The magic returns in new ‘Fantastic Beasts’ trailer

25 July 2016 12:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Warner Bros. have debuted the new trailer for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off movie Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, which will be heading to cinemas this November.

Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures.  Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

‘Legend of Tarzan’ Tops Foreign Box Office With $44.7 Million

24 July 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Legend of Tarzan” swung to the top of foreign box office charts over the weekend, propelled by a solid opening in China. The adventure epic led competitors with $44.7 million from 17,500 screens in 61 markets. The big contributor was the Middle Kingdom, where “The Legend of Tarzan” picked up $27.1 million in its first six days of release.

The attempt to relaunch Edgar Rice Burroughs’ pulp novels about a man raised by apes has floundered domestically, weighed down by its $185 million price tag. The film’s global total now stands at $260.5 million. That’s a respectable gross, but a film of this size needs to do upwards of $400 million to be considered a success, let alone trigger a sequel, which is basically the point of greenlighting a movie with that kind of budget. Warner Bros. is backing the film, which was directed by David Yates, the filmmaker behind most of the Harry Potter movies. »

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

23 July 2016 6:06 PM, PDT | 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

23 July 2016 5:12 PM, PDT | 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

23 July 2016 3:40 PM, PDT | 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

23 July 2016 3:37 PM, PDT | 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.

According to the synopsis released by the studio, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed »

Ladies of Lust: The Female Gaze in Tarzan and Ghostbusters

20 July 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Ladies of LustThe Female Gaze in Tarzan and Ghostbusters.

Commercials and trailers for Warner Bros. The Legend of Tarzan would leave you hard-pressed to find the story before you saw Alexander Skarsgard’s abs. Even the marketing material, with images of Skarsgard in the rain, begs for women to put the image on their cell phones with the tacit reminder that The Legend of Tarzan comes out in July. Yet Twitter and Facebook was littered with women saying how horrible the film looked but that they were planning to watch it anyway because of its shameless promotion of male skin.

The rampant thirst was enough for me to dub The Legend of Tarzan the Magic Mike of 2016 for tapping into women’s yearning for male skin in a cinematic world where women’s bodies are part and parcel of moviemaking today. Director David Yates must have had an awareness of the desert wasteland that is male nudity »
