New 2017 Spoiler Policy
 
First, a slight adjustment for a movie’s main thread: no untagged spoilers within four (4) weeks of its North American release. After that point, spoiler discussion is allowed. For other threads (in other words, in all threads except the movie's main thread), no untagged spoilers until the movie is released on home video in North America. "Released on home video" means Digital HD or Bluray/disc, whatever comes first.

 

In a specific movie’s thread, you don’t need to specify what topic you’re spoiling. In general threads, tagged spoilers are fine, as long as you indicate what movie it's for. For example:
 
(INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE spoilers)

Maika Monroe’s scream is powerful enough to destroy alien shields.

 

Note: When a big blockbuster has a special Spoiler thread and another Spoiler-Free thread, spoilers are not allowed in the Spoiler-Free thread at all. The threads will be merged after the 4-week window and at that point it can be treated like a normal thread. This is the same policy we have right now, so people should be familiar with it.
 
Some movies do not have a theatrical release and go straight to VOD, or were produced specifically for streaming services (Netflix, Amazon). For those projects, we will assume a reasonable 2-month "theatrical" window where spoilers will apply. For example, if Netflix releases a movie on Jan. 20, spoilers would need to be tagged until March 20.

 

Suspensions/warnings/bans

Punishments will be up to the discretion of the staff, given the severity of what was spoiled and our interpretation of the intent. Someone who maliciously posts huge un-tagged spoilers for a highly anticipated movie — especially in an un-related thread —risks a long suspension or even a permaban. On the other hand, an excited conversation about a movie where someone accidentally slips too much detail into an answer may only get a PM, points, or a 24-hour suspension.

 

We think these new rules will help everyone, especially when it comes to platform releases around Oscar season and movies that have long international rollouts. That being said, we’re open to feedback and suggestions if someone has an idea they feel would help.

Warner Bros. Entertainment today announced an expanded creative partnership with world-renowned, best-selling author J.K. Rowling. At the center of the partnership is a new film series from Rowling’s world of witches and wizards, inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and the adventures of the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander. The announcement was made by Kevin Tsujihara, Chief Executive Officer, Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Harry Potter” filmmaker David Yates apparently has a few more tricks up his sleeve.

Sources tell Variety that Yates, who directed several Harry Potter movies including the final “Deathly Hallows” pics, has agreed to return for the first installment of the Harry Potter spinoff trilogy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

Lol, they had to find some way of milking more films out of this franchise, I guess.

J.K. rowling is selling out? 

Why? WB is milking the franchise. Rowling made this book for charity years ago.

So it is going to be a period piece set in New York? 70 years before the events in the Harry Potter series would put this in the 1920s. So Art Deco meets the wizarding world? :D Nice!

Seems that with Hobbit franchise coming to an end, only DC Comics' movies are not sufficient for tentpoles. They can't reboot it that soon so they're making spin-offs  :D . 

 

But do people care about this if it's not the story of Harry/Hermione/Ron & co ? Personnaly, I don't

Hmm... So this will be like a action adventure period piece. Sounds interesting, especially if they give this a big budget.

This seems like a far more interesting WB fantasy project than the Hobbit dragology.

The title is definitive ? It seems a bit long and no connection to Harry Potter.

They said this will be a franchise but it's a franchise just with that character or a franchise of spin-offs movies of Harry Potter with various characters/times/locations ?

Not confirmed yet. It would be cool to have a Quidditch-centric movie though!

It would be in the some world as Harry Potter. I would not be surprised if WB wants Dumbledore in this movie.

WB could have a DC superhero film out every year if they gave a damn about their comic book properties. DC fans are crying in their Kool-Aid because they wish the studio would spend the time and money developing Wonder Woman and The Flash that it's pouring into obscure Potter films, Hobbits, Godzilla and the like.
