Fantastic Beasts The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Director: David Yates
Writer: J.K. Rowling
Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law, Johnny Depp
Studio: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13| 134 Minutes
Release Date: November 16, 2018

Another Fantastic Beasts film is a great excuse to revisit the ever-expanding wizarding world of Harry Potter. It proves that there is still a lot of mythology to explore and stories that need to be told. However, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is a poor attempt to continue that story.

Rather than build upon the foundation of the title franchise, the sequel is far too concerned with building its own franchise and treats its own characters like exposition pieces that are to be discarded when they have served their purpose. My full review, below.

Fantastic Beasts And The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and prequel to the Harry Potter film series. In it, we get to see a young Newt Scamader (Eddie Redmayne) being recruited by Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) to defeat the likes of the evil and powerful dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

With the film hitting theaters next week, we are going to see an increase in promotional material. And, of course, when we do see the film, it will reveal more connections to the Harry Potter films and expand its universe. Now, a couple of new featurettes explore those connections and Dumbledore’s journey through the years of Fantastic Beasts all the way to Harry Potter. Check them out below.

Dan Fogler interview

Years ago I became a fan of Dan Fogler from his offbeat comedies Balls of Fury (2007) and Fanboys (2009). He has since blossomed into one of the “it” guys in the business right now as he readies to appear in season 9 of TV’s biggest show, AMC’s The Walking Dead, has Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald coming to theaters in mid November, and has a recurring role in ABC’s The Goldbergs. He is also a writer of graphic novels, which all led him to this year’s New York Comic-Con. The Brooklyn-born actor and author sat at the Heavy Metal booth selling out copies of his graphic novel, Brooklyn Gladiator, before taking a few minutes to jump in a press room for some questions.

Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald Trailer

The first teaser for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was the very definition of a teaser. But if you are looking for some real magic, then its San Diego Comic-Con trailer will definitely cast a spell on you.

With the stakes this high, can Newt (Eddie Redmayne) bring an end to Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) or will Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) end up mourning the loss of his former student. Check out the newest trailer below along with a new poster.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald wants to know, who will stand against the darkness?

In the very likely event that the evil Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) escapes from his wizardry imprisonment, and follows through on his malevolent plans, it will most likely have to be Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to thwart it. And we get a sense of the impending doom that is about to befall in the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Check it out below.

Jude Law

Albus Dumbledore is a fixture in the Harry Potter mythology but was only mentioned by name in the prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. However, the character was bound to show up given his relationship with Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

Now we know who will be playing him in Fantastic Beasts 2. New reports confirm that Jude Law will be the one to cast the spells as a young Dumbledore. More on the story below.

Eddie Redmayne Passionately Defends Hufflepuff

When it comes to the Harry Potter franchise’s four Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry houses, most of the attention goes to Gryffindor and Slytherin. Fellow houses Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw always seem to take a backseat to the main two.

But the first movie in the Harry Potter spinoff series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in theaters today, and star Eddie Redmayne is having none of this second-rate house nonsense. The actor made a public service announcement video recently, in which he passionately defends the Hufflepuff name, even using a couple of naughty words which would no doubt make Fat Friar blush.

See what Redmayne had to say in the video below.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Director: David Yates
Screenwriter: J.K. Rowling
Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo, Colin Farrell
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG | 113 minutes
Release Date: November 28, 2016

Though the adventures of Harry Potter may have come to an end, J.K. Rowling’s legacy lives on. Now fans will be getting at five new spinoffs that expand the Harry Potter universe starting with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a prequel that is set decades before the events of the phenomenon that started it all. While I wasn’t a fan of the original books and never really got into the films themselves, Fantastic Beasts is whimsical and fun, and manages to address a few relevant themes that affect us all. One thing is for sure, it will give anyone without any prior knowledge of the books or films a reason to look at why Harry Potter has remained popular all these years.

Johnny Depp

When news broke that Johnny Depp would not only cameo in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but also appear in its sequel, it led to the speculation that he would be playing Grindelwald. A majority of social media were unhappy with this idea, but the die had already been cast. With four more sequels on the way, we know that Grindelwald’s relationship with Dumbledore, who is being cast as we speak, will play a key role in Fantastic Beasts 2.

Now there is confirmation that Depp will, in fact, be playing as Grindelwald. Check out the full story below.
