Eddie Redmayne Will Not Be The Lead Character In Future ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Films

Published

on

With five films confirmed – all of which will be directed by David Yates – it’s a sure bet that Redmayne will be reprising his role for several years to come.

However, it’s been suggested that he won’t be the focus of all future outings.

Speaking about the franchise, producer David Heyman told CinemaBlend“I don’t think [Newt will be at] the heart of all of them. I think he’ll be part – so will Tina, Queenie and Jacob – will be part of the next one.”

Elaborating, he continued: “I’ve heard that Dumbledore has been confirmed, too. And Credence and Grindelwald. I think they will be the main players.”

Introducing a character only to sideline them in future instalments is an intriguing prospect, even if Fantastic Beasts does make an attempt to set up plot strands that’ll undoubtedly have the microscope placed upon them in sequels to come.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them boasts an ensemble cast including Katharine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Carmen Ejogo and, in a brief cameo as Dumbledore’s lover-turned-adversary Grindelwald, Johnny Depp.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

First ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Trailer Is An Atomic Blast

Published

on

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
