Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them title card

Warner Brothers Pictures has released the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the spinoff prequel to their juggernaut Harry Potter movie franchise.

The new movie is set 70 years before the events of Harry Potter, and follows a magizoologist (someone who studies and catalogs the various magical creatures of the wizarding world) named Newt Scamander (played by Academy Award winner and likely upcoming Academy Award nominee Eddie Redmayne) who visits New York with a briefcase full of magical creatures, some of which end up escaping. Scamander is the author of the textbook of the same name, which would one day be studied by the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including none other than Harry Potter himself.

You can check out the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them below.

The Wild Bunch

Two landmark motion pictures have hit the 45th anniversary milestone this year, and both of them were instrumental in helping usher in the kind of norms, sensibilities, and somewhat radical attitudes that were beginning to burgeon in Tinseltown as the 1960s gave way to the 1970s.

One of them, The Wild Bunch, took screen violence and the western narrative to an entirely different level; the other, Midnight Cowboy, not only became the first X-rated motion picture to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it also exemplified a kind of realistic film in which the narrative doused its characters in strife, pain, and struggle, and didn’t offer a seamless resolution at its denouement, but rather the contrary. Its kind of downer tale also became a style and staple for many of the films which followed it into the mid 1970s such as Scarecrow, The Last Detail, etc.

The Biography Channel a lot of William Shatner’s-themed programming this month, which includes the debut of his new talk show Shatner’s Raw Nerve on Tuesday, December 2, at 10pm.

The show will feature Shatner interviewing fellow celebrities, probing them with sensitive questions to touch upon “raw nerve” subjects.

The first episode is with actress Valerie Bertinelli, where they discuss her former marriage to rock star Eddie Van Halen, her son Wolfgang, and her past addictions to food. Future episodes will have Shatner digging deep with Tim Allen, Jimmy Kimmel, Jenna Jameson, Kelsey Grammer, and Judge Judy (see current air date schedule here below). Some yet-to-be scheduled episodes will see Jon Voight and Shatner’s Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy in the hot seat.

Also this month, the cable channel will run their one-hour special, Biography: William Shatner — you can catch it today at 11AM ET — as well as Star Trek: Captain’s Log hosted by Shatner, which has interviews with cast members from the original Star Trek series.

An American CarolFOX News has shown the first trailer for spoof man David Zucker‘s (Airplane) upcoming political bash, An American Carol. Watch it here below.

The film stars Kevin Farley (Chris’s brother) as a filmmaker spoof on Michael Moore who’s running around doing… political stuff. As the title would suggest, it’s in the same vein as A Christmas Carol where Michael Malone is visited by some ghosts like General Patton (Kelsey Grammer) and George Washington (Jon Voight). There’s also a lot of other big names involved, but that’s about as much as anyone really can stomach information wise.

The movie looks really just terrible but I decided to cover it because two things stood out to me I felt were worth note.
