First Posters for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Released


Feb 05, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

The first posters posters for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
have now been officially released. The first one (courtesy Yahoo) shows a closeup of Harry, with Dumbledore reflected in his glasses. A second one from MSN, seen here in our galleries, shows more of Harry, pointing his wand (and sporting a most curious shirt). The third new poster, here in our galleries as well, features Professor Dumbledore turning to look at something, and is without his hat.

Thanks to Bekki and everyone who emailed!

Avatar ImageEmelye says: What the crap is on his shirt?Avatar Imageluna.quibbler says: ooh cool! 2nd!!!Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: Those are beautiful!!! Can't wait!Avatar Imagewulung says: Looks good! Avatar Imagepadfoot84sb says: oo i like the ones where they are at a diagonal i think its looks cooler than the regular straight on shot :) the one with dumbledore looks great!Avatar Imageravenclaw1028 says: Awesome posters! It looks like an evil version of Scrat from ice age on Harry's shirt. XDAvatar ImageDeliaDee says: I really love the first one but the other two strike me as odd. That first one is stunning. Avatar ImageProfessor Cassandra says: SO COOL!!! Can't wait till they start showing up in the U.S. BTW, only five months left!!!!Avatar Imagehepburn says: I like that the "Harry Potter" title isn't straight but the pictures behind are not that beautiful : too much photoshop!Avatar Imagepadfoot84sb says: hmm now that i look at it..what is that stuff on his shirt? hahaAvatar Imageemmalily says: I love the posters, but the thing on Harry's shirt? What is that?? a Squirrel?Avatar Imageicianom says: Cool posters!Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: This poster is really awesome and it is very amazing. I love seeing Dumbledore reflected in Harry's glasses. I am really looking forward to see how good they did with adapting HBP into a movie, because it look's a lot better than the way they adapted "OOTP" into a movie.Avatar ImageDePillow says: Lovely ^_^Avatar ImageTheProphecy says: YAY new wallpaper! :PAvatar ImageLacrimosa says: fantastic posters! Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else think that the first poster seems like something from PoA? i don't know why, but it just reminds me to PoA.Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: The thing people think is on Harry's shirt is just water/rain/snow/sleet. He's wearing the same shirt he wears in this photo and during the burrow attack. Looks at the collar. Avatar ImageSash1113 says: They really love the blue/teal tones over at WB don't they?Avatar ImageBrianaTheBard says: Sorry kids, but I do not see ANYTHING on Harry's shirt. It just looks like the light reflecting off the folds.Avatar Imagemiss molly says: I am the only one who does not care for them. I was just hoping they would put Draco and Snape on them along with Harry. Avatar ImageeiVega says: Wow, great posters! I love them! I love the intensity and mystery. The layout and composition are great! I really, REALLY like them. I think my favorite posters so far have been one of the trio from POA...but these are right up there! I like the Dumbledore reflection in the glasses....OOooohhh...Avatar ImageeiVega says: Wow, great posters! I love them! I love the intensity and mystery. The layout and composition are great! I really, REALLY like them. I think my favorite posters so far have been one of the trio from POA...but these are right up there! I like the Dumbledore reflection in the glasses....OOooohhh...Avatar Imagesrt2gryffndr says: I like them.Avatar Imagetinagin says: Yeah! Posters!!!!!!Avatar ImageScullythefirst says: I particularly like the first one, with Dumbledore's reflection in Harry's glasses.Avatar Imagemissingmarauder22 says: The new poster is awesome. As for the shirt, well, my mind's too far in the gutter to comment.Avatar Imageshaidydreamer says: These are pretty cool- they make me so excited for the movie to come out, even though I know I'll probably be disappointed with it. My expectations are just always too high :)Avatar Imagemomentofzen says: w00t! God I'm so freaking excited for this movie!Avatar ImageWingardium says: Maybe a house elf on his shirt? No ideaAvatar Imagethereshegoes says: I love the first one :) Fantastic!Avatar ImageSaffron says: Ummm... it's Half Blood Prince. WHERE'S THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE AT?!?! Grrrrrr..... *goes off to gripe*Avatar Imagespiritbound says: Wow Love them !!Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: Ooh! I love the glasses one!! No idea whats on Harry's shirt though..Avatar ImageLeo_Lovegood says: Those are amazing posters but the "HP6" on the first one seems a bit weird. STill amazing though.Avatar Imageahs_12505 says: Really neat posters. I like the first one extremely well!Avatar ImagelittleL says: Gorgeous!Avatar Imageplacebowiz says: SWEETAvatar Imagescarletti1 says: Ohh, i like them. I like how they play with photos. The second one is the most intriguing, the image on top of his shirt is weird... i can't help but think if it's something like what YodatheHobbit mentioned. Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: These posters have a different feel than all the other previous movie posters. They are skewed at an angle and they are in action. It looks like it was a moment in the movie (inferi battle?) like Harry looks at Dumbledore (pic 1) and he sees Dumbledore battling something (pic 2) and then harry joins in the fight (pic 3) I found it interesting that WB is focusing on different aspects of the movie. Like the Father son relationship with Harry and Dumbledore, and the new teacher Slughorn, and Harry being the chosen one. This is a much better advertising method instead of flashing a bazillion pictures like they did with OotP.Avatar Imagegaminette says: When's this movie coming out again?Avatar ImageDances with Dobby says: I love the closeup of Harry one! I don't care much for the DD one but Harry pointing his wand is cool, even though his shirt is distracting. It's cool the way the text is tilded. it kinda gives it a sense of action. But why do they always use blue? Ok, it does give it a misterious and dark look, but a change of color would be nice.Avatar Imagehericus says: anything new about harry potter makes me think of how long there is to wait =[ But lovin' these posters, my fave is the last one with dumbledore reflecting in harrys glases. Avatar ImageTheCrogePodge says: I'm kind of disappointed. I guess since we're WAY overdue for a poster (according to the OotP timeline, we should have gotten one in November) I was hoping it would look more interesting. These posters ARE interesting, make no mistake, but I would have thought that, for the first poster, they would make it seem a bit more...mysterious. Like a silouette of Harry or Voldemort reaching out; these seem more like promotional banners you see hanging in a movie theatre. Ah, well. At least it means I'll be able to buy three t-shirts from Hot Topic any day now.Avatar ImageAmarie says: Oooh, I love them; they're so dark. It looks like Harry has something weird on his shirt though: it looks like its reflecting something, which is impossible, obviously.Avatar Imagewhenfishfly says: Wow, that's a close up of Harry's face if ever I saw one. Hopefully the movie will be as exciting as they are trying to make the posters.Avatar Imageivyclarice says: OK, I can't stop staring. All I can see is a praying mantis crawling out of the Holy Grail, on Harry's shirt...Avatar Imageomgitslouise says: Yay! Posters! Harry's shirt is weird, but I like the first one =]Avatar Imageeleanoreleanro says: hmm I like the ones with the tilt. it makes the image more dynamic and you can tell that the story in this movie is getting closer and closer to the big climax! As for the thing on his shirt... could it be a house crest like that shirt Hermione was wearing in that production image?Avatar ImageR-for-H says: My favourite is the close up of Harry with Dumbledore reflected in his glasses! THey are all sooooooo cool though!!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I have to admit that Warner Brothers does employ excellent people in the graphic design parts of their advertising and marketing departments! These are exceptionally designed posters, filled with suspense and engaging for the viewer.Avatar Imagelittlefurlo3 says: i like the poster, the diagonal writing is cool, but i have to agree: what IS on harry's shirt?Avatar ImageMuggleQueen says: Yay I can't believe we've finally got some posters!! I'm loving the colour scheme, but I think it looks really weird having DD reflected in Harry's glasses... it's a pretty cool idea though. Anyway they're still awesome!Avatar ImageFonty says: Interesting posters and no "Everything is going to change" this time ... :)Avatar ImageLP Dantas says: On the first poster, that's got to be the most bizarre number 6 ever. The third poster is a bit funny, can't explain why... The second one is the best. So awesome!Avatar Imageeleanoreleanro says: well, upon closer inspection, it does kind of look like a pocket on the right side of his shirt. and buttons down the middle, I think it's just the light reflection off of it strangely. Avatar Imageanne1 says: These are wicked posters! :DAvatar ImageChantyBabez says: What is it on his t-shirt? :D xxxAvatar ImageSTARZOE says: its looks great! i so cant wait!!!!! bring on july!!!!!!! :)Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: awesome!! I love the posters!!! The angles are different and nice. I love the reflection in Harry's glasses and the coloring. Just cool!Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: oh granted I would rather them put the title than HP6 but hey, the close up was nice.Avatar ImageEdna_Turnblad says: That Dumbledore poster just rocks socks all over the place! OMG! I love it!!! The other ones...not so much. What is on his shirt? It looks really odd. Avatar ImageRose-Mclane says: I like the first one the most. Harry looks hot and Dumbledor looks like Santa. I think the reflection on Harry's chest is Jack Frost. It looks like Harry and Dumbledor have packed their bags and moved to the North Pole. I suppose we have to wait till much latter to see any with the Trio/ other two in it. Maybe the movie should be called Harry Potter and Harry & Dumbledore go to The North Pole or... just call it Harry Potter and Harry & Dumbledore.Avatar ImageTheCupcake says: Ohh exciting! Avatar Imagenetsrikb says: I love these posters!!! they do somewhat resemble the stuff from POA, but I like them a lot. very cool but wth is on harry's shirt??? I want to know!!!Avatar ImageSynne-M says: Love them! They look a lot more "grown-up" and modern than the previous ones. I can't wait for the movie. Looks like it's going to be the best one yet!Avatar ImageLP Dantas says: Oh, and also: FINALLY!Avatar ImagePuja723 says: Pretty posters. It's about time we got these! Looks like the cave scenes are going to be awsome :D Avatar ImageSophie Treklemmer says: Yay! I'm so happy that we finally got the posters! They look so awesome! <3Avatar Imagethursrain says: Omg, these are completly epic. I love the sideways letters, and that awesome 6 on the third poster. This makes me so excited for the movie.Avatar ImagePhoenixLindsey47 says: It's about time we got some posters! I love love love the Dumbledore reflected in Harry's glasses!! Only 161 more days.Avatar ImageDolemite says: Can't wait for the movie, but can't say I like those poster that much. Seem a bit '300ish' to me.Avatar Imagecdewson says: These Posters are awesomeAvatar ImageNatalie says: ΟΗ ΜΥ GOD!!!! These are waaay better than what I expected.... My favourites are the ones of POA but I think these will surpass them... Is it the Potions Book that in his shirt?????? LOVE THEM!!!Avatar ImageMatea says: It looks...different...and that blue again.OOTP was all in blue tone..its a bit boring. but interesting posters.Avatar ImageShalott says: Yay! Awesome!Avatar ImageNickB says: I really like the Harry with Dumbledore reflected in the glasses. All of them are cool though. Avatar ImageTyman28962 says: Very nice! Much better than the past movies..Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: I BET IT'S A SQUIRRELAvatar ImageLemonFaerie says: YAY!!!! Signs of HBP life! It IS coming, it IS!!! Very cool posters. I want. :)Avatar ImageGryffindor51 says: Love the posters! Question: What about Dumbledore's "blackened hand"?Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: FINALLY! POSTERS! I can't wait for HBP even though I'm probably hoping for too much. Anywho, I like the harry one, the dumbledore, but what the hell? I don't get that t-shirt.Doesn't seem very HP to me...weird.Avatar ImageHPKnowItALLFan13 says: YAAAAAY!!! I've been waiting forever for these posters! As soon as I saw this news story, I called my theatre to see if we got it yet, but my manager said no. :( But I will be obtaining them as soon as possible! They look AMAZING!Avatar Imagecztery says: cool coloursAvatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Wow!!!these are great,like best posters ever!!:) (though i can't fiugure out what's on Harry's shirt)Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Wow!!!these are great,like best posters ever!!:) (though i can't fiugure out what's on Harry's shirt)Avatar ImageThe Silver Doe music says: I'm actually not crazy about the posters. I like the first one, but I don't like the diagonal of the other two. I do like the DD picture in the third one, but the second picture hardly even looks like Harry/Daniel Radcliffe. Plus I want to see Ron and Hermione :)Avatar ImageThe Silver Doe music says: And I don't get the shirt thing everyone's talking about. It looks like a normal shirt to me...Avatar Imageathena024 says: Ohhh, so exciting! It's getting closer and closer every day!Avatar Imageathena024 says: Sorry for the double post, but question: Why are both of Dumbledore's hands normal-looking? Isn't one supposed to be, like, dead?Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: Hmm... what is that on his shirt? I mean, it can't be a reflection like on his glasses, lol! but what IS it? Anyways, awesome that we are getting new promotional stuff! I hope more comes soon, but that it isn't full scenes like with the last movies. I can't stop myself from watching them, but afterwards it's a horrible guilty feeling, being spoiled like that! :-PAvatar Imagepurplekim says: What's happened to Dumbledore's blackened hand? Don't tell me WB have done away with the ring...Avatar Imagelunalovegoodlove says: I agree with most, the side writing looks really good. The posters took a while to come out, maybe wb forgot about it and did a last minute photoshop with Harry's shirt!Avatar Imagepurplekim says: The shirt just looks normal to me. There's nothing even remotely squirrilesh in the picture that i have got.Avatar Imagetheseventhl says: What IS that on Harry's shirt? Looks like someone's face... Love Dumbly's poster, and the fact that they made his hand affected like it was in the book. Yay, details! :DAvatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: These are awesome. My favorite is the one of Dumbledore. I can't tell what is on Harry's shirt.Avatar ImageHarrys Horntail says: I really like them ... I think. but I preferred the first ones we got for OotP. There was just something about that Voldy shot. My favourite is still the Sirius one from PoA but these seem very interesting too :)Avatar Imagefoxyredalpha says: Looks good! I can't wait for the movie! I can't belive were on book 6 already though...Avatar Imageclashcityrocker13 says: Woot Woot!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: I almost started crying when I saw this in school!! :D I LOVE the one where Dumbledore is reflected in Harry's glasses. And the "HP6" = amazing.Avatar ImageAhhheavytorch says: I like how both Harry and Dumbledore are looking over their shoulders. It's like when you are walking in the dark and you hear a noise behind you. Very spooky! Can't wait!Avatar ImageHPKnowItALLFan13 says: I might be crazy...but the thing with Harry's shirt...does anyone else see Dumbledore? Like if you tilt your head to the kind of looks like him. If it Dumbledore...that's weird. I don't know why something would be reflected on a shirt?Avatar ImagePotterswan says: The first one is awesome! Oh man, I cannot wait until July.Avatar Imagemiss molly says: Why has WB not put these on the website yet? Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: I really like Dumbledore reflected in Harry's glasses. It reminds me of eyes being the windows of the soul.Avatar ImageethanHP says: The first one is very cool, Harry's expression, the colors, the glasses, the background... I like the second too, but I'm not sure what's on his shirt and that makes it a little weird. The one with Dumbledore, he isn't wearing his glasses and I think that's what makes it look a little strange too, because of his eyes. It would be really cool to have a poster with Harry and Dumbledore in it together, and one with Harry and Snape looking at each other.Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: Awesome posters,especially the third one. It really captures the sadness in Harry and the ambiguity of his quest.Avatar Imagehp29 says: the first one is amazing! the others are good too, but i really like the first one!!Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: Love them! It's about time we got some posters!Avatar Imageizziewitch says: Love the 6. I guess they can't give us Snape, for those who don't read the books, but still would love to see a group shot at least, with the trio and D and Snape; that wouldn't give too much away.Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: the one of the close up of harry is wicked even though his lips are dry in it..Avatar ImageethanHP says: I'm thinking now there is nothing in his shirt, maybe it's just the light and some creases.Avatar Imageherminjet says: looks good!Avatar ImageMuggleborn1184 says: they forgot to make dumbledore's hand look deadAvatar ImageDarkPsychosis says: awesome posters.Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: I like them...they set the tone well. I just don't like the "HP6" bit on the 1st one, it looks so out of place.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: ok so if twilight ppl can say OME, i will say OMH haha...the posters are really cool! i like the glasses reflection one! yiiip definately wallpaper material!Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: And I suppose they didn't make Dumbledore's hand look dead because they want to give the non-readers a shock?Avatar ImageRosalie says: Those are some very cool posters! My fav is the one with Dumbledore in Harry's glasses.Avatar Imagecoweatyou says: Dumbledore in Harry's glasses is totally awsome. I think it is my fav poster of all time.Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: His shirt just looks wrinkled to me... *shrugs*Avatar ImageGinevra86 says: I only like the one with DD reflected in Harry's glasses. The other ones are a bit odd... hmm...Avatar Imagelnh92 says: those posters look cool. The one with Dumbledore in harrys glasses is cool.Avatar Imagemouse68 says: For those complaining about the lack of Snape, you just have to accept that they are not going to be giving him too much publicity at this stage. There are many people (in fact probably the majority of the filmgoing audience, even though rabid book fans like us don't like to accept that) who only watch the movies and they aren't about to give away the big secret in pre-publicity. Why do you think Alan Rickman never talks about Snape very much in interviews? He doesn't want to spoil it either. As for including Snape in a group shot, it would in fact give something away to non-book readers if Snape suddenly started turning up on posters when he hasn't before (unless he was on the poster for the original film which I can't remember right now except that it had a lot of characters on it). Wait until they are publicising DH, you will get your Snape publicity then.Avatar ImageSlytherin4Life says: Its kind of weird for me to be seeing the logo at an angle, but that is just my opinion. I really like these posters and hope to get my hands on one of them. And of course this makes me veryy excited for the movie!Avatar ImageKristen95 says: they are all amazing! the first one is my favorite! :DAvatar Imagemollywobble says: As much as I would like to see a unique poster for each film, I understand why the go with the classic Harry image. What says "Hey there's a new Harry Potter movie coming" more than a picture of Harry's iconic glasses or him holding a wand. It does get a bit redundant though, which is why I liked the Voldemort one last year. Still, these are well done. I look forward to the high-res version so we can get a better look at that shirt.Avatar ImageThio says: Well... I actually liked the second and third poster the best. The first one has a nice pic of Harry, but I didn't fancy the HP6. They wont be able to carry that to the 7th movie, unless they make HP7a and HP7b... I don't know. It felt like it didn't belong. And the glasses reflection... well... I've seen enough of those. If the poster was only Harry it would be much better for me... because the picture really is awesome. The other two have a more "classic" thing about it. I liked the cut on the title and the pictures angles... it's almost as if the posters says the plot is getting bigger and things are not nice and down to earth as they once were... as if things are running out of control (yeah... I'm out of my mind today). As for the reflection on Harry's shirt (reflective shirt?!)... it looks like the Inferi... or maybe it's representing death crawling it's way towards Harry's life... well, as I said, I'm out of it today. Can't wait to see more!! ^^Avatar ImageThio says: Well... I actually liked the second and third poster the best. The first one has a nice pic of Harry, but I didn't fancy the HP6. They wont be able to carry that to the 7th movie, unless they make HP7a and HP7b... I don't know. It felt like it didn't belong. And the glasses reflection... well... I've seen enough of those.

Can't wait to see more!! ^^Avatar Imageselene21 says: awsome, it was about timeAvatar ImageCaramelsilver says: I'm not all that impressed. I little boring I think... And for some reason I'm really disappointed that the colour scheeme isn't green. HBP has always been green to me. The Dumbledore one was cool though!Avatar ImageThio says: Oops! Sorry about the double post! Maybe you got a point there Caramelsilver... this "gray aura" is getting a little old. It could use another color scheme.Avatar Imageravenclanna says: is everyone else thinking the same as me?? FINALYYYYYYY i thought the first one looked really good minus the HP6 part... that makes it look like one of the fake ones... DUMBLEDORES HAND!!! its not burnt!! or at least it doesnt really look like it!! are they leaving that out or did they just not fix it for the poster?? Avatar Imagesaoirse42 says: The posters are awesome, but when I first glanced at the second one, I thought Sirius was on his shirt, then a castle, but I decided Peter Pettigrew in animagus form. But now I agree with ravenclaw 1028 that it looks like Scrat from Ice Age....Avatar ImageMagicDucks says: Awesome! I absolutely love the first one! :)Avatar ImageMirdan says: Wow! They're all stunning. I think I like the first one best though. I like the second until everyone started talking about his shirt, and now that's all I see...Avatar Imagekellydofc says: I was so hoping that they would put Snape on one of the HBP posters but I suppose that they think it will ruin it for the people who only watch the movies. Still I can help but feel a little disappointed since Alan hasn't made it onto a single HP poster yet.Avatar ImageAraminta1987 says: I like the one with Dumbledore reflected in Harry's glasses... the one of hatless Dumbledore just makes me immediately think he is going to die. I wonder if that's just because I know it's going to happen - I'd ask someone what they think of it, but I don't think there's a single person in theworld who doesn't know what happens at the end of this movie!!!!Avatar Imagekatem4 says: I think they all look great! Though, I agree that the HP6 makes it look weird. The slanted thing is different, too, but goes well with the pictures. Can't wait for the movie!Avatar Imagepennynickles says: These are great! I'm so excited!Avatar ImageMiss Freewind says: I really love the posters. I actually think that they are one of the better ones. However, I have to agree with others about his shirt. I can't tell if it just what it is. I don't know if it is caused by some outside influence or if there is really something there. Also to all the ones that are complaining about these posters, I want to remind you that these will not be the only posters for HBP.Avatar ImageRavenclawed says: It's nice to see a bit of a change from the usual trio-looking-moody posters of the past. But do the photographers have any light in their studio other than blue ???Avatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: Miss Molly, I too wanted a Snape/Draco poster!! That would have been VERY awsome!!! I like these posters but they should have one more with Snape and Draco!!! My favorite one is the one with Dumbledore in Harry's glasses. Cant wait to see them at a movie theature!!!Avatar Imagejuliadiggory92 says: What thing on his shirt? I can't see anything!!!! :(Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I want one!!!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I want one showing the lighter moments in HBP. Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: holygeezz this got me so happyyy ahaha hooray!Avatar ImageHROAR Mudblood Proud says: I love that poster. If they'd been doing Harry's eyes green all along, though, they could have done the poster green like the book and it would be perfect!Avatar ImageBell Dema says: Wow, the second one is huge!!Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: I like the angles of these posters, they have a very artisitc feel to them. They are a pit PoAish, probably because of the color scheme. I'm still trying to figure out what he is wearing!Avatar Imagedsm25 says: Where's the blackened hand???Avatar Imagemaddypuff says: These are all pretty good. But i'm a bit disappointed about the lack of snape >:[Avatar ImageErinM says: The posters are great. A little something to tease us about the one hundred sixty days left until we finally get a chance to see this movie! Avatar ImageErinM says: I can't figure out the shirt either. A squirrel? A nargle? Just a shirt? This movie delay has been cruel! >:(Avatar Imagescholar17 says: Anyone else notice that both of Dumbledore's hands are just fine? Also, what about the other characters? I know HBP is about Dumbledore and Harry and their journey together, but it is also about the development of relationships (romantic and otherwise) among the others!Avatar Imagescholar17 says: And where are Dumbledore's glasses? Avatar Imagequeequeg says: I like the one with the glasses, but I hate the angle of the shots. Where is DD's blackend hand? They already took out his funeral, the least they could do blackened hand properly.Avatar Image[email protected] says: Sweeeeet!!! i noticed that dumbledore's hands look normalAvatar ImageGinnyClone30250 says: Yay for new posters, boo for the way they look.Avatar Imagethewandofdestiny says: i really like the close up one of Harry. Did anyone notice that Dumbledore's hand isn't dead in the last one?Avatar Imagedavid1228 says: OMG!!!!!! It's about time. These are AMAZING pictures!!!! And there's nothing on his shirt but a pocket and some buttons. It's just the way it's wrinkled like that which makes it look funny.Avatar Imagedavid1228 says: They probably didn't show the hand like that so they wouldn't give anything away to the people who don't read the books.Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: Oh I really love the poster with Dumbledore reflected in Harry's glasses. What a subtle but visually appealing hint of his fate in the movie.Avatar ImageJaJaRavenclaw says: Maybe I'm blind--What's curious about the shirt?Avatar ImageTarsieS says: I like these - especially the one with Harry's glasses reflecting DD. I especially like the HP6 title for some bizarre reason. Maybe they'll come out with some more that have Draco and Snape on them - like last time, the good guys and the bad guys.Avatar Imageavrenim says: the posters are awesome, but i don't like how 2nd and 3rd posters say "coming soon". since when is 5 months considered "soon"?! Avatar Imagegrimnakjarman says: Looks awesome Avatar ImagevivaHP says: um. there is nothing on his shirt. its just the way the light is hitting it. Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: Those look great!Avatar Imagebutter_mellow says: I love how sharp these look! I especially like the Dumbledore in Harry's glasses.Avatar Imagechocofrog says: oh i really like these!! so excited for the movie!Avatar ImageGreat Uncle Algie says: I like the first one the best.... Avatar ImageAlli says: finally we get some promotional photos! i like how the writing is at an angle...Avatar ImageLunaGinervaBlack says: I wanted to read a lot of the comments before I commented; I was curious to see what people's opinions were. I was also busy today. I'm glad we finally got them! 1.I like that the first one says "Once again, I must ask too much of you, Harry" as opposed to "coming soon." I also like that it says "HP6" because that's how I referred to the books/movies before I found that people in the fandom usually abbreviated them as "SS" or "DH" or what have you. 2. I think Dumbledore looks like Santa Claus. The tilt does not impress me--artistically anyway. I guess not many movie posters look that way, so that's cool. 3. At first I thought it was a small creature also on the shirt. But I really think that it is just a combination of light and shadow on a flannel shirt. POOR EDITING, WB. Unless they wanted to drive us fans crazy. 4. My favorite movie poster EVER is "Have you seen this wizard?"Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: these are flippin sweet man!!!! how can anybody look at these posters and not wanna go see the movie???? when it finally comes out that is :P im thinking the 8th harry potter book will be Harry Potter and the attack of the mutant shirt. i want one of those :DAvatar Imageprettypotter says: I love high res lol Harry's(Dan's) face is now my background for my computer. Avatar Imagemaddypuff says: Haha. I agree, Dumbledore looks almost jolly ;DAvatar Imagemolasses says: The close up on his glasses is my favorite. Love that there are actual lenses in the frames this time ;)Avatar ImagePCC_Wizard says: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are perfect!!!! I am now having a heart attack, this is freakingly awesome!!! I love the shading and the focus they have on Dumbledore and Harry. To some people who satet they look like PoA posters, I believe you are right, mostly because of the light and the angles used (also the huge zoom on Harry's face). YEY!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Looks really, really awesome!!!Avatar Imageugurbocegi says: I cannot see them. The pages give error. :-(Avatar Imagegrey_nightshirt says: I think these are quite boring. The fan made ones including the cave were much better :-(Avatar Imagevineethtc says: You are losing browsers, Leaky. The error page has been coming for a long time now. Avatar Imagepensive says: I love the poster of a very close up Harry with Dumbledore reflected on his glasses. mysterious and intense, and suggests about the close relationship between the chosen one and the mentor. kinda like King arthur and Merlin. And can I say, sexy lips, Dan...? lolAvatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: The posters are just AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageKay says: Its about time we got some posters. We have so many trailers already!Avatar ImageSally_Zaar says: Wow, they're dark and broody. I love it!! Is that 'The Ring' on DD's finger? That hand didn't look black tho ...Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: Ohhh, at last!Avatar Imagemiriam the wounded says: People stop trying to decipher what is on the shirt! Dan/Harry has pockets on the front of the shirt and the water is reflective - you can see Harry's hand and in the reflection. I really like all of the posters. Just gorgeous and I love the blue tones. Avatar ImageThatJordanEdwards says: These are really nice posters. I'm not too fond of using HP6 but I suppose at this point that audience knows what's what. The angular composition is an excellent tool for adding interest and, in a way, energy to these posters. On a side note, it's looks like Dan needs some chap stick. Avatar Imagekiwimci says: lovin the avant garde diagonal title, really good poster, though I don't get what is curious about the shirt?Avatar Imagesparkplug3690 says: YAY!!!!Avatar Imagebookfan says: These posters are great, especially the one with Dumbledore's reflection in Harry's glasses.Avatar ImageGrindelwall-e says: I'm so scared of this movie! Its my favorite book and the movies are so different from the books; more and more each time. Posters only highlight the lack of wizard robes for harry and his unharryish haircut. It won't stop these from being my new Wallpaper though! Avatar ImageHermione_Granger1987 says: The posters are awesome!! There a bit different from the posters we’ve seen so far from the previous movies aren’t they? Avatar ImageKarrelien says: Hmm, I think the one with DD is a pre-horcrux-impact-picture.. His hand is still intact.. I had hoped to see the new shape.Avatar ImageIngvia says: I like that the posters show the dark side of HBP, not the comedy there've been so much fuss about. Still, I'm not overexcited about the images.. Why doesn't Dumbledore wear his glasses? Avatar Imageboushh says: I love the posters! The one with the reflection in the glasses is neat, though the HP6 is an odd choice...Avatar Imagekamidee says: I dont see anything curious about Harry's shirt. Can someone explain this to me?Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: The HP6 looks so daft, it makes the poster look fanmade. None of the other posters had numbers on, and how are they going to put numbers on the DH posters? I think the only reason that Dumbledore's hand isn't blackened is because they want to give non-readers a shock. Remember Harry's reaction when he sees it> They want the audience (at least, those who aren't expecting it) to have the same reaction. That wouldn't happen if we'd been staring at posters with a blackened hand for 5 months.Avatar Imagecat_eli_mon says: freakin' cool yo!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: Very cool! And, I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm not seeing anything strange about the shirt. Just goes to show how poor my observation skills are, though.Avatar Imagea1000wtp says: for some reason I thought of Black when I saw it!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Okay posters. The glasses one is pretty cool. I really think they need to have one with Snape (the title character after all) and Draco too, though. They are just as important to the plot. Although you could argue that having one with Snape on it would ruin the mystery of who the HBP is for those who haven't read the books. Still, it's a bit odd to exclude him, eh? Avatar ImageRoman says: Lookin pretty cool! I'll have to get my hands on at least one of those for my collection.Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: The first one is definitely my favorite. That's one of the coolest shots, even if Dumbledore was photoshopped in there ;) But I don't really like how the "6" of "HP6" is just kind of squished down in the corner. The second one is strange... I really want to know what's on Harry's shirt, haha. And the third one I just don't like. :)Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: i hope they put out a harry ginny one...Avatar Imagejessh324 says: I think he has a normal t-shirt with a scarf on topAvatar ImageSarabi says: I'm seriously hoping Snape will be on the theatrical poster...can't have HBP without him!Avatar Imagearyell says: CoolAvatar Imageravenclawguy1972 says: cool posters they seem to do justtice to the movie Avatar ImagePrenz13 says: Wow!!!! Looking good!!!Avatar ImageKaitlynE says: OK - who cares about the shirt -- has no one else noticed, where's his scar?!Avatar Imagedobbyisfree_05 says: ohhh exciting! thanks so much for posting.. is it just me or in the poster with Harry (not the close up) does the little squares reflected on Harry's glasses look like Voldemort? I'm prob just insane but thats what it looks like to me! Avatar ImageLienatik says: I like them, but I really wish there would be some nice, shiny Snape related HBP posters. I thought they would pimp him out big time with this movie, but I'm a bit disappointed :(Avatar Imagebluestarshells says: I'm not so sure it's something on his shirt, but rather something INSIDE his shirt. But, what.... Avatar Imageteam ron says: ok first of all what the heck is on his shirt. second of all what is dumbledore looking at. third of all i like the order of the pheonix way better, but these are ok!!Avatar Imagecleverssynonym says: wait, what's on his shirt? i just looks like a light reflection..Avatar Imagecamsammom1 says: Coming Soon! Hurry up July. Cool posters!Avatar Imageravenclaw29 says: Merlin's pants!!!! I got an excitement shiver from reading that quote. is it wrong to want to kill a unicorn to get this movie out TODAY???!?!?!?!?!Avatar Imageravenclaw29 says: i thought the fake poster with the patronus was kind of cooler than these. but i will certainly take anything HBPAvatar Imagejenvomitvos says: i think that's just the texture of his shirt. he's wearing a button up. textured shirt and some of it is in shadows.Avatar Imagehermione_1991 says: super cool posters! cant wait for the movie!Avatar Imagedarkveela says: Finally!!!!!!!Avatar Imagedarkveela says: Also, Dumbledore has lost his glasses as always :|Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: These posters are really edgy -- perhaps too edgy for me.
