Japanese Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Trailer Good Enough to Be Rated PG-13

As avid fans of frightening imagery and adult situations, we were quite disappointed to learn earlier this month that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince would carry a PG rating, especially after the previous two movies scored PG-13's for scenes of intense, childhood-scarring fantasy violence. Happily, though, this new Japanese trailer makes the film look as dark as we'd hoped (and not just because of the crappy video quality), with all Death Eater attacks intact, fiery, totally scary-looking. That's the last time we let a negligent MPAA ruin our anticipation!
