Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: New Details!

By: Celebuzz / June 20, 2009

Thanks to the British Board of Film Classification, new details have emerged about the upcoming wizard epic Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Good job, British Board of Film Classification!

In explaining its decision to rate Half-Blood Prince as 12A (meaning that no one under 12 can see the film unless accompanied by an adult), the Board released the following revelatory statement, according to MuggleNet:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a fantasy adventure film based on the book of the same title, finds Harry and his friends returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their sixth year.

“The film contains moderate threat. The moderate threat occurs in one quite scary sequence in which Harry and Professor Dumbledore are attacked by menacing looking creatures that have emerged from an underground lake. Harry is pulled into the lake and dragged beneath the water. The scene has the potential to upset younger or more sensitive children.

“In another scene Draco Malfoy kicks Harry (below screen) and appears to break his nose; blood can be seen on Harry’s face. Tables are turned later on in the film when Harry defeats Malfoy in a wand battle in the school toilets. Malfoy, who is rendered unconscious, has several bloodstains on his white shirt and his blood can be seen to mix with and cloud the water on the flooded floor.

“Malfoy, however, is soon completely healed by a nearby teacher. The film contains mild language including the words ‘God’, ‘bloody’, tosser’, ‘sod’, ‘hell’ and ‘git.'”

No way—git out!
