“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is seven months away when it really should be two months old. No, I won’t let this go. I don’t care how much money “The Dark Knight” made for Warner Bros., I need a new “Harry Potter” movie every eighteen months or else I get cranky.

I also start grasping at any new footage I can find and since Warner Bros. probably won’t be cutting a final domestic trailer for the new movie any time soon (I’m guessing March is when we’ll see it), I have to head to the Land of the Rising Sun and check out this new, full-length trailer. While it has some stuff we’ve seen before, there’s also a bit of new footage, including a joke from Dumbledore which is sorely needed since Gambon plays the guy with none of the mirth of the character from the books or how the late Richard Harris played it.

Check out the new Japanese trailer below. It features a nice intro from Daniel Radcliffe where he speaks a little Japanese. It’s adorable.

“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” hits theatres on July 17th.
