We find them transitioning into life on the right side of the law, but home has taken on a surreal quality. Dom tries desperately to reconnect with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), while Brian struggles to acclimate to suburban life with Mia (Jordana Brewster) and their son, and Tej (Ludacris) and Roman (Tyrese Gibson) celebrate their freedom by living the playboy dream.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFurious 7 welcomes director James Wan, where he is joined by a behind-the-scenes team led by producers Neak H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell. Executive producer Chris Morgan writes the screenplay.\r\n\r\nAs Fast & Furious 6 concluded and director Justin Lin wrapped his four-film-long run with the franchise, producers Moritz and Diesel and screenwriter Morgan began the search for somebody to take the position behind the camera.\r\n\r\nAustralian director James Wan, who had reinvigorated the suspense genre with such blockbuster hits as Saw, The Conjuring and Insidious, would sign on to take over the reins for the next chapter. Known for character-driven, innovative and commercial fare that features dramatic tension in highly visual work, Wan knew he was ready to helm the latest entry of a series synonymous with inventive mythology and over-the-top action.\r\n\r\nDiesel speaks on behalf of his fellow cast and crew when discussing why Furious 7 had to be the ultimate celebration of Paul Walker\u2019s life who died during the production: \u201cPaul was a brother to me. The relationships among the Fast family are deep and meaningful, and our characters would do anything for each other. That support and sense of family that exists in the film bleeds off screen with us. With this film, the whole world gets to feel a part of our family.\u201d\r\n\r\nIn Furious 7, Roman maintains his bravado as he pushes for more of a leadership role.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Chris \u201cLudacris\u201d Bridges reprises his role of Tej Parker, the automotive and tech tactician who first appeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious alongside Walker and Gibson. One of the more complicated relationships for Dom is with the other love in his past, Elena Neves, portrayed once again by Elsa Pataky.\u00a0The Spanish actress debuted in Fast Five as the feisty Rio cop who connects with the renegade expat over their shared losses and leaves her home and career behind to go into exile with him.\r\n\r\nIn the Fast tradition of villains, Owen Shaw had been the most impressive rival the crew had come up against. However, with one lethal move against Han, Statham\u2019s Deckard Shaw eclipses his brother with an endgame even more personal: to take Dom and the crew down, one by one. \u201cShaw\u2019s a force to be reckoned with,\u201d cites Moritz. \u201cOur guys are warriors now. Some of the best in the world, and we needed a warrior who could go up against them. We all had that gut feeling that Jason Statham should be our man, which was confirmed with the overwhelming response to his appearance in the last film.\u201d\r\n\r\nBritish actress Nathalie Emmanuel, best known for her role as Missandei, translator and companion to Daenerys Targaryen on the enormous hit HBO series Game of Thrones, joins the cast in the role of Ramsey, the genius underground hacktivist whose latest masterpiece of technology, known as God\u2019s Eye, is the key to tracking down Shaw before he can hunt down our team.\r\n\r\nWhether fast or furious, when it comes to the cars used in the Fast series, the formula is simple. It is up to picture car coordinator Dennis McCarthy, a lifelong car enthusiast who turned his passion into a career, to fully realize that guiding principle.\r\n\r\nFrom the get-go, McCarthy knew the cars needed to satisfy a long list of requirements for story points, practically executed action on the ground and in the air. From the mountain rescue sequence with one-of-a-kind, off-road muscle cars to the final showdown\u2014among the team, Hobbs, Shaw and Jakande\u2019s mercenaries on the streets of Los Angeles\u2014McCarthy and his crew custom built and modified the majority of the fleet to handle the pounding that Morgan\u2019s script inflicts on the cars\u2026not to mention the stunt team.\r\n\r\nMcCarthy fabricated badass off-road versions of Dom\u2019s trusty 1968 DODGE CHARGER R\/T, as well as Letty\u2019s 2015 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT 392, Roman\u2019s 1968 CHEVY CAMARO Z\/28, Brian\u2019s 2014 SUBARU WRXSTI and Tej\u2019s 2014 JEEP RUBICON X. The \u201cFranken-cars\u201d needed to withstand a gamut of stunts expected from a Fast & Furious car, with the added mobility to handle off-road demands. As Dom says, matter-of-factly: \u201cI want the demon love child between that Charger and that [pointing at a military Humvee]. This time it ain\u2019t about being fast.\u201d Perhaps the most challenging task for McCarthy was the limited time frame in which to conceptualize and build the five off-road hero cars needed to pull off a roadside raid alongside a speeding convoy in the Bass G\u00f6yn\u00fck mountains in Azerbaijan.\r\n\r\nBut the real crown jewel of the Abu Dhabi sequence is the prized multimillion-dollar W MOTORS LYKAN HYPERSPORT, which is housed in a vault of a billionaire\u2019s 80th-floor penthouse towering above the city. For the production, McCarthy was able to secure five replicas, in addition to the original. The replicas would do all the heavy lifting, while the $3.5 million original was used for close-ups and tighter beauty shots.\r\n\r\nStatham doesn\u2019t miss out on stunning cars either. He is outfitted with a quintet of fast, functional vehicles: a 2014 JAGUAR F-TYPE R, 2014 MASERATI GHIBLI, a Fast Attack military vehicle, a 2010 LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR and a 2008 ASTON MARTIN DB9.\r\n\r\nYears spent as fugitives have finally brought the crew back to Los Angeles, but this comes at a steep price. The devastating loss of Gisele (Gal Gadot), coupled with Letty\u2019s struggle to cobble together her present with chunks of her elusive past, has profoundly affected them all.\r\n\r\nReturning to L.A., where it all began, was something the cast wanted as much as their on-screen counterparts. But, more importantly, it was essential they revisit iconic locations such as the Toretto house, the outlook at Dodger Stadium, the empty nighttime streets east of downtown and the hot, dry desert for Race Wars.\r\n\r\nPrincipal photography began in September 2013 in Atlanta, where cast and crew previously filmed Fast Five. A number of interior sets along with exterior green-screen sets were built north of Atlanta, including the opulent Abu Dhabi penthouse party space and bedroom sets, as well as the cement factory and Hobbs\u2019 office.\r\n\r\nA group of several hundred well-dressed background actors, gold-painted go-go dancers, stunt players and a sexy red Lykan joined principal cast, rapper T-PAIN, who joined in as the party deejay, and crew over the course of a week to film the elaborately choreographed scene, which lifted the curtain on how billionaires party.\r\n\r\nAs is the norm with the last three Fast films, no matter what far-flung locales Morgan\u2019s scripts take them to, the cast and crew always return home to spend their last days of production filming in Southern California. Furious 7 is no different, as Diesel and Rodriguez spent the last day of filming speeding along a back road in a fast car.","post_image":null,"big_image":null,"post_excerpt":"With family firmly rooted at its core, the Fast & Furious series has evolved into a touchstone for moviegoers following these compelling characters, whose journeys continue to unlock and reveal surprising emotional depth.","post_date":"13th November 2016, 12:28:06","french_date":"13 novembre 2016, 12:28:06","post_date_gmt":"2016-11-13 17:28:06","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails"},{"id":"10638","title":"More Movie Details","content":"[vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=\"UPCOMING MOVIES\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-film\" color=\"blue\" add_icon=\"true\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][rev_slider_vc alias=\"upcoming\"][vc_text_separator title=\"IN THEATRES NOW\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-slideshare\" i_background_style=\"rounded-less-outline\" i_size=\"lg\" color=\"orange\" add_icon=\"true\"][vc_basic_grid post_type=\"post\" max_items=\"12\" style=\"lazy\" items_per_page=\"15\" item=\"basicGrid_VerticalFlip\" grid_id=\"vc_gid:1479057609557-f292816d8a22f37b80027b58fb65b204-5\" taxonomies=\"3, 148, 63, 584, 84, 1943, 126, 168, 678\" exclude=\"10622, 10630\" offset=\"0\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row]","post_image":null,"big_image":null,"post_excerpt":"","post_date":"13th November 2016, 12:23:07","french_date":"13 novembre 2016, 12:23:07","post_date_gmt":"2016-11-13 17:23:07","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails"},{"id":"10637","title":"More Movie Details","content":"[vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=\"UPCOMING MOVIES\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-film\" color=\"blue\" add_icon=\"true\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][rev_slider_vc alias=\"upcoming\"][vc_text_separator title=\"IN THEATRES NOW\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-slideshare\" i_background_style=\"rounded-less-outline\" i_size=\"lg\" color=\"orange\" add_icon=\"true\"][vc_basic_grid post_type=\"post\" max_items=\"12\" style=\"lazy\" items_per_page=\"15\" item=\"basicGrid_VerticalFlip\" grid_id=\"vc_gid:1479057609557-f292816d8a22f37b80027b58fb65b204-5\" taxonomies=\"3, 148, 63, 584, 84, 1943, 126, 168, 678\" exclude=\"10622, 10630\" offset=\"0\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row]","post_image":null,"big_image":null,"post_excerpt":"","post_date":"13th November 2016, 12:22:51","french_date":"13 novembre 2016, 12:22:51","post_date_gmt":"2016-11-13 17:22:51","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails"},{"id":"10636","title":"More Movie Details","content":"[vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=\"UPCOMING MOVIES\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-film\" color=\"blue\" add_icon=\"true\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][rev_slider_vc alias=\"upcoming\"][vc_text_separator title=\"IN THEATRES NOW\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-slideshare\" i_background_style=\"rounded-less-outline\" i_size=\"lg\" color=\"orange\" add_icon=\"true\"][vc_basic_grid post_type=\"post\" max_items=\"12\" style=\"lazy\" items_per_page=\"15\" item=\"basicGrid_VerticalFlip\" grid_id=\"vc_gid:1479057609557-f292816d8a22f37b80027b58fb65b204-5\" taxonomies=\"3, 148, 63, 584, 84, 1943, 126, 168, 678\" exclude=\"10589, 10599, 10622, 10630\" offset=\"0\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row]","post_image":null,"big_image":null,"post_excerpt":"","post_date":"13th November 2016, 12:21:50","french_date":"13 novembre 2016, 12:21:50","post_date_gmt":"2016-11-13 17:21:50","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails"},{"id":"10635","title":"More Movie Details","content":"[vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=\"UPCOMING MOVIES\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-film\" color=\"blue\" add_icon=\"true\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][rev_slider_vc alias=\"upcoming\"][vc_text_separator title=\"IN THEATRES NOW\" i_icon_fontawesome=\"fa fa-slideshare\" i_background_style=\"rounded-less-outline\" i_size=\"lg\" color=\"orange\" add_icon=\"true\"][vc_basic_grid post_type=\"post\" max_items=\"12\" style=\"lazy\" items_per_page=\"15\" item=\"basicGrid_VerticalFlip\" grid_id=\"vc_gid:1478759712487-89d3e0a0f58903b7fa4c673ccacb4bdb-0\" taxonomies=\"3, 148, 63, 584, 84, 1943, 126, 168, 678\" exclude=\"10589, 10599\" offset=\"0\"][\/vc_column][\/vc_row]","post_image":null,"big_image":null,"post_excerpt":"","post_date":"13th November 2016, 12:18:54","french_date":"13 novembre 2016, 12:18:54","post_date_gmt":"2016-11-13 17:18:54","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails"},{"id":"10630","title":"The Edge of Seventeen","content":"Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) and Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) are inseparable best friends attempting to navigate high school together\u2026 until Nadine\u2019s older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) and Krista begin dating.

With her view of the world rocked, Nadine is forced to see the people in her life \u2013 including her well-meaning but distracted mother (Kyra Sedgwick), and unlikely mentor and History teacher Mr. Bruner (Woody Harrelson) \u2013 with fresh eyes and new appreciation that people\u2014and life\u2014are more complicated than she thought.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWriter\/director Kelly Fremon Craig was inspired to pen The Edge of Seventeen by the authentic teen films of her youth, a type of film not often found in today\u2019s marketplace. \u201cI\u2019ve always been intrigued by periods of rapid emotional growth and self-examination, when situations change around us, forcing us to step into new roles and re-determine who we are and how we feel about ourselves.\u201d\r\n\r\nFremon Craig\u2019s spec script about a girl and her best friend in high school came to the attention of legendary Oscar\u00ae and Emmy\u00ae Award-winning producer James L. Brooks at Gracie Films. \u201cKelly had a first draft and when we first talked - just as she was leaving the office - she turned around and she said \u2018No one will ever work harder than I do.\u2019 And that did it.\u2019\u201d \u201cHonestly, I wasn\u2019t captivated by that first draft,\u201d admits Brooks. \u201cIt was good work. But when Kelly said that, then we went to work. She went away for a big chunk of time. I\u2019m a big believer in research. She\u2019d bring back interview tapes and we\u2019d look at it and it would inspire us.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cThe first time I read the script, I thought this is special,\u201d remembers longtime Brooks collaborator and Gracie Films producer Julie Ansell. \u201cThe characters were so full and so funny. We spent almost four years working on it, which is our process. This is what we like to do. This is an amazing piece of writing\u201d\r\n\r\nBrooks describes the story succinctly. \u201cAfter reading the first draft, there were some people who wanted to title the film Besties, and that first draft focused on a friendship between two girls. But now it\u2019s about a lot more than that. The friendship is still the catalyst for a lot of action, and the story is mainly about this central character Nadine, but there are a couple of people in this movie with secrets, which adds great tension.\u201d\r\n\r\nGracie Films\u2019 reputation for acclaimed and thoughtful material as well as their track record for mentoring fresh filmmakers made it the perfect home for Fremon Craig and her screenplay. \u201cI don\u2019t do this very often and when I do, the motivation is always the same\u2026 a writer with a real voice, and that writer will always play a continuing role with the movie. That\u2019s all we do with our little group,\u201d says Brooks. \u201cThe first writer we worked with was Cameron Crowe for a picture called Say Anything, and he ended up directing that project. With Wes Anderson on Bottle Rocket, we knew he was going to direct going in, and with Kelly we knew it going in. We knew this would be her film to direct.\u201d\r\n\r\nAs with any first-time director, there were concerns. \u201cKelly is an Orange County girl, just a delightful human being and there was a moment when we worried whether she\u2019d be too nice for the job,\u201d laughs Brooks.\r\n\r\nOscar\u00ae nominated Hailee Steinfeld is the center of an exceptionally strong cast with wide appeal. \u201cThis is a character-driven movie and finding Nadine was an incredible journey - very difficult and incredibly important,\u201d remembers producer Julie Ansell. \u201cWe must have seen over 1,000 girls \u2013 from knowns to unknowns. We read everybody and we weren\u2019t going to make the movie unless we found the right actress. Hailee walked in and that was that. Actually, every part was like that.\r\n\r\nUp-and-coming actress Haley Lu Richardson was cast in the pivotal role as Nadine\u2019s inseparable best friend Krista who falls for Nadine\u2019s brother. \u201cAgain we had a large search for both of those roles,\u201d says Ansell. \u201cWe cast Blake Jenner as Darian fairly quickly. We thought the Krista part would be easier but it turned out to be very difficult. Luckily, Haley Lu came in pretty late in the process. At the beginning, you only see Darian through Nadine\u2019s eyes and they have a difficult relationship.\u201d\r\n\r\nDirector Kelly Fremon Craig had Jenner write in a journal while prepping for the role. \u201cBlake is one of the most committed, researched, and hardworking actors I\u2019ve ever seen,\u201d comments Fremon Craig. \u201cHis talent is extraordinary and he blew me away. The minute he came in, he had me crying.\u201d\r\n\r\nVeteran actors Kyra Sedgwick and Woody Harrelson portray the key adults in the story \u2013 Nadine\u2019s mother and teacher. Filmmakers needed a powerful actor who could make an impact on a lead character with limited screen time and were thrilled to cast Oscar\u00ae nominated actor Woody Harrelson as Nadine\u2019s History teacher. \u201cWe needed a Mr. Bruner who could stand up to Nadine,\u201d says Ansell. \u201cThey have a fractious relationship, but at the same time the scenes between Woody and Hailee are hysterically funny.\u201d\r\n\r\nTwo Canadian actors round out the cast: newcomer Alexander Calvert playing Nadine\u2019s crush Nick, and veteran Eric Keenleyside appearing briefly as Nadine\u2019s father Tom, whose untimely death kick starts the story.\r\n\r\nPrior to the start of principal photography, the director led the cast through a period of intense rehearsal. Sedgwick enjoyed this, \u201cWe started with a really good improv with Hailee and I. Coming from theater, I love rehearsal and it was interesting to talk to Hailee about it because she's not used to rehearsal.\u201d\r\n\r\nPrincipal photography on The Edge of Seventeen began on October 21, 2015.

And the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, after wreaking havoc in Europe, has slipped away\u2026and is now nowhere to be found.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe film marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, whose seven beloved Harry Potter books were adapted into the top-grossing film franchise of all time. Her script was inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by her character Newt Scamander.\r\n\r\nIn addition to director David Yates, the film reunited a number of people from the \u201cHarry Potter\u201d features, including producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair and Rick Senat served as executive producers.\r\n\r\nHaving helmed the final four installments of the \u2018Potter\u2019 franchise, Yates says his return to the cinematic wizarding world was \u201clike coming home. It was lovely to step back into the place I\u2019d spent six wonderful years.\u201d\r\n\r\nJ.K. Rowling, who made her screenwriting debut on the film and also served as a producer, recalls that she initially brought the primer into being as a project for charity. \u201cDuring the writing of that book,\u201d she says, \u201cI became interested in its ostensible author, Newt Scamander, and he took on quite a bit of life for me. So I was very enthusiastic when the studio came to me and said they wanted to make it into a movie because I already had the back story in my mind and it just so happened that they\u2019d optioned the very thing I was most interested in. And I knew if it were to happen, I would have to write it because I know too much about Newt to let someone else do it.\u201d\r\n\r\nFound within the tale are other, albeit more subtle, links to J.K. Rowling\u2019s previous works. Producer David Heyman, who also produced all eight of the \u201cHarry Potter\u201d films, confirms that amidst the magic and fun, are concepts that have become hallmarks of her writing. \u201cMany of the underlying themes of the Potter books are in evidence here: the virtue of tolerance in contrast to the dangers of intolerance and repression; being true to who you are; outsiders coming together and connecting\u2026\u201d\r\n\r\nEddie Redmayne, who stars in the central role of Newt Scamander, relates, \u201cA theme at the core of this film is the fear of things we don\u2019t understand and also how people react to that fear by taking extremes.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe talented ensemble of actors joining Redmayne in front of the camera included Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo and Colin Farrell.\r\n\r\nBehind the camera, a number of other \u201cPotter\u201d alumni were reunited on \u201cFantastic Beasts,\u201d including production designer Stuart Craig. Over the course of eight films, Craig had realized Rowling\u2019s vision of the wizarding world, perhaps most notably the Hogwarts Castle, whose silhouette has become as recognizable as the characters who inhabited it. For this film, Craig created another wizarding world institution\u2014the headquarters of MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America).\r\n\r\nThe casting of \u201cFantastic Beasts\u201d began with the character of Newt Scamander, whose visit to New York becomes far more eventful than he ever imagined. Heyman says that Eddie Redmayne was the filmmakers\u2019 first and only choice for the part. \u201cHe is quintessentially British, and an actor for all times who can play a character from any time.\u201d\r\n\r\nYates reveals that finding the chemistry began in the audition process. \u201cWe started with Eddie as Newt and then built the world around him. It was a bit like putting a band together,\u201d the director laughs. \u201cEddie flew to New York with us and we auditioned lots of Tinas and Jacobs and Queenies with him in a room. Over a 48-hour period, he did the same scenes over and over again with different people, and out of that process we found our core cast\u2014four actors who all bring something different to the movie in interesting ways that complement one another.\u201d\r\n\r\nRedmayne says the results were worth it. \u201cThe film revolves around this quartet of people who start out moving in completely opposite directions and end up cohered as friends. It was wonderful getting to work with three such brilliant actors as Katherine, Alison and Dan.\u201d\r\n\r\nAs the title suggests, there is another ensemble of characters who play a vital role in the story: the collection of magical animals that Newt has rescued during his global expedition. The beasts were designed and then given depth, dimension, color, light, movement and individual personalities via CGI. The complicated process involved a close collaboration between David Yates, J.K. Rowling, visual effects supervisors Tim Burke and Christian Manz and their team, and the VFX computer animation development department, led by Pablo Grillo, among others.\r\n\r\nManz recalls, \u201cThe main challenge was to create animals that you believe could live in the animal kingdom of the wizarding world.\u201d Part of the task of instilling that belief fell to the actors, primarily Eddie Redmayne, who shares the most amount of screen time with the animals and had to convey Newt Scamander\u2019s abiding love and compassion for his menagerie. In preparing for that aspect of his role, Redmayne spent time with real-life animal handlers, studying how they related to the beings in their care. He details, \u201cI met with zoologists and people who track animals to observe them in the wild, and they all talked passionately about feeling at one with the environment and celebrating nature. I did quite a bit of work on the extraordinary relationships between humans and animals and it lent a lot of physical and emotional elements to my performance.\u201d\r\n\r\nTo help the actors perform opposite beasts that weren\u2019t actually there, the filmmakers often utilized puppeteers \u201cto give the actors something real to interact with, something they could touch, which reacted to their performance in the moment,\u201d says supervising creature puppeteer Robin Guiver.\r\n\r\nIn bringing the beasts to life, Grillo says that they sought input from the person whose imagination had spawned the entire project. \u201cOver the course of the production, J.K. Rowling would come in to see how the creatures were going and her approval was obviously very important to us. On some occasions, she would say, \u2018No that\u2019s not right. Newt wouldn\u2019t have that in his case because it\u2019s a domesticated creature; Newt\u2019s special interest is more rare and vulnerable species.\u2019 She obviously knows this world intimately, so that kind of feedback was invaluable.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe final artistic element in \u201cFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them\u201d is the score, composed by James Newton Howard. \u201cThis is the kind of movie that\u2019s every composer\u2019s dream,\u201d he states. \u201cThe scope of the film is very broad\u2014there are beautiful, magical moments and also some dark, scary moments, so it required complex themes that are able to move between them, while, more than anything else, helping to tell the story.\u201d","post_image":"http:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2016\/11\/fantastic-beasts-150x150.jpg","big_image":"http:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2016\/11\/fantastic-beasts.jpg","post_excerpt":"\u201cFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them\u201d takes us to a new era of J.K.

Something mysterious is leaving a path of destruction in the streets, threatening to expose the wizarding community to the No-Majs (American for Muggles), including the Second Salemers, a fanatical faction bent on eradicating them. And the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, after wreaking havoc in Europe, has slipped away\u2026and is now nowhere to be found.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe film marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, whose seven beloved Harry Potter books were adapted into the top-grossing film franchise of all time. Her script was inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by her character Newt Scamander.\r\n\r\nIn addition to director David Yates, the film reunited a number of people from the \u201cHarry Potter\u201d features, including producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair and Rick Senat served as executive producers.\r\n\r\nHaving helmed the final four installments of the \u2018Potter\u2019 franchise, Yates says his return to the cinematic wizarding world was \u201clike coming home. It was lovely to step back into the place I\u2019d spent six wonderful years.\u201d\r\n\r\nJ.K. Rowling, who made her screenwriting debut on the film and also served as a producer, recalls that she initially brought the primer into being as a project for charity. \u201cDuring the writing of that book,\u201d she says, \u201cI became interested in its ostensible author, Newt Scamander, and he took on quite a bit of life for me. So I was very enthusiastic when the studio came to me and said they wanted to make it into a movie because I already had the back story in my mind and it just so happened that they\u2019d optioned the very thing I was most interested in. And I knew if it were to happen, I would have to write it because I know too much about Newt to let someone else do it.\u201d\r\n\r\nFound within the tale are other, albeit more subtle, links to J.K. Rowling\u2019s previous works. Producer David Heyman, who also produced all eight of the \u201cHarry Potter\u201d films, confirms that amidst the magic and fun, are concepts that have become hallmarks of her writing. \u201cMany of the underlying themes of the Potter books are in evidence here: the virtue of tolerance in contrast to the dangers of intolerance and repression; being true to who you are; outsiders coming together and connecting\u2026\u201d\r\n\r\nEddie Redmayne, who stars in the central role of Newt Scamander, relates, \u201cA theme at the core of this film is the fear of things we don\u2019t understand and also how people react to that fear by taking extremes.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe talented ensemble of actors joining Redmayne in front of the camera included Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo and Colin Farrell.\r\n\r\nBehind the camera, a number of other \u201cPotter\u201d alumni were reunited on \u201cFantastic Beasts,\u201d including production designer Stuart Craig. Over the course of eight films, Craig had realized Rowling\u2019s vision of the wizarding world, perhaps most notably the Hogwarts Castle, whose silhouette has become as recognizable as the characters who inhabited it. For this film, Craig created another wizarding world institution\u2014the headquarters of MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America).\r\n\r\nThe casting of \u201cFantastic Beasts\u201d began with the character of Newt Scamander, whose visit to New York becomes far more eventful than he ever imagined. Heyman says that Eddie Redmayne was the filmmakers\u2019 first and only choice for the part. \u201cHe is quintessentially British, and an actor for all times who can play a character from any time.\u201d\r\n\r\nYates reveals that finding the chemistry began in the audition process. \u201cWe started with Eddie as Newt and then built the world around him. It was a bit like putting a band together,\u201d the director laughs. \u201cEddie flew to New York with us and we auditioned lots of Tinas and Jacobs and Queenies with him in a room. Over a 48-hour period, he did the same scenes over and over again with different people, and out of that process we found our core cast\u2014four actors who all bring something different to the movie in interesting ways that complement one another.\u201d\r\n\r\nRedmayne says the results were worth it. \u201cThe film revolves around this quartet of people who start out moving in completely opposite directions and end up cohered as friends. It was wonderful getting to work with three such brilliant actors as Katherine, Alison and Dan.\u201d\r\n\r\nAs the title suggests, there is another ensemble of characters who play a vital role in the story: the collection of magical animals that Newt has rescued during his global expedition. The beasts were designed and then given depth, dimension, color, light, movement and individual personalities via CGI. The complicated process involved a close collaboration between David Yates, J.K. Rowling, visual effects supervisors Tim Burke and Christian Manz and their team, and the VFX computer animation development department, led by Pablo Grillo, among others.\r\n\r\nManz recalls, \u201cThe main challenge was to create animals that you believe could live in the animal kingdom of the wizarding world.\u201d Part of the task of instilling that belief fell to the actors, primarily Eddie Redmayne, who shares the most amount of screen time with the animals and had to convey Newt Scamander\u2019s abiding love and compassion for his menagerie. In preparing for that aspect of his role, Redmayne spent time with real-life animal handlers, studying how they related to the beings in their care. He details, \u201cI met with zoologists and people who track animals to observe them in the wild, and they all talked passionately about feeling at one with the environment and celebrating nature. I did quite a bit of work on the extraordinary relationships between humans and animals and it lent a lot of physical and emotional elements to my performance.\u201d\r\n\r\nTo help the actors perform opposite beasts that weren\u2019t actually there, the filmmakers often utilized puppeteers \u201cto give the actors something real to interact with, something they could touch, which reacted to their performance in the moment,\u201d says supervising creature puppeteer Robin Guiver.\r\n\r\nIn bringing the beasts to life, Grillo says that they sought input from the person whose imagination had spawned the entire project. \u201cOver the course of the production, J.K. Rowling would come in to see how the creatures were going and her approval was obviously very important to us. On some occasions, she would say, \u2018No that\u2019s not right. Newt wouldn\u2019t have that in his case because it\u2019s a domesticated creature; Newt\u2019s special interest is more rare and vulnerable species.\u2019 She obviously knows this world intimately, so that kind of feedback was invaluable.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe final artistic element in \u201cFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them\u201d is the score, composed by James Newton Howard. \u201cThis is the kind of movie that\u2019s every composer\u2019s dream,\u201d he states. \u201cThe scope of the film is very broad\u2014there are beautiful, magical moments and also some dark, scary moments, so it required complex themes that are able to move between them, while, more than anything else, helping to tell the story.\u201d","post_image":null,"big_image":null,"post_excerpt":"\u201cFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them\u201d takes us to a new era of J.K.
