Jude Law To Play Dumbledore In Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them Sequel

Variety is reporting Jude Law has been tapped to play young Dumbledore in the “ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ” sequel. David Yates is returning to direct and Eddie Redmayne will be back to star alongside Johnny Depp , who will play the villain Grindelwald. Albus Dumbledore is one of the most iconic characters in J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. Richard Harris made the role famous in the first two “Harry Potter” pics. Michael Gambon later took over the part after Harris’ death in 2002. The two-time Academy Award nominee will portray Dumbledore long before the wizard became the headmaster at Hogwarts and Potter’s mentor. Set decades before the original “Harry Potter” films and books, Dumbledore is still serving as the wizarding school’s transfiguration professor in “Fantastic Beasts 2.” Please Leave A Comment-

Moana Wins Thanksgiving Box Office

Disney's very good year continued apace across the typically busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend – which for movies usually stretches from the Wednesday before the actual celebration. Moana , the company's latest animated offering, got off to a strong start at the American box office, earning $55.5 million for the weekend and $81.1 million across the period from its release on Wednesday, according to studio estimates. That figure means Moana enters the charts as Disney's second-highest opening in the Thanksgiving period, behind just Frozen, and seems likely to have the same longevity – adding in its overseas totals, the movie is sailing towards $100 million after just a few days. With the all-powerful 'toon sweeping into the top spot, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them had to vacate its throne after just one week, but still earned a healthy $45.1 million across the three-day weekend. And Doctor Strange slipped to third with $13.3 million after four weeks in th

Movie Review: #FantasticBeastsandWhereToFindThem

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a dull, convoluted mess that looks like a magician's apprentice made it. WARNING: This review contains massive spoilers. Review by Matt Cummings Among the best of Hollywood's film franchises, Harry Potter might also be known as one of the least appreciated. What began as a series of stories told by Author JK Rowling to her children turned into an 8-movie bonanza that captured the imaginations of an entire generation of moviegoers. It literally was the magic of a Potter wand capturing lightning in a bottle. Which is why it's so difficult to announce that its prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is such an utter disappointment: it's clunky, poorly-cast, and captures exactly zero of the Harry Potter magic that our nation now sorely needs. Set 70 years before Harry Potter first picked up a wand, a British wizard named Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in 1926 New York ready to deposit a magica

Dumbledore Will Return In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Sequel

Given that Albus Dumbledore – future headmaster of Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry – is alive and kicking during New Scamander's ( Eddie Redmayne ) time and is mentioned in one of the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them trailers, it won't surprise you to learn that director David Yates has confirmed we'll meet the younger Dumbledore in the sequel to the new movie. "In the second movie Dumbledore comes back. He’s got a couple of good scenes with Newt…" Yates said at a roundtable for the film attended by Screen Rant. "We’re discussing who would play Dumbledore, any suggestions would be good!" Though the late Richard Harris and then Michael Gambon played the character in the Harry Potter movies, the Fantastic Beasts will be looking for someone to take on the mantle of the younger Dumbledore. Tough gig... And with rumors continuing to swirl that Johnny Depp - who has reportedly been cast in the sequel – could be playing the nefarious Ge

First Look: Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

With David Yates now deep into filming the first entry in a planned trilogy based on the expanded world of the Harry Potter stories through the adventures of Newt Scamander, we’re thrilled to bring you an exclusive first look at the logo for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. It’s certainly an intriguing image – that “from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World” prefix hints at bigger things afoot in the future and there’s some nifty touches, such as the wand underlining that initial element and the dragon forming the “s” in "Beasts". Fantastic Beasts was adapted by Rowling herself from her 2001 book. Eddie Redmayne is starring as Scamander, who plies his trade as a magizoologist around the world, and visits New York in this first adventure. The story takes place roughly 70 years before Harry and the rest have their tangle with the dark forces of Voldemort.
