Cinematical has just received these four very cool (and haunting) character banners for this summer's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which just topped an AOL Moviefone poll as the film readers were most looking forward to seeing. But that shouldn't surprise anyone; folks has been itching to see Half-Blood Prince ever since its release date was pushed back several months from last November to this July 15, and it seems fans are desperate to spend as much time as they can with Potter and the gang before their big-screen adventures come to an end (after Half-Blood Prince, all that's left is the two-part Deathly Hallows finale). Check out larger versions of all four character banners in the gallery below.

Directed by David Yates, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince finds friends Harry, Ron and Hermione a bit older, wiser and, well, more attracted to the opposite sex. As Harry begins his sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, our hero discovers a mysterious book that helps him learn more about the evil Lord Voldemort's dark past.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
will arrive in conventional theaters and on IMAX screens on July 15, two days earlier than the previously scheduled July 17.
