‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ trailer reveals Jude Law’s young Albus Dumbledore

Published

on

There aren’t very many beasts to behold in the first teaser trailer for David Yates’ highly anticipated sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, but that’s alright because this trailer’s main job is actually to introduce us to Jude Law’s young Albus Dumbledore (a.k.a. Hot Dumbledore Who Doesn’t Fuck), and it does just that.

The latest adventure in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World picks up just after the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and finds Dumbledore enlisting his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to help him thwart Gellert Grindelwald’s (Johnny Deep, ugh) plan to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

Perhaps my lack of interest in the Harry Potter franchise as a whole is what’s preventing me from being 100% sold on this trailer, but I will say that this appears to be a significant improvement over the first Fantastic Beasts film and I’m rather curious to see where Rowling decides to take this particular story.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald features an ensemble cast which also includes Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech. The film opens in theaters on November 16.

The riveting new trailer for ‘First Man’ features an iconic speech from President John F. Kennedy

First Man Ryan Gosling
UNIVERSAL PICTURES

Fresh off its premieres at Venice and Toronto in recent weeks, Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for Damien Chazelle’s upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, which finds the Oscar-winning director reteaming with his La La Land star Ryan Gosling for one of the biggest contenders of the awards season.

Based on James R. Hansen’s prizewinning 2005 book, First Man tells the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land on the moon, focusing on Armstrong’s life between the years of 1961 and 1969, and explores the sacrifices and the cost, on both Armstrong and on the nation, of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

What makes this new trailer so effective is that it doesn’t use any dialogue from the film (save for Gosling’s recreation of Armstrong’s famous first words on the moon at the very end), but rather President John F. Kennedy’s infamous 1962 “We choose to go to the moon” speech while it showcases some jaw-dropping imagery from the film.

Also notable about our latest look at the film is the presence of the American flag, featured in several shots throughout the trailer, which is certainly not a coincidence after some in conservative media and politics manufactured outrage earlier this month spreading a false claim that the flag had been omitted from the movie.

Written by Spotlight and The Post scribe Josh Singer, First Man also stars Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Patrick Fugit, Corey Stoll, and Kyle Chandler, and will open in theaters and IMAX on October 12. You can check out the newly released trailer below.

A new ‘Beautiful Boy’ trailer has Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell coming for their Oscars

Beautiful Boy
FRANCOIS DUHAMEL/AMAZON STUDIOS

Amazon Studios has released a new trailer for Felix Van Groeningen’s upcoming addiction drama Beautiful Boy, an adaptation of the best-selling pair of memoirs written by David and Nic Sheff. The film stars Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet and premiered to relatively positive reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.

According to the film’s official synopsis, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. Chalamet plays Nic Sheff, a meth-addicted young man, while Carell plays David Sheff, the father struggling to understand his son’s addiction.

Chalamet, who became the youngest Best Actor in the 90-year history of the Academy Awards for his outstanding performance in last year’s incredibly moving gay coming-of-age tale Call Me by Your Name, will undoubtedly earn another Oscar nomination next year for Beautiful Boy, as will Carell, as evidenced by the pull quotes that so frequently show up in the new trailer.

“It will be different just by way of the subject matter, it’s heavy, heavy stuff in such a way that Call Me Your Name isn’t,” Chalamet told Josh Horowitz on an episode of MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast last December. “It’s not an upper of a film,” he added.

Beautiful Boy also stars Golden Globe-winner Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan, who starred opposite Carell on the hit TV series The Office for a number of seasons, as Vicki Sheff, Nic’s mother. The film will hit theaters next month on October 12. You can check out the newly released trailer below.

The Grinch
ILLUMINIATION

Illumination and Universal Pictures have released a new trailer for The Grinch, a new animated take on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. The film features the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular scrooge, Ariel Winter as Cindy Lou Hou, Angela Lansbury as the Mayor of Whoville, and Pharell Williams as the story’s narrator.

The latest trailer for the film further reveals how the Grinch and his band of misfits, which includes his loyal dog Max and a lackadaisical reindeer, plan to steal Christmas after the Whos declare they are going to make the holiday three times bigger this year. As you could probably imagine, though, things don’t exactly go according to plan.

The trailer for the film also offers a preview of “I am the Grinch,” the original song written and performed by Tyler, the Creator, who also collaborated with composer Danny Elfman for a new version of the classic Christmas song and iconic Grinch theme “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”

Written by Michael LeSieur and Tommy Swerdlow, The Grinch was directed by Scott Mosier and Yarrow Cheney and also features the voices of Rashida Jones, Keenan Thompson, and Cameron Seely in unspecified roles. The film will open in theaters just in time for the holidays on November 9. You can check out the newly released trailer below.
