Footage From Unannounced Harry Potter Role-Playing Game May Have Just Been Leaked

It seems the Harry Potter franchise might be ready to expand on their ​role-playing games, as the free mobile device RPG Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery came out this past April, and it appears another one is already in the works.

According to ​The Verge, a video of an unannounced Harry Potter game has leaked online from a focus group in the U.S., which showed a third-person action RPG set in the 19th century of the Wizarding World. It has since been pulled by Warner Bros. for violating copyright issues, but Twitter users have uploaded it to the social media platform.

The ​Reddit user who originally posted the footage claimed they were approached in a mall to watch the game's trailer and to complete a survey for $8. According to the Redditor, cameras and phones were not supposed to be allowed at the time, but the company conducting the survey did not take them away.

A blurb released with the footage claims players can choose between eight different Wizard types, have control of the house, and pick a path of
either good or evil.

It's not certain whether the leak is real, or if it'll ever be released, but if so, it could open up a whole new world for the Harry Potter universe. With the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them prequels in full swing, along with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage play currently running in both the UK and the U.S., it could be time for another era of Hogwarts and JK Rowling's magical world.

This might just be wishful thinking, but we hope this actually is something.

Look Back at All 23 MCU Films With the Infinity Saga Box Set Trailer

While there had been plenty of popular Marvel movies prior to 2008’s Iron Man, everything changed when Robert Downey Jr. stepped into the role of Tony Stark and began the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that came the Infinity Saga, the culmination of all 23 films of phases one, two, and three of the MCU, concluding with the bittersweet Avengers: Endgame earlier this year. While fans are no doubt excited to follow Phase 4 with all the new, exciting films to come, nothing will ever be the same again.

Now that it’s all over, Marvel Studios is releasing an Infinity Saga box set of all the MCU films so far, and according to ComicBook.com, the upcoming release has also come with an emotional trailer. After debuting at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer, fans can now see the trailer on YouTube. 

The trailer features the biggest moments in the Infinity Saga leading up to Iron Man snapping the universe back into place, and sacrificing himself in the process. “What a world—universe, now,” Tony’s voice narrates. He’s got that right.

With Phase 4 of the MCU not picking back up until May 2020 with Black Widow, buying this box set might not be a bad idea. A release date has not been announced yet.

On October 11, Netflix will unleash El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie on the world at midnight. But for those Los Pollos Hermanos-loving fans who want the theatrical experience, Entertainment Weekly reports that the film will also screen in cinemas across 68 cities from October 11 to October 13.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that he filmed the movie—his feature film directorial debut—in CinemaScope 2.39 wide-screen format, making it an ideal film to watch in a theater. “Every time we’d put out a new season of Breaking Bad, we would have a premiere in a big movie theater,” Gilligan said. “I always thought, ‘This thing, it looks like a movie. It doesn’t look like a show.’ I really want to be able to share that with fans.”

Not much is known about the Jesse Pinkman movie, which filmed in secrecy last year. However, during this Sunday’s Emmys broadcast, a longer trailer will be released.

Here’s what we do know, though: Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter he worked with a fairly high budget and was able to film outside of Albuquerque. Ten “familiar” Breaking Bad characters will make appearances, including Jesse's beloved pal Badger. No matter what, the movie—whether watched in theaters, on your couch, or at your desk—will be an epic event.
