harry potter and the half blood prince New Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince International Trailer

I’ve read all the Harry Potter books except for the last, which I’ve decided to wait on. Despite liking the books, I have never really been a big fan of the Harry Potter film franchise–that is until I got a load of the first trailer for  Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince,  which is looking pretty amazing.

Now Warner Bros. has released the international trailer for The Half-Blood Prince on YouTube.  It’s reported to be the same as the Japanese trailer, but without the Japanese voice-over.  I suppose that makes sense, since the entire universe does not understand Japanese.

The new international trailer is as awesome as the first, and almost makes me excited to see exactly how the film depiction of The Half-Blood Prince is going to turn out. However, I think it’ll take more than a couple of trailers to truly get me going.

What do you think, is the movie version of The Half-Blood Prince going to be an apt representation of the book?  Should I be excited to see it on the silver screen or should I stick by my guns and keep to the books?

Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince is slated to hit theaters on July 17, 2009.

  1. Even though more and more of the books have been cut to make the movies, I think I trust David Yates — scratch that, I DO trust Yates. Alfonso Cuarón did an amazing job with “Prisoner of Azkaban”, but Newell’s handling of “Goblet of Fire” left me cold and worried about the state of the rest of the franchise. After “Goblet” I almost considered not seeing “Order of the Phoenix” in theaters… but I’m glad I did. Yates is going to bring the series to an incredible close, I have no doubt.

    That’s something we put in place that happens only when you visit the page.

    OK, I’m kidding. It’s a formatting issue that my editors weren’t aware of. I fixed it and sent them an email informing them how to fix it in the future.


  3. Can’t say I can at the moment agree with hamlet3k about Goblet of Fire, for me that was the Harry Potter film that got me really excited about the franchise. Goblet of Fire was when the films really started to get dark and gritty, not that that’s the entire selling point for me, but at least when I saw it in theaters it was what got me pumped up for the next one. Maybe I’ll need to go back and reevaluate Goblet of Fire, see if after a few years of being in the industry I would come up with a different answer with a more trained eye.

  4. Sarina, I don’t think I have ever seen any of your articles. Welcome.

    Methinks thou protests too much. :-) I actually thought Prisoner was the worst in the series, although still entertaining. I really liked the introduction of the Dementors.

    As a Christian, many of my brethren have scolded me for, not only seeing HP movies, but enjoying them as well. I just wonder how many Christians watch Betwitched or I Dream of Jeanie? My 2 sons and I have enjoyed HP immensely and will be there in July for this one.

  5. It’s not that I hated “Goblet of Fire” or anything; I just thought it spent its pennies in the wrong places. I thought the screen time could have been more evenly distributed — not so much with the interminable dragon chase, for one. I thought Dumbledore’s unmitigated rage was slightly out of place. And I was unimpressed with the way Newell introduced us to THE Voldemort we were going to see for the rest of the series: a mincing popinjay, prone to spit-spraying, empty chatter. Yates knew how to use Fiennes to his disturbing best. Voldemort’s brief appearances in “Order” carried an a$$load of menace. It felt like the first time I read “Dracula”. The title character makes three or four major appearances, but his presence haunts the book — his shadow looms over every action taken by the protagonists.

    All in all, as a fan of the books, I’m very happy with the way the film series has shaped up. It really could have been derailed at any point by a truly awful director.

    Now if someone would pick up the option for Clive Barker’s “Abarat”…

  6. as far as the films go, so far so good. You have to understand that in a series like this, there are going to be comprimises made. Which for all intents and purposes is a really good selling point for the stories themselves imho. The same was done with the Lord of the Rings movies, but for all intents and purposes they have managed to capture the spirit or essence of the stories within the films. The screenwriters and directors of the first films took the time to check with JK Rowling to know what the main bits of the story were going to carry through to the end and having said guidence, have been able to steer the movies along the main threads pretty well. It has helped that the kids originally selected have also grown and matured as actors making it more enjoyable to watch them grow through the films as well.

  7. I think that they could have done a somewhat better job in keeping the movies’ plotlines anything like the books. I’m not saying they were bad – I’ve enjoyed all of them immensely – but I always find it hard not to throw something at the screen when they leave a character out or change someone’s story (my backup there would have to be Barty Crouch Jr…he’s probably my favorite bad guy, and not just because David Tennant played him). However, HBP looks like it’s going to be a very good movie, and, from the previews, it seems to follow the book more.
