Yeah, it’s a great trailer (lots of nice Ron action), but come on, this is clearly a shameless attempt by Warner Brothers to get a load of HP fans to go and see Twilight. Which, by the way, only about 3 people outside of the States give a flying toss about. I wouldn’t even have heard of it if I didn’t read the occasional HP forum.

Plus – how short our memories are – WE WERE SUPPOSED TO SEE THE WHOLE FILM NEXT WEEK! Not yet another trailer that just gives away all the surprises. Honestly, at this rate, by the time the film actually comes out, we’ll have seen the entire film. I don’t want to know wverything that happens before the film comes out. I WANT TO SEE THE FILM!

Someone asked about the dead spider scene. I think i remember the people who saw the film saying that scene was in there, but they just showed the spider through the window. Then harry talks to slughorn about the memory and the person who saw the film thought that the lines were a lot like the lines in the book in this scene. I actually don’t remember many people saying much about this scene so i might be getting confused but this is what i remembered.

I think harry says ‘Actually sir, after all these years, I just sort of go with it’ right before he and dumbldore apparate.

I think hermione’s harry is only going to be like that for the one scene. I don’t really like the bushy hair so i am fine with that though it was a good way to show hermione’s frustration at being outdone by harry in a lesson.

Does anyone remember if anyone who saw the film said whether or not snape actually says avada kedavra in the film when he kills dumbledore? I hope he does. It looks like we had a shot of that moment in this trailer and it doesn’t look like he is speaking.

When Ginny almosts kisses Harry and then it cuts to another scene is that the kiss in the r,o,r or is that with the shoelace scene when they almost kiss and then the death eaters attack the burrow. It looks like the almost kiss after the shoelace scene because u can a see a Christmas tree in the background. So I’m guessing it’s at the burrow.

Oh, the Quidditch is what is really exciting me…I can’t wait for Ron to really come into his own! Everything looks terrific in this film, that’s for sure.!

That expression on Dan’s face (after Ron tells him to introduce him to romilda) is brilliant! just how I imagined it in the book. I wish we could see the movie this year.

@ Flora – Why would WB want us to go see Twilight? It’s by an entirely different studio. It’s not a WB film. It’s by Summit Entertainment I believe.

I think the majority of the HP community is over the date change now. After all, it is just a movie. :p
