Over the past few weeks, reports surfaced regarding a very brief IMAX teaser trailer being previewed in front of The Dark Knight film this past weekend. Many owled this morning to let us know the short IMAX teaser trailer can now be viewed online. The short teaser features a simple black background, a short voiceover quote from Albus Dumbledore, and the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince logo, before the text “Select Sequences in IMAX 3D” appears on the screen over a familiar theme. In the meantime, we await for more concrete information from WB regarding trailer news in the future.

Update: The fifteen second IMAX teaser trailer is now available in our Video Galleries.

wooooo 1st

Avatar Image says:

wow thats all? Can’t believe that WB hadn’t brought the teaser trailer out yet!

Avatar Image says:

It’s about time we got something. Same music as the SS movie. Wonder why they didn’t let Harry same something or at least show us where they were. I wonder if they will do the same for when the real trailer comes out on August 1st.

Avatar Image says:

Well, that was….awesome. lol Oh real teaser trailer where art thou?

Avatar Image says:

YAY! but when will we get a full one??

Avatar Image says:

1st? If so…yay for Bahamas! Nehoo wow, that really was a ‘pointless’ teaser. Then again it really wasn’t a teaser huh, just and advertisment for IMAX. SO ok cool…its acceptable in my books. Nehoo…today is the day… DARK KNIGHT! Lets hope the real teaser trailer rumors for HBP are true for this 1!

Avatar Image says:

COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!2nd?????

Avatar Image says:

YAY! but when will we get a full one??

Avatar Image says:

“Once again, I must ask too much of you, Harry.”

Ohhh, very chilling.

Avatar Image says:

I loved it. IDK about you guys, but that was really exciting. :) Makes me pumped. Not that I wasn`t, but it makes me VERY happy. I love this. :D

Avatar Image says:

It’s so frustrating I want more dammit lol =) Cannot wait for the full trailer =O

Avatar Image says:

Well, next time, Cinnamon Goodness, just click once and wait. :P Because now it HAS gone through 20 times.

As for the trailer, well, it’s really as lame as expected, but I think it’s still awesome because Dumbledore’s voice manages (for once) to carry some emotion (he seems soft and wise, but old, tired and worried) in that simple line.

Avatar Image says:

That was so not worth it!

Avatar Image says:

what the hell?? really ..I study filmediting and it takes 1-3 day to create a trailer ..this isnt too much ask for …is it? maybe something went wrong???

Avatar Image says:

shortest teaser trailer EVER!! really worth the months long wait XD but good to see the logo :)

Avatar Image says:

YES!!! I know it’s not much you guys, but it’s still the teaser!!! I’m so excited! :D

Avatar Image says:

Omg was that it? :( I got my hopes up and it was nothing exciting. Come on trailer!

Avatar Image says:

Ummm, right!! ???

Avatar Image says:

Omg was that it? :( I got my hopes up and it was nothing exciting. Come on trailer!

Avatar Image says:

Oh WB y must you tempt us so??

Avatar Image says:

this is hilarious. its uber lame, but i still got the tiniest chill, i must admit. hopefully there’ll be a real teaser with that mummy sequel and it’ll be online as fast as this one.

Avatar Image says:

What a eerie teaser…Yet, it was beautiful at the same time.

Avatar Image says:

Ummm, right!!???

Avatar Image says:

this is getting more stupid everyday, if that was it, then why even bother to do a freaking teaser of nothing!!!

Avatar Image says:

What an eerie teaser….Yet, it was beautiful as well. I loved it.

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

I loved it.

Avatar Image says:

that wa suck

Avatar Image says:

That sort of thing isn’t aimed at hardcore fans who follow every tiny bit of news on HP – it’s part of a marketing campaign aimed at everyone, so for most people HP won’t have been on the scene for a year now and this snippet is to whet their appetites. I think it was a very clever move. At this point of the franchise it makes sense to have something so brief to both indicate that HP is an established part of a movie goer’s schedule AND something that barely needs advertising before presenting a full length trailer….

Avatar Image says:

ok you are very clever mizzy

Avatar Image says:

but i don’understand anything

Avatar Image says:

That’s it?! Geez, the Dark Knight’s teaser trailer was more substantial than that , and it came out last summer! Very disappointing.

Avatar Image says:

ok now we need to wat until the 1st of august?????

Avatar Image says:

At least it is something, isn’t it? Thank you, Warner Brothers, for this…after that wait that seemed like an eternity!

Avatar Image says:

are you going to see the dark knight?? elizabeth??

Avatar Image says:

you meen warner bros and not warner brothers

Avatar Image says:

Awsome. :] Lots of people think it is fake. lol.

Avatar Image says:

That’s it? Wow, this had better be a joke.

Avatar Image says:

Sort of reminded of the first Superman Trailer with Christopher Reeve (showing my age now)...

If I remember correctly, all it showed was the ‘S’ and they played the theme music. There were absolutely no clips. The movie was a huge hit.

Avatar Image says:

ok karen but that is not superman

Avatar Image says:

ok whatever we need to say that this trailer is for ass

Avatar Image says:

and what the hell dumbledore said??

Avatar Image says:

Well, when you say short, you ain’t joking!!!!

but it is better than what we have been getting I guess, which was nothing.

John B.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, that’s just…wow…some at WB should be fired. Why even bother?

Avatar Image says:

Man, that must have taken lots of laborious hours and had to have involved much toil and strife to produce the fine product now before us. I mean, really, I’m glad they worked so hard on it and didn’t overexert themselves. Sheesh.

Avatar Image says:

you have right jason some at wrner bros should be fired

Avatar Image says:

everybody there are assholes

Avatar Image says:

i am sorry about my english i am from france

Avatar Image says:

C’mon, folks, take it easy, that is only the IMAX teaser. IIRC, IMAX doesnt really do previews, except for IMAX stuff. You should never have expected more for IMAX. I’m guessing we all have to wait until The Clone Wars to see a real trailer.

but, on the other hand, at least now we have proof that they’re actually releasing a movie. LOL!

LMAO! :)

Avatar Image says:

It is a bit embarrassing to be honest * hides face in shame from my non hp friends*. They didn’t even show the title clearly and fades to the imax experience line. You’ll blink and miss that it is even an HP trailer.

Avatar Image says:

uhhh this made me mad i was looking forward to something… they could have atleast showed dumbledores face but nooooo they couldnt… why why why… they really need to show a trailer!!!

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!!! I need more! Why can’t WB give us MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

HARRY: If you could find them all If you did destroy each Horcrux…

ALBUS: One kills Voldemort.

HARRY: But how would you find them. They could be hidden anywhere couldn’t they?

ALBUS: True. But magic… especially Dark magic… leave traces.

HARRY: Its where youve been going, isn’t it sir? When you leave the school?

ALBUS: Yes, I think perhaps I may have found another. But this time I cannot hope to destroy it alone.

ALBUS: Once again I must ask too much of you Harry

Avatar Image says:

What a piece of Crap! Why does WB kill us in this way?

Avatar Image says:

Well, that was…brief. I saw ‘The Dark Knight’ last nite & this ‘preview’ was not shown.

Avatar Image says:

I couldn’t even make out what the man said!

Avatar Image says:

wow that was exciting…... at least it was something

Avatar Image says:

Jeez people cool off. It will all happen in time.

Avatar Image says:

Once again, i must ask too much of you WB.

i will say that sir michael gambons voice gave me goosebumps, the one statement they chose was good, because people like us who know the ending know what an understatement that was lol.

i wanna see a peak at fenrir, or at least some of the cave =D

Avatar Image says:

Once more, I must ask you to go to Neverland… Hehe. :-D

Avatar Image says:

I’m sorry but is this really it?! I know it’s a teaser trailer, but I mean come on!! This shows absolutely nothing… I’m sorry but for once I’m actually quite disappointed in WB.

Avatar Image says:

That was sort of a waste in my opinion. I mean I’ll probably see Dark Knight in Imax anyways, but not because of this preview thing. Any fan could’ve made it really. I saw Dark Knight last night and there were trailers for movies not coming out till like March 2009. I hope it’s with the Mummy or I’ll be kinda mad. I don’t understand why it’s taking so long. Twlight has released a few clips and now 2 teaser trailers and it comes out a few weeks after HBP. Maybe this is the plan to keep us waiting and wanting it so badly. I don’t know. I know 15 secs isn’t a lot to work with, but I wasn’t expecting a black screen and then the title. At least show the scene where Dumbledore says that line to Harry, then it would’ve been cool.

Avatar Image says:

Haha this is bizarre, I live in Belfast :-)

Avatar Image says:

well…... that was ummm….... not bad… what did the voice say?

Avatar Image says:

THEY DID NOT JUST DO THAT :( Eurgh

Avatar Image says:

You know this would have been a perfectly acceptable even amazing teaser trailer 3 months ago! But to give it to us now, when we should be getting a first look at a full length trailer, only makes me feel kind of gyped.

Avatar Image says:

twirls finger They couldn’t do any more than that? Sheesh. O_o

Avatar Image says:

When I went to see Dark Knight today, it wasn’t in my theaters, and I live in suburban NY. O= But yeah, just saw it – nothing I missed though. xD

Avatar Image says:

It wasn’t much, but it sent a chill up my spine-it’s an actual quote from the movie! Enough to make an overexcitable geek like me happy!

Avatar Image says:

Jeez, that was pretty lame.

It failed at teasing me. :/

Avatar Image says:

Wow! I love it! Very teaser-ish.

Avatar Image says:

They say good things come to those who wait. Maybe it’ll be worth it in the end! :)

Avatar Image says:

Short and not necessarily sweet. But something, none the less. [Emphasis on the less] Not fair that only IMAX gets to see it, but there you are. It’s a “teaser for a teaser” ROFL. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to the real trailer! :D

Avatar Image says:

A teaser trailer? i know there not meant to give away much but i cant believe that was it! it was more of a promotional piece than a teaser trailer.

Avatar Image says:

D I S S A P O I N T E D!

Okay, seriously.. I’m so dissapointed .

Avatar Image says:

why didn’t they do a teaser like this back in May and then have something more substantial by now?

Avatar Image says:

D I S S A P O I N T E D!

Avatar Image says:

I agree with the previous poster, this would have been wonderful back in January or something. Short and sweet. But not when the movie is 4 months away. Honestly I don’t see this movie doing nearly as well as OotP because they’re relying too much on the diehards and not the casual fans. The franchise doesn’t have the benefit of a new book release to coincide with a film release like what happened with many of the films. It will do well but not nearly as well as it could especially when you have another book series “Twilight” opening shortly after and they’re building a hype due to the awesome early teasers.

You would think with Yates’ obsessive love of quick editing, that we WOULD have had a trailer already. Half the time it looks like he was making a trailer with how quickly he cut around during a scene.

Avatar Image says:

i guess it’s better than a swift kick in the ass.

Avatar Image says:

O-kay. I was expecting almost nothing, but still more than this… Hehe, kind of funny, though, still a cool quote.

Avatar Image says:

Heather, I agree with you.

Jeez, I had know idea putting together a teaser trailer and, umm, promoting a movie could be this hard. I mean COME ON. It’s tiresome.

“It will do well but not nearly as well as it could especially when you have another book series “Twilight” opening shortly after and they’re building a hype due to the awesome early teasers.”

Yeah, but it’s a new series so it needs to get the hype up. Though it will have a snowball’s chance in h*ll coming even close to HP internationally. And have you seen the trailer? It looks so dodgy!

Avatar Image says:

I don’t think we need to worry about Twilight, but they need to start promoting the HELL out of this film (HBP) to ramp up excitement.

I must say, though, I was re-reading HBP the last couple of weeks during my commute on the subway and numerous people would look over and ask what I was reading (I have the british adult paperback version thanks to amazon.uk!) and they would get excited when I’d mention I was re-reading it before the film comes out. So there is excitement there when you REMIND people about it…but let’s get that going, shall we?? :) :)

Avatar Image says:

LOL! been waiting for a teaser for so long and that’s all? well better be grateful than nothing right? (which i really am!) but can we get a glimpse of harry and ginny??? can’t wait!!!

Avatar Image says:

Well that was a lot of buildup for nothing. haha Oh well!!! Let the wait continue!!! :o)

Avatar Image says:

i can’t say much really for the twilight (i really don’t know that)... but i guess with so much aniticipation from the book readers and non-book readers for hp, i think there should be some promotion going on already since it’s just 4mos away. i was too rereading the hbp and i can almost picture everything in my mind perfectly though i still imagine dumbledore as harris, not gambon… omg!!! really can’t wait for more! do i have a choice?

Avatar Image says:

hahahhahahahahhahahahhahah what did I tell you!!!!??? maybe someone remembers when it was post about small teaser-I said its going to be just the logo! ooo,but Dumbledores voice too! wooooooooow Warner bros!

Avatar Image says:

Haha, I heard: ‘Once again, I must ask you to fasten your seatbelt Harry’.

Avatar Image says:

Yay! That was actually more than I was expecting- I didn’t think they’d heve Dumbledore or anyone talking at all :)

Avatar Image says:

ok put dumbledore talk because die in this film hahaha!

Avatar Image says:

I see Yates is being blamed for the timing of the trailer releases now (eyes roll).

Avatar Image says:

we are all disappointed about that we saw in the ’’trailer’‘

Avatar Image says:

Man, they’re really keeping it hidden!

Avatar Image says:

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

i know it wasn’t much (not at all) but it gave me a tingling feeling XD

Avatar Image says:

That’s it?! Come on, WB!

Avatar Image says:

No offence…...that was a bit crap. Yeah sure build up suspence and everything but normally the trailers come out a bit earlier than this and that’s all we get? WB know we’re biting our nails for this don’t they lol!!!!

Avatar Image says:

The Trailer is coming; there has been a huge delay with the SFX, which has delayed the teaser trailer. So they are jumping right to a full trailer coming out in August. And for the person who said it takes 1 to 3 days to do a trailer. They’ve obviously never cut a professional trailer. Just wait patiently.. It’s going to be so worth it.

Avatar Image says:

WOW, that was a tease,however if you like homemade trailers go to you tube, There are some pretty good ones to watch. I saw dark night last night it was goo but no HBP trailers at all. We can’t wait for HBP. We are going to do all of the other movies in order then go and see HBP i can’t wait…......

Avatar Image says:

WOW, that was a tease. I saw dark night last night and no HBP trailer. The movie was good but it isn’t HP :)

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!! SO EXCITING!!! so it wasn’t that much, but it still gives me the chills. Hopefully the rumors about the real teaser on August 1st are real. I’m not a big “Mummy” fan, but I would def. watch it if it has the teaser! CAN’T WAIT!

Avatar Image says:

After months of waiting, THAT”S IT! There’s not even a picture! Come, on WB!

Avatar Image says:

that was it??? Oh come on WB!!! This is stupid!!!

Avatar Image says:

Thanks WB …sneers sarcastically. You made me so UN-excited for this film now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

With how many things we know have been cut from the book, they may not have that much left to put into a trailer.

Avatar Image says:

I guess I’m luckier than many of you because I knew it was just an advertisement, so I had no disappointment in that at all. Dumbledore’s voice gave me chills … it was so perfect.

Avatar Image says:

Well there’s your teaser folks, happy now ;) Sorry, I’m just finding this really funny. But yeah, I would like to see some footage at least….but I certainly wont be cursing WB for the wait, they must have their valid reasons.

Avatar Image says:

bounces up and down in frustration I can’t wait any looongerr!

Avatar Image says:

Yah, like 4realz, facundo. XS can’t they confirm a measley date for the teaser, even???

Avatar Image says:

It wasn’t even long enough to get through one bar of Hedwig’s theme!

Avatar Image says:

What a crock of hoo-eee!

Avatar Image says:

It wasn’t even long enough for an entire bar of Hedwig’s Theme!

Avatar Image says:

Wo-o-w. Way to go WB. eyeroll Not like that couldn’t have come out earlier? Maybe this means we’ll actually get something substantial soon?

It’s disappointing, but the line was a good one.

Avatar Image says:

Teasiest teaser evers! Can’t wait for more.

Avatar Image says:

that was booty, guys.

Avatar Image says:

I think it would be better to label it an IMAX promo, not including the word teaser or trailer so people don’t complain so much. Calling it a teaser trailer makes people compare it others teaser trailers with actual footage which leads to bad word of mouth about the movie.

Avatar Image says:

It would be funny if the line had been ‘Once again I must lead you like a pig one step closer to the slaughter, Harry’

Avatar Image says:

im in too minds, the nerd that i am. half of me wants to dance an obnoxious jig that we finally got SOMETHING, not counting the sneek peak w/ OotP. but the other half wants to check my stupid lattop @ WB in anger. but still, this getts me a little stoaked. but only a little :D vive xe

Avatar Image says:

So Cruel!

Avatar Image says:

Tease is about right. Epic FAIL.

TWILIGHT, BAYBAH!

OH MY GOSH I laughed so hard at that, it shouldn’t be funny, but oh wow too true, it struck me funny!

Avatar Image says:

Because that wasn’t an epic piece of crap.

Avatar Image says:

why have gambon talk at all if its going to last three seconds, and the dialogue is unfullfilling and uninspiring. if thats the tag line they choose to sum and hype up the film then im now seriously doubting the rest of this film will meet the expections that we all want it to achieve. Dark Knight teaser trailer was so much better. really impacted to the audience. it just looks like everyone apart of the harry potter films, including WB, has stopped caring.

Avatar Image says:

Figures… guess I have to wait for that horrible star wars movie to hit before I see a real trailer…

Avatar Image says:

Ok. I’m amending my past theory that they didn’t make a movie, and have all just taken pictures, to fool us all. I still think they did that, and they had Michael Gambon say a sentence into a microphone. Until I see picture and sound together (you know, like one of those modern, “talkie” movies), I’m not thinking it’s real.

Seriously, though, it was something! And I’m beginning to think that WB is employing great marketing genius. We’re all in such a fit, that by the time this movie comes out, we’ll be positively crazed. I hate it, but I love it!

Avatar Image says:

wow.That was certainly underwhelming. For the cost of that they could have kept Fleur and Bill in the script.Shows where their priorities lie. There comes a time when we all must choose between what’s right and what is pathetic.I see which way WB has chosen.

Avatar Image says:

Head Girl, I’m missing something in the marketing genius department here. They don’t have to win the fandom into going to see the movie. They have usalready. All they can do is potentially lose us by offending us. I fail to see the genius in that.

Avatar Image says:

just went to see The Dark Knight….no HP trailer.

Avatar Image says:

This was the teaser teaser trailer.

Avatar Image says:

i was the one who alerted them but they did not acknowledged me about the trailer… hmpfh…

Avatar Image says:

That’s it!?..man..it IS short <_<...but dumbledores words and voice was...awesome!!

Avatar Image says:

in a way this really is a teaser…because it really freakin’ teases me :P

Avatar Image says:

OK WOW :’( least we have something :)

Avatar Image says:

Becky! “This was the teaser teaser trailer.” HAHAHAHA

Avatar Image says:

This is so stupid. There are plenty of spectacular failures of movies that have come out in the last few weeks and will come out in the next few weeks that they could (have) tack(ed) it onto to boost viewership, why in the heck do we have to wait for the PARTICULAR spectacular failure that is Star Wars: Clone Wars???? They’re virtually guaranteeing fans will get disgruntled and see the trailer online just to spite them.

Avatar Image says:

not come on wb wake up warner bros

Avatar Image says:

i guessed the imax teaser would be short,but it wasnt sweet though.in fact it was quite pointless.but thanks,WB.now we shall wait-proper trailer.

Avatar Image says:

Ok, Massive letdown… but still cool!

Avatar Image says:

well it’s not much. but gosh i love that music!

Avatar Image says:

that’s it? A black screen, a voice of Dumbledore and the familliar hp-sound+ logo? blergh

Avatar Image says:

At this point I’m hoping that a few old Harry fans don’t go see HP6 because I can just imagine what it will be like sitting next to them at the movie theater. All everybody does is complain.. This was just a little something to get the imax vieweres to know that certain scenes will be in iMax 3D. Yes I know everybody has the right to their opinion but it’s getting old that we can’t enjoy anything.

Avatar Image says:

I just wanted to see the movie I love how they are mking us wait

Avatar Image says:

tarotx, I’m with you 100% – and if you know of an HP fansite where most aren’t so negative about virtually everything, please let me know! (lol)

Avatar Image says:

Hmmmm, well that was a bit anti-climatic :( especially after the months and months of waiting LMAO!

Avatar Image says:

Some people feel better complaining about anything and everything. Shame that you all just can’t relax and enjoy the stuff we do get when it comes.

Avatar Image says:

I dunno, me likey! Yeah, it’s frustrating to wait sio long for a proper trailer, but that was a nice 15 seconds. The music sounded really good—perhaps part of the new soundtrack? I think it sounded slightly different from what we’ve heard before. And a very nice quote from Dumbledore!

Avatar Image says:

Once again I must ask too much of you, SEVERUS.

Dumbledore didn’t seem to think it was too much to ask. Jeez louise.

Avatar Image says:

sometimes so little can say so much…

Avatar Image says:

@Jimi (pg. 3) Is that a real conversation from the script?? Where did you find that?!?

Avatar Image says:

Okay, even Twilight has it’s full trailer out and it comes out in December! WB is being such a tease!!! (pun totally intended)

Avatar Image says:

Why even bother, Warner Bros.? Was that supposed to satisfy us till something more substantial arrives?

Avatar Image says:

......It took them that long to release that?! Lol…

Avatar Image says:

How disappointing. I bet people in the theatres would miss it most of the time. I certainly did, I played it back twice to catch what he said.

Avatar Image says:

wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they need a full version so we know wat the movie will look so that we can be excited because i love HP so come guys get the full one but i just cant wait for the movie im pumped!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Seriously…...can anyway tell me what the lovely Mr Gambon said?

Once again….I must ask you????? LOL I’ve listened to it 3 times. Its like he’s got cotton wool in his mouth.

November is still a few months away guys and they’re feeding us the pictures regularly now, a trailer will arrive soon. WB are not idiots, they know how to build hype, place the product and so on. They’re probably enjoying stringing us along :-)

Roll on November :)

Avatar Image says:

What a waste of money! However, it was what everyone was saying, a whole lot of nothing. Sorry, but I’m going to have to see a LOT more to be motivated to see the movie.

Avatar Image says:

Personally I thought that was a fantastic teaser trailer. Especially for those who aren’t book readers (though I am). For someone like my Dad or my brother who watch the movies because my mom, sister in law and I watch them that was a nice way to show this is going to be a suspenseful dark movie. There is tons of time to see the trailer before the movie comes out.

And to sit and complain that WB isn’t doing their job and How could it possibly take this long and blah blah blah blah blah. Not a single one of us know what is going on in the editing room. Not a single one of us knows how long the CGI work takes (especially all the work on Dumbledore’s hand. Which is a LOT of work).

We’re getting some pretty spectacular pictures and if you haven’t noticed his hand isn’t in any of them. Why? Because they have to go back and computer generate it in almost every scene. Thats a lot of work and I highly doubt, considering how much Dumbledore is in this movie, that they want to leave him out of the trailer. Not to mention everything else. Plus they finished principle photography barely two months ago. Before you start spouting off that “a fan could do that” and all that crap, stop and think how much footage they have, how much they have to cut down and then decide what they want to send to the trailer company for them to chose from before they get anything (not to mention the re-edits after that).

Also, claiming that you’re going to not go see the movie because they are taking a long time to get the trailer out? Kind of a fair weather fan. What, Warner Brothers’ isn’t feeding you the trailer fast enough so you’re going to drop the series all together? Do me a favor then, don’t sit next to me in the theater, cause I plan on seeing this movie no matter what, simply because I’ve loved it for the last 10 years and I plan on continuing to love it. And I’d rather not have my movie ruined because you didn’t see a trailer fast enough.

Avatar Image says:

beckett why are you talking about dumbldores hand. i don’t even know why his hand is going to be CGI. i mean wouldn’t it have been easy just to use make up to create his difigured hand. now days filmakers are using any excuse to use special effects in a film. people don’t care. what happened to good old fashion old school visual effects. its makes me rage!!!

Avatar Image says:

i personally think its a great thing that WB isn’t giving out so much clips and photos and previews, like they did for the previous films. the less stuff they give out the better, as fans will be less tempted to look at them and ruin the film for themselves, before they have even seen it. the movie experinece will be better as well because there will be so much new things to enjoys. that could be one reason why so many, including myself, didn’t enjoy the fifth film as much as the others. because there was this mass splurge of previews after previews. trust me the less the better…

thought this still doen’t excuse the fact that the OOTP film was the worst of the series.

Avatar Image says:

I WANT TO SEE THE TRAILER NO MORE PICTURES…....... PLEASE

Avatar Image says:

well….that was…... intresting…..... BOOWHOOO!!!!!!!! talk about gettin excited ovr nothing!!! AHHHHHHHHHH

I (along with everyother flippin person who loves HP) want a REAL trailor!!!

Come on WB!!!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Utterly inadequate. It’s about time to see something.

Avatar Image says:

Completely underwhelming. C’mon, Warner Bros, that’s more tease than trailer. Give us a few visual snippets, can’t you?

Avatar Image says:

screams for trailer to come now I’m not like, obsessed with Harry Potter or anything, but when I found out about the new film being released at the end of November, I’ll be honest, I had to search for youtube videos! And now, I can’t stop watching them! This is the only book i haven’t read of the whole series, I don’t know why I skipped :D. Maybe I’ll go down to the library and read it before the movie comes out. But, I’m so excited for this movie! Yippee for the Half Blood Prince!

FAIL.

Honestly, I was so excited.

pff it isnt exiting… Ä° hope film will be great and will be without mistakes. No more actions ..Only necessary secenes.. WB must follow the book.

I like it. It’s a “teaser”, and that’s what it does: teases.

To Wingardium, who asked what Dumbledore said, it’s “Once again, I must ask too much of you, Harry”.

And really, I think that WB are just letting the hype from The Dark Knight (which is utterly amazing, by the way) die down a little before they launch the HBP publicity.

well, obviously warner brothers’ marketing is working very well: it’s getting everyone talking and wanting more. treat ‘em mean to keep ‘em keen… and i write this from my desk in a graphic design and marketing firm.

Avatar Image says:

“treat ‘em mean to keep ‘em keen” ... :-D

Yeah, maybe.

Also, I seem to recall all kinds of whining before OotP that we had got too MUCH in the way of previews, scenes, and interviews. Honestly, I remember many people saying that they felt they had already seen the movie before it came out.

There’s no pleasing us, is there?

Avatar Image says:

Maybe the fact there’s a teaser trailer is an omen that the REAL trailer will be here soon? Please, oh please?

Maybe it’ll come out on the 31st July for effect…

Avatar Image says:

Love it or hate it. That IS a teaser trailer. Remember the teaser for Episode 1 (Star Wars)? It was just Darth Vader breathing.

Avatar Image says:

omg. i thought it was awesome. it got me all pumped up. i CAN’T wait for the another trailer. :))

Avatar Image says:

I really hope that they’ll come up with a trailer before september… i mean, there’re already trailers for movies coming out in 2009! And i hope it’s not in front of STAR WARS: CLONE Wars (ha, repetition) cuz I really don’t want to watch it…no offense to those who like the animated version X{, but I think it ruins the whole STAR WARS movie story.

YAY a long time mo trailer! WOW thats the best trailer i’ve ever seen! Dumbledore is wise soon become sick he’s already sick.

Avatar Image says:

YAY a long time no trailer! WOW thats the best trailer i’ve ever seen! Dumbledore is wise soon become sick he’s already sick.

Avatar Image says:

wow, that was pathetic. I cannot believe they’re actually putting that in theaters. -shakes fist- come on, WB!

Avatar Image says:

Wooow.

They really pulled all the stops to put that one out… What happened did they train a monkey to make videos and then have him make that?

Because i think they did.

They shouldn’t have even bothered… but since they did they should have taken a bit more time and at least put a picture of harry in it or something… my goodness.

wow. it is TIME for a full length teaser trailer!

Avatar Image says:

Seriously, I’m quite happy they haven’t shown more. Remember the last time around? We’d seen almost all the interesting shots from Order of the Phoenix before it came out, with all the stills, and the lengthy trailer and all. I think it’s good if WB’s holding back a bit ;-)

Avatar Image says:

nora, right on! i agree. i don’t want to see any more, either! i hate how some film trailers are plastered all over tv and whatnot; you feel like you’ve seen the movie before it even comes out.

good goin, wb!

Avatar Image says:

Yea, that was brilliant .. ;)

I´m waiting for full trailer ..

Avatar Image says:

That was it ! who are the kidding that wasn’t even enough to get excited about I hope the actual trailer is better than that was if you can even call that a teaser.

Avatar Image says:

Today i read about daniel radcliffe and they say the official trailer (a real and not just a few words) will be released on august 1st so i hope msn has a good source to say that, i don’t know which movie is released that day do you???

Avatar Image says:

Very awesome!..from stories to movies!

Avatar Image says: happy halloween
