Fantastic Beasts London premiere red carpet

New Fantastic Beasts TV Spot Asks You To Enjoy the View

Set in 1927, some 70 years before Rowling's best-selling "Harry Potter" books and movies, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" is the second in a spinoff movie series that explores the fight between good and evil, and between tolerance and acceptance.

And though the hardcore Potter crowd are sure to derive a fair level of enjoyment from the film, for more casual viewers it'll be tough to overlook its staggering multitude of flaws and terrible creative choices.

EDDIE REDMAYNE led a magical line-up on the red carpet last night for the United Kingdom premiere of the latest Fantastic Beasts film.

The worst thing of all?

We're not saying Miller's ensembles for these Fantastic Beast premieres are more exciting than the movie itself, but, as far as critics seem to be concerned, that seems to be the case.

The trio will be joined by other stars from the film including Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz and Callum Turner for the premiere at Cineworld Leicester Square and Vue West End in London.

Aside from the fact that it would have been infinitely better if Colin Farrell's character Percival Graves didn't turn into Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, the ending begs the question as to why MACUSA simply didn't do away with Grindelwald completely. Following her escape, The Crimes of Grindelwald will follow Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) after he is recruited by Albus Dumbledore to take Grindelwald down again. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
