New Promo of Newt and Jacob in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Posted by Megs

Total Film magazine has released a brand new promotional photo from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that is featured in their new issue. The photo features Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) walking through the streets of 1920s Paris. See the photo in high resolution in the gallery!

Photo of Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski in Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald

The photo in question shows returning magizoologist Newt Scamander (played once again by Eddie Redmayne) alongside trusted Muggle companion Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), striding across the streets of what appears to be 1920s’ Paris (check out the french language signage and bicycle baskets).

It may be a single still, but this pic already throws up several questions about what we can expect from the movie, which has been penned by J.K. Rowling herself. What’s in Jacob’s basket? Why does Newt look so anxious? And what’s brought them to the city of love? Given the title, I reckon another one of those pesky beasts has gotten loose.

You can read more about Fantastic Beasts 2 in this month’s issue of Total Film magazine, on sale December 22. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is currently set for release on November 16, 2018. Three more films will follow it.

Video: JK Rowling and Eddie Redmayne Talk Lumos at Fantastic Beasts Screening
Posted by Megs

This past Saturday we were in attendance at a special screening of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. J.K. Rowling and Eddie Redmayne spoke at the screening to support her charity, Lumos. They shed a light on the very important issue of children being institutionalized at orphanages. Their message of the evening was that if you want to help children donate to community based organizations rather than orphanages.

The special advance screening, of the new Warner Bros. feature film, with box office ticket sales and proceeds from an online sweepstakes going directly to support Lumos’ work, is part of We Are Lumos Worldwide, a global campaign to raise awareness and urge people to get involved with the non-profit organization’s work to bring the 8 million hidden children in orphanages around the world to light, and get them home to families.

Lumos have sent over a short clip from their conversation.

Update: The full video is now available:

Sitting across from each other on the stage of perhaps the most celebrated concert hall in America, before an enthralled sold-out audience, the acclaimed writer and actor talked at length about the work of Lumos in helping children around the world to leave orphanages and institutions and return them to their families.

“We know that children who are raised in institutions suffer developmental delays, that they tend to be physically stunted, they normally have psychological trauma – it is just not what nature intended for children to be herded together and not given individual love and care,” said J.K. Rowling. “This is an entirely solvable issue. Lumos’ ambition – and we believe it’s achievable – is that by 2050, we will have ended institutionalization globally.”

She concluded: “The last thing I would say, particularly to young people in the audience today – I would reiterate that we need to change minds… do a little bit of research, and make sure you are supporting families to stay together.”

The two artists went on to talk about the new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and were joined on stage by director David Yates and cast members Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol, before introducing the film to the nearly 3,000 guests at Carnegie Hall.
