At the request of Warner Bros. these images have been removed.
Amazing. First to post :)
1st to post?
I love Ron’s room! Finally some official pictures. Looks like WB are getting their act together!
Nice pics !
But we want the trailer !
Fantastic! It’s great to finally get some pictures!
Looks good to me.
Wow, if WB is getting around to releasing photos, then the trailer can’t be too far behind!!! (Keeps fingers crossed)
Harry must be looking for a bezoar in potions class or something … It looks a lot like it. And those bottles definitely look like potions.
RON’S ROOM LOOKS AMAZING, BTW. I love how they all are just sitting there! SO awesome. And Rupert looks so fricken hot, it’s not even possible someone could be that good looking! :DDDD Oh, and Dan looks handsome. :] & so does Tom . WHOO!
wow, loving the snape and malfoy pic BUT…. WE WANT TRAILER!!!!
1st to post?
I love Ron’s room! Finally WB are getting their act together!
Awesome!! They look really cool, especially Ron’s room. But, I want to see the trailer!!!
This can only mean there are some good things yet to come. Yay. Thanks Sue and all of Leaky.
Excellent. Fab pics. Warner Bros are starting to redeem themselves.
Awesome! rons room looks awesome!
i really hope the trailer comes out soon.
like really soon.
YES YES YES!awesome pic. especially the trio.its totally awesome. Its the best pic so far. love rons room! they all look awesome! HBP will be the best so far!
I love Ron’s Room. Did anyone notice Hedwig sitting in the window? It makes me cry anytime I see her now. :(
The girl who played Hermione was cute as a little kid, but she’s not aging well! Also her acting is BAD! Look for the trailer to be attached to Journey to the Center of the Earth (july 11)!
OMG!!! I LOVE that foto of the trio in ron’s room..it looks amazing! ron seems much older than the others! isn’t that sexyy?! OMMGGG!
HELLO Draco. It is good to see Draco (Tom) get some love finally he was hardley in GOF and OOTP.
Oh dear lord. Those pics are just fabulous!
The Snape and Draco one makes me choke up slightly. And Rons room looks like a Den! Soo cosy looking!
Thak you Sue!!
Yay!!! some pictures.. now all we need is the trailer.. Hurry up WB!!!
Now all we need is a POSTER AND TEASER!
AHHHHHHHHHH…..I love them…. but I want some GINNY!!!!!!
Those pics are sooo amzingly cool, i’m getting really hyper now!!!!!! Rons room looks really good, its how i imagined it to be. CHUDLEY CANNONS orange!!
Love, love, love the Trio picture in Ron’s bedroom. Just lovely.
I totally disagree with Kitkat’s opinion of Emma Watson on both counts. I appreciate some photos, it is definitely about time the fans had something to discuss.
the first pic is false!!!
Oooh! Cool pics! I love the one of the trio in Ron’s room. I’m also glad to see a larger version of the “Harry looking in drawer” pic. I wonder…In the pic, you can see that there is a similar looking shelf, holding potion bottles. Is the pic perhaps from Harry’s detention with Snape after the sectumsempra incedent? I hope it is. It will be awesome to see in the movie.
I wonder if Draco’s going to be on the DVD cover this time around.
Finally!!! im so happy right now, ron looks hot :)
Ooh. I totally forgot about the dvd cover. Nice point Slither. I hope he’s on the cover! He got totally HOTTER. ;DDD
the one with draco and snape looks photoshoped tho.l
sweet pics and about time WB, okay for the pic of draco walking away from snape, can’t with out pouring through HBP place it in the story line as it seems to be in the day time. for the trio its my guess this is when harry is telling them about what he did with dumbledore,or about the prophecy as both take place at the burrow even though inthe book they happen in fred and george’s old bedroom, moving them to Ron’s would not hurt anything really. and the last one the one that solves the questions for the previous closer up shot of it , it obviously harry inthe student store cupboard looking for a bezoar to show slughorn in class
Photoshopped from what d’you think? I just think Draco is meant to be out of focus and blurred by motion as he walks away. Plus we haven’t seen any parts of that picture before.
I LOVE it when the pictures slowly start to pour out!
I LOVE the second picture .yayy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
just what i’ve been waiting 4 , and the trailer of course!
this is soo exciting. i love the one with the trio in the bedroom(maybe ron’s?) it’s so neat. can’t wait for the trailer
Slither is that a real Ron/Draco picture. Those are my two favourite guys in the movies and I’d love to see the larger photo.
omg this is amazing it makes me want to see the film even more warner brothers please stop teasing me and hurry up and reveal the trailor as i believe everyone in the world is patiently waiting, keep sending new pics though as its so interesting until they do show the trailor
p.s these are the best so far so send some more :)
thanks for keeping me posted by displaying on leaky
Chris; the pic is from here: http://wicked-visions.livejournal.com/87270.html#cutid1
And not a real picture, unfortunately…
You’re like the third person who’s asked me that here too. haha. :)
Emma’s Hairstyle changes in every movie. it’s beginning to bug me
I figure that’s Harry looking for the bezoar to save Ron…
Ron’s room is uber-cool! I would SO live there… I’m guessing that scene is during the summer… perhaps when Harry’s telling them about the prophecy?
Now I’m excited. :)
OMG!!! Those are awsome!!!! I luv them both!!!Especially the 1st one!! I am a big draco fan!! Cant wait for half-blood!!But I need a trailer like right now!!!!
Dan and Rupert’s haircuts change every film too. ;-)
Stella: if he’s looking for the bezoar, it looks like he’s taking his time to do so, LOL! XD
Ugh. Snape and Draco. Just… WIN. Brilliant. I wouldn’t have any other actors playing those roles. Those two are the only ones I trust with them, haha :D
Great photos! I like this new trio pic better than the other. I know it’s from half blood prince, butthe way they’re sitting and discussing something it reminders me of them planning to leave to burrow in Deathly Hallows!
I also believe that is Harry looking for the bezoar. The drawer he is looking in looks to be part of a storage trunk of some sort, the door of which is open and has bottles on shelves. You can see a handle on the side of the trunk. It is probably Slughorn’s private stock of ingredients. Well, that’s what I think it is. :D
I also think that the picture of Draco walking away from Snape could be when they leave the party and Snape has a talk with Draco whilst Harry is listening under the invisibility cloak. Again, just thinking what it could be. :) I am so glad to finally see some pictures and hope that soon we will have more.
I just noticed that in the trio picture, Harry’s not wearing any shoes. He must’ve just woken up.
Curious, very curious.
This is quite cool, but I wish they were high-res.
YodatheHobbit That is exactly what I thought about the picture in Ron’s Bedroom… It is like it is taken out of Deathly Hallows
I think that pic of Dan (Harry) is when he’s in detention with Snape. The cards were brought in by Filch, so he’d carry them in a case. And there are the potion bottles in the background.
And Ron’s room. That window looks really fake. What’s on or behind the middle pane (the white thingy)?
ookay, so i am LOVING the draco/snape picture!
i think it might be of that part after snape takes draco out of the christmas party and is trying to get draco to let him help with his mission but and then draco gets mad and walks away. thats just my guess, though. :]]
also, the harry/ron/hermione pic is okay too. his room is alot cuter than i pictured it, but its nice none-of-the-less. i also agree wholeheartedly with those who said ron looks AMAZING. note his arm muscles? sighs and faints
For the picture of Harry at the cabinet. That cabinet has a handle on the side and it has an “S” up near the top- so Isn’t more likely a trunk and perhaps this belongs to Slughorn?
I am guessing it’s the moment- straight from the book- in Suggy’s office when Ron is still suffering from Romilda’s chocolates and Slughorn sends Harry over to fetch the antidotes for the love potion. While he’s getting that- he would notice a bezaor or two in Slughorn’s things. Right before Ron drinks the poison mead.
izziewitch the white thing is Hedwig.
yay! this is so gud and this is how the flood of pictures started with the past two films, a few every few days and soon they will (hopefully) GIVE US A DAMN TRAILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone looks amazing, hot and poised. It poignant to see the trio sitting together in Ron’s room, they appear to be so comfortable with on another and with their characters. These films just keep getting better. Can’t wait for the trailer. Maybe they’ll release the trailer in September when Dan comes to Broadway. Just a thought.
I agree nikkip. I think it’s most likely Slughorn’s trunk .
Good god, Dan looks majorly yummy! I love the way the lights are on him- his arms look wowza and his shoulders…gah! We NEED this picture in high res! He’s so pale, yet he does have hairy arms lol.
on another note, it’s funny how they always seem to have Harry and Hermione talking/looking at each other! Makes sense, seeing as how Hermione would likely have a lot of questions lol.
I think these “leaked” trickles of photos are a WB campaign to get us into a frothy of anticiPATION!
OMG Draco looks scared of what he’s going through, nice pics of the trio I love them.
Abs92, no, no. I know that’s Hedwig! I mean on the lefthand side of the window….
COOL COOL COOL AMAZING O_O
Well well, its Hedwig you little naughty girl! 8)
Finally some pics. Hope the trailer cames out soon. I am starving for more!
‘Burrow’ room looks great!!
HOMG , I am so excited!
I was in a really sad mood today realizing that there is no Potter at all this summer for me. And this just completely picked me back up =]
Hah! I love how right in the corner of the trio pic, you can see a trap door. I love that that’s how you get into the room (Ron’s room, I’m assuming.) My best friend growing up had a room like that at the top of the house—We had so much fun there! Brings back memories.
The one with Harry looking in the cabinet is so much clearer. It looks like the potions lesson where he’s searching for the bezoar, or possible at the time he’s searching for the bezoar to save Ron.
The one with the trio sitting on the floor looks like the scene where Harry’s arrived at the Burrow and he’s telling Ron and Hermione about the bit of prophecy and taking lessons with Dumbledore.
Of course the one with Snape and Draco looks like Draco storming off, but I don’t think it’s after Sluggie’s party, as the corridor is lit with daylight, rather than candles and flames.
I think the trio pics in Ron’s room is when he tells them the prophecy
AWESOME! Now let’s hope WB releases the pics in HQ, that the trailer date comes soon, and that the trailer comes REALLY soon. I am soooo anxious for more HBP stuff!
oooooohhh so happy and they are all so yummy
Well, if the Snape / Draco picture is indeed the one during Slughorn’s party, that would also make sense with the “worried” Harry picture, because it is also daylight in that picture.
Fabulous! The one of the trio at the Burrow is brilliant.
I’m thrilled to finally have some good HBP pics, but this has to be the most bizarre marketing ever. Not that I’m complaining, mind you (again, I’m just happy to finally have the pics), but it’s weird. First, several “unofficial” pictures quietly appeared out of nowhere on various random HP forums. And now, we get some officially released pictures on a Sunday morning of all times, with no announcement or fanfare at all. How odd.
Still, I’m ecstatic that the flood of HBP pics finally seems to be starting!
Ha! I love the way Harry and Ron are looking at Hermione in the one of the one of them in Ron’s room. She’s got this stubborn, antagonistic expression, and both boys look thoroughly exasperated, like they’ve been trying to reason with her and are at the point where they’ve lost patience and are about to say, “Look, you stupid cow…” Hee.
Pics, yay, pics!
But goshdarnit, WB, you’re not supposed to make me think Snarry is a plausible ship.
Er, where are you getting that, fishscale? Snape and Harry aren’t even in any of the same pics. ???
And sorry, but I’m in the Neither Alan Rickman Nor Snape Are Even Slightly Sexy camp. I really do NOT get all the squeeing over him. But that’s just me.
@isabella T….They wouldn’t look as if they were getting older [which they are with great panache]...also, I’ve often noticed that EVERYON [you and I included] wears their hair differently at different times! Jus sayin’ : Great to see the first REAL photos, trickling in! Trailer….plz!
@Ashley McC: I AM in the “Alan Rickman Is An Amazingly Gorgeous Man And A Heck Of An Actor Camp” I’ve never seen an actor go from Handsome 19th Century Col. To Sleazy Dark Professor. To Creepy [yet handsome] 19th Century Judge…with such grace and….well, he’s good looking!!!!!! YAY pictures..can the Trailer be far behind [I hope not} Maybe they’re going to “skip” a teaser all together! [Hmmmmm]
Thank you for sharing these, Sue! I think our prayers have been answered at last.
lol, I meant snape/draco. And that’s precisely it! I don’t find either attractive, nor the characters – but if they’re going to stare at on another in smouldering fashions, what’s a girl to do?
I have to admit, I don’t see what’s so fantastic about the one with Snape and Draco. They’re both blurry (Draco more so than Snape, but still), you can’t really see Draco’s face, and Snape is standing there with the same old glower we’ve seen a gazillion times already in previous HP movies and pictures. And is Tom going to wear that suit throughout the entire movie? Nah, can’t say I’m impressed with that picture.
But the one of the trio in Ron’s room. Oh my god, THE ONE OF THE TRIO IN RON’S ROOM!!! I love all the vibrant colors, and the details: Hedwig and Pig perched behind their respective boys, Harry and Hermione in their PJs, Harry’s bare feet, the expressions on their faces, the slanting roof, the trapdoor in the corner. SO MUCH LOVE for that picture.
Bahahaha crotch shot of Ron! lol wow when I saw Ron’s room or the Burrow room I actually smiled and squealed a bit! It was amazing! YESSSSS!!!
Lol Harry looks suicidal in that list pic. MAYBE THEY’RE KILLING OFF HARRY IN HBP?? That could stir up some controversy…
I notice there’s a countdown on the front page. When are we going to get a widget? My desktop is sad.
Love the new HBP countdown on the top left, but, heh, “arrives” is spelled wrong.
I bet that’s Ron’s room! I love it, if it is that! It’s all orange!
Love the pictures. The one where harry is looking into the filing cabnet I think it is where he is doing his detention for snape because he has a sad look on his face because he had to miss the final a quidditch match. And if you look on the filing cabnet you can see a peice of parchment on it. The clue word is filing cabnet. Or that can be where harry is looking for the potions book. Where do you all see the trap door at? The one with the trio in Ron rooms is where harry is telling hermione and ron about the prophecy and about the private lessons he will be taking with dumbledore once he gets back to school. The one with snape and draco I think is where draco and snape where talking when harry over hears them.
OK…..LOVE LOVE LOVE the Snape/Draco pic…. Ron’s room is awesome. Makes me wish they remade the second movie….. Trio in the common room is awesome, too….yay, HBP’s book!
I hope we get to see some pictures of harry and ginny. Ron and Lavender, luna, neville, slughorn, and harry and dumbledore in the pensive.
About time!! WHOOOHOOOOOO!!! Awesome pics, that made my day! Trailer! Trailer! Trailer! Everybody! Shout it out, maybe they’ll get the hint… :)
love ron’s room and the snape/malfoy one (:
thats not a fliling cabinet ist slughorn’s potions kit
harry’s getting the bezoar :D
To zoeymash: That is a filing cabinet. Read the paragraph again it says filing cabinet.
oh the picture spamage thats coming _
and i really, really like Ron’s room
I know I’m alone here, but I don’t want a trailer or any pics. The reason OotP was my least favorite was because the trailer and pics showed everything from Kreacher, to Sirius falling through the veil, to Harry being held by Lupin. They even showed us every single detail of the extremely disappointing and ill concieved “battle” at the end. I want to go into the last three films without any knowledge (except for omitted scenes, I’m fine with that). I want everything to be a surprise like the first film was when I was nine. Doesn’t anyone agree with me?
I first thought that the one with Harry seeming to peer into a filing cabinet was from detention, too. But now that we can see the full image, this is obviously Slughorn’s Potions case, and Harry is most likely looking for the bezoar after Ron was poisoned.
Great to finally get more images . . . woohoo!
I don’t think that’s a filing cabinet—I think its an old steamer trunk. It looks like the style that you would prop up on its end and use like a traveling wardrobe only this one seems to be fill with vials of potions.
I know everyone’s different, but I’m always amazed when people say that OotP was the worst of the movies so far. To me, it was infinitely better, and left all the other movies in the dust. It was more emotional, more fully realized, better acted, more seamless… just better period. And I don’t care what anyone says, I freaking LOVE David Yates. Seriously. He saved the Potter movie franchise, as far as I’m concerned. I’m giddy he’ll be directing all the rest of the films.
As for not wanting to see any trailers or know anything about the movies beforehand… well, personally, I want to know EVERYTHING. I’ve read all the books and know them inside out, so it’s not like the storyline in the movies can be spoiled for me. Also, if I find out about the things I don’t like beforehand (ie, Bill & Fleur and Trelawney being cut, or Hermione getting all of Ron’s [and everyone else’s] lines again), I can grumble and vent and get it out of my system, then when I actually see the movie, I’m already over it and it doesn’t bother me as much. So, yes, I like to know as much as possible about the movies before I see them.
Some people are thinking that the photo of the trio in Ron’s room could be the moment Harry told his friends about the prophecy. I doubt that because in OotP movie they all heard the prophecy, so Harry wouldn’t need to tell them.
“Some people are thinking that the photo of the trio in Ronâ€™s room could be the moment Harry told his friends about the prophecy. I doubt that because in OotP movie they all heard the prophecy, so Harry wouldnâ€™t need to tell them.”
Posted by Lilyp
Actually, it is rather clear in the OotP film that only Harry heard the prophecy. The inter-cut scenes showed Ron and Hermione looking at each other like “what’s up with Harry?”
I definitely think this is where Harry reveals the prophecy contents to R&H.
Ashley, I’m completely with you, ALL the Potter films are amazing in my opinion (seriously, people should get over the fact that they’re not the books) but Ootp was really really GREAT. And I also agree with you with the whole whineFleur/Bill/Gaunts/etcetcetc are not in the movie whine. I prefer to whine beforehand and actually enjoy the movie on the release date.
As for the pictures… I’m so incredibly happy…the trio is looking great! Specially in the one in Ron’s Room, I’m LOVING it! Rupert looks so good, all of them actually… it’s amazing. And the Draco & Snape one is great too, I’m so happy Draco has more depht now, I’m not a Draco fan/zomghe’ssohotandsexyandhotlet’spairhimupwithsomeone cough but I definitely think the character is interesting and important enough to be given more depht in the movies…
In the last one, with the trio and the book, on hermy’s newspaper, i see the green thing were they put in the moving pics.
Does this mean that a trailer is just on the horizon?
I love the picture with the trio in Ron’s bedrrom. HAWT-ness.
I love the picture with the trio in Ron’s bedroom. HAWT-ness.
wow pictures of characters sitting down, walking and doing nothing of interest, its sure looking like yates bringing something very exciting to the picture. ootp scored the lowest from critics, nation wide. its going down hill for the potter films.
Yay for the pictures, but give us the dang trailer already. And I want pics of Ron during Quiddich!!!!!! And some pictures of Hermione interacting with Ron instead of Harry. All the pictures seem to make Ron out to be a third wheel.
The first pictures are always like these ones… c’mon people (who’s complaining) they’re not even officially released yet! So…stop complaining at least it’s something
why is draco all blurry :( anyway, i was sooo happy to see these photos :D so excited for the movie!
whats the point of including insignificant characters like the carrows in the sixth film, there names most likely will not even be mentioned in the film, they just be there for the sake of the fans, normal movie goers wont have a clue who they are plus why is lucius malfoy included in the slughorn memory scene. he wasn’t ther in the book. ow lets just put him in for the sake of it. the bigger the cast the better the movie, yeah. also why put regulus black in this film they could easily have placled him in the fifth,showing his family tree, a quick explanation is all thats needed. another thing, whats with the costuming and make up, the trio look like there ment to be on the cover of some designer teenage magazine. the film is supposed to be set in 1995 or 6. another,is why is harry’s hair so neat, the third and forth film captued the essence of the what the character really was. now we have this short haired neat looking boy. it the most “un-Harry-like” hairstyle so far. theys are small thins so why change them. if you look at the 5th film and then look at the other four, costume, music, make up, editing, acting and everything wise its completely different. to say the fifth film was the best is to say the rest of them were total rubbish. ow and the locket, wat are they going to do about the locket. are they going to just try to fit everything into the last 2films. the movie goers are going to have a head ache trying to remeber everything. the way the fifth film was made, was so that only fans could understand it. you dont make films for that purpose alone. please wb, you still have time, rethink on your decision, of yates for the last 2 films. i’m Ed Tom signing off.
i was just here eating a double choc muffin, when i came acroos what Ed Tom had to say. I aggree with you Ed Tom. Changes need to be remade, storms coming are you sure you are on the right side.
BONNIE ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i’m eating a double choc muffin right now, cosmic forces are aligning, woaw.
Everyone read the paragraph about the pictures. It says a new larger photo of harry looking in a filing cabnet. It has to be where harry is doing his detention with snape or where harry is looking for the potions book. It can’t be the scene where ron gets poisoned because wouldn’t harry have a scared look on his face or a worried look as well?
OMG! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Alan Rickman I love you! I have been away all day and I come on and see yet another HBP photo of him. Exciting exciting and more exciting is all I can say. He really is the Highlight of the series for me- him and new member Helena as Bellatrix. Boy bet no one guessed that- ah whats my screen name again? I looking forward to seeing new people too though like Helen as Cissy.
Ron’s room looks cool! But what’s with these new sudden flood of phots? New promotional strategy? I’m still waiting for that trailer!!
Aw, what’s with that Snape picture?
Just a thought; the photo labelled “Harry Looking into Filing Cabinet” might be Harry in Slughorns office looking for the Bezoar to save Ron (from being poisoned on his birthday) in Slughorn’s Briefcase/Suitcase.
Looks like lots of potions bottles in the background.
What do you all think?
Just to say i’m with those who believe OotP was the best movie by far. It actually made me care about the onscreen characters in the same way as in the books, which was a first. Roll on HBP! Like the photos but I really want to see Slughorn.
Love the look of the Burrow BTW.
My theory on the filing cabinet thing was that it’s actually Harry finding the potions book (the cabinet looks more like an old trunk like the one Lupin had in POA – it has a handle on the side – and I figured the S was either for Snape or Severus … perhaps Snape’s old school trunk was there or something …)
But now that you mention it, I think the bezoar theory is right. I seem to remember something about Slughorn having an emergency potions kit, and it would make sense if the S stood for Slughorn …
You win, BearPaw!
Awesome!!! The picture of Snape and Draco is from Gloucester Cathedral. I saw those brackets! And Ron’s room is amazing!!! =D
The pictures are so good.Dan,Rupert and Emma look soooooooo cool!!!!Ron’s bedroom looks awesome too.I wish we could get some pictures of Harry and Ginny.
Yay! Pictures! Woo for Ron’s room and the Snape & Draco plot!
And wooo for Harry looking in the potions cupboard there with all the bottles. Possibly for the bezoar?? Or else that is just him doing Snape’s detention.
Seriously, what’s with all these complaining? It seems like some people enjoy complaining so much. First they complain about the lack of picture, now when new pics come out and they can’t find anything wrong with the pics, they just start complaining about other movie stuff completely unrelated to this news. I bet next month they will complain that there are too many pics.
Ed Tom, at least DO SOME RESEARCH before start your nitpicking:
- “plus why is lucius malfoy included in the slughorn memory scene. he wasnâ€™t ther in the book. ow lets just put him in for the sake of it.”
The actor has already said that he will appear in an old Slug Club photo. That’s it. It is called ‘attention to detail’.
-“also why put regulus black in this film they could easily have placled him in the fifth,showing his family tree, a quick explanation is all thats needed.”
The actor gave an interview that he will appear in a photo in Slughorn office. By introducing him this way, the audience will know who he is and also GET TO SEE HIS FACE. You complain about the movie confusing those who are not fan. Well, THIS IS ONE WAY TO SOLVE THAT PROBLEM. If they just introduce Regulus the same way as in the book, movie goers will just forget about him by the time we get to DH. Now that they also show his face in the movie, it is likely that the audience will be less confused.
-“whats with the costuming and make up, the trio look like there ment to be on the cover of some designer teenage magazine. the film is supposed to be set in 1995 or 6.”
I don’t know about your taste in fashion. But to me, those clothes look like something you can see normal teenagers wearing everyday, which is what the kids are suppose to wear outside school (Harry and Hermione grow up in a muggle family, and it is mentioned in GOF that Weasley kids wear muggle clothes at home). We don’t even get a proper look at Ron and Harry’s clothes in that burrow pic, and Hermione’s clothes the same one (or the similar one) she wore in one deleted scene of POA.
-“why is harryâ€™s hair so neat, the third and forth film captued the essence of the what the character really was. now we have this short haired neat looking boy. it the most â€œun-Harry-likeâ€ hairstyle so far.”
To me, it look far more messy than in the first 2 films.
-“whats the point of including insignificant characters like the carrows in the sixth film, there names most likely will not even be mentioned in the film, they just be there for the sake of the fans, normal movie goers wont have a clue who they are”
They are included in HBP because the have bigger role in DH. Yes, normal movie goers wont have a clue who they are BECAUSE THEY DON’T NEED TO. They just have to see these two characters as Voldemort’s minions and that’s it. Filmmakers need a bunch of Death Eaters for the battle at the end anyway. Why not include characters from the book instead of just a bunch of extras???
-“to say the fifth film was the best is to say the rest of them were total rubbish”
Just because two things are different doesn’t mean you can’t like both of them. I like both POA and OOTP for different reasons. I also like both HP and Narnia although they are different. I think HP is better, but that doesn’t mean Narnia is rubbish.
COOL! I want a trailer though. :-( But really cool pics! =D
Things are really starting to appear!!
The trailer can’t be far behind. :-D
Well done Mugglethai – I like your point by point reasoned refutations of Ed Tom’s statements. Have you ever considered a career in law?
Also – I did read some negative reviews by critics of Order of the Phoenix, but I often got the feeling that the critic had no idea about the series and where it was headed. For example, Roger Ebert wrote something like – “what happened to the fun?” Well, most people would know that in the 5th installment, there wasn’t much fun. I thought it was done pretty well, and the 5th book was my favorite, so I guess I just enjoyed seeing it put on film. I do think they were overly concerned about not making it too long however. Even 20 more minutes would have been good.
That being said, I enjoy seeing pictures from the films, I really don’t think it will ruin anything at all for me.
I’m torn on OOtP. It wasn’t my favorite of the movies, but the book isn’t my favorite of the books either. The book just covers a huge amount of diverse ground without nearly the same linear plot as the previous ones. So I think they did as solid of a job as they could with the material.
There were still some things missing that I would have desperately liked to have seen, like Harry trashing DD’s office or more about Fred and George’s entrepreneurial beginnings. I understand the people’s point of view who say they didn’t like OOtP more than the people who say they loved it best of all.
I just don’t think you can blame Yates. That particular book just has so many detailed subplots that relate more to the action in later books, so it was tough to make into a movie given that so much is left unresolved.
that’s cool but to be HONEST, I’m bored with pics of the trio looking worried about something, HBP was my favorite book, and I need to see pics of Ron & Lavender, Ginny & Harry, Ron & Harry playing quidditch and Snape, something interesting, I’m losing my interest in HP and that’s not fair because last year I was really excited about this movie and now I’m not :(
Mugglethai: You said it best. All the complainers are the ones who will be the first in line to see the movie.
Are there any pictures of Hermione um not looking “concerned” or “annoyed”? She kind of looks like a bug flew up her nose.
why is Hermione’s hair so flat in the burrow photo?
WB – if you are so hell-bent on not having photos released without your persmission – then bloody give us some!
What silliness that WB tells you to take the photos down. What century do they think this is? Those photos are all around the world now.
Why I ask do WB want us to not see anything- that is our whole problem here. We are stuck repeating and talking about boring news and OOTP movie and other stuff when we want the darn HBP stuff. We know that the pictures are there and the poster is there and the Trailer is there why not give it to us? IF they actually think people will lose interest in it if they give out stuff this early that is pretty stupid. Oh yeah and you cant speculate about anything either I guess – My post got deleted for no reason on the other board. I KNOW for a FACT leaky that I said nothing wrong in that other post- I have no clue why its not there.
Well I’ve saved them anyway.
But… but why is WB blowing us off? I feel like one of my mates is refusing to speak to me! hugs random WB Exec. around the waist Why don’t you love us anymore! WHY!! Well I’m being overly dramatic but that doesn’t mean I’m not confused and a little bit desperate for news. But who knows, maybe this means WB are planning something BIG real soon and want nothing to distract from it. XD Here’s hopin’ ;-)
Wow? They wanted to take those pictures off? Very well then …. yeah, I agree Sylvie, thank God I had them saved. Lol. =) Jeez, why does WB want to be so flipping secretive about this all? Maybe if they gave us pictures or a trailer then this wouldn’t have happened! BAHHRAKDFASJFLDSFJ !
Slither! – that’s exactly how I’m feeling! “But who knows, maybe this means WB are planning something BIG real soon and want nothing to distract from it.” That’s what I’ve been wanting to say, I just couldn’t find the right words. :)))
Great minds think alike ;-)
I thought they were the real deal. Oh well, I think this means that they are planning something special and they didn’t want to spoil it by letting those pics to be released.
Ok, I agree with all those who are saying that WB might be planning something big…
But honestly… removing pictures???? it just makes no sense! I would like to have SOMETHING to discuss… so far, we have nothing.
Why can’t WB do some sort of “viral” ad campaign like they did with “The Dark Knight”? It could highlight the Voldy history and Harry’s obsession with Malfoy, two darker storylines.
darn, missed them!!!!
boooo….Warner Bros!! You took my eye candy away.
so not fair!!! other peeps got to see them and i miss one day and get jipped of a new pic!! this is outrageous!!!
Huh. Odd choice. These pictures are pretty much up all over the internet now. Live journal and anything Draco- or Rickman etc. have copies.
I wonder if they were just set photos and not from the final product?
buh bye pictures…hmm…maybe WB is trying to make us suffer…thats what im coming up with…
Ok the pictures are still on on the leaky cauldron. You just have to go to one of the sites like Daniel Radcliffe.com where it says the Order. Ok the one with dan in the deserted corridor it looks like the sectumsempra scene. If you look real close at dan’s face you can see blood on it. Look on his ear. It has to be that scene where snape takes draco to the hospital wing and he tells harry to wait right there for him. And he also has a “omg what have I just done” look on his face. Or a “I’m going to expelled for that” look on his face as well.
I agree with you June, I DO think that’s Harry after Sectusempra…
I saved the pics WB! MWAHAHAHHAHA!
Wow, I really hope they’re planning something BIG.
And well said Mugglethai!!! Really well said :D
i agree with ed tom, he should become a lawyer. YEAH for ed tom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love Ron”s room and Emma’s hair/pj’s
i want the trailer so bad
wahhhh i missed them i bet they looked alwsome
so the only thing we hear from WB after months of silent “were not giving u any new stuff, forget about the trailer ” is that these pics here have to be removed…Hmmm… I think there are actually big problems with production of this movie, it is not coming together as expected – the storm destroyed some sets as i heard, they have a very tight schedule, perhaps the tighest one yet – and so they dont have enough time for postproduction, the cgi and most of the special effects shots are going to be crappy (ehm,ehm…Grawp, ...the night flight). They finished shooting late, and even if they have been working on cgi as they were shooting, this there is still not enough time- THEY ARE LATE with everyhing. I hve a baad feelingabout this,...
This is just so WEIRD. Stan has a point, why on earth has nothing been revealed at this point?? The PotterCasters keep predicting dates for the trailer, even people more “in the know” have no idea what’s going on… I hope it’s part of some grand advertising plan but I doubt it.
Sadly I saw this post too late, I didn’t even get to see the pictures. :(
Hmm. So, when the WB told you to take the pictures down, did they at least have the courtesy to tell you when we might be getting something official? This is getting ridiculous. I’m really starting to hate the WB.
Anyway, it’s futile for them to suddenly start “requesting” that sites like Leaky take the pictures down, considering the fact that the pics are EVERYWHERE. They’re all over live journal, and all over just about every HP news site in existence. And even if they managed to get every single one of those places to take the pics down, there would still be the fact that lots of people have saved the pictures to their personal Photobucket accounts, Image Shack accounts, hard drives, etc.
muahahaha who saved the pictures? I did that who. But this is getting a bit stingy WB.
When I first read this I panicked. I thought it was saying there was a new Draco and Snape, as in the actors. I almost cried.
This is just aggravating! I HOPE it is because they are planning something “special” but I am not really feeling it, you know? Something is up. I am starting to worry that the first bit of real news we get from them is going to be a notice: “This film is being delayed due to…” OMG!
If your telling me they are everywhere. Tell me where I can find them then. Like a link. LOL!
Iâ€™ve saved the pictures!!!! hahahahaha WB!
I donâ€™t understand, though. Why did they remove them? I though they were official, they had the WB trademark on them after allâ€¦
Why is the advertising going so slowly? WHAT IS GOING ON???
Well, apart from the fact that these pics are around the planet by now and almost every HP fan has seen them (sorry, Lindsay, :( Bad luck indeed), why should it be a problem for us to see them on the web? If they aren’t official, why doesn’t the WB just say they aren’t official and lets them be? If they are official, well, it’s a moot point to have them taken down anyway.
@ Stan: If I recall correctly, they had the first OotP teaser out, plus a bunch of pics, while CGI and special effects was still to be done. They were far from finished, but they gave us something.
I don’ t understand their reclusiveness. Even if these pics were still online, as soon as the WB gave us something even more new, we would go awwww and ohhhh and fantastic (yes and the occasional complaints would arise too, that’s just how we are ;) ). We would be thrilled and discuss each new pic or other promo material and of course we’re going to watch the movie in the theatres later.
I’ve already saved them. I’m sorry, but more than half the fans who saw it probably saved them. I just don’t get it. Why would they take remove them when thousands of fans already saw them. uhh confusing! And it’s about time they’ve showed some pictures, I mean they showed a lot all of a sudden when OOTP was coming out. Maybe they wanted to reveal lots of pictures at the same time to suprise us,but it’s still confusing.
okay, this is my plea to the entire harry potter community - and i know theres a lot out there—SOMEBODY TELL ME WHERE THE PICTURES ARE!!!!!!!!!!!! IF THEYRE NOT ON LEAKY, TELL ME WHERE I CAN FIND THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please?
wtf, leaky? whyd you cross out my clause? do hate me too know, like my chums @ WB?
Know why WB ordered Leaky to take down the pics? Because it doesn’t matter if they win or lose the Steve Vander Ark lawsuit. The high flying days of the internet are OVER. WB recognizes that if it permits unlicensed photos to be put up on what is basically a WB marketing outlet without authorization, it is creating legal prededent. They aren’t thinking marketing. They aren’t thinking about the fans. They are thinking about the lawsuits and their inability to control the internet.
The note from Sue does remind me of the early days of Potter when WB was ordering everyone to cease and desist putting up photos. Then when they realized that they had a marketing bonanza by permitting photos to be distributed on the internet, they opened the floodgates. But that was before the intellectual property wars broke out. Obviously things have changed.
Ah, Taylor, your “clause” is struck because you typed dashes before and after that part of the sentence.
To taylor and Thisisdumb:
I won’t put a link to the pictures, because in all likelihood Leaky would have to delete my comment. However, I know that if you go to Snitchseeker and Oclumencia, you can still the pictures, although you’ll probably have to scroll waaaaaay down to find them, since this is now kind of an old bit of news. If that doesn’t work, you might try hbpmoviepics over on livejournal.
Actually, it’s entirely possible that even mentioning those sites might get my comment deleted. Only time will tell.
Yes, thanx Saria! the photos are still on Snitchseeker! I guess they didnt get the message from WB or sumthing huh?
You know, I recently found about the viral marketing campaign(s) of “The Dark Knight”, and was completely amazed at the creativity of the promotions. Here’s hoping that WB is building up to something major to promote HBP this summer, and that the floodgates on official pics, trailers, set reports, etc will start very very soon.
Leaky is the only fansite who has removed them. Even Mugglenet still has them up.
@The Masked Tortilla You think that we all say Thanks to Steve ( ironic) if these year we have the most rotten movie promotional campaign all over the time ?
So WB will not gave us anything for HP6 ??
Wow thanks Saria!! I love the picture from Ron’s room! It looks so homely :)
I’m glad I got to see those pictures and I’m sure it won’t take away from my enjoyment of the film! It’s just pictures! And yes, Leaky is apparently the only site which has removed the pictures… any comment, Leaky staff? I guess you aren’t allowed to or something, that’s fine, it’s not your fault. :) It’s just weird if Leaky is the only site which was asked to take them down (also weird if all were asked but Leaky was the only one to obey, of course :P). Is it cause you’re the most prominent fansite, or is it a backlash from having such a close relationship with the WB – they watch your every move? :/
And what is UP with the WB taking the pictures down in the first place??
the hbp movie comes out in theaters november 21 2008
WHY ???? : ( I LIKED THEM PICS
it seems that WB is acting very strange lately not only with the deletion of these ( and other) picturs, but about the teaser trailer too. It’s common fashion to get a teaser trailer about 6 months before the movie is released, but this mark has passed, and we have about five months until the release of HBP.
VERY STRANGE VERY STRANGE WARNER BROTHER WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS????
Why did they take them down? I want to see them too!
You’re quite welcome, snitchseeker101 and Selina. I’m glad you were able to find them. :)
Ashley, to see the pics, go to Mugglenet, Snitchseeker, Oclumencia, or to the livejournal community called hbpmoviepics. All of those sites still have them up, though you’ll have to scroll down quite a ways to find them, since it’s an old bit of news by now.
It really IS strange that Leaky is the only site that was asked to take down the pictures. I’m assuming that Mugglenet wasn’t asked at all, because in the past they’ve always seemed to be pretty cooperative with the WB, and I think they probably would have removed the pictures if they’d been asked, just like Leaky did.
WB does this EVERY TIME. They demand that some completely innocuous pictures be removed and Leaky complies. Of course, we all know those same pictures will NOT be removed from some other sites.
The result of WB’s action is that the best fan sites, like Leaky, get punished while those other sites continue to ignore WB’s demands with impunity.
THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!
WB are reeeeeally asking for a b*tch slap! I mean, come on! We’re fans and all we want is afew pictures and a trailer! We’re not asking for anything else like 1 million pounds! It’s to that hard. I mean, they’re being selfish!
WELL TOUGH, WB, BECAUSE I SAVED THE PICS SO THERE. I aint deleting them because we’ve waited ENOUGH BLOODY TIME for pictures, and we’re getting really impatient with these. We’ve got, what, 1 or 2 pictures, and they whinge and moan. It’s not like we stole the footage they’ve shot! Jeeze…
I might write them a letter.. i’m getting really annoyed with them.
KB Prez, until I hear otherwise, I’m assuming that the other sites haven’t been “asked” to remove the pics (I used quotation marks because I doubt WB truly asked Leaky to take the pictures down; I think they demanded it, probably in nice terms, but with the clear underlying message that Leaky had no choice in the matter).
It’s not like the WB has no power. If they told those other sites to take the pictures down, I have no doubt the WB would have gotten their way, one way or the other. That’s why I tend to believe that Leaky is the only site that was told to take them down. I wouldn’t go vilifying the other sites just yet.
Saria, if I came across as criticizing other sites, I didn’t mean to. My complaint is directed at WB. I know of one other site that has also removed the HBP pictures. I may be wrong, but I’m assuming WB’s “request” was not limited to Leaky.
My problem is that while Leaky and a few other sites will always accede to WB’s demands, others will not and WB knows this. In my opinion, these pictures do nothing to harm WB. If anything, leaking them increases excitement about the films. Why does WB always come down with a hammer knowing that only a few will ever comply???
I remember in the run-up to OOTP, I wondered why we kept seeing cast and crew interviews from other media outlets, but not from Leaky. My understanding is that Leaky was only complying with WB’s embargo. Do these restrictions only apply to Leaky and a few others?? Seems to me Leaky always tries to be a good soldier, but gets little in return.
Ok the picture of Harry looking into a filing cabinet has to be where he is doing his detention for snape. Because if you look at the first photo that was released back in december it shows Harry wearing the same clothes as he is in this picture. In the first picture he is walking through a wooden door and he his holding the HBP’s potion’s book and the maurauder’s map. And if you look on top of the trunk you can see a piece of parchment where Harry uses to write down the detentiont records. And if you watch order of the phoenix I think it is the same type of wall paint or whatever you call it that harry was in when he had to do his detention with Mrs. Umbridge. And it is the same lighting. And from the first photo if you look at harry face it looks like he has a stunned look on his face. Probably he just heard that they won the quidditch match.
rupert grint is the best and no other. ron’s room is amazing and so is he. when it comes to acting rupert is the best, looks, still rupert is the best.
Film isGood. I like it!
