Venture into the wizarding world with the latest remake of one of J K Rowling’s books.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them 2: The Crimes Of Grindelwald sees Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his team of wizards rejoin to battle the dark and dastardly Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
At the end of the first film, the powerful Grindelwald was captured by the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA), with the help of Newt.
But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody again and has set about gathering followers to raise pure-blood wizards and witches up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart his plans, a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt, who agrees to help unaware of the dangers which lie ahead.
Love and loyalty is put to the test among even the truest of friends and family as the Wizarding World is divided.
Once again Newt will call upon his fantastic array of mythical and magical beasts to battle the evil battalion.
