Explosive New ‘Half-Blood Prince’ Clip Burns Down Your House


So I just got through typing about Bill Nighy joining the last Harry Potter flicks and this gem falls on my doorstep. Literally on my doorstep. Someone sent me the link in a snail mail letter – pretty old school of them I’d say. If you’re not into spoilers or seeing stuff before movies come out, avoid the crap out of this.

But if you’re not, definitely check it out.

The clip is from an attack on The Burrows where a ton of the Order are holed up. There’s a ton of fire, Helena Bonham Carter’s character acting like Witch, Interrupted and a look at Fenrir Greyback’s powers.

There are two things I love about this clip:

  1. When Mr. Weasley yells, “Harry, Noo!” it reminds me a lot of when Grant yells “No, Tiim! Noo Tim!” in Jurassic Park, and that’s awesome.
  2. I love the repeat of the scene from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Bellatrix runs away screaming about killing Sirius Black while Harry chases after her. Nice little touch there, and it seems like she’s still crazy and obsessed. Or the writers accidentally shoved a page from the last screenplay into their work. Either way. Nice little homage.

We don’t see how the scene ends, but I’m really hoping that some eerie children with glowing eyes come out and kill all the adults.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out…you know, either you have it circled in red on your calendar by now or not. (It’s July 15th).

What do you think?
