It was only a matter of time before the makers of Playmobil took a look at those LEGO Movie box office numbers and said: “Why not us?” The figures, which originated in Germany, are kind of like LEGOs, but with a lot fewer pieces. And now they have their own movie! In Playmobil: The Movie, a pair of siblings end up being turned into the tiny plastic toys, and getting sucked into their world. Watch the Playmobil: The Movie trailer below.

Though they might not be huge hits in the ratings department, TBS has curated some fantastic comedies with incredible talent in recent years. Along with their consistently great late night presence featuring Conan O’Brien and Samantha Bee, they’ve also had outstanding shows like Detour, Wrecked, Search Party, Angie Tribeca, and The Final Space. But their latest offering looks like it takes things to another level.
Miracle Workers is a new series on TBS, and it’s certainly sacrilegious. The show focuses on Steve Buscemi as God, and he has a plan to destroy the Earth, but two angels from the offices of Heaven Inc. tried to convince him otherwise. It just so happens that one of those angels is Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe. How is this a TBS series?! Read More »
Daniel Radcliffe just went and got himself in over his head in the Beast of Burden trailer. The film (not to be confused with the Rolling Stones song) features Radcliffe as a man pushed to extremes to help save his wife. Lots of expository dialogue follows. Watch the Beast of Burden trailer below.

In the years since Daniel Radcliffe finished the Harry Potter franchise, the British actor has taken on a wide variety of intriguing roles. Having made enough money from the series that made him famous, he’s free to take on roles that are truly unique and interest him as an artist rather than being desperate to keep acting for a paycheck. Another one of those movies is coming this fall.
Jungle is adapted from Yossi Ghinsberg‘s memoir of the same name, following the Israeli backpacker in the 1980s as he ends up stranded in the Amazon jungle after an excursion goes terribly wrong, leaving them at the mercy of the wilderness. Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ghinsberg, the the first trailer shows him encountering all sorts of terrifying scenarios in the jungle. It looks like a harrowing story of survival to say the least.

A few days ago, the news broke that Warner Bros. is developing a movie that would explore the origin story for The Joker. And while this Todd Phillips-drected, Martin Scorsese-produced project (!) sounds like a profoundly bad idea on many levels, it got the /Film staff talking. Who would you cast as the young version of Batman’s arch-nemesis? And more specifically, who would you cast as the young Joker in a movie that will be a standalone film unconnected to the larger DCEU and therefore untethered to Jared Leto’s performance in Suicide Squad?
So we put our brains together and came up with 14 names. These are not the actors that we think would actually be cast as a young Joker. Instead, these are the actors we’d like to see cast as a young Joker. After all, if they’re going to make this movie, they might as well cast someone interesting in the lead.

The Boy Who Lived is ready to die, at least if it means he gets to go to Westeros. Over the past six seasons, Game of Thrones has cast a huge number of British actors — young and old, obscure and world-famous — and now Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe wants in as well. Even (or maybe especially) if it means meeting a grisly end onscreen. Read More »

The Harry Potter books and film series may be over, but J.K. Rowling‘s Wizarding World continues to live on. There are the short stories and essays published on Pottermore. There is the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which explores this familiar universe in a different time and place. And then there is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the ambitious stage play sequel to the original series currently dominating the London theater scene that Warner Bros. says won’t get a film adaptation anytime soon (but go ahead and ask them again in ten years).
So when someone asks film series star, Daniel Radcliffe, if he’d be willing to reprise his role as Harry Potter for a new movie, it’s all theoretical. But let’s face it – chances are strong you’re curious about what he says. It’s okay. You’re only human, and a Muggle at that.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Update: Warner Bros has released the following statement in response to these reports: “’Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film.”
Back in July, Warner Bros. Pictures filed a trademark for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. This might not seem surprising since the film studio was the distributor of every single film in the Harry Potter franchise, as well as the upcoming spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. However, Warner Bros. has absolutely nothing to do with the stage production of the play in the United Kingdom, which was also just published as a book at the end of last month. So having them file a trademark for motion pictures, merchandise and more seemed rather unnecessary, unless of course they were actually planning to make a movie.
Now a new rumor seems to indicate that Warner Bros. Pictures would like to turn Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into a film trilogy that they hope to begin as early as 2020. In addition, they want to bring franchise star Daniel Radcliffe back in the lead role. Find out more about the proposed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie trilogy after the jump. Read More »

You’ve gotta hand it to Daniel Radcliffe. While he’ll probably always best be known for playing the Boy Who Lived, he’s made some really interesting and eclectic choices post-Harry Potter. You can currently see him playing a tech whiz in Now You See Me 2 and a farting corpse in Swiss Army Man, and next we’ll see him as a fake white supremacist in Imperium.
Based on a true story, Imperium stars Radcliffe as an idealistic FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a radical right-wing terrorist group. It’s a darker, grittier role than we’ve seen Radcliffe tackle in the past, and it requires him to bust out his American accent. Is he up for the challenge? Find out with the Imperium trailer below.
