216 - FI

This week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News begins with a discussion of the next movie in the Harry Potter universe—the prequel (of sorts) called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The hosts reveal everything we know thus far about the impending film, including a breakdown of the plot summary.

Like some of my fellow critic friends, I started the month with a Bond binge, by the time I got to the end of Diamonds Are Forever – the 3rd movie in the franchise, I slapped myself thinking “What am I doing?” I didn’t want to OD on Bond before seeing the latest installment in one of my favorite franchises. I love me some Bond, but I hated Daniel Craig‘s last three Bond films – yes even the critically and financially successful Skyfall (I know I’m alone on my island with this opinion).

Seriously, check out the new teaser after the jump and see what you think. Spectre opens on November 6th.
