U.S. trailer for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” released

November 17, 2008

The first full U.S. trailer (below) for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is now out, ironically a week before the movie was originally set to hit theaters. The trailer contains some of the same scenes of the previous teaser clips, but it’s the first to provide a sense of the film’s balance between light and dark moments, including a choice one featuring a love-struck Ron Weasley.

Plot Synopsis: Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Where the first teaser trailer from “Half-Blood Prince” focused on a young Tom Riddle, the boy who was to become Voldemort, and the international trailer on climatic battles between good and evil forces, this one provides a tad more exposition about Harry’s quest-to-come: finding Voldemort’s Horcruxes, the artifacts in which he’s hidden pieces of his soul.
