'Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,’ the second installment in a collection of new original writing by J.K.

Daniel Radcliffe: I'd do another 'Harry Potter' movie

28 June 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Never say never again. While the original Harry Potter movie series is over, the person who played the title character, Daniel Radcliffe, hasn’t hung up his wizarding wand for good. In an interview with Radio Times, Radcliffe said any potential return to play Harry would “depend on the script…The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.” It’s hard to say whether that opportunity will happen, but the woman behind the phenomenon, J. K. Rowling, hasn’t left that world behind. There’s the continuing story on the Pottermore website, the spin-off book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (which is already being made into a movie with Eddie Redmayne) as well as the play »

J.K. Rowling Reveals Four Houses, History of America’s Hogwarts

28 June 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The U.S. may not have Hogwarts, but it has its very own wizarding school instead: Ilvermorny.

J.K. Rowling offered up new details on the institution with a new story on “Harry Potter” site Pottermore. It’s the latest in a series of information Rowling has dropped to whet appetites for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the upcoming “Harry Potter” spinoff movie set in New York City 70 years before the “Harry Potter” stories start.

The four houses are named after magical beasts: Pukwudgie, Horned Serpent, Wampus and Thunderbird. As Rowling puts it, “Horned Serpent favors scholars; Wampus, warriors; Pukwudgie, healers; and Thunderbird, adventurers.”

The short Pukwudgie is a distant relative of the European troll, and isn’t a fan of humans. The Parsel-tongue-speaking Horned Serpent is a river serpent with a jewel in its forehead. The Thunderbird can create storms as it flies, and the panther-life Wampus is “almost impossible to kill. »

Fantastic Beasts: New Featurette Introduces Ilvermorny And American Magic

28 June 2016 10:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For all of the trailblazing success of J.K. Rowling’s mainline Harry Potter franchise, the series was largely self-contained, allowing fans to indulge in the rich lore of Hogwarts, its houses and most important of all, the wizards populating its opulent halls.

But with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Rowling switches gear to take the magical action Stateside, and that’s a creative jump that director David Yates (The Legend of Tarzan) will hope to emulate with his upcoming adaptation.

To get fans up to speed with the American version of Hogwarts – known as Ilvermorny – the official Pottermore Twitter has rolled out a new featurette that charts the school’s storied history. Of course, it doesn’t feature any footage from Fantastic Beasts itself but is still a stylish info dump about Rowling’s American world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Finding Dory’ Sequel Drowned ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

26 June 2016 3:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like the rest of the summer, it’s a mixed bag.

The good news: this weekend’s top two films, one opener and one holdover, grossed nearly $115 million. That’s better than the top two last year (holdovers “Jurassic World” and “Inside Out”).

The bad news: while “Finding Dory” is a huge success, “Independence Day: Resurgence” is a dud that will likely fall like a rock from its underwhelming opening.

Buddy comedy “Central Intelligence” enjoyed a strong second weekend, and low-budget horror flick “The Shallows” scored a better-than-expected opening, buoyed by rave reviews. But Stx’s risky opening strategy failed for Gary Ross’s historic epic “Free State of Jones,” starring Matthew McConaughey. Another national release in under 800 theaters bombed. “The Neon Demon” and its sub-$1 million haul is covered in Arthouse Audit. (This week’s box office preview is here; last weekend’s Top 10 Box Office Takeaways is here. »

Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »

Christine Birch Replacing Dwight Caines as Sony Pictures Marketing President (Exclusive)

24 June 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A makeover of the Sony Pictures Entertainment film marketing operation that began earlier this year gained steam Friday with the news that the unit’s president of domestic marketing, Dwight Caines, will be replaced by Christine Birch, who returned to the studio a little more than three months ago.

Josh Greenstein, Spe’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution, announced the management makeover in a memo to staff members. He said that Caines, whose contract is up this fall, “wanted to make a change and explore other opportunities after the ‘Ghostbusters’ marketing campaign is completed.”

The female-powered comedy remake premieres July 15 and Caines will leave later in the summer. Although insiders said Caines’ exit was voluntary, it had become clear since Greenstein lured Birch back to Sony — where she previously had worked for 12 years — that she and Caines had overlapping duties. A revamp seemed inevitable.

'A New Hero' Featurette for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

23 June 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

WB continues to introduce audiences to the cinematic world of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with featurettes focusing on new characters in the Harry Potter universe. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who winds up letting loose a suitcase full of magical creatures in New York City in the 20s. It looks like they're still finishing the FX, so most of the footage involves characters interacting. There's some brand new shots we haven't seen before, and plenty of discussion from author J.K. Rowling, who was much more involved in the making of this than she was Harry Potter. The full cast includes Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell and others. They're doing a good job building up interest in this, as I'm getting more and more curious with each new video they release. Here's the "A New Hero" featurette for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, »

A Closer Look at 'Fantastic Beasts' Thanks to International 'Harry Potter' Fans

23 June 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We were promised there was something special coming out of VidCon when the latest Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them poster was revealed. Now we can thank some international YouTube stars for some exciting new stuff from the Harry Potter prequel spinoff. The VidCon presentation is 40 minutes long, but thankfully Warner Bros. has already started splitting up the fun featurettes they showed off there. J.K. Rowling spoke a bit on Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander. "My heroes are always people who feel themselves to be set apart, stigmatized, or othered. That's at the heart of most of what I write." Rowling explained. "[Newt] has been traveling the world, studying magical creatures. He calls himself a Magizoologist." There're some new clips featured in this video as well.     And then we get into jealousy territory as YouTube stars from all over the world got to practice magic on the set of the film. »

A new featurette for ‘Fantastic Beasts’ has arrived

23 June 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ahead of its release this November, Warner Bros. have released a brand new featurette for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

David Yates is directing the film, his second of 2016 following The Legend Of Tarzan which arrives in just a couple of weeks. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander.

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.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gets a new J.K. Rowling-narrated featurette

23 June 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been on our top five list of our most anticipated titles since it was announced, and a newly-released featurette has us even more excited.

J.K. Rowling’s latest foray into the magical world she made famous with the Harry Potter series goes back in time to the 1920s, where magizoologist Newt Scamander learns about the American wizarding world of New York City. There’s lots of new footage in this featurette, including some of the fascinating magical creatures Newt brings on his journey.

We also learn that the American wizarding world is very different from the British one, with distinct laws and customs. It’s been a long time since we’ve had new information about Rowling’s magical world, and we can’t wait to learn more.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Featurette Cracks Open Newt’s Mystical Briefcase

23 June 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seven mainline novels, eight movies, and one lasting legacy makes for quite the magical foundation – and doesn’t Warner Bros. know all about it. Later this year, the studio will return to J.K. Rowling’s world of witchcraft and wizardry only this time, for an adventure that doesn’t involve the Boy Who Lived.

Instead, Potterheads will be indulging in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, David Yates’ mystical offshoot that takes place a full 70 years before Harry Potter’s plight against He Who Must Not Be Named.

And so, in hopping across the pond, we are introduced to Newt Scamander, a proud Hufflepuff and pioneer in the field of magizoology. Armed with his trusty briefcase – packed to the rafters with strange and wonderful creatures – Eddie Redmayne’s dashing lead pays a visit to the Magical Congress of the United States of America, and it’s there that said case breaks open, »
