We are little under three weeks away from the release of the first in a series of prequels to Warner Brothers’ Harry Potter franchise. The first film, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, stars Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne and will detail the wizarding world decades before the titular character was even born. Yesterday, the studio cast Black Mass star Johnny Depp in one of the sequel’s lead roles, with many assuming the controversial actor will portray the series’ main villain. Interestingly, the film is already looking at making $75 million in its opening weekend in the United States alone; depending on the critical reaction, that number could go up or down.
Below, you can check out not one, not two, but three brand new exciting TV spots for the new movie. I, myself, refuse to watch anymore footage so close to the release date, as I want to go into the film knowing literally nothing. But for the Harry Potter fans out there, sit back, and enjoy these three spots.
So, what do you guys think? Are you excited for Fantastic Beasts? Have you gained or lost interest because of the casting of Johnny Depp? Nevertheless, the film is set to hit theatres everywhere on November 18.
