Hermiones’ hand cleaned up for trailer

Hand_hermes Abracadabra?

A Harry Potter fansite has made an interested discovery on the new “Deathly Hallows” trailer.

Hermoines, played by Emma Watson, appears at one point in the Warner Bros.’ teaser to be holding up a magic wand in a moment of distress, only in the real film, the young wizardress’ hand is actually covered in blood.

If you watch the extras on the “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” DVD, you can see the blood for yourself.

While you could make the argument that Warner Bros. altered the footage to make the upcoming “Deathly Hallows” less-violent, the MPAA is likely the true culprit here as the Motion Picture Association requires trailers to be “Approved for All Audiences.” In other words, no bloody violence.

A Warner Bros. rep was unavailable to comment on the story.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” opens nationwide November 19.
