Exactly how many trailers of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince are we going to get? My weak heart can’t take it anymore! The latest one (the fourth, by my count) confirms what I already knew: I am seeing this opening night. The question now becomes: how many times am I going to see it? Yes. The new trailer is that good.

When I first read the book (after buying it at Barnes & Noble at midnight—yes, I was one of those people), I immediately thought: ‘This will make a great movie.’ There’s some pretty stark imagery in that sixth book, especially in the passages with Harry and Dumbledore in the seaside cave. To my delight, those are the scenes that kick off this latest trailer. Elsewhere, we see more of Draco Malfoy and Bellatrix Lestrange, as well as a completely haunting view of Katie Bell suspended in air, screaming at the top of her lungs (around the 1:30 mark). And we even get our first real glimpse of the Inferi, who look like cast-offs from Lord of the Rings but are downright chilling nonetheless.

I sometimes forget how much of a Harry Potter nut I am, and then I see something like this and completely melt into an raving fanboy. All I can say is I cannot freaking wait until July 15 (yes, we get this two days earlier now). What about you? Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think.
