SPOILER ALERT: We take a closer look at a minute and a half of tease.teaser trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been released and we've decided, here at RT, to take a closer look at the minute and a half of new footage. Read our breakdown of the things to look out for when the sixth film in the Boy Wizard franchise comes out.
It's the start of another year at Hogwarts. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) may make only the briefest appearance in the trailer, but we know exactly the film being trailed as the Hogwarts Express opens the film...
...followed by an overhead shot of a stormy Hogwarts castle. It's on one of these large, conical towers that the film's powerful finale will be played out.
Meanwhile a gaggle of over-eager extras do their best to avoid looking straight at the camera (and plenty fail, bless 'em) as Professor McGonagall (Dame Maggie Smith) struggles through the throng.
