The Incredibles hero family takes on a new mission, which involves a change in family roles: Bob Parr (Mr Incredible) must manage the house while his wife Helen (Elastigirl) goes out to save the world.
Craig T. Nelson,
It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, though he's unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.Written by
Jude Law used an authentic sleight of hand move he had learned for the scene where Dumbledore presents his card to Scamander. Whether the visual outcome has then been further "tweaked" in post production or not, is (as of the film's release) up for debate, but the move itself is still easily recognisable to anyone who's ever so much as dabbled into the art of sleight of hands.

The Circus Announcer named 'Indonesia' as the place where Maledictus was found, even though the term Indonesia had not been known to the world until its independence in 1945. The region was still a Dutch colony, the official name was Dutch East Indies. See more »

... you'll be glad to get rid of him, I expect.
We'd be more than happy to keep him here in custody.
Six months are enough. It's time for him to answer for his crimes in Europe.

President Picquery, Mr. Spielman, sir. Prisoner is secured and ready to travel.
[peers into the cell with Picquery]
You've thrown everything at him, I see.
It was necessary. He's extremely powerful. We've had to change his guard three times - ...

Although a lot was promised in the trailers, it falls short of those promises in the movie. Having said that, this movie is much like Deathly Hallows Part 1 in the sense that it does not stand out when watched in isolation but understandable in the greater scheme of things, as it sets up the future movies perfectly without offering much on its own.
The acting did a good job although the script doesn't allow for anyone to standout apart from Johnny Depp, who seems to make audiences aware of the fact that he's Johnny Depp every once in a while.
Overall, I feel this movie will be better received when its sequels come out, but mediocre as it stands.
