    Don't ask me why.

    Can't wait. Eddie Redmayne was AMAZING in The Danish Girl. Can't wait to see him tackle a franchise.

    Eddie Redmayne was born to be in a Harry Potter movie
  6. Tailer looks terrible and Redmayne is gonna ruin the franchise.

    There, I said it.

    Am I the only one who finds his acting consistently laughable?
  7. Nahhhhh

    There's no book to read. JK Rowling wrote it as a screenplay.

    There is s book, it's just really short and it's basically the book that exists in the Harry Pottet universe

    Yeah but nothing that's going to spoil anything.

  12. You know how thespians on the stage will often over-act things because people have to see everything in the back, as well as the need for a larger-than-life presence to help suspend disbelief while sitting in a theater with obvious props and such?

    That's how I fell Redmayne's acting is, except with a camera pointed at his face to capture all his over-exaggerated glory. He never, to me at least, actually feels like he's in the scene. His acting comes across as trying too hard, trying to impress instead of actually buying into the role. I've never "believed" a single role I've seen him in. And some of the facial expressions he made in the Fantastic Beasts trailer literally did make me laugh out loud, as if he doesn't even know what emotions he's trying to convey.

    In the words of the great Gordon Ramsey " You're off your trolley!"

    But seriously, fair enough. I like him ok, he isn't my favorite or anything, but I feel he definitely looks the part for the universe it's set in.

    Ah cool. Well regardless, definitely stoked. Trailer really caught my interest.

    Don't ask me why.

    I've only ever seen him in The Theory of Everything and The Danish Girl - found him entirely captivating in both. But, I'm a romantic. Maybe that's just me.

    I haven't been this excited for something HP-related since the release of Deathly Hallows...can't wait!

    I''ll be the one to point out and get hyped over the fact that this basically looks like a Doctor Who / Harry Potter hybrid in the best way.
