Jude Law plays young Dumbledore in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ sequel

‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’ will be released in November 2018.

The dangerous wizard Gellert Grindelwald is back with a plan to dominate the muggle world in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, titled The Crimes of Grindelwald. The movie is the second of a five-part series that lead up to the events introduced by JK Rowling in 1997 in her Harry Potter novels. The movie will be released on November 16 next year.

Directed by David Yates and produced by Warner Bros, the film will also see Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller and Zoë Kravitz reprise their roles from the first installment. The sequel introduces Jude Law as a younger version of Dumbledore, a genius and noble wizard who eventually goes on to become headmaster of the Hogwarts wizarding school.

Set in 1920s New York, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) centres on British magical zoologist Newt Scamander (Redmayne). The film, inspired by a book by Rowling of the same name, earned more than $814 million worldwide and won an Academy award for Best Costume Design. This was also Rowling’s debut as screenwriter.

While the first film ends with the imprisonment of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), the reigning dark wizard in the days before Voldemort, the sequel begins with the evil magician breaking out of prison. As Grindelwald recruits followers in his quest to enslave all non-magical people to the pure-blooded magical race, Dumbledore teams up with his former student Scamander to thwart the wizard.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
