I agree this trialer looks like it has some unfinished parts for example McGonagall’s spell looks really fake, Bellatrix appears to be casting a spell, without the flash and color they usually add in the movies. Anyways this is awesome! now im goign to listen to the pottercast! :D

“but I am the chosen one”
Something right in the same “vein” as “Just because YOU have the emotional range of a teaspoon!”
ROFL!!!! Can’t wait for the movie! Thanks, ‘Leaky’

That last scene where Harry tells Hermione he is the “chosen one” is funny!

correct me if i’m wrong, but voldemort (ralph fiennes) does not make an actual appearance in this movie, so the flash of him is from either GOF or OOTP.. so i don’t really see how he would be creeping around hogwart’s hallways…
did anyone notice, that right after harry yelles: fight back you coward! and they show the cornfield back at the burrow, harry steps in front of ginny to protect her from greyback.. i’m sure it follows the scene where ginny is disarmed. awww
my thoughts on if the trailer softened the blow on the wb betrayal: i think a lot of people are feeling elated lately when we get pictures and snippets of the movie.. but i don’t buy it. first of all, this is not a confirmed official trailer, meaning wb did not release it, it got leaked. so wb did not give us anything. and even if they give the official trailer, it’s not an equal substitute for the movie we were already promised… so as excited as i am for this trailer and the movie, cause it looks great, i’m not letting wb off the hook

Hahaha! Not Ron and Snape, but Harry and Hermione and the book-whacking!

Still have not watched any trailer for this movie because I don’t want it spoiled. It sucks right now because I am missing out on all this commenting but it will pay off when I see the film next summer and it is all 100% new stuff that I’ve never seen before. But that’s just me, I am happy that everyone else is enjoying the trailer(s) so much.

That was amazing! I cant wait! Which makes absolutly peeved because the bloody movie does come out for another 8 months. Warner Bros. really knows how to screw things up. Oh well Its still going to be a wicked movie!!!!!!!
