As promised, MTV has now released their Summer Movie Preview of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, including 4 new video interviews with actress Emma Watson and actor Dan Radcliffe. In the videos, Emma discusses her character of Hermione Granger and the emotions when dealing with Ron and his new girlfriend. Dan Radcliffe delves in a bit more on Harry Potter and the character of Snape in HBP, played by Alan Rickman.

Also at this link, MTV has posted a new interview with producer David Heyman, where he talks the casting of Slughorn, played by Oscar winning actor Jim Broadbent. “He was absolutely our first choice,” Heyman recalled. “You look at Jim’s eyes, and you can read so much into them.”
What there also is besides great drama is great humor and great
humanity,” he said. According to Heyman, nailing Slughorn’s casting was
crucial to balancing out those dimensions in the sixth movie.”We wanted Slughorn to be a source of humor,” the producer
said. “You wanted a character who had airs of grandeur but at the same
time was really sympathetic and tragic.”

You just start watching and they are over. Oh well, we did hear a sentence or two. I did like what Dan said about having to project emotions with so little screentime between him and Snape.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: coolAvatar ImageDaphne Blake says: Boo! Hiss! Doesn't view in the UK! Wait a sec... yes I'm about to have a tantrum!Avatar ImageMatea says: aaaaaaaaaaaaaa! so sweet! I am dying over here! want.HBP.movie.now.right.now!!!!Avatar ImageNessieB says: ARGH! How annoying. You'd think that you'd be able to see them in the UK - afterall that's where the books are set AND where it's being filmed. grrrrrr.......Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: the third video doesn't work...mmh...Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: the third video doesn't work...mmh...Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: the third video doesn't work...mmh...Avatar Imagekbicprez says: Dan Radcliffe never fails to impress me. He's always so insightful and interesting in interviews. I think I've fallen in love.Avatar ImageethanHP says: I agree KB Prez! Really liked the interview, although I wish they would be longer. Btw, I'm from Europe and I can watch them so maybe the problem is a lot of people are trying to watch it at the same time?Avatar Imagemoglet says: Oh I'm so frustrated with not being able to watch them in the UK, can someone do a transcript for us? Please please please...Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Oh! the videos are soooo short! Dan and Emma are great (as they always are))))!Avatar Imagedecarus says: There has to be something wrong on their end for the third one not working. Avatar Imagesaffran says: I`m from Finland and I can see the videos but the sound is so bad it´s hard to hear what they are saying.Avatar Imagebadger666 says: I want more.Avatar Imagekatem4 says: Darn, won't play in Canada. I was all excited to come home and watch this, too.Avatar Imageharrypotterfan5324 says: LOVE IT!!!! dan is SO hotAvatar Imagecghambright says: I can't wait to see this movie! It kind of sucks that we can't see video 3, but the others were great! I think the "better keeper" Emma is referring to is Cormac MacLaggen...I can't wait to see him in the movie, the actor that plays him is really sexy!!! And I think most people picked up on the fact that Snape and Harry hate each other in movie 1. It's kind of obvious, but it's nice to know that they continued that in movie 6. Avatar Imagefriendofblob says: LOVE IT! ^_^Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: That didn't really tell us too much. . . I just hope they get this movie right! :/Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: thats great!!Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: thats great!!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: I couldn't see all the videos! :(Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Great to hear more from them. Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Skipped the one vid, but the rest worked great! :DAvatar Imagea1000wtp says: Yea why does it have to be the kissing one that we dont get to see!Avatar Imagedynagirldangit says: I couldn't watch the third one either.Avatar Imagegaladriel12 says: I am confused. I always was under the impression that Miss Watson has read the book? "Hermione might realize that she might have some feelings for Ron" ????? She realized that at the latest in GoF, Book AND Movie. And McLaggen is not a better keeper than Ron. That was the whole point really. Oh, well. Avatar Imagebecmajec says: where's rupey g??!Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: It won't work for me (I'm in England). If somebody reads this and knows they're on youtube, can they owl me please?! :DAvatar Imagebutterbeer bottle says: I'm in Australia and some of these are working for me. For those of you that can't see the videos the one with Emma is bascially her explaining the how she realises she likes Ron, who then goes out with Lavender, and she mentioned that "it was nice to play a comedy role, because in the last one I had to be so concerned," those weren't her exact lines, but it was basically what she said.Avatar ImageThe Silver Doe music says: Looks cool, I can't wait for the movie!Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: in the video titled "summer blockbuster" you can see a snap shot of what I think is the scene of when slughorn and dumbledore are repairing his home. pretty cool i think!Avatar Imagemuzic823 says: I couldn't watch the Harry talking about kissing video :( It kept transferring me to the next clip. I liked the other ones though! :)Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: I really liked these. Something new to talk about. I really like that Emma is going to be able to stretch her acting skills in this one, being more comedic that worried and dramatic all the time. I really enjoyed what Dan had to say about Harry and Snape. He is really concerned about making sure that the tention between them is addressed in so little time.Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: I really liked these. Something new to talk about.
