The final trailer of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is on the verge of coming and the excitement among the fans is at its peak. The film is directed by David Yates and the wait for this movie will not be a long one as it’s going to be released on November 16, 2018. The movie is going to take the story further of the first movie. As we saw at the end of the first film, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But making good on his threat, clever Grindelwald escaped the custody of MACUSA and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda, of raising wizards and witches to rule over all non-magical beings.
But in an attempt to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help Dumbledore but wasn’t aware of the dangers lying ahead in front of him. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested in a period of time when even the families and friends turned their back on the face of each other.
So, the movie is going to unfold a lot of interesting stories and to increase the chaos among the hearts of fans. The official UK account on Twitter of the film has shared some posters of their major characters and also wrote something interesting as the caption of every image they posted. All the shared posters are listed below. Eddie Redmayne (returns as Newt Scamander) has expressed his thoughts in the storyline for the upcoming movie by saying,
“What’s happened is Grindelwald’s belief that purebloods should reign over all non-magical beings is a political thing. He’s rallying more and more people and it causes divisions across families. He’s pretty hypnotic. Also, when I read the script, it has these cryptic elements to it and it played like a thriller that made it a page-turner,” the actor explained.
Here are the new posters. Have a look:
The second installment of the movie is getting a good hype because of the success of the first film ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The movie was the first movie of the Fantastic Beasts film series, and the ninth overall in the Wizarding world franchise, that began with the Harry Potter films.
The first movie grossed $234 million in the United States and Canada, $580 million in other countries for a total of $814 million. The film was made on a budget of $180 million and considering the business it had, you should seriously praise the efforts of the whole team and also can able to see the fan following of Wizarding World in this world. This marked the second time after Doctor Strange that a film is secured a release in over 1,000 IMAX screens worldwide.
The film only wasn’t a success in terms of money only as the movie was also nominated for five BAFTAs including Best British Film, Best Production Design, Academy Awards, Best Costume Design, and also became the first Wizarding World film to win an Academy Award.
The expectations are high and also the support for the film is quite good so all they need to do is to define their characters perfectly because if this movie doesn’t provide the story like the first one had then it’s going to be very tough for the makers to turn up the crowd for their next installment of the Wizarding world.
Initially, in October 2014, the studio announced there would be a Fantastic Beasts Trilogy. In June 2016, David Yates confirmed that Rowling had written the screenplay for the second film and already had some ideas for the third installment. The third film is set to be released on November 20, 2020. J.K. Rowling began this five-film series in October 2016.
A lot of questions were being raised upon selecting Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald from the fans but the storm has been silenced after the support shown by Rowling and many others. Now everything depends on the film and the last trailer before the film which is going to release soon.
SO, are you excited for the film and do you think the movie can replicate the success of the first film?
