18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 has already been shooting since mid-July, with the first Fantastic Beasts 2 set photo surfacing last month, it seems the cast is still coming together. A new report reveals that Danish-Japanese actor David Sakurai has come aboard to play a villainous new character, connected to the dark wizard Grindlewald, played by Johnny Depp. It isn't clear if David Sakurai has already started shooting his scenes, or how long production is expected to last for.

Deadline broke the news today, revealing that David Sakurai is playing a character named Krall. The character is described as "one of the ambitious and sulky henchman" to Gellert Grindlewald. The story is set in the year 1927, a few months after the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, where magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) captured Grindlewald in the first movie. Grindlewald promised that he would make his escape, »

‘Neo Yokio’ Voice Cast: A Visual Guide to Who Played Whom in New Netflix Animated Series

23 September 2017 3:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: This post contains very minor spoilers for Season 1 of “Neo Yokio.”]

Netflix has a fascinating track record with animation, taking big chances especially with adult-aimed series like “BoJack Horseman” and “F Is for Family” over the last few years. Its latest venture, “Neo Yokio,” looks nothing like either of those series — instead, it draws its visual inspiration from decades of anime as it brings us into the futuristic world created by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.

What does give “Neo Yokio” something in common with its Netflix sisters is its A-list voice cast, which features an eclectic but overall critically acclaimed group of actors, including Jaden Smith as young demon hunter Kaz, who just wants to be the most eligible bachelor in town, despite the growing sense that things might not be what they seem in this society.

Who are the other famous faces behind the scenes? Below is an illustrated guide to all of Neo Yokio’s VIPs.

Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid All Walk in Gigi's New Tommy Hilfiger Collection Fashion Show

19 September 2017 12:46 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After a successful season last spring, Gigi Hadid is back with another specially designed collection for Tommy Hilfiger’s popular Tommy x Gigi line.

‘Neo Yokio’ Review: This Futuristic Netflix Story is The Greatest Robot Butler Anime of 2017

19 September 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the broad scope of anime history, it would be inaccurate (and maybe even a little unfair) to call “Neo Yokio” an unprecedented series. But you’d be hard-pressed to find a batch of six TV episodes with quite the same subject matter overlap as the latest Netflix animated effort. Starring the voice talents of Jaden Smith and executive produced by Ezra Koenig, “Neo Yokio” is a hyperspecific blend of neo-futurist metropolises, prep school drama, and high-society intrigue, all with a dash of field hockey and weekend jaunts to the Hamptons. The result is a bespoke anime that’s confounding at times, but always in search of new layers to its insulated universe.

Wisely, “Neo Yokio” doesn’t spend more than a narrated intro explaining the origins of its title city, an alternate futurist New York of sorts. Instead it revels in a slew of off-kilter details in the life »

Miramax Boards Horror-Thriller ‘Perfection’ With ‘Girls’ Director Richard Shepard

Miramax Films has preemptively bought rights to the horror-thriller “The Perfection,” with “Girls” director Richard Shepard attached.

Netflix releases trailer for anime series Neo Yokio starring Jaden Smith

10 September 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has released the first trailer for Neo Yokio, a new six-episode anime series from Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), which sees Jaden Smith leading a voice cast that includes Susan Sarandon, Steve Buscemi, Tavi Gevinson, Jason Schwartzman and Jude Law. Check it out here…

Welcome to Neo Yokio, the greatest city in the world. It’s the most populous urban agglomeration in North America, but its prestige does not merely stem from its size. Neo Yokio is a diverse labyrinth of cultural and architectural innovation at the forefront of global fashion and finance. All of this is cold comfort to the lovesick Kaz Kaan (Jaden Smith), the youngest member of a family of: “magistocrats” – pink-haired demon slayers who once liberated the city. Today, his demon-slaying is barely more than a side-hustle coordinated by his Aunt Agatha (Susan Sarandon) – Kaz himself would rather concern himself with shopping, field hockey and – of course – mending his broken heart. »

Jude Law cast alongside Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez in new Woody Allen film

7 September 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jude law has joined Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez in the cast of Woody Allen’s new film.

Keeping up his tradition of casting the biggest names in Hollywood in his pictures, Woody Allen has managed to lure Jude Law into his yet-to-be-titled new movie.

This will be the third project that Allen directs for Amazon Studios, with the company previous having worked with the legendary filmmaker on Café Society and Wonder Wheel.

As mentioned, there is no title yet for the picture or logline available, which is usual for an Allen film at this stage of development. Variety reports, however, that the plot “could revolve around a coming-of-age love story.”

There are also no details regarding Law’s role in the movie; the actor has recently starred in HBO’s The Young Pope and Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Neo Yokio: trailer for Ezra Koenig's Netflix anime series

Kayti Burt Kirsten Howard Sep 8, 2017

Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig is bringing a new anime series called Neo Yokio to Netflix this month. Here's the trailer...

What a time to be alive.

Netflix just dropped a trailer for an anime original series from Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig starring Jaden SmithSteve Buscemi, Jude Law, Susan Sarandon, Desus and Mero, Jason Schwartzman and Tavi Gevinson, amongst others.

From the looks of the trailer, Neo Yokio is part-satire, part homage (a la Hot Fuzz), a series that aims to send-up many of anime's most ubiquitous tropes, while also paying tribute to them.

Neo Yokio, a play off of the 'New Tokyo' setting in anime classic Akira, is "a postmodern collage of homages to classic anime, English literature and modern New York fashion and culture." It follows the adventures of Jaden Smith's Kaz Kaan, a broken-hearted, pink-haired demon slayer who cares more about shopping, »
