Months after the release of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" trailer, Warner Bros. Pictures have brought forward a brand new U.K. trailer of the much awaited sixth installment of the "Harry Potter" series. Providing a gloomier look into the movie, this international trailer is relatively short but gives out a taste of how dark the movie will be.
If the earlier released trailer is focused on the first meeting between young Tom Riddle a.k.a. Lord Voldemort and Albus Dumbledore, the new trailer highlights on Dumbledore describing Voldemort's magic and him telling Harry that the young wizard is the chosen one. In the trailer, Dumbledore also indicates that dark forces are trying to get inside Hogwarts.
Starring once again Daniel Radcliffe as the titular character, "Half-Blood Prince" will follow Potter in his sixth year at Hogwarts during which the wizarding world is at the edge of war as his nemesis, Voldemort, grows even stronger by day. Helped by his two trusted friends, Ron and Hermione played by Rupert Grint and Emma Watson respectively, he has to uncover the mystery behind the nickname Half-blood Prince he finds in a Potion book.
Directed by "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" helmer David Yates, it features also the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Julie Walters and many others. Initially set to be released on November 21, it has been pushed back to see a U.K. and U.S. release on July 17, 2009.
