    That Crabbe is nothing but trouble...and no wonder he's so good with that fire curse.

    I haven't read Deathly hollows in awhile, is Crabbe even in that book? I wonder if he'll be in the movie now cause of this.

    Crabbe and Goyle are in Deathly Hallows in a brief, but important scene. One of them (I think it's Crabbe) casts a fiendfyre curse in the Room of Requirement, which he looses control over. It kills him, but also destroys the Room and one of the Horcruxes. Harry saves both Draco and Goyle, for which Draco appears to be utterly ungrateful.

    I don't know what the anti-marijuana laws are like in the UK, but it looks like he's been bailed out. He can't have more than a few weeks of work to do on DH 1 & 2. He's a minor character and will not have to be on set for very long. Since this is his first offense (I'm assuming), he probably won't get jail-time and will be able to do the work required.

    Spiffy new pictures guys

    As much as I like the Smnape one, the one with Dumbledore near the billboard is rather funny.

    I'm not a Draco fan, but even I think that's rather harsh. Draco wasn't so much being ungrateful to Harry as he was determined that Harry saves him and Goyle|Crabbe. Which is... kind of awesome of him considering that Goyle|Crabbe had just rebelled against him.

    I say utterly ungrateful because Draco immediately turns around and points out Harry and Ron to a bunch of nearby Death Eaters- and appears because its entirely possible he was grateful, but was just too proud/scared to show it to his nemesis.

    Every HBP trailer I see reinforces my opinion, more and more, that this will be the best Potter yet. To sustain this level of excitement, creativity and wonder six films into a series is nothing short of astonishing.

    I was in London this week (school trip) and we were in Stratford when they were filming this [in Picadilly Circus]. Didn't find out until the next day...figures the one night we weren't there... >.<

    Right after they have to escape from Bill and Fleur's wedding when the Death Eaters attack. That would explain Hermione's dress.

    Those pics are exciting. :D

    It has occurred to me, intriguingly, that the Potter films break down into four "couplets" or "duologies", grouped together by director and subject matter, thus:

    Films 1 and 2 are both mainly children's films, both directed by Chris Columbus and having a very similar style in terms of cinematography, costumery, prodcution design, etc.

    Films 3 and 4 are both a little more mature in their subject matter, one directed by the super-stylish Alfonso Cuaron, the other by the more traditional Mike Newell. Despite their differences they are united as being stand-outs in the series, both stylistically and by their directors, both of whom gave singular and unique offerings to the series.

    Films 5 and 6 are mature works both directed by David Yates, with stylish editing (going by the HBP trailer here) and rife with color, humor and intensity.

    Films 7 and 8 will be the most mature films, again both directed by Yates, this time from a single source book which obviously unites them.

    /shrug/ Anyway, I found this idea interesting.
