JK Rowling expands the universe of "Harry Potter"
• JK Rowling expands the universe of "Harry Potter"
In the second of the five movies about magicians precursor of Harry Potter by JK Rowling continues to explore new literary genres - and there most definitely knocks muggle confused.
1927 th year, New York; from the US Department of magic, like a not yet built the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs, runs a terrible criminal Green de Wald (Johnny Depp) - an albino with red eyes, the gift of infinite persuasion passion for black suit and a detailed plan of enslavement of mankind. Meanwhile, in London magician-zoozaschitniki Newt Salamander (Eddie Redmayne) satisfied with beating typical British functionaries and spies: remember American tour and prohibit travel abroad. And it is very unfortunate, because both Newt and Green de Wald need to how to get into the only city in the world as soon as possible, where you can have a good time, nothing, in fact, not doing - Paris. After all, somewhere in the magical circus freaks hiding orphan Creedence (Ezra Miller) - the most powerful wizard in the world, has not chosen side of the force.
The prohibitions prohibitions, but in the end will be in France, all the characters of the film, except that the young Dumbledore (Jude Law), immersed in the learning process. Beginner Auror Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) and rejecting it at once two worlds sister Quinn (Alison Syudol). In love with Quinn man-donut Kowalski (comedian Dan Fogler) and love in two brothers Salamander fairy Summer Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz). And also Korean beautiful werewolf (Claudia Kim) and a black magician (William Nadilam), which is, for that to take revenge on the white British.
The main difference between "Fantastic creatures" from the "Harry Potter", we recall, is that they work without cover: no books no JK Rowling every story writes itself from the ground up as a writer, and it shows that the writer a little tired of the British literary Azkaban and now she wants to travel around the world. Film 2016, was a literary experiment resettlement of the English novel of education on American soil: the plot discernible references to Dreiser, and political intrigue reminiscent of the "whole of the royal ratification". The second film, despite the chronological inconsistency, is reminiscent of "Arc de Triomphe" Remarque - a drama about people of different beliefs and nationalities trapped in Paris before the war. What it was up in Europe Green de Wald, very similar to the second world - although one of the subject turns to the finish line of the film and make us to doubt. Generally, about each of the characters you can write a single text, which must have already lived in the head Rowling. French novel about revenge; English novel about an orphan; American novel about the struggle for power; Russian novel about a trembling creature. Les Miserables and brethren, and Muggle wizards suddenly asking the same question that Raskolnikov, and in general the story strangely reminiscent of "The Possessed". All this, of course, the chance, but because they happen and that Rowling was up to something more than "Harry Potter" - although he was already in itself was a work of biblical proportions.
At Warner Bros. while a slightly different task than Rowling: After the second part of "Fantastic creatures" become the main answer to this production company "Star Wars" Disney. Ezra Miller lighting conditions very similar to Adam Driver, and between the characters revealed so many family ties, that it is time to wait for offensive comparisons with the "Santa Barbara". But as the family saga "Fantastic creature" promise much more than "Star Wars." Firstly, anti-totalitarian fantasy of the 20th century, much closer to the earthly sorrows than space opera. Second, in the "Fantastic creatures" chosen, perhaps, the most powerful of all the blockbuster ensemble cast - at least the talents of stars are used economically and efficiently. The real magic happens with Johnny Depp; it is impossible to get enough of Jude Law, is hitting the target every joke Dan Vogler; that until Eddie Redmayne, the most powerful of his scenes, oddly enough, it is shown in the first person. And thirdly, a great writer JK Rowling, once responsible for the five scenarios, yet tells a much more coherent story than the author, in shifts working on episodes of "Star Wars." Rowling has promised that the actions of the fifth part of the "Fantastic creatures" will be completed in 1945 - and already this fact makes a fabulous saga more intriguing and frightening than fiction and comics. And for David Yates's latest film will be the ninth on creativity Rowling - that is, by 2024, the ninth year it will devote tandem with her a good half of his professional life.
So far, about their union can not say anything bad. "Fantastic creature" - and revived the book, and the most literary blockbuster of all currently facing; and topical journalism, epic and timeless; and Carnival computer beings, and the triumph of live actors; and a parable, and a tale. The magic word.
