The Harry Potter universe just got a whole lot bigger.
And a whole lot sexier.
Not sure what it is, but much like Benedict Cumberbatch’s undeniable yet almost indescribable hotness, Eddie Redmayne makes our muggle heart go pitter-patter.
In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Redmayne stars as a wizard in 1920s New York City on the hunt for a rare beast. The lover of the rarest of animals already has a vast knowledge of the most bizarre creatures in existence and aims to protect them from extinction. It’s a difficult task, too, considering the Big Apple’s human citizens are currently in conflict with the city’s closeted wizard community and lots of crazy things are happening.
Filled with adult themes, due to a grown-up cast replacing the kiddies of the Harry Potter movies, Fantastic Beasts delivers plenty of political undertones, incredible special effects and some genuinely chilling moments.
Plus plenty of Redmayne’s adorable, crooked smile.
And one awesome surprise near the end.
