Rumor Alert: There are various reports on the net this morning, such as this one from Action Figure Insider, stating a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be airing before the showing of Watchmen when it opens in IMAX. The blogger writes:

On Monday night I was invited to a special IMAX test screening of
Warner Brothers Watchmen movie that will be released this coming Friday
to a theater near you. Why did I call it a “test screening?” Because it’s one of the longest IMAX movies ever attempted and it barely fits on the projection platters. They
literally have to wind the film extra tight and work on the humidity in
the projection booths to make sure this all works right. Warner
Brothers has requested that the new Harry Potter trailer be attached to
the IMAX prints and even just that minute and a half of extra film on
the platter is causing concerns for the IMAX theaters.

Watchmen is due to open this weekend. For now, keep this in the rumor category; more when we get it, stay tuned!

Avatar ImagePeteJHumphreys says: Isn't Watchmen an 18 (or US equiv)... Would seem like a funny place to premier a trailer for a family film...Avatar ImageAinsley Haynes says: According to a WB PR, the trailer will be released today for the fan sites.Avatar Imageabbyluna says: Watchmen is rated R here in the US and I agree it would seem pretty silly to attach HBP especially if it went down to a PG rating. Though it would be cool to see it since I'll be attending the Watchmen midnight showing tonight, I highly doubt it would happen. We'll see anyway.Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Rated R? Bummer. Maybe they are trying to promote the movie to the adults as well. How long is the movie that is is that big? I find it amazing with all the extra technical things they are doing to get the film to fit on the projector. Avatar Imagej0ames says: YAY!
