So this week we finally get the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. And it seems like it was only yesterday that we were grumbling about the delay.
- Rotten Tomatoes has the film in at 98% fresh with 41 reviews in! Pretty good odds, no?
- Sci Fi Wire looks at how, where and why Half-Blood Prince deviates from the book.
- Entertainment Weekly looks at Potter through a teen-movie lens.
- Hero Complex has continued their Potter countdown by talking to such folks as Michael Gambon (Dumbledore,) Bonnie Wright (Ginny,) Natalia Tena (Tonks,) composer Nicholas Hooper and more.
- Find the lion’s share of stills from the film at io9.
- And looking forward to Deathly Hallows, Pirates of the Caribbean’s Bill Nighy is on board to play Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour.
