From a determined point of view, it is difficult to deny the intense and unbeatable popularity of Harry Potter franchise A series of seven books by British author J.K. Rowling created a successful series of eight films, with a large number of British and emblematic actors who started the races of their new trends. And those movies and books have led to theme park attractions around the world, and now a new movie franchise, the Fantasies beasts series But Fantasy beasts: The crimes of Grindelwald – The second entry, opening this weekend – presents an enigma. In the same way that the film deals with characters that choose the sides between the dark and the light, a Fantasies beasts The series seems to have the same question for fans: do you have enough fans to enter into these films, or do they make them away?
Rowling, who wrote the film, promised that this is just the second of a five-movie franchise, which gives birth to a background story / mythology that includes characters that were mentioned without being fully embodied in the original Harry Potter novels There's Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), the awkward, tortuous author of a book called Fantasias beasts and where to find them, that Harry Potter and his friends would name-would be checked as students at the Hogwarts School for Bruxeria and Magic. And, as a more appropriate introduction to the second film was made, there is the dark assistant Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), who tries to provoke a world led by a magician, in which the dominators of all powers dominate Muggles (known in the prequel spin- offs like "non-majs"). Grindelwald, as mythology goes, once controlled Elder Wand, who comes into play at the end Harry Potter novel, until it was defeated by another that a new Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) in 1945.
Depending on your mileage, you can worry or excite yourself The crimes of Grindelwald It takes place mainly in 1927, which suggests that the confrontation of Dumbledore-Grindelwald is a long and long way. This new movie, directed by Potter David David Yates, is all in fan-service-and in the place of a story. Some of the references and surprises can appeal to you specifically if you understand where they fit into the greatest mythology. To find out: Dumbledore gives Newt information in a safe home in Paris that the young man has to make fun of during a mission to find the mysterious Barebone of Credence (Ezra Miller). Eventually, Newt and his friends Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) and Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) need a safe home, so they only appear to find their owner: neither more nor less than that of Nicolas Flamel. Hard admirers will recognize that Flamel is a key figure Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone, although its presence here is mainly used as a joke. (When Jacob shakes Flamel's hand, the oldest man can: because you see, it's so old that walking is a challenge for him).
Perhaps the biggest fan-service case is about Credence, a character introduced in the first Fantasies beasts movie At least the way in which Rowling created this universe, Credence is perhaps his most important player. Grindelwald – first when he was disguised as an American magician and still in this film – believes that Credence can provoke a time of powerful witchcraft that witches and witches may have dominion over humans. And the good wizards who hunt credence believe that it needs to be destroyed or that their magic can cause a reversal of fortune. Everything is linked to a very important question: who is it Credence, really? Of course, because of its intense magical powers, this type is not just a random American orphanage. Throughout much of this film 134 too long minutes, almost all the characters discuss the rumors of the birth of Credence. For a time, the suggestion is that he is still the brother of Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz), who previously was dead. When Leta lance reveals that he inadvertently killed his brother, that rumor becomes dead in the water. After an ardent climax where Grindelwald attacks a large number of magicians from the Ministry of Magic, he convinces some of the pre-existing characters, including Credence, to join him. There, trust your Credential truthful name: Aurelio Dumbledore.
Yes, really: Albus Dumbledore has another brother, which has never been discussed before. (Or, conversely, Grindelwald is lying to Credence. Everything is possible!). This reveals that the fanatics of the crowd who have wondered about the good magician for years and the depths of their characterization can excite. But it is also likely to be the most casual Harry Potter fanatics, like the whole movie alienates fanatics who care less about mythological debris Potter-version And while it is noble for Rowling to create a deliberate comparison between how Grindelwald seduces his followers and the current political climate, he crumbles because a) Depp's performance is the opposite of the seductive and b) the characters are extremely difficult to invest.
When the first one Harry Potter the book was published and began to inflame the imagination of people around the world, the series that had seven books of length was cooked on the basic premise of a boy who spent seven years of schooling. The notion that there will be five Fantasies beasts movies with The crimes of Grindelwald Being the only one, think of reverse engineering to make sure that Warner Bros. he can only continue crawling the money. Some fanatics undoubtedly gather this new movie, and enjoy revelations about other long-standing characters (such as the random revelation that the fearsome Nagini snake was a human being first) in Rowling's Wizarding World. But for those who loved him Harry Potter series without getting trapped in the potential history of all random characters, theFantasies beasts The movies are a disappointing dragon.
