Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: New Posters—and Secrets!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: New Posters—and Secrets!-photo

Check it out, Potter-heads!

With less than a month to go before Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits theaters (mark July 15 on your calendars, if you haven't already), a new batch of posters have made their way onto the Internet. And here they are for your enjoyment! Pretty striking, huh?

In addition to the new posters, screenwriter Steve Kloves has spilled some fresh Harry Potter dirt to the Los Angeles Times. In a wide-ranging interview, Kloves reveals that, among the 12 uses for dragon's blood, it makes a pretty dandy spot remover. (This, revealed to him by author J.K. Rowling herself.)

Kloves also dishes about Half-Blood Prince's climactic scene between Snape and Dumbledore, and how it will play out on the big screen.

"It is informed by everything [Potter readers] have come to know is true. So if you watch the film carefully, there are performance moments that are quite extraordinary, Alan Rickman [who plays Snape] especially," Kloves reveals. "There is something we added that you can look forward to, a short scene between Harry and Snape prior to the big event. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays to the audience. It should be a haunting moment for Harry. While I was writing, I just had a notion about a moment between him and Snape, something Harry could look back on and question as to why he didn’t act differently."

Ooh, we're already atingle with anticipation!

Have your say in the comments section: Do you think Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will match up to previous Harry Potter installments?

    Twilight is a sweet story. NEWSFLASH: Vampires are everything BUT SWEET! It is just too juvenile for me and being a modern woman, I could not relate to a bunch of High School teenagers. And that's fine, because that is exactly what it is - A young adult Vampire-romance novel. And 'neecee24'-for you to say that True Blood copied Twilight is absurd!! True Blood is an adaptation of the, "The Southern Vampire Mysteries." A series of books written by bestselling author Charlaine Harris that were first published in 2001. While Twilight was published in 2005. So I hardly doubt that there was any copying going on. Although these two series are both Vampire, I feel that True Blood is an actual version of what Vampires are known to be like... What I love most about True Blood, is the 'Setting.' It's in the South, which includes all the political, religious, and back-woods kinda views that still exist today. It and also embraces the modern world and how today's society would respond to the Supernatural. And playfully confirms the exitence of it. What I enjoy most is the rawness of their reality...the sex scenes are just a bonus. I'm curious to see what's in store for the Fourth Season...can't wait!!

    There is NO argument here. Twilight I think is EXCELLENT for tween/teen crowd, and True Blood is for adults. Period. There is NO comparison. It is also ridiculous to even TRY to break down the two. It is like comparing apples to oranges. One might compare the Vampire Diaries to Twilight but VD came first.I think both True Blood and Twilight series are GREAT for their target audiences though! Now to clear up the "what came first/who is copying who" argument ; True Blood is based on books by Author Charlaine Harris (The Southern Vampire Mysteries) were published in 2001. Where as the Twilight series authored by Steven Meyer were published in 2005. Just for GP's The Vampire Diaries by LJ Smith were first published in 1991.

    True Blood is NOT a copy of Twilight. Just like the Vampire Diaries is NOT a copy of Twilight!! If you were informed about ANYTHING you would know that both book series were around waay before Twilight. Why does every twihard think all other vamp story is a copy of twilight! if anything it is the other way around...TB rocks!

    TB is disgusting, moral-less filth, TWILIGHT encourages true romantic love. Take what you want from either, opinion is just that. Twilight will win this vote.
