Five New Harry Potter 6 Photos To Kick Off the New Year!

It's almost 2009, so why not feature a few new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince photos? I'm going to admit that I normally don't do this kind of thing, but I really want to share these with everyone today for a few reasons. First off, that first photo of Bonnie Wright as Ginny Weasley is just plain beautiful. Secondly, I'm probably just as excited as everyone else about this movie and I'm sure Warner Brothers wants us to keep Half-Blood Prince in our thoughts all the way to July, since now we're into the "waiting period" time between when it was originally supposed to come out and when it got delayed until.
For those who have been reading those ridiculous rumors about Warner Brothers canceling the Harry Potter series before the last movie comes out, it's complete BS. I'm not reporting on it separately because I really don't feel I need to explain to everyone why it's not true, it should just be common knowledge.
Thanks to our friends at SlashFilm for digging a few of these up. If anyone wants to read a good analysis on why the rumors are BS, they have a great write-up over there to settle any speculation you may have.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is again directed by British filmmaker David Yates, of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix previously. The screenplay for this movie was written by Steve Kloves, who also wrote the adaptations of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire but not Order of the Phoenix. This is the sixth book in J.K. Rowling's immensely popular series. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince arrives in theaters everywhere on July 17th this summer. Be there!
