USA Today has released two new photos from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The photo above gives us our first look at a young Tom Riddle, played by Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, who grows up to become Lord Voldermort. The cool thing about Hero’s casting is that Hero is actually the real-life nephew of Ralph Fiennes, who plays Voldermort in the film series. The photo below shows Dumbledore, played by Michael Gambon, who creates a firestorm to fend off a group of reanimated and haunted dead people called Inferi. Director David Yates compares the scene to Charlton Heston’s parting fo the Red Sea in the Ten Commandments. “It’s an almost a biblical image,” Yates says. Indeed. The first teaser trailer for the next Potter film is expected to hit the web sometime in the next 24 hours.
