I really hope this gets captured (let’s not even speak of the Comic Con misery) Do you remember the Japanese preview for HBP. That was brilliant let’s hope for the same again this time. Plus I wanna hear Frak imitate the epicness of the Japanese voiceover guy again!

Japan is so. damn. lucky.
But I’ve got a question: how the HELL DID THEY GET THAT FOOTAGE when comic con NEVER RELEASED IT?!?!?!?!?!Did WB give it to them?!
Man, I am sooooooo hope that someone films it and posts it on youtube. If anyone on leaky is in Japan, plz go to the cinema and RECORD IT.
If you do, we will be eternally grateful to you if you do.
PLZ!!!
Secondly, it should be in the UK or/AND the US because we’re the ones who are ready to kill comic con for not releasing it in the first place.
Think logically WB, logically…

Well, it’s not like European, Asian, African, South American and Australian fans aren’t as mad as you guys are about the Comic Con footage failure, eh!
