In between the action of Transformers, and the screams over New Moon, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits theaters around the country on July 15.

The film is the sixth installment in this wildly popular franchise, and fans have been waiting awhile for it.

Originally scheduled for a December 2008 release, the movie was pushed back seven months. It’s received nothing but praise from critics, however, and we’re sure viewers will be quick to forgive once Harry and company appear on screen.

The cast, led by Daniel Radcliffe, endured a torrential downpour in London earlier this week for the world premiere.
