Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens next Wednesday, July 15th. Based on the 6th and penultimate book in the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, the film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, who enters his sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson).
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the war against Lord Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggles have been affected. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses. And yet ... as with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to apparate. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry receives some extraordinary help in potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. And with Dumbledore's guidance, he seeks out the full, complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort -- and thus finds what may be his only vulnerability.
Though scheduled to open on July 15th in theaters, the IMAX version (with only 3 exceptions) will not open until July 29th due to a contractual conflict. For more information about the film, visit the official website on WarnerBros.com.
