'Goblet of Fire' trailer preview
Published September 12, 2005 at 9:44 PM
As we presented last year for Prisoner of Azkaban, we've got a new sneak peek at what to expect in the theatrical Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire trailer, hitting movie screens and online around September 16. Our sources say it's "the best Harry Potter trailer ever."
MAJOR SPOILER WARNING: Brand-new footage is described herein, so avoid if you don't want to know.
Here's a general synopsis of the 2 minute, 30 second long trailer in chronological order. It's by no means comprehensive nor an exact transcript:
Beauxbatons ship flies in
Durmstrang rises from the water
Voiceover: Dumbledore explains that Hogwarts will host two schools, and introduces them
(Harry spits out his juice when he sees the Beauxbatons girls – hilarious)
Harry asks Cho to the ball
Prof. McGonagall gives dance lessons – using Ron as her partner and asking him to place his hand on her waist – he gives a grossed out face and says, "Wha...?" – SO FUNNY
Overhead view of the Yule Ball
Viktor kisses Hermione's hand while one of the Patils asks, "Is that Hermione Granger with Viktor Krum?"
Ron accuses Hermione of fraternizing with the enemy
Dumbledore explains the Triwizard Tournament
The Champion selection (Viktor, then Fleur, Cedric then Harry... shows different people's reactions when Harry's name is called...)
Harry yells at Ron, claiming he didn't put his name in there and he doesn't even want to be a part of the tournament
DADA class with Mad-Eye demonstrating the killing curse on a spider
Shots of the actual Triwizard Tournament
Harry exclaims how his scar is hurting
Shots and voiceovers about the rise of the Dark Lord
Flashes of MANY different scenes: the burning of the tents at the Quidditch World Cup, the Mermaids for the Triwizard tournament, and at one point, Sirius's face in the fireplace embers
Ends with the title and Hermione's voiceover saying everything's going to change
UPDATE: DanRadcliffe.com has posted a summary of the trailer as well.
