Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: that was so awesome!!!Avatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: It was a little fast paced for me, but some of the new footage was so cool!Avatar Imagesupergirlinfrance says: The thing with the waitress NOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagebudgie says: Getting closer to the real thing! YAY!!!Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: I rather enjoyed itAvatar ImageHeartOfSlytherin says: lol did anyone else find Slughorn's expression funny... ^_^Avatar Imagejenvomitvos says: yessssssssss!Avatar Imageascendancy33 says: I LOVVVVEEDDDDDD IT!!!! A HILARIOUS COMMERCIAL.....CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE MOVIE, I WANT IT NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!Avatar ImageDrome says: YES!!!Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: Nice. ROMANTIC!!!!Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: WAAAAA!!! Hospital wing scenes are amazing! Steve Kloves stays so close to the book. I hate the breathe thingy though, i'll just shut my eyes through that. HAHA! CANNOT wait, bring on July 15th!! Avatar ImageDrome says: Did you see Severus when he raised his other eyebrow? xDAvatar ImageT-Vey says: FINALLY we got a couple seconds of Jessie Cave!!! Squee! she was great! Could that last shot be them watching the Ron/Lavender kiss??Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: The ad is a bit choppy, but it still reveals the fun side of the movie. Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: Now we need it in HDAvatar Imageane_drew says: I'm not so sure I'm liking where they took the whole Hermione-Ron-Lavander triangle. :( Harry flirting...a wee bit out of character methinks. Plus, what's the deal with reading the Daily Prophet in a muggle underground? A bit of a give away isn't it? What if someone saw the moving pictures? Tsk tsk tskAvatar Imagesalame says: Nice to see them showing the romantic side of the movie. Though i think Harry/Ginny deserved a bit more time (and this is coming from a Ron/Hermione shipper). Love Jessie Cave as Lavender, everybody is gonna hate her ;) Also love the scene where you see Hermione smiling at Ron when he's playing Quidditch, so cute... SQUEEEEAvatar Imagesunlitdays says: ug. sorry but that was bad. i loved all the bits of footage, but it was just ug. it was so fast paced and i dont want the non hp fans who see this to think harry potter is just now romance stuff. ya know? i mean the romance parts are my favorites, but still. ya know?Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: oh idk now. all the clips were great, but i didnt like how choppy it was. OH JUST GIVE US THE MOVIE ALREADY!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageAnna Luiza says: When Harry says "She´s brilliant but we´re just friends" did he mean Ginny or Hermione?? Could be both. Probably Ginny, because of when he didn´t want to admit his feelings because of Ron. Mmm..I suppose Dumbly knows Harry and Hermione have always been friends (unlike some people.aham). But maybe he did mean it, him and hermione are just friends. Cos it might be when they were hanging out while Ron was...busy with Lavender.Avatar Imageericaeeks says: Whee! I can't wait! Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I LOVVVVVVVVVVVEEE it! I absolutely love the hospital scene. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageWhitzard says: "i happen to be his..." ¿love? ¿sweetheart? ¿love? Why she chose "friend"?! She get scared by the public (Snape, Slugy Dumbledore, Ginny and i think harry is there too xD)Avatar Imageiampadfoot says: bleh lets get some cool, scary, awesome, dark ads with harry and dumbledore that aren't about love and humor Avatar ImageAJWC1 says: I think that Dumbledore is inquiring about Hermione, and Harry is like, no they're just friends. But, just in the trailer, they are showing Ginny footage. I think Hermione chose friend, cause I think at that point she's not sure what they are. Of course, they are friends, but after all those years and experiences and how she's feeling about them now, they are "more," but she doesn't quite have a word for it.Avatar ImageFereverto says: Hmmm, Harry is truly out of character with the waitress. Oh well, they change a lot of stuff for the movies.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I happen to be his... Friend!! AH I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!! phew calm it CiaraAvatar Imageblind_pilot says: I think it's interesting how they focused more in the romantic, funny side. Now I just want to see a more intense one! :D It was awesome though. :)Avatar Imagedingy0413 says: Wow, I can't believe we just saw that footage! I for sure thought we would have to wait til the movie for those scenes. Oh well, I LOVED it!!! Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Brilliant!!!!Avatar Imageele0206 says: TOTALLY out of charachter! Harry flirting like a freak...not BOOK'S Harry! I agree with Fereverto, they change a lot in the movies. I wouldn't mind much if they changed the scenes or cut something, but I feel like the charachters are not like the book's ones. Especially Harry and Hermione. Anyway, I must learn not to have high expectations and just watch that movie, knowing that it won't change anything if I don't like how they did it.Avatar Imageele0206 says: TOTALLY out of charachter! Harry flirting like a freak...not BOOK'S Harry! I agree with Fereverto, they change a lot in the movies. I wouldn't mind much if they changed the scenes or cut something, but I feel like the charachters are not like the book's ones. Especially Harry and Hermione. Anyway, I must learn not to have high expectations and just watch that movie, knowing that anything will change if I don't like how they did the film. I still know that, even if I'm disappointed by the film, the book is still there, ready to be reread. Want to discuss this with me? Add me, you'll have a new friend and you'll make points.Avatar Imageele0206 says: Oh, but I loved the "I happen to be his.......*silence*.............friend". Soooo wishing she said "love of his life".Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: I believe this must be the worst trailer/video of the movie. Just no.Avatar Imagekbicprez says: "She´s brilliant but we´re just friends". Harry was talking about Hermione at the time.Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: OMG OMG OMG OMG !! Ron and Harry laughing against the corridor wall. *diesAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: yessssssAvatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: GAAAAASSPPPPP!!!! Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: It's not very satisfying, but it's still exciting!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: that commercial was awesome! even more new stuff! :)Avatar ImageSareptheRavenclaw says: Not a single mention of the Chosen One. Yay!Avatar ImageMoldywort17 says: A little bit too fast, but still a nice ad. I just wish they'd hurry up and put out the movie. :(Avatar Imageharrypotterfan5324 says: i personally didnt really like that was....welll it could have been betterAvatar ImageBellatricksthestrange says: The first time I played it, it had no sound and was playing as if it was fast forwarded. I was really annoyed that I got tricked into watching that... but then I tried playing it again and it worked, lol! Duhhh. Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: that was pretty awesome yayaya for tv spots it means it's really comeing ahhh and in just over two months omgAvatar Imagecallicott3 says: It rocks! I'm so glad we have Leaky! I don't have TV, and I never would have seen it!!!!! Thanks, Honourary Weasley, and Leaky!!!!Avatar Imagesupergirlinfrance says: Ron at the beging laughing with harry , So hot !Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: This is pretty cool, but I haven't watched it with sound yet... I hope it will be better with sound!! 68 days! Do you think we can wait any longer!Avatar Imagehepburn says: Yay ! Thanksss! :DAvatar ImageGryfindorprincess09 says: It was Awesome!!!!Avatar Imagehalf-blood-queen says: Looks like a funny romantic comedy to me, but this is Harry Potter and not just some small-budget movie, and I really hope it's not completely dominated by romance, even if I love the romance(which I do) but I prefer the darker themes of harry Potter, but a bit light-hearted comedy in between is always great. HBP will be a very interesting movie.Avatar Imagelunaspec_gimmy says: Actually didn't like it, just makes it look like a romance movie. >.<Avatar Imagesalame says: I don't think this is a real "trailer" though. So don't freak out yet! Most of the real trailers have been very dark and focused on that (Dumbledore/Harry/Draco etc) and the action. I think this could maybe be seen as a "preview" and not really a trailer. It just shows a different part of the movie. I'm really not affraid of this being all romance. So i like this... hopefully there will be enough of both romance and darkness. It will balance out, right?Avatar Imagegrimnakjarman says: that was awesome Avatar ImageAJWC1 says: Oh gosh!!! The book had the darkness AND the romance. The trailers are thematic; therefore, you'll see some about darkness and some about the romance. I like BOTH aspects of the book/movie. Therefore, I think that the reviews will be based on what the particular individual wants. There have been so many times that I wanted to leave Harry and the dark stuff and follow Ron and Hermione. This time I get to do it darn it!!!! Anyway, in my mind, Hermione says..."and I'm his.....WOMAN!!!" That's right Hermione, claim your man!!! Hehehehehe...Avatar ImageDanielleD says: love it!Avatar Imagedragonsmaidan says: That is fantastic. I love the romance of HBP.Avatar ImageLavendergirl says: This commercial seems to focus more on the romance aspect of the movie... I can't say I loved it, but it was pretty interesting. Oh I can't wait for the actually movie!Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: haha, funnyAvatar Imagephantomdave79 says: as someone stated earlier, this shows another side of the movie. TV spots usually focus on one side of the movie. I just like seeing some new footage. Now how about the whole movie?Avatar ImagePotterYay says: LOL, Slughorn's expression! i can tell Jim Broadbent is gonna be great (:Avatar Imagelifa says: I just watched it, I can't wait for the movie to be released!Avatar Imagebutterbeer bottle says: That was AWESOME!!!!!!! Except what the hell was with the waitress, because I really don't like that. But that aside, it was really good.Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: that was AWESOME!!Avatar ImageNatalie says: I didn't like the editing...And I don't think that the 6th book is so happy.... Anyway it was just one of the many themes of HPB I hope... And I really hope that David Yates doesn't use a steady camera all the time... We need some movement like in POA with Quaron... PS. I still think that this film is going to be really faithful to the feeling of the book...Avatar ImageWeasleyRavenclaw says: looks like a really bad chic-flic type movie....hope it is better...although the acting WAS good :PAvatar ImageWicked_Lady says: Lol! You guys are acting like this is the first trailer you've seen of the movie. It's not even a trailer, it's a commercial that just happens to focus on the romance of the book. It will not be the only commercial, I'm sure there will be many more that focus on the darkness, Harry/Draco, Harry/Dumbledore aspects of the book. I personally really like it. It looks great! I can't wait to see the movie. Avatar Imagethe_spectacle says: Love it how Harry nervously touches his glasses. So cute.Avatar ImageAugury Feather says: LAVENDAR!!!! she was brilliant! so happy with the choice! glad we got to see more of her... ARGHSSKHdfka I am getting so excited! They seem to be marketing the film from many different angles.. Kid's Movie Romantic Comedy Thriller/Mystery Drama/Tragedy loving it! because the book was all these things and more!Avatar ImageNyx says: Thanks H.W and Leaky for brightening up what has been a really rubbish day for me. I agree with the comments about the waitress thing... cringeworthy. But I liked slughorn and loved Snape (as always) in the background with his 'bulldog chewing a wasp' expression. Thanks again Honorary Weasley, muchos kudos darling.Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: NO, NO, NO, waitress! What the? Okay, don't like this at all! Sorry, WB, HBP is a little dark- it doesn't have to be all about romance. Oh my gosh, I'm really annoyed now!Avatar Imagesimplycyn says: i wish they would promote the heck out of this. i haven't even seen it on tv yet.Avatar ImageErinM says: {gasp} 68 more days! Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: "I’m not so sure I’m liking where they took the whole Hermione-Ron-Lavander triangle. :( " They haven't taken the Hermione-Ron-Lavender triangle anywhere. It's still at it's original destination, man.Avatar Imageholey_saint_george says: I hadn't seen this!! It was really, amazingly funny, though! Ughhh... I can't wait!!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: @ Mr. Brightside Sorry, but you're just crazy. JUST YES!Avatar Imageboona says: of course, I am in love with Ron's smileAvatar Imagecheekysnake09 says: wow that flew by so fast! i have to watch it again. :)Avatar ImageJersey says: CoolAvatar ImageLisee_Lu says: That was very squeeful. VERY SQUEEFUL!Avatar ImageVeganMudblood says: I've watched it several times now, and tried to like it, but can't. It came across too cutesy and cheesy. Maybe it will be less awkward when it's in the film, and in context? I hope so. Won’t be looking forward to seeing this particular TV spot in the coming weeks…Avatar ImagemOOn-stArs-sUn says: What the heck? I'm more than a little disappointed. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but if people only saw this and none of the other amazing trailers, then they would think the movie is only about romance. This movie has a dark side as well, and they didn't even show a little clip of it. . . .Avatar Imageharrywillnotdie says: I like the Hermione/Lav/Ron triangle... but Harry hitting on the waitress while reading the Daily Prophet is out-of-character and just weird. I know the gang is getting older and they're trying to show that, but Harry wouldn't do that.Avatar Imageccking says: I hated it ... Too romance filled they're almost focusing on it while it's only Supposed to be a sub-plot.Avatar ImageWinter_Sonata says: I think that was great!! Well, excluding the part were Hermione smacks him on the head for the millionth time, it fascinated me! Oh! And I bet the soundtrack is going to be one of the best. I loved Prisoner o Azkaban's soundtrack, so I'm expecting to listen to something good on HBP as well. Avatar ImageRosalie says: I like the romance stuff, so I found this tv spot entertaining. The only thing I didn't like was the waitress bit, that seemed out of character for Harry.Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: I couldn't hear any of the sound but otherwise, cool! I want to see everything. Avatar ImageTegaaan says: I thought it was pretty good :) i kinda didnt want to watch it cos i feel the hospital was one of the scenes we hadnt seen much of and i wanted to be suprised, but i was pretty happy with it :) lavender was funny, happy with the choice of her :) Avatar Imagevandy says: Harry flirting?? thats not so Harry-ish..Anyway, they are not actually showing much of Half Blood Prince's book.But by the look of the commercial the move look coolAvatar Imagemouse68 says: For the people complaining about this TV spot being "all about romance", two points. 1. It's a single TV spot focusing on one part of the movie, it's not supposed to be representative of the entire movie, just one part of the story, just like one of the early trailers focused on only the young Voldemort storyline. 2. This TV spot played on the CW, a TV network aimed at the younger audience, particularly airing shows that younger females watch. This spot was perfectly aimed at an audience that would be interested in the romantic side of the story. It's called target marketing. As for Harry flirting - this will take up less than a minute of the movie - stop stressing over this one little tiny thing, it's not a major part of the film! Avatar ImageMini_Moose says: Awesome! I really enjoyed it! Definitely shows the romantic side to the movie! :)Avatar ImageHermione_Granger1987 says: It was a bit fast paced for me but I liked it! Especially the hospital scene!! But, Harry flirting with a waitress.? I didn’t like that. Completely out of character..Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: That was cool. Quite funny. I think this is going to be the best film yet, hopefully anyway. :) Can't believe it's a PG though. They must have cut quite a lot for it to be changed to that??! :/Avatar ImageMatea says: OH MY DEAR HBP!!! this was so awesome I can't even explain!!! I also didn't like Harry/waitress thing,so not HP,and so like Twilight and Edward and waitress,remember?so I don't like it. and I also don't like Dumbledore asking Harry questions about his love but everything with Ron/Hermione/Lav just wow!!!! Emma is brilliant and I feel so proud. the look and the grin she has during Rons tryout-I'm melting :) and the scene in the hospital wing-squeeeee!!!! did you catch Lavender leaning on Ron-thats probably when he mumbles H-E-R-M-I-O-N-E.weeeee. I just can't wait anymore.its driving me crazy :DAvatar Imageloony_slytherin says: Coolio!Avatar Imageloony_slytherin says: Sooooo coool!!!!Avatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: Loved it! =D Hermoine beats Lavander any day! Loved Dumbledore's comments!Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Cool! I like it! :DAvatar ImageAng says: Ooooooh!!! I'm getting so excited for the film now!!! Hurry up July!!!Avatar Imageblackcatwitch says: Well, I for one have liked all the trailers so far. Everyone, from actors to director have been talking about the romance and the funny parts in this one. And the R-rating pretty much comfirm this as well. So dont be surpriced if HBP-the movie is less darker you thought it would.. Avatar Imagebecmajec says: screen caps?Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: OH MY GOSH!!! WOW!! Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: oh lol that was funny!!! it was soooo funny at 0:06, harry was checking his breath. lol!! randomness!Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: OH MY GOSH!!! WOW!! Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: WOW!! the movie is soo gonna be the HIT this year! its so awesome! even in the trailers and pre-sceens show a very nice story! BRAVO! :D hahaAvatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: WOW!! the movie is soo gonna be the HIT this year! its so awesome! even in the trailers and pre-sceens show a very nice story! BRAVO! :D hahaAvatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: Some of the new footage are sooooo cool!!!! And the thing with the waitress??!! NOOOOO XDAvatar Imageane_drew says: I think it would have made a better impact if Hermione said "friends" proudly. It would have meant that she considered their (Hers and Ron's) friendship above Lavander's and Ron's...err...relationship. In this clip, it just kinda showed her being all possessive and pathetic. :(Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: Everyone please stop complaining! the first three films (which happen to be the best) are light all the way through until the very end, and they were rated PG. This one is also rated PG! This one will be amazing, just like the first three. No, it won't be dark allllll the way through, but if you think it should.... go back and read Half-Blood Prince again, it's not dark at all! It focuses on Ron and Hermione and Quiddich, and the Half-Blood Prince book that Harry sees to not be dark at all (with dumbledore's lessons at the side). Yeah, the book has very dark bits in it, but STOP complaining about all the romance! They have said this will be the funniest film yet, and thats what makes Harry Potter so beautiful.Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: Thanks so much! The hospital wing scenes are good, the random waitress bit - eh, I can live through it. Everything else was really good though!Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: Sorry i just read that through and i sounded so stupid haha! I'm just really trying to make this one the best in my opinion. I mean it has the cinematographer from Amelie, which is like my faveourite foreign film ever! I just want it to be really funny and light until that devastating ending. Coz i think thats what made me cry so hard, that i didn't expect such darkness at the end.Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: EVERYBODY is saying that waitress scene is awful. Maybe David Yates will see these comments and Leaky can tell him to cut it? Haha. It's really crap, and soo un-Harry ish. He's supposed to be 16! and shes like 23! We should start a petition called "get rid of cheesy breathe check" add me and leave a comment on my parchment and with your encouragement i'll email Leaky. I'm not doing it by myself though!Avatar Imagehp29 says: Sweet :) i like it Avatar Imagerebel says: i think it was a cool commercial...but i hope that they put out another one that is more serious Avatar Imageiamrodefer22 says: I think it could have used a little more action. It was pretty funny and is making me pretty excited that it will be here soon!!Avatar Imagecghambright says: It's great!! I LOVE IT!!! Harry flirting with the muggle waitress equals classic! I love Hermione and Lavender's little fight over Ron. lmao...but ALL know who the winner will be. And Dumbledore's line at the end is PERFECT! It's such a Dumbledore-ish line! Loved it!Avatar Imagespazgirl13 says: wow looks amazing Avatar ImageFresca says: "Ah to be Young, and feel Love's keen sting" Rather poignant, that comment from Dumbledore, as he was young once too and inlove with a man who betrayed him.Avatar ImageNiphai says: OMG, this trailer is HILARIOUS. Love Lavender/Hermione and Harry/Waitress xDAvatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: This makes me want to see it even more nowAvatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Infact it kind of makes me forgive them for delaying the film as it's beginning to look extremely well finished.Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: I liked it.... The other ones were better, but it was different showing the romance side... Haha loved the "And I'm his (pause) friend." Can't wait for the movie!Avatar Imageavrenim says: yay! i'm so excited. that was awesome!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: That commercial was just brilliant! I cannot wait to enjoy all the romantic crack in this movie.Avatar Imagewhaysiangirl13 says: yes!! can't wait til the movie comes out!! (so excited i am jumping up and down)Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: well done weasley =DAvatar Imageavrenegade says: this looks pretty funny, but whos the black lady at the restrauntAvatar Imageavrenegade says: this looks pretty funny, but whos the black lady at the restrauntAvatar Imageblackhair says: why the bloody hell Mr.Yates has made Harry Behave like a Play Boy with Muggle Girl Waitress.This is nonsense i just hope some senses prevails and he removes that Scene of Harry flirting with the Waitress i hate that. Avatar Imageblackhair says: Hermione and Lavender's Conversation will be Interesting but i didn't understand y would they do that in front of Headmaster and few senior member of the staffs?? But i would be excited watching them fight over Ron And Harry's Reaction wen Dumbeldore asks him abt his activities outside schoolAvatar Imagelisajean65 says: Awesome!Avatar ImageKara000 says: This is amazing! Its so awesomeAvatar ImageiLoveDolores says: i cant wait till we start getting the ads in Australia =D i love seeing them on tv, they make me squee!!Avatar Imageasne says: i am disappointed. i i disliked the part where dumbledore is talking with harry about ginny and where dumbledore, slughorn and snape witness the lavender/ron scene. it is so teen-comedy like!! i really hope that there wont be more this kind of comedy.. Avatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: I'll have to watch this at home. Can't wait.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: lol you can tell it was a commercial for the cw, it kinda caught me off guard but it was cuteAvatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: That was awesome! :DAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool! I liked Lavender and Hermione. I HATED the waitress bit, though. Terrible. Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: It was neat to see a bit more than we haven't seen yet, but the last trailer is still my absolute favorite. Avatar Imageiconshero says: Oh to be young and feel loves keen sting......roflAvatar ImageAvangelis says: hermione should have said "trick i happen to be the future mother of his children!"Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: "I happen to be his" *silence* "Friend" HAHAAH ! OmG that was made of awesome!Avatar ImageCourtneyPotter says: it was ok. they centered the whole thing around the boys realationships and i didnt get the feel it was a "harry potter" movie. but it was funny. i guess i just liked the theater ones better.Avatar ImageJanitorOfAzkaban says: DUMBLEDORE: Oh to be young, and to feel love's keen sting! SNAPE: Uh... remind me again, why haven't I AK-ed you yet? Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: It went waaaay too fast, but it looked cute anyway. :-D
