Six New Harry Potter Posters Online

The gang goes dark for Half-Blood Prince

As Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince inches ever so slowly closer to release, here are six new character posters for the film to whet our appetite a little further - as if the fans needed the encouragement.

For non-fans, these are spoiler free. For those familiar with the book, however, there are some nice touches here. Note that the newspapers blowing around behind Harry show headlines mentioning Deatheater attacks, and a picture of Lucius Malfoy; that Dumbledore's standing outside a sea cave; that Ron is wearing Quidditch robes; and that Snape is in the astronomy tower (gasp! Eeeek! Take a minute to collect yourselves if necessary).

In fact, aside from Draco's appalling turtleneck jumper and shoulderpadded jacket, there's lots to love here. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is out on July 17.
