Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson are back for a sixth time to play the roles that made them stars in both the wizarding and muggle communities. The film also stars Michael Gambon, Jim Broadbent, Alan Rickman, David Thewlis and Helena Bonham Carter, among others. Check out photo galleries below and visit the trailer page to see the gang in action. “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” directed by David Yates, is scheduled for release on July 15, 2009.

Film synopsis:
Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealousy but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.
