*Update: The trailer is now available for download here in our galleries.

Several pieces of news relating to trailers for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. First up, Portkey.it owled regarding the trailer that aired previously on Japanese television. A clean (no subtitles) and much clearer version of that trailer can be viewed here via Youtube.

Also, thanks to TLC readers Scott, Allen, Porkey.it, and UHP, who all emailed regarding updates to the British Board of Film Classification that now has listed what is presumably a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Given a 12 A rating, this trailer runs 2 minutes and 20 seconds in length. We do not know when this trailer will be released, more when we get it.

Avatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: AWESOME! SQUEE!!!Avatar ImageVideoKID says: Yay =)Avatar Imagepipkin3 says: Oh god, MORE trailers?? Give it a rest WB! I've avoided watching the Japanese one and won't watch the next one either. 4 trailers is enough for me thanks.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: Sweet i like this trailer. I want the movie to be a surprise when i see it but i just cant stop from watching these trailers. ha oh well im excited not to much longer now.Avatar ImageVideoKID says: That was AMAZING!! cant waitAvatar Imagebudgie says: I love the trailers!Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: Only one problem i just saw. One of the things Hermione says the most is that you cant apparate or disapperate in and out of Hogwarts but Harry and Dumbledore do it my guess when there leaving to the cave. I know he's the head master and all but just saying hermione always makes such a big deal in the books. Am i right. but i guess the walk to hogsmead would slow the story down.Avatar ImageNiphai says: I really love the trailer <3Avatar Imagesalame says: That's an awesome looking trailer. I love the Draco moments.. can't wait to see more of him. Horcruxalej: I have the same thing. I don't want to see too much of the film yet like i felt i did with OOTP. But it's too hard to resist the trailers.Avatar Imageqwientje says: YEAH!! that's soooo cool!! I just can't wait!! WOW!!!!!Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: wayy cool! wow so awesome!Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: @Horcruxalej, it is possible to apparate in Hogwarts if Dumbledore casts a certain spell. It was in the Half-Blood Prince during the apparation lessons. But I do agree with you that they did it to avoid boring walking sequences.Avatar ImageR-for-H says: AMAZING!! Loved every second!! I was at the cinemas on Saturday and I saw a Harry Potter trailer!! I was like to my boyfriend!! OMG!!! It's HARRY POTTER!!! It was amazing!!! XD And this one was too!!!Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: squeeeeee! i love trailersAvatar ImageVeganMudblood says: Yay! Love it! :DAvatar Imagebrentbrehony says: Looks killer can't wait!!! Peace~Big BAvatar Imagehufflepuff_86 says: At this rate, we'll have the whole movie by the end of May, but in two and a half minute bits! Sort of like a Build-Your-Own Harry Potter.Avatar ImageRhiannon7 says: Squeeeeee! 98 days. I am so excited about this movie. Have waited sooooo long! Avatar ImageJessLovesRon says: Fab trailer, I can't wait!Avatar Imageherpo says: it doesn't make any sense.I thought that HBP was PG rated,why on earth has this trailer a 12A rating?unless the rating in Britain is different(and stricter apparently)than in the US(which is also weird,because you know the MPAA)or unless the 12A means something completely different.what do you guys think?Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: was amazing, i admit :]. would like to see more new rupe scenes :].Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: forgot to add. im actually a litte nervous. with all these trailers, like hufflepuff86 said, will we basically have the movie? i dont want it to happen that way. i want the surprises and trust me. when you see these links on leaky its more than tempting to click them...Avatar Imagesplinch says: i liked the longer look at aparition, its closer to the book, not like the crazy smoke thing in ootp. which looked cool i admit, i also am seeing a trend in the trailers that sort of hint at dumbledores death (the cave), i know some sneek peek reviews said his death is treated like a side note, i really hope not.Avatar ImageeiVega says: I forgot about the Japanese trailer! This was great! I loved it. Awesome. I figured there would be another trailer closer to the release but I do agree it's starting to get overdone. They're starting to annoy me because it's the same footage edited in a different way. It's almost insulting now. A taunt of what we are still waiting for.Avatar Imageavrenim says: such a good trailer! but not enough ron!Avatar Imagepottercastfan says: YAY! I only watched the previous Japanese only one before!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: LOVE IT!!!! I can't wait!Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: Yay!Avatar ImageSally_Zaar says: SQUEE I am so excited for this film :DAvatar ImageMatea says: an awesome trailer. I wasn't so excited while waiting for OOTP. this is my fav book(next to DH of course) so this is sooo..argh...can't wait!and its going to be so much better than OOTP...these trailers promise a lot.Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Lol. I agree, not enough Rupert! But oh well. It was still a good trailer. I love the part where Arthur says "they do funny things to people" and Draco's in the bathroom. *sighs* Tom is so hot.Avatar ImageTheCrogePodge says: Sweeeet.Avatar ImageLinnyish says: Hmm it's been a while since I read the books, but does Dumbledore actually ever call Harry the 'Chosen' one? Just makes it sound like the gods have chosen him or something. There wasn't ever any choice about it if I remember rightly. I really haven't read it in ages though. Fabulous trailer :DAvatar ImageCrown Victoria says: wicked!Avatar Imagecghambright says: AWESOME!! It's sooo good!! I love the part with Teen Tom Riddle playing with his ring and the part when Snape is shooshing Harry looks so creepy...I wonder if in the movie Snape puts the freezing charm on Harry because that's what it looks like. I just love the whole thing! I really NEED to see this movie NOW!!! :D :)Avatar ImageFereverto says: I loved that trailer! Hermione looks so distressed. It must be over Lavender and Ron. The wait is such torment! AGGGHHHH!Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: A new trailer?? *crosses fingers*Avatar Imageamandrake says: I loved how it showed bellatrix and the death eaters burning down hagrids cabin!Avatar Imagebecmajec says: i like japan!Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: Hooray! Less than 100 days to go! (it seems so close, yet so far...)Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: WHOO HOO!Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: Yay!!!! It is so much better with out the Japanese talking above it! I could hear some of it. "A toast... to Hogwart's brightest and best!" I do not like the "shooshing" (?) of Harry from Snape! I hope it is not on the tower!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Much nicer than the dubbed version! I finally got to see one of the trailers in the theater when I saw He's Just Not That Into You on Tuesday.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am glad that there is a clearer version of the Japanese trailer to watch on my iPod! I will convert this YouTube video as soon as possible.Avatar Imageblind_pilot says: Woe, that was awesome! :D So excited for July!Avatar ImageLoSushi says: That was almost better than the American ones!Avatar ImageJersey says: By the time the movie releases we'll have already seen it piecemeal from all the trailers!Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: Wow....chills down my spine!Avatar ImageSarabi says: trailers ftw :)Avatar Imagebookishgal says: This just makes me more anxious to see it!Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Very cool trailer. I hope to see the other longer one soon. But......GAH! I want to see this movie already!!!Avatar ImageAccioSarah says: Wow! That was a lot more new footage then I expected... or at least more then I've seen yet. I'll be watching it again! And then again. =)Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: Some new clips and it makes it even harder to waitAvatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: OMG... I <3 this trailer....*-*Avatar ImageJustSuperMione says: Yes I noticed the apparation too - but for story and pacing it's better than using the brooms. I love the trailer - and just the bit at 1:24 where Ron and Harry are in their Quidditch things before the match made me SOOOO happy. At last cannon Ron and next to him Luna looking ace in her Lion hat!!!Avatar Imagenicole 313 says: Awesome trailer. But I'm worried that they have changed too much in the film. Is that Snape telling Harry to be quiet near the Astronomy Tower? And Dumbledore & Harry Apparating inside Hogwarts? Just seems like too much is changing and isn't true to the books. But, I can't wait to see the film, it looks great. Ignoring the annoying changes.Avatar ImageDrome says: OMG.. that's awesome! o__oAvatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: I love this new clean version of the Japanese trailer! Awesome! :DAvatar Imageele0206 says: a-w-e-s-o-m-eAvatar ImageChaseT says: what's with dumbledore saying "that was fun, most people vomit the first time"? Avatar Imagejonamos says: Thats AWESOME!! abit annoying that they are playing pretty much all of the film in the trailers months before its even released but oh well. and whats even more amazing.. I think someones told Michael Gambon what Dumbledores supposed to be like as he isnt shouting once in the entire trailer!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: Squeeeeeeeek. Love this trailer. Can't wait!!!!Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: i can't wait for the film!!!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Wow, another trailer!Avatar ImageSirEdwardsGuardian says: Must not watch trailers. Must stay away. Must not give into the temptation. MUST NOT!Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: omg can't believe we have another trailer and i am intrigued bout this new trailer that no one has seen yet. hope we get to see it soon. can't believe all these trailers that we are gettin. only 3 months tob go, well just ova but still squeeeeAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Awesome trailer!Avatar Imagestevenk12468 says: LOVE IT!!!Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: I am verrryyyy impressed with this trailer. VERRYYY impressed. I love Mr. Weasley's quote: "Dark times. they do funny things to people. They can bring them together, or tear them apart." Michael Gambon was pretty okay as Dumbledore. Except: "You're the chosen one, Harry. You must not fail." Okay, thanks Dumbledore- no presssure then.Avatar ImageMahayana says: The trailer is fantastic!!Avatar ImageName Unknown says: OMG! Can't wait!Avatar ImageDanielleD says: can't wait! can't wait! can't wait! can't wait! can't wait! can't wait!

I might actually be able to go to a midnight showing of this one. Avatar Imagered_7849 says: This trailer is the best one. Merlin's beard...Harry and Ginny..... Christmas party...Slughorn's party...Oh God, When is it gonna be July 17 ???Avatar ImageRadish says: Squeee! Love it! It totally made my day!Avatar ImageAleraofRavenclaw says: It's nice to see a clean version of this trailer (and one without the Japanese announcer dubbing over the narration). It looks really awesome in HD on YouTube especially. Luna's lion hat looks great! I actually rewound the trailer and paused it so I could see it better. It looks cool! Snape looks surprised that whatever building Bellatrix is dancing in front of is suddenly on fire. He rapidly turns around, and suddenly there's Bellatrix. How come we're still not getting anything about the Half-Blood Prince potions book plot in these trailers? Are they planning to keep it a surprise? Jim Broadbent is doing awesome as Slughorn so far in these trailers as well.Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: aswomeAvatar Imagelisajean65 says: Squeeee! That was awesome! So much better now!Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: Incredible!Avatar Imagepottercastfan says: SQUEEAvatar ImageEnchanting says: Was it ever dirty? :P lol.Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Squee!
