Looks like the GOF (bleh) poster. At least it’s Dumbledore and Harry.

Avatar Image says:

Such a pity it’s not real :-( Saw it yesterday and it was so moving I almost cried!

Avatar Image says:

Thought so…. Still a pretty cool poster though- kudos to the maker!

Avatar Image says:

that looks fantastic… whoever did that is amazing!!! its just so like… ughhh fantastic!! good job to the maker

Avatar Image says:

I’ve been telling people it’s fake for days and no one would believe me! So thanks TLC! it’s a nice poster though.

Avatar Image says:

Well, it looks really nice. No wonder people mistook it for a real one – I would’ve done that for sure. But the tagline, it’s just… I know this is fake and all, but if they mess up the line “I’m not worried Harry, I’m with you” in the actual film then I’m going to be seriously mad at the scriptwriters. That’s the only thing that made me doubt this poster, the tagline “I’m safe tiwh you. Harry.” I dont want something like that in the actual thing. Please WB, don’t do something like that.

Avatar Image says:

i thought it was pretty obvious that it was a fake. i saved it anyways ‘cause i like it.

Avatar Image says:

I haven’t seen it. But I expect, we won’t see a legit poster, for another few months. Like maybe in May? Too bad, though. I hear it’s really nice.

Avatar Image says:

Too bad it’s fake.. I like it for the mood of HBP :)

Avatar Image says:

Very very convincing that it could be made by WB, except they didn’t put in the exact date, which mad me think it was fake. Still an amazing picture, its my wallpaper, and I’m going to save it to my files soon!

Avatar Image says:

Oooh! To bad it’s fake! It looks really cool. Kudos to the maker of it!

Avatar Image says:

WOW, it looks so real!!!! very cool, but i hope that’s not one of the tag lines for the movie though!!!- of topic but when dose Melissa’s book come out??? thanks for any help.

Avatar Image says:

dumbledore wears his “hat” but in the sneak peak he doesn’t so..it’s a fake

Avatar Image says:

Looks pretty good for a fake. I really like that picture… is it a recent still from the movie?

Avatar Image says:

Margoooo no it’s not a still from HBP. The sillouettes of Harry & Dumbledore are from OOTP promotional material and the pretty background image is just a random picture.

Avatar Image says:

wow! it looks great no wonder people thought it looked it real, I would have thought that too, though it dosent look like the type of scene that WB would choose for the poster.

Avatar Image says:

Well, I thought it was real. Lol.

Avatar Image says:

Wow! That poster is really good!!! I agree with Specer about how real it looked!! Welldone to however made it!!!

Avatar Image says:

Whoever did that did an incredible job on that, thanks to whoever created it. It’s a much better poster than the likes of those for movies 2-5 (for the most part), and Warner Brothers should hire that person who created it to do the HBP posters. Or bring back Drew Struzan, who did an incredible job on the first movie’s poster.

Avatar Image says:

Nice poster though…

Avatar Image says:

Aww. I like it though. Does make me wonder what the actual WB poster is going to look like :D

Avatar Image says:

WOW….great fake. Hope the WB ones are as good :-)

Avatar Image says:

Wow. I would have believed it. Ha (:

Avatar Image says:

too bad it’s not real…it looks amazing!!

Avatar Image says:

i made it.

Avatar Image says:

Well, im sure you didnt mean to put a hat on dumbledore’s head when clearly there was no hat in the preview/sneak peek included in the 5th DVD, savannah.

Avatar Image says:

take your own advice sav. ans please dont start a commotion in here. i was only offering friendly suggestions.

Avatar Image says:

Fake Or Not the shot is hot and what they done with it is mad cool,.

Avatar Image says:

Even if it is “fake” thought has gone into putting it togeter and does captuer the mood of that part of the book. I do admire people who can manipulate pix it is an awesome gift.

Avatar Image says:

It’s a shame is a fake, because it is awesome, except for the messed up quote. It’s “I’m not worried, I’m with you” . I hope WB makes a similar poster nudge nudge wink wink

Avatar Image says:

Is a double message. The Poster is like Brokeback Mountain, and J.K. say than Dumby was gay =X

Avatar Image says:

OMG! I also almost cried when I saw it. I think it’s apsolutely perfect.WB should take it for one of the official posters. Looking at the poster it’s like I’m reading the book 6. GREAT JOB

Avatar Image says:

It looks real! It’s very good!!

Avatar Image says:

Well I liked it. Nice job to whoever made it. Nothing wrong with a little fanart.

Avatar Image says:

Not gonna lie, that’s pretty awesome. I wish it were real.

Avatar Image says:

very nice and it could easily pass muster a real HBP poster upon first inspection right down to the paraphrased book quote which film makers a famous for doing as taglines from movies based on books

Avatar Image says:

Not going with the crowd on this one. I don’t like it at all. It doesn’t look at all like what I imagined the entrance to the cave would be. Way to large an opening and wasn’t it supposed to face the sea? Nope, don’t like anything about it.

Avatar Image says:

That poster is fantastic! Too bad it’s fake…

Avatar Image says:

Nice! Rockin’ poster! What if everyone still likes this one better when WB does release the official one…ironic.

Avatar Image says:

It’s alright. I guess. It seems like it would be kind of simple to make with any professional paint program though..

Avatar Image says:

I’m thinking this poster will be more moving than what we get in the actual movie. Somehow I just can’t see them getting it right. The only time the emotional side of the story has been done well is in PoA (not the ‘he was their friend’ part…).

Cuaron could just DO it right. e.g. when Harry slams into his room after blowing up Marge, the way the camera moves toward the picture of his parents (OK, John Williams’s music helps a great deal here too) and also my FAVOURITE scene in all the movies which is the Lupin/Harry Patronus teaching scene. David Thewlis of course was exemplary, but Dan was excellent too. That scene is better than anything in Ootp, even the Harry and Sirius scenes. I think Yates messed it up when Sirius died. It’s hardly clear what the heck even happens! And Lupin is holding Harry but Harry’s not even trying to get to the Veil. Crazy.

Avatar Image says:

It’s nice.. one thing, though- is that what Dumbledore looks like in this movie? The hat makes him look more like Gandalf!

Avatar Image says:

Yo…......dis is so damn good!!!!! i luv d person who made it….........thanx man! this is amazing…......it’s soooo touching and looks real! i hope d poster wb choses is smthin like dis…......touchin and intriguing. luv ya…......whoeva made dis

Avatar Image says:

It’s good to know that this poster is fan-made, but it actually looks rather good. WB may want to hire this person. Whoever it is, they definitely have the pulse of what moves an HP fan emotionally.

Avatar Image says:

We seriously need to have HBP and DH posters/cover done by yhr PS/SS guy (Sturzan?) again. That first poster is BEAUTIFUL!

HEY MELISSA OR ANY OTHER LEAKY STAFF MEMBER! ASK THEM WHY THEY STOPPED DOINHAND DRAWN POSTERS!!!

Avatar Image says:

It’s a nice poster. The emotion is there, but the cave is not dark enough for me. I always thought the cave should be pitch black, and I may need to read HBP a 4th time, but I was certain the cave scene took place at night. Just not dark enough for me. The darker, the creepier, and I want this scene to be creepy scary!

The maker has the right idea. WB needs to make at least one poster of the cave or something Dumbledore and Harry. And we need to see one with Draco and Snape. Another with the potions book featured. And a Harry and Ginny one because it is the most important romantic relationship. We will probably get a Ron, Hermione, and Lavender one too, but that is not as important. Oh, and we’ll get a classic trio one.

Avatar Image says:

I agree with Eriskay. Artwork is a nice photoshop job but the tag line was dumb even if it is a quote from the book.

Avatar Image says:

I think the poster itself is really awfully done to be honest, but I get why you guys like it. Even though it’s not very artistically appealing the message it’s trying to convey is very emotional. Probably more emotional than the actual film will be. It sounds like the HBP movie is going to be 90% high school romance doesn’t it? And they’ll probably stick some happy go lucky music on the end and everyone will LOVE it. Ugh. No thanks.

Avatar Image says:

:O My bad.

Avatar Image says:

The silhouette of Dumbledore looks like Richard Harris, may he rest in peace.

And, please, let the “I am with you” quote remain as written in HBP. It is one of the most moving messages of the series!

Avatar Image says:

It is beautiful, though I would prefer a more “tempest tossed” sea outside the cave entrance. I agree with the posters who mentioned the strong emotional impact, also with those who disapproved of the unfortunately misquoted tagline. Leaky readers are pretty sharp to have noticed so many minute mistakes in this fan art poster.

I can’t wait to see the real thing!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

wow! It’s really really cool!

Avatar Image says:

Wow…I cannot believe that it’s a fake! I’d seen that poster just yesterday and I got really excited….whoever make it did a fantastic job!

Avatar Image says:

This poster is awesome, too bad its not real

Avatar Image says:

wow. it looks great! i thought it was real. :D

Avatar Image says:

Wonderful poster! I would’ve mistaken this for an official poster if i hadn’t seen it initially via this news post. It really is an excellent poster, and a good portrayal of the dark, foreboding, serious, and very epic mood of HBP. On the flipside, the tagline would have been a good oppurtunity to get the point of the movie across, but it is not very well utilized in this case. Plus, I don’t think that is an actual line from the book. The screenwriters should really try to stick with canon material for the overarching themes of the movie, which would be taking lines directly from the novels.

That being said, I would love to be the creator of this poster! Good publicity, you know?

On a completely unrelated note, I’m so excited for this movie. I know they’ll do a wonderful job.

Avatar Image says:

I’m with Eriskay, the words should be real (even if the pic is a fake): it should say, “I’m not worried, Harry, I’m with you”. Why do people think they can come up with better words than Jo?!

Avatar Image says:

I like it!:) WB should hire them to help them make posters:)

Avatar Image says:

Whoever made this poster did a very good job! I saved it because I liked it, however, I was pretty sure that it was a fake from the moment I saw it. If you notice the date, it is obvious that it has been tampered with! Anyway, congratulations to the maker!

Avatar Image says:

I agree with Eriskay!

Beautiful, lovely, incredible poster….but the quote was awful. I cringed.

Avatar Image says:

They must be inside the cave looking out. That picture is an outdoor one. If they’d used a better picture, then maybe I’d like it better. It reminds me of the very effective GoF silhouette poster.

Avatar Image says:

well i love that poster!!!!is fabulous!BUT this is fake,why????anyway i can understand the maker we all looking forward to see the REAL poster!!!please post the REAL POSTER SOOOOOOOOOON!!!

Avatar Image says:

i think this is a pretty good fake.. u had me fooled.. cant wait to see some real posters and pictures from half blood prince movie

Avatar Image says:

It must be fake at this stage, but it is a good one. I like it.

Avatar Image says:

Well, I’ve seen it, now. It IS a great looking poster. Just what one might imagine the official poster may look like. Sad, as many have said, that it’s a fake. We’ll just have to wait, I guess, like I said earlier. It’s too early for an official poster.I agree with Matthew. WB SHOULD hire this person, whom ever it may be, as this person has a good eye for the story…..we’ll see!

Avatar Image says:

It had me fooled. =)

Avatar Image says:

That’s a pretty cool poster-but that quote just didn’t seem right… Great pic though. I wonder when any official posters will come out?

Avatar Image says:

Fantastic, gives me chills! So much more artistic than the real ones.

Avatar Image says:

It may be fake, but it’s really cool!

Avatar Image says:

Look’s pretty good to me. I like it also,and it takes you to that part in the book.

Avatar Image says:

Even though it’s a fake, I rather like it.

Avatar Image says:

hey to people who criticize it, i disagree, its a well produced poster, and i think its moving

Avatar Image says:

whooh seriously its fake??? It looks like it the real thing who ever made it probs to you!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

wow. whoever made THAT is one talented graphic designer… i mean wow.

Avatar Image says:

It’s a nice poster. Shame its not real though.

Avatar Image says:

would Warner Bros be so kind and buy this poster from the one who made it, to use it in stead of the probably overloud and screaming poster they had in mind.

But that would bring an other laysuit, because Mary Grandpre is entitled to the royalties for the idea which stems from the illustration of HBP ch 26.

Pitty it was tooo good to be true.

Avatar Image says:

It still looks cool even if its not real… I can’t wait till the poster comes out! It better be more interesting than the ones for Ootp. I loved the movie, but the posters weren’t that great.

Avatar Image says:

whoever made that should definetly be in the business. That is amazing- I was very, very moved by it. At a second glance you can see the fan-made qualities of it. Where did they get the silhouettes of Harry and Dumbledore? Are they from another movie? I loved it- great job, whoever made it. I wouldn’t mind it being a legit poster :D

Avatar Image says:

It’s a good poster though. :)

Avatar Image says:

Honestly, like they wouldn’t give this to some big company/website so everyone could see it? Why would they just let THE official HBP poster go undetected like this thing … plus, its clearly pics from previous movies. shakes head

Avatar Image says:

I must admit that it does look like some of the fake ones I have seen on IMDB but at the same time it is very touching, i agree with thee above though they will probably not make one that obvious. Is that really what the cave background looks like though?

Avatar Image says:

It looks so real! I goota give this guy props.

Avatar Image says:

It looks so real! I gotta give this guy props.

Avatar Image says:

Better then most I’ve seen. Very nice. Good job to the artist!

Avatar Image says:

That’s actually pretty excellent. The picture quality isn’t great, it’s grainy around the text, but the design is awesome.

Avatar Image says:

Wow! I wish it wasn’t fan made, it’s excellent and really moving.

Avatar Image says:

That is SWEET! It looks like the rest of the posters for the rest of the movies, and i wish it was real. The quote is so touching!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah the only problem with it is that there’s no hyphen or dash between Half and Blood in the title “Half-Blood Prince.”

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!! That poster is sooo cool!! I wish it were real! I love the tagline. That is so awsome! Good job to whoever made it!

Avatar Image says:

wow thats a pretty good fake though, i like it

Avatar Image says:

I love it.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, awesome poster! I put it as my computer wallpaper (it looks squished, but whatever) it could definitely pass as the real deal. I like the pic they chose for the cave, its something I could see WB using. I mean, I like the line “I not worried Harry, I’m with you.” better than the line they used (it’s a tad more powerful) but still, kudos to whoever made it for there amazing skills in photoshop. If only I could do something so neat!

Avatar Image says:

I think WB should buy it off the artist. It’s fantastic!

Avatar Image says:

Excellent fake. WB should hire that fan to work in their advertising department

Avatar Image says:

That’s pretty darn good. I like the quote at the top, but it would be sad to pick that one, seeing as how Dumbledore dies.

Avatar Image says:

The poster is good, but i still dont get why some of you think it will be a kid romance film…It is a major part of the school life this year, but you really dont think it will have the ending like it should after the mood of OOTP? I mean when the fight begins and all the way to the last line it will be intense and emotional…I cant see a happy ending to this one and I am hoping for an ending that will raise the tention and set things up for DH. The only way i can see a smile at the end if they finally put Bill in and the whole wedding happens…nice poster once again :)

Avatar Image says:

I thought it was wonderful and very moving…

Moreso, because Dumbledore dies…

Avatar Image says:

For a fake, it’s much better than the real ones have been, wish the picture really was from the movie. The lighting/mood is great. I’m not a big fan of the fake quote, but still.

Avatar Image says:

it’s a pretty cool picture, but i guess wat would b super cool if it was a real poster

Avatar Image says:

Warner Brothers should learn from fans, fan posters like this are much better than their posters. Their posters just have the faces of the actors, they don’t have a meaning, beauty or spirit. This fake poster is beautiful and it has the HBP book spirit with the line “I’m not afraid Harry, I’m with you”. It would be so awesome it the real poster includes this line, it’s one of my favorite lines of all HP books. It would be beautiful if the official poster would be just Harry and Dumbledore.

Avatar Image says:

Okay then. I’ve been fooled. It was too good to be true. I like it though.

Avatar Image says:

Wow!!!!!!!! I thought it was really cool!!!!!!!!!!!!! It would be really good as the actual poster too!!!

Avatar Image says:

Nice poster, pity it’s fake

Avatar Image says:

Wow. that poster is amazing. i still cannot believe dumbledore is gay! it was like holy crap! but amazing i dont read the books but think hary potter is really interesting i might read it later. im rly interested in manga <3. lol so um if any of you wanna talk to me just go to habbo.com and like um f/r Zyurek1995 and also if you play youtube plz plz plz f/r FMAEdwardFMA and also deathnote and Fullmetal ALchemist rules!!

Avatar Image says:

i like it, though. yeah, that its Harry and Dumbledore is sweet.

Avatar Image says:

I love that poster! Even thogh it’s not real, it would be cool if it was though, but I bet the real poster will look something like that anyway. But when i saw it i almost cried(when i didnt know it was fake)

Avatar Image says:

Amazing job..Couldn’t believe that it wasn’t real utill I looked at the date bit.

Avatar Image says:

I figured this was a fake. seeing as the other 5 posters have had most of the characters on them. funny thing though, i just asked Matt Lewis if it was real. HAHA i’m going to feel like an idiot when he tells me no.

Avatar Image says:

cool poster it kinda looks like the cave scene
