'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' (Nov. 16)

The Potterverse prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them set the stage for a new chapter in J.K. Rowling's saga of magic and muggles, and this follow-up hopes to build on that promise, pitting the timid Newt Scamander (Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne) against the fearsome wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). For those that carped that the first Fantastic Beasts was too slow, remember: The original Harry Potter cinematic universe didn't get cooking until the second installment, either. And for those thirsting for a little more Hogwarts-ian connection to this new franchise, Jude Law is on board to play a much-younger Dumbledore – a role made iconic by the late Richard Harris and Michael Gambon in the Potter films.
