Considering the teaser trailer has yet to be released, this may be a tad premature, but we aren't complaining. In their list of most-anticipated upcoming films this year, MTV considers the possibility of Half-Blood Prince generating Oscar buzz for our leading guys and gal:
[A]ll eyes are on director David Yates as he attempts to bring them to life while matching the book's emotional impact. Last year's "Order of the Phoenix" gave us darker imagery and dramatically heftier acting from the leads. Now, with the magical series winding down, could "Prince" be the film that finally stirs up Oscar buzz for Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and/or Emma Watson? With enormous sets like the underground cave that houses one of Voldemort's Horcruxes, and new characters that include Jim Broadbent's enigmatic potion master, Horace Slughorn, Yates certainly has his work cut out for him. If only there were a spell that could transport us to November.
