Cannes Critics’ Week Unveils Its Lineup

  • Variety
Lorcan Finnegan’s science-fiction thriller “Vivarium” with Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, Jérémy Clapin’s fantasy-filled animated feature “I Lost My Body,” and Hlynur Pálmason’s Icelandic drama “A White, White Day” are among the 11 films set to compete at Critics’ Week, the section dedicated to first and second films that runs parallel with the Cannes Film Festival.

Vivarium,” described by Critics’ Week’s artistic director Charles Tesson as reminiscent of “The Twilight Zone” and “The Truman Show,” follows a young couple (Eisenberg and Poots) who have just moved into a new housing development and find themselves in a maze of identical homes and a surreal world.

“A White, White Day” marks Pálmason’s follow up to his 2017 feature debut, “Winter Brothers,” which won three prizes at Locarno, followed by a healthy festival run. “A White, White Day” stars Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”) as an

J.K. Rowling says she is “genuinely happy” with Johnny Depp casting in Fantastic Beasts

Jk Rowling has defended the casting of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise, saying she is “genuinely happy” to have the actor playing a major role.

Controversy has swirled around Depp’s casting as magical villain Gellert Grindelwald in the franchise, in which he is set to play a major role following his brief cameo in the first film.

The actor was accused of assault by his then-wife Amber Heard in May 2016, while Heard was filing for divorce from the star.

In a statement on her website, author and screenwriter Rowling said she and director David Yates had considered recasting Depp when the allegations against him surfaced.

She said: “When Johnny Depp was cast as Grindelwald, I thought he’d be wonderful in the role. However, around the time of filming his cameo in the first movie, stories had appeared in the

Meanwhile, speaking to EW, director David Yates discussed the tone of the upcoming sequel; “The first film had a level of whimsy; the characters felt like children in grown-up bodies,” “In this movie, it gets grittier and more nuanced and detailed. It’s quite a romantic film, it’s a thriller, it’s quite an interesting combination of genres you rarely see together. I think it will surprise people.”

Fantastic Beasts director defends keeping Johnny Depp for The Crimes of Grindelwald

Having made his debut as Gellert Grindelwald with a very brief cameo in 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Johnny Depp will be taking on a much larger role in next year’s sequel as he returns as the dark wizard in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Given Depp’s recent troubles, including accusations of domestic abuse from his ex-wife Amber Heard, the film’s producers have come in for criticism from some quarters with regards to his continued involvement in the franchise, and now director David Yates has come out to defend the star and his role in the sequel.

“Honestly, there’s an issue at the moment where there’s a lot of people being accused of things, they’re being accused by multiple victims, and it’s compelling and frightening,” Yates told EW. “With Johnny, it seems to me there was one person who

Fantastic Beasts producer on how The Crimes of Grindelwald expands J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World

Following this month’s title reveal and first look image, producer David Heyman has been chatting to EW about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and how the upcoming sequel to the Harry Potter spinoff will expand upon J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

“We delve deeper into Jo’s wizarding world — we’re in Paris, we’re in London and New York — the world is expanding,” said Heyman. “As you can tell from the image, we’re following quite a few characters. The new film has a very different feel than the first. It’s got a thriller quality. And it’s also a story about love and passion and all its forms — paternal, romantic, political. And it’s just a thrilling and very fun adventure. We took all we’ve learned from one and just expanded that and created a richer, deeper and more thrilling film which I’m

Fantastic Beasts producer on casting Jude Law as Dumbledore in The Crimes of Grindelwald

This past week, Warner Bros. unveiled an official image from the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel – now titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – which included our very first look at Jude Law as the legendary wizard Albus Dumbledore.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts producer David Heyman discussed Law’s casting, stating what qualities he feels that the actor brings to the iconic role:

One of the reasons we chose Jude is he has many of the qualities we find in Dumbeldore in the Potter films. He’s got authority, he’s got a twinkle in his eye, he’s sometimes a bit elliptical. So you have that but also have this youthful energy and jubilance. So he brings that twinkle, mischief, authority, and power, but at the same time brings far more youthful energy to the film. You understand why

Fantastic Beasts 2 to feature even more Harry Potter surprises

While he was doing the rounds promoting Paddington 2 [read our review here], super-producer David Heyman (Gravity, I Am Legend) spoke to Digital Spy about the mission statement for the next Fantastic Beasts film and its subsequent sequels.

Heyman stated “I think the pleasure of these Fantastic Beasts films is that they’ll work on their own terms. You don’t need to know Harry Potter to enjoy them, but if you do, you have another layer, another level to enjoy. I’m very excited as more nuggets drop and audiences respond. Fans will be incredibly excited. This next film is different to the first, but each film will march to its own beat and have its own tone. I don’t yet know if the series will get darker, although all of them will be fun and entertaining.”
