HBP on IMAX, Bill Nighy, DH paperback, Clips Online, Toys... oh my!

Here's a bunch of HP news bits for today.

Online news sources recently revealed that the first 12 minutes of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (TM) will be in IMAX 3D. Members have been asking if this will be the only 3D sequence. Based on the IMAX description that Warner Bros. Phils. sent us, it looks like that is the case.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: An IMAX 3D Experience

Featuring the explosive opening exclusively in IMAX ® 3D

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® through proprietary IMAX DMR® technology. Additionally, utilizing IMAX’s revolutionary live action 2D to 3D conversion technology, the movie’s opening sequence, approximately 12 minutes, has been transformed into IMAX 3D for a truly magical beginning. With crystal clear images, laser-aligned digital sound and maximized field of view, IMAX provides the world’s most immersive movie experience.

The Leaky Cauldron and several news sources are reporting that Bill Nighy has been cast as Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! More info HERE

The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trade paperback has been spotted in Powerbooks. It retails for PhP755, which is glaringly more expensive than the rest of the HP paperbacks (HBP retails for PhP400+). This could be a result of the recent controversial taxing on imported books. If you're smart, you'll look for the best deals being offered by the different bookstores. Wink

Several clips from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince have surfaced online. I've placed the scene descriptions and links in spoiler tags below:

Spoiler:
Part of the "Attack on the Burrow" sequence is up via My Space.

Part of the "Trio and the Mysterious Potions Book" sequence us up via AOL Moviefone

NECA has announced the first wave of their Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince action figures. They come in a 7" and 3 3/4" line. Available figures for both the 7" and 3 3/4" line are: Harry in "The Cave Scene" outfit, Ginny in school uniform, and Draco in school uniform. Mad-Eye Moody is an exclusive for the 7" line, while Lord Voldemort is an exclusive for the 3 3/4" line. Click HERE to see the descriptions and images of the figures.

My system isn't allowing me to test if the spoiler tag is working, so if you guys have any problems with it, please send me a PM. Thanks!
