As someone who has spend her Harry Potterdom wishing she could find out more about young Dumbledore and his relationship with Grindelwald, I couldn’t be more excited about the next installation in the Fantastic Beasts franchise!
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald isn’t expected for release until 2018, but the first teaser is out today! We can expect a screenplay in book format to follow soon after, as happened with the first film, and while I’m sad at the switch from book to movie, it won’t stop me watching this!
It looks amazing, and it’s the first time we’re seeing Jude Law and Johnny Depp play a young Dumbledore and Grindelwald. Take a look and let us know what you think:
In various articles Danler has said that although she has some in common with the novel’s protagonist Tess, she is not based on the author: “[she] quickly became a character, and is in many ways much better and much worse at life than I was at that age”.
The adaptation of the novel will star Ella Purnell as Tess, alongside Tom Sturridge as Jake, Caitlin FitzGerald as Simone, Evan Jonigkeit as Will, Eden Epstein as Ari, Jasmine Mathews as Heather, Daniyar as Sasha, and Paul Sparks as Howard.
You can watch Sweetbitter on Starz from May 6th 2018.
Cumberbatch will play Patrick Melrose, the titular character of the new series, adapted from the Man Booker Prize shortlisted author Edward St Aubyn’s novels.
Melrose, the main character, struggles with the damage caused by a horribly abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned his behaviour. Each episode, written by BAFTA nominee David Nicholls, is devoted to one of the five novels.
The series will also star Jennifer Jason Leigh and Hugo Weaving as the parents of Patrick Melrose.
The SHOWTIME and Sky Atlantic series will be directed by Edward Berger.
Catch new episodes of Patrick Melrose Saturdays at 9pm ET/PT only on SHOWTIME.
BY DOING IT IN SPACE!
The awesome nature of the universe and space travel, combined with one of the most every day events like reading a bedtime story, has produced something truly wonderful. From Kathleen (Kate) Rubins to the UK’s very own space hero Tim Peake, astronauts have been picking up children’s books and sharing them with us on Earth.
Patricia Tribe, the former director of education at Space Center Houston, came up with the concept along with Alvin Drew, the first NASA astronaut to read a story in space. The pair were hoping to encourage reading with children while simultaneously promoting STEM education: science, tech, engineering, and mathematics, and where is the best place to that? IN SPACE!

Wuthering Heights is based on the classic novel of the same, although Bush was actually inspired to write the song after watching a 1967 BBC mini-series adaptation of Emily Brontë. She was instantly hooked and straight away read the book, discovering that she shared her birthday (30th of July) with that particular Brontë. Serendipity!
This year, Kate Bush, along with other artists, has been commissioned to create another tribute to the Wuthering Heights author by providing words for a permanent art installation on the ‘wiley, windy moors‘ that inspired the famous tale.
After teaser trailers, official trailers telling us the release date, and now this final look at what is to come- the newest season is out today, 25th of April 2018.
