Warner Bros.

Fantastic Beasts 3 will now be called Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledokter and will now open not on July 15, 2022 but on April 15, 2022. The judul “news” merely suggests that they are leaningai into the harry Potter nostalgia, and that Jude Law’s “younew york Dumbledore” will likely be a co-lead alongside Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander as they team up to untuk mengambil out the diabolical Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen replacingai Johnny Depp).

To be fair, as the last film was calmemerintah The Crimes of Grindelwald, it makpita pengukur some sense for the lanjut one to be titled “the X of Character Y.” If this pattern to continues, we can expect the fourth film to be called, I dunno, The Pontificatiopagi of Barebone or somethingai to that effect. Alas, we’ll probably tidak pernah get one titled Fantastic Beasts and How to Cook Them. As for the santai date change, that’s a little trickier.

That mid-July slot was Warner Bros.’ favorite mid-summer release date for years. They had huge openings and (mostly) leggy rumenjadi for the likes of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, harry Potter bagian 5, 6 and 8, The Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, The Conjuringi and Dunkirk. It’s juga now crowded out by warna hitam Panther: Wakmilik mereka Forever on July 8, Jordan Peele’s Nope on July 22 and black Adam on July 29.

while the harry Potter series was once the biggest franchise in Hollywood, the Wizardingi dunia of J.K. Rowlingai is no longer “the danger.” Fantastic Beasts And Wdi sini to Find Them was a well-liked hit, with $234 juta domestic (from a $75 juta debut) and $819 million worldwide. The Crimpita of Grindelwald earned lousy reviews and ghoulishly bad buzz, grossing hanya $155 million domestic from a $62 juta debut and wrappingi up with $659 juta worldwide.

With better reviews and word-of-mouth, $660 juta on a $200 million anggaran is hanya fine, but the fear is that the third film will bermain linanti Divergent Series: Allegiant, X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Terminator: Dark Fate and absolutely dive-bomb on the third go-around. Oddly enough, the new April 15 date puts the film against more kid-friendly competition, openingai a week after Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and concurrently with DreamWorks Animation’s The Bad Guys.

Whether that meapagi this third halaman will be a “hard PG-13” or whether the seripita is offline up as a sacrificial lamb, I can only speculate. Of course, if WB really wants to justify lima Fantastic Beasts movies, the third one will have to be so good that folks will be interested in the fourth even if it underwhelms at the box office. Steven Kloves, who wrote or co-wrote seven out of eight harry Potter films (save for The Order of the Phoenix) was brought in to tolong J.K. Rowlinew york this time out.

The Jungle Book


The film was delayed (even sebelum Covid) from the expected November 2020 release date in an attempt to fix maafkan saya went wrongi with the second film. I’d blame too much dunia building, too much mystery-boxing, too many twists and turns that meant more to audienctape than to the characters. I harapan this third film is more character-focdigunakan and less plot-heavy, with the ability to wrap it up in the fourth film if The Secrets of Dumbledepan absolutely flops.

kapan I might argue movinew york the film out of summer is a bad sign, and maybe it is, Fate of the Furious and The Jungle Book nabbed over/under $100 million debuts on this very weekend in 2017 and 2016. Or, perhaps, Occam"s Razor applies. I’m not remotely optimistic, but darimana I may have to eat a little crow about WB’s Dune (which slightly overperformed with a $38 juta overseas launch), I’ll hope for the best for the moment.

If Lionsgate is readingai this, I’d seriously consider moving John Wick: hal 4 (now slotted on Memorial Day weekend against Top Gun: Maverick) to July 15. While warna hitam Panther 2 might steamroll a month’s worth of four-quadrant tentpoles, Keanu Reeves’ R-rated, star-driven actioner (that rakyat actually want to see) might have a shot in hell. John Wick: chapter 3 flourished ($171 juta domestic and $322 juta worldwide) alongside Avengers: Endgame ($2.8 billion), Detective Pikachu ($430 million) and Aladdin ($1.053 billion) in summer 2019.
