Seeing and Believing 178: Stephen Caple Jr.’s Creed 2 and David Yates’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
It’s an all-sequel edition of the show this week, as the guys take on two Thanksgiving-weekend releases that continue relatively new series. First up is the hotly anticipated Creed 2, which finds Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed squaring off against the son of the villainous Ivan Drago from the original Rocky franchise. Then Wade and Kevin take a look at the newest installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, J.K. Rowling’s latest addition to the world of Harry Potter. What happens when the wizard Newt Scamander is drawn further into the international intrigue surrounding the schemes of evil wizard Grindelwald? And does this latest film match the magic of Rowling’s best work?
