SDCC 2018: ‘Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald’ Releases New Trailer

@2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment.

When Jude Law is playing a young Albus Dumbledore we need more than just one trailer – and that’s a fact. Thankfully, Warner Bros. agreed as they treated attendees of their monstrous Saturday Hall H panel to a second trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Check it out below!

Fans in Hall H were loving it!

They also released a brand new poster featuring the whole cast!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald finds Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) following orders from Dumbledore to travel to Paris to track down dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), who has escaped from prison and is gathering followers who will threaten the future of non-magical beings. The film also stars Katherine Waterson as Tina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jack Kowalski, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone, and Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The Crimes of Grindelwald marks the second installment of the Fantastic Beasts film series, and the tenth overall in the Wizarding World franchise, which began with the Harry Potter series. It features a screenplay by Harry Potter  author J.K. Rowling and will be directed by David Yates. The first film, which hit theaters in 2016, scored over $800 million worldwide at the box office and with all the excitement surrounding the second film, we would expect similar numbers come the film’s release.

Warner Bros. also treated SDCC attendees to some exclusive scoop and trailers for films like Aquaman, Shazam!, Mowgli, and Wonder Woman 1984. 

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald arrives in theatres November 16th.
