The only thing that sets it apart from the previous films is the appearance of Robin Hood himself: The legendary figure is shown in a more modern version. Starting from how to act, archery, to fight.
In addition, Taron Egerton’s version of Robin Hood also looks much younger, fresh, athletic, and charming than Russell Crowe’s Robin Hood or Kevin Costner’s first. In addition, he also mostly wears a leather jacket and hoodie. Which looks more contemporary than Middle Age costumes.
But, unfortunately, even so, Robin Hood’s modern appearance just made the critics less impressed. Because it is considered incompatible with the original Robin Hood character. His appearance in the latest version of the Robin Hood film is considered too stylish and not quite right.
Initially, the Robin Hood film produced by Summit Entertainment was planned for release on March 23, 2018, but was later postponed to this November. With the scathing criticism earlier, it is interesting to wait for the achievement of this film at the box office. Because, apart from facing the critics, Robin Hood also has to compete directly with Creed II (2018) and the animated film Disney released: Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018).
Wands at the ready, Potterheads! After two years, what Harry Potter fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. The sequel to the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) has officially aired in Indonesian cinemas starting this Wednesday (14/11).
The film, entitled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, features a much wider wizarding world. The story is set in the era of 1926-1945. The Potterheads will be taken around the world. Starting from New York, London, to Paris. Apart from that, there are also some surprises. Which, for sure, will delight fans of the Harry Potter books and film series.
The four main characters from the first film reappear in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. They are: Newt Scamander (Eddy Redmayne), Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein (Katharine Waterston), Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol), and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler). At the end of the first film, in fact, Jacob’s character was enchanted by Obliviate by Queenie. To have his memories of the wizarding world erased. However, in this second film, Jacob, who is a no-maj, is re-engaged with his new friends. All of them witches.
In this Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald film, Newt Scamander et al face their mortal enemy: Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). Which only appears briefly, as a surprise, at the ending of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ago. As the title implies, in this second film, the figure of the evil witch is indeed the central character. The character, this time, is explored more broadly.
Gellert Grindelwald, it is said, managed to escape from MACUSA (America’s Magical Congress) prison. After that, he amassed a large following to support his mission. Namely, making the pure-blood wizarding race as the ruler over the muggles and no-maj (non-magic). So, you could say, Grindelwald was a kind of Adolf Hitler of witchcraft.
