Harry Potter Spinoff Fantastic Beasts Movie Release Date Set For November 2016
As half the Harry Potter films made their debut in November, that seems like a fitting month for J.K. Rowling's world to be revisited, as Warner Bros. has set the release date for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them for late November in 2016.

Movie Poster Mash-Ups Blend Together Your Favorite Blockbusters
Sometimes Fan Art is better than the actual art studios put out, mostly because it presents material that's already known to everyone – just in unique ways. And sometimes, it's better because it makes us laugh when at something we normally wouldn't. Laugh that come from things like British Pop Bands on desolate planets, Ewok hookers, and luxury liners with deadly vendettas. All of those and more lie behind the curtain, as we curate some of the most fun (and funny) art on the Internet.

Harry Potter Prequel Headed To The Stage, J.K. Rowling To Co-Produce The Play
Hearing the phrase “Harry Potter prequel,” I automatically assume it’s either a story about Harry Potter’s parents and the Marauders, or it goes further back and tells the story of Dumbledore during any of that man’s fascinating past.

Stop Complaining When Books Get Re-Adapted, Sometimes They Should Be
Remakes are unoriginal, pretty much by definition. So it’s not unreasonable for people to complain when it seems like Hollywood is churning out remake after remake. With that said, I think a line needs to be drawn between your standard remake of a popular movie, and a remake of a movie that was based on a book. A remake of an original movie seems like an obvious cash grab.

More Harry Potter Spinoffs Planned By Warner Bros?
With the recent news that Warner Bros and J.K. Rowling were looking to turn bonus-book Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them into a new series of feature films, it's not a stretch to theorize that WB might also have its eye on other potential spinoff material from the massively popular franchise. After all, there's no shortage of material to work from, when factoring in the seven books in the series and the additional bonus books that have been published.

Why The Harry Potter Spinoff Is A Fantastic Idea
In response to the news that J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. are teaming up for a series of films based on Harry Potter Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, some have expressed doubt -- our own Katey Rich included -- about the choice of source material for the spinoff. But there are arguments to be made as to why Fantastic Beasts could prove to be a fantastic series, and I'm going to break those down for you right now.

Is J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter Spinoff Really A Good Idea?
Whether you're a Hermione or a Ron will probably determine your reaction to today's news that there will be a new series of films based in the wizarding world of Harry Potter (no, not the theme park, though that's probably inevitable)

Harry Potter Spinoff Fantastic Beasts Movie Series In The Works
Book 4 came out in 2000, right around the time the Harry Potter craze was first blowing up in the U.S., so the three-year wait seemed particularly long after devouring the first four books. In that space of time, author J.K. Rowling offered fans some new material to satiate our craving for all things Hogwarts, in the form of two books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through The Ages.

What Happens If You Watch Jaws, Mean Girls And Harry Potter Backwards?
Reddit has given the world some silly games and ideas, but this might be the silliest one that we've completely loved. Over at this thread, which was picked up and Buzzfeed-ified here, user sixdoublefive321 starts the conversation: "If you watch the movie Jaws backwards, it's a movie about a shark that keeps throwing up people until they have to open a beach."

Wander Down Harry Potter's Diagon Alley With Google Maps
Google Maps can be an incredibly cool thing. Or it can be a total stalkery thing. It all depends on perspective and usage, I suppose. In some situations, it can be a great way to virtually visit places all over the world. Want to see what the ocean looks like up close or stand in the middle of Russia's Red Square? Google has that covered too.

Baz Luhrmann Turned Down Directing Harry Potter
While the Harry Potter franchise is an unmitigated success, pulling in more than $7 billion at the box office over eight films, many fans admit the first two in the series—both directed by Chris Columbus—don't hold up as well as their follow-ups.

Watch Batman Invade Star Wars, Harry Potter, Wizard Of Oz And More
Since Batman Begins debuted in 2005, everyone has taken a whack at impersonating Bale's Batman, but youtube uses PistolShrimps took his to a new level of absurdity with this video. What, this vid imagines, if Bale's gravel-toned Batman stepped in for Harry Potter's Hermione Granger? Star Wars' Princess Leia? 2001: A Space Odyssey's murderous computer HAL?

Scientists Are Making Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak A Reality
Maybe you wish for an invisibility cloak of your own that would allow you to slip out of the office unseen and dash off to whatever mischief you could manage. Well, science is finally making up for our decided lack of progress on the Back to the Future Part II-style hoverboard front with the creation of an actual invisibility cloak.

Relive The Harry Potter Films With This 13-Minute Video
As a Harry Potter fan, I'll admit, the new Harry Potter Wizard's Collection Blu-ray/DVD Combo set is a very nice looking set. With 31 discs included, featuring all of the movies and hours of bonus content, not to mention the fancy packaging, it's tempting to consider shelling out the understandably high cost, especially when considering half the movies I own are the originally released DVDs.

Harry Potter Fan Decodes Wizarding Genetics
“Magical ability could be explained by a single autosomal dominant gene if it is caused by an expansion of trinucleotide repeats with non-Mendelian ratios of inheritance,” Klenotiz explains, before launching into a very detailed, scientific explanation of nucleotide bases, Trinucleotide repeats and Mendelian patterns of inheritance.

The Avengers Makes $20 Million At Midnight Showings, But Can't Beat Harry Potter

How Many Box Office Records Has The Hunger Games Shattered?
The film now holds the record for top midnight debut for a non-sequel ($19.74M). Its $155M pull makes it the highest-grossing March opening (ahead of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland) and the highest-grossing Spring opening (ahead of Alice and Fast Five). And in four short days, it became the highest-grossing film in Lionsgate history.

One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy Movie Rights Picked Up By Timur Bekmambetov
Screenwriter Edward Ricourt (Now You See Me) will make his directorial debut with the adaptation of the story of futuristic teenager named Hieronymus Rexaphin – sounds like a mood-altering drug. Our hero lives on a colonized moon, and finds himself wrestling with all sorts of emotions when he meets and falls for an Earth girl who’s impressed with his ability to see the future.

People's Choice Award Winners, And What We Can Learn From Them
A lot of these winners are entirely predictable-- Harry Potter cleaned up thanks to the somewhat mysterious absence of Twilight (did the movie not come out in time?), while Bridesmaids-- one of the few movies of the year that both awards-givers and actual people can agree on-- won the Comedy category

UK Prime Minister Declares Film Funds Will Focus On Projects With Commercial Potential
Beyond being frightfully naïve, Cameron's plea is an absolute slap in the face to Britain's independent film community. Ironic, considering the 2010 government-funded independent biopic The King's Speech not only won international acclaim—including four Oscars and seven BAFTAs—but also earned more than $414 million worldwide.

Spielberg Explains Why He Didn't Direct Harry Potter
I like to think I’m not alone in having mixed feelings about the Harry Potter films as a fan of J.K. Rowling series. On one hand, heading to the theater time and again to see how each of the novels was adapted to the big screen was part of what being a Harry Potter fan was over the course of the last decade or so. On the other hand, the movies weren’t perfect adaptations.
