A new picture from the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie has appeared online of Frank Dillane, who plays a teenage Tom Riddle in the movie. The new picture comes with a reminderopens in new window of the ABC preview of the Potter movies which we previouslyopens in new window told you about.

Scenes previewed from the new movie include:

A look into the tortured past of Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle (played by Frank Dillane), an introduction to the new Potions teacher, Professor Slughorn (Jim Broadbent), and scenes of budding love in the hallowed halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

David Heyman has this to say about the HBP movie:

It's different than the other films. It's not the non-stop action that some of the others are, although there is some action. It's more of an emotional film. We follow multiple stories: Harry's relationship with Ginny Weasley, Ron's relationship with Lavender Brown. … There also is Hermione's discomfort with Ron's relationship with Lavender. There's Draco Malfoy's story. And then there's Harry's relationship with (Hogwarts headmaster and professor) Dumbledore. We're following these multiple stories that enrich the canvas.
