Fear Street Opening Scene

Fear Street Part 1: 1994 hits Netflix this week, kicking off the first in a new trilogy inspired by the work of R.L. Stine. Ahead of the first film’s premiere, Netflix has gone ahead and released the first 5 minutes. The opening scene features Stranger Things breakout Maya Hawke as a very unlucky mall employee being targeted by a masked killer. It’s an opening meant to invoke the now-iconic opening scene of Scream, and it’s pretty damn rad. So head to the mall, grab an Orange Julius, buy something offensive from Spencer’s Gifts, and watch the Fear Street opening scene below.

mainstream trailer

Those darn kids these days, with their smartphones and Snapchats and, uh, LiveJournals! When will they stop looking at the screen and see the big picture? I don’t know, but in the meantime, here’s Mainstream, a very loud-seeming movie from director Gia Coppola. Stranger Things breakout Maya Hawke plays a young woman hoping for internet stardom, and she soon gets her wish when she teams up with a mysterious weirdo played by Andrew Garfield. But fame corrupts, as the saying goes, and online celebrity might not be all it’s cracked up to be. Watch the Mainstream trailer below.

Stranger Things Season 3 Twist

One of the best things about Stranger Things 3 is the return of unlikely buddies Steve (Joe Keery) and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo). But their friendship is made even more fun by the dry, sarcastic addition of Steve’s fellow Scoops Ahoy! co-worker Robin (played by Maya Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman), making them the most satisfying team-up of the show’s third season. But there’s one particular element of this relationship that wasn’t always part of the original plan.

Find out what we’re talking about below, but beware of spoilers for the third season of Stranger Things. Read More »

once upon a time in hollywood cast

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood keeps adding more stars to its already-stacked cast. But while this latest addition is a big name, it’s also a wholly unexpected choice.

Lena Dunham is joining Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood cast in an undisclosed role. Though the Girls creator has earned a slew of Emmy nominations for her work on the HBO series, this will be Dunham’s first ever role in a major Hollywood feature. Not to mention, it’ll be the first role in which she won’t be playing a 21st century millennial.

little women first look

Little Women is one of the all-time classic American stories, so it makes sense that it’s being adapted into a television series by the…BBC?
