1. Batman V Superman is either in trouble or a savior

I think we can all agree that yesterday’s new Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice trailer was pretty dope. But will it be enough to rescue the fortunes of Warner Bros., whose movie slate of late has been a series of costly flops, from Pan to In the Heart of the Sea. It’s common wisdom […]

2. Pottermore Interviews Eddie Redmayne on “Fantastic Beasts” Set

Today, Pottermore released a new interview with Fantastic Beasts leading man, Eddie Redmayne. The interview talked a little of how Eddie came to be Newt Scamander in J.K. Rowling’s new movie series, and some of the characteristics he shares with Newt. For starters, Eddie actually carries his own brief case and it contains important aspects of his life within it.

Pottermore reports:

 

‘This is actually slightly embarrassing…’

Eddie Redmayne is sheepishly telling me the story of meeting Fantastic Beastsdirector David Yates for the first time. There’s a broad, bright smile on his freckled face as he does.

Eddie has a case. A tan leather case just like the one his character Newt Scamander keeps his beasts in…

‘I’ve had it for about eight years. My dad works in the city and has always had a briefcase. I always did this acting thing for a living, which didn’t feel like a proper job and I wanted something that made me feel like I was doing a proper job and so I got this case. I use it whenever I go on set. I keep my script and whatever mementos I find useful in it.’

 

When Eddie met David Yates, and the Harry Potter director was telling him about Newt’s story and his magical brief case, Eddie became a little self-conscious of his brief case, telling Pottermore,

 

‘I said [to David Yates], “I promise I didn’t know about Newt’s case. I didn’t bring this as some sort of weird method audition – like, don’t worry David, I come with my own case!” And I’m afraid it’s still here, it’s still got my life in it. Not quite as much as Newt has in his case, though…’

 

Telling Pottermore of getting the part of Newt after that first meeting with David Yates, Eddie said it wasn’t a matter of him wanting the role, it was a matter of him getting the role. Pottermore reported,

 

‘David has such a lovely manner and this incredible kindness to him. There was no question I wanted to do this movie. For me, it was a question of whether I’d get the gig. When I read J.K. Rowling’s script, I just had my mind blown. I was so excited by it. The amazing thing was that I found it funny, I found it a thriller, I found it romantic. At the end, I was deeply moved by it.’

 

The entire interview may be read here, keep an eye on Pottermore for more Fantastic Harry Potter news coming soon (hopefully).

4. UPDATE: ‘Cursed Child’ Book to be Published in July, and Jim Kay’s Illustrated ‘Chamber of Secrets’ Announced!

Following speculations, Pottermore and Little Brown UK have just announced that the script book for Cursed Child will be released July 31st (Harry Potter / J.K. Rowling’s birthday)!

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 14.27.39 Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 14.27.52 Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 14.28.00

Pottermore reports:

A host of new print and digital publishing has been announced from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, including a Special Rehearsal Edition of the script book of new stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II. 

Print and digital editions will publish simultaneously after the play’s world premiere this summer, and will comprise of the version of the play script at the time of the play’s preview performances. 

Theatre previews allow the creative team the chance to rehearse and explore scenes further before a production’s official opening night. Harry Potter and the Cursed Childopens for previews several weeks before its official first performance on Saturday 30 July and the Special Rehearsal Edition of the script book will later be replaced by a Definitive Collector’s Edition.

The news confirms that fans around the world will be able to join this next venture into the Wizarding World, so don’t fret if you didn’t get tickets to the play!

Pottermore also announced the release of Special Editions, and Jim Kay’s next illustrated edition of Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets!:

Next year will see the publication of four special editions of the first book in the UK, one for each of the four Hogwarts houses. There will also be a brand new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2017, with new content by J.K. Rowling, as well as new formats and editions of the Hogwarts Library books – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. 

Pottermore doesn’t play favourites, but we’re especially looking forward to nabbing a copy of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets illustrated by Jim Kay. That’s coming a little sooner, in October 2016, and we’ll be prodding Jim for a look at his latest work soon because we’re nosy like that.

2016 is looking like a huge year – Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts, more Jim Kay illustrations – what more could we want?!

7. Deadpool news round-up: Times kicks off Liefeld/Nicieza tussle; Todd Klein studies the logo

The New York times profiled Rob Liefeld this weekend, and along the way, Liefeld was quoted as making some rather unflattering comments about his fellow Deadpool co-creator Fabian Niceiza. He is prickly, though, about sharing creator credit on Deadpool with Fabian Nicieza, who wrote the script for the character’s first appearance, based on Mr. Liefeld’s […]

13. New Trailer for Matt Lewis’s “Me Before You”

USA Today released the exclusive first trailer of Matt Lewis’s (Neville Longbottom) new film, Me Before You. The film stars Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin in the film adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ novel. Matt plays a character named Patrick, Lou’s (Clarke) small-town steady boyfriend before she goes and works for Will (Claflin).

Though Matt’s “obsessed with with sports and diet” character isn’t featured in the new trailer, which focuses solely on the leading protagonists, but it looks like a great spring break flick and we can’t wait to see Matt on the silver screen. The movie premieres March 4.

25. Matthew Lewis Teases Appearance in ‘Fantastic Beasts’

In an interview with MTV promoting his role in the new series of Ripper Street (available on Amazon Instant Video in the UK), Matthew Lewis – we assume jokingly – teased at making a cameo in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, following a visit to the set of the film earlier this week:

‘In terms of a cameo, maybe.

Isn’t this set years before? Isn’t Neville like, minus seventy?’

‘I know what he’s up to, because Jo told me. I don’t know if he’s going to be in the play, but in terms of the world, he’s a teacher at Hogwarts teaching his beloved Herbology. Professor Longbottom’

He said that he was very excited to see Fantastic Beasts, especially as David Heyman and David Yates are leading its Production and Directing teams.

On the process of filming the Harry Potter series, and on questions of him returning to work on any future Potter projects he said:

‘I loved it. It was an important part of my life, but after ten years, I’m not sure how much more I can really do with it … As an actor, we love becoming different people – finding that person to begin with is so much fun, that process, and as much as you love taking a beloved character places,  it’s kind of like when you first go on a date with a girl. That excitement, that buzz of first getting to know each other … after ten years that’s not necessarily there anymore, and fortunately as actors we don’t have to be monogamous with our roles – we can do other roles and find that buzz again’

Matt says he has enjoyed filming ‘wildly different’ characters from Neville, and is loving the process of working on Ripper Street. Make sure you catch it on Amazon Instant Video, and watch a trailer here.
