This is The Reason Daniel Radcliffe Believes He Landed The Role Of Harry Potter

There’s a very good reason why Daniel Radcliffe got the part of Harry Potter so many years ago, and it’s the one that he believes landed him the role of the title character. In movies the ability to act is sometimes taken for granted as being all that is needed to achieve the kind of fame that these young stars were exposed to from a young age. However it’s not enough as has been shown. Daniel has admitted that he’s not the greatest actor, but that he had a passion for the life that made him do as much as

This is what French ‘Muggles’ will be called in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

The Harry Potter universe is a sprawling, and dense world, full of its own unique mythology. That universe has not slowed a bit since the main series concluded back in 2011, with Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them carrying the torch. The movie introduced some new ideas, as well as terminology, for fans to soak in. Through the first film starring Newt Scamander, we learned that the American term for ‘Muggle’ was ‘Nomaj’. Now, in Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald, we will delve into the world of magic in France where we are also are introduced to a brand-new type of ‘Muggle’ – the French variety: Non-Magique.

Talking to EW, director David Yates talks a little bit about this uncharted corner of the wizarding world:

“[The wizarding world in Paris is] quite glamorous, it’s quite beautiful. There’s a community that lives alongside the muggle community, it’s much freer than in New York,

Fantastic Beasts 2 Director Shares the French Word for Muggle

Fantastic Beasts 2 Director Shares the French Word for Muggle
Fans got their first look at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald last month with new photos of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), and today we have some intriguing new details about the story. It has long since been confirmed that this sequel will be set in France, and in a new interview, director David Yates revealed what the word for "muggle" is in French. Last year's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them revealed that the American equivalent of muggle is "no-maj," and the French term is quite similar: "Non-magique." A Muggle is a non-magical person, or a regular human being.

Harry Potter fans also learned in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that the magical community in the United States is quite different than the U.K. with a distinct and rather strict separation between the magicians and the "no-maj" citizens. Director David Yates,

Saoirse Ronan may be on the verge of getting her second Oscar nomination, but there’s one thing she won’t have anytime soon: a boyfriend.

“I don’t know how to date,” the 23-year-old actress told Ellen DeGeneres during a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. “I don’t date. I’m not into the whole ‘Let’s go out to dinner.’ I wouldn’t know what to do!”

Daniel Radcliffe’s A Drug-Running Pilot In Beast Of Burden Trailer

Post-Potter life has been fairly kind to Daniel Radcliffe.

From battling The Woman in Black to infiltrating a neo-Nazi sect in Imperium, not to mention the wholly irreverent Swiss Army Man, the former Boy Who Lived has consistently strayed outside his comfort zone in order to approach weird, wonderful, and often compelling roles. And Beast of Burden is yet another interesting feather in Radcliffe’s hat.

The film sees the actor playing Sean Haggerty, a “drug-running pilot who teams with the DEA to bring down the cartel on the promise of medical treatment for his ailing wife.” While it’s supposed to be his “last job,” things don’t go according to plan and he finds himself in an extremely tricky situation. It might be a bit of a generic premise, yes, but judging from this first trailer, which can be seen above, Radcliffe looks to have picked another

Beast Of Burden Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe, Drug Runner, Flies Into Trouble

The conclusion of the Harry Potter film series freed up Daniel Radcliffe to be whatever he wanted to be as an actor and I've enjoyed much of what he's done since, even if the film itself wasn't always successful. The Woman in Black, Kill Your Darlings, Horns, What If, Swiss Army Man and last year's Jungle rise to the top for me.  So even though Beast of Burden sounds, on first blush, kinda like the Tom Cruise vehicle American Made -- big star flies a plane on daring drug mission -- the dramatic tone and darker atmosphere sets it apart, as is evident in the first trailer.  The synopsis is succint: "Pilot Sean Haggerty (Daniel Radcliffe) must deliver cocaine across the Us-Mexico border for his final...

‘Beast Of Burden’ Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe Is A Drug Smuggler

Daniel Radcliffe‘s last few films have, to put it politely, flown under the radar.

Well, here comes another pic that will likely zip in and out of your brain.

Daniel Radcliffe Dishes On His Harry Potter Casting: “I Was Not The Most Gifted Actor”

Almost 17 years have passed since the launch and subsequent success of Philosopher’s Stone, and still, the Harry Potter IP continues to rake in the big bucks for Warner Bros. Pictures and series author, J.K. Rowling.

Both parties are now fully focused on their successor series, Fantastic Beasts, which is poised to continue through The Crimes of Grindelwald this November. But no matter what the future holds for Rowling’s rich world of witchcraft and wizardry, Daniel Radcliffe will forever be associated with the Boy Who Lived – for better or worse.

Because two decades ago, Radcliffe landed the role of a lifetime, even if he was initially taken aback by Warner’s decision. At the time, casting director Janet Hirshenson stressed that other Potter candidates were “not going to have the balls” for it, while Radcliffe, in typically self-deprecating fashion, believed he was “not the most gifted child actor.”

Lebanese Prime Minister Steps In to Overrule Ban on ‘The Post’

Lebanese Prime Minister Steps In to Overrule Ban on ‘The Post’
Rome – A ban in Lebanon on Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” was overruled Wednesday by Prime Minister Saad Hariri in what appears to be the first time a film has surmounted a negative recommendation by Lebanese censors.

Distributor Italia Film, which is handling “The Post” in Lebanon, called the reversal “a big victory” and said they expect to release the Spielberg real-life newspaper drama Thursday as planned.

The Lebanese censorship board had recommended that “The Post” be banned, citing a “boycott Israel” list that includes Spielberg because his Oscar-winning 1993 Holocaust film “Schindler’s List” shot some scenes in Jerusalem. The ban recommendation is also believed to have been made because Spielberg is blacklisted by the Arab League for reportedly donating $1 million to relief efforts in Israel in 2016 during its war with Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement.

Lebanon is officially at war with Israel and has a boycott again Israel in place.

Each Of The Five Fantastic Beasts Movies Will Be Set In A Different City

Proving that the ongoing Harry Potter prequel saga will be a globe-trotting affair, Warner Bros. has confirmed that each of the five Fantastic Beasts movies will take place in a different city.

Word comes by way of Entertainment Weekly, who spoke to director David Yates about The Crimes of Grindelwald…and beyond. Truth be told, the fantastical sequel has come under fire recently due to its decision to stand by Johnny Depp, who clinched the coveted role of Gellert Grindelwald despite allegations of domestic abuse.

David Yates, J.K. Rowling, Daniel Radcliffe, and even Amber Heard have all chimed in with their at times conflicting thoughts, but the reality of the situation is that Depp will likely remain a fixture of the Fantastic Beasts franchise from this point on, even as Warner’s spinoff series begins to expand into different territories. New York and Paris have already been scratched off the

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MacUsa (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested,
