Four New Potter TV Spots
Half-Blood Prince Gets Closer

As Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince approaches, four new TV spots have gone online to advertise the film. If you're one of the many fans dying to see the film, you may be able to suck on the marrow of these clips and find enough to sustain yourself while we wait for July 15.

The clips are largely similar in content, focusing on Harry and Dumbledore's trip to a sea cave, Harry's trip into Dumbledore's memories in the "Pensieve", and the climactic attack by CENSORED on CENSORED.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is out on July 15. Share your coping strategies on the long, long wait below.

RE: Rating (possible spoilers?)
More Harry Potter trailers?! I don't think there's actually any need for me to go and watch the film now, surely they've used every good sequence in it. More

Rating (possible spoilers?)
Well, it hasn't been rated yet here has it? No sign on the BBFC website anyway, so it might not be PG over here. I hope not at least. I want to see those Inferi being as scary as possible! More

I Can't Wait!
Harry Potter 6 looks like the most promising movie of the summer. If they can pull it off, it could easily be the best film in the series. P.S. evildave39, I think that the PG rating is for the film in America. I'm pretty sure that it's receiving a 12A rating in Britain. More

ains the scariest moment out of all the books Which bit dyou mean? The death of *cough*? And how about all the death and destruction in Deathly Hallows? The battle of Hogwarts better ramp it up to an 18, sharpish, else there ain't enough blood/guts. Screw the kids. More

Rated PG huh? Interesting considering it contains the scariest moment out of all the books. I can't imagine how they'll make the final book anything less than a 12 and that may be a stretch. Still looks crackin' though. Oh, FIRST! More
