What's on at Greenwich Picturehouse - HOH Subtitled
The second chapter of the Fantastic Beasts franchise delves back into J. K. Rowling’s enchanting Wizarding World, swapping the hustle and bustle of 1920s New York for the moody streets of Paris a year on, where a slew of new characters and wonderful beasts await discovery.
The powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (a wildly white-haired Depp duded up in heinous style) has slipped the bars of custody and is out to purge the world of all non-magical beings. In a desperate bid to restore harmony, a young Albus Dumbledore (Law) calls upon the help of former Hogwarts student Newt Scamander (Redmayne) to stop Grindelwald and his growing army of pure-blood wizards in their tracks. But this only marks the start of a perilous quest into a world of dark magic.
From Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave) and co-writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) comes a blistering heist thriller set against a backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. This contemporary reworking of the ’80s TV miniseries tells the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. In a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Davis), Linda (Rodriguez), Alice (Debicki) and Belle (Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Liam Neeson, Brian Tyree Henry and Robert Duvall round out the brilliant cast.
