Jude Law Set To Star As Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts sequel

12 April 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As fans across the globe eagerly await the next adventure in the “Fantastic Beasts” feature film series, Warner Bros. Pictures has announced the actor who will take on the role of one of J.K. Rowling’s most beloved characters. Two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law has been set to star as Albus Dumbledore in the “Fantastic Beasts” sequel, it was announced today by Toby Emmerich, President and Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Pictures.

In the much-anticipated new Wizarding World film, Law will portray Dumbledore long before the iconic wizard became the Headmaster at Hogwarts, as he has been known in the Harry Potter books and movies. We meet him decades earlier, when Dumbledore is still serving as the wizarding school’s Transfiguration professor. He is also a contemporary of Gellert Grindelwald, the charismatic dark wizard who believes wizards are superior to Muggles and No-Majs.

Jude Law Cast as Young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts 2

12 April 2017 11:06 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Everyone's favorite Hogwarts headmaster will have a place in the next Fantastic Beasts film, and now we know that the actor playing young Albus will be renowned actor Jude Law!  More details below!

Every Harry Potter fan who saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them knows that the film was mainly a vehicle to set the stage for a much bigger story, in Harry Potter lore.  The battle and relationship between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald.  We know from the first Fantastic Beasts that Johnny Depp is the Dark Wizard Grindelwald, however, we didn't know who would be cast as the eventual headmaster of Hogwarts, until now.

Jude Law has been announced, by Warner Bros. Studios, to play young Albus Dumbledore in the next Fantastic Beasts film.

Unlike his elder self, this version of Dumbledore will find him, not as headmaster but, as the Transfiguration professor at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. »

4 board games that should be movies

26 February 2017 6:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon Connelly Apr 20, 2017

The complexity of modern board games lends itself to the big screen. Pandemic: The Movie, anyone?

In the last few years, two potential big-screen adaptions of board games seemed to get a little traction with the Hollywood studios. Several drafts of a Monopoly movie were prepared, and at one point, it even seemed like Ridley Scott might saddle up to shoot the thing. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler orbited around a comedy based upon the brain-curdlingly dull Candy Land.

Now, I can’t tell you how those films would have turned out, and I’m certainly not going to say Monopoly and Candy Land absolutely, definitely should not be movies. But I am happy to say, with 100% certainty and even a bit of simmering frustration, that Monopoly and Candy Land should not be board games.

At least not board games anybody ever plays. Just put the dang things in a museum already. »

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey

21 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

This is a toughie. In terms of looks, both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s faces remind me of between forty and fifty of my least-favorite classmates during »

Dean Trailer: Demetri Martin Struggles with Love and Loss

15 February 2017 1:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

CBS Films has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming comedy Dean, which marks the directorial debut of comedian Demetri Martin, who also stars as the title character and wrote the screenplay. The film was the winner of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival's Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature. CBS Films picked the film up after its world premiere, setting it for limited release on June 2.

Writer/Director/Comedian Demetri Martin stars alongside Academy Award winner Kevin Kline in this comedic and heartfelt tale about a father and son coming to terms with love, loss and everything in between. Dean (Demetri Martin) is an illustrator whose unwillingness to deal with the recent death of his mother means escaping his hometown of New York for an interview with an ad agency in Los Angeles. His retired engineer dad Robert (Kevin Kline) takes a more regimented approach to grief, including putting the family home up for sale. »

Berlinale: Liam Neeson, Studiocanal, Michael Shamberg Team for ‘Hard Powder’ (Exclusive)

31 January 2017 9:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Liam Neeson, European group Studiocanal and producer Michael Shamberg are teaming for “Hard Powder,” a Rocky Mountains-set action revenge thriller that is likely to prove a hot ticket at next month’s Berlin Film Festival market.

Directed by Hans Petter Moland and written by Frank Baldwin, “Hard Powder” will go into production in March in and around Banff, Alberta, and other locations in Canada.

It stars Neeson as Nels, an upright snowplow driver, awarded a Citizen of the Year prize by his glitzy Colorado ski town, whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by a powerful local drug kingpin.

“Fueled by an unwavering drive for vengeance and armed with heavy machinery, this unlikely hero sets out to dismantle the cartel with extreme prejudice, and he’s not stopping until he gets to the top of the food chain,” “Hard Powder’s” synopsis reads.
