New Comic-Con Trailer for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

11 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We're going to recapture my creatures before they get hurt..." Warner Bros has unleashed one more trailer from Comic-Con, this one for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We've already seen two trailers for this and a couple of featurettes, but this new trailer finally shows off some of the creatures (big and small) that Newt is trying to collect around New York. Eddie Redmayne stars as Mr. Scamander, a magizoologist. The full cast includes Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Jon Voight, Samantha Morton and many others. They could almost starting selling this in a way similar to Pokemon Go, as Newt has to go all over New York and collect magical creatures. But seriously, this looks quite good, I'm pretty much ready to return to this world. The new Comic-Con trailer for David Yates' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, »

Eddie Redmayne charms Comic-Con

12 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Another British actor earned his place in convention lore on Saturday as the Oscar-winner and star of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them handed out wands to everybody in Hall H.

The decision by the Warner Bros hierarchy to have Redmayne walk among the people – many of whom were screaming in glee – was a masterstroke finale that lifted what had otherwise been a typically loud presentation, albeit one inflected with more nuance and humour than this studio’s Comic-Con appearances are known for.

An otherwise satisfying session for executives had dipped into awkwardness earlier in the session when Suicide Squad director David Ayer acknowledged that someone would probably live-stream the trailer he was about to introduce – hitting on one of reasons why Hollywood has broadly stayed away this year.

Muggles Beware: ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Gets Magic-Filled Comic-Con Trailer

14 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Gosh, hasn’t it been too long since there was a movie set in the Harry Potter universe? Well, dust your wand off and hop out of that room under the stairs because money — er, magic — calls. After a teaser, we are now treated to the first full-length trailer for the Eddie Redmayne-led Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, based on a book that originated in the world of Harry Potter and helmed by long-time Potter director David Yates. Clever, right? Wouldn’t it be cool if Bilbo’s journal in The Lord of the Rings got its own… oh, wait. This first full trailer shows off more beastly wizarding fun and Colin Farrell grimacing — and what a great grimace it is.

New York Is Thrown Into Chaos In Comic-Con Trailer For Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After showing it off to those lucky enough to be in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has released the brand new trailer for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. This one really puts an emphasis on both the action and magical creatures in the movie, though we also get a much better look at the villain (at least it seems that way) played by Colin Farrell.

In the movie, Eddie Redmayne stars as wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter outings. The screenplay, meanwhile, was penned by the author of the Harry Potter novels, J.K. Rowling, and her involvement definitely makes this movie feel more exciting than it otherwise might have.

Director David Yates made his Hall H debut at Comic-Con to unleash the latest trailer of the highly-anticipated film, “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.” Joined by Eddie Redmayne, who passed out wands to the audience, the Oscar-winner led the room in a Luminous Maxima spell before they revealed the sneak peek.

22 July 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Set against New York of the Roaring ’20s, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them expands the Harry Potter world in a different direction, chronicling the remarkable journey of Eddie Redmayne’s wizarding pioneer Newt Scamander, who plots course for the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MacUsa) with a briefcase crammed full of wonderful critters.

The 50 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 21st Century Thus Far

19 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a medium founded on expanding one’s imagination and perception of reality, no genre does it better than science fiction. We’ve come a long way from the days when Georges Méliès took us to the moon, for today’s filmmakers look far beyond our universe and into the deepest corners of our soul to reflect the current society.

With the latest entry in the Star Trek franchise arriving in theaters this week, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s sci-fi films that have most excelled. To note: we only stuck with feature-length works of 60 minutes or longer and, to make room for a few more titles, our definition of “the 21st century” stretched to include 2000.

Check out our top 50 below and let us know your favorites in the comments. We’ve also put the list on Letterboxd to keep track of how many you’ve seen. »
