When the first Fantastic Beasts film came out in 2016, I expressed my enjoyment of the film overall but criticized the overall tone and story structure. The main plot, which saw Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander hunt down missing beasts in 1926 New York felt weak and uninspired. Remember that Central Park scene? I wish I couldn’t. But the film was set against a much more interesting B plot, one full of dark wizards, infiltrators and dark magical and it looks like that’s where the magic will happen in the film’s sequel, Crimes of Grindelwald. Warner Bros unveiled a teaser trailer today and the film looks much more like something out of the Wizarding World than the first one ever did!
Remember back at E3 2013 when Microsoft announced a live action Halo TV series for it’s Xbox platform? Yeah, you’ll be forgiven if you forgot about it, or for that matter, never heard about it. But despite the laughable delay in production, it seems Steven Spielberg and his production company, Amblin, are moving ahead with the show and have set a filming date!
Mario and Nintendo had an extremely successful 2017, thanks to the release of Mario Odyssey on the Switch. But the fun doesn’t end there for the popular video game studio-or its lead mascot. It was confirmed today that the video game giant Nintendo will be partnering with Illumination Studios, the minds behind Despicable Me, Minions and the upcoming Grinch reboot, to give us a new film starring our favorite Italian plumber.
At Cinemacon, producer J.J. Abrams offered an update about “Overlord” to audiences. While the cast, director and plot summary remain in tact, Abrams denies that his upcoming historical horror film is part of the Cloverfield universe. Now, this could all be a ruse to distract audiences but Abrams did say that a proper Cloverfield sequel would be hitting the big screen “soon” and that Overlord is very much it’s own, R rated thing (an apparent first for Bad Robot). So why the sudden shift? It could be that Overlord was never meant to be part of the sci-fi universe that is Cloverfield, or that the poor reception to The Cloverfield Paradox has Abrams and company shifting the attention of this movie away from the franchise for the time being. Time will (maybe) tell.

It’s no secret that the Superbowl, one of the biggest nights in sports attracts more than just football fans. One of the biggest appeals of the final game of the NFL’s season is the high budget exclusive commercials that play alongside the game-and first looks at the biggest upcoming films are part of that allure. While we’re all pretty certain we’ll get trailers for the likes of Mission Impossible 6: Fallout, Avengers, Solo and maybe even Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, another film may debut its long-awaited trailer.
