryffindor table…I love all the little details here, one being that Lavender herself is wearing Gryffindor socks! I think she looks perfect and I’m really looking forward to seeing her on screen. I love the look on Hermione’s face…a sort of “Oh Merlin, not her again!” kind of look. Also…Parvati…wow she has grown up well, she’s is beautiful!

The Slug Club pictures…I love the one of Hermione and Neville, it’s really sweet. I think Neville looks like he’s asking Hermione which spoon he’s supposed to be using. Though I am wondering why Neville is a waiter at the Christmas party? He was a member of the Slug Club so shouldn’t he be there as a guest?

Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes…All I can say is WOW. The exterior looks amazing. I love the added touch that the big statue of the man with the rabbit on his head and a top hat (which I assume moves so the hat reveals the rabbit) looks like Fred and George! I am kinda sad that the twins aren’t wearing their bright green dragon-hide suits, but they still look fab. I love that there is SO much going on in these scenes. it;s just how WWW should be, so busy all the time that it’s like absolute mayhem. It’s great to see things we recognise too (edible dark marks, anyone?). Harry looks absolutely tiny beside the twins! I like the shot of Nigel walking up the wall too. I assume those funky shoes he has on are another Weasley invention.

It’s great to see that they even kept Arnold in the film. I just listened to the Weasley Wizarding Wheezes scene again and remembered about him. One of Ginny’s few girly girl moments, I love it!
Is that Neville serving drinks at the Christmas party?? What kind of sense does that make?? Weird
