Dark clouds gather over Hogwarts, in a new image from Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince. Other stills show teenage lonesomeness and growing pains. It seems like yesterday these young wizards were sneaking polyjuice potion in the bathroom.

There are so many things to comment on in this gallery. What about Luna Lovegood's mascot attire, which absolutely must spawn a thousand cosplays. I don't seem to remember any quidditch mascots, but I totally approve of this little get up. Also I've got to call attention to the lonesome "boys riding on trains" photo, where Harry and Ron are lounging around looking like some miserable ad for Abercrombie Jr... ah, teenagers.


No doubt this film will be, at the least, beautiful when it's released July 15th.
