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.

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.

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.

fantastic beasts 2 title treatment

It doesn’t sound like we will be looking for more Fantastic Beasts in the sequel. Instead, fans will be looking at the crimes of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). That’s because the official title of the sequel to the Harry Potter prequel is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

And to commemorate the title’s announcement, Warner Bros. has released the first official look at the cast, including our first look at Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. Check out the image below.

Han Solo header image

In the weeks leading up to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we will probably hear a lot more about the other spinoffs that take place within the same universe. While Disney and Lucasfilm had planned on alternating between the saga films and spinoffs every year, the only other spinoff what we know about is that of the untitled Han Solo film that is set to begin production early next year.

The film will focus on a younger Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) in the years before we first met them in the original Star Wars trilogy. While there isn’t a definitive plot synopsis, producer Kathleen Kennedy dropped a few hints that tell us more about the film’s tone. According to her, the spinoff will have a heist or western type feel to it. More on the story below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo and Chewie

After an exhaustive search to find the right actor to play Han Solo in the currently untitled standalone film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller finally chose Hail, Caesar! star Alden Ehrenreich.

It was quite an expensive search, at least that’s how the directors have put it, and now their attention has turned to finding an actress to play the female lead. Though the film is still far from shooting, the two are in the early pre-production stages of getting ready for the 2018 release and we now have an idea of who that female lead may be. Check out the full story below.

Dope Movie Review

Dope
Director: Rick Famuyiwa
Screenwriter: Rick Famuyiwa
Cast: Shameik Moore, Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Kimberly Elise, Chanel Iman, Tyga, Blake Anderson, Zoë Kravitz, A$AP Rocky
Open Road Films
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: June 19, 2015

In Dope, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a teenager trying to survive in Inglewood while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him on an adventure, that could allow him to go from being a geek to becoming “dope.”

Written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa (The Wood), Dope was a critically acclaimed audience favorite at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It’s a smart, ambitious comedy-drama that’s equal parts Go, Superbad, and Kid and Play’s House Party, with a touch of John Hughes.
