Clip from “Half-Blood Prince” Airs at End of Oscars


Feb 22, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

As promised, a very brief clip from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was broadcast tonight at the end of the Oscar awards. However, this was part of a montage segment of other films with no sound included, and most of the footage appeared to be taken from one of the earlier trailers. UPDATE: It is now on YouTube here, thanks to UHP!
What we did see included brief shots of Quidditch, Draco on the Hogwarts Express, Harry looking in the Pensieve and Ron and Hermione looking upwards at something. One shot of interest showed Dumbledore and Harry in the cave, with Dumbledore grasping the chain to lift the Voldemort’s old boat from the waters. We hope to have this video up in our galleries soon, and will update when we can.

Avatar ImageThatJordanEdwards says: Great! Looking forward to seeing in the Galleries. Unfortunately I wasn't able to see it live on the Oscars. Is it July yet?Avatar Imagel-u-n-a says: can't wait to see itAvatar Imagestevenk12468 says: GEEEZE....I wish I had watched the Oscars! I wanted to see it. Hopefully, Youtube will have it up! :pAvatar Imagedecarus says: Well that was exactly what i expected. Five seconds and only one new shot. It was nice to see something harry potter on the television though. I am sort of ready for this film to come out because it has been way too long and i am getting sick of it. Avatar ImageSophie Treklemmer says: Aww.. too bad it wasn't any longer, but the more clips we see the happier I will be! ;D I want to see the movie so much!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: It was really good, but way too short. The Dumbledore part was interesting.Avatar Imageisc_hector says: Ok, it's official.... I HATE my country! (Mexico) They didn't broadcast the clips after the show, and hence, I didn't watch the HBP clip... I know most of it has already been shown and I'll be able to see it in YouTube in a few more minutes, but still! Anyway, I liked the ceremony, it was kind of emotive and refreshing, loved to see Meryl Streep looking so gorgeous and Anne Hathaway and all of them.Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: upload upload UPLOAD!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I missed the video, but it certainly sounds enthralling! I cannot wait to watch it when it is uploaded to the internet.Avatar ImageSarabi says: I didn't even get to see it, it cut straight to the news as soon as the Oscars were over. I was kind of miffed XDAvatar Imagegreatpetie83 says: I'm of to bed (it's 6:11 am here in the Netherlands, CET)), Pro 7 didn't air the preview for 2009 :( So I have to wait for it to appear in the galleries.Avatar Imagepottervfd says: First! Whoo! Yeah, I went in expecting not a lot, but at least something better than what they gave us. I mean, it was basically a 5 second clip show with 2 seconds of new footage. Plus, there was no sound! Just a stupid song playing over all the clips. Although I guess I should've expected it would be short because it had to run in a certain amount of time.Avatar Imagedecarus says: The only new bit was of harry flying during quidditch. I am pretty sure i had seen the rest before in other various clips. It would have been nice to add some dialogue but i wasn't expecting much. I am ready for a new trailer or behind the scenes something. Avatar ImageFonty says: And in Germany (Pro 7) everything but the previews showed. That´s sad, but the show was good, anyways. Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: jip!Avatar ImageHedwig17 says: ARGHHHHH!! I wait the whole show to see it and it's 5 am here and the Portuguese tv didn't show it ARGHHH im sooooooooooooooooooo pissed off. Please someone put it online pleaseeee Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: I liked the new (very short) clip of Harry and Dumbledore in the cave. I saw some movies I hadn't heard about before (The Boat That Rocked, something with a hamster), so that worked.Avatar Imageisc_hector says: Wow, you guys are very sharp eyed, I wouldn't have caught the "new" part of the clips (Harry-Quidditch, Dumbledore-Cave)... I want to see this movie soooo badly!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: I liked the whole montage, I thought it was a nice variety and well put together. There were quite a few films featured in it which I'm looking forward to seeing, but of course... I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HBP!!!Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: Very short, yet exciting for me!Avatar Imagestevenk12468 says: Is that all? WOW! I expect a little more...:sAvatar Imagepennynickles says: Ya, I was kinda bummed about how short it was. But I already knew I was going to be dissapointed after they started because each movie only got a few seconds.Avatar Imagejulvett says: cool, i'm syked for the movie!Avatar ImageHagiographer13 says: I squeed like crazy when I saw the clip -- Dumbledore grabbing the boat chain was amazing! Also, lots of shots of HP actors throughout (Jule Walters, Rob Pattinson, etc.) made it that much more fun. OT -- the films and actors I wanted to win didn't, but I am used to the Oscars disappointing an HP fan.Avatar ImageSareptheRavenclaw says: Very brief. But still awesome!Avatar Imagepottermania97 says: the oscars were fabulous! i saw the entire thing live although i couldn't see the hbp clip anne hatthaway looked gorgeous and also a jolie kate winslet won for the best actress! sean penn for best actor it was great slumdog millionaire bagged 8 oscarsAvatar Imagepottermania97 says: robert pattinson was there too Avatar Imagerhadamenthes says: Really disappointed. No sound except the horrible music and HPB stuck in the middle of all the other '09 releases. The 5 sec clip went by so quickly I was glad I Tivo'd it. Watched it back and caught the Dumbledore scene. I think that was the only new scene in the clip. 144 days and counting. It can't get here soon enough.Avatar ImageThe Hufflepuff Giraffe says: Not terribly exciting, but I think the Draco clip was pretty cool. Ahhh, I can't wait 'til July. Avatar Imagerenaeofgriffindor says: You go Sue! You are right on it! It wasnt much but I was happy for it, it was nice to see our Harry Potter up there.. amongst the others...was it me or a new view on the quidditch team flying.and a new view of Harry and Dumbledore in the cave!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: So I hear the people in the Quiddich shot are actually Ginny and Ron. If you keep repeating the 2 sec's over and over again you can see that one of them has much too long hair to be Harry, and the other is wearing Ron's helmet.Avatar ImageKanar17 says: I was hoping for glad I didnt sit through the whole awards show just for that!Avatar ImageRosalie says: Ginny and Ron playing Quidditch! That was the only new shot for me.Avatar Imagehp29 says: i guess i shouldn't be surprized. I didnt expect much, but i did a little more than that. It was still good to see something! I can't wait to see it.. Avatar Imagemomentofzen says: The Oscars this year = pretty darn good actually. Those clips = big puddle of lamesauce. My excitement for Sherlock Holmes = multiplied by like a gazillion. Screw New Moon. Pffft.Avatar ImageoOoVettyoOo says: the clip totally sucked.. thank god i didnt sit through the whole oscars waiting for thatAvatar ImageVeganMudblood says: Pretty disappointing; the footage they showed was muted - just repeat combination of clips from the trailers. I expected an entire clip of a scene...Oh, well. :-/Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Yay more new bits! Even just a little makes me happy! I can't wait for HBP!Avatar Imagesweetquietgirl89 says: so short and most of the scnes were alreday seen from the trailers, but still cool only 4 months to go hehehehAvatar ImageNiphai says: hmmm.. I expected a little bit more..Avatar Imageanimalz10 says: Also where I live (az) they did not show the credits after the oscars, just cut straight to the stupid news. it was an outrage, but apparently I didn't miss much...Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: that was like nothing! hmm maybe i'll appriciate it more if i see it in better quality...Avatar Imageangelac123 says: That was quite good, but would have been a whole heap better if there was more of it!!!! I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE MOVIE COMES OUT!!!!!Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Looking forward to seeing it in the galleries, although it doesn't sound like there is much new footage! Can't wait for July!!Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: wow,nice long preview,just like the mtv one XD i'm glad i haven't sit thru thw whole showAvatar Imageele0206 says: really brief...I had to watch it 3 times to see everything well.. But, of course, better than nothing!Avatar Imagescarymissmary28 says: No sound!? only 2 new scenes!?!? They had to show sth better!Avatar ImageMcTricks says: It's like a joke...Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: I was very disappointed. It was stuff we've already seen between the trailers and behind the scenes stuff that was out with the OOTP DVD. Between this and the MTV stuff I'm starting to get a little annoyed with the WB. I wanna see something juicy!Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: How measly. It's literally like 6 seconds long. Just a few new shots rather than anything major.Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: I stayed up for that... I cannot believe it. And now I have to study because I didn't yesterday xDAvatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: I stayed up for that too, and skipped studying xD But, at least we've got all that new stuff from Australia! It's so good!Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: i watched the whole oscars to watch that 16 second clip. JEEZ!!!!Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: These clips are never long enough!Avatar ImageBookworm Jen says: I wasn't particularly impressed with the HBP footage (other than Dumbledore pulled on the chain, which was cool), but I really enjoyed the Oscars. They had talked about wanting to freshen things up and make the show entertaining again, and in my opinion, they succeeded. The show really was about celebrating all movies, not just the nominees. And I'm a huge musical fan, so I loved the musical numbers! :)Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: That's 'GYP', abandonedboyjon. And, yes it was!Avatar ImageDolemite says: That sucked the big one.Avatar Imagerebel says: what that it?Avatar ImageFwanninator says: I'm REALLY glad I didn't stay up for that.... *grumbles* stupid, stupid WB....Avatar Imagekbicprez says: VERY BRIEF. If you blinked, you missed a lot of it. LOL.Avatar Imageravenclaw1028 says: Oh I can't wait! I just wish this clip was longer.Avatar Imagejenvomitvos says: such a let down! how did i know this would happen!Avatar ImageZivlok says: That is depressingly short.Avatar ImageFreshInkGrrl says: It was like being stranded in the desert, severely dehydrated, and only getting a few measly drips of water from your canteen-- welcome, but WAAAY to little!Avatar ImageeiVega says: I personally thought it was lame. So much hype for nothing. I enjoyed watching the Oscars and would have done so anyway but the brief glimpse at the end was not worth the publicity it got. It didn't even get full screen coverage! It split the screen with the credits!!Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: Did they say it was 5 seconds? I had guess 2 seconds. If you watched the Oscars hoping to see the HBP clip, if you blinked, you missed it. This just proves that if you want to see it, wait for YouTube.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: it was kind of a tease, but i am happy that they showed it...i think it was a great idea to do that at the end of the oscars bc i actually found out about several movies that i want to watch, that i didn't know about.... i thought the oscars were really entertaining this year...great new formatAvatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: I want more!!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: THIS IS SO LAME! Leave it to WB to hype it up then under deliver Avatar Imageselene21 says: that's it???? I want moreAvatar ImageLady of the Lake says: much too short :(Avatar ImageDanielleD says: I was so tired last night that I went to bed at 8:30. I asked my mom to wake me up when the clip was going to come on, and she didn't :( I was only able to see it today, but I guess I didn't miss much. Isn't it only 10 seconds long? Can't wait till July! Avatar Imagekbicprez says: YouTube says 16 seconds. Didn't seem that long last night.Avatar Imagetinagin says: It was fun to see it but it was really nothing new.Avatar ImageNayNay3782 says: Isn't it only like 15 seconds long or something? haha idkAvatar Imagekiwimci says: bit of an anti-climax. Thank God for the other preview out todayAvatar ImageLunaGinervaBlack says: wow, just watched it on youtube. that was not much!Avatar Imagelaxrox93 says: i was kinda dull i was hoping for another trailer and it ended up looking like a cut from the ones we already gotAvatar Imageharrypotter1991 says: I was disappointed that they only had time to show about 10 seconds of HBP movie clips.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Well, thanks for posting it! I'm glad i didnt stay up to watch the oscars, since the clip was not even 20 seconds long.Avatar ImageErinM says: I know it's "something" but two seconds of new info wasn't necessarily worth waiting up past midnight for (although I did!) I feel cheated!!!Avatar Imagemuzic823 says: Yikes, that's nothing new and very short!Avatar Imageravenclawguy1972 says: nice clip but a bit disappointing i was hoping for longer and more new stuff Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: I saw it last night. It's tiny in length, but it looks very good! :)Avatar Imageiamminerva says: Not much of a glimpse but better than nothing, I guess! I am looking forward to seeing the whole movie. I wonder what else is coming out that weekend? Hopefully, nothing too great. I always want the HP movie to win the box office battle for the week it comes out and at least one more weekend. I believe it was GOF that won for the first 3 weeks, wasn't it? That was cool! Did anyone else happen to see the 3-hour show that was on AMC on Friday night? It was called the Ten Top Ten. They counted down the top ten movies in ten different categories. As part of the opening montage, a brief "Sorcerere's Stone" clip was shown, so I expected that SS or some other HP film would be on one of the lists. I was quite disappointed when I watched the whole thing and saw no mention of any HP film. The top fantasy film was "The Wizard of Oz" and number two was "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King". I really expected SS to be on that list but it wasn't mentioned for the whole 3 hours! It was a good show to watch but disappointing. HP is so popular! Why can't one of the films have been named at least number ten? Avatar Imagearmpitfarts says: awe man i missed this. Stupid project... anyways ill watch it now =)Avatar Imageraven_puff says: wow, when they said short, I didn't think they ment 16 seconds!Avatar ImageThe Silver Doe music says: Yes, it certainly was short! We didn't even get sound, there was music playing over it :(Avatar ImageLis Lovegood says: I knew better then to sit through all that for a short clip, but I did it anyway. Why am I always so hopeful?Avatar Imagekamidee says: Found this a bit dissapointing, nothing new and it was shown so quickly that I couldn't really see anything great about iAvatar ImageTiahn says: AHHH *SQUEEE* AHHHH *SQUEE* AHHHH This is great! Did I hear somewhere it came from Australia? Hmm... Maybe i was dreaming PLEASE tell me if you know? This is gonna be my first piece of news!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: I want more!Avatar ImageMelissa Anne says: I watched the Oscars this year and they were not that bad, suprisingly...Avatar Imagemorgona says: It actually wasn't that great. I was hoping for more.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: yeah, sorta exciting looking forward to seeing it! xxAvatar ImageFelipe_Q says: All the same stuff from othr trailers, except for a LITTLE BIT more Quidditch and Dumbledore grabing the chain from the boat. I thought it was going to be a bit more, but oh well. I enjoyed watching the Oscars anyways!Avatar ImageVioletPhoenix says: saw this @ the end of the Oscars. would have been nice if it were longer but it was good to see anyway.Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: coolAvatar ImageBradyboy says: I was expecting more than 16 seconds. I wasn't a fan of the Oscars this year, it ran too long and the white writing on the nominees were annoying. Avatar ImageChromate says: I was starring at the TV screen hoping I didn't miss it! I was so excited when it finally showed up! I was disappointed though that it didn't reveal anymore footage, but oh well :(Avatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: Eww the clips were so badAvatar Imagelaxtrafficman says: That really wasn't that exciting. All of five seconds of stuff we've seen before. Ah least they tried.Avatar Imagebecmajec says: I stayed up so late to see that clip. It was moderately worth it. Avatar Imageluna.quibbler says: cool but seriously short!!!!Avatar ImageAubNoelle says: Awesome! Wish we coulda seen a HP actor present an award. Avatar ImageAubNoelle says: *Other than Robert Pattinson, but he was really representing Twilight
