  1. The second movie made decent money, a disappointment but not a total flop (financially). If WB continued on with the DCEU after numerous failures than its not surprising they'd try and salvage these movies the best they can, there's still money to be made off these despite a lackluster second movie.
  2. I think they will too. There needs to be more innovation in this franchise if they want to stay alive and keeping Yates on just because he did the last few Potter movies is not a foolproof strategy imo. More of the same is not whats needed here and WB is gonna have to swallow their pride and try to course correct the best they can, which they seem to be doing with the DCEU at the moment so all is not lost yet.
  3. I rather enjoyed the Men in Black series thus far, but the trailers for this one just aren't doing it for me. It's looks too "shiny" to me, too much CGI used for the aliens and weapons. The first 3 movies mostly used practical effects and most of the aliens were handmade by using extensive makeup, and suits, where in these trailers all the aliens look too computer generated/cartoony. Besides the chemistry between Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson this movie looks like it's gonna be a dud, below 60% on rotten tomatoes. It might do okay at the box office though, ultimately this movie feels like it will be inconsequential.
  4. Literally nobody is confirmed to return for the third movie yet, filming wont even begin until next year. This is such a pointless non-story. I highly doubt he'll be let go, and Colin Farrell aint coming back, so get over it.
  5. My tin-foil-hat theory is that with Kevin Tsujihara gone, former WB CEO who was the one to get this franchise up and running and who got Rowling on board, WB decided to not make this franchise as much as a priority as he did and thus this delay is them casually pushing it off to the side in favor of other projects. My hope is that they are also considering getting a new director for the third movie because that is definitely needed and could possible reignite some lost interest and bring in new creativity.
  6. Fantastic Beast 3 has November 2021 release date To me this clearly signifies that there is major work being done, whether or not this new delay is purely because of Rowling requesting more time or Warner Brothers planning some creative changes of their own behind the scenes is up for speculation. Hopefully this also means that WB is learning from their mistakes when they tried to rush the DCEU and will now be giving stories the time they need to be fleshed out in the proper way.
  7. Warner Brothers is going to squeeze as much out of these movies as they can, maybe they'll just end up only making four or they might still continue on with the whole 5 no matter what. It's hard to say, the third movie will likely be coming out in 2021 so lots of things could happen between now and then but I'm still interested in seeing where this whole thing ends up.
  8. I really doubt this is true, production for the third movie has been delayed so they won't even begin filming until fall of this year. I could be wrong but it would be rather odd for them to start filming anything right now.
  9. Warner Brothers ceo Kevin Tsujihara to step down Now I believe he is the one mostly responsible for getting this Fantastic Beasts movie series up and running. Now I wonder if this will have any effect on the third movie at all, since last month he made some comments about how they are seeking make improvements to the next installment and how Rowling has been toiling away at crafting this story. Will a new CEO at WB be something that could potentially benefit this franchise in some way? I would like to think so.
  10. At this point I think Rowling just likes messing with people, she's certainly can be snarky and has clapped back at people on twitter in the past. She's not as oblivious as some people think she is.
  11. That’s kinda what she did with the first movie, all new characters and an all new setting. Going forward I hope she goes back to that formula, can certainly work.
  12. That’s too much of a coincidence to be believable imo, too much work to try and justify why this character just has to be related to Dumbledore. It really doesn’t need to be this way.
  13. I really wish they would drop the “Credence is a dumbledore” storyline. The more I think about it the more uneccesary it feels, because I’m 99% sure Grindelwald is lying and I sure hope he is because otherwise how the hell are they going to explain how he knows about any of this. I’m not even sure what message Rowling is trying to convey with this credence story, that you’re only special if you come from a famous family?
  14. I remember reading about that too. Now I'm not sure if Depp will be completely exonerated in the court of public opinion, but maybe now people will see that him and Amber Heards relationship was mutually toxic/abusive, which is what I've suspected for a while.
