Dumbledore to Return in 'Harry Potter' Spinoff 'Fantastic Beasts'?

28 January 2016 3:48 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Five years ago this summer, the Harry Potter movie franchise came to a close with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, but most fans knew that wouldn't be the last we'd see of this lucrative property. Sure enough, Warner Bros. announced in 2014 that a new trilogy will begin with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling. The story will be set 70 years before Harry Potter first set foot in Hogwarts, although fans are still wondering if there will be any connections to Harry Potter and his magical classmates. As it turns out, one of the original Harry Potter cast members is quite desperate to reprise his role in this prequel.

Michael Gambon played Headmaster Albus Dumbledore in the last six Harry Potter movies, after the death of Richard Harris. The actor recently spoke to Express, revealing that he wants a »

Variety Critics Pick Their Oscar Nominees

5 January 2016 11:46 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film critics, we’re often told, don’t vote for the Oscars — but if they did, here’s what at least three of their nomination ballots might look like. We listed our top five choices for best director, actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, original/adapted screenplay and cinematography. For best picture, we allowed ourselves 10 choices, based on the unlikely but theoretically possible outcome of 10 nominees in that category.

And a good thing, too. Quality doesn’t limit itself to those movies with the marketing dollars to support a full-fledged Oscar campaign, and there are any number of worthy films and performances that Academy members — who are in the business of making movies, »
