Half-Blood Prince premiere week kicks off today

The release of the film is very close (as you can see from our Half-Blood Prince countdown above) and this week is a huge one for promotion of the film.

Three premieres have been scheduled for this week. Tokyo's premiere was today (see a few photos at Radar Online – no actors were present), London's premiere is tomorrow, and the New York premiere will take place on Thursday.

To kick off this week's events, a photo-call was held today with actors Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, Jim Broadbent, Jessie Cave, and Bonnie Wright. You can see many photos from the call right here courtesy Getty Images.

Don't forget that the UK premiere will be streamed live online tomorrow at this link. The feed will start at 1 PM EST. MuggleNet staff member Nick will be present at the premiere to interview the stars for our site!
