The official title is Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

Katherine didn't know the title of Fantastic Beasts 3 at the time, but now
everyone does (Video (via)). Warner Bros recently released updates, the
third movie got its title, new earlier release dates, and official synopsis.

"Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald
is moving to seize control of the wizarding world.  Unable to stop him alone, he
entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches,
and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and
new beasts and clash with Grindelwald's growing legion of followers.  But with the
stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?"


 The Secrets of Dumbledore hit theaters on April 15, 2022,
3 months earlier than its previously scheduled release on July 15.
People in the UK and Ireland can see it a week early from April 8.
The release date here in Hungary is April 22.

New/Old outtakes from the photoshoot for 'World Screen Magazine'
with the cast of "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald".
Almost everyone will return in the third installment.

At its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona, Warner Bros screened some behind-the-scenes footage 
from Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore, providing a bit of fresh insight into the project.
The  BTS scenes shown in Spain included a quick glimpse of Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindelwald. 
The story picks up in the 1930s, a little after the events of the previous film, and will take place in such
far-flung locales as Bhutan, Germany, the U.S., the UK, and China. Evoked were new creatures, old
favorites, more magic and even a peek back into Hogwarts. (Deadline)

James Newton Howard: "I’m super excited about the Beasts movie. I think it’s by far
the best one. It’s really good. Mads Mikkelsen is playing Grindelwald. He’s so great,
and it’s just great. It’s full of magic and scary stuff and romantic. It’s just really fun."

New photo - shopping in Malton


Eddie in Food 2 Remember in Malton (Yorkshire, England)
Looking good Mr. Redmayne  😍

Food2Remember posted today on Twitter and Instagram: "Nice
to see this great bloke here at Food 2 Remember in this morning"

'Eddie Redmayne was among the first through the door at
Food 2 Remember in Malton at about 9am today (September 2)
where father and son team, Paul and Kieran Potts were behind
the counter serving customers in their well-known local
butcher and fish mongers.

Paul said at first he didn't recognize the star, but his son was quicker
off the mark. He said: "I was talking to him and didn't know who
he was, but Kieran realized and asked if he'd mind having a photo.

"He was really nice and down to earth, he didn't say why he was
in Malton, but he bought some chicken before he went. I think
he was interested in the fact that all our food is locally sourced."'

Take A Seat at the Donmar Warehouse - new campaign video


The Donmar Warehouse is currently undergoing essential building works,
getting ready to reopen in September 2021. They shared a new video with
Eddie Redmayne in support of their new campaign. Eddie popped in to
see the work in progress at the Donmar and got behind the Take a Seat
campaign to help the theatre get back into shape by September. Take a look
at the video and find out what Eddie got up to on his visit to the theatre.

"For me, this theatre the Donmar is not only one of the greatest theatres in the world
but also the most intimate. You can literally hear the audience breathe and they can see
every bead of sweat. It genuinely feels like you're kind of in your living room with
your family, just like performing for them."

So how many seats there gonna be? About 250.

"When I was doing 'Red', there was a moment in the play where Alfred Molina
and I had to prime this massive canvas with bright red paint. I was coming to
work one day on the tube and this lady opposite me kind of tapped me on the
knee and she pointed to this massive red blotch of paint on her handbag and
she said 'you did this' and I went 'I'm so sorry!' and she said 'no-no, I kept it
as a souvenir from my night at the Donmar.' You only get that intimacy here."

"You guys too can be a part of the Donmar family and join me in helping
support this beautiful theatre as it emerges from the pandemic. All we need
now are some seats with your names on them... Thank You."

My blog turned 8 today.

I'm still here and I will be.

New project on the Horizon


Collider reported, that "Eddie Redmayne is attached to star in the untitled
Cambridge Analytica movie for Joe and Anthony Russo's company AGBO
Films, which is in talks with two-time Oscar-winner Peter Farrelly to direct.

A representative for AGBO had no comment.

Avengers: Endgame scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wrote
the script, and the project is financed and ready to go into production, though
just like last year when we reported that Matt Shakman was in talks to direct,
it's still anyone's guess as to when that will actually be. The project was
initially slated to be directed by David Gordon Green.

Redmayne is poised to play Christopher Wylie, the pink-haired data consultant
who hatched the idea of Cambridge Analytica, a data analytics firm that illegally
harvested the personal data of 87 million Facebook users in order to influence
Donald Trump's presidential victory and the Brexit vote. Wylie's guilty conscience
led him to become a whistleblower and tell his story, both in court and in the press,
and it was an article in The Guardian by Carole Cadwalladr that was acquired by
AGBO and serves as the catalyst for this project.

The Russo brothers are producing with their AGBO partner Mike Larocca, and
the Cambridge Analytica project represents an edgy departure for the company,
as well as screenwriters Markus and McFeely. 30WEST is executive producing
and shopping the Cambridge Analytica movie with AGBO, and several
distributors are said to have already expressed interest in the prestige project."

Check out if you want to know more about
the real person Eddie is poised to play.
