Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald Trailer Is Here

Yesterday, Harry Potter fans all over the world were asked to have their wands ready for today, to properly watch the very first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The fans must have all had their wands ready for some time since the very first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel is finally here. It will serve as the second installment in the Fantastic Beasts series and the tenth overall in J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, a franchise that famously began with the Harry Potter film series. Fantastic Beasts 2 is directed by David Yates from a screenplay by Rowling.

Production for the latest Harry Potter sequel Fantastic Beasts 2 began in July of 2017 and wrapped in December, putting it in post-production at this time. Reshoots are expected, but it isn’t clear if they are scheduled yet. Fantastic Beasts 2 takes place just months after the first movie, in 1927, with Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) having escaped prison and starting to recruit others to raise pure-blood wizards to rule over the non-magical.

The only one who might be able to stop Grindelwald is the wizard who was once his best friend, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). The new footage released in the Fantastic Beasts 2 trailer is dark, mysterious, and pretty brief, leaving Harry Potter fans desperate for more. The wait is going to be a little bit longer since the sequel doesn’t hit theaters until November 16th, which sounds like an eternity for the hardcore followers of the Wizarding World series. Though the Fantastic Beasts 2 fans seem to have a little bit more patience than the Marvel fans.

The teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts 2 from yesterday featured the very first page from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’s first chapter, entitled The Boy Who Lived. The title of the chapter slowly transitions into a cloud of smoke off of the page. That enough, was plenty to get fans excited for the brand-new footage that they received today. The first trailer follows through on the dark and mysterious promise of the teaser trailer. With 8 months left to go, fans have plenty of time to speculate about what J.K. Rowling has in store this time around.

The idea for the Fantastic Beasts series was originally to have 3 movies, but J.K Rowling has said that it will instead consist of 5. She immediately began writing the third installment directly after writing the second and reportedly has ideas for the next 2 movies afterwards. As previously noted, Fantastic Beasts 2 hits theaters on November 16th in North America, and while there’s still 8 months to go, it makes plenty of time to dissect the trailer and pretty much every frame from the first movie. You can watch the very first trailer for Fantastic Beasts 2 below, thanks to Warner Bros.

Are John Cena and Nikki Bella Back Together?

Just over a month ago we revealed that WWE Superstars John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up ( you can click here to find out why Nikki Bella broke up with John Cena.)

Since their break-up both John Cena and Nikki Bella have been on a media frenzy, one for her reality TV show, and the other for his blockbuster movies.

John Cena has made it clear in these interviews, that he will stop at nothing to win Nikki Bella back, and it looks like it actually worked.

John Cena and Nikki Bella are finally back on the road to reconciliation!

A source told us that “they’re basically back together.”

“They both got a wake-up call once they canceled the wedding, and they both realized they could fix what was broken,” the source revealed.

“They never stopped talking,” a source told People Magazine. “Other than the actual wedding weekend, when they took some space, they have been talking.”

John had made it clear on NBC’s “Today” show that he wanted to have a family with Nikki and still wanted to marry her. If you watch Total Divas or Total Bella’s than you already know that this is exactly what Nikki wanted to hear.

“He has poured his heart out to her, and she was more than ready to take him back once she heard what she needed to hear,” the source from People Magazine added. “He’s been saying and doing all the right things.”

As seen below, TMZ spotted the couple in San Diego over the weekend, and it looks like we may see the power couple together again real soon for good!

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

With this morning’s trailer debut of Andy Serkis’ Mowgli, we now have a trailer for every major Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. release for 2018 except for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born and James Wan’s Aquaman. I’m guessing we’ll get a Star Is Born trailer (the film opted to forgo Cannes in favor of the more Oscar-friendly Fall festival circuit) attached to Ocean’s 8 in early June. That Aquaman trailer will drop, I dunno, sometime next month with Incredibles 2 or Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom or with July’s Ant-Man and the Wasp just before SDCC?

Either way, this darker, PG-13 variation on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is going to have to justify itself 2.5 years after Disney beat them to the punch with a pretty acclaimed and $996 million-grossing version of the iconic story.  Yes, this one is presumably more faithful to the original book than the Disney toon, the 1994 Stephen Sommers actioner or Jon Favreau’s animated/live-action hybrid from 2016. But at the end of the day, it’s still another live-action/animated action drama set in the same general world and stemming from the same source material.

It’ll be an uphill battle, even if this does turn out to be essentially a Jungle Book movie with the tone, mood and flavoring of Matt Reeves’ recent Planet of the Apes sequels. To be fair, this looks pretty spectacular from a purely visual point-of-view. And the animal cast, including Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Eddie Marsan and Naomie Harris among others, is pretty impressive if not quite as conventionally star-studded as Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Walken and Idris Elba. If not for the fact that we just had a variation on this movie from a different studio two years ago, this one would probably be looked at as a much bigger deal.

But this isn’t 1998 where audiences necessarily want two loose copies of the same movie in a short period of time. Heck, even in 2013 there was only room for one “Die Hard in the White House” movie, as the underrated but overbudgeted White House Down fell to the cheaper and nastier Olympus Has Fallen. Of course, a 2.5-year difference is different than a six-month (or less) span between movies. So will audiences feel that enough time has passed in between Jungle Book movies, even if this one does look pretty neat and does feel closer in spirit to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes than Walt Disney’s (occasionally somber and arthouse-ish) Jungle Book adaptation?
