The latest blockbuster to hit cinemas in 2018 is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, following the continuing adventures of "magizoologist" Newt Scamander. After dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald's capture in the franchise's previous installment, he soon escapes custody and begins to amass a number of loyal supporters. With Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore unable to move against Grindelwald, he enlists his former student, Newt, to do so before the dangerous wizard becomes too powerful to stop.
