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.

QUEEN OF SOUL ARETHA FRANKLIN DEAD AT 76

 
Aretha Franklin, known for having one of the greatest voices in music history, and for hits like “Respect,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” … died Thursday after a long battle with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Aretha passed away in her Detroit home where she was under hospice care. She’d been in failing health for many months and she was down to 86 pounds. One source told us he was informed more than a week ago that Aretha could go at any time.

She was surrounded by friends and family when she passed. Her family released a statement, saying, “In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family.”

She had appeared incredibly frail in recent years, and rarely performed live. Her most recent appearance was last November for Elton John’s AMFAR event.

Aretha’s career is just incredible. Born in Memphis in 1942, her family eventually relocated to Detroit where she began singing in her father’s church. She was such a powerhouse gospel singer, she landed a Columbia record deal in the early ’60s.

Her string of chart-topping hits began with her Atlantic Records deal in 1967.

Aretha’s achievements in the late ’60s were remarkable for any artist, but especially so for a black woman in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. She held the record for the most entries on the Hot 100 list of any female artist for nearly 40 years, only to be dethroned in 2017 by Nicki Minaj.

She won 18 Grammys and was the first woman ever inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Aretha delivered a powerful rendition of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” — while wearing that unforgettable hat — at Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration.

Throughout her career, Aretha was known for delivering incredible one-off live performances, including at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors show where she sang ‘Natural Woman’ in honor of the song’s co-writer, Carole King.

The Queen of Soul was 76. She is survived by her 4 sons.

RIP
