Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald/Fantastic Beasts 2 (2018)

November 16, 2018
PG-13
Adventure, Fantasy

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Creed 2 (2018)

Action, Drama, Sports

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

This is the sequel to 2015's Creed, which was a spinoff of the Rocky film franchise that introduced audiences to Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed. Sylvester Stallone reprised his iconic Rocky Balboa character and earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance.

The Rocky series started in 1976, when the original movie was a box office hit and won Best Picture at the Oscars. It was followed by five sequels, beginning with Rocky II in 1979. The third and fourth installments were released in 1982 and 1985, respectively, and Rocky did not return until 1990's Rocky V. Widely seen as the worst of the series, its reception left a bitter taste in Stallone's mouth, inspiring him to come back for one more round in Rocky Balboa, which debuted in 2006.

Creed was the brainchild of director Ryan Coogler, who pitched the idea to Stallone and got him onboard. The film saw Rocky move into a mentor role as he trained Adonis, who was looking to follow his late father's footsteps and become a great fighter. Creed was a box office success and earned the best reviews the series had seen in decades, which prompted interest in a sequel. Coogler will not return to direct due to his commitment to Marvel's Black Panther, so Stallone is handling writing and directing responsibilities. Creed 2 will see the return of Dolph Lundgren's Ivan Drago, the villain in Rocky IV who killed Apollo in the ring.

Biopic

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

The film began production under the direction of Bryan Singer in 2017 before Singer was fired for not showing up to set with no explanation for several days. Dexter Fletcher was then brought onboard to oversee the movie during its final weeks of production.
