But, see, then we get to have Harry Potter in the theatres for a longer period of time! I'm kind of glad they're spacing it out--it allows the fans to really appreciate and digest what was seen on screen...

...That being said...I too would like to see 'Half Blood Prince' come a little sooner ;)

Did everyone hear that yesterday the actor playing Marcus Belby in the next movie was stabbed to death in a London pub?  I don't know how this will affect filming or anything as his character was rather minor and I don't know how much filming they've actually done, but it still is really sad that it happened. 

This is the article from CNN:

 LONDON, England (AP) -- A British teenage actor playing a minor role in the upcoming "Harry Potter" film was stabbed to death during a brawl in London on Saturday, police said.

Rob Knox, 18, was stabbed after he got caught up in a fight outside a bar in southwest London early Saturday, London's Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Knox plays Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in the upcoming film "Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince," the sixth installment of the popular series set for release in November.

Warner Bros., the studio that is producing the film, said it was shocked by the news.

Knox was one of five young men taken to various hospitals after the brawl, police said. Among them was a 21-year-old who has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The fight did not appear to be gang-related, police added, but it puts the number of violent teenage deaths in London at 14 so far this year.

I didn't anything about this.  That is so sad, such a young soul taken.  Please keep the family in your prayers.  Here is a link to a BBC News report.

Ahhh, Harry Potter!  My tied-for-first-with-Faire obsession.  <3

We're already making plans for the HBP release, and we're hoping to find a midnight showing somewhere nearby.  ^.^

I have...mixed feelings about DH being two movies.  Yes, I'm happy about it, but at the same time, I feel that they wouldn't have to do it, had they not left so much important stuff out of the other movies.  XD  I can't help but wonder if part of the reason they're doing two movies is because they have to put a good bit of back story in, y'know?  (Then again, I, personally, wouldn't have understood the third movie at all if I'd not read the book!)  The third and fifth books are my favourites, and...well, they kinda butchered the third movie.  The fifth wasn't -terrible-, but there was a lot they missed that I feel is kind of important on down the line.  But, either way, the more Harry Potter, the better, says I!

The news of Rob Knox's death is quite sad.  Such a young man, and it's always a tragedy when a life is cut so short.  I do wonder if he'd shot any scenes yet, and if they'll keep them in the movie.  It would be a lovely tribute.

Did you all see they are actioning the PRE-Quill (800 pages) to Harry in London on Thursday?

I will see if I can find the article.

The trailor looks great. Thanks for the link. It kinda has a horror movie vibe from the link. How exciting. Little Tom seems just right to me so far.

It's scheduled to to open Barbarian Invasion weekend. With the large group we have scheduled for the following (Celtic Christmas) weekend, let's enjoy a week of anticipation and snippets, then invade a Tomball theatre in garb on Friday night. It's not like we don't already know what happens...... ;)

Sounds like a good idea, perhaps our McLotofus planner Blue6669 can work on planning it out.
