Celebrating the magic of cinema

Filming with the stars of Fantastic Beasts 2 at Cineworld Cinemas’ London premiere

It’s not every day you get to interview legendary wizards Newt Scamander and Albus Dumbledore. But that was the mission for one Linney film crew recently, as they took to the red (or, rather, blue) carpet with Cineworld Cinemas.

Lining up with the media at the brand’s Leicester Square multiplex, we filmed the stars of sorcery sequel ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ at its glitzy UK premiere.

Actors Eddie Redmayne (who plays Scamander), Jude Law (Dumbledore) and author J.K. Rowling, who wrote the film’s screenplay, were among those who shared their joy of working on the project – and the magic of cinema experiences as a whole.

Set in the days before the Harry Potter books and film series, the highly anticipated ‘sequel to the prequel’ follows 2016’s ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, upping the ante in both stakes and star power.

It’s one of a series of high-profile releases we’ve captured the launch excitement of this year. Other red carpet adventures have included the fan screening of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’, the UK premiere of ‘Sherlock Gnomes’, plus London Film Festival galas including ‘Widows’ and ‘Stan and Ollie’.

For each, a producer, camera operator, editor and animator have turned around high-impact edits for Cineworld’s social channels within 48 hours.

These productions are real privilege to work on, and a great opportunity to add value and deliver at pace for a client and industry close to our hearts.
