New Half-Blood Prince Trailer to Show in Theaters before Ghosts of Girlfriends Past May 1st

USA Today has a preview of the new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released tomorrow night at 9:00 pm (Eastern). The paper reports this trailer will also be showing in movie theaters on May 1st before Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Director David Yates is quoted as saying:

"Once you're hooked into these stories, it's really difficult to let go," director David Yates says. "The audience has grown up with these characters. I think that gives them a very special relationship. I can't think of any other movie franchise that has had that. They started out at 10 or 11, and now they're 18 and 19."

You can also see the new photos now here in our galleries, including a cursed Katie Bell hovering in the air, due to the necklace, Dumbledore waiting in the train station (note the sign behind him) another of Severus Snape by a burning Hagrid's Hut, Fenrir Greyback the Werewolf, grabbing a victim, a closeup of the Dark Mark over Hogwarts, and a dramatic shot of a crazed Bellatrix casting a spell in the Great Hall.

I’m almost afraid I’ll get HBP overload before the movie. The Katie Bell and Diagon Alley pics are both scary. LOVE the Dumbledore one! Soo funny

Woah, love the Diagon Alley one. The Dumbledore one in a subway station is kind of bothering me . . . Katie Bell one looks scary!!! The Snape one looks good. And the Bellatrix one looks crazy!
By the time HBP comes out, we will probably have seen enough pictures and trailers to have seen the whole entire movie lol :)

Love the pictures! Hate at&t for making such long ads. I’m especially excited for Greyback, I feel like they got him just right. I really don’t like Matthew McConaughey, but I always love seeing the trailers on the big screen- hmmm- compromise, compromise

Before Ghosts of the Girlfriends Past? Who is going to watch that movie?! They should’ve waited until Terminator or X-Men to release the official trailer!

I really like the picture of Dumbledore at the train station! I remember really looking forward to seeing him walking down the streets in his robes to pick up Harry… but now, having them at the station has grown on me! It should be pretty funny! =D
