    I saw that in a website ,this is the original text :"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" hits screens on July 15, promising high-speed action, dark and dangerous battles with the forces of evil, budding romance at Hogwarts school for wizards and the expected death of a prominent character.

    I don't understand the phrase.

    It means that there will be high-speed action in the film. In this text 'promising' means 'it is likely that there will be'.
