Finally!!!!!!!

They are finished! I hope this means will get some pictures and a teaser soon. The waiting has been so hard on all of us.

Thank you Emma and leaky for updating us!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Let’s get ready for the trailer, yeah!!!!

Avatar Image says:

This is fantastic news! Hopefully now Warner Brothers, having finished filming,will be more inclined to share photos and videos.

Avatar Image says:

I hope one of these days we’ll get to see the trailer

Avatar Image says:

If they’ve finished since the 17th then we should have sth new by now!!!!! Give us SOMETHING!!!! A picture at least!!! (a good, interesting, different picture, I mean)

Avatar Image says:

Wow, that was quick!! Time sure flies by! Now we have to wait for the post production to finish, which will take another 5-6 months. But I bet it’ll be great!! I Can’t Wait!!!!

Thanks Emma and Leaky!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Finally!! Now I’m seeing a ray of hope for a trailer!! Thanks a lot Emma and leaky for this bit of news!

Avatar Image says:

that awesome i can’t wait for the tralier to come out hopefuly it comes out in the next few day or so and if not hopefully some a new picture would be sweet to man this movies going to be awesome !!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Yep. I think it is likely we will. It’s been very quiet on the news front and usually quiet periods like this are followed by a storm of promo photos, so fingers crossed

Avatar Image says:

That was fast,that can only mean that the film will be short.I really hope not.They filmed only for 8 months.God I hope it’s atleast as long as Sorcerer’s Stone Or Goblet Of Fire.Please O Please let it not be as short like Order Of The Phoenix,which was onli 2 hrs and 8 min the rest of the ten min was credits.

Avatar Image says:

Omg it’s finished!!!

Like everyone else has said, bring on the teaser trailer now – we have waited too long already! Although preferably don’t release it when I’m in Spain without computer access… that would be incredibly annoying.

Avatar Image says:

been there,done that. I think we’ll see the trailer in June. can’t wait! good luck to Emma with hers A-levels. I know how hard it is,I’m on it too. and then-uni,here I come!

Avatar Image says:

Still no trailer?

Avatar Image says:

Filming for OotP,CoS and PoA was faster than HBP’s. Only GoF took 10 months and that was just because they were having lots of weeks for dancing and the tasks practising, stunt stuff etc.

Avatar Image says:

Nice one. Can’t wait for it.

Avatar Image says:

i cant believe they finished filming so fast, i hope they do things right. and that we get a trailer soon, i was mad we ditn get anything for Nania

Avatar Image says:

Way to go, Emma…thanks for keep us up to date, and good luck on those A-levels! That’s seriously hard studying, but you’ll get them, you always do! Bring on the trailer now, WB! We’re going nuts out here!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Lots of Luck with your A-levels Emma!!!

“principal photography on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was completed on Saturday, May 17.”

17th of May is my bday! :D

Good luck with the exams Emma =]

Avatar Image says:

It is about time… I just wish there was news on the trailer.

Avatar Image says:

The length of filming has nothing to do with the length of the movie. The kids are no longer kids, with child labour laws dictating how long they can spend working. Hence, the movies don’t take as long to make.

Also, for those of you baying for a trailer, the teaser for OOTP came out a few weeks after principal photography finished for the movie. It didn’t come out during the making of the film, why would it this time? The trailer will likely come in the next few weeks to a month.

I posted something similar to this on another thread a few days ago and it was deleted, dear Leaky. Why?

Avatar Image says:

Trailer, here we come!? Hopefully…

Avatar Image says:

Filming is complete. Isn’t it time to take down the “Now Showing” link for OotP Film on the Leaky home page and put up an HBP Film Countdown ticker instead?

Avatar Image says:

Why are they waiting so long for release? November 21st, thats around Thanksgiving! If we have to wait that long, then WB may as well give us several great trailers and plenty of photos to feed our appetite until November!

Avatar Image says:

God damn; I’m so excited to see what they’ve done with this film, that it’s aching in my tummy everytime I think about it! Can’t believe they’ve finished, They’ve got to be a bit sad; they’re second to last film together? ..

Yeah, Bring on the trailer! We’re seriously going crazy. And let’s see som Harry/Ginny in the trailer :D And some Tonks/Lupin! <3

Avatar Image says:

C’mon she plays Hermione, A Levels/NEWTs? you know she’ll rock those exams

Avatar Image says:

The movie is finished filming but still no trailer what is up with that??!

Avatar Image says:

It’s about time they said something. I was kind of mad when they said that about HBP not being attached to the narnia movie. Anyway hope we get some new HBP pictures in the next month and the trailer this summer. If the HP,HBP movie is coming out in November arent they going to do some more filming in September, October, amd maybe November? Oh and one more thing, HP, POA will be airing Saturday the 24 and they said that WB might show footage of HBP in between the commercials lets hope that’s true.

Avatar Image says:

It’s going to air on ABC family at like 6:00 or 7:00 somewhere around that time.

Avatar Image says:

awesome news , now WB has even less excuses for the lack of a trailer, teaser or otherwise or more pics released personally iwant to see how they handle the look of the inferius, that should be well worth seeing

Avatar Image says:

thats not true. i know for a fact they havent finished filming. maybe she has but not everyone else!

sorry to ruin it for everyone!

it is finishing in the next few days though.

Avatar Image says:

how about, can you please give us more info?

starfish, who said the WB might be airing footage during PoA?

Avatar Image says:

Don’t forget…a lot of these kids are getting older, and have to spend less time in school, so that might factor in to the quicker filming time.

Avatar Image says:

To Iamfez: The leaky cauldron told us when they told us that the U.S is going to air PoA Saturday the 24 and they said they might show footage of HP,HBP.

Avatar Image says:

OMFG… I can’t wait to see Severus Snape in the trailer and/or pictures! Go Alan Rickman!!!- ‘Bottle Shock’ looks so good!!!

Avatar Image says:

Awesome! We’d better get a trailer soon!

Avatar Image says:

Is it too early for the countdown clock Melissa?..lol

Avatar Image says:

doesnt it always seem like emma has exams all the time :S it doesnt make sence to have that many lol // but she still is a great actress and so is Rupert and Daniel, im so happy they finished filming, they are probably partying it up now haha

Avatar Image says:

YES!!!! If the the movie is finshed, then the trailer will (hopefully) be released soon!!!! I nearly died when i found out it wasn’t going to be with Narnia….. = ]

Avatar Image says:

teaser news: instead of Dark Knight, the trailer may be coming with Journey to the Center of the Earth (right now, I can’t confirm one or the other)

another highly unlikely, rumor: a “teaser spot” a la Da Vinci Code might be tagged on to Sex & the City, involving, surprise (not) Romilda Vane, Lavender, Ginny & Hermione.

trailer news: might be coming with Star Wars: The Clone Wars or online release in late September

[one of the above statements is a blatant lie, I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out]

Avatar Image says:

yeah, i nearly ruptured my spleen when i heard the tralier wasnt with narnia. and cmon, leaky, post a countdown timer! i started counting down the day i lieft the OotP theater! good reliable emma to update her site. i need of pixtures!!! vive xe

Avatar Image says:

yes! im so excited! i was so mad when the trailer wasnt with narnia, so this definately brings my hopes up.

Avatar Image says:

oh its great! thanku emma & leaky for updating now when we see its trailer?

Avatar Image says:

i really wish it would be out soon,, wanna check it out if its a lot better than the last movie…. the last movie was a disappointment for me… wanna see more of Ginny this time.. goodluck

Avatar Image says:

Aw, I’m gonna be on holiday from today until next Friday, I’ll probs miss all the photos and the teaser :( I hope you guys get them before I come back though!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, but then you’ll all moan there’s too much publicity etc….and it’s not what you thought it would be and they’ve missed this or that bit out.

It has been especially quiet this film though. I’m pretty much over HP now so it’ doesn’t really matter to me but it’ll be interesting to see the moany comments coming out, although most people in this site are nowhere near as bad as Mugglenet, I don’t even read the comments anymore, most are so rude and negative!!

Avatar Image says:

Gee wonder how long it is going to take for the WB to release them i think we wont get the trailer until the Get Smart movie

Avatar Image says:

i like u very much . u look so preaty and blossom.

Avatar Image says:

umm emma always has exams ? everytime i read an article from her site it always says shes to busy getting ready for her A level exams ?? lol theres no way there is that many// no effence to her but i think people should get their facts straight, maybe shes just not reponding cuzz she has a life lol shes rich, and ya we all get that shes smart so stop pointing out her exams lol sorry i just felt the need to say something// no effence to her at all shes really gorgues nice girl and a good actress, i just wnat people to stop saying it… and maybe her too lol..

Avatar Image says:

All the complain gets old. nobody made anybody read this news that was posted on Emma’s official site, then posted here.

She’s just explaining to her fans why news is slow. she’s not ignoring them, she’s just busy studing.

I’m beginning to think HP fans are the biggest whiners on the net. I’m glad to see twilight kicking HP’s butt in movie hype. Even at IMDB twilight is the #10 most anitcipated. HP is number #33. LOL. Maybe I’m not the only one tired of the complaining.

Avatar Image says:

Oh GOD ! I am dying to see the pictures and the trailer

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:
