Check it out! The new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which is being aired in Japan, is now online here via YouTube. Enjoy!

UPDATE: Thanks to our hardworking crew, we now have the screencaps here in our image galleries!

Please note: This video contains Japanese subtitles and announcer, but you can also distinctly hear new dialogue in English from Dumbledore, Hermione and especially Snape as he sneers "How grand it must be to be the chosen one."

Thanks so much to for the heads up!

Please WB, can we have an English version in hd? The Japanese voice-over is sooo annoying. Other than that it seems like a good trailer. I think I like the last trailer better. It was more epic.

It was good, but I like the other one better, cause it has the awesome music

I love hearing all the dialog with this one. It gives me great hope that this is truly going to be an enjoyable movie. And wow, that was the closest we’ve seen the actual H/G kiss—I wonder why they didn’t just show us the whole thing! Any way. Very cool—loved the new footage and dialog, both.

Thank you for alerting us about this! This trailer is certainly spectacular and I cannot wait for Warner Brothers to (hopefully) give us an official one!

Oh my! I loved this trailer, naturally, but it was somewhat irritating that we had to hear two languages at once. I was thinking about waiting until an english version came out, but I just couldn’t wait. :) I loved it though, regardless. I’m just so worried that the movie is going to be screwed up. :( I just finished re-reading HBP and I started to realize how much of it most likely be able to fit into the film. It is so depressing.

I love the Japanese :) And the Dumbeldore Joke is very funny and nicely delivered, though not in the book. But we have to accept all the missing Jo dialogue and enjoy the new Kloves …
