Half-Blood Prince trailers!

You know, the Twilight trailers look fun and all, but the new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailers look awesome.

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

Trailer 3

I think Half-Blood Prince was my favorite of the books, so I'm excited to see these snippets of scenes.

However, either they added something or my memory fails me. Who's the chick checking out Harry, who Hermione says is "only interested in you because she thinks you're the chosen one"? Doesn't look like Ginny...unless they curled her hair for one scene.

Romilda Vane, of the love potion contaminated chocolates that Ron eats

And these trailers were so great :)

OH, okay! Thank you. I remembered Ron with the terrible love potion experience, but didn't recall the girl they came from. Got it.

No problem! I actually thought they cast her too pretty- less easy for the non readers to hate.

Looks awesome - I can't wait. Hooray for Luna and her Spectraspecs!

Those did look pretty great. Wish trailers would let us see things for more than a tenth of a second.

That actress that played Romilda would have made a great Hermione. She looks the part and I hear she can act.

Yeah, I think she would have been a great Hermione, too! She's also prettier than Lavender, who I thought was supposed to be much prettier.

"Children's" lit or not, this would have scared the living crap out of me when I was at the target age. (Admittedly, I was a "sensitive" youngster, but STILL!)

But how perfect is Helena Bonham Carter? .05 seconds on screen, and you can tell she OWNS that part. (And oy is that offspring of hers with Tim Burton gonna grow up straaaaaange...)

It's hard to know how I would have taken it as a kid. We had some weird eclectic viewing material. I'll be curious how it strikes my son when he's old enough to understand it.

Yeah, Helena Bonham Carter is always pretty awesome, even if she's a bit of a homewrecker in real life. They have offspring? Yikes. Strange, yes.

OMGOMGOMGOMG. Thanks for posting these - I'm so excited.

The "Dumbledore surrounded by fire" scene is JUST as I'd pictured it when I read the book.

*bounces up and down*

And the "I am the chosen one - THWACK!" had me laughing out loud.

(So much better than Twilight.)

Happy to spread the joy!

Harry joking about being the Chosen One is, as people have pointed out, out of character for him--he never liked being the chosen one. But it's still a really funny acting moment by Radcliffe there, for sure. :)

Ooh, this movie looks like it will be awesome!

Cool to have something that far ahead to look forward to. Reminds me a little of the LOTR movie days.

I was going to say Romilda Vane, but of course I've been firsted and seconded, days ago. Is Dumbledore carrying his Gandalf impersonation a bit too far in that second trailer. Albus, I was in the Fellowship with Gandalf; I knew Gandalf; Gandalf was my friend. Albus, you're no Gandalf the Gray.
