How Celebrities Go to the Movies - Fandango Concessions Confessions

“Popcorn. In England you get to choose between salt and sweet popcorn, where as I 
like to mix the two. So you’re never quite sure what you’re getting. Kind of constant 
element of surprise; keeps me entertained during the trailers.” - Eddie Redmayne (x)

Where do Jennifer Lopez, Michael B. Jordan, Jason Momoa, and Tessa Thompson
think the best seats in the movie theater are? What are Jake Johnson, Dolph Lundgren,

I prefer it in German. I was a choirboy, so when I was a kid, I probably sang it in choir."

VFX by METHOD Studios - BTS of The Crimes of Grindelwald

What was the sequences made by Method Studios? We designed and created new CG fantastic 
beasts, 12 of which are featured in the film including the Kelpie, Augurey, Leucrocotta, and baby 
Nifflers; we also handled a complex underwater sequence inside Newt’s magical creature hospital 
where he tames the unpredictable Kelpie.

"On set, Animation Supervisor Stephen Clee managed a team of up to five puppeteers
moving in sync as one stand-in to give Eddie a physical reference. Some of the action was
filmed dry-for-wet, and other portions were shot with him submerged with a respirator in a
20-foot deep tank. The underwater footage provided our artists with a real-world starting
point for Newt’s wet hair and clothes, air bubbles, and buoyant physical movements; it was
such a huge help to actually have him in the water. For shots of Eddie riding the Kelpie,
he was filmed riding this big buck puppet with reins, so we were somewhat tied to his
animation and the puppet’s animation – where he was putting his hands and how he was
interacting with the puppet. We needed our CG model to be flexible so it could be true to
what Eddie was doing with the puppet. Sometimes we’d thin out or increase the amount of
kelp to help blend the live action and CG elements. The two reins were basically rotomated
to where Eddie’s hands were to make sure they were connecting properly. The CG Kelpie
wasn’t an exactly replacement for the physical buck but rather a balancing act between
animation and roto to make sure performance feels authentic." - Nordin Rahhali

"The Kelpie sequence was the most complicated, mainly for the reasons outlined in other questions,
but also because it had the least amount of practical set to use. These shots were basically Eddie on
a green screen stage, and with water being the main element missing, it was definitely a challenge."

New selfies - sightings from London

Thanks to evan.xiong who posted on Instagram this morning: It was 
my big pleasure to work with Eddie Redmayne! He is so nice !☺️

Japan press day photos, interview quotes

“...what you can learn from Newt is to have a "sympathetic mind". He finds a good side 
for any human being and beast, trying to understand without criticism. Why does this 
person take such action? "Empathy mind" is necessary in modern society, trying to 
understand someone without prejudice.” (my favorite quote translated from Japanese)

“She’s fantastic. There are occasional moments when Hannah and I are both out of the
room and we get a glimpse of Iris entertaining Luke, No one makes him laugh as much as
she does. You can’t quite believe it. Like, these humans are interacting [by themselves],
so that’s been pretty special.” - Eddie told People Magazine on his daughter
