Just a month and a half ago, on April 8, hit theaters Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secretsthe third part of the pentalogy of this Harry Potter prequel based on the magical world of JK Rowling.
This film, the successor to Fantastic Animals and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Animals: The Crimes of Grindelwald from 2016 and 2018 respectively, tells us the story of one of the most important and beloved characters of the Harry Potter saga, Albus Dumbledore..
And the thing is, this third installment is mostly based on the story of the legendary headmaster of Hogwarts when he was young, showing us his past, his personal relationship with Grindelwald, and everything that made him one of the most important and powerful wizards. of all time.
The first two films of this saga have been available on HBO Max for several months now.and on May 30, this third part, just 52 days after the premiere, will be one of the fastest released on online platforms after the release in theaters.
And that’s what the default company films are usually released about three months after their release.that today the market has become excessive.
Only those production companies that have their own streaming services. films were allowed to be released with a time limit of 45 dayslike with Disney+ or like how HBO Max did well with The Batman.
It was not always so, that is, since, for example, The Matrix was available on HBO Max in the United States on the day it premiered.while in Spain we had to wait 5 months as yesterday it was available on the same platform for the Spanish market.
This is the third film in the Fantastic Beasts saga. managed to collect about 387.9 million, which is quite an important figure., although far from what Warner Bros. expected to achieve. And, perhaps, there is a reason for this, although not confirmed at all.
And the fact is that Johnny Depp was replaced by Mads Mikkelsen when it came to incarnating Gellert Grindelwald. was able to seriously affect the drop in the number of viewers who decided not to go to the cinema for this movie.
This is perhaps the only reason that can be attributed to him, but in which it should be noted that the role of Mads Mikkelsen is spectacular, for many (including me) making the protagonist and villain of this saga much more interesting than ever. Depp interpreted this, but for the color of taste.
We’ll see where this movie hits once it releases on May 30th, and if, at least online, it reaches and/or exceeds Warner Bros. expectations..
