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!

Question: What about Dumbledore’s “blackened hand”?

FINALLY! POSTERS! I can’t wait for HBP even though I’m probably hoping for too much. Anywho, I like the harry one, the dumbledore, but what the hell? I don’t get that t-shirt.Doesn’t seem very HP to me…weird.

YAAAAAY!!! I’ve been waiting forever for these posters! As soon as I saw this news story, I called my theatre to see if we got it yet, but my manager said no. :( But I will be obtaining them as soon as possible! They look AMAZING!

I’m actually not crazy about the posters. I like the first one, but I don’t like the diagonal of the other two. I do like the DD picture in the third one, but the second picture hardly even looks like Harry/Daniel Radcliffe. Plus I want to see Ron and Hermione :)

And I don’t get the shirt thing everyone’s talking about. It looks like a normal shirt to me…

Sorry for the double post, but question: Why are both of Dumbledore’s hands normal-looking? Isn’t one supposed to be, like, dead?

Hmm… what is that on his shirt? I mean, it can’t be a reflection like on his glasses, lol! but what IS it? Anyways, awesome that we are getting new promotional stuff! I hope more comes soon, but that it isn’t full scenes like with the last movies. I can’t stop myself from watching them, but afterwards it’s a horrible guilty feeling, being spoiled like that! :-P

I agree with most, the side writing looks really good. The posters took a while to come out, maybe wb forgot about it and did a last minute photoshop with Harry’s shirt!
