New Half-Blood Prince Trailer to Show in Theaters before Ghosts of Girlfriends Past May 1st

Posted by SueTLC

USA Today has a preview of the new trailer for Harry Potter and the
Half-Blood Prince
will be released tomorrow night at 9:00 pm (Eastern).
The paper reports this trailer will also be showing in movie theaters
on May 1st before Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Director David Yates is quoted as saying:

“Once you’re hooked into these stories, it’s really difficult to let
go,” director David Yates says. “The audience has grown up with these
characters. I think that gives them a very special relationship. I
can’t think of any other movie franchise that has had that. They
started out at 10 or 11, and now they’re 18 and 19.”

You can also see the new photos now here in our galleries, including a cursed Katie Bell hovering in the air, due to the necklace, Dumbledore waiting in the train station (note the sign behind him) another of Severus Snape by a burning Hagrid’s Hut, Fenrir Greyback the Werewolf, grabbing a victim, a closeup of the Dark Mark over Hogwarts, and a dramatic shot of a crazed Bellatrix casting a spell in the Great Hall.

I thought that was one of the creepiest parts of HBP and it looks to be fantastic! So eerie and scary. This is supposed to be the final trailer I hear? Wish it would have come out a tad closer to the release since it is still 3 months away, but no worries. I'm sure we'll get other behind the scenes stuff or whatever.Avatar Image00AMR00 says: I think "Davied Yates" is right "The audience has grown up with the film characters" and we will grow up until the movie come out =) the picture of Dumbledore is the best of them.Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: Love the pic of Dumbledore...<3!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Looking forward to it.Avatar ImageVideoKID says: Looks goood :)Avatar Imagecghambright says: That's a weird movie to put it in front of...I kind of want to see it, but you would THINK WB would put the trailer in front of Wolverine or something like that.

It's not as great, seeing everything in tiny sections before watching the movie...Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: oh my! i like that it's nothing like i imagined. I love the one of katie bell, but she looks a bit like a scarecrow.Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: cghambright, the cinematography is responsible for Bruno Delbonnel. He worked on Amélía the french blockbuster.

It gave me shivers because it was SO good. I can't wait for this trailer! Ahhhhh! :)Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: LOL AT THE PICTURE BEHIND DUMBLEDORE!

(I'm sure it will) Luckily I have a laptop though so my parents shall never know xDAvatar ImageJustSuperMione says: The Katie picture made me squeel - Yates hasn't shyed away from that whole thing... The POV shot like that is brave!!! And the fact that they're coming back from the Hogsmead makes me excited... This looks ace and I know rationally it isn't alot but - RON AND HERMIONE ARE STANDING NEXT TO EACHOTHER!!!!Avatar Imageariana_dumbledore says: I love the sign behind Dumbledore ;) and the Katie Bell one is really cool, tooAvatar ImageDobbyrox says: i'm sooo excited for the trailer!!! It's kinda ironic that i hoped the trailer would be in front of The Chronicles of Narnia - that was a year ago. = PAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: The new images are all fantastic and certainly intriguing. I cannot wait to see the trailer later tonight; unless my expectations have been raised too high, it sounds as though it will be the best we have seen yet out of all of them.Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: This movie gets more and more exciting!Avatar Imagehermionegirl7 says: Oh Dumbledore, your so divinely magical... lol at that billboard behind him! xD I really love all the other pictures too.

I hope we get to see him fight a little in this one. I'm looking forward to the Harry chasing after Snape scene. :pAvatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: New and Final trailer. I cannot wait.Avatar ImageSweegirl says: woo.. The Dumbledore one is creepy...Avatar Imagecleber says: promising, as always.Avatar ImageHermione_Granger1987 says: I love the pictures!! I think the 6th movie is going to be the best one yet! Can't wait to see the new trailer!Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: Oh wow! These are all very nice!Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: theres four ppl (not counting the airborn katie) in that picture. who do you think it is? cuz it looks like they have dark hair...idk/ oh and the dumbledore one is kind of scary actually. imagine seeing someone like that in a deserted trainstation :OAvatar Imagesunlitdays says: oh, and do you notice that greyback's victim, doesnt it look like he/she has a bag on their head. wth is that?Avatar Imagesalame says: @ sunlitdays: I think the 4th person is Katie's friend? maybe?Avatar ImagePhlegm De La Coeur says: whoa...Fenrir scares me...a lot!!Avatar Imagelumosshimmy says: "Journey through time and space"? oh, no... that makes the story sound like some cheesy sci-fi thriller. To start the review in such a familiar way "we all know what happens in the books," you'd think the reporter would try to sell it better to those still in the dark about the story. Or at least mention the attention-getting moments from the trailer. Sorry, I'm just overly protective of these stories, and I feel like we HP fans do a better job of marketing via word-of-mouth than carefully worded reviews.... alas. Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: Nice pictures. I just wish we could click on them all instead of just the few they let us without having to go somewhere else to see them.Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: Woah. Freaky pics.... Dumbledore looks cool though:].Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: fenrir looks nothing like the way i pictured him!!!Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: Why on that movie why not a good movie that people are going to watchAvatar ImageDrome says: Oh, I love the pictures... Can't wait to see the trailer! :))Avatar ImageAvangelis says: thats an odd movie to put a hp trailer on. very odd. i'm not liking thatAvatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I saw the photo of Harry and Slughorn in the top right of the newspaper and I just had to buy it! I was so excited when I saw the new photos. The Katie photo is terrifying. I can't wait for this movie.Avatar ImageDanielleD says: amazing! the wait the killing me!Avatar Imagelisajean65 says: Can't wait! I am gettng so excited for this movie! Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: *excited*
