Stranger Things Posters - The Goonies Poster

We’ve still got some time until the second season of Stranger Things starts streaming on Netflix just before Halloween. The brand new trailer that debuted at Comic-Con was good enough to hold us over for awhile, but we’ll take whatever we can get to whet our appetite.

That’s why we’re glad the official Stranger Things Twitter account is partaking in a promotional endeavor called #StrangerThursdays, where they rewatch each episode of the first season every Thursday (leading up to the second season premiere) and live tweet with cheeky posts, behind the scenes details about specific scenes and more. The coolest part of this lead-up is they kick off an episode by revealing a new Stranger Things poster inspired by one of the 1980s movies that influenced the show.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be updating this post with the newest Stranger Things posters, but you can see which ones have been revealed below, as well as the original posters that inspired them. Read More »

amityville the awakening release date

Few films have been pushed back over and over again as often as Amityville: The Awakening. Even the notoriously delayed Tulip Fever didn’t suffer as unceremonious a fate as this Amityville Horror sequel. Now it seems the much-delayed fright flick will finally have its day, unless it gets bumped again. When will the Amityville The Awakening release date be? Find out below.

mulholland drive

Until a few months ago, if the name David Lynch came up in film discussion, I would have inwardly shrugged. It had been years since I watched one of Lynch’s films. It had also been years since Lynch had even made a new feature (the last one being Inland Empire in 2006). But after screening Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, and Mulholland Drive back in the day, I felt I had sampled enough of the director’s work to know that I was not a fan. His films just never spoke to me. Individual moments lingered in memory, but if anything, I was only confounded and disturbed by those moments.

What to make of the closet scene from Blue Velvet? Or the party scene from Lost Highway? More than any semblance of plot, it was scenes like those that lingered in memory. If someone started talking about Lynch, I would immediately think of that moment when Frank Booth, played by Dennis Hopper, starts inhaling gas from an oxygen mask and moaning “Mommy” before sinking to his knees between a woman’s legs. I believe they call that nightmare fuel.

Fast forward a decade or so. Last year, Mulholland Drive topped a BBC poll of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century. Over 175 film critics from around the world voted on this thing. Hearing it was unbelievable enough, but when I looked at the list, and saw it there in writing, I was only further confounded. What were these critics seeing that I was missing?

And this began my journey into the world of Mulholland Drive and David Lynch. A journey I’m glad I took (and one I recommend you take, too).

glass unbreakable actors

M. Night Shyamalan is pulling out all the stops for his next film, Glass, and connecting it to Unbreakable in more ways than one. As the filmmaker prepares to start production in Philadelphia, his latest seems like a culmination of everything he’s learned up until now. It finds him returning to Unbreakable, one of his best movies and combining it with his most recent hit Split. And now the Unbreakable connection has only been strengthened, as word has arrived that Shyamalan has added two Unbreakable actors in Glass. See the Unbreakable sequel casting below.

bojack horseman season 5

BoJack Horseman, the funniest show about self-loathing you’ll ever see, is one of the best original shows on Netflix. Somehow able to combine extremely sharp, often obscure jokes with crushing yet keen reflections on depressing, it’s a truly remarkable piece of pop entertainment. And Netflix isn’t horsing around about it, either. Per BoJack Horseman’s own Twitter account, straight from the horse’s mouth, comes word that Netflix has greenlit Bojack Horseman Season 5.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Palpatine hologram

Rumors are stubborn things. The internet has made rumor a type of religion; something spread far and wide with staunch believers who refuse to accept anything but their own patented version of the truth. “It has to be true,” they might argue. “I saw it on the internet.” If there’s one film franchise the generates rumors left and right, it’s Star Wars.

With the production on the new films notoriously kept secret, the internet has no other recourse than to speculate wildly. They’ll take any source they can find and try to make it fit into a theory, even if that source just happens to be from something as innocuous a toy. Such wild speculation and rumor are now swirling around a hologram spotted within a LEGO First Order Star Destroyer set – a hologram purported to be of Emperor Palpatine. Does this hint at a return of a long-dead Star Wars character, or are we all getting excited over something with a much more germane answer? How true is this The Last Jedi Palpatine rumor? The only way for you to know for sure is to keep reading.
