Fans of the wizarding world of J.K. Rowling were ecstatic when new footage from the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald premiered at this year’s CinemaCon.
The footage brings us back to the much beloved Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, showing us a young Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in his Defense Against the Dark Arts class as he comes face-to-face with a Boggart – a magical creature we first met back in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Also revealed in the footage was Jude Law’s already-praised portrayal of the great Albus Dumbledore, back when he was merely a professor at Hogwarts. In the clip, Dumbledore explains the nature of a Boggart: a creature that takes the shape of whatever you fear most. Newt’s greatest fear, it is revealed, is working at an office job (I’m right there with you, Newt).
The film is a direct sequel to 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and has Newt Scamander and Albus Dumbledore team up in an effort to take down Gellert Grindelwald as he tries to conquer the wizarding world. The Fantastic Beasts films are also a prequel series to the massively successful Harry Potter Franchise, which took the entire globe by storm way back in 1997 with the release of the book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is set to release November 16th later this year. It is directed by David Yates, who also directed the first Fantastic Beasts and the final four Harry Potter films, all of which have been met with great acclaim. The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone and Johnny Depp as the infamous Gellert Grindelwald.
7 Great Deathstroke Stories That Could Inspire The Movie
Now that fans know Deathstroke will be getting his own movie directed by The Raid’s Gareth Evans, it’s time for everyone to brush up on their Slade Wilson knowledge. Deathstroke is DC’s deadliest assassin and one of the smartest tacticians in the world, as well as the oldest foe of the Teen Titans. He’s even taken on the whole Bat-family single-handedly and escaped, proving just how tough of a fighter he is.
The movie will likely depict him as an anti-hero of sorts, a relatively new status for the character. Throughout most of his history Deathstroke has always been more of a self-interested fighter than a righteous man, but recently he’s developed a conscious and a desire to help people in DC Rebirth. He was even one of the main villains in the Batman: Arkham Origins game, proving that audiences are ready for more Slade Wilson.
