Naturally, the books are better. They always are. If you haven’t read them yet, I highly recommend them, but you need to start with book one. The Half-Blood Prince is one of the top-two in the series. Enormously entertaining. I read it straight through the day it arrived. The movie promises to be just as exciting.
I can hardly wait!

If you’ve been with us a while, you might have noticed I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books, and, only slightly less so, the movies. So, naturally, I have been waiting very impatiently for the first glimpse of the movie of the 6th book in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
The movie, which comes out in November (precisely 113 days, 20 hours, 15 minutes and 20 seconds from the time of this writing), has also been chosen as this year’s Royal Film Performance. It’s not clear just which Royal will attend — I’m putting my money on Harry or William. But who knows! maybe they’ll drag her Majesty, the Queen, along for the show.
In any case, if you’ve read the book, most of the trailer should make sense to you. But be forewarned! they have apparently added a scene to the movie to illustrate the increasing dangers Voldemort and his death eaters pose to the outside world, and especially to Harry himself. Its a scene where Fenrir Greyback and Bellatrix LeStrange attack Harry and the Weasleys at the Burrow. I am dubious, to say the least. I don’t like it when they mess with my movies!
Nonetheless, I wait patiently for the theatrical trailer. This is one of the best books in the series and promises to be one of the most exciting movies yet.
November is a very long time away!
