Ladies and Gentlemen, now in glorious high res: The Unbreakable Vow with Snape (Alan Rickman), Narcissa Malfoy (Helen McCrory), and Bellatrix LeStrange (Helena Bonham Carter) in a scene from “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”

Thanks to WB who also sent us another high res photos as seen in the Entertainment Weekly preview we told you about earlier today, this of Young Tom Riddle in the Orphanage.

In case you missed it earlier, despite the film being rescheduled to July 17 of next year, the current issue of Entertainment Weekly has a lengthy HBP preview online. Be sure to check out this post for the scans, news about the scripts for Deathly Hallows, as well as a host of new images that surfaced today from the movie including new looks at Ron and Lavender Brown, and Harry and Ginny.

sigh, as if we’d still want these pictures after postponing the movie.. plus if they keep on releasing pics, they would end up giving away the whole movie.. i still want the movie to be released on november!

WHO CARES???? WB you are not going to “pacify us” with these now. It’s too late, you screwed up. The BOYCOTT IS ON. Change the date back or you will feel it on your bottom line.

Avatar Image says:

First of all, why does Narcissa have roadkill stuck to the top of her head? Secondly, the hi res photos aren’t going to make up for the epic fail that is WB’s decision making. And thirdly, wtf is with TWILIGHT taking over the previous Harry Potter release date

Avatar Image says:

Nice photos. I do hope they use this extra time (ahem, 11 months) to make the special effects, music, etc. even more amazing than they would’ve been…

Avatar Image says:

Narcissa looks like a reversed skunk! WTF! Why can`t they just stick to blonde freaking hair? UGHH!

Avatar Image says:

I just love the detail in Snape and Narcissa’s coats. Such a small waist that Narcissa.

I love the Draco pic and the Young Tom pic.

I want a hi-res of Ron and Lavender and the trio in the background with Snape and McGonagall (sp?)

I dont suppose they changed the look of Narcissa because a Picture of her got leaked. Or they are trying to make her more noticeably similar to her sister anyway I still think she will be good. Lets not start a fight over trivial stuff again. Look what they did to Slughorn. But I do agree why the hell show us these pics if we have to wait 11mos. Change the date back it will do good no matter when it is released. It just doesnt make sense that they are showing us a trailer and pics when we have to wait. Its like showing a baby candy it cant have. I still think though that Narciss should have those other clothes and hair on that we saw. Who cares if we already saw it. I mean I am not really upset but she did look better before.

Avatar Image says:

Usually I don’t care much with them messing with the look of the hair but really what is with Narcissa’s two toned hair . Come one if your going to move the movie 8 months from now you can st least get the details right WB. Narcissa is a blonde not a skunk You have 8 month now so get on your computers and fix that ugly hair you put on her.

Avatar Image says:

She doesn’t look anything like I imagined Narcissa Malfoy. Sorry but not impressed, she doesn’t look good at all. And what’s with the brown hair? Nowhere in the books does it state she has any brown hair. Not to be nit-picky but something as simple as this shouldn’t be that hard to screw up.

Avatar Image says:

Happy Birthday Evanna! You’re one of the best of the Potter actors/actresses! I can really get into the character of Luna because of you! You’re the best and I wish you a very special day! It’s so great that a big Potter fan got the part. I can’t wait to see you in the 6th movie! Have a great 17th birthday!

My disgust and disappointment is so great that I really don’t care about these new pictures. WB has killed all the excitement that I had about HBP . Actually, I just find these new releases to be depressing. I think I just need to go away from all this for a long while. :...(

Avatar Image says:

I don`t care much about hair details either, but since I`m mad at WB, I might as well complain about this. LOL. :D And Twilight taking over November 21, I have so many negative comments about that that Leaky would to kick me out just for saying them.

Avatar Image says:

Lookin’ good. I’m glad to see this chapter will be included in the movie if it’s ever released. Narcissa, those some pretty drama-full 2-toned locks you’re sporting….. So is the Half-Blood Prince video game going to get delayed too or do we get that in November and “Beedle the Bard” in December? And then maybe half a year later we’ll get the movie when enough IMAX theaters are constructed to make the WB the most money from this cash cow of theirs?

Avatar Image says:

I am so sickened by WB that I can’t even look at this!

Someone needs to print shirts with the WB logo and the statement “We Love Our MONEY

Avatar Image says:

Guys, this boycott thing has to REALLY happen if we want to win in this issue…no empty threats.

Anyway, the Unbreakable Vow scene needs some serious digital grading if that’s the way the scene is going to appear in the film….it looks like it happens in the daytime! No sense of atmosphere…oh well.

Avatar Image says:

Did anyone notice that the new IMAX 3D date for the 6th movie has been moved to Nov 21, 2009??? It’s off the IMAX link at the bottom of this website. http://harrypotter.warnerbros.com/harrypotterandthehalf-bloodprince/

WTF! Originally both the regular and the IMAX 3D movies were going to be this nov. 21. Now they’ve moved the regular to july and the imax one to the end of nov!!!! Screw them. What do they want? People to watch the one in July, then shell out another 15 dollars and see it again in 3D? When normally they would pick one, now they will probably watch both.

There is only so far you can push fans. Soon they realise it’s not worth it.

Avatar Image says:

I didn’t like the look of Narcissa either. Well, we’ll have to wait a whole year to see how she portrays her.

Avatar Image says:

I hate corporations like Warner Brothers that make fortunes off their products and then have no concern for the fans that pay for same. Pulling this delay cannot be justified except the desire for a bigger pay-load!!!! Boycott is the best idea I have heard yet. If we can get together on this one and spoil the box-office bonanza they expect by delaying to the summer onslaught for action flix, they deserve to be disappointed!!!!

If the delay was due to editing delays, and the product was going to be a better performance, then it would not hurt so bad. I would be happy to wait. I understand overestimated schedules, delays of that kind. But the blatant profit motive, a lousy excuse for the delay. “Twilight” needs boycotting as well!!!! Warner Brothers has done a terrible insult to us who have made the entire franchise such a success. We are fanatical about Potter, and they should not forget it.

WB SUCKS RIGHT NOW SO IM NOT TOO HAPPY WITH THEM.

And why does Narcissa have half brown half blode hair? shes supposed to have white bolde hair she’s as fair as her sister is dark right?

WB, you suck

Avatar Image says:

Maybe it’s because I am really upset at WB, but I didn’t like this picture at all. The characters are supposed to look upset, suspicious and hesitating. Helen McCrory doesn’t look at all like she’s just been begging Snape to save her only child from sure death. Actually, they look stiff, as if they were children playing some silly game. God, at the time, Snape thought he was pronouncing his own death sentence!! And he doesn’t look at all like it!!

Not to mention the hair. She looks like she couldn’t afford dyeing it all.

I am remembering now Makani’s drawing of that moment. It’s one of my favourites. It didn’t have a background, and Bella was not in it, but it was a very poignant image. Narcissa looked like a crying mother. When I compare a drawing, and a picture from a movie with real people and millions of dollars in it, and the drawing is still a million times better, I get a feeling something’s NOT GOOD.

Grr, BOYCOTT WB!!

To be honest right now I really don’t care for photos – it is going to take a lot more than photos to get me past being extremely angry with WB at the moment.

i love the look of lav lav,how they made her!and the whole h/g scene.dan is so cute.i didnt realize bonnie was same height with him.they made lav lav in such an obvious way as ‘the other woman’.lol.

thanks alot wb you have now ruined whatwas going to be a awesome birthday for me i am now boycotting opening weekend and will wait for it to come out on dvd ( hows that for box office sucess?) we dont need to se naymore pics of the movie we wont be seeing in november.

Avatar Image says:

I kind of agree with Eric, she isn’t how I pictured Narcissa, however I’m sure she will do a fine job!( Oh and the other post was meant for another article ,sorry)

Avatar Image says:

These photos are great, of course I still care. I wouldn’t be angry or dissappointed (sp?) if I didn’t. At least they realize that they are hurting us by delaying the HBP movie. They know that anyone who is on this site or is looking for photos would see it any time; the pictures are for us, the most dedicated fans. It’s still bad that we won’t be able to see the movie in November; but thanks to the WB for trying to make it up to us.

heh, turns out my blonde and black hair was correct for cosplaying narcissa at terminus…

Avatar Image says:

Who gives a crap anymore about images from a film that won’t be released for another year? Sod off, WB – we no longer care and if you think you can pacify this enormous fail of your part then you have joined the ranks of the Harmonians.

DELUSIONAL.

Avatar Image says:

narcissa’s hair looks god awful. D: it ages her like 10 years…and makes her look less pretty.

Avatar Image says:

...

After news of it being a year for the thing to come out… This is too painful… I’m gonna start working on my own HP stuff, to fix the hideous mistakes they made with these movies, and it may be done around the same time HBP is done…

Completely off topic, but does anyone wonder who put Xinhua’s name in the Goblet? That’s the real reason I came here… To make that joke among people who’d get it, but… This is too painful… Man… A freaking year… I will hopefully be in Japan by then.

Avatar Image says:

SInce their cancelation date, everything that would have been posibly exiting is utter rubish now for me. Whatever they will do or bring is boring and empty. I hope their money box for the movie will be empty too because of the worldwide boycott

Avatar Image says:

If you don’t care why take the time to post in the comments? Really people stop being over the top. Go a head and boycott Harry Potter film related stuff completely and all WB movies (since the bottom line is the only way to get the attention from companies of this stature) but whining isn’t doing anything but give the people who want to see these pictures a migraine

For me seeing the pictures makes me sad that the movie has been rescheduled for summer released. It looks like it’s going to be a darn good film.

Avatar Image says:

I’ve just realized, with Twilight taking Half Blood Prince’s place, and HBP going to July, there won’t be a Twilight/Harry Potter box office war :(

Avatar Image says:

Was looking forward to seeing this scene but it looks stupid. Narcissa is wrong in every way, seriously, and it looks almost comic in the photo. But that’s to be expected. WB are always putting jokes into the films when they are not appropriate. To be honest, I’m not even excited about this film any more. Usually I would watch trailers about 30 times, but I’ve seen the HBP one twice… and I know they’ll end up shifting it forwards another 6 months as soon as it gets to next summer. I think I’d be quite happy not to even see it. No problem…

Avatar Image says:

I’ve just had a thought – if WB are going to be releasing photos and clips every day for the next year in order to try to keep us quiet, we will have seen so much of the film that there will not even be any point in seeing it, so their plan will totally backfire anyways…

Avatar Image says:

We could at least boycott every film released next November; even October and December.

Narcissa’s hair and clothes are a disappointment, but the clothes in the film always have been for me.

Avatar Image says:

when I realise a picture of Snape does nothing to excite me then its time to accept the HP xperience is over. Thanks, wb :(((((((

Avatar Image says:

Whats the point in releasing pics now? Its a bloomin’ year away! :( WB, if this is an attempt to make fans feel better, its pretty pathetic and tactless!

Avatar Image says:

The_Duppy on page 1 has just described perfectly how almost everyone feels. I feel way too numb at present to absorb these interviews/pictures so soon after yesterday shocker. This will take a little time to subside and WB is only rubbing salt into our wounds. Best thing for WB to do is shut the hell up until we our rage subsides.

Its like a little child seeing an icecream van parked and the ice cream man smiling waiting for the child, the child rushes indoors to mummy for money, then comes running back gleefully, the ice cream man still smiling sees the child coming but as the child approaches, the Ice cream man starts the engine and drives several hundres yard down the road where he saw several kids playing.

We the fans represent the one child. The rest of the movie going public represent the kids down the road.

I tried to post this yesterday but it seems like Leaky was swarming with angry readers!!!

Avatar Image says:

before I would be: YAY! new pics!thank you WB!

ha ha ha….buuuuuuu oo,new pic, well,we have another 11 months,maybe we’ll see the whole film in pictures.

Avatar Image says:

Ok, so DOES DAVID YATES HAVE TO GET EVERYTHING WRONG????
Basically, he started of with a new teenage Riddle. Then, he got Slughorn to have no moustache at all.
Now, Narcissa has BROWN HAIR??
What’s up with that, dude? What’re you playing at?????
Maybe he forgot who the creator of Harry Potter is: IT’S JK ROWLING, AND NOT THE DIRECTOR
So he can’t go around, making stuff up. It’s hideous, all of it is. It simply sucks.
AND TO THINK, WE’LL HAV THE SAME DIRECTOR FOR DEATHLY HALLOWS AS WELL. wOO-wEE!! ( Dat’s just so sarcastic. )

Avatar Image says:

Too little far too late! Throw all the photos and interviews at us you want WB it will NOT as you said “pacifiy” us! I can’t even get excited about these pics, now if it were a few months ago we would have been freaking out with joy. To be honest the only thing I feel when I see these now is a mixture of fury/rage and a sad numbness. Its just not right. They have taken away one of the best parts of being an HP fan.

At first I wanted to boycott/petition/ect just because I was so disappointed and disgusted that they would change the date the way they did on the fans who made this franchise what it is, but now its a matter of principle! Its about not letting WB getting away with disrespecting us and thinking they can do anything to us and always get away with it. They can only get away with it if no one tries to stop them. If we don’t all stand up to them and do something now they will just continue to treat us this way at every chance they get in the future.

I’m also annoyed by news of Twilight moving and taking over our original release date because all it does is had fuel to the media’s Harry Potter vs. Twilight fire not to mention pouring salt into our fresh wound. I hope WB is paying attention, Twilight’s studio(Summit) actually seems to give a crap about their fans and that will surely work to their advantage!

Avatar Image says:

The movie date.
Like I need to say something on this, all of us are probably SCREAMING out here!
What, we hav to WAIT for 11 more months?
Months go like minutes, does it? Or do they think it like this?? What were we doing TILL now, SLEEPING? So WB realizes we need to WAIT AGAIN??
I just don’t get their plan. What do they want????
WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE, PLAYING WITH OUR FEELINGS LIKE THAT?

Avatar Image says:

Snape looks very good as always, but why is Narcissa dressed as a muggle, and what,s with the two tone hair? It,s an iron clad rule that the Malfoys are platinum or white blonde. She,s not at all how I imagined Narcissa, and am real mad that the opening date was pushed back to next July ! I,m very picky, especially about the Malfoys, and I want to see them exactly as in cannon. Well, I guess I,ll have to wait until next year.

Avatar Image says:

I hate WB i’ve been waiting and waiting and now this, pictures are not enough. what are we supposed to do with the picture look at them until july 2009.what they did will backfire on them, i can’t wait for someone to just leak the movie, can someone do that please and let’s make an unbreakable vow to boycott the movie!!!!

Avatar Image says:

I just had to post again since I needed to vent some more. Snape is very hot, but Narcissa looks like a bag lady. Her hair is a mess , and in cannon Narcissa never dresses like a muggle. Narcissa Black is a pureblood , and an aristocrat, and would never dress like a muggle.I was really looking forward to seeing the movie, but no, because of profit have to wait until next July!!! If they made Narcissa look this bad, i,m afraid what they,ll do to the flash backs of the young Lucius. if I,m picky about Narcissa, I,m ten times more so about Lucius – I,d be even more mad if they showed Lucius without his gorgeous plaitnum locks

Avatar Image says:

Anyone think they will change her look? Or is it too late. I gave out my theory as to why I thought they changed it. She did have platinum blonde hair and aristocratic clothes on when we saw her before? I dont know what happened. Only its probably because the pics got leaked – I dont know. I am not to picky about her clothes because its pretty and green and I always love the costumes. I liked her dress before better. But what the hell did they do to her hair- I mean we saw it long and blonde. We dont know its not long shes standing sideways. But the color needs to change back. And its bugging me because we even saw a pic of her with long blonde hair and a regal dress from behind a camera filming. Im so confused. I will still see it because like others said I’ll have cooled off by next summer. GRRR. They still better change it back if we petition enough. Previews even say November still!

Avatar Image says:

I don’t get why voldemort has to look so creepy. He looks like a zombie. Ican’t believe they switched the movie back 8 months! NOW we have to two ttthirds of a year.

Avatar Image says:

Holy sh**! WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO NARCISSA AND HER HAIR?! Narcissa was the new character I was most excited to see and they ruined her! What happened to the look she had in that leaked photo? It was perfect. She actually looks a bit dare I say old. Too old looking for the comment Harry made about if she didn’t have her nose stuck up so high in the air she would have been attractive. The suit is fine, but YOU CANNOT HAVE A MALFOY WITHOUT THE SUPER SLEEK PLATINUM BLONDE/WHITE HAIR! Her husband has better hair than she does! Perhaps next time Jason Isaacs could play both Lucius and Narcissa, even that would be more convincing than this! Also isn’t Narcissa supposed to have long hair? First Slughorn and now this, sheesh are these people illiterate or something? Bellatrix looks perfect as usual (she’s always looked exactly how I imagined her, No one could play her like Helena). Clearly Bella has cleaned up a bit since OOTP, which is accurate since she’s no longer in Azkaban.

Avatar Image says:

hey, Professor Potter, when I was a kid, there WAS an icecream truck that regularly came through our street and the guy did exactly what you described: stop, wait a few minutes and then speed off! Clearly he was getting his jollies!

Avatar Image says:

Everyone who is talking boycott, petition, etc., to get the movie switched back to November is wasting their time, in a certain respect. Stephenie Meyer’s site has been updated to say that Twilight has taken advantage of WB’s stupidity and moved its release date up 3 weeks into HBP’s old spot. So, even if they did change their minds, WB won’t switch HBP back to that same weekend. It’s Box Office suicide. But I think there is still some merit to trying for an earlier date than July 2009. If the movie is finished, or close to, there’s absolutely no reason to wait 8 extra months for a release. Maybe February or March? Anything has got to be better than waiting another whole year.

PS: I, for one, am enjoying the new pictures, I just hope WB doesn’t release too much and spoil the film. However, Narcissa’s hair looks ridiculous. Whose henious idea was that?!

Avatar Image says:

What I don’t understand is why they don’t just release HBP THIS year and then use next year’s slot to release DH pt. 1?! ugh.

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!! I dont care about these pictures. cuz for one i still am not over the movie release change. For two what is with Narcissa’s hair? For three(this one makes me want to run in front of a moving truck) harry potter 6 is being replased by twilight!!! Twilight comes out on November 21st now!!!! That is soooooo stupid!!!!!!!! i hate this!!!! I am gonna just ditch harry potter for now and go listen to the new jonas brothers cd!!!(which everyone should buy)

Avatar Image says:

i seriously hope the movie leaks cuz i promise if it does i wont watch it on the big screen!!!

Avatar Image says:

i’m not as enraged as most people here, more disappointed, but i’m still not excited over these pictures. because it is just like ‘oh, there’s a reminder of that fabulous movie that is finished now and won’t be seen by the people who care about it most for eleven months. neato.’ oh well, at least mr horn loves me.

Avatar Image says:

I don’t normally care about the hair thing either. People are always in such an uproar about such an inconsequential thing. HOWEVER, if they took the time and care to color Helen’s hair why couldn’t they have done the thing properly? All of you who said she looks like a skunk – very accurate description. Whatever. I doubt I’ll see the movie now anyway after what WB has done. The movie I see in my head whenever I read HBP is much better than they can come up with anyway.

Avatar Image says:

I’m disgusted with WB. I AM BOYCOTTING ALL OF THEIR MERCHANDISE, FILMS, AND OTHER VARIOUS PRODUCTS. I will not see the film, and I will not buy their crap, or see any other film they shoot out at us. This is NOT BECAUSE OF THE WRITERSSTRIKE! WHAT A LOAD OF *t! AND YES, Narcissa’s hair is brown, and Tom Riddles is actually light brown! THANKS ALOT YOU MONEY GRUBBING IDIOTS! and Harry’s eyes, STILL BLUE!

Avatar Image says:

boycotts the only way waner brothers you asked for it. i’m wondering what jo has to say about this? any one else curious

Avatar Image says:

Caitlin, I was thinking the same thing about Jo. I even mentioned it in a comment I made in the previous post about Alan Horn. I really am surprised none of the media have contacted her or her rep for comment about the push back since the press normally do ask her for comment whenever WB makes a big decision like when they split DH in two they contacted her. WB really reminds me of the Ministry these days! Alan Horn however, is Voldemort. haha

Avatar Image says:

Still a poor poor casting decision by WB…one of the 1st poor casting decisions I think.

This Narcissa looks OLDER than Bellatrix…and Bella is 4 years older with Andromeda squished between them…and Bella’s been to AZKABAN!! Just a pile of rubbish, I hope Helen McCrory’s acting can pull the character off, cos her look doesnt!

And it doesnt matter at what time of year WB release Potter…it’ll still make millions for them! But lm also wondering whether, if Potter 6 had been released in Nov, Dan Radcliffe performing on Broadway during the promo stuff for Potter 6 has made a little effect on the release date?

Avatar Image says:

I’m afraid that judging from these boring photos that the HP franchise has jumped the shark. We’ll have to see – but if the fan base has to wait another 8 months and the film turns out to be a outrageous, not true to Rowling’s vision, and mediocre like OotP – it will enrage everyone who waited for it. It better be better than OotP or else WB will see a revolt like no other. But like I said – if not, Fonzie el jumpo el sharko!

Boring. WB will be unable to excite fans for this movie now. new images mean nothing.

Avatar Image says:

Gee thanks WB for changing Narcissa’s perfectly fine look we already saw and know you gave her. NOW since everyone is so pissed at you they are taking out their anger on Helen again. JHC. I really dont think I should even argue I know some of you are just unhappy with the pics because you are very very X100 upset like me that it was moved. But Helen is still Narcissa and I am sure she will look like her no matter what. Did you know why Alan doesnt talk about Snape?- because of this reason, he says if he talks about his character before somebody reads the books, they might be like ” thats not what I THOUGHT OR PICTURED was going to happen. We all go somewhere in our minds and all have our own mental visions. Of all the HP fans how could WB tend to us all perfectly so we are all happy. Cant. But like I said eventhough I dont know what those other fine images are we saw were or what the hell happened to them we will have to live with her as Narcissa for this movie and the last. I know she can pull off the attitude I have seen her she is a great actress. Hopefully they change her look.

OOTP is a wonderful, beautiful movie. It’s great heart is more important than whether or not Hermione and Ron became prefects, or a room full of brains.

Avatar Image says:

oh my god!! What the hell!!! why is her hair not blonde!!! wtf i am so mad at wb, they are soo stupid!!!! she looks ridiculous!!

Avatar Image says:

if they have enough photos to keep putting out there why don’t they just release it at its usual date.

Avatar Image says:

Oh dear, she looks like a deranged badger. I hope she’s read the books so the character’s at least reminiscent of Narcissa if the hair’s wrong. Not impressed with the delay.

Avatar Image says:

WTH they are thinking with giving us all of these pictures???? THE BATTLE IS ON!!! You can’t change it unless you give us the movie back in November or you will feel the anger of thousands HOWLERS!!!

Avatar Image says:

And at least if they are making us wait soo long they can make the movie better. Coz’ Dumbledore’s hand is white, and it is supposed to be blackened. But I don’t care those facts I WANT the movie in NOVEMBER or sooner if you manage to do that :) I WANT IT THIS YEAR!!!

Avatar Image says:

I hate Nacissa’s hair…..

Avatar Image says:

While were all upset about the new movie being postponed, i know I am I was planning a whole trip to see it with my friends because we’re all going to separate colleges, can anyone who visits leaky really truly say that they won’t got see the 6th movie when it comes out next summer? Yes we’re upset that it wont be as soon as me hoped, but we need to keep up the hype, don’t stop the fandom because of one silly date change. People are saying that since the books are over the HP fandom is going to die, don’t prove them right. Be just as excited about the movie when it comes out next summer as you would’ve had it come out in November. I know i will be.

Her hair looks okay to me, the library looks the way I imagined it, but hey, WHO CARES….we won’t be seeing the movie for another year.

Last week I would have been excited to see these pictures. Now WB’s has ruined all the anticipation, because what’s the point? No one gets excited about Christmas in January, for heaven’s sake. It’s too far away for people to have that much emotional stamina.

Way to go, you just killed HBP, WB’s

I can say that I won’t be seeing it in the theatre’s. I’ll but the DVD next Christmas, but WB’s will not be counting me among their summer profits.

Avatar Image says:

I agree with you Kelsey. I know everyone will go and see it. WE are all just super super heated and angry to the fullest extent, we all could Aveada Kedavra WB. But next summer which is an unfortunately long time from now, we all know we will drag our Potter happy butts into the theatres. Do it for the actors and actresses if not WB. Alot of them have fun bringing our series to life – Im sure this wasnt their plan.

Do you think they will change Narcissas look back the way it was?

most of you make me embarrassed to be a harry potter fan. quit being whiny little babies.

“whiny little babies” don’t care about social justic issues, which this very much is. Warner Brothers has moved a completed films release date for PROFIT, pure and simple. Not to ensure the film is artistically better, not for the sake of any of the actors or memebers of the production team, but for money.

BellaSnape, boycotting the film is not going to stop Deathly Hallows from going into production, nor will it change what the cast or crew get paid. WB will throw the same amount of money at HP as they always do. There is nothing about this that suggests we are not supporting the actors, as long as the actors can read, and see that our boycott is directed at Warner Brothers in an attempt to sabotage their profits. The actors know their wage for Deathly Hallows will not be affected, and that the fans do not hate them.

The only difference our boycott will make is to show them that they can’t pull stunts like this without financial loss, if we manage our boycott the right way and hundreds of thousands of would-be HP watchers, most of whom are devoted fans who would see the film multiple times and be overrepresented in the gross, will follow through with the boycott. Creating a significant dent in the HBP gross will also require us to spread the boycott beyond the core fandom and convince our friends and family not to go either, I have already been successful in doing this myself and will follow up closer to release time.

Many of my friends are quite opinionated when it comes to corporate greed and the placing of the shareholder above the consumer, the casual HP watchers are happy to boycott and the devoted fans were convinced when they understood why WB made the move and that they needed to make a moral stand on the issue. If we make a united stand everything will come right in the end. This is the only way to bring WB to justice.

Kelsey, we’re not killing the fandom. We’re trying to get them united against WB’s blatant act of corporate greed. Where I come from, most of us think capitalism is fine as long as you balance it with social justice.

We are however, killing the hype. That’s because hype for the film is counterproductive to our mission, which is to ensure that as few people as possible see HBP in the cinema.

What is wrong with this picture? oh yeah Twilight and Harry Potter are both going to be good movies and I bet a lot of people would see both of them (I sure would), even if they were playing at the same time. I can’t believe they have the film ready and then make us wait SIX WHOLE FREAKIN MONTHS!!!!!! So if a boycott is what it takes, boycott it is. TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW, POST IT ON THE INTERNET, WE CAN DO THIS PEOPLE!!!!

Avatar Image says:

@ MattJ- I never said anything about a boycott or petition. So I dont know what your speaking of. All I simply said was I know that this movie is still going to do really well dispite some saying they no longer will go to it. That isnt my Question though my question is: Do you guys think they will change Narcissas Hair back the way it was. And can anyone tell from the picture if its long? She is standing sideways and it got cut off.

Avatar Image says:

BellaSnape: Not going to a movie is called a boycott, dear. And whether or not HBP stlll does well depends on HOW MANY people will no longer go to it, which will have to be a figure in the hundreds of thousands to make a real impact. That’s my goal and it’s completely possible.

“Social justice issues”? Don’t make me laugh. Grow up and stop whining – there are more important things in the world than the release date of a film.

Avatar Image says:

the pics are wack, as in not anything special. why release a trailer and then push the movie back a year? it makes no sense and it is offensive to the fans who were waiting and thinking we’re gonna get our movie in a few months. WB are a bunch of greedy bastards and they know fans are not gonna boycott the movie. hey WB why not charge $20 – 50 extra to the films since your hard up on cash!

Avatar Image says:

you can’t boycott the movie , you know it and i know it. no matter if they pushed it back to nov 2010. it just blows. this just means you have to get it on bootleg after you see it the 1st time – atleast thats what im gonna do. these movie studios forget that like music, people can cheat the system without cheating too much of the experience once you have the right size tv. the internet and bootleg dvds.

Avatar Image says:

So, I go on vacation for 2 weeks and a half, and this is what I get??? The movie postponed and pictures I don’t really care about now …

Avatar Image says:

I DON’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!.HBP will release on the 17th July of 2009,WB has to pay for this, this boycott should happen REALLY THE NERVE OF THEM!. I was so excited about it and now what has happened? This is a really really really nasty NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

im deeply saddend by the postponment. i would love to participate in a boycott. but i dont think many people will actually do it since its almost a year away, a year is a long time to be mad enough. plus when there are only a few months left i feel the previews, pics, prapaganda will be even larger than it would be if it were releasing in nov. so many people will forget all about the anger and just get wrapepd up in the excitment.. plus. i was and still am very angry.. but now i have more time to make my costume for when i go see it. it sucks. i feel it just as much as everyone else… shoot, my liscence plate for my van is Hrcrux7 and theres a ministry of magic plate frame.. plus im into the costumes and stuff.. so im a big fan. but im also an adult and i know how things work. yes im angry. but i will still go and see the movie.

and… where the heck is this unbreakable vow pic!!! i cant fidn it anywhere!

Avatar Image says:

mugglemom…the pic was not available yesterday when I looked, but I just saw it today. Maybe too much traffic? Anyway, “reverse-skunk”. Too funny.

Tom Felton must be well pissed off, that’s two movies he’s got in post-production.

The Disappeared, has … er disappeared as well.

Personally I never watch the HP films in the cinema – I prefer the books – well actually I prefer fan fiction now – I just watch the film on dvd when I get given a copy of it. The only one I actually bought was Chamber of Secrets and that was for the Lucius / Draco scene which was cut and I wanted to have, since it’s about the best scene in the film.

When I do have them on dvd I just fast forward through looking for blond hair and black hair (Malfoys and Snape). To me the films have always sucked, big time. (Why oh why did Dudley not have the right colour hair?). I don’t expect this one to be any different.

I think the only reason Lucius is so in character is that Jason Isaacs knew the character and wanted to play it as the books. Presumably Helen doesn’t know Narcissa as well, or was not quite so insistent. It’s a shame since her long blonde hair is a feature in most of the mentions of her in the books.
