Welcome to the news for the week of 19 October 2019. It feels like most of the big news is casting news and that The Matrix 4 is a real thing that is really happening. Sam Raimi is in back and the director’s chair and so is Robert Eggers.
All in all, it’s been a good week! Let’s take a look!
It boggles my mind that they cast Johnny Depp for this entire franchise and Colin Farrell for just the first film, but here we are. In any event, continuing the comic con catch up, here’s the new Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer:
Young Adult fiction seems like it must be pretty hard to adapt. Harry Potter made all the money, as did Twilight, and it looks like The Hunger Games will too, but most other young adult novels tend to, well, underwhelm.
Divergent is the next franchise to make a run at it, and here’s a proper trailer, theatrical poster, and character posters. Fun!
