“Transgender women are women.” That’s the (correct) personal stance of former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who has written a brief essay responding to a series of tweets written this past weekend by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling which argue the contrary. Radcliffe’s support of the trans community prove once again that he’s a good dude, and in addition to that, his words about grappling with the stance of an auteur behind a popular piece of fiction are applicable in multiple cases across lots of different forms of media.

Daniel Radcliffe will always be thankful for his time spent leading the Harry Potter franchise, but the actor is undoubtedly happy to have moved on from the wizarding world. The multi-billion dollar franchise has afforded him a lot of freedom to take on whatever roles he wants, whether it’s a peculiar indie like Swiss Army Man or a wild action thriller Guns Akimbo. But in these uncertain times, Daniel Radcliffe realizes everyone needs a little inspiration, which is why he’s taken the time to get involved with the Harry Potter at Home initiative with a new reading of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Daniel Radcliffe escaped the threat of Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise, and since then, his career has been on an eclectic path. The actor has appeared in movies like the dark comedic thriller Horns, the indie romantic comedy What If, the oddball Sundance selected Swiss Army Man, the TBS anthology comedy series Miracle Workers, and the upcoming bonkers-looking Guns Akimbo coming next month. But this year will also see Daniel Radcliffe breaking out of a maximum security prison, and you can see how in the Escape from Pretoria trailer below. Read More »
In Guns Akimbo, Daniel Radcliffe plays a loser who wakes up with guns physically bolted to his hands (yes, really). Not only that, but his character is tasked with killing an assassin on a live-streamed internet show.
Points for originality must go to writer/director Jason Lei Howden for this deranged-looking movie. If happen to have spent the last few minutes considering if you should take a swig of Red Bull to get a jolt of energy, maybe just watch this new trailer instead – it’ll probably have the desired effect.

The first season of Miracle Workers focused on Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni as employees in heaven trying to stop God (Steve Buscemi) from destroying Earth. Now the show is returning for a second season, but since it was crafted as an anthology series, it’s going in a completely different direction and has absolutely nothing to do with the story from the first season. But not everything is different.
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages takes the same cast from the first season and turns them into medieval villagers just trying to get by in one of the most difficult and dark periods in human history. Needless to say, things are pretty bleak when people get excited to watch someone get killed in the middle of the village square. Watch the Miracle Workers: Dark Ages trailer for a glimpse.

“You like this?!” asks Daniel Radcliffe’s Miles to a covert camera live streaming his misfortunate adventures as he fights for his life. It’s a breaking point for him as a character in Guns Akimbo, and he launches into quite the screed about the cowardice of the viewers who cheer on imperiling people from behind the remove of their screen but could never face a similar situation in their own lives. In a smarter movie, Miles might also be addressing us, the audience, with his impassioned rant. After all, haven’t we, too, been watching his plight voyeuristically and getting a kick out of his misery?

Here’s one way to make sure film marketing piques my interest: completely change approaches from one trailer to the next in the hopes of obscuring a movie’s actual premise. I honestly wouldn’t have given a second thought to the animated feature Playmobil: The Movie after seeing its first trailer, but today’s new one got my attention for the way it hides the premise explored the first time around. The film even has a brand new official synopsis which also tries to shield its actual plot. See what I mean below.

I must admit that while watching fresh-faced young actor Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter film franchise, he never struck me as someone with exceptional potential in comedy. But since graduating from Hogwarts, Radcliffe has proven me wrong time and again – and now he’ll be able to show off his comedy chops once again for Netflix.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the Netflix original comedy that was cancelled after four seasons, is coming back next year with an interactive episode similar to what we saw in Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and Radcliffe is coming along for the ride. Read More »
