As the new year approaches, it’s time to start looking at the incredible line-up of films 2018 has to offer, starting with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald.
In its upcoming 2018 preview, Empire Magazine has revealed a new look at Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) in the next Fantastic Beasts film. In the image, the two heroes are standing side by side, although their attention seems to be firmly fixed on something off camera. Looking at their worried expressions, I would guess that Newt and Tina just stumbled upon something sinister. A new beast, perhaps?
Check out the image below:
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, and Claudia Kim. The film is scheduled for release on November 16, 2018.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
