Harry Potter fans: the new trailer is out!! The sneak-peak at Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been highly anticipated, after months of buzz.

The sixth Harry Potter movie actually goes back in time to reveal secrets from the past, and features the story's adult characters in their youth. Hero Fiennes-Tiffin plays Tom Riddle, or young Lord Voldemort (adult Voldemort is played by Ralph Fiennes), and Mrs. Cole and Dumbledore are depicted as significantly younger adults.

"His mother (Martha Fiennes) is a film director, and Hero was very focused and disciplined," David Yates, the director, said. "The fact that he's related to Ralph wasn't the primary reason for choosing him. It was an advantage that he looked very similar to Ralph. Of course that was useful. But primarily I went for Hero because of this wonderful haunted quality that seemed to bring Tom Riddle alive on-screen for us."

The trailer hit the web today, and will make its theatre debut on Friday in the previews before The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

The actual Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie shit theatres and IMAX 3-D on November 21.
