We have a collection of videos from the recent press launch and premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince today in London, England.

First up is this video montage shot on the rainy red carpet today, including new interview clips with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. You can also see footage of Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, David Bradley, Natalia Tena, Evanna Lynch and many more of the cast at the event in Leicester Square, London. A second video containing interviews with Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, plus video of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling signing autographs for many fans can be seen here.

Also yesterday, a press conference was held in London before the premiere. Courtesy of CBBC Newsround, we can now watch a lengthy portion of the conference here in our video galleries. A second video from the Associated Press can be seen here.

I wish I had been able to attend the premiere. Despite the weather, it still looks like it would have been worthwhile to see!

There were a lot of people. o.O I didn’t realize that there’d be THAT much. But anyway, they all looked great. Jo looked really pretty! As well as Bonnie.

“Most people on the internet have too much time on their hands.”
Dan said it, not me. :P

But yeah, I’d be bored out of my brain having to do press for a film of this size, because all you do is repeat yourself, really. No one asks drastically different questions.
