It’s been quite the year to be a Harry Potter fan! The Cursed Child was released at the end of July, there are three ‘new’ stories coming from the Potterverse, and now the rumour mill is going mad with news of a Pokemon Go style game for Harry Potter fans!
There’s no doubt that the augmented reality game, Pokemon Go has been the big thing of the year, and now we’re hearing rumours of Harry Potter Go too! There’s been no official announcement from either the Rowling Camp, or Niantic but an unofficial trailer of the game has just gone viral on social media.
To date 55,000 people have signed an online petition in support of a Harry Potter version of the augmented reality game, and here’s the video of what it might look like. We’ll be keeping our ears close to the ground and we promise to bring you any official news as we have it!
Firstly let me say that violin solo is everything, the soundtrack sounds absolutely amazing and I am beyond excited to see the next instalment of this fantastic series.
And now, but, but, Nagini! Given how many animagi are in the original Harry Potter series, I shouldn’t be all that surprised that the snake that become a horcrux was originally a person, a woman at that. In the trailer you see Nagini in her human form transforming into snake, we’re hoping it’ll be explained how she ended up being trapped in snake form.
We’ve been waiting patiently for the full trailer and now, less than a month until the show launches, it’s here. The adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House is a modern reimagining of the iconic horror story about five siblings who grew up in America’s most haunted house. It’s available on Netflix from October 12th, and here’s that trailer… if you dare!
It’s over 50 years since the original film adaptation with Julie Andrews in the starring role. This time Emily Blunt is picking up the mantel as Mary Poppins returns to London to help the Banks’ family once more.
Here’s the trailer, what do you think?
The story follows a group of young Asian people (the book tells the story through each of their perspectives) and is centred around the wedding between Singapore’s most eligible bachelor, Colin Khoo, and a fashion icon, Araminta Lee. The author was inspired by family members, particularly his paternal grandparents who showed Kwan how to live a life of quiet confidence and elegance. Despite some cynicism from his editor about the lavish displays of wealth in the book, Kwan defended his descriptions, noting: “truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to details”.
The adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians is a sumptuous feast for the eyes as well as a classic tale of boy-meets-girl-his-mother-does-not-approve-of, all wrapped up in a bow of traditions and rituals of families in Singapore. Directed by Jon M. Chu under Warner Bros. Pictures- check out the trailer below.
