Every day between now and 2010 I will be posting some of the best trailers that were released this year, regardless of whether the eventual film sucked or not. Yesterday it was the third trailer for Star Trek, and today it is the third trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which was released in April.
For a reason I can’t quite remember I stopped watching the Harry Potter movies after Prizoner of Azkaban so I wasn’t really passionate about the early trailers for Half-Blood Prince. It was a case of writing “here’s the trailer, it looks darker than the others, enjoy”. However after watching this third trailer which featured bridges being destroyed, Dumbledore encircled by fire, flying Death Eaters and epic music, it reignited my inner wizard.
Within 2 weeks of the trailer’s release I rented all 5 movies to catch-up, and I saw Half-Blood Prince the day it opened. I then decided to buy all the books and read them within the space of 3 weeks so I could join in with the Deathly Hallows hype. This one trailer has turned me into a Harry Potter nut.
Here it is:
What did you think of the trailer? Was it the best trailer for Half-Blood Prince?
I’ll be posting another trailer tomorrow, and if you have any suggestions feel free to send it over in an email or leave it in the comments section below.
