Two new TV spots have been released for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with both spots putting the focus on the beasties inside Newt Scamander’s enchanted briefcase. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt, a magizoologist who travels to the Big Apple where he causes quite the disruption when a few of his beasts escape from his suitcase.
According to a report from THR, Kevin Hart is in negotiations to play Santa Claus in the Disney family comedy entitled Dashing Through the Snow. The story will follow a New York City detective who doesn’t have the best relationship with his son. The only thing that might be able to save their relationship is for the one true Santa Claus to make him believe in Christmas again. A release date has not been set.
One week after it was announced that Jennifer Lawrence would lead Ron Howard’s bio-pic about Zelda Fitzgerald, THR reports that Scarlett Johansson is developing her own Zelda biopic, with both films on the fast track hoping to hit theatres first. The Johansson project is titled The Beautiful and the Damned.
