Fantasy: A small group of wizards and allies try to stop an evil wizard from gaining more power and starting a war against his enemies.

Long ago, wizards Albus Dumbledore (JUDE LAW) and Gellert Grindelwald (MADS MIKKELSEN) planned to change the world, but the one-time lovers had a falling out and are now archenemies. Concerned about Gellert's nefarious plans but unable to directly stop him, Albus recruits magizoologist Newt Scamander (EDDIE REDMAYNE) to assist him.

Newt has seen Gellert's treachery firsthand, with the evil wizard's followers -- led by Credence Barebone (EZRA MILLER) -- kill a rare creature known as a Qilin and abduct its newborn. Such creatures can sense the true souls of people and thus are used to select new political leaders. And with an election coming up and Gellert being cleared of criminal charges levied against him, it's obvious what his plan is.

Beyond his assistant, Bunty Broadacre (Victoria Yeates), those who end up helping Newt include his brother, Theseus (Callum Turner); Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks (Jessica Williams); wizard Yusuf Kama (William Nadylam); and muggle baker Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler). He's particularly interested since his former lover, Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol), has now gone over to the dark side with Grindelwald and Jacob wants to get her back.

Using the inn run by Albus' brother, Abeforth (Richard Coyle), as their base, the rag-tag group of heroes sets out to stop the evil wizard before it's too late.

They probably will if they're fans of the earlier films or the overall Harry Potter universe.
For some fantasy action/violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
