Even though we've seen an excessive number of trailers, including an awesome final theatrical trailer, for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, it's still exciting to see this first TV spot. Not only does it mean that it's finally coming soon, but it also just looks great, and it's one of the movies I'm most excited to see this summer. Though I'm curious, is anyone worried about the comedy in this? Obviously that kind of comedy is a part of the Harry Potter series, but I'm worried that there'll be too much of that and not enough of the dark story and wizard action. We'll find out soon enough. But for now, I'm still incredibly excited.
Watch the first TV spot for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
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, and is written by Steve Kloves, who also wrote the adaptations of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire, but did not write Order of the Phoenix. This is the sixth book in J.K. Rowling's immensely popular series. Warner Brothers will debut Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in theaters worldwide on July 15th this summer. We'll be there!
