Wow, is it that time again? When the kids of the world (and those too old to be reading kiddie books among us, and you know who you are) wait with bated breath for the latest “Harry Potter” movie installment? Yup. November 21st brings back Harry Potter and the Hogwarts brood back to the big screen, where they will no doubt cast more ridiculous magic frabble jabba and ride around on brooms or something. (Can you tell I haven’t seen a single Harry Potter movie since the second one in 2002, and that I don’t even remember what happened in that one?)
Anyhoo. USA Today has more images from the movie (not your first look, those surfaced months ago), and this blurb about the plot:
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince— due in theaters Nov. 21 and highlighted in this exclusive look — the focus is on the evolution of Harry’s rival Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) into a malevolent force. Also introduced: Potions teacher Professor Slughorn (Jim Broadbent).
Harry will whip up some particularly potent brews, thanks to his discovery of a book mysteriously marked “the property of the Half-Blood Prince.”
Harry, now 16, is suspicious of Malfoy, and he works with Dumbledore to retrieve memories pertaining to the evil Lord Voldemort. But, being a teen as well as a wizard, he is drawn to Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright), the younger sister of Ron (Rupert Grint).
Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, is only 19, but the kid already looks 29. Seriously, this franchise is aging these kids faster than the Beverly Hills 90210 gang in the second season.
