Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: new trailer for sixth Potter movie
A new trailer for the latest and sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, has been released by Warner Bros.
The film was supposed to open in UK cinemas November 21, 2008 but the owners pushed the release date back to July 16, 2009 in what many see as a blatant publicity stunt to ensure the film is massive success when it is finally released next summer.
The writers' strike that brought Hollywood to a standstill earlier this year is also thought to have played a part in the delay.
The sixth Potter film, directed by David Yates and produced in the UK, promises to be the darkest yet. It carries the tagline: "To know the future - return to the past."
The film features a flashback to Tom Riddle as an 11-year-old - the character who goes on to become Harry's arch-enemy, Lord Voldemort.
The young boy gives a glimpse of the evil to come when he tells Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon): "I can make bad things happen to people who are mean to me. And I can speak to snakes. They find me. They whisper things."
Tom is played by newcomer Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, nephew of Ralph Fiennes, the actor who played Lord Voldemort in previous Potter films.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince reunites the three young stars - Daniel Radcliffe as Harry, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley. New cast members include Jim Broadbent, who will play Potions Professor Horace Slughorn.
