This trailer features Harry and Dumbledore going on one of their missions; Slugnorn's class, Ron passing out, a return of Pyromaniac Seamus, Ron's "in love" with Romilda scene, Luna in her Spectrespecs, Tom at the orphanage, Harry being called the Chosen One several times, Harry and Dumbledore at the cave, Quidditch, the young Tom Riddle, a smoky Dark Mark, a scene of Death Eater excitement at Hogwarts, a pale and worried-looking Draco, the just-before-kiss for Ginny and Harry, Harry and Hermione talking on top of the Astronomy tower, the fire scene at the cave, "Fight back, you coward!", Snape, Death Eaters destroying a bridge, Harry trapped as Dumbledore faces Snape, and a score that sounds much different than those that have come before.

Having now watch this a 100 times now, in slow motion frame by frame on quicktime, I’m sorry to say it, and I’m honestly not the sort of person who makes innuendos, but when Ron is shown in the quidditch scene, the angle of the broom and his victory pose makes him look like he has…um…“scored”….LOL..I;m soo sorry…

Lol. Hermione’s shirt when she is crying looks a little immature for her. But whatever, I’d wear it anyday anyway. Haha. (: I bet she’s crying about Ron and Lavender snogging. There’s a staircase behind her …

How GREAT is that sweeping shot of tiny Dumbledore on the rock in the ocean? Ahhh….very Lord of the Rings! But that’s a good thing!

And the bridge attack scene looks very cool, as well.

However, I hate what they’ve done to the memory scenes…the cinematography in the original teaser trailer was spot on, but the filmmakers had to go and mess it up with CG effects. Ugh!

And the music! Why can’t Nicholas Hooper write this kind music? Isn’t it about time that choral versions of themes were inserted into the score? If a choral Hedwig’s Theme is not in DH, I will be disappointed.

HOLY CRAP!!! That was AMAZING! Can’t wait for it to come out. Gosh still 244 days to go.

The death eaters are flying through Trafalgar square…I’m frightened…so close to my home ;) Oh and if you move frame by frame through the first apparition, the images are most disturbing! And thats the Millenium Bridge falling. Its ironic because when the bridge was first opened in 1999 (The Thames River first walking only bridge), it was unexpectedly swaying when many people walked on it making them feel sick! Bit of a PR disaster as it was meant to mark the Millenium. Now those damn death eaters have dealt its last sway! Oh what a feast of a trailer. I’m supposed to be out dining and drinking with friends right now but I aint going…noo nooo, I have me a fabulous HPB trailer to dissect…

I hate how this trailer is going to come out with Twilight. Now Twilight will do better in the Box Office because HP fans just want to go see it.

So Twilight has a use after all! Love that Seamus is back blowin stuff plus what is with Hermione’s hair in the potion room, oh oh and she’s crying over Ron brilliant! Oh and is that Luna walking wih Harry through Hogwarts gates, she walks like she’s got a peg leg. The effects on the memory scenes are amazing. This isn’t fair I wish I could say this was coming in a week! Tres poo
