As the theatrical release of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" creeps closer, more stills from the action fantasy adaptation are unraveled. One of the fresh photos exhibits Daniel Radcliffe's Harry Potter and Georgina Leonidas' Katie Bell in what seems to be the Great Hall, while the other presents Bonnie Wright's Ginny Weasley during breakfast.
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" centers its story at the time when Voldemort's grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds is tightening. With Hogwarts no longer being the safe haven it once was, Dumbledore begins to prepare Harry for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Bringing in his old friend and colleague Professor Horace Slughorn, he works together with Harry to unlock Voldemort's defenses.
Despite the ever growing danger, love is in the air for the students of Hogwarts. Harry finds himself more and more attracted to Ginny, and finds out that so is Dean Thomas. While Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, Ron gets distracted by Romilda Vane. Hermione, on the other hand, determines not to show her jealousy.
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" is starred by Daniel Radcliffe, Bonnie Wright, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane and many others. Rated PG, it is directed by "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" helmer David Yates. Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the movie in U.K. and U.S. simultaneously on July 17.
