The April 2008 issue of Nick Magazine contains a preview of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince including a new ad for the movie as well as a new photo of the trio. In this photo, you can see the trio of Harry (Dan Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson), and Ron (Rupert Grint) sitting in the Gryffindor Common Room, with Harry holding what appears to be his potions book. The new issue of Nick magazine will be on stands next week. We are trying to obtain clearer images of this and will update with more when we can. Update: Thanks to our affliate RonandHermionesource.com you can see a much larger version of the trio photo, here.

Thanks go to amieam, and everyone who emailed regarding this!

WOO HOO! I think they look so great!! Bring on the pics, man! :D I love Ron’s position, lol.

Oh, and I can already hear the whining about the hair- so, please, do everyone a favor, and try not to do it. :P If you’re worried about Emma’s supposed ‘blondness’, it’s looks to me like it’s just the lighting.

Avatar Image says:

yay! 4th? :D

Avatar Image says:

Any chance that while you’re asking for a hi-res crosses fingers that you could also ask about the rumoured teaser trailer being released on the 9th May with Speed Racer and then online on the 12th? Other sites are reporting it.

Avatar Image says:

I like Harry’s sweater. It’s rare we get to see him in something light-colored.

happy sigh Oh, our lovely Trio. Can’t wait to see you guys on the big screen in 247 DAYS!!!

Avatar Image says:

I didn’t think Emma’s hair looked all that blond because Dan’s hair looked lighted too, like it was the light. Even if it is, on the plus side Dan’s hair looks better :D

I just love the look on Hermione’s face and Ron’s slouch: yay canon characterization!

Avatar Image says:

yoohooo new pic, I was starting to worry about the lack of news, The trio looks great, Dan looks handsome, Emma looks too girly and blonde for hermione and Rupert looks gorgeous and very manly. COME ON WB, IS THAT ALL YOU GOT, GIVE US JUICY PICS RON / LAVENDER / HERMIONE AND HARRY / BONNIE!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

I meant to say ” looked lighter too.”

Avatar Image says:

247 days… ha ha, not that anyone’s counting down or anything…. _

Avatar Image says:

YIPPEEEEE!!! Can’t wait for more, more, more!! They look fabulous, and yes for canon characterization!

Avatar Image says:

Gosh, it looks like the Gryffindor Common Room is not a “peanut-free zone”. :D

And yeah, Tina, I’ll be the unofficial countdown clock till Leaky gets theirs up. I’m -anal-annoying that way. :D

M-B-W

Avatar Image says:

OMG Dan is stinkin-linkin hott!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

We really do need to get over the fact that Emma Watson’s hair is not the brown color that Jo Rowling wrote about. Besides, Harry is supposed to have BLACK HAIR and GREEN EYES. As far as I know, Dan’s hair has always been dark brown and his eyes a gorgeous blue.

It really DOES NOT MATTER!

Avatar Image says:

@LILO and samantha: lol.

Okay, did anyone else read the little description-y things? Because I was wondering if any of you thought that it sounded tlike they were saying that it was Ron’s first time being a Keeper (total pun). It bothers me, even though it’s technically true according to the movies.

Avatar Image says:

Hmph. Talk about boring pictures!

The photo of the trio looks like every other trio-in-the-common-room pic we’ve seen from all the other films. I wanna see something new! How about some stills of Ginny, or Narcissa, or the new fight scene, or really anything other than the trio sitting around looking the same as always..?

And that poster… yikes. Doesn’t get much less creative than that. That had better not be the teaser poster or I will be truly disappointed.

Wow, I sound totally negative here… sorry! Continue on with your squeeing everyone. :p

Avatar Image says:

YESSSSSSSS FINALLY A PICTURE !!! i was worried we were never going to see any its been like 4 months since that other one!! SO EXCITEDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Amy S, I doubt that’s a real teaser poster- it’s just a little made up ad for a kids magazine, I wouldn’t worry. And this is just one pic- there’s many more ‘official’ stills to come, there WILL be original stuff, I guarantee you. ;)

Dan’s sweater looks comfy, he looks so adorable! And, hmm, looks like there’s a little space for someone to sit on Rupert’s lap… ;D

Avatar Image says:

Haha. Amy, I agree. I like the picture and all and it’s great to see the trio. BUT it would be nice to see something different, like a picture of Narcissa or Slughorn. Maybe even a picture of the new quidditch team with Harry, Ron, And Ginny.

Is it just me or do WB seem kind of stingy with the promotional stuff this time around? The sneak peeks were great but that was in December and ever since there really has not been much official news released by the studio. It’s weird! I hope this is a sign they’re FINALLY going to release more pictures soon.

Avatar Image says:

I’LL SIT ON RUPERT’S LAP!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D

lol the pic’s a little boring, but I’m happy with any news, really.

Dan looks adorable in his sweater ::huggles:: :D

O H M Y M O T H E R O F A B A N S H E E A N D H O U S E E L F !

Avatar Image says:

They all look fantastic.Does this mean that we will start to see more photos from WB. I do hope so. As for looks does it really matter about hair colour and eye colour, I DON’T THINK SO>. We all love Dan’s gorgoeus blue eyes,

Avatar Image says:

Yay for OPPUGNO!!! (and all those awesome Latin verbs)

AND YAY FOR OUR FIRST TRIO PICTURE (which always seems to be released before all of the other official big ones). Remember the GoF one at the Gryffindor table? And the OotP one where they’re at the Hog’s Head?

YEAH. This better mean pictures will be arriving soon!!!

((can’t stop wondering and squealing!!))

Avatar Image says:

lolz, am i the only one that noticed that it looks like dan is flipping us all off in the picture? or am i just looking for weird things like that to say? that was rhetorical, dont respond to that. anywho…IM SO FREAKIN EXCITED!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

IMO, Emma’s hair is brown enough. Its not mouse brown, but its brown. More importantly, it looks pretty bushy! Sufficiently thick to say the least. Im happy with that!

Avatar Image says:

Oh! And the preview mentioned the birds hermione sends flying at Ron. Hopefully thats a tip from the movie and not just the magazine recounting the event in the book (i.e. it really is included)

Avatar Image says:

I like Harry is in a light color he looks very good. We saw a little of that at the end of OOTP in the last scene where he had that light shirt under the brown jacket. Ron looks great too. I go sit on his lap he looks Yummy. Are Ron’s pants short? That would be a great detail because the books mention how his Pajama pants are always short so I would assume his regular clothes would be like that too since he gets hand me downs all the time. I think this group of movie people really pays attention to more book details then 3&4 did. Hermione looks just as cute as ever. I am really looking forward to more photos and the movie of course.

Avatar Image says:

CAN’T WAIT!!!! Hopefully more info will come soon!!! Harry Potter is my life!!! HBP hear here they come!!1 HP Rocks forever more!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

I agree the picture is a bit dull, but at least it’s not a shot of Hagrid’s hut from a great distance. Remember when the first 3 or 4 movies came out, that was ALWAYS the subject of the first pictures we saw. So I’m just grateful we’re not having to look at that damn hut again, LOL.

I hope this means we’ll be getting more pics soon. I’d especially love to see Slughorn, or even the Quidditch team with Harry as Captain, Ron as Keeper, Ginny as Chaser, etc.

Avatar Image says:

LOL I could already hear “EMMA’S HAIR IS BLOND! I HATE WB!” but fortunately no one has flipped out ; ) ... THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY! I want more…more pictures…MORE!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOW! Oh, and you can all go away girls, I’LL sit on Ruperts lap… JK JK :D I’m just so excited !

Avatar Image says:

cool!

Avatar Image says:

Ashley said: “So I’m just grateful we’re not having to look at that damn hut again, LOL.”

I agree!!! LOL! In all those movies I was like…”oh…Hagrid’s hut…okay… I’ll go now…” Sorry, I’m just so excited! Rupert looks soooooo hot, and Dan looks soooo hot too and Emma looks cute and her hair is definitely thicker!

Avatar Image says:

I forgot to say: You girls can feel free to fight over Rupert’s lap all you want. Me, I’m much more interested in slipping into that little nook under Dan’s arm…. :D

Avatar Image says:

Cristipotter, about the Emma hair complaints, I think it’s cause I warned ‘em on, like, the 2nd comment of this post, haha. :P

Woohoo, more pics PLEASE!

Avatar Image says:

Looking at the larger version of the picture, I’m suprised by how small the HBP’s book is (assuming it is indeed the HBP’s book, of course). I had always imagined it as a big heavy tome.

[ Just to make sure that Leggers doesn’t feel the need to reprimand me, please let me clarify that this is merely an observation on my part, not a complaint of the ZOMG THE BOOK IS TOO SMALL IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE MUCH BIGGER THE MOVIE IS RUINED!!! variety. ;) ]

Avatar Image says:

I’m not worried about Emma being too blonde – I’m worried about her being too thin. I think this picture is distorted/stretched a bit which I’m sure doesn’t help, but even in OOTP I thought she was starting to get a bit too waif like (those stick arms in the first scene in Grimmauld place).

And please no more pictures of Harry brooding. Can’t he do any other emotion?

You kids can have Rupert and Dan. This old lady wouldn’t toss David Thewlis out if he happened by one evening.

Avatar Image says:

Oh,Dosen’t Rupert looks so gorgeous and very cool .Also Emma looks very cute.I can’t wait to see Ronniekin and Err-my-nee love-hate relationship in HBP movie.It makes me really mad.

Avatar Image says:

Rupert is so drool-worthy. His legs are just so devine!

Avatar Image says:

Leggers, you’re right : ) , thanks! those comments like “He’s supposed to say that with his mouth full! You ruined Harry Potter!” really annoy me… I think the movies are pretty great!

Ashley said: Just to make sure that Leggers doesn’t feel the need to reprimand me, please let me clarify that this is merely an observation on my part, not a complaint of the ZOMG THE BOOK IS TOO SMALL IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE MUCH BIGGER THE MOVIE IS RUINED!!! variety. ;)

I literally LOL at that!!! hahahaha!!! :D

Avatar Image says:

Ashely, I’m not going to reprimand you! :P I hope I don’t sound mean! D: I actually imagined the book bigger, too. :D

Avatar Image says:

You don’t sound mean at all, Leggers. I was just being silly. :)

Cristipotter, I’m glad I could make you laugh! :D

Confunded, Emma DOES look thin, now I think of it. But I think it’s mostly just her natural build; she’s always been a slender girl.

Avatar Image says:

Oh my gosh, they all look ridiculously hot… especially Rupert!

Avatar Image says:

w00t!..hopefully now..as they’re starting to come to the close of filming, we’ll start seeing lots of promotional pics..PLEASE WB!,,throrw us more bones..!

Avatar Image says:

I want to sit on Rupert’s lap too!!! I still can’t believe how HOT he looks, LUCKY LUCKY JESSIE I ENVY YOU!!!!!!!! I hope we get more news/pics of the trio soon and the other characters because I honestly dying to see Jessie’s hair, I hope looks good.

Avatar Image says:

Ok, here are my thoughs: IMOEmma does look skinier, but maybe is just the picture… I hope so… I really like her (among other things) because she’s not the scary-skinny girl type or at least she wasn’t, I like her hair though… anyway, Rupes’ hair looks great!! I can see his eyes better! and Dan.. oh well, I love averything about him sighs and more sighs and YES he looks great in that light sweater… OMG I Can’t wait!! ACCIO HBP Movie nooow!!! LOL

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, but maybe she’s just skinny like that! I have a friend who have REALLY skinny arms, and no, she’s not unhealthy or has eating disorders… that’s just her build.

MORE MORE MOREEEEE!

Avatar Image says:

Ashley I doubt those little stick arms are the natural build of an almost 18 year old woman in show business. She had more curves at 14 in the GoF prom scene than she does now. Kate Winslett (Titanic, Sense and Sensibility) talked frankly about the fact that she couldn’t get roles any more after these films until she lost weight (she didn’t look heavy to me in any of these films). Women on the screen are under enormous pressure to stay waif-like thin. Not necessarily from the HP people, but she has other roles going on and wants to have a future after DH.

Avatar Image says:

@ Confunded: I’m totally giving away the fact that I have far too much time on my hands tonight, but I googled a couple of pics of Hermione at the Yule Ball to compare with this new pic. These are the two I looked at:

http://static.flickr.com/30/66332019_b2817653a7_m.jpg

http://content6.flixster.com/question/39/20/95/3920952_std.jpg

To me, Emma looks about the same weight in all three pictures. She is a bit bigger in the, ahem, bust area in the Yule Ball pics, but I suspect that’s more a result of strategic padding than anything else. So I don’t think she’s lost much, if any, weight. But that’s just me.

Having said that, I do take your point about girls in the movie business being under enormous pressure to be thin. Hopefully Emma (and Bonnie Wright and Evanna Lynch for that matter, since all three of those girls are very slim) is surrounding herself with people who will look out for her best interests, in addition to using her own good sense.

Finally we receive pictures from the set! Hopefully Warner Brothers gives us high-resolution versions soon!

Well said.

FWIW, I grew up having people ask me if I was bulimic or anorexic. I was tall and thin and had bony arms and a collarbone that stuck out and long legs and a normal, healthy appetite. I’m now 40+ years old, with two children, and, though I am still slim, the days of being called “scrawny” are gone. I still remember, though, being called that—weirdly, sometimes as a compliment, and other times as an insult.

The obsession with weight goes both ways. We don’t need to point out that someone is “fat” OR that someone is “skinny”. People are what they are, and there is beauty in most everything, and all that we can hope is that people are healthy, and happy, and sane.

Avatar Image says:

Yes, I can definitely believe that “stick arms” could be part of an 18-year-old woman’s natural build. I had some serious stick arms (and stick legs, and a stick body) at 18, even though I ate like a horse. It wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I finally began to get some curves (Yay!).

That’s not to say that I don’t think Emma watches her weight. She probably does, just like 99% of the other women on this planet do. And yes, she is probably very aware of the fact that she works in a very weight-conscious industry. But I agree with others that she seems to be naturally thin, and I personally don’t see any reason to think she’s unhealthy. Being thin does not automatically mean a girl has an unhealthy body image.

Avatar Image says:

LOL – these comments are better than the pic! Between “at least it’s not Hagrid’s hut again”, “stretchy Emma”, wanting to creep onto Rupert’s lap or under Dan’s arm, and Dan flipping us all off – Heck, I’m enjoying this movie immensely already!!

Avatar Image says:

Oh my Gravy, I cannot tell you how excited I am!!! I’m going to pee my pants out of excitement!!! I just wish that Ron had a bigger character. It seems that every movie, his character is pushed back more, and Hermione’s is pushed forward. You know what I mean? I mean, not that I have anything agains Emma Watson, or Hermione, I just think they need to have both characters equalized. BUT THAT DOESN”T MEAN I”M ANY LESS EXCITED!!! WAH!

Avatar Image says:

Hey I wanna sit on Rupert’s lap TOO!!!!! But I see I have to take a number!!! @$^#$x%x grrrhhh there should be a trip-to-Jerusalem contest to settle this, Jessie cant join as she already gets to kiss him in the movie!

Avatar Image says:

Wow!!! At last they’ve released a picture ….....But this time I’m not gonna see any clips from the movie except the trailer…....coz last time I felt like I already watched OOTP in bits and pieces…..

Avatar Image says:

I think you are all missing the point. What is Rupert/Ron eating? There’s a bowl of round-thingy’s next to him on the sofa- what could it be dramatic music hehee XD

Emma and Rupert look cute!

Avatar Image says:

^ It could be chocolate, but it looks more like walnuts. But, yeah…I can just imagine Ron going all super love potion obsessed with Romilda right then. lol

Avatar Image says:

They all look great!! Its strange but previously when ever I heard anybody going on about Rupert I just couldnt see it! But now…well I am officially a Rupert fan! He looks fab!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Awesome!!! I was waiting for some news for AGES!!! It looks GREAT!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Oh, and the trio are looking FABULOUS!! This look is WAY better than the OotP look, especially for Dan.

Avatar Image says:

danfan: It does matter, the fact that Dan has brown hair and blue eyes is totaly ridiculous, Harry’s green eyes are his trademark (appart from his scar), Sirius, Lupin and Snape always remember Lliy from Harry’s eyes. And in the chapter ‘The Princes Tale’ where Snape dies, his last wish is to look into Harry’s eyes because he sees Lily through them. Emma should not have bleeched her hair, she wasn’t really thinking about her charater when she did that. In my opinion Dan Radcliffe is really odd looking now, he hasn’t looked anything like Harry Potter since POA. The whole HP movie franchise has been turned into a big joke coz Dan and Emma can’t even act, they should have been replaced after POA in my opinion. And yes i will be the first to admitt that Dan has gotten much better at acting but still, he’s still nothing like Harry Potter.

Avatar Image says:

Did you read the magazine?It says that Hermione DOES send a small flock of canaries at Ron.That means that they’ve kept it in the film, right?Hoorayyyyyy.

Aboutt he picture, it’s really cool.I looooove Rupert’s pose, Hermione has this serious look, Harry’s some sort of trying to persuade her about the Prince book…it seems really really canon.I can’t wait for more pics.It was about time, though.

Avatar Image says:

well, as someone who was accused of being anorexic when I was 18 and yet ate like a horse, and still at 36 can eat whatever I want, yes I can confirm that some people just have skinny builds and stick arms.

Avatar Image says:

omg!!mione looks blonde!and her hair’s shorter than ootp!!and dan-wowwww…he’s soooo sexy…check out tht bedroom pose!!grin*....his potion book hmmm…i guess they filmed this scene-sept/oct?

Avatar Image says:

No, they definitely filmed that scene after December because Emma returned on set in late December, that’s why.

Actually, do you remember what happened with OotP?The pic with Harry pointing the wand to the Dementor was in a magazine and after that Hogs’ head, Umbridge in her office, Trelawney’s sacking, Dumbledore’s Army, Harry in Common Room, Luna in RoR and Dursleys pics were released in three days!I hope that they’ll release a bunch of 4-5 pics this week, too!!!

Avatar Image says:

Don’t you people think Dan is looking really thin lately. In philosophers stone he was such a chubby little lad and now he just looks frail and boney. Do you think he might be anoraxic. It might explain why he’s still so short. LOL!

Avatar Image says:

OMG, Kerrie, every time I read a comment that I totally don’t agree with, it turns out too be yours. Did it ever occur to you that they could actually make lily’s eyes blue as well. Jo Rowling didn’t mind at all. She understood that Dan was the right person for the role, but that it would be terribly uncomfortable for him to wear grean lenses for ten years. Dan has still got amazing eyes, even without them being green. IT IS NO PROBLEM AT ALL! It doesn’t matter for the plot in any way. Would you rather had an other actor play Harry, because Dan’s eyes’aren’t green. My goodness!

Avatar Image says:

Oh my god, I didn’t even read your entire comment. HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT!? since when are you the one to decide if Dan acts like Harry Potter or not! How should he act than! Oh YES, giving the parts to other actors after the fourth film would have been a great idea, if your not a fan of continuity. I know everyone is intitled too their own opinion, but honestly. In Holland they’ve got a saying for what you are doing here. You’re scraping the blood away from under my nales. sheesh!

Avatar Image says:

Yes Kerrie we have all gathered from numerous other posts that you are not a fan of the trio and yes according to you every film after POA sucked. Okay Radcliffe might not be your vision of Harry Potter but for many other people he is (including JKR). Please change the record, your posts are all the same: negative! Oh and the eye thing…it really is no big deal. I agree with Redbeard they could easily change Lily’s eye colour to blue. Jeeez some people will complain about anything.

Avatar Image says:

I agree with Redbeard – Kerrie, you’re all over the place. For the films the colour of Harry’s eyes aren’t particularly important as long as we understand that they are THE SAME as Lily’s.

Emma dyed her hair for her role in ‘Ballet Shoes’, so – no – she didn’t have Hermione in mind then – but you know what? She’s an actress! Not a fictional charcter from a book. I’m sure Dan didn’t have Harry in mind when he was sticking a moustache to his face for ‘My Boy Jack’. The producers, costume designers and make up team must have agreed that her hair colour was acceptable for her to play Hermione.

Voluntarily replacing any key actors is unthinkable.

And anyone who saw ‘Equus’ would refute your suggestion that Dan can’t act.

Avatar Image says:

Hey I know I’m entering into a controversal subjet her but I have to say that i kinda agree with Kerrie about Dan’s acting…sorry. To me personally he is a bit odd looking and some of his scenes in the past I have found a bit cringworthy. However I do like Hermione and Ron. Also, although its not really relevant I’m not bothered about the eye thing and I like Emmas hair! To end on a positive note!

Avatar Image says:

oh that was ‘here’ not ‘her’. Sorry.

Avatar Image says:

For the first time I really like Emma’s hair..Well we know too well by now that she is blond but AT LAST!!! she has bushy hair!!!

Avatar Image says:

Well I’ll just say I LOVE the picture of trhe trio and can’t wait for the film. All the comments about Emma’s hair and weight are tiring, no wonder some girls end up with eating disorders.

Avatar Image says:

This has just wet my appetite, i want more now!

Avatar Image says:

I think Dan, Emma, and Rupert all look fantastic. I really hope that with another year under Yates their acting can really improve.

Anyway, you all know what this means don’t you? Hi-Res pictures are coming soon!

Avatar Image says:

Jeepers Creepers, Kerrie, if you feel so strongly negative about it/them, why are you tracking stories oand pics of the movies?

RE the eyes – the colour was never the important thing about them (Steve van der Ark at least called THAT one right in Canon Conundrums). The point about harry’s eyes was that his personality, his love and compassion (which is the way in which he resembled his mother) shined out through them. And so he reminded others of Lily, and showed his true nature, through his eyes – a window to his soul. This would have been true even if his eyes had been brown or purple (!) and would probably still have held true even (dare I say it?) if his eyes had been a different colour to his mother’s.

Avatar Image says:

rupert looks hot…wow…

Avatar Image says:

can we just calm down? It was originally such a pleasant and positive thread. I was inclined to comment on Kerrie’s negative point too, but decided against. To argue just encourages more negative comments.

As long as Kerrie and all of us remember that everyone has a different imagination when reading the books (that’s what imagination and the written word is all about) so we ALL see a different Harry (and Ron and Hermione for that matter), and that some of us do actually see Harry very like Dan. The filmmakers can’t please everyone, but they do manage to please quite a lot with all the Trio (even if not all at the same time!)

Remember too that they hunted through 10,000 boys to find their ‘Harry’ and ended up going back to their original first choice (Dan’s parents originally turned the part down), because Dan was exactly what they wanted, and Jo thought he was perfect too.

Funnily enough, the reason they chose Dan WAS because of his eyes, not their colour, but the soulful and deep expression he had, which after all, is more important with regard to Harry’s soulful (in more ways than one!) character and traumatised past!

Some of us also like his acting, some of us prefer him to the others, yes even the mighty Grint.

Kerrie’s entitled to her opinions, though she could phrase them better. Just remember she’s a Rupert fan.

Oki…transposed a number: 274 days :( The other WOULD have been better!

again? Dammit! I must either be over tired or over excited! @Laura: that should read ‘haven’t’ not ‘have’ [sorry…] “Even the folks at ‘Nickelodeon’ haven’t read ALL the books!”

Avatar Image says:

kerry, Dan acting was amazing in OOTP and the podcast Trio agree with that ; – )

Avatar Image says:

No, no, it really is 246 days, Confederate Lady! Take heart! :D

Avatar Image says:

Vera, a Harry/Ginny pick would be awesome. I really hope Bonnie stepped up in this movie. She’s been in the shadows for so long, it will be interesting to see how she does. I’d also love to see Jim Broadbent as Slughorn too.

I think we’ll start to see more images soon. More major magizines are releasing their April/May issues soon, which usually contain Summer movie previews, as well as other films to look forward too. Not to mention, I’m almost positive the teaser trailer will be released in early May to coincide with Speed Racer’s release in the theatre. Because of this, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got bombarded with images within the next week or so.

Avatar Image says:

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!! I want to scream but I’m in school so I wont! i absolutely love the picture! they are so cute together! Ron looks so cool on the sofa…I don’t care how Emmas hair looks,she’s beautiful. Oh,and Ron and Hermione are not argued on that picture.I can’t wait for Hermiones little agressive birds : )

GREAT SHOT THEY LOOK VERY NICE ALL OF THEM,,,,,,

WHY IS RUPERT ALWAYS IN THE BACK?! Urgh. It just bothers me. But otherwise, it looks great so far, and I can’t wait! :D

Avatar Image says:

And didnt they say that they tried green contacts for Dan but they were irritating his eyes?

Avatar Image says:

Gotta admit I only watch the movies because of Dan! He’s absolutely gorgeous here- the wardrobe people deserve a reward just for that sweater they’ve put Dan in. He makes the movies for me- the rest are just furniture (except when they interact with Harry! Bring on more promos!

Avatar Image says:

I think this is the best photo of the Trio I’ve seen. They all look gorgeous and a proper Trio of friends, really comfortable. I also keep trying to read Hermione’s newspaper…

Avatar Image says:

SO insanely exciting! They all look fantastic! This photo is getting everyone fired up for HBP whoo hoo :-)

Avatar Image says:

no it does not really matter that the looks of the actors sometimes does not exactly match the characters’ in the book. And although the actors’ coloring could be changed with a hairdye(as with Tom or the Phelps twins) and contact lenses or even digitally tweaked there’s no need to do that really in Emma’s or Dan’s case. They play their roles so well,that’s what really matters, not the eye or the hair color.Whereas a dark haired Draco would just look totally wrong,so Tom has no choice but to wear a wig as in GOF or dye his hair as in SS/COS/POA.

Well, it would have been tough for a 10 yr. old to wear contacts back in SS (I had trouble with them when I was 18), so they kind of had to keep his eyes blue throughout the movies. Also, I’m older (42), but I think Dan Radcliffe does a fantastic job as Harry – he’s just as I imagined him. Perhaps having an older person’s perspective of what it must be like for such a young person to go through what Harry goes through – I think Dan plays it spot on. I like his looks too – maybe the hair should be a bit messier, but he’s pretty close as to how I picture the book character.

Avatar Image says:

I like Emma’s hair! It’s bushier than normally, and it’s actually not that blonde.

They all look great…. can’t wait to have more pictures!

Avatar Image says:

this is GREAT! and it totally sounds like they’re keeping the Oppugno scene! YES!!!

Oh, that was very well said! Its so nice to read the positive comments. I am trying to skip over the (thankfully few and far between) negative ones.

Personally, I think they look wonderful, VERY canon, and I LOVE them in the movies. They are the Trio to me, exactly as I picture them in the books. In fact, as I am rereading DH again right now, I can completely picture every single scene with them in it, I cannot wait for these last movies.

As for Dan… I am old enough to be his mother (as my daughter frequently reminds me, LOL) but still… he is just SO handsome and his amazing blue eyes are part of what gives him such presence and such wonderful expression on screen! All three of them continue to impress me in every interview they give, every public appearance. Somehow they have managed to stay nice, normal, grounded, respectful, professional, kind and overall just lovely human beings. I wish some of our American teen actors would take note.

WB, I would like to add my voice to everyone else’s here: give us more, more, more, and SOON!! Pretty please!!!!

‘Some of us also like his acting, some of us prefer him to the others, yes even the mighty Grint.

Kerrie’s entitled to her opinions, though she could phrase them better. Just remember she’s a Rupert fan.’

I don’t agree with Kerrie’s comment any more than you do, but was that swipe at Rupert fans really necessary? He wasn’t even mentioned in her post, unless I’ve missed something. I love all of the trio (especially Rupert and Dan) and hate how some people always feels the need to make it a competition between the boys.

I’m really excited about the pic – and (hopefully) confirmation of the Oppungo scene! I also think people should chill out about Emmas hair colour. It’s no more important than Dan’s eyes, and as has been stated, the colour really doesn’t matter.

How long until we get a trailer?! If I had more time on my hands I’d be tempted to look back on what the timeline was like for teasers coming in from WB in the months leading up to OoTP. Hmmm….

Avatar Image says:

Yeah Deena, I immediately thought they were keeping the Oppungo scene in too- I hope they’re not just messing with us! ;)

I agree with all the lovely people who are saying what talented, beautiful people the trio have grown into, right in front of our eyes, on screen.

Can’t wait for more!! :D

Avatar Image says:

Alice, no word on when the teaser will be released, but typically the teaser is released in May if the film is released in November. It’s usually in the previews of a family film. That’s why I said in a previous post that I think we’ll see it at the beginning of the Speed Race movie May 5.

Avatar Image says:

Thanks Mollywobble – I can’t wait!

Avatar Image says:

Sorry, Speed Racer opens May 9, not the 5th. My bad.

Avatar Image says:

I’m so happy, this is such a positive comment board!! I love positive :p …I’ve tried to skip over the negative ones, just like you LemonFaerie! I think the trio looks amazing, and there shouldn’t be any competition between Rupert and Daniel, they’re both extremely talented and handsome and I love both of them… Oh, and btw, I’m a Rupert fan, but I still love Daniel…! As for Emma, she’s beautiful and the perfect Hermione, who cares about her hair, she’s still bossy and Hermione-ish as hell…and Daniel’s eyes, I’ve always thought…why can’t Lily’s eyes be blue? JKR is ok with it and we should too. The filmmakers can’t please everyone and I think they do their best. Well, dear WB: WE WANT MORE PICS…NOW!

Mountain violet, your just as opinionated here as you were on imdb, and I don’t care, I still think it’s creepy that someone 40 y.o. is hanging out on a Harry Potter board.

Avatar Image says:

@bugged: How is it creepy? We all know that there are HP fans of all ages. My dad was 60 when he was checking this site everyday in the weeks leading up to the release of DH. It made him feel like a kid again. I think it’s wonderful how the books can do that. :-)

I think it’s time John made a countdown to HBP for us! bats eyelashes

Avatar Image says:

This is exciting, esp. the bit about birds! yayay!

eye colour, it doesn’t bother me, the only thing that annoyed me, was the portrayal of Harry’s dad, James, in OOTP, oh my, nothing personal, but the guy didn’t look like Harry at all, and he looked weird LOL

Avatar Image says:

Why do people make such immature comments based on what the actors playing the characters look like? Especially the trio? I don’t hear people commenting on the fact Michael Gambon plays Dumbledore with an Irish accent, or that Alan Rickman’s skin isn’t as sallow as Snape’s etc. What a load of nonsense to kick up a fuss about stupid details like eye colour and hair colour! If Dan had dies his hair blond or Rupert had shaved his entire barnet off, then, and only then could I understand such commetns, but these petty little squablings are childish and pathetic.I like to think that us Potter fans aren’t quite so immature or pedantic.

I think that Dan, Emma and Rupert (my least favourite admittedly) do a very good job, and if you don’t like them then don’t bother wtching. If you want “your Harry/Ron/Hermione” then stick to the bloody books instead of inciting vicious comments on here.

Avatar Image says:

@bugged – how is it creepy? I read all of the books at once, in about 6 months. I wanted to catch up to my kids and couldn’t stop (and after reading them, I’m making them stop after #3 until they’re older – I know them and it’s just too scary for a boy who gets nightmares about everything). Talking with other parents in my children’s grade school I find that I am far from alone in having been addicted to the books after having started them, they really for adults too, in fact, I think adults can understand alot of the nuances that younger people cannot. As for looking at a Harry Potter forum, frankly, I was feeling a bit of withdrawal when I finished DH, so I came to find out about the movie. So there – and 40’s not that old – you’ll find out you’re not changed that much once you get here (and if you are – shame on you).

Avatar Image says:

Woops, I apologize to Kerrie (again) for my words earlier on. Allthough I ment every word of it, I was a bit harsh. Sorry. It probably won’t be the last time Kerrie, but just so you know.

Avatar Image says:

bugged: I really don’t see how that’s creepy. I think it is pretty great, HP has fans of all ages! I personally know quiet a few older HP fans… and they’re great people. So no, it’s not creepy!

Oh, and btw, there hasn’t been much complains and bad comments about the trio (at least on this board right now), it’s the total opposite, they’ve been getting a lot of compliments from us : ) And talking about Alan Rickman’s skin is JUST LIKE talking about Dan’s eyes and Emma’s hair and Rupert’s lack of freckles… pretty irrelevant. I think all the actors do a great Job (Dumbledore in GoF aside) and yeah, if you don’t like the movies…then…why are you still here? the books are over…

Avatar Image says:

haha, sorry, that made me laugh Redbeard. I think its absolutely fine to be a HP fan in your 40’s, but having a major crush on Dan Radcliffe hmmm… bit wierd (Radcakesfan lol)

Alice, probably not, sorry. I have seen a large number of ‘lively’ comments from the same person before, so I happen to know where her allegiance lies, but it is not clear here I admit. It was not meant as a dig, more a suggestion that if we know allegiances it makes the negative comments more bearable.

Jason Isaac’s Curse of Steptoe drama just started on BBC4.

But, for the record, I’m still much more interested in slipping into that little nook under Dan’s arm. Ahem.

Keeping my fingers crossed that we’ve got some new hi-res shots coming our way soon…

I love Emma’s hair here.

I love Dan’s eyes too. They’re really expressive, and that’s something that having contacts or even digitally altered eyes would take away from him.

Oh, and I love the way Ron is looking at the HBP book in Harry’s hand, as if his only wish in this world is to have a little taste of it’s awesomesauce.

Avatar Image says:

I’ve just finished watching Jason Isaac in ‘Curse of Steptoe’ and, it was seriously powerful stuff! And really sad. It makes you realize how easy it is for actors to become typecast after just one popular role. The acting was superb, it was like watching Harry Corbett and Wilfrid Bramble. I kept on forgetting it was really Jason.

Avatar Image says:

thanks nina for saying the headline. you’ve got good eyesight!

@Natalie: I like Emma’s hair here-though it could be darker-but I just wanted to set something straight. As a person who actually has bushy hair, I can inform you that that is not bushy hair; it is just curlier hair.

As for the Rupert and Dan comments, lol, I’m happy with both :D

Avatar Image says:

yeah, laura (from the first page of comments) i saw that and was like “INCONSISTENT!” lol i notice the tiny things.

and nick magazine was my sister’s magazine, and this was our LAST ONE and she doesn’t want to resubscribe so i’m like send in the hallelujah chorus (;

both the article thingy (even with its mis-info if you go by the books), and the teaser poster thingy are going right up on my wall haha

Avatar Image says:

I totally agree with Sue about Dan’s acting. He portrays almost exactly the Harry I have in my head. I love the whole trio, and i think they have all progressed wonderfully since they began (though they were still awesome as kids given what they had to do) but for me Daniel is still the best because he captures ‘my’ Harry so well. Emma and Rupert are great but they don’t do ‘my’ Ron and Hermione in the same way, and haven’t since CoS.

Having said that: love the picture; they all seem so ‘right’ in the way they are there … yay for canon!! I am so excited already. It feels like way tooooo much time left before we get to see the movie.

(laughs at fromage) Hey fromage, we may be older, doesn’t mean we’re dead or blind! Actually Dan makes my eyeballs pop out- he is just too handsome for his own sake. He’s grown up so well! He looks very, very good on camera – did you check out those Bafta pics? Dan has a ton of older fans, and not just female at that.

Cannot wait to see him on screen.

Avatar Image says:

Rupert!!! Oh MY! GAWD! You so sexy!!! just sitting there on that couch. How does he do it?

Avatar Image says:

Sorry Radcakesfan, didnt mean to be rude. I just dont get it where Dan’s concerned I’m afraid. He makes your ‘eyeballs pop out’! Really? I have to say I am shocked I honestly dont think I have ever spoken to someone in their forties (oh and by the way I dont think that is old. I have a lot of friends who are in there forties and thirties even tho Im in my twenties) who really sees him like that. Is it like a proud mothering thing (by that I mean you think hes grown up well and done a great job) or do you just really see him as, well, fit? On a related note did you go see him in Equus (spelling)?!!! All these comments about Rupert are making me laugh, I never knew he was so popular! But I agree he is looking good in the picture.

Avatar Image says:

“Dude- does anyone know why Emma is ALWAYS by Dan? o_O Posted by Christine If you look at that picture properly you’ll find they are all sitting by each other, and Emma is technically closer to Rupert – Dan is leaning in to show her the book. What are you lot gonna be like when they film DH and Emma and Dan have to spend a lot of time filming together WITHOUT Rupert? Are you gonna start hissy-fitting then too?

The fangirlie comments here are so immature.

rupert possible handsome,cool but he doesnt act.sorry but only make similar mimic since harry potter 1.he doent better oneself (for example driving lessons).daniel possible not handsome,cute but he prove good actor

Avatar Image says:

you must always remember.rupert and daniel very good friends.In that case why do you to argue.this very absurd.

Avatar Image says:

I dont think that anybody is arguing about Rupert and Dan. I think people are reading way too much into some people’s comments. Nobody seems to be being mean to each other, everybody is just looking forward to seeing their favourite actors on the big screen again. Also faith I have to say I do not have a clue what you are talking about. Sorry, but your grammer was seriously confusing me.

Avatar Image says:

@faith: I’d like to point out that just by posting the sentences, “i dont understand what is the matter with grint fans.they are continual to provoke a quarrel,” you yourself are provoking a quarrel.

And by the second half of your comment are you saying that Rupert hasn’t improved in HP but he did in Driving Lessons? (I’m just trying to understand your statement better.) Because his character, currently at least, doesn’t really change in HP. Ron’s a bit static. I think we’ll see greater change in DH, because that’s when his character matures. His character in DL was very different when compared to Ron. It’d be like trying to compare Emma’s portrayal of Hermione vs. Pauline. Pauline allowed for more diversity; Hermione’s always been Hermione—worried and smart.

Avatar Image says:

I agree with Laura, we don’t get to see much diversity in either Rupert or Emma yet, because their screen parts are really quite limited, but that will change in DH and possibly even in HBP. Although I do question Laura’s quote ‘his character matures’. Really? I thought Ron was incredibly immature, like a spoilt brat, in DH. I really really disliked him and felt a bit like Hermione did when he returned (in a, ‘oh you’re back, and what makes you think we care?’ kind of way). But I think we’ll see some great tension in the camping scenes (I hope so anyway) and I’m really looking forward to seeing Hermione’s reaction to Ron returning!

tinkatonks, I get the feeling English is not faith’s first language, so it’s not fair to criticize. I understood what she wrote. I’m always impressed at how well foreigners are able to write in English on here. It would take me hours to do a decent short comment in German or French, the only two languages I speak (maybe I should try it; my posts wouldn’t become so long then :)).

Avatar Image says:

Thanks Anne, Watching a lot of American and English movies and sitcoms does improve your English. I do get confused sometimes with “there”, “their” and “they’re” though.

Avatar Image says:

Anne I wasnt criticising just saying that I didnt understand what she was saying because of her grammer. Which was why I couldnt comment on her opinions. I admit though it didnt occur to me that she may have been foreign, the name faith doesnt particually sound foreign. Anyhow, sorry to turn your words back on you but I dont think it is particually ‘fair to criticise’ me.

Avatar Image says:

Redbeard, not wanting to grovel but your English in particular has always impressed me. It’s better than most English people’s. I never realised you weren’t until you mentioned it a while ago. Yes, ‘there’, they’re’ etc, also ‘it’s’ and ‘its’, and apostrophes in general, confuse many English speakers too!

Avatar Image says:

sorry tinkatonks, it occurred to me after that you may have been just politely asking her to clarify.

Avatar Image says:

Zee- I`m just saying that Emma is always by Dan! PERIOD. Talking to him, walking with him, touching him. She always has the lines, and Rupert just sits there looking like a gol’ dang dingbat waiting for his 9 word line to come up. “We wanted to write mate, really we did. Only….” This is probably how this scene is going to be anyway. Emma talking , Rupert sitting looking serious about the Potoins book , Dan sitting there listening to Hermione saying that the book is dangerous – whatever! And how is this being immature? “The fangirlie comments here are so immature.” Be quiet! If you were a fan of Rupert, then you’d feel this way too.

@bugged: it is not at all “creepy” for older people to be HP fans:(

I am forty, my husband 47, and we and many of our friends in their 40’s and 50’s are serious fans who are regulars at fansites and conferences. I’m amazed at your statement, frankly. What do you make of Jo Rowling (herself forty-something) WRITING the books?!

@Fromage: as you will discover when you get there (and it will happen quicker than you can now imagine), 40 does not equal ancient and senile :) We can still appreciate a handsome man and think him, er “fit”, even if he is younger and even if we are emotionally mature and psychologically healthy enough that we would never consider having a relationship with someone half our age. I( want to emphasize that I am not talking about adults and children here – which is an altogether different and abhorrent thing.)

When one is a teen, one tends to like movie stars who are often a fair bit older, but somewhere along the path of life, this changes. When you are 40, will you be looking at pin-ups of 60 year olds? LOL!

[sigh] I AM a fan of Rupert, I just don’t get my knickers in a twist over where abouts Emma is sitting in relation to Dan and Rupert, or whether or not there’s physical contact. And like I said, in that picture she’s technically sitting by Rupert and Dan is leaning over – big deal. I think it’s being pedantic to point out irrelevant details like that as if you think Emma is doing it just to annoy you personally. If you want to blame someone, blame the director.

In the books, Hermione IS usually the one making most of the philosophical suggestions, helping Harry to analyse things and being a general smart-arse. And Jo ceratinly gave Hermione a lot to do in DH, so maybe you can complain to her too.

Lastly, I can’t “be quiet” because I am just as entitled to an opinion here as you. You don’t have to agree with me, but there it is.

i don’t think anyone thinks that people 40, 50 and older are creepy for liking the potter books. however, imo, a 40 year old drooling over a 17 or 18 year old does have an ewww factor to it. i agree being 40 does not mean your dead or senile, but if it were a 40 year old man drooling over a 17 or 18 year old girl,.... well you know -ewwww.

Avatar Image says:

@anne: Well, not at the beginning. Ron at the beginning was acting childish, but you can tell there’s a change when he returns. About faith, I guess that could be true. I didn’t really consider it because loads of English speakers also have terrible grammar or choose to type in shorthand.
