Q: Does watching movies involving fiction (gods, magic, etc.) invlove shirk or kufr?
A: You should understand that when the film relates to gods and idols, it relates to shirk and kufr. For one to entertain himself with kufr and shirk is a sign that one is pleased with kufr and shirk. The Fuqaha have mentioned that to be pleased with kufr is kufr.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
