New “Half-Blood Prince” Preview Special Running at Regal Theaters


Feb 07, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

At select Regal theaters, a preview special is airing, featuring new footage, clips and interviews with the cast of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. According to the report, new are interviews with the Trio of Dan Radcliffe (Harry), Emma Watson (Hermione), and Rupert Grint (Ron) as well as Potter producer David Heyman. Also, some of the footage airing is described as follows:

Bellatrix on top of a table in the Great Hall throwing a spell
(extended), Hermione throwing birds at Ron, Hermione’s jealousy of Ron
and Lavender (“Excuse me, I have to go vomit”), Dumbledore levitating
items in the Dursley house, a couple of new lines from Dumbledore, new
shots of the Inferi, and the “She Thinks You’re the Chosen One” scene

Please note: these features, such as the one on HBP, often air well before the trailers begin before the scheduled movie start time. If anyone happens to attend a movie and sees this, please send in your detailed report.

Thanks to Matt and Andrew from MuggleNet!

Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: I wish I could see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagewizardlibrarian says: Wow this sounds great I hope it comes to a theater near me or to youtubeAvatar ImageAutumnWizard says: I hope those scenes will make their way online and in high def.Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Looking forward to seeing Dumbledore's visit to the Dursleys! Hope this finds its way to YouTube soon!Avatar Imagehpikjdjg says: This sounds great. But it would be nice to hear that some H/G was included in that first look!!Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: There should be a way of finding out when this is aired. We can't exactly all go to movie after movie in hopes of being there when it's shown.Avatar Imagescarletti1 says: gahhhh... i wish i could go see it! *le sigh*Avatar Imagerealspace says: Wait! Does this mean that we ARE going to get Dursleys in HBP?! That would be great! The only thing that would make it better would be Kreatcher and the "Won't, won't, won't " on the Dursley's floor scene. I love that bit.Avatar Imagespiritbound says: So wish i could see it. Can't wait to see the bird scene. Bellatrix bit sounds awesome too. Avatar Imagevicky granger says: I want to see it !! I hope it gets to YouTube soon, because there aren't any previews in French theaters yet.Avatar ImageBookworm Jen says: Usually I bring a book with me to read while I'm waiting for a movie to start (I go to a lot of movies by myself.), but now I'll be on the lookout for this feature. :) DeliaDee, if this is what I'm picturing, it's part of the Regal "First Look", which - as Sue stated - airs well before the previews begin. It's a way to pass the time while you're waiting for the movie to start. Most of the time (at least in the theaters around here), they're the same no matter which movie you're going to at the theater. They play the same features for a couple of weeks before changing them.Avatar ImageMuggleQueen says: Omg I really want to see it too! Ah the birds... such a great scene, really looking forward to seeing it!!Avatar Imagerinanorreh says: Yay! I was hoping we'd see Hermione's birds! :)Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: Want to see that one! I love Hermions comment XDAvatar Imagetwinmom says: I got to see the extended trailer when I took my children to Pink Panther 2. What a treat!! Some extra scenes inlcuded Ron playing Quidditch, different views of filming where Dan/Harry filming close-ups, Dumbledore and Harry in the Cave and instead of Dumbledore fixing things in the Dursleys it actually reminded me of the scene when DD and Harry went to convince Slughorn to come to Hogwarts. I may be mistaken on some parts as I was carrying drinks and popcorn and found myslef stunned to see this! It was really cool and it makes waiting for July that much harder... that an my 40th birthday is a week before HBP. At least I will be getting to see the movie soon after...something to look forward too!Avatar ImageKarrelien says: Whoow! Another reason to go to theater! Sounds fun and I really hope the scene with the Dursleys is in!Avatar ImageCourtneyPotter says: Yes! the theater by my house is a Regal theatre! im going to go see a moive now! hehe squeeeeeee! :)Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: That would be so cool to see, I hope that it find a way online so that I could see it!Avatar ImageMcTricks says: Oh I hope it comes online soon!Avatar ImageMatea says: I can't wait any longer!!! Hermiones birds!!!!??? Thank you thank you! Avatar ImagewrockfangirlSQUEE says: omg that would be soo coolAvatar ImageR-for-H says: Can't wait too see this!! Hermione!! LOL!!!Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds great!!! I'd like to see Pink Panther 2 just for that. Twilight didn't have HBP trailer on though.Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Wow! I really really wanna see this!!!!!Avatar Imageselene21 says: birds!!!!!! I wan´t to see it, please someone post it on youtube soonAvatar Imagetwinmom says: The trailer for HBP far outdid the Pink Panther 2 but it was well worth seeing the trailer!Avatar Imagetwinmom says: The trailer for HBP far outdid the Pink Panther 2 but it was well worth seeing the trailer! The bird scene with Hermione was great!Avatar Imagetwinmom says: The trailer for HBP far outdid the Pink Panther 2 but it was well worth seeing the trailer! The bird scene with Hermione was great!Avatar ImageLP Dantas says: Thirded! Please, youtube it! I wanna see those scenes! Not looking forward to the interviews, however. "This movie is the by far the darkest, it's so dark... did I mention it's a really dark movie?"Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: Dumbledore levitating stuff at the Dursleys'? YES! I love that scene.Avatar Imagesavingharry says: That's awesome. I'm not 100%, but I'm fairly sure you should be able to see this wherever there is the National CineMedia "First Look". It's usually the same content. You just need to arrive at the theater 20 mins early. No big deal, really, because you get a good seat! There is a theater locater on the website. I'll email the leaky people so they have it, but in case they decide not to put it in the article itself, here it is: Avatar ImageRinny says: man- i love 'the 20'/first look at regal! pity that the closest regal to me at school is like... an hour away. darn!Avatar Imageemmalily says: Squee! I hope I will get to see it! :-PAvatar Imagehericus says: looks like i'll be checking youtube, and leaky quite regulary till i get to see thisAvatar ImageraychelMAY says: Gahhh I want to see it so bad. Somebody should put this online.Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: Dumbledore would be levitating items at Slughorn's home... not the Dursley'sAvatar Imagethereshegoes says: It would be fantastic to see that although I would be happy enough to just see the trailers and official clips/pictures. I want to see the movie as a whole :)Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: So when exactly in the "First Look" segment does the footage air? Sometimes I miss the first clip when I go to the movies. Maybe go see Coraline instead of Pink Panther 2, unless you need to see a 'G' rated movie.Avatar Imagetwinmom says: DylanAqua - Yes, the scene with Dumbledore levitating things did look like Slughorn's not the Dursley's home. I think there was a piano in the scene which was described in the book (if I remember right). The scene seemed to be putting back what Slughorn destroyed in the muggle home where he was staying at the beginning of the book. Avatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: This is sofa king stupid. What's WB's purpose of releasing new clips in ONLY Regal theaters?! And why the hell Regal theaters out of all the theaters in the world? And why release new clips again this early when the movie comes out in July? Mind-boggling marketing.Avatar Imagedecarus says: It has to be slughorn's home. I thought it was confirmed that the dusrleys were cut from the film. I always enjoy the Regal First Look, but don't usually make it in time to see them. I might be convinced to go see something today. There are a lot of pretty good films out i would like to see. Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: i want to seeeee it! ohgeez.Avatar Imagehp29 says: i want to see that!!! it sounds awesome!!Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE HERMIONE LINE!!!!!Avatar Imagecztery says: I hope it will be on YouTube soonAvatar Imagehepburn says: I really want to see these!!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: I wish I could see this! Please, please, someone post in online, I have to see all of that! Argh! Why can't I live in the States?!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Okay, can someone answer me this: is this ALL Regal theaters, or just a select few?Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: Since the only time I get to the theater is to see a HP Movie, I will have to wait unti it shows up on You Tube. If they hadn't changed the date, we would be looking forward to the DVD release.Avatar Imagearyell says: OMG!!! I have to go to a Regal movie theatre now!!! Ack!!!Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: Cool!!! I want to go see Coraline on Monday. Hope to see. I will leave early Yeah!!!!Avatar Imagecolorsofinsanity says: Would it be possible for anyone to try and get this online?Avatar ImageSarabi says: Wish my theater was doing this instead of Regal! We hardly have any Regals in Arizona anyways....booAvatar ImageLunaGinervaBlack says: Well, I'm going to hope it's the Dursleys and not the Slughorn scene, because the image in my head of goblets hitting the Dursleys on the head is something I want to badly see onscreen. Also, DD telling them off. And Hermione's birds!! And the "vomit" line! LOL osuhgaoifaifjfafj The rest sounds great too!Avatar ImageIngvia says: I really hope someone will put it on the internet! I want to see this!Avatar Imagehpgeekinpink says: WEEEE Can't wait to see it!!!Avatar ImageWhitzard says: i want to see that birds. xD I want to see than movie xD 159 days 9 hours 56 minutes...Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: i hope these make it online soon... Avatar Imagelostielover says: I can't wait to see this! I guess I'll have to actually go to the movie theatre now...Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I want to see this very badly!!! I'm going to have to go to the movies tomorrow!!!Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: I want to see these soo bad!! I can't wait! This movie is going to be AWESOME!Avatar ImageBell Dema says: Ooohhh, I want it on YouTube... ASAP!!Avatar ImageRose-Mclane says: I thought the Dursley's was cut. I think Andrew was mistaken unless we actually SEE them in the house. Anyway, my moms birthday in Monday so maybe we can go see Coraline if she wants to. Maybe I'll have to black mail her into it. It is HER birthday after all >_>.Avatar Imagehalf-blood-queen says: I can only hope it ends up on youtube. I¨m really looking forward to Hermione sending the bord at Ron :DAvatar ImageFer_keeper says: Yay! I wish it were on YouTube already. I have to say I am really looking forwards to Hermione saying "Excuse me, I have to go vomit" :PAvatar Imagekiwimci says: Does anyone know of a UK equivalent of this? Picturehouse perhaps? Yay those R/Hr bits sound awesome I cant wait to see the 2 of them in this film, and thank God the birds are in there! I love Hermione's comment and I didn't even know the Dursleys were going to be included. I'm still really sorry the Other Minister isnt in though, I loved that start and imagined Michael Sheen as the primeminister. Get this preview on youtube now people!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: I saw the "first look" today at a Cinemark theatre seeing Pink Panther 2.....i missed the first part of it, (which must have been the part with Dumbledore levitating things)... as I wasnt in the theatre when it first came on, but upon hearing Dumbledore's voice, I like pushed by people to get to my seat. I did see the clips with ron, hermione, the vomit line and the birds...I was completely in shock and was so bummed that I missed the beginning...I kept thinking I need to see this again and again and I hope it makes it to youtube or something...Oh, and I also remember a line from Ron to Harry that went something like: "Harry, these girls are going to kill me.".........I was so excited, but then got depressed because July still seems too far away!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I wish a Regal Theaters cinema was in my vicinity! Hopefully Warner Brothers releases this content to the fans soon.Avatar Imagel-u-n-a says: those scenes sound really cool. wish i could see themAvatar Imagel-u-n-a says: those scenes sound really cool. wish i could see them. Avatar Imageathena024 says: The birds scene made it!!! I'm so happy! And hahahaha "Excuse me, I have to go vomit." Hermione!!!!Avatar Imagecdewson says: to bad theres none of those theaters near meAvatar Imagekayzz says: ohhh! yay! the herm throwing birds thing! this makes me really happy. (i feel like frak:) i hope it comes online soon.Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: GAH! What!!!??? No way! AWESOME! As a matter of fact, I'm going to see Pink Panther 2 later today! I'm gonna try to convince everyone and go really early to see if I can catch this! OMG I really hope I get to see it!!!Avatar ImageSophie Treklemmer says: Oh gawd, I would do anything to see those clips! I hope they leak online somehow! =DAvatar Imageomgitslouise says: I hope they leak online, that would make me so happy =] If anyone finds them, then post it here!!!!Avatar Imagethewandofdestiny says: ahh! i wish i could see it!! twinmom: you're so lucky!!! i hope everyone will get a chance to see it.Avatar ImageHalfBloodPrincess121 says: omfg im going to see pink panther 2 in regal theater tomorrow!!!!!!! im excited. ill probly cry i did the first time i saw a trailer for it this year. before twilight. i clapped ytooAvatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: I want to see this so bad! Is it just Regal theaters then, or are there others too? I don't think there are any of those theaters near me... I really, really want to go see Coraline now!!! Hopefully it at least comes onto YouTube soon!Avatar Imagelunaluu says: I am so glad they are keeping the part where Dumbledore is moving thing around in their house....Avatar Imagepadfoot1500 says: This is also showing at Cinemark theaters during their "First Look" before the trailers start. I saw it when I went to see Coraline last night.Avatar ImageHROAR Mudblood Proud says: Ahhh! Thanks, padfoot1500. I was going to see Coraline at a Cinemark theatre. Now I'll know to go early. : )Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: I wonder what movie they are in front of. We have regal here in Syracuse!!Avatar Imagetwinmom says: The preview is in front of Pink Panther 2.Avatar Imagechrissyweasley says: GAH now i'm definitely going to try harder to see coraline sooner haha :) excuse me i have to go plan out my weekend... (:Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: We have a Regal Theater but it is *sniff, sniff* not running the extended preview.Avatar Imagegottaluvharry7 says: Okay this is definitely not just running at Regal theaters. I went to see Coraline at an AMC theater today, and it was the exact same thing as far as I can tell from the description. Unless maybe somehow Regal and AMC are connected in some way? Either way it was really awesome. And I thought that the levitating scene was the Dursley's when I saw it, but maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention. Anyway it might just be playing before children's movies at AMC because it seemed to be a child's sort of theme to the first look movies they were showing. But definitely try to see it if you have a chance.Avatar ImageZoom says: YOUTUBE!!!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: My sister and I just went to city like one zillion miles away to go to a Regal theater. We even talked to the manager & he was like "Oh, yeah, Harry Potter clip is in front of 'He's Just Not That Into You'" So we were like, OH YAY. NOTHING. Only the trailer. We got really mad. So we went to watch Gran Torino inside. Waste of time. But Gran Torino was good =PAvatar ImageHPNAIV says: So we went to watch Gran Torino instead. * LOL :D ( Oh , and we talked to the manager on the phone before we went. )Avatar ImageMiradon says: @Zoom What do you mean "YOUTUBE!!!"? Is it online or something yet? Avatar ImageProfessor Cassandra says: So the Dursleys are going to be in it after all! The whole thing sounds awesome, I hope I'll get to see it.Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: Must.See.Clips.Avatar ImageArryG says: Some please record this and get it on youtube!!!!! It's almost been 24 hours!Avatar ImageJaJaRavenclaw says: Since I've never heard of Regal theaters, it's probably not for me to see, but sweet! I'm glad Dumbledore levitates things at the Dursley's, that's one of my favorite Dumbledore funny things. And the birds Hermione throws at Ron! That has got to be great. Avatar Imagemichaelabraham says: birds!!!Avatar Imagemaddypuff says: Haha, hermione throws birds at ron xDAvatar ImageWeird One says: Saw the trailer at the movies today and it was great. Can't wait to see the film.Avatar Imageburningpumpkins says: Lol. Hermione isn't throwing wind at them, then? HAHA!Avatar Imagea1000wtp says: I can't wait till they put it on the net.... SOME ONE HAS TO PUT IT ON THE NET!! cough... sorryAvatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: Sheesh, they're gonna five away the whole film by the time it finally comes out... But since they're doing it anyway... YES! Dumbledore levitating stuff at the Dursley's!! I thought they'd cut that scene! I LOVE THAT SCENE!!!Avatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: ChristinePotter, you should've asked for a refund!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: OK I just got back from seeing Coraline which was really #$%^ing trippy by the way. Kinda scary(freaky scary, not bloody/intense scary) and it was actually my very first movie in 3D, even though I'm 25. My eyes are still hyper alert from it. But yeah, the Half Blood Prince first look was so awesome!!!!! This cinematography was amaza-dazing. In my opinion Oscar worthy. Very beautiful lighting, even in the near total digital world of Quiddich. It talked about the dark stuff first which I don't think had much new, but that could just be my memory fading and showed a little more of potions class. It showed Hermione talking about amortentia, "The strongest love potion in the world." she says. Emma says how in the movie Hermione finally comes to grips with her feelings for Ron. You can tell Hermione says the Apunno(sp?) spell right after she's done crying in the trailer. She unexpectedly says it pretty quietly. The birds moved so fast I didn't really see them and only saw Ron and Lavender laughingly stroll into the room then they miss Ron and splat into a door behind him. It's all kind of a blur after that though but I remember Bellatrix swooping down near the burrow(we saw a little of this in the ABC family sneak peek), Harry, Ron, and Hermione walking though the non-bridge courtyard in regular clothes, a little WWW with Fred and George, Dumbledore talking to Harry while pouring a memory and then the camera glides down into the Pensive(looked so bitchin), some really quick quiditch shots, Dumbledore moving furniture around Slughorn's House, a little of Draco and Harry in the bathroom where it looks like Draco shoots a spell at Harry and misses before I assume Harry does Sectumsemprea, Ron saying the girls are going to kill him, then it cuts to a shot of Harry grinning from the scene at the burrow that we've seen a few pictures of with H, R, and Hr in Ron's room. After that Hermione tells Harry in the library "That girl over there, she's making a love potion for you.", Harry goes, Oh really? looks over and then the rest of the scene plays out with her hitting him over the head with the newspaper. I'm' sure a forgot quite a few things, some guy was sitting down next to me and asked if I minded him putting down the arm rest between us. My eyes were so glued to the screen I almost didn't respond but I think I said, ..yeah-go-ahead.. really quickly so I was sadly distracted for a sec. If it's not uploaded to youtube by the end of the weekend I'm going to see another movie just so I can see it again! Also, Dumbledore DOES NOT LEVITATE STUFF AT THE DURSLEYS. He's in Slughorns House when he does this. I really don't like it when misinformation like this happens because people get hurt thinking something's in the movie when it's not. Then they don't get angry at the person who started the rumor, whom they should, they get angry the extremely broad entity "WB" thinking the scene was cut when it was never there to cut in the first place! Avatar Imagedjpolaris says: still mad i had to wait longer...but still again ill be in line for it...Avatar ImageMiradon says: Thanks for the description YodatheHobbit, I can't wait to see this. Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: I wanna see this! It best go on to youtube or as the tv promotion it sounds great! :D xxxAvatar ImageDolemite says: Too bad I never get out to the theatre.Avatar Imagesaoirse42 says: I want to see it! I think it's cool that they are giving us all this extra stuff since the movie was delayed. (Even though that was unexcusable)Avatar Imagelnh92 says: I wish there was a Regal theater near here.Avatar ImageHagiographer13 says: Sadly I sat through 2 abysmal films (Pink Panther & New in Town) hoping to catch this (thought it would be part of "First Look") but NOOOO!!!!!! (sighs and goes back to looking at trailer screencaps)Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Let's hope it goes onto YouTube soon! I've been checking non stop but it hasn't been added yet :(Avatar Imagebookmonster79 says: I can't wait! I've never been more excited for summer.Avatar Imagedianap00 says: I will be in Boston this weekend, it's a long shot but I wanna see if I can get in on one of those Regal Theatre previews... though it may leak onto the tube (pardon the pun). Ohh, the possibilities...Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: It's on youtube now. But very, very dark. :( ImageArryG says: Tooooo dark....Avatar ImageChrysanthemum says: As a radio broadcast it's okay though. ;) Seriously, it's interesting to listen to, if not actually see.Avatar ImageEmily Erland says: Hmm, may have to schedule a movie night out with some local HP buddies to catch a glimpse of this (is hoping the "First Look" will show before Coraline)Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: Are you guys excited...I'm excited. especially since Dumbledore goes to the Dursely's house and Hermione throws birds at Ron. :DAvatar ImageArryG says: Dumbledore does not go to the Dursleys house - the house Slughorn stays at just looks similar.Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Awesome!!!Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: Oh okay, thanks for clarifying ArryG. :)Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Wow! I would love to see that one!Avatar Imageebcjoel says: Poor quality but here it is: Imagemugglemom4 says: That is so cool, I want to see them. I will have to check out some more movies and hound the movie theatre. Avatar Imagecoolpoo says: I am looking forward to watch this moviesAvatar Imageeagleblue says: Exciting!
