FANTASTIC BEASTS marketing gets desperate: see Newt and Harry on a poster together!

Harry Potter Week-IMAX

Upon clearly realising that a large quantity of moviegoers don’t know what the hell Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them is about, Warner Bros. have taken the slightly desperate move of releasing a poster that features Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander back-to-back with… none other than Harry Potter himself.

Now, Harry Potter (as far as we know… and we know for certain) doesn’t appear in Fantastic Beasts. Nor is his name likely even mentioned. The excuse for this piece of slightly misleading artwork is an upcoming IMAX screening of the original Potter movies. Sure, Beasts shares a director and author with the latter films, but there are less embarrassing ways to let people know that this movie is set in the Potter universe. Then again, maybe moviegoers really do need to be spoonfed connections like this. Sigh…
