David Yates’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore,” starred by Johnny Depp and Jude Law among others, and “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania” have secured their big screen release dates in China in April. In the matter of the fact, latest move from the Hollywood franchise movies came against the backdrop of a mishap of Sony Picture’s which had botched to secure a release date for its “Spider Man: No Way Home,” a billion-dollar epic rolled out on last December, in the world’s largest theatrical market, China. Nevertheless, the latest Transylvania sequel “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania,” directed by Kluska and Drymon, will be released in Chinese theatres on April 3, 2022, just a couple of days before the Qingming or Tomb Sweeping Holidays, however, “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” will take a traditional approach and will open on April 8, a Friday.
