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.

Hopefully, I’m not let down, but this one looks like it might be a lot better—less rushed/choppy—than the last two.

Hermione’s hair was only bushy at the end of the potion lesson. I think she and the other kids are facing harry as slughorn hands him the lucky potion. We have seen a picture of that.

The memories are different in this film then they are in the book. There is only the memory of dumbledore first meeting voldemort and then slughorn’s memory in the tampered with and untampered with versions. I would have liked to see the gaunts and the cup and the locket, but what can you do. I cannot believe they aren’t mentioned at least.

The bridge that collapses is the millenium bridge in london. It is the only pedestrian bridge in london. You can see St. Paul’s and the tate modern in the shot, wicked cool. It seems like the bridge was attacked by death eaters though and not dementors.

Regardless, the trailer was awesome.

I LOVED the trailer (but I still hate WB). This trailer was really funny, yet strangely serious at the same time. I was surprised at the amount of new material they showed because I thought they would have waited until closer to next July. Also, am I the only one that has noticed that they really like to use the smoky mist effect on a lot of people and objects?

Where is the PotterCast discussion on this?

This trailer is fantastic. I love the shot of Draco by the mirror and the Harry/Ginny kiss shot (squee!!!). Both were beautifully lit. Actually, everything was really beautiful looking. I think this will be the best film yet.

Suddenly I have the urge to brave the giggling crowds and go to see Twilight when it comes out . . .

Oh, I forgot to mention, fantastic trailer overall and I love what they’ve done with the music. It represents the second wizarding war perfectly.

it’s funny…I never realized how different this plot is from the other books—but look how much emphasis the movie seems to be putting on Harry having to get the real memory from Slughorn.

I, like Harry, tend to not think about that part when I think about HBP. don’t take it very seriously

Look at this screencap of Harry, Dumbledore, the grits teeth crystal cave and INFERI!

Creepy (:

That was quite amazing. They’ve really epic’d the Hedwig Theme, and it sounds fantastic. The look and feel of the movie, judging from these scenes of course, seems very dark and dreary, with the right amont of humour thrown in. Those scenes from the Tower were chill-inducing… wow, just amazing. Hopefully, it lives up to the hype, and June comes sooner.

I just read EVERY SINGLE POSTING ON THIS!!!!! OMG! Professor Potter, you’ve got it, kiddo! Let’s see if I got all the “major words” right: OMG, WOW, Sqeeee [I still didn’t spell it right, did I ?] Fantastic, awesome,and I think that’s about all I could handle! Don’t worry, folks, about “seeing everything in the trailer” I think this is only the “tip of the iceburg”….it’s only going to whet our appetites for this “freaking awesome” movie! HP Otakus, of the world, unite! WE’RE ON A ROLLLLLLL!

did anyone else feel like that was kind of awkward to watch because they hated the background voice, some of the acting felt like a completely different genre or movie, and some of the scriptwriting was not at all like the book?
im very worried
