Feb 21, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Well, this is a great way to start the day: footage from the MTV visit to the set of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is now online. As seen here via YouTube, interviews with actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry) and Rupert Grint (Ron) are available, as well hearing comments from actress Jessie Cave on her role as Lavender Brown. You can also see behind the scenes looks as they, along with actress Emma Watson (Hermione), are preparing to shoot the winter scene featuring the Trio and Lavender (presumably the necklace scene). Also new are comments from director David Yates on the well publicized new scene that has been written specifically for the movie regarding the Death Eater attack on the Burrow. Enjoy!

This footage is from the MTV “Spoilers” program which will be broadcast on the cable station around the world tonight at 8pm (ET).

Thanks Erna!

Avatar ImageLittlefawkes says: I'm glad I wasn't expecting much from it :P The same from the oscars.. Or is that just a part of it?Avatar ImageLizee says: Cool. :)Avatar ImageMuggleQueen says: Wow it's cool we got to see it earlier but it wasn't *that* exciting :/ Hopefully there'll be more when it's shown on MTV tonight!Avatar Imageomgitslouise says: Cool :] I hope there's more than just that. As exciting as 1 minute of footage is, an extra bit would be nice =]Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: SOOOOOO GOOODAvatar Imageaubrey015 says: oh wow! what a great way to end my day!Avatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: The clip is GREAT!!! I can't wait to see the whole video!! Martina xxxAvatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: Can't wait!Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Hope more goes up on YouTube soon - that finished just as it was getting interesting!! Or maybe that was the whole idea!!!Avatar Imagegrey_nightshirt says: Well, somehow I was expecting a tiny little bit more ;-)Avatar ImageMatea says: coool!Avatar Imagelaxrox93 says: I was hoping for a little more than that. Is there more?Avatar Imagetinagin says: Al la la la. I'm gonna wait until tonight!Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Yeah saw this already it was awesome! :)Avatar Imagejulvett says: God, I wish this movie would just come out tomorrow... I can't wait another 145 days.. :(Avatar ImageAccioAmanda says: I don't like that Death Eaters are attacking the burrow. That's will ruin all the surprise when they attack in DH. How will that affect the movies plot? But other than that, it was good. Avatar ImageIWannaBeAWeasley says: Wow...for once they actually didn't say "This one is a bit darker than the previous ones." Its kind of refreshing to hear something a bit different from them. I can't wait for the movie!Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: Cool that was awesome!Avatar Imagecdewson says: nice to see new stuff but. they didnt tell us anything we didnt already knowAvatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: Wonder if there will be more on MTV? I will still have to watch to see. Before OOTP came out, there were a lot of clips. Turns out that the clips were almost better than the movie. I hope HBP is much better and they do not have it so choppy.Avatar ImageMoody One says: OMG! I can't stand it! I need to see it NOW!!!!!!Avatar ImageGoderic Gryffindor says: Short but sweet!Avatar ImageAutumnWizard says: NeatAvatar Imagepottershrink says: D.R. looking good!Avatar Imagejenlynn619 says: Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint can come over to my house any time. Yum-oAvatar Imagehericus says: I agree with accioamanda, I mean it might be excelent so im not going to judge it really but when the death eaters come at the wedding it might be a bit weird 'cos they've already been there... if that makes sence? Wish they did just stick to the book. But still looking foward to it =]Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Fantastic. I will go watch it now.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Does anyone know where you might pick this up on the UK. MTV One has different stuff on over here than in the states. Its pissing me off I really wanna see the Watchmen stuff they've gotAvatar Imagelborealis says: I've heard a lot about the attack on the Burrow, but I was surprised to hear Yates denote "Harry and Ginny defending themselves" I'm intrigued, I didn't know it was HG centric. We shall see!Avatar Imagedehonestiss says: that is so kool! i'm not going to watch it though, just so i have the seer pleasure of getting to see it on tv.Avatar Imagelunaspec_gimmy says: I didn't find it too amazing really, nothing we didn't already know, I think most people had figured out the Weasley scene as well from the trailer. It's a shame how much emphasis they put on the romance part as well.Avatar Imagelucasdeb says: i am afraid that there wont be any harry ginny kiss scene after they won the cup, which I always thought it would be the best scene for them.....well just gonna have to live with it.....Avatar ImageSarabi says: I hope they have something more exciting for the oscar ceremony tomorrow >.>Avatar ImageBuffyXO says: I thought that the commentary about the Lavender/Ron kissing scene was a bit funny, especially given the latest Pottercast and the attention paid to the big Hermione/Ron scene in #7. I could imagine how awkward that must have been for them understanding the weight of it all and the fact that it was at a party. At least Harry's first kiss was without onlookers. Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I hope they put out more tonight!Avatar ImageGreat Uncle Algie says: awsome!Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: What time is it coming on?Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: Urghm.. I have mixed feelings about this.Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Eh, that was alight but I need more!! I hope the Oscars have something different.Avatar Imagestevenk12468 says: Can't wait for this amazing movie...Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: The scene at the burrow will be interesting.Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: Ahhh.........Cool :D xAvatar Imagerinanorreh says: I agree. That was really short but at least we got to see it.Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Hmm... I agree, I was expecting more. I was a little disappointed. Hopefully there's more stuff to this clip :)Avatar ImageBella1951 says: Is that just a part? Because it seemed really short...oh well, it was still great. Jessie looks like she'll be a fantastic Lavender. It must have been hard shooting the kiss scene after only three days.Avatar Imageanicobain16 says: I wonder what Harry and Ginny were doing before the Death Eaters attacked...Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I hope there will be more on MTV. But it was so exciting to see more scenes from the film. I can't wait until July 17!!!!!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: It's great ! I can't wait for the movie ! Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: yayAvatar ImageEdmundstaustell says: Dan's looks are starting to change---he seems rather remarkably handsome now, moreso than before. It may be that the long run of Equus has helped him mature a bit, or it may be just the passage of time. Sometimes it's hard to remember how old the kids are getting.Avatar Imagehp29 says: I can't wait to watch! im waiting until tonight to watch though!Avatar ImageSophie Treklemmer says: ....... aww. I was expecting Snape and Draco... but the trio is cool :D and I'm really exciting for the Borrow scene now!Avatar ImagePineApple says: i just cant wait for the movie now!!!!Avatar Imagelunas_my_gurl says: i cant wait to see what the attack on the burrow is going to be llikeAvatar ImageNiphai says: Yea.. I want to see that scene too.. Hope it fits in well xDAvatar ImageLucia Meadows says: A nice little blurb. Good thing I wasn't expecting too much out of this. Jessie's voice sounds nice.Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: Was that it, or is there more?Avatar ImageGinnyClone30250 says: The movie needs to come out NOW!Avatar ImageChrissyPuff says: I dont want to watch any of it until it airs. Otherwise I'll just be disappointed tonight with already seeing everything.Avatar Imageplacebowiz says: coooooolAvatar Imagehermyone08 says: that's cool, but I still will watch it tonight! :0Avatar ImageMaggieM says: was that it? It just came one, and lasted for like 30 seconds, and I don't think there is any more. What a disappointment!Avatar ImageMaggieM says: ok wait..can we please discuss this new scene? I don't really understand. I mean, so Harry and Ginny have to defend themselves at the Weasley's house? When? At the beginning? I'm confused....Avatar Imagehp29 says: I thought it was going to be longer.... Avatar Imagepinkmoonlight says: Well, that was a complete waste of time. I thought they were going to show more!Avatar Imagehglovesrw says: I guess I shouldn't have expected more than that. I like tuned into the MTV and expected like a full segment not 1:06. I'm a little sad now.Avatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: I can't believe they just created a scene out of their ass! That's what grates me so much about WB, all they care about is their stupid money and selling tickets. People will still see this movie regardless if they made that scene or not. It's Harry Potter for crying out loud! People will see because it's Harry Potter. I wish WB cared more about what really matters. They make a movie based on an amazing book. They should stick to the book. Not create Death Eater scenes out of their ass! >:-[Avatar Imagehpluver88 says: I'm so disappointed they didn't show more during the actual show! :( Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: stephanie, i know how you feel. i was like "that's it?!"Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Yeah I saw it already. Hmm wish they would give us more. . .Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Yeah, I really wish there was more.... very disappointed by it!Avatar ImageRosalie says: I wish they would've shown more... I like the idea of the Burrow attack thing though.Avatar Imagetinagin says: Squee. Can't wait to see what they will show at the Oscars!Avatar Imagelnh92 says: awesome footageAvatar ImageRose-Mclane says: I was pretty annoyed that they didn't show more. I never watch MTV so that was a waste of time considering I saw the video on Leaky anyway. How are people, that visit the fan sites still just finding out about this new scene? Its staring to annoy me every time I see a complainer.Avatar ImageBradyboy says: I thought it was a waste of time too, way to brief considering that people from other movies showe up to talk about it. I already knew about the Weasley attack. Avatar Imagetwiwizardjedi says: A bit of a disappointment there. Here's hoping the Oscar's sneak peek gives us something new.Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: Ooh, it's so great to finally see some interviews with Jessie Cave! I've been looking forward to seeing something from her since she was cast. It was only a little clip, I know, but it's still awesome.Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: Nice. :)Avatar Imagedecarus says: Yeah, the burrow scene is sort of harry/ginny centric. Ginny and harry have the moment on the stairs where she is in a robe, i think. The burrow is attacked. Harry sees bellatrix and chases her. Ginny then chases harry. They get split up in the running through the wheat and then ginny gets disarmed by fenrir. Harry then comes to her rescue and stands between her and fenrir. That is harry and ginny/centric. Then arthur, remus, and tonks arrive to help them back to the burrow and the death eaters leave. It is different from the book and as long as they don't get rid of the burrow attack in DH, i am okay with it. I think the new clips looked great. Hope we get more tomorrow. Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool! I want more, though. Accio July!Avatar Imagebookishgal says: It was shorter than I hoped for. Just makes me want more.Avatar Imagesweetquietgirl89 says: very intresting Avatar Imagemouse68 says: For those complaining about the new scene and them changing things, you need to be aware that they discussed this with Jo and she is TOTALLY on board with this scene and other changes. Unlike a lot of her fans, Jo understands that a film is a different medium to a book and they sometimes need to find different ways of getting a story across. For those saying they aren't being "faithful" to the books, compared to many book to film translations they have been extraordinarily faithful, and people should try to occasionally give the producers credit for this faithfulness rather than accusing them of trashing the books for making what are for the most part minor changes and such which is over the top and not true. I'm not saying the films have been perfect, and there have been some misteps along the way but as someone who has been appalled at many book to film translations over my life of filmgoing, I am pretty impressed by what the team behind this series of films has done overall.Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Cool!! Now I'm even more excited for the movie! I can't wait!!! :DAvatar ImageGobbledygook says: Yay! i cant wait for HBP!Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: I missed it on MTV. Oh all right, I'll go look at it...Avatar ImageErinM says: I also wish hey could stick closer to the books. I read an interview with Rupert in the HBP movie poster book that a favorite scene of his was when they set the Burrow on fire. I agree with many of the earlier statements...I hope this doesn't change the plot too much for the DH1 and DH2 movies.Avatar ImageErinM says: However, as an addition to my previous comment...144 more days? Seriously?Avatar ImageDrome says: It was very nice to see it. But - I can't wait 'till July.... ://Avatar Imagehannah abbot says: the film looks amazing cant wait!!!! Avatar Imagejenlynn619 says: I personally don't mind the idea of additional or enhanced scenes added to the films. Remember, reading and seeing are two totally different experiences.Avatar Imagecjdiddums says: I dont get the added scene i think they should put more of the book in and less of there made up stuff. I dunno how they are gunna bring the mirrors into the next two movies or what they are gunna say about the locket as they where suposed to have cleaned out grimmould place in OOTP too :( xxxAvatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I wish they would have shown us more. I can't wait till July!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: Wasn’t that video the same one we saw on YouTube earlier? What a monumental WASTE OF TIME! Now I remember why I stopped watching MTV when I finished high school. “Spoilers” cannot be meant for anyone over 12 years (my apologies if you’re under 12). It was almost painful to sit through that junk, but I thought there would be more about HBP. That show is REALLY STUPID. Never again MTV!!!!! Avatar ImagePeriwinkleEnigma says: i cant wait for the movie to come out! I just love all of Ron's lovesick scenes, rupert does them very wellAvatar Imagekayzz says: i think it looks pretty cool, but i guess i thought it would be longer and i really don't like the thought of the Burrow attack at all. but other than that, i enjoyed it.Avatar Imagelucasdeb says: On the book the trio kept reading about families and several ppl being atacked during that school other words nobody in the wizard world was they decided to put that in the movie thru this atack which i think it was very cool....i just think that we will see harrys and ginnys kiss for the first time in this scene, which makes me angry cause I wish it was like it was in the book, after the final game.....but think like this.....we will have an extra scene that we dont know how it willl develop until july, and I am sure that Jo aproves of it, they wouldnt bring more ppl from the book only to create a attack scene would they???Avatar Imagequoddy says: Errrghhh. One minute? xD I didn't>.> Oh wow. They talked about how it's 'dark' again. I love these guys!Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: Cool!Avatar ImageNayNay3782 says: AWESOME! i cant wait. why cant it just be OUT ALREADY IN THEATERS!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: "Wasn’t that video the same one we saw on YouTube earlier? What a monumental WASTE OF TIME! Now I remember why I stopped watching MTV when I finished high school. “Spoilers” cannot be meant for anyone over 12 years (my apologies if you’re under 12). It was almost painful to sit through that junk, but I thought there would be more about HBP. That show is REALLY STUPID. Never again MTV!!!!!" Of course it's the same one on youtube! Where the heck did you think the one from youtube came from. Seriously, use your brain please.Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: I thought it was going to be more than that, I was disappointed. I can't wait to see the movie only 144 days, 8 hours, 2 minutes & 10 seconds. huh.Avatar ImageQueenall says: I loved it!!!!!Avatar ImageQueenall says: I loved it!!!!!Avatar Imagepenelope_clearwater973 says: looking now. i've heard it's a little disappointing!Avatar ImageSusan5124 says: I am still so disappointed to hear of the scene in the Burrow. It's going to take away from the wedding scene in book 7. Sometimes I wonder how much these things are really thought through.Avatar Imagedecarus says: Harry and Ginny do not kiss for the first time during the burrow attack scene. They kiss right after the sectumsempra scene. After the sectumsempra scene Harry and Ginny then take the half-blood prince's potions book to the room of requirements. Ginny tells harry to close his eyes so she can hide it so harry won't know where it is and then she kisses him while his eyes are closed. I am pretty sure they only kiss the one time in HBP and the burrow attack is during christmas and the sectumsempra scene is once they return to hogwarts after christmas. Avatar Imagepenelope_clearwater973 says: i hope there's more!Avatar ImageOnlyAshes says: 144 days...Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: so are we going to post this video on youtube? cuz its past 8...and i wanna see it!!!Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: cool!!!!Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: It's great to hear something from the girl playing Lavender Brown.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: OMG oh my goddy lol can't wait, can't wait, can't wait toooo exciting! lol arrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggg!!!!!!!!!! xxxAvatar ImageFelipe_Q says: It's always nice to see more footage, but this one wasn't THAT exciting to me. LOL! sorry!Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: i took over my brother's tv this weekend in vegas to see this on MTV.. i was excited w/ the stuff they showed us and i can't wait for the movie but i was kinda sad w/ that they only showed a bit, not that much really...
