Today, Warner Bros. took a machine gun to the movie release calendar and shot flags into 11 dates spread over the next six and a half years.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

With all the hype surrounding the new Harry Potter theme park expansion at Universal Studios Orlando, it would have been odd not to include an easter egg or two. Turns out, one of those park teases is from the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Check out the image below, and read about where the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie – written by J.K. Rowling herself – will shoot. Read More »

Alfonso Cuaron Gravity

One of the most exciting rumors in recent days was that Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón might direct the 2016 Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Cuarón is largely credited with setting the tone and visuals for the Potter film franchise with this one installment, 2004′s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. That film radically changed the look of the world and informed the directors who followed the series to completion.

So the rumor of Cuarón maybe stepping back into that world for this spin-off, written by J.K. Rowling herself, was a very enticing one. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Read More »

He’s reportedly “deep in talks” to direct the first spin-off film, which is scripted by J.K. Rowling and scheduled for a 2016 release.  Read More »
