About “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie 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 (Jude 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.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling.  The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.  Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

NEW “CREED II” POSTER SHOWS ROCKY IN ADONIS’ CORNER

Creed II

Warner Bros. Pictures has just released the new one-sheet art for “Creed II” highlighting the unbreakable bond between Rocky and Adonis Creed.

Check out the poster below and watch the film in Philippine cinemas November 28.

About “Creed II”

In “Creed II,” life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. “Creed II” is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

Directed by Steven Caple Jr., written by Sylvester Stallone and Cheo Hodari Coker (“Luke Cage”) and taking direct inspiration from Ryan Coogler‘s 2015 “Creed,” ”Creed II” will see Michael B. Jordan return as Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed, to continue his training under Rocky Balboa (Stallone) in order to prep for what’s sure to be a brutal fight against Vitor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). Tessa Thompson also returns as Adonis’ love interest, Bianca, and Coogler is on board as an executive producer.

“Creed II” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
Actress Mackenzie Foy, star of Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” celebrates the film’s sneak peek with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse at Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, Calif., Oct. 4, 2018. A 12-minute preview of “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” begins Friday, Oct. 5, at Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, Calif. and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Joshua Sudock/Disneyland Resort)

Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” stars teen actress Mackenzie Foy (“Interstellar,” “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”) as Clara, an intelligent 14-year-old with a penchant for science.

Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale and “The Nutcracker,” the big-screen adventure showcases the wondrous journey of Clara, who finds herself in the mystical world of the Four Realms, home to a host of eccentric characters and no shortage of surprises.

According to screenwriter Ashleigh Powell, Clara isn’t really comfortable in her skin. “She’s kind of a fish out of water,” says Powell. “She doesn’t fit into the normal stereotypes of a Victorian girl—she’s not interested in fancy dresses and the like. She’s more of a tomboy. She likes creating and building and figuring out how things work. In that respect, she’s very similar to her godfather, Drosselmeyer, so they’re kindred spirits.”

But Clara struggles with the recent passing of her mother. “It’s the first Christmas that her family is spending without Marie,” says Powell. “And her mother has left behind Christmas presents for Clara and her siblings, which sets everything into motion.”

Clara receives an egg-shaped music box with a note that reads, “Everything you need is inside.” But the box is locked and, surprisingly, there is no key. Clara is disappointed and confused, but determined to unlock the music box and the secrets it holds. Her confusion persists until a golden thread, presented to her at her grandfather’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. She is welcomed with open arms by the regents, particularly Sugar Plum Fairy, who confides that she was once very close with Marie.

But this strange new world is not whole. It is scarred with past conflict—one regent is in exile, her realm forgotten and crawling with mice who serve as her soldiers. Clara and Phillip must brave this ominous Fourth Realm, home to the regent-turned-tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.

Says director Lasse Hallström, “Clara learns through the course of the story that she’s worthy of trusting herself and worthy of being herself.”

Mackenzie Foy brings the character to life. “Clara is a very complex person,” says Foy. “She has all these different emotions—she’s hurting, but she doesn’t want people to see that. She’s also an outcast for being an intelligent young woman in a Victorian society. She doesn’t yet realize what a wonderful thing that is.”

“Mackenzie is a brilliant young actress,” adds Hallström. “She’s so alive, she’s technically brilliant and she has impeccable instincts.”

“The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” opens in Philippine cinemas October 31, 2018.

Imagine Dragons, whose single “Natural” has spent eight weeks at No. 1 Alternative radio, appear in the arcade-based video (watch for the Disney Easter Eggs). In the movie, video-game bad guy Ralph struggles with his evolving friendship with fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. According to Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song “Zero.” “They are compelling because they are real to each of us, personally,” said Reynolds. “That journey of feeling like nothing and trying to realize and recognize your worth as a human is an important part of life. And given the distorted version of reality kids face online and the expectations that come with it, this struggle is real for so many people right now.”

Dave Meyers directed the music video. Meyers was recently recognized at the Video Music Awards for video of the year (“Havana” by Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug), best pop video (“No Tears Left to Cry” by Ariana Grande) and best visual effects (“All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar ft. SZA). 

Featuring singles “Natural” and “Zero,” Imagine Dragons will release their fourth studio album, “Origins,” on Nov. 9 via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. “Origins” is available for pre-order HERE and can be purchased in a variety of formats and bundles HERE. 

“Zero” will also be featured on Walt Disney Records’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack—the digital album is available Nov. 16. Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens Nov. 21, 2018.

About How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown…and how nothing can ever train you to let go.  What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic adventure spanning their lives.  Welcome to the most astonishing chapter of one of the most beloved animated franchises in film history: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Now chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia.  When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth.  As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together—to the very ends of the Earth—to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure.

For How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, series director Dean DeBlois returns alongside the all-star cast led by Jay Baruchel (This Is the End), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Cate Blanchett (The House with a Clock in Its Walls, Thor: Ragnarok), Gerard Butler (Den of Thieves, Geostorm), Kristen Wiig (Ghostbusters), Craig Ferguson (Doc Martin), and F. Murray Abraham (Homeland) as the villain Grimmel.

The film is produced by Brad Lewis (Ratatouille, ANTZ) and How to Train Your Dragon series producer Bonnie Arnold (Toy Story, Tarzan).
