On episode 39 of Los Fanboys Podcast, Kellvin, Mario, and Jammer take an in-depth look at this week’s box office. High on that list is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but is $74 million this past weekend enough to make WB happy? Are they panicking and slowly changing the story to make it more Harry Potter-focused? The trio discuss that before putting in their two cents about Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, and a couple of new trailers that dropped.
