July 04, 2009, 01:08 PM
Just when you think we can't possibly get any more excited for the new Harry Potter film, comes a real treat as seen in the new HBP "First Look" at Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. NOTE: SPOILERS GALORE New funny moments with Ron, Lavender, Slughorn and more can be seen in part one here via Youtube. However it is part two that is the most striking of the new video feature. Delightful new footage and clips of Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall are shown along with funny scenes from the Slug club and party, however it is the darker moments of the storyline highlighted here in part two that are the most fascinating. New clips of a demented Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) are shown taunting a truly wonderful Alan Rickman as the enigmatic Severus Snape ("do the unbreakable vow!") and more of the former Potionsmaser at work. Notable however is footage seen near the very end of the feature when we witness a frail and dying Dumbledore atop the Astromony tower facing a terrified Draco, with Dumbledore saying "Draco years ago I knew a boy who made all the wrong choices." wow. As reported several times previously, HBO will be airing this program many times in the next coming days and weeks; full schedule of air times on the cable channel can be found here.
Thanks so much to Jonah and the scores of readers who emailed!
Cormac looks freaking hilarious, LOL. I love how he caught the fly.
I’ve uploaded in HD version in .wmv format. It’s weighs in at about 390MB. It was the smallest I could get it without sacrificing quality.
OMG!..WHAT HAVE I DONE!!!??? NOOOOO … i cant belive it…i now think i have seen over half the movie…. >.<
I love any behind the scenes footage! I wish they showed us more on the DVDs…I absolutely cannot wait for this film! I woke up this morning thinking that there was only 5 more days until the film…and then I remembered there’s an entire week and a half!
No no no…I won’t watch it. All these previews are just wonderful, but I don’t want to watch them, I want to wait…wait until the 15th.
:((((((((( I watched it, and it is AMAZING, AMAZING….I couldn’t resist.
I just had to watch both of them… and WOW!! Tom and Alan look spectacular in the film… I’m so excited! :)
I love it! The part where Ron hugs Slughorn is classic! =D
It’s being hard to keep my promise of not watching anything more before the movie. I couldn’t resist,so I’ve seen it.IT WAS FABULUS!
Oh, I won’t watch it, No I haven’t seen any of trailers and short parts and I am going to keep myself like this only for 10 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Watching this was torture! But great, nonetheless.
Man, I have this saved on my dvr and have watched it several times already— I can’t wait for it to come out, it looks like they have balanced all the complicated facets of the book and made something that will be fun, sad, magical, and serious. Just like it should be!
no more clips please!
i don’t want to see the whole movie before it comes out!
