First Posters for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Released

The first posters posters for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
have now been officially released. The first one (courtesy Yahoo) shows a closeup of Harry, with Dumbledore reflected in his glasses. A second one from MSN, seen here in our galleries, shows more of Harry, pointing his wand (and sporting a most curious shirt). The third new poster, here in our galleries as well, features Professor Dumbledore turning to look at something, and is without his hat.
Thanks to Bekki and everyone who emailed!
Wow Love them !!
Ooh! I love the glasses one!! No idea whats on Harry’s shirt though..
Those are amazing posters but the “HP6” on the first one seems a bit weird. STill amazing though.
Really neat posters. I like the first one extremely well!
Ohh, i like them. I like how they play with photos. The second one is the most intriguing, the image on top of his shirt is weird… i can’t help but think if it’s something like what YodatheHobbit mentioned.
These posters have a different feel than all the other previous movie posters. They are skewed at an angle and they are in action. It looks like it was a moment in the movie (inferi battle?) like Harry looks at Dumbledore (pic 1) and he sees Dumbledore battling something (pic 2) and then harry joins in the fight (pic 3)
I found it interesting that WB is focusing on different aspects of the movie. Like the Father son relationship with Harry and Dumbledore, and the new teacher Slughorn, and Harry being the chosen one. This is a much better advertising method instead of flashing a bazillion pictures like they did with OotP.
When’s this movie coming out again?
I love the closeup of Harry one! I don’t care much for the DD one but Harry pointing his wand is cool, even though his shirt is distracting. It’s cool the way the text is tilded. it kinda gives it a sense of action. But why do they always use blue? Ok, it does give it a misterious and dark look, but a change of color would be nice.
anything new about harry potter makes me think of how long there is to wait =[
But lovin’ these posters, my fave is the last one with dumbledore reflecting in harrys glases.
I’m kind of disappointed. I guess since we’re WAY overdue for a poster (according to the OotP timeline, we should have gotten one in November) I was hoping it would look more interesting. These posters ARE interesting, make no mistake, but I would have thought that, for the first poster, they would make it seem a bit more…mysterious. Like a silouette of Harry or Voldemort reaching out; these seem more like promotional banners you see hanging in a movie theatre.
Ah, well. At least it means I’ll be able to buy three t-shirts from Hot Topic any day now.
Oooh, I love them; they’re so dark. It looks like Harry has something weird on his shirt though: it looks like its reflecting something, which is impossible, obviously.
Wow, that’s a close up of Harry’s face if ever I saw one.
Hopefully the movie will be as exciting as they are trying to make the posters.
OK, I can’t stop staring. All I can see is a praying mantis crawling out of the Holy Grail, on Harry’s shirt…
