FANTASTIC BEASTS 2: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD featuring lead star Eddie Redmayne and also Jude Law. The movie which is out next November continues the story after the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by 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. Hopefully this one ain’t as ghastly bad and boring as the first one!

The Fantastic Beasts has been imagined as the five movie series

Into the Woods

Into the Woods 2014

A new Disney Christmas Classic?  In theaters Dec 25th.

Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp and others


Set in an alternate world of various Grimm fairy tales, the film intertwines the plots of several Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, and “Cinderella”, as well as several others. When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed childless by a Witch, they must embark into the woods to find the objects required to break the spell and begin a family. The film is tied together to the original story of the baker and his wife and, their interaction with the Witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy musical eventually becomes a meaningful tale about responsibility, the problems and consequences that come from wishes, and the legacy that we leave our children.
