THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED! I appreciate your excitement, but stop sending emails asking for tickets, THERE ARE NO MORE.
The fine folks at Warner Bros. Pictures have given us tickets to the Washington, DC Advanced Screening of HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE™ to give away! The screening will be Monday, July 13 at 7pm (Note the Early start Time). In Theaters Everywhere Wednesday, July 15th! This contest will run Tuesday, June 30, 2009 – July 10, 2009. Sorry this will not be one of our no hoop jumping contest, we want to give everyone a fair shot at the passes.
Emboldened by the return of Lord Voldemort, the Death Eaters are wreaking havoc in both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that new dangers may lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. He needs Harry to help him uncover a vital key to unlocking Voldemort’s defenses—critical information known only to Hogwarts’ former Potions Professor, Horace Slughorn. With that in mind, Dumbledore manipulates his old colleague into returning to his previous post with promises of more money, a bigger office…and the chance to teach the famous Harry Potter.
Someone posted the code in the commenting section, breaking the spirit of the contest, so all of our passes are now gone. In the future I will not send out any codes until the day before a screening.
Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry’s long friendship with Ginny Weasley is growing into something deeper, but standing in the way is Ginny’s boyfriend, Dean Thomas, not to mention her big brother Ron. But Ron’s got romantic entanglements of his own to worry about, with Lavender Brown lavishing her affections on him, leaving Hermione simmering with jealousy yet determined not to show her feelings. And then a box of love potion-laced chocolates ends up in the wrong hands and changes everything.
As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof with far more important matters at hand. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.
David Yates, who directed the 2007 summer blockbuster “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” returned to direct “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, produced the film, together with David Barron.
