The new trailer gives us another glimpse of the upcoming prequel.
Eddie Redmayne gives us a better look at his character Newt Scamander in the new trailer for 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them', where we learn of his expulsion from Hogwarts and discover some of the secrets of his mysterious briefcase.
Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts
As you no doubt already know, 'Fantastic Beasts' is a spin-off tale from Jk Rowling's Harry Potter series and based on her book of the same name which is also a textbook used by Harry and his friends in their first year at Hogwarts, listing the various magical creatures of the wizarding world and the amount of risk they pose if encountered. Following his stint on the last four Harry Potter movies, David Yates returns as director, while this also marks Rowling's screenwriting debut. It's the first in a trilogy which will continue in 2018 and 2020.
Long before Harry Potter - or his parents - took up residence at Hogwarts, there was a student called Newt Scamander. An inquisitive boy who was constantly on the lookout for new magical creatures found himself being expelled from the school for endangering the lives of the pupils. Though Newt was expelled for his actions, a certain teacher going by the name of Albus Dumbledore stuck up for the young wizard.
Fantastic Films And When To Find Them...
This year is turning out to be an exciting year for the film industry. With all the award shows over and done with for 2015, we're keeping tabs on some of the major pictures of 2016 to see what's in store for next year's Oscars. Looks like there's some serious competition.
So far, among the major releases we've had are 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', 'Deadpool', 'Hail, Caesar!', 'Zootopia' and '10 Cloverfield Lane'. That is literally the tip of a very large iceberg for what 2016 has to bring to screens this year.
Here are 20 more you need to watch out for:
This time it was the turn of A-list Hollywood stars to find out how twitter really feels about them.
With awards season about to reach its peak at Sunday’s Oscars, Hollywood’s A-listers are probably feeling pretty good about themselves right now. But trust twitter to bring their self-esteem down a notch, with the latest edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’s’ Mean Tweets- Movie Edition.
George Clooney took part in the latest edition of ‘Mean Tweets’.
First up was two-time Oscar winner Christopher Waltz, who had to suffer the indignity of one twitter user having no idea who he was. ‘I have no idea who Christopher Waltz is,’ the tweeter wrote. ’But he is pretty f’n boring so I am probably not going to bother finding out’.
The Oscar winner said he spent most of 2015 without a smartphone.
Eddie Redmayne has revealed he spent most of last year without a smartphone, instead preferring to use an old-fashioned analogue handset. The Oscar winning actor ditched his smartphone in an attempt to ‘live in the moment’, after finding that he spent too much time glued to his iPhone screen.

Speaking to The Independent, Redmayne said: “I tried switching back to a simple, old-fashioned handset in place of a smartphone. It was a reaction against being glued permanently to my iPhone during waking hours.”

It’s the awards season list that no actor wants to find themselves on, the Golden Raspberry Award nominations.
This year’s Golden Raspberry Award nominations have been released, with Fifty Shades of Grey and Jupiter Ascending leading the pack. The annual awards celebrate the very worst in movies over the past year and two films have picked up six nominations each, including Worst Picture and Worst Director.
Fifty Shades Of Grey has received six Golden Raspberry Award nominations.
Fifty Shades Of Grey’s stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson also both picked up nominations for Worst Actor and Worst Actress, respectively. The couple also jointly picked up a nomination for Worst Screen Combo.
After his Oscar-winning performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne is once again gaining awards attention for another film about a real person.
The Danish Girl tells the story of Einar Wegener, the first person to undergo gender-reassignment surgery, becoming Lili Elbe. Eddie Redmayne committed to the role several years ago, while he was making Les Miserables with director Tom Hooper. "The process of preparing for the film was a huge education for me," he says. "The whole story was new to me, and I found it to be a passionate and incredibly unique love story about the lives of two extraordinary women. It moved me profoundly."
The two women in the story are Lili and Gerda (played by Alicia Vikander), Einar's wife who supported Lili through various operations. "What was wonderful was there was so much source material," Redmayne says. "There were photographs of Lili and Gerda, but also the paintings by Gerda of Lili. Then you have Man Into Woman, a book that was published after Lili's death. And of course you also have contemporary trans experience and all the many women who I met in preparation."
