We have a collection of videos from the recent press launch and premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince today in London, England.

First up is this video montage shot on the rainy red carpet today, including new interview clips with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. You can also see footage of Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, David Bradley, Natalia Tena, Evanna Lynch and many more of the cast at the event in Leicester Square, London.

Even with the rain.Avatar Imageclabwag says: "Most people on the internet have too much time on their hands." Dan said it, not me. :P But yeah, I'd be bored out of my brain having to do press for a film of this size, because all you do is repeat yourself, really. No one asks drastically different questions. Avatar ImageMarine says: Great !Avatar ImageShalanarah says: Wow cool videos!!! Awesome! Loved it! Emma looks so beautiful. I like that it was raining!Avatar ImageShalanarah says: OMG I'm soooo JEALOUS of those who got to meet JK ROWLING!!!! Ah!!! WIsh i were ther!!

DAMN IT! Looked AMAZING though, The trio were on great form and Evana looked lovely, so did Bonnie (in fact all the cast looked great all dressed up for the premiere).Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: WOW! I had missed the orignal piece....we're here, in the US, and it' kinda hard to coordinate! (arrggghhh} One might say, we're "uncoordinated"! That piece was LOVELY! Dame Maggie is looking good, although a little tired! Ivanna looks striking! Everyone just looks great. OMG......7 more days!!!!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: i completely 4got 2 watch it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i was watching the whole michael jackson thing (it was on all the news channels and u couldnt get away from it) and then played sims 3. im sorryyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: i watched one thing then had 2 watch all these other ones!!!Avatar ImageThe Stew says: I like seeing Daniel, unlike most "superstars", joking with the camera and other actors while he is on the red carpet. Adds a whole lot a fun to the day...we need to see that more often at premiers. I know that he has personally said that how he acts on the carpet is not how he acts alone but it's still refreshing.Avatar ImagetaystarHP says: OMG I really wish I was there. Iwanted to be just a screaming fan if nothing else and of course trying to push my was to the front to see them and get an autograph!!Avatar ImageTamyris says: There should be a premiere in all the countries where Harry Potter is a massive success.Brazilian fans are completely left out! Several fans would love to be there in London but can´t and that´s truly unfair. Harry Potter is Harry Potter bc of Jo Rowling,WB and especially... THE FANS. Ok,ok. We still have two more premieres ahead of us. Thank God DH was splitted in two.That way I have more time to save money and go to London!Avatar ImageTamyris says: Jooooooo I love you sooooooo!!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Ah this is great !
