Do you want to live 24 hours of cinema and magic? To celebrate the premiere on April 8 of ‘Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets’, Warner Bros. Pictures is once again organizing a unique event in Spain for fans of the world created by JK Rowling, the ‘Harry Potter Film Fest’, a marathon full of surprises with the 8 films of the saga of the boy who survived in theaters. Yes, yes, all eight, in a row, in order (of course), however crazy it may seem.
At eCartelera we already attended in 2018 and we will tell you everything here, an unparalleled experience that will be repeated again in 2022 in 5 cities across the country and that no wizard, witch or Muggle will want to miss. The event will take place from Saturday 26 to Sunday 27 March in Madrid (Kinépolis Ciudad de la Imagen), Valencia (Kinépolis), Granada (Kinépolis Pulianas), Alicante (Kinépolis Plaza Mar 2) and Barcelona (Cines Full) and will start at noon on Saturday and end the next morning. Tickets for the ‘Harry Potter Film Fest’ are on sale now and you can buy them in advance here or at theater box offices.
Of course, don’t forget how long each one lasts: ‘The Philosopher’s Stone’ 2h 32min, ‘The Chamber of Secrets’ 2h 41min, ‘The Prisoner of Azkaban’ 2h 22min, ‘The Goblet of Fire’ 2h 37min, ‘The Order of the Phoenix’ 2h 18min, ‘The Half-Blood Prince’ 2h 33min, ‘The Deathly Hallows: Part 1’ 2h 26min and ‘The Deathly Hallows: Part 2’ 2h 10min. That is, 19 hours and 39 minutes of cinema.
The third installment of the ‘Fantastic Animals’ franchise has been made to pray because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but finally on April 8 Dumbledore, Grindelwald, Scamander and company return to the big screen. Directed by David Yates from a screenplay by Steve Kloves and Rowling, ‘The Secrets of Dumbledore’ stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Callum Turner and Richard Coyle among others, and of course features Mads Mikkelsen taking over from Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald.
Aware that the powerful wizard and former sidekick Grindelwald plans to take over the wizarding world, Dumbledore entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead a fearless team that not only includes wizards and witches but also a certain Muggle baker on a dangerous mission that will take them up against Grindelwald’s legion of followers with fantastic beasts old and new.
