  harry potter and the half-blood prince teaser trailer

Warner Bros. has officially announcedopens in new window the worldwide satellite teaser trailer debut for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, meaning we should see the trailer online -- probably Tuesday -- and in theatres by the end of next week!

(Going by a similar announcement for Order of the Phoenix in 2006: the satellite debut was November 20, and the teaser was online the same day.)

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 jealously 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.

The film itself will be released on November 21, 2008.
