Things We Saw Today: Jude Law as Young Dumbledore, and Johnny Depp I Guess
There’s no such thing as too many visuals of Jude Law dressed to the nines and rocking that ’20s wizarding vibe as Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Also Johnny Depp is here too, as this movie insists on reminding us.
Collider declares that Law’s Dumbledore is “very-high-in-sex-appeal” here, and we can’t say that we disagree. It’s not quite the Albus we’re used to but perhaps the Albus that we deserve in 2018. Law, with neat, pre-silvered beard in place, is snazzy as hell in his Jazz Age ensemble amidst a room of curious objects. Say what you will about the rest of the production’s decisions, at least this movie is going to look, well, fantastic.
And because it seems like we get two steps back for every step forward where Beasts is concerned, there’s also a new picture of Johnny Depp as the titular crime-stained Grindelwald, and Poppy Corby-Tuech as his supporter Rosier. Let’s look at her and her stunning ensemble instead. Those heels! That velvet cloak-jacket! The hat!
Remember that we could have had Colin Farrell. We could have had it all.

- Hollywood legend Rose Marie has died at the age of 94. Called “the longest working actor in show business,” Marie is best remembered for her game-changing role as TV writer Sally Rogers, “who went toe-to-toe in a man’s world,” on The Dick Van Dyke Show in the 1950s. Active on Twitter, most recently she was a strong, wise and witty voice calling out Hollywood’s culture of sexual harassment. I’ll never forget watching reruns of the Dick Van Dyke show growing up and loving the way that Sally could always hold her own. (via Vulture)
- Avengers: Infinity War is the most-anticipated movie of 2018, according to a Fandango survey.

- NASA teamed up with American Girl to create Luciana Vega, a new character and doll. Luciana is 11 years old and an aspiring astronaut who wants to be the first person to set foot on Mars and everything about this is wonderful (via PC Mag)
- The best idea: here’s how to follow along and create your own at-home streaming version of the Syfy channel’s annual Twilight Zone marathon. These marathons were my absolute favorite media event as a kid and probably explain a lot about me as an adult. (via Paleofuture)
