This full length trailer for the sixth Harry Potter film is a dramatic serious trailer, full of new music, stunning new footage, most notably Snape whispering "It's Over."New are dramatic scenes in the cave, new dialogue from Dumbledore on how he can not destroy it by himself, and Lupin speaks about a mission given to Draco Malfoy. There are new shots of Ginny reaching out to Harry saying "take my hand," and then, they hold hands. Also new are shots of the Quidditch stadium, a close up of the Dark Mark, Hermione smacking Ron on the shoulder with her book in the Great Hall, stunned students standing at the bottom of the tower, Draco, Harry and Sectumsempra fight in the bathroom, a cursed Katie Bell hanging in the snowy air, much to the horror of the Trio, new shots of the creeping crawling Inferi, Draco wavering on the Tower saying "I have to do this," new footage of the Death Eater attack on the Bridge in London and much much more.

It is a very good trailer. I think it will be my favorite movie so far.

I only regret that they cannot keep Rowling’s ideas intact. I’m not saying keep every scene, but more that they keep her message. In the movie, Dumbledore says, " Your the chosen one, Harry…you have no choice." While I think he actually said those words, there was a lot more nuance in the book, as Dumbledore is all about choices. In the book, he says that Harry and Voldemort must meet, but not because of the prophecy, and then he demonstrates how love is what will motivate Harry, not some prophecy. I know it’s hard to keep that kind of nuance and dialogue in a movie like this, but it makes me a little sad that people who will never read the books will miss out on the real depth of the books.

Oh well. It was a good trailer. It will be fun to have a Harry Potter event to go to again.

omg. this is brilliant. I’m so f-ing excited! I actually got a little teary-eyed because it all looks so good. I know there are things WB had to do, but i think they may be for the best for people who haven’t seen the movie… anyway. * will proceed to watch this over and over and over* AMAZINGGGGGG!!!!!!

Draco saying “I have to do this” made me sympathize for him. Although I am not really an H/G shipper, I liked them holding hands as a genuine show of affection.
