It seems the SyFy channel is showing all the Harry Potter movies this week with sneak peeks of FB with vignettes from cast members, scenes not in the trailers. :hatsoff:

I had a meeting today which meant I had to walk through Leicester Square where they were putting up all the pictures and barriers - such an exciting atmosphere.

:hatsoff: Good point, Ade.
I've created a discussion thread where we can discuss our thoughts about the movie, including spoilers. ;)

Well, the word is out. The Rotten Tomatoes’ lock-step march is on: FBCOG’s rating has slid from a promising 58% at one point over the last three days to a dismal 46% in the last hour.

I know, I know, these numbers mean nothing to Johnny. Believing that to still be true, however, does little for those (myself included) who so dearly wanted Johnny - and all of the cast and crew for that matter - to enjoy fluttering a much deserved nose-thumbing to the lot of them.

Still have fingers crossed the box office results will knock everyone’s socks off. And this, Johnny DOES need: it’s the only objective measure of his relevancy in this medium, currently available at these crucial crossroads, to throw back at those who would bury him yesterday if left to their own preferences. If a film ripped by critics for its convoluted, overstuffed script but praised by viewers (and even some of their own) for Johnny’s charismatic, perfectly modulated performance in the title role brings in the bucks, well, Johnny will have proven once again his value (not liability, as per Variety) to the industry. All just my opinion, and frustration, of course . . .

The tabloids will not report this because it will ruin their storyline of Johnny just being the worst - but here's another proof of him being just the sweetest :truefan:



Alison Sudol: Johnny Depp was very gentle with me

Alison Sudol was nervous about shooting with Johnny Depp, but her nervousness went out of the window when she met him on the sets of the "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald". The actress says he immediately put her at ease.

"I was really nervous going into it for many reasons -- I didn't know him, I didn't work with him. He is quite a legendary actor. He immediately put me at ease," Sudol said during a roundtable discussion here while promoting the Warner Bros Pictures project, which opened in India on November 16.

"He was very gentle with me. He was very kind after every take. He was generous and said lively things about my performance, which was great because I was very vulnerable -- not in the whole movie but in some scenes," she added.

"Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" explores the story of Gellert Grindelwald (Depp), showing his power to influence people to embrace the dark world. Sudol essays the role of mind-reading Queenie in the franchise.

Talking more about her experience with Deep, she said: "At the end of the movie, there is a scene which is particularly painful for me and we had to do it over and over again. I was like yelling in the scene.

"It was awful and at a certain point, I couldn't stop crying. I went to a corner. He came over and he just started telling me a story about him being invited to some weird political party thing. It was hilarious. The stuff he was saying and the way they were reacting. He completely, without making any note of the state I was in or making me self-conscious, genuinely distracted me. It was a kind thing to do. He didn't have to do it.

"He knew where I was at and I really respect that and appreciate that."

Jude likes Johnny as well. :goodvibes:

Of pleasing others, at his own expense

These dates are probably for the US. But at least it means, that the DVD, Blu Ray and so on is on its way :loveshower:

The movie is still on in two theatres in my town here in Switzerland. I wanted to pre- order the DVD but it is on sale in Autumn.
I have bought two books of the making of The Crimes of Grindelwald. There are a lot of drawings of streets and animals.
