HBO First Look at HBP: New Snape and Unbreakable Vow, Comedy Quidditch More

HBP Film

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!

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.

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!

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!

"I shouted at you before you left!" Mrs. Weasley said, starting to sob. "It's all I've been thinking about! What if You-Know-Who had got you, and the last thing I ever said to you was that you didn't get enough O.W.L.s? Oh Fred... George..."
