Happy Halloween, boils and ghouls! While you’re waiting for your work day to end, today’s Movie Morsels should help keep you in the holiday spirit, with creepy critters, brutish behemoths, and even a bit of witchcraft. Let’s see, we’ve got the very first clip from the uber-anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a new trailer for Kong: Skull Island, the latest poster for the vampire-centric Underworld: Blood Wars, an update on Jurassic World 2, and more. But don’t worry, because you won’t find any tricks here. Just treats!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
If you skipped your last meal and you’re feeling a little hungry right now, my advice is to avoid watching the following clip from the long-awaited Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Because it will only make you famished! The clip sees some of the film’s magic being used for making a truly mouth-watering-looking meal. But hey, if you’re already full, well then by all means, dig in to this!

Though I realize this clip isn’t much to go on, I honestly think I’d be okay with the film if it proved nothing more than a series of magical cooking demonstrations. Provided those demos are all as savory as this one.
Kong: Skull Island
The following new Japanese trailer for Kong: Skull Island doesn’t offer much more of this chemistry then the recent U.S. trailer, but it does give us a glimpse at some new action footage, albeit in Japanese. Will Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) be able to protect King Kong from a decidedly anti-ape Nick Fury (a.k.a. Samuel Jackson)? The answer arrives with the film’s release on March 10th.
Underworld: Blood Wars
It’s your latest opportunity to bask in the Beckinsale! Yes, Kate the Great is back in her fourth Underworld movie, which is said to feature bigger vampire-Lycan battles than ever. The film’s latest poster shows the franchise star getting amped up for battle.
As unbelievable as it might seem, after his Fantastic Four reboot tanked at the box office, and after leaving the Star Wars standalone film he was slated to direct, Josh Trank is having another go at high-profile filmmaking. Moreover, he just recruited no less a star than Tom Hardy for his next project. In Fonzo, Hardy will play a 48-year-old Al Capone, who, after enduring 10 years in prison, begins experiencing some hallucinations in the final days of his life.
Jurassic World 2
Last but not least today, some sad news… It looks like Jurassic World‘s second funniest actor won’t be back for the film’s sequel. Alas, New Girl star Jake Johnson has revealed on Twitter that he hasn’t heard anything about reprising his role as the blockbuster’s lovable dino fanboy. Though since Colin Trevorrow has said Jurassic World 2 will be a much darker film than his first foray in Steven Spielberg’s sandbox, perhaps that’s all for the best.
From what I hear Lowery will not be in JW2. https://t.co/M7xgPLiRWj
